Letter to Council

Given the high level of study and evidence it is clear to me that fluoridation of drinking water is untenable, sceintifiucally and ethically

As my representative in city council, I am requesting that my right to medical consent be respected. The right of consent should be universal, all women and men should have the right to determine what is put in their bodies. Hexafluorosilicic acid and its derivatives are not natural products, but are in fact toxic byproducts of the phosphate fertilizer manufacturing process.

There is ample evidence that a) it is toxic and b) its alleged cavity preventive status when swallowed is contestable. The practice of dumping toxic waste fluoride compounds in municipal water supplies has been challenged by many scientists all over the world on its ethics and scientific validity. Most of Canada and almost of all of Europe has either never started or quit this practice. Forced medication of women and their children is very wrong especially in a province that has a long history of human rights abuses. Water is Sacred, forcing medication is not something to be treated lightly, dumping a toxic waste in rivers and lakes via the water supply as a health initiative is hard to swallow.

As my Representative at city council i would like to remind you that you are not my doctor and I am requesting that my right to medical consent be respected.
The National Institute of Health is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is the largest biomedical research agency in the world. In a meta analysis of nearly one hundred studies they provide ample scientific evidence of why fluoride should not be a forced medication. On the back of a toothpaste tube there is an FDA warning against swallowing. Fluoride is a toxic poison on par with lead and arsenic, while beneficial for tooth enamel on contact , swallowing it presents a health risk that varies depending on individual preconditions. Other agencies such as Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) state “we believe that fluoridation of drinking water is scientifically untenable, and should not be part of a public health initiative or program.”
The NIH meta study concludes that “given the questionable evidence of benefit and increasing evidence of harm the policy of water fluoridation for the prevention of dental caries should be abandoned in favour of more effective interventions combining communitywide and targeted oral health interventions.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956646/

Fluoride is recognized as Toxic by the National Research Council of Canada. The waste Hexafluorosilicic acid from phosphate fertilizer manufacturers like Mosaic or Nutrien is disposed of directly to drinking water or converted to granular sodium silico fluoride. This product is not the naturally occurring calcium fluoride – which is also damaging and toxic above 4 parts per million. Calcium fluoride is much safer to handle and stable unlike the waste stream compound mentioned earlier. The toxic waste is highly reactive with everything it touches. This is the nature of the fluorine atom. It is the most reactive element in the periodic table. As such it readily combines with aluminium and lead and this is of particular concern for children. Fluoride can cross the blood brain barrier and act as a pathway for aluminium and lead into the developing brain at far greater rates than compared to aluminium or lead alone. Aluminium, lead and fluoride itself are recognized as neurotoxins. For children and the fluoride sensitive, the chronic damage and inflammation is another pathway of damage. Gut health is crucial and fluoride is no friend the delicate bacterial biome of the intestine. Fluoride acts as a barrier-breaking agent, over time resulting in a compromised gut lining or what is commonly referred to as ‘leaky gut’. Fluoride also interferes with acid secretion and bacteria in the gut. This alteration to the gut biome profile increases the risk of developing ulcers and affect nutrition.A large portion of Fluoride consumed is converted to Hydrogen Fluoride upon contact with the gastric juices. Hydrogen Fluoride is highly toxic and an additional irritant to the body. Damage to the gastrointestinal tract caused by low level exposure to Fluoride has been studied for a very long time [Roholm 1937] and has prompted numerous national governments to ban or prevent the practice of Fluoridation [Quebec 1979]. It is recognized as a problem by numerous organizations involved in public health protection [UNICEF 1999, NRC 2006, WHO 2014].
