From Douglas Main, in Newsweek:
“On Tuesday of this week (Aug. 26), Israel officially stopped adding fluoride to its water supplies. The decision has “been lauded by various rights groups, but criticized by many in the medical and dental communities as a serious mistake,” as the Times of Israel put it.
The tasteless, colorless chemical is put into water for the purpose of reducing cavities, but critics say that it amounts to mass medication, and forces people to consume the substance whether they want to or not….” Continue reading

TORONTO — So far 350 people have confirmed their attendance on the Facebook page and over 1,000 have signed the online petition.
Hydrofluorosilicic acid has been added to the community water supply in Toronto for 50 years. It is a toxic waste byproduct of phosphate fertilizer production that is commonly used for fluoridation in The United States and Canada. It has been shown to cause leaching of lead from pipes and is contaminated with arsenic, mercury and radionuclides. Continue reading
From “Matthews and Associates” law firm:
“With the “Safe Drinking Water Disclosure Act” – H.B. 72 – the state of Utah is holding the companies that “fluoridate” Utah’s drinking waters accountable for pouring huge amounts of other toxic chemicals in the water along with the fluoridation chemicals.
Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed a bill last week that requires chemical companies to fully disclose all the chemicals they are dumping into Utah’s water along with the toxic fluoride which has been represented for more than 60 years across the U.S. as a means of preventing dental caries.

From Augie, at the Journal of Natural Food and Health:
It is high time to hold municipal and state governments liable for the health damages caused by the unethical and illegal use of industrial fluoride wastes in water supplies as a potent drug. By the way, this is national fluoride awareness week, so I am pleased this important law suit was filed today. –Augie

An excerpt from the Natural News report by Ethan A. Huff:
“(NaturalNews) The Green Party of Canada recently passed a resolution within its ranks that seeks to end water fluoridation in Canada. The party plans to introduce and support legislation that will outlaw fluoridation in Canada at the federal level, effectively overriding any and all local mandates that say otherwise.
Much of North America’s water is fluoridated, meaning that water utilities add hexafluorosilicic acid, sodium silicofluoride or sodium fluoride to local water supplies. These toxic substances are said to prevent tooth decay, but many medical and dental professionals disagree, citing fluoride’s many harmful effects on the body and teeth. Continue reading
