City Goes Fluoride-Free for Christmas

Fluoride-Free

Overturning a 60-Year Public Health Hazard Law

As of December 31, the City of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada will be fluoride-free for the first time since October 4, 1954 – finally escaping from municipal water fluoridation toxicity in 60 years.

A vote to end fluoridation took place in November of this year, and it was unanimously accepted by the new Mayor and Council, expressing the wishes of Prince George residents.

The unanimous decision to end fluoridation comes with the dismantling and removal of all fluoridation equipment and hazardous waste storage tanks. This also means that as a province, British Columbia is now close to 98% FLUORIDE FREE – by choice.

Just to clarify, and to dispel the propaganda which states that fluoride is safe – calcium fluoride appears naturally in underground water sources and even seawater. Enough of it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone and dental matter. But it is not nearly as toxic, nor does it negatively affect so many other health issues as sodium fluoride, which is added to many water supplies.

Sodium Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries.

This is why so many communities who look into water fluoridation ultimately end up discontinuing the practice. Actually, Most developed nations in the world have rejected fluoridation, including 97% of western Europe. This, while the United States fluoridates more than 70% of its water supplies. According to the British Fluoridation Society, there are more people drinking artificially fluoridated water in the United States than all other countries combined. But as mentioned fluoridation is ending in more US communities every day.

Fluoride Could Be Causing Your Heartburn

By Ben Fuchs | Pharmacist Ben

By now, most people reading these posts are aware that adding fluoride to drinking water is not such a great idea. Aside from the dubious benefits to teeth, fluoride is a known toxin. According to the Fluoride Action Network, ingestion of as little as 1 per cent of a tube of toothpaste can produce acute fluoride toxicity in a young child.

Every year, U.S. poison control centers receive thousands of reports related to excessive ingestion of fluoride dental products, which include toothpastes, mouth rinses and supplements.

Fluoride Could Be Causing Your HeartburnThe story of the addition of fluoride to municipal drinking water is not pretty, and now it turns out that many symptoms of indigestion and excess stomach acid may be related to fluoride toxicity. Fluoride is turned into hydrofluoric acid by digestive juices and this can have a corrosive effect on the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, scientists at The All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi have published research in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology that fluoride itself can create changes in digestive tract cells. Substances that create structural changes in biological cell systems are clearly problematic and to be avoided.

If you’re one of the unlucky folks living a municipality that is fluoridating their water (according to a 2002 study cited on the US Center for Disease Control website, that includes 67% of the United States population), it may be a good idea to use a fluoride filtration system. The two most commonly used are activated alumina and the SIR-900 which is a synthetic aluminum oxide. Cheap charcoal filters do not filter out fluoride, but reverse osmosis water and distilled water are typically free of the troublesome chemical compound. And, if you have problems with indigestion or unexplained production of excess stomach acid, drinking fluoride-free water may be especially beneficial.
