“The district of Muskoka, Ontario is home to about 60,000 and is a hot spot for Toronto resident cottages. On Monday October 21st, the district voted during a council meeting to end the practice of water fluoridation. With a vote of 10-9 in favor of ending the practice. Muskoka joined a long list of cities ending the detrimental practice of water fluoridation. It is projected that the city will save about $50,000 per year by ending water fluoridation. 
Growing awareness about the dangers of water fluoridation lends a hand to the success we continue to see all over the world with regards to fluoride being removed from the water supplies. Israel, Australia, Canada and the U.S. all feature a number of cities who recently joined, virtually the rest of the world, in removing fluoride from public water. Continue reading

“Windsor on Monday joined the growing number of municipalities which have voted to end the decades-old practice of adding fluoride to the water supply in the fight against tooth decay.
“A lot has changed in the last 60 years … fluoride is not the be-all and end-all to prevent tooth decay,” said Mayor Eddie Francis, who voted with the majority. Continue reading

“It is virtually indisputable that fluoride reduces, drastically reduces, the incidents of tooth decay in the general population,” Dr. Paul Dunn said. Continue reading

It suggests any savings be directed to oral health and nutritional education for five years. Continue reading
From Sakerfa on Dprogram.net:
(Youtube) – It is now known – thanks to the meticulous research of Dr. Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey in England – that the pineal gland is the primary target of fluoride accumulation within the body.
Also, Fluoride is known to have tremendous effects on bone cancer, joint problems, bone weakness, lower estrogen & testosterone as well as Dental Fluorosis. Sodium Fluoride is the most toxic ionic molecule outside of potassium dichromate. Continue reading

Just what we need?
(NaturalNews) Back in October, the Pinellas County, Fla., Commission voted 4 – 3 to stop adding artificial fluoride chemicals to the county’s municipal water supply, which serves roughly 700,000 residents (http://www.naturalnews.com/033801_f…). But now local health officials are suggesting that the county purchase a mobile fluoride van as an alternative, which would drive around town and administer fluoride and other conventional dental services directly to children.
Believe it or not, theSt. Petersburg Timesreports that the Pinellas County Commission will soon vote on whether or not to purchase this mobile fluoride van for $532,339 in taxpayer funds, which is more than twice the $205,000 a year the county has been spending to purchase fluoride chemicals for the water supply. The Commission had asked the county’s Health and Human Services department to come up with a new way to use the $205,000 for other dental purposes, and the mobile fluoride van was their proposal.

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
Citizens for Safe Drinking Water: Largest Water Wholesaler in Southern California Sued for Illegal Use of an Unapproved Drug to Fulfill Fluoridation Program

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Alleging willful misrepresentation and deceptive business practices by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, attorneys for citizen/consumers from San Diego, Los Angeles and Ventura Counties filed a lawsuit in the public interest of millions of consumers in Southern California, citing that MWD of SoCal has made claims of safely and effectively treating and preventing dental disease in recipient consumers, while selecting and delivering a hydrofluosilicic acid drug through their water system that has never been approved for safety and effectiveness, nor in the expected dosages delivered by MWD through retail water districts, either topically, systemically through ingestion, or trans-dermal exposures through baths and showers.

From Carl Herman, at the Examiner.com:
“The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system,” concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).
The research team reports, “It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride.” (1)
“Fluoride can be toxic by ingesting one part per million (ppm), and the effects are not immediate, as they can take 20 years or more to become evident,” they write. Continue reading
CBC news reports:
“Calgary city council has voted 10-3 to remove fluoride from the city’s drinking water.
Two members of council, Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Brian Pincott, were out of town during Tuesday’s vote.
Earlier in the day, city council considered and rejected by a vote of 8-5 putting the fluoride issue to a plebiscite in the 2013 municipal election.
Council also rejected referring the matter to an expert panel.
The issue has proved a lightning rod for Calgarians, and past plebiscites have revealed public opinion is almost evenly split on the matter. Continue reading
Once again, we present an excerpt from Augie’s “Journal of Natural Food and Healing” blog, on the very important topic of Fluoride and children:
In Part 1, Dr. Sylvia Onusic provided information on the school fluoride mouth rinse programs along with much data and references on oral hygiene products and other sources of fluoride poisoning. Part 2 covers a dangerous tooth sealant program for schoolchildren as well as some other details that should be brought forth.
Once again we are most pleased to have David Michael as a guest writer on the topic of fluoride overdose. David Michael has spent four decades in the environmental profession in Michael’s experience with hazardous compounds in water, waste and air include monitoring and control and treatment. He has worked for EPA as a regulator and has worked for major oil and tire companies, and many organizations such as Toyota, USPS, USAF as a consultant, publisher and educator. David is a chemical engineer with an environmental specialty and is an advocate for natural food and health freedom.–Augie Continue reading
