Ban Artificial Water Fluoridation (Donations go to Change.org NOT to the petitioner)

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


We want a ban on artificial fluoridation products in public drinking water!
Keep artificial water fluoridation chemicals out of City of Calgary drinking water.
Let Calgary Officials know we will not stand for the poisoning of the water with a toxic waste product in Calgary, or elsewhere!

SUMMARY OF CURRENT EVENTS
Calgary, Alberta, Canada officials intend to artificially fluoridate the city’s water again unless we take action!
Members The City of Calgary Council passed a Notice of Motion on February 25, 2019 to engage the University of Calgary’s O’Brien Institute for Public Health (OIPH) to conduct an assessment of evidence with regards of Fluoridation and present their findings to council not LATER THAN JUNE. The OIPH is clearly pro fluoridating Calgary’s water and that will be their recommendation to council; what will follow is a Motion to approve it.

Tell the City of Calgary Council you disagree no matter where in the world you live!
IMPORTANT:
If Calgary fluoridates, it will affect future generations and set a dangerous precedent for others cities for the rest of Canada would not be far behind; also it would set a poor example internationally. All this potential harm would take a lot of effort to undo!!!

SOME POINTS ABOUT ARTIFICIAL WATER FLUORIDATION

·         Artificial water fluoridation, otherwise known as the addition of toxic industrial scrubber waste product from Florida and China to our public water, is a failing public health practice. Fluoride and water fluoridation are not safe, effective, or ethical.

·         Fluoride is not needed for a single body function.

·         There is no such thing as a fluoride deficiency.

·         The latest studies showing neurotoxicity are the most alarming as the damage to our kids is essentially irreversible.

·         Artificial water fluoridation is a form of mass medicating without informed consent. There is no personal freedom of choice. UNESCO: “In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.”

·         Governments that institute artificial water fluoridation perform no monitoring or follow up ever on the population thus are unaware of the negative impacts.

·         There is no control of dose or dosage for there is no control of the water people drink or adsorb transdermal.

·         Only 5% of the world still participates in this antiquated practice.

·         The fluoride ion is very small and very difficult to remove from water. It requires expensive reverse osmosis or distillation.

·         99% of water is not consumed but is used to flush toilets, water lawns, etc.  and goes into our environment unchecked. The Canadian Environmental Protection Act classifies fluoridation products as persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic to the environment and nearly all of the water treated with fluoridation products ends up back in the environment with less than 1% used for drinking.

·         Natural calcium fluoride in our rocks and rivers is very tightly bound and behaves very differently in our bodies than the industrial waste hydrofluosilicic acid which is the form used by cities adding fluoride to water.

·         Voting whether or not to medicate other people by plebiscite is highly unethical.

·         In Canada 98% of BC and Quebec are not fluoridated. BC boasts of having some of the best oral health in Canada.

·         97% of Europe is not fluoridated-much more progressive than us in many ways.

·         Fluoride, for those who think it is a useful intervention, is available easily and cheaply with toothpaste, from an MD or pharmacist, from dentist as sealants, gels and rinses, and from a variety of bottled drinks, teas and processed foods.

·         The pro fluoridationists seem to believe that repeating the words “safe and effective” many times over will actually make it so.

·         There are now well over 2,000 studies showing harm and damage to virtually all organs and body systems.

·         Around 15 Nobel Laureates in Medicine have made strong statements about fluoridation, some calling it the biggest scam ever propagated against humanity.

·         Fluoride breaches and crosses the placental and blood brain barriers, designed to protect us against such toxins.  Some research highlights how fluoride easily displaces iodine in the body, iodine being indispensable to human health.

·         The most harmed by side effects are the fetus, babies, children, the elderly, the chronically ill, and people of colour.

·         People that want or need to avoid swallowing fluoride (to avoid dental fluorosis, those who suffer kidney or thyroid impairment, mixing baby formula etc.) deserve equitable access to safe drinking water and should not be burdened with finding and paying for an alternative source of water.
