Fluoride Free Canada's mission is to educate the public and decision-makers on the urgent need to eliminate artificial water fluoridation across Canada, on both ethical and safety grounds.
For Canada to be a country in which scientific integrity and sound medical ethics underpin every public health policy and one in which we can have confidence in public pronouncements from all health officials, especially community-based Medical Officers of Health. That has not been the case with water fluoridation.
Recent government-funded peer-reviewed science indicates that fluoride has the potential to damage the brains of our children.
When municipalities fluoridate our tap water, it denies Canadians the right to choose whether they wish to drink it, shower in it or cook with it. At Fluoride Free Canada we support all efforts across Canada to end this outdated practice. We will endeavour to help both municipalities and individuals by providing them with the best science that indicates that this practice is harmful to health, especially the dangers it poses to the brains of our children and the bones of the elderly. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.
LETTER TO GOVERNMENT BODIES
Even though fluoridation is a municipal responsibility, Fluoride Free Canada has written a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to inform him that water fluoridation has the potential to threaten the brains of our children. We believe he must act on their behalf. Feel free to modify/alter this letter, for presentation to your own Provincial and Municipal bodies.
We urge you to send out your own copy of this letter and get as many other people you know to do so as well. There is much information in this letter that the other political leaders and Canadian citizens do not know, so circulating this letter far and wide is a splendid educational tool for all Canadians. Help us move Prime Minister Trudeau and the Provincial and Territorial Premiers to protect Canadian childrens' developing brains from fluoridated tap water.
THE UNITED STATES IS GETTING CLOSE
Food and Water Watch, et al. is in the middle of proceedings against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). A Federal law Judge heard the case in June 2020 (via Zoom). In the case, testimony was provided by Philippe Grandjean, Howard Hu (co-author of the Bashash (2017, 2018) studies and Bruce Lanphear, co-author of the Green (2019) and Till (2020) studies. The judge appears to be very interested in the new science and has delayed his ruling until he has in his hands the final report of the U.S. National Toxicology Program’s (NTP) review on fluoride’s neurotoxicity (expected before the end of 2021) and the Benchmark Dose (BMD) analysis by Grandjean (et al) which was published in June of this year.
This could bode VERY WELL for Canadians if Food & Water Watch wins the case, as it would be hard for the Canadian government to ignore any changes implemented by the EPA in favour of defluoridation.
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) website has existed since the year 2000 and rather than duplicate the information that they have on Canadian activity, it is included here:
Paul Connett, PhD, is a retired professor of chemistry specializing in environmental chemistry and toxicology. He is the current director of the Fluoride Action Network, which he helped to found in 2000. He co-authored the book The Case Against Fluoride [Chelsea Green, 2010] with Dr. James Beck from Calgary and Dr. Spedding Micklem from Edinburgh, Scotland. He is featured in several of the videos below. He has been involved since 1996 and has helped many communities in Canada fight fluoridation. He has given presentations on the topic in many cities in Canada, including: Toronto, Ottawa, Oakville, Brantford, London, Mississauga, Peterborough, Dryden, Waterloo, Calgary, Montreal and Prince George.
