Well, apparently a very slight majority of the people of Waterloo voted to have fluoridation stopped. That's fine, if that's what they want.
TextOn April 16, Martin Mittelstaedt of the Globe and Mail reported that, “When it comes to fluoridating drinking water, Ontario and Quebec couldn’t be further apart. Ontario has the country’s highest rate of adding the tooth-enamel-strengthening chemical into municipal supplies, while Quebec has one of the lowest, with practically no one drinking fluoridated water.” “More than three-quarters of Ontario residents live in areas where municipal water supplies contain the chemical. In Quebec, 94 per cent have water free of the additive, according to figures published by Health Canada in 2007. Since then, Quebec City has voted to stop fluoridating, indicating that the difference between the two provinces is currently even more pronounced.” “But surprisingly, the two provinces have very little difference in tooth-decay rates, a finding that is likely to intensify the ongoing controversy over the practice of adding fluoride to water as a public health measure.” HEALTH CONCERNS Hardy Limeback, the head of the preventive dentistry program at the University of Toronto, says, “Fluoridation is no longer effective (and adding the chemical to water is) more harmful than beneficial.” “A number of medical journal studies have linked exposure to altered thyroid function, and to reduced IQ levels in children, although the intellectual impairments were found at levels of the chemical in water well above those used for municipal supplies. The most worrisome study, by Harvard researchers, appeared in 2006 in the journal Cancer Causes and Control and found that boys aged 7 exposed to high levels of fluoridated water were about four times more likely to develop childhood osteosarcoma. It’s a rare bone cancer that felled Canadian icon Terry Fox and almost always leads to amputations.”
So please explain to me why they prescribe Prozac ,which the main ingredient in sodium fluoride, to a patient who has a history of thyroid problems when it is a known fact that fluoride disrupts the Thyroid gland.
Quebeckers have more cavities than people in Ontario, but the difference is slight. Among children 6 to 19, considered the most decay-prone part of the population, the rate in Ontario was lower by less than half a cavity per child.
In the 6-11 age group, Ontario kids have 3.5 per cent fewer cavities than those in Quebec: 1.7 cavities compared to 1.76 in Quebec.
In the 12-19 age group, Ontario youths have 15.8 per cent fewer cavities than those in Quebec: 2.35 cavities compared to 2.79.
Comparisons of communities where water is fluoridated and communities where water remains unfluoridated show a reduced prevalence of dental caries in the range of 18-40 % when fluoridation is used (4). A recent study established the rate of caries reduction at 25 % (23). It is postulated that this estimate is more conservative than those reported in the past because the general population now enjoys the benefits of fluoride from other sources,
such as fluoride-enriched toothpaste and vitamin supplements.
In a letter to the editor of the journal Cancer Causes Control,13 Chester
Douglass, principal investigator of the Harvard study, advises readers to be
cautious when interpreting the findings, noting the following reasons:
• The preliminary findings from the overall analysis of the cases identified between 1993 and 2000 (second set of cases) do not show an association
between osteosarcoma and fluoride in drinking water.

This is incorrect. Distilled water is the best in the world to drink; it is completely pure H2O, with no contaminants making it possible to detox your body from the current contaminants. Don't give me that: "You lose minerals and nutrients!" bit. It should be noted that the 'minerals and nutrients' in water are inorganic and your body can not even use them.

Boron has an extremely high PH level of 9-10. It has been shown to be effective in cases of cancer; due to the fact that cancer can only exist in an acidic body. It can not live in a host or body that has a PH level higher than 7. I would say that distilled would be better than spring due to chemtrails adding aluminum which binds to fluoride and allows it to make it's way past the blood brain barrier and cause Alzheimers.
A simple google search of fluoxetine and sodium fluoride as keywords would prove you wrong.
Are they mind readers? But fine, blame the doctor who prescribed it if you want.
Also how could they not know that if it's their job to know?
35,378 people reported to have side effects when taking Prozac. Among them, 1 people (0.00%) has Thyroid Problems.
I see, so as long as I agree with you it's ok. If I disagree it's an "assault".
Just remember you have every right to join a disussion but do not have the right to assault the intellectual property of people - who are attempting to engage in healthy discussion and explore their society within their learning styles.

That would work.
Your welcome. I always try to provide my sources.
Thanks for the information posted above from your link you so kindly provided......
Enough said I think.
The prevented fraction for water fluoridation was 27% (95%CI: 19%–34%). These findings suggest that fluoride prevents caries among adults of all ages.
SCHER also agrees that a biological plausibility for the link between fluoridated water and IQ has not been established.

Fluoride enhances the effect of aluminium chloride on interconnections between aggregates of hippocampal neurons.
van der Voet GB, Schijns O, de Wolff FA.
Toxicology Laboratory Leiden University Medical Center Leiden, The Netherlands.
The role of fluoride in aluminium neurotoxicity was studied using an in vitro system of cultured hippocampal neurons from foetal rats. Sodium fluoride (50 microM) and aluminium chloride (12.5 microM) were administered alone or in a specific combination (50 + 12.5 microM) in a 14-day culture in a chemically defined medium before staining of neurofilaments. Neuronal aggregates interconnected by neuritic fibers were detected light microscopically in control cultures. The aggregates and the fibers stained positive for neurofilament proteins. In cultures treated with aluminium chloride the development of the interconnecting fibers was affected, resulting in a fusion pattern of the aggregates. This phenomenon was enhanced when sodium fluoride was given together with aluminum chloride. It was concluded that aluminium interferes with the metabolism of the neuronal cytoskeleton and that this interference is potentiated by fluoride.

It was by reading the information presented that I learned boiling fluoridated water actual increases the potency of the fluoride.
Perhaps you should look into reverse osmosis. It won't remove everything (some fluoride, some barium some aluminum will remain), but close enough. If you want better you'll have to go distilled.
From the research I conducted - it is next to impossible to remove fluoride from water - by any method.
