Thirty-three Canadian cities have refused fluoride to date

What we get added to our drinking water is not natural fluoride, which is created from water flowing over rocks (Dr. James Beck). We get hydrofluorosilicic acid, a hazardous waste byproduct from the aluminum and phosphate industries.

What we get added to our drinking water is not natural fluoride, which is created from water flowing over rocks (Dr. James Beck). We get hydrofluorosilicic acid, a hazardous waste byproduct from the aluminum and phosphate industries.

Broken down, hydrofluorosilicic acid is “hydro (water), fluo (fluoride), silicic (sand) and since there is no electron it becomes an acid” (Dr. David Kennedy). He says if you submerge your hand in the fluoride water, you will die. If more than a pea size amount of fluoride toothpaste is put on a toothbrush and is accidently swallowed, or if it is put into a bottle of water and you drink it, you will die.

A serious question needs to be asked why our Canadian and World Health Organizations are allowing the dangerous hydrofluosilicic acid in our municipal water supply in the first place?

Many studies worldwide show harmful effects to organs such as the bones (makes them brittle), the thyroid, the pineal gland, the brain (Alzheimer’s), lowering of the IQ, damaging nerve cells, and harmful to babies. Just read the warning labels on products where fluoride is used (e.g. toothpaste, rat poison).

Many countries and continents such as Europe, India, Japan, China, Asia as well as in Canada, 96 per cent of B.C., recently Calgary (November 2011) and Okotoks in Alberta that we know of, as well as approximately two-thirds of the U.S., with Florida in March 2012, all have opted to remove fluoride from their municipal water.

Fluoridation uses a one size fits all approach with no control on the amount consumed daily (Dr. Phyllis Mullenix).

It is not an essential element or nutrient for human growth and development.

It is not a preventive measure as shown by over 2,000 worldwide studies.

In fact, studies show that the teeth of non-fluorinated areas are just as good if not better than fluorinated ones (Dr. Tim Kropp).

Just Google fluoride and see for yourself.

“You take it for a lifetime because it’s meant to help someone else’s teeth. Unfortunately, if 51 per cent of all the voters in town say they want fluoride everyone gets medicated.” (Dr. Paul Connett, chemist).

Where is our freedom to choose what is right for our body? You certainly have that right with any drug you take.

I resent the fact that our human body is being used as a filtration system for the chemical companies who are using our bodies as the dumping ground for their undisposable hazardous waste.
