Fluoridation Toxicity ~ Stop the deceit

MAIN IMAGEMERCOLA “Fluoride robs you of your health while thought to be helpful.”, quote from Dr. Mercola’s web site with reference to the following article  ‘Water Fluoridation: The “Healthy” Practice That Has    Deceived the World’ by Paul Connett, PhD, Director of the V, as it appears on mercola.com, Dec. 09, 2014.

Story at-a-glance
Since 2010, over 165 communities worldwide have either ended  fluoridation or rejected new proposals.
Pro-fluoridation “authorities” have no science to back their      exaggerated claims of benefits or their denials of potential dangers.
 OSTEOSARCOMATwo important Harvard studies have linked fluoride to   osteosarcoma and reductions in IQ.

 

As this is an extensive article I will be using excerpts only and will provide a link to the full article at the end.
…Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA) — continue the outdated and discredited practice of water fluoridation, but in each of these citadels, more and more communities are finding out the truth…Since 2010, over 165 communities worldwide have either ended fluoridation or rejected new proposals (e.g. Portland, Oregon). In 2012, Queensland lifted mandatory fluoridation. In August 2014, Israel banned fluoridation completely.In Sept 2014, a major law firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of Peel (Ontario) citizens claiming that fluoridation is illegal under a Supreme Court ruling from the 1950s, and on Oct 7, 2014 Dublin City Council joined many other Irish councils calling on the Irish government to end mandatory fluoridation…They continue to wheel out “prestigious authorities” to endorse the practice, even while it is becoming more and more obvious – and more and more embarrassing – that these “authorities” have no science to back their exaggerated claims of benefits or their denials of potential dangers…Indeed, these endorsements are sounding more and more like the empty phrases of the “Hollow Men” struggling in a “dry cellar” in T.S. Elliot’s famous poem of the same name.

FLIERTHE AMERICAN HOLLOW MEN ~
So who are these hollow men and why are they wrong and horribly misleading?…In the US, Dr. Jeffrey S. Flier, Dean of DONOFFHarvard Medical School and Dr. Bruce Donoff, Dean of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. On March 22, 2014, these Harvard deans, wrote the following letter to avid fluoridation propagandist Dr. Myron Allukian (Massachusetts), which has since been given wide distribution by fluoridation promoters.  Allukian almost certainly ALLUKIANsought this letter in order to quell concerns generated by two important Harvard studies: a) the osteosarcoma study by Bassin et al., 2006 and b) the meta-analysis of 27 IQ studies by Choi et al., 2012.
“Dear Dr. Allukian:
As Deans of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, we continue to support community water fluoridation as an effective and safe public health measure for people of all ages…
RESPONSE: Like anyone else, these Deans are entitled to their opinion but neither has published any study related in any way to the work of Bassin et al. (2006) or Choi et al. (2012), nor for that matter on any health issue relating to fluoridation.
So here, we see a fairly naked attempt by Allukian to trump serious scientific studies simply using opinions and endorsements rather than valid scientific evidence.

The following youtube video, “10 Facts About Fluoride”, published Apr 8, 2013  will probably shock you to hear the facts – not rumours, suppositions or theories – nothing but the facts!  

 

Attorney Michael Connett summarizes 10 basic facts about fluoride that should be considered in any discussion about whether to fluoridate water.

THE ‘HOLLOW MEN’ OF NEW ZEALAND” ~
GLUCKMAN In NZ, Sir Peter Gluckman, chief scientific advisor to the Prime Minster of New Zealand and Sir David SkeggSKEGG (President of the Royal Society of New Zealand). In August 2014, in response to a number of local communities voting out water fluoridation in NZ, Gluckman and Skegg published a review titled the “Health Effects of Water Fluoridation: a Review of the Scientific Evidence.” A press report can be viewed on FLUORIDE ACTION NETWORKFluorideAlert.org’s website.1  As far as the science is concerned, this review is inaccurate, selective, and superficial. However, because of the prestige of the authors and the positions they hold, this is likely to be very influential with the NZ media, which are equally inaccurate, selective, and superficial on this issue….
RESPONSE:  It should be incredibly embarrassing for both the NZ Prime Minister and the Royal Society of New Zealand to have their names associated with such an inaccurate and biased summary of the literature on fluoride’s impact on children’s intellectual development.

