Adding fluoride to water proven harmful

This is in response to the article by Craig Fox on the subject of water fluoridation. There now exist many valid scientific studies, peer reviewed articles and much literature illustrating the negative impact of drinking water treated with fluoride contaminants such as hydrofluorocilicic acid, and there are no genuine studies illustrating any benefits whatsoever.

For some unexplained and unconscionable reasons, government health authorities have refused to conduct clinical trials and toxicology studies on this medicinal product, contrary to their own regulations on the administration of medicinal products and substances. Any dentist can tell you that fluoride only works topically. It is poison. So why do we take it systemically? It is delivered to our organs through the bloodstream, it passes the blood brain barrier, is bio- accumulative and is stored in our bones, causing brittleness. There are too many health risks to mention here. On June 10, Dr. Jayanth Kumar attended a City Council work session to influence council members to continue the treatment of our municipal water supply with this inorganic compound. It is an unlawful practice. Dr. Kumar refuses to debate the science in public despite repeated requests.

Council should put forward a motion for a moratorium on fluoridation until lawful, hard, verifiable and valid data are available about its benefits. As of now such data is nonexistent.
