Water Fluoridation has been a center piece in controversy for more than 50 years. Regardless of the level of controversy fluoridation is underway in
most major North American cities.
Dr. Robert Caxton, Ph.D. former US EPA scientist, speaking on CBC TVs Marketplace in 1992, called fluoridation, "the greatest case of scientific
fraud of this century, if not of all time."
It's important to note that regardless of debate, there has never been a study done which proves sodium fluoride protects the teeth's enamel which
is the reasoning we are told behind our fluoride ingestion.
"Here in Toronto we've been fluoridating for 36 years (46 now). Yet Vancouver - which has never fluoridated - has a cavity rate lower than
Toronto's." --Dr. Hardy Limeback, Ph.D., in Biochemistry, D.D.S., head of the Department of Preventive Dentistry for the University of Toronto, and
president of the Canadian Association for Dental Research.
The substance in question is a major piece to many types of industry since the 50's, but unfortunately sodium fluoride is the toxic by-product piece
of the equation. A quick Internet search will show you an image from a 1950 Alcoa aluminum advertisement saying, "Fluoridate your water with
confidence, use high purity Alcoa sodium fluoride".
Industry was required to pay large disposal fees to rid themselves of this harmful waste until we were told it was beneficial to teeth. At this point
we began to pay them for it. Please continue to research for yourselves if you haven't already. Consider keeping your family away from fluoridated
water ingestion, municipal or bottled, and contacting your local representatives with your concerns.
Steam distillation will remove fluoride from contaminated water, although expensive.