THE ‘HOLLOW MEN’ OF IRELAND ~

JUNE NUNN   KINIRONS CROP   WALSH RIGHT TO CROP   GANNON
In Ireland, Prof June Nunn, Dean, School of Dental Science, Trinity College Dublin; Prof Martin Kinirons, Dean, School of Dental Science, Cork University Dental School and Hospital; Dr. John Walsh, Dean, Faculty of Dentistry, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland; and Dr. Peter Gannon, President, Irish Dental Association. In a letter to the Irish Times (Oct 6, 2014), probably anticipating the vote by Dublin City Council calling on the Irish government to end fluoridation (Oct 7, 2014), these dentists wrote:

“Sir, – Ireland has a considerable history of water fluoridation. It is 50 years since fluoridation of the water supplies began in this country. Time for the considerable advantages in terms of improvements in oral health to be demonstrated and, in parallel, time during which there has been no documented medical side-effects of water fluoridation…

RESPONSE:  

    1. These authors very deceptively claim that in 50 years since fluoridation began in Ireland, “there has been no documented medical side-effects of water fluoridation,” without pointing out that in these 50 years there have been no health studies conducted in Ireland! The absence of study is not the same as the absence of harm.
    2. They compound this false impression when they say that “No other health-promoting measure has been exposed to such scrutiny” and again when they claim that the measure is without side effects “over decades of vigilance.”
    3. Their claims about Gluckman and Skegg’s NZ review (discussed above) and the ADA endorsement in the following excerpt is both self-serving and somewhat incestuous since it is one group of fluoridation promoters citing the “opinion” of other fluoridation promoters:

ROYAL SOCIETY“We note that the most recently published expert peer-reviewed analysis by the Royal Society of New Zealand finds ‘there are no adverse effects of any significance arising from fluoridation at the levels used in New Zealand’ (ie levels higher than in Ireland). ‘In particular, no effects on brain development, cancer risk or metabolic risk have been substantiated.’ The American Dental Association ‘unreservedly endorses the fluoridation of community water supplies as safe, effective and necessary in preventing tooth decay.’”

In Conclusion…

Many members of the public and the media will probably have to wait until a lawsuit before these “Hollow Men” are exposed. When they have to testify on what they actually know – based on the primary scientific literature – rather on what they believe, it should become clear to all and sundry that their authority on this matter is very hollow indeed.
FLUORIDE AWARENESS WEEKThis week we launch Fluoride Awareness Week. We set aside an entire week dedicated to ending the practice of fluoridation.

There’s no doubt about it: fluoride should not be ingested.

EPAEven scientists from the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have NEUROTOXICITYclassified fluoride as a “chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.” Furthermore, according to the Centers for DiseaseCDC Control and Prevention (CDC), 41 percent of American adolescents now have dental fluorosis—unattractive discoloration and mottling FLUORISIS OF TEETHof the teeth that indicate overexposure to fluoride.

LOWERS IQClearly, children are being overexposed, and their health and development put in jeopardy. Why?

The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place. Fortunately, the Fluoride Action Network has a game plan to END water fluoridation worldwide. Clean pure water is a prerequisite to optimal health. Industrial chemicals, drugs, and other toxic additives really have no place in our water supplies. So, please, protect your drinking water and support the fluoride-free movement by making a tax-deductible donation to the Fluoride Action Network today.

mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/12/09/fluoridation-hollow-men.aspx
The ultimate solution is to petition local government – urging the removal of fluoride altogether from the water supply. However, until this happens, each household is responsible for their own water purification and safety. This requires a water filtration system that specifically targets fluoride, such as reverse osmosis (see our video below). 

Here is Martin’s YouTube video explaining the benefits of our Rainsoft Reverse Osmosis drinking water system.

Rainsoft Reverse Osmosis water treatment systems not only remove all the toxic fluoride present in your water, but also 99% of the dangerous chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

INGENIUS! ~ CREATE DRINKING WATER FROM BILLBOARD!

A billboard in Peru
creates clean drinking water
from the air!!!
No way! ~ YES way!!!
PERU BILLBOARD WATER

What remarkable ingeniuty!!!

UTEC, the university of engineering and technology in Lima, Peru in collaburation with Mayo DraftDCB has developed the world’s first billboard that can produce potable water from the air as a promotional admissions campaign. In this region rainfall is scarce year-round, but atmospheric humidity reaches almost 98% – the project provides residents with up-to 96 liters clean drinking water in reserve tanks situated in taps at the foot of the sign, instead of having them deal with polluted wells.

