These substances have never been approved for human ingestion, or studied for long term health effects. Yet, they are what is being added to our municipal water to provide fluoride.

In New Zealand, all District Health Boards have been instructed to pressure local councils to fluoridate any unfluoridated water supplies, regardless of the wishes of individual community members and the dental health status of the area. 

"I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable."
- Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, Past President of the American Medical Association. 

 "Fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, with the capacity to modify cell metabolism, changing the permeability of the cell membrane by inhibiting certain enzymes. Sources of fluoride intoxication include drinking water containing 1ppm or more of fluorine."
-Journal of the American Medical Association, September 18, 1943.

How did it suddenly become "safe"?


"Fluoridation is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It's obsolete. I don't think a single dentist would bring up this question in Sweden anymore."
- Dr. Arvid Carlsson, co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine (2000)

"The mutagenic properties of fluorides have been demonstrated by experiments carried out under the strictest scientific conditions. "
- Quebec Ministerial Inquiry into Fluoridation 1979. 

 "..we now know that fluoride doesn't need to be swallowed."
- Dr Hardy Limeback, former head of Preventative Dentistry, Toronto University.

"Fluoridation is a naive utopia, without practical effect, and an attack on personal liberty."
- Minister of Health, Luxembourg, 1976.
