Canada - Fluoride fate to be determined at next civic election

Fluoride fate to be determined at next civic election
Monday, October 26, 2009
Fort St. John City Council has decided fluoride will remain the city's drinking water, at least for now.
In July, Council voted to take the water out of the water supply, after concerned resident Dorothy Folk presented a petition to remove the chemical.
At Monday's City Council meeting, Councilor Dan Davies asked that council reconsider its position. He says his research has found the chemical has more positives than negatives.
Councilor Larry Evans and Councilor Trevor Bolin say they are sticking to their positions. They both agree fluoride should be removed.
But, Councilor Christensen suggested that the decision should be left up to the citizens of Fort St. John. Council passed a motion on Monday that will put the decision into referendum in the next civic election.
Davies says in the meantime, residents should become informed on the issue. He recommends using online search tools to become acquainted with both sides of the debate.
Evans says he utilized online sites to find information on adverse affects of fluoride in the water supply.
Council has heard both position of the issue, ranging from concerned citizens to Northern Health officials.
So, fluoride will continue to be in the water supply until the next civic election, slated for 2011. City Manager Dianne Hunter says the cost of holding the referendum will be minimal, somewhere in the range of three to five thousand dollars.

When elections are held, fluoridation promoters lose about 80% of the time. It is a hoax on the public and people have wised up. They have learned to follow the money!
Those promoting fluoridation simply refuse to read the current research showing it is ineffective and dangerous to health. Go to (www.fluoridealert.org) and read several scientific articles.
Read the letter from Dr. Hardy Limeback ( DDS, PhD Biochemistry) --- Head, Preventive Dentistry, University of Toronto entitled "Why I am now officially opposed to adding fluoride to drinking water"
He was the principal research advisor to the Canadian Dental Asociation for over 10 years in promoting fluoridation. His letter is an apology to other dentists and the public.
Over 140 Research studies listed, including:
Increased risk of bone cancer -- 13 studies
Lead, arsenic, radium contaminants causing toxic water -- 10 studies
Link with fluoride and other cancer -- 12
Fluoride causes birth defects -- 5
Fluoride affects the immune systems -- 12
Fluoride is neurotoxic (brain, nerves, lowering IQ) -- 11
Also see the petition signed by over 2600 professionals opposing fluoridation.


  • Argh, how can people be so ignorant and simply not care about the fact that fluoridation is harming every one of them. They don't see real proof so they assume it doesn't really matter what's in their water...just sad. Once they see the risks and dangers later on they'll understand.

    Take care, Jay