Published on Feb 19, 2013 ~ The first billboard that produces potable water from the air.  Mayo DraftFCB for The University of Engineering and Technology

Interestingly, the project wasn’t so much driven by Lima’s need for water as UTEC’s need for more engineering students. Their motto is “We will continue changing the world through engineering.” And if this is what such students could get working on, we’re all for it.

BILLBOARD WATER PERU7croppedThe billboard contains five generators that churn out purified water through a reverse osmosis system. The system sends water to a tank that can store up to 100 liters per day. As you can see in the video above, people are actually using the billboard to get fresh water. In three months of operation, the billboard has produced thousands of liters.

Fortunately, the Peruvian government isn’t counting on UTEC and Mayo DraftCFB. They’ve recently announced a $3.3 billion-dollar upgrade they plan on making to their water and sewage infrastructure to provide better drinking water to their citizens.

WHY ARE YOU STILL DRINKING TAP WATER???

These days we come across more reports and articles that add to our already full arsenal of information about the dangers lurking in our municipal tap water~ for example pharmaceuticals and dangerous chemicals that are causing many health problems. Unfortunately the water treatment systems in place that are servicing city drinking water systems do not have the capability of removing these dangerous substances.

More and more people are asking the same question these days, “What is in our tap water – we have to know?”  The question is understandable if we think about organic food becoming more popular because people know that pesticides are not used.  The more important question here is, “Then why are we not concerned about our drinking water?”

Water testing across the U.S. has found traces of antibiotics, antidepressants, blood pressure and birth control medications in our drinking water. Many water filtration plants don’t have the technology to remove these pharmaceuticals and contaminants from our drinking water.

Dr. Oz in his television presentation, “Don’t Drink The Water” points out that, “Our municipalities add chlorine, chloramines, fluoride and all sorts of other chemicals to adjust flavor, kill bacteria and cover odors. Each of these toxic materials have some pretty nasty side effects. Then there are the increasing levels of pesticides and toxic metals leaching into the water from farming and manufacturing each year.”

Here’s a link to Daily Mail online in the UK and I encourage you to read the article, “Poison in the kitchen…How tap water could damage your brain, blind or even kill you”, by Dr. Robert Morris, 30 April, 2008 ~

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-563123/Poison-kitchen–How-tap-water-damage-brain-blind-kill-you.html#ixzz247VYs5yV

Now we should be more concerned than ever when we learn that refrigerator manufactures are adding filters to their models with drinking water to remove these dangerous chemicals.  We must note however that the filters they use are NOT capable of removing uranium, lead, mercury, pesticides, herbicides and pharmaceuticals from the water.  In order to ensure removal of all contaminants, a system using carbon and sediment filters plus a membrane is necessary ~ such as a Reverse Osmosis system. 

GE has this to say about their product filtration system:  “The filter removes 98 percent of five trace pharmaceuticals, including ibuprofen (painkiller), atenolol (blood pressure medication), fluoxetine (antidepressant), progesterone (steroid hormone replacement), and trimethoprim (antibiotic) from water and ice.”

I’m certain that in different areas of the country more contaminants will be added to the ever-increasing list of dangerous substances lurking in our drinking water.

Here is a quote from Healthy, Wealthy, You website, You might be thinking “Well hey, I’ll just stick to bottled water!”.  Well hold your horses!  A report released by the Environmental Working Group found disinfection byproducts, fertilizer residue, and pain medication in bottled water, not to mention the familiar toxins in found in tap water, chlorine and fluoride.  On top of this bottled water is 1,900 x more expensive than tap water!  Bottled water just doesn’t cut it!

A good water filter is a must, and will pay for itself quickly from the savings of avoiding bottled water.  A home filtration system makes your water exponentially safer by removing dangerous contaminates like lead, arsenic, chlorine, bacteria, and cysts from your water before consumption, and makes it taste better too.

Don’t you think it is high time to consider installing a Reverse Osmosis system to have the peace of mind that you and your family are not drinking the dangerous chemicals and pharmaceuticals that are found in our drinking water.

At Eternally Pure Water Systems Inc. we sell an increasingly   popular Reverse Osmosis System for your drinking and cooking water ~ guaranteed to remove all contaminants and provide you with pure, healthy and refreshing tasting water.

HARPER GOV’T: SNEAK ATTACK ON OUR ENVIRONMENT

The following are excerpts from AVAAZ.ORG’s Harper Government – Sneak Attack on our Environment:

Avaaz is a global web movement to bring people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere.

