Your silence gives consent

Your silence gives consent. – Plato To me, this is quite an alarming image and I debated about sharing it. What are your thoughts? Let’s have some feedback on this. Here’s what William, the artist, said: “This was the original idea for me; a smiling CDC guy assisting a child with drinking fluoridated water, while the mother stands there, silently. “I messed with a few angles. Tried to come up with a face for the guy. Looked at references. I forget how Hitler came to be, but at first I was only thinking a subtle Hitler, without the stash. “My thing is ‘impactful’ or ‘make one ask questions…consider.’” Comments from others who have seen this image: “Punches you right in the gut.” “It’s right on the money.” “The main point is to get parents to think about what their kids are ingesting.” “As soon as people see Hitler, they write you off.” What are your thoughts – about the image, about fluoride being forced on us? Interesting Information Dr. Kathleen Thiessen Ph.D. senior member of the United States National Research Scientific Committee, which examined fluoride in drinking water in 2006, has published a new paper investigating the economic risks associated with water fluoridation. The report highlights the hidden costs associated with water fluoridation including the costs of treating dental fluorosis, of accidents and overfeeds, of occupational exposures to fluoride, of promoting community water fluoridation, and of avoiding fluoridated water. This is a must read for anyone interested in how taxpayers’ money is flushed down the drain with CWF. A critique of recent economic evaluations of community water fluoridation –...

Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed

Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. – Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 – 1900) The sign says, “New Science Condemns It,” but the reality is Old Science condemned it, too. The Old Science was just brushed under the rug by big industry, money and propaganda. Read Christopher Bryson’s book, The Fluoride Deception for a comprehensive history of fluoridation. In the past few days, two new studies have made headlines questioning the safety of fluoridation – fluoridation contributes to hypothyroidism and to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Water Fluoridation May Increase Risk of Underactive Thyroid Disorder BY DOUGLAS MAIN A large study that looked at data from nearly every general medical practice in England suggests that water fluoridation may increase the risk of developing hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. This condition, in which the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones, is associated with symptoms such as fatigue, obesity and depression. The study found that locations with fluoridated water supplies were more than 30 percent more likely to have high levels of hypothyroidism, compared to areas with low levels of the chemical in the water. Overall, there were 9 percent more cases of underactive thyroid in fluoridated places. Are fluoride levels in drinking water associated with hypothyroidism prevalence in England? A large observational study of GP practice data and fluoride levels in drinking water – S Peckham, D Lowery, S Spencer Findings We found that higher levels of fluoride in drinking water provide a useful contribution for predicting prevalence of hypothyroidism. We found that practices located in the West Midlands (a wholly fluoridated area) are nearly...

Follow the Money

Realize that agendas drive data, not the other way round. ― Joel Salatin, Folks, This Ain’t Normal: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World Did you catch what Joel Salatin said, “Agendas drive data…”? That’s why Fluoridation is Forced Medication. Big business is driving this agenda and people are being forced to comply. The following article on the blog, Fluoride Dangers, says it very clearly – Follow the Money. Fluoridation has nothing to do with dental health and everything to do with big business and money. Fluoridation: Follow the Money, by Carol S. Kopf, BS, MA Monday, January 13, 2014 Multi-billion dollar international conglomerates, which benefit from tooth decay and fluoride sales, pour money into organized dentistry, which is behind virtually every fluoridation initiative. Money makes dentistry politically powerful and enables them to get laws passed to benefit dentists’ bottom line. The American Dental Association (ADA), many of its over 250 constituent state and city associations are benefactors of corporate dollars along with other fluoridation-promoting dental groups, schools and organizations. Dentists, inside and outside of government and industry, seem to have vast amounts of money and influence to promote fluoridation. Where does it come from… Who’s in Charge? No government agency has direct oversight of fluoridation. The CDC is not responsible for fluoridation safety. The FDA regulates fluoride as a drug for topical application and considers ingested fluoride such as fluoride supplements, an unapproved drug. The EPA regulates fluoride in water supplies as a contaminant. Organized dentistry, fuelled by corporate cash, protects fluoride’s image and promotes fluoridation but not the American public….

Information Request Shows Health Canada Has No Safety Studies On Chemical Used As Fluoride

Water is the driving force of all nature. – Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) And look what’s being done to our water! With No Safety Studies! Information Request Shows Health Canada Has No Safety Studies On Chemical Used As Fluoride It was April 2012, Hamilton city council was discussing water fluoridation and we decided to present city council with a petition calling to end the practice. A whole host of people including toxicologists, ecologists, activists, and many more came up one after another. To present why they felt fluoridation needed to end in the city. The petition has over 1200 signatures, enough to require the city to take action under provincial law. Unfortunately the term action is not clearly defined. The council decided to ask Health Canada for any safety information regarding the chemical being used to fluoridate (hydrofluorosilicic acid). It is now only months away from being three years later and Health Canada has not even responded to the request, never mind answer it. Thankfully a person in Toronto filed a FOIA request asking for any toxicological studies on hydrofluorosilicic acid. Below is a picture of the response that was received. Can you believe that artificial water fluoridation is merely “about the cavities”? Of course not! At a public meeting in Waterloo, ON in October, 2010, Health Canada’s Chief Dental Officer, Dr. Peter Cooney, had to concede that Canada’s fluoridation practice results in less than half a cavity savings per person over a lifetime. Listen to the audio clip on this page: ODA’s Fluoridation Night in Waterloo, Ontario — where Health Canada concedes fluoridation results in less...

What’s so hard to understand?

The time is always right to do what is right. – Martin Luther King, JR. (1929 – 1968) What’s so hard to understand that hydrofluorosilicic acid should not be added to our drinking water? Pro-fluoride people keep saying it’s for the “poor kids” who can’t afford proper dental care. Okay, so, let’s not argue about the “fluoride” that’s supposed to prevent cavities. What about the lead and arsenic that comes along with the hydrofluorosilicic acid, which isn’t a natural fluoride? What about all the scientific studies that have proven lead at any level damages children’s health? What about the arsenic that is pure poison? There are lots of studies proving the hazards of these chemicals, but NO studies proving the safety of silicofluorides. How can fluoride proponents justify adding lead and arsenic to our children’s drinking water? Where’s their science to say that’s safe? Why is our water still fluoridated? Simple. People don’t care! Is it so much that more people need to be educated or informed, or is it that people need to do something about what they already know before it kills them? This brings us to the previous FFL Newsletter, January 9, 2015. I had received this letter from a Lethbridge business person: Hello Marilyn, This news letter is a good idea to keep in touch with your members. Is there any effort to make the circulation bigger? I suggest that your group should get out and touch general public through protest or procession on the streets. Lethbridge public is not well informed, I believe. Many families don’t read news papers or books. That is where...
