Background (Preamble):
If you still believe the myth that fluoride is good for your children’s (and your)
teeth, think again. There are a vast number of scientific research studies
confirming the opposite – that fluoride is a toxin that is extremely detrimental to
your body, your brain, and even to your teeth.

One of the most active research areas today is fluoride’s ability to damage your
brain. Recent human studies from China have confirmed the results of previous
animal studies; that elevated fluoride exposure leads to reduced I.Q. and an
increase in behavioral issues in children (ADD, ADHD, depression and learning
disabilities of all kinds).

Fluoride exposure has been linked to many health problems, including hip
fractures, neurological damage, ADD/ADHD, lead poisoning, Alzheimer's
Disease, birth defects, skeletal fluorosis, dental fluorosis, early onset of puberty,
immune system suppression, thyroid dysfunction (weight gain!), bone cancer and
other rare forms of cancer.

As award-winning journalist, Christopher Bryson details in his book, The Fluoride
Deception, fluoridating water began in the mid 1940’s as a solution to fluoride
pollution, generated by the Atomic Bomb Program, and the aluminum industry.

Starting it off with the discovery, that a natural form of fluoride (fluorite a natural
form of calcium fluoride) seemed to strengthen teeth, industry lobbyists were able
to convince government that drinking toxic chemical fluoride compounds – the
waste materials from fluoride-polluting industries – would be good for us. We now
understand it changes the main mineral in tooth enamel, hydroxyapatite, into a
more-decay resistant material called fluorapatite, New research has found that
the fluorapatite layer formed in this way is only 6 nanometers thick -- meaning it
would take almost 10,000 such layers to span the width of a human hair.
According to Science Daily, "The scientists question whether a layer so thin,
which is quickly worn away by ordinary chewing, really can shield teeth from

After analyzing hundreds of fluoride studies, researchers found that fluoride:
Alters endocrine function, especially in the thyroid,Causes dental fluorosis in
young children,May lower IQ,May increase the risk of bone fractures,Because
scientific evidence suggests that water fluoridation is ineffective and dangerous
to health, over 1,200 professional are now urging Congress to stop water
fluoridation. Source Reuters January 2, 2008.

Instead of risking increasing lawsuits from farmers whose crops and cattle were
dying downwind, or having to spend enormous amounts of money to dispose of
these chemicals safely, they were now able to SELL their waste material as a
“health” product!

In response to questions from a Congressional subcommittee in 1999-2000 it
was noted that the industrial grade waste products used to fluoridate over 90% of
America's drinking water supplies (fluorosilicate compounds) have never been
subjected to toxicological testing nor received FDA approval for human ingestion.

The Fluoride in Saskatoon's water is not approved by the FDA (The Federal Drug
Administration of the US.) We would like to have the choice of whether or not our
children are essentially forced to consume this drug via our tapwater.

Consider that basic sodium fluoride, (which is a far simpler toxin than the fluoride
compounds used for most water fluoridation) is also used for:

* Rat and cockroach poisons * Anesthetics * Hypnotics* Military nerve gas (sarin)
And we drink this??

Not only is fluoride extremely dangerous as it accumulates in our bones over
time it is extremely hard to remove and basic home filtration systems will not get
it out. Reverse osmosis or drink a neural toxin! We are being medicated without
our consent. 8 Canadian cities have already been successful at getting the
fluoridation of there municipal water stopped- let us be next!