The Harper government is forcing a massive “budget” bill, C -38, through Parliament that secretly guts our environmental protection laws and threatens our forests, water and wildlife – we only have days to help stop this outrageous bill before it passes.

This sneak attack … giving Harper’s Cabinet complete discretion to approve oil pipeline projects regardless of their impact on threatened species or water. But a member of Harper’s own caucus has threatened to vote against it — we can create an unprecedented outcry calling on Conservative MPs whose districts would be affected by these pipelines to reject the budget. If just one MP breaks ranks, others could follow…

22,000 barrels of oil just leaked into Alberta’s wilderness when a pipeline ruptured, yet Harper’s so-called budget bill would systematically undo the environmental protection laws designed to prevent these spills. If this bill became law, Harper and his cronies would have free reign to snake pipelines across threatened habitats, gut the Fisheries Act, and unleash massive amounts of climate-cooking gases into the world’s atmosphere.

This bill, C-38, would also prevent some seniors from receiving the Old Age Security benefit, make deep cuts to the CBC and toughen requirements for Employment Insurance, all while the government lays off thousands of employees. Harper gave MPs just four days to debate this 400-page bill, despite the massive legislative changes it contains.

The stakes could not be higher – this bill would wreak havoc on Canada’s gorgeous natural environment, could have a devastating impact on a generation of seniors and the unemployed and makes a mockery of our parliamentary process. But with a huge public outcry we can show Conservative MPs that constituents across the country will fight Harper’s misguided budget.

RAINSOFT TC WATER CONDITIONING SYSTEM_GIMPGoogle Review – Limoges customer: In Limoges and extremely happy with the results! Got only good things to say about Martin and Rainsoft of Ottawa! … we noticed that the water here was extremely hard. It was actually to the point that fixtures were getting etched, sediment clogging faucets and shower heads and well our skin was taking a beating as far as dryness goes! So after bringing a sample of water to Martin, he advised us of the hardness of the water and what solution he could provide. He not only recommended the equipment but also helped fit it into my budget. His installer was prompt and did a nice, clean and professional installation. Being that I was skeptical of how much of an impact the Rainsoft water softener would make, I took a shower that night with no expectations and I gotta tell ya, what a DIFFERENCE! The water was absolutely different and so much softer. I have a good friend that came for a visit from out of town and even he commented on how soft the water was compared to his own home. We have now had the system for a year and of course before I give a review, I like to test the product out thoroughly. Cost of ownership is not that much as far as replenishing the salt either! I always love coming home to shower after being out of town and staying at a hotel. So all in all, you can’t go wrong dealing with Martin! He is a professional and a straight shooter and makes sure his customers are taken care of. If you live in the Limoges area and don’t have one of these water softeners, you should contact Martin! No matter where we live, we will definitely be sure to have Rainsoft products in our home! Keep up the good work!

Excellent product! - Manotick customer:  We live in country and needed a water purification system. The sales rep was informative and helpful without being pushy. have had system for 3 years and am extremely satisfied.have recommended this product to others who are happy with results.

COMMENTS ON “WAYS TO SAVE WATER”

We highly recommend “WAYS TO SAVE WATER” –  an excellent article written by Sarah F. Berkowitz, as posted on Mother Nature Network, March 02, 2011 (link to article at the end of this blog). 

You will find interesting comments and Sarah’s  list of ten ways to conserve our precious water resources.

According to Sarah, “The easy access and plentiful availability of water in America and other highly developed countries can be blamed for the often wasteful attitude toward water use. For some consumers, it takes a major drought to make them aware of water waste.” and she points out ways  that we all can, by utilizing “small steps” daily,  make a “big difference”, while at the same time feel good about “preserving our limited water supply.”

 Sarah’s article points out ways to save water in your kitchen and laundry room.

In your bathroom she has hints for brushing your teeth and taking showers or baths.   

Tips also on Sarah’s list include a composting hint and a method to conserve  water in your toilet tank each time you flush. 

  Sarah has a hint for recycling your fish tank water and also one for lawn mowing.  

I whole-heartedly agree with Sarah that these steps will help us “contribute to world-wide water conservation efforts”  – and I believe they will save us money as well.

  There are two more great hints on Sarah’s list, and now that I have your interest piqued, you’ll have to check out her article on Mother Nature Network.
