It was April 2012, Hamilton city council was discussing water fluoridation and we decided to present city council with a petition calling to end the practice.
A whole host of people including toxicologists, ecologists, activists, and many more came up one after another. To present why they felt fluoridation needed to end in the city.
The petition has over 1200 signatures, enough to require the city to take action under provincial law. Unfortunately the term action is not clearly defined. The council decided to ask Health Canada for any safety information regarding the chemical being used to fluoridate (hydrofluorosilicic acid).
It is now only months away from being three years later and Health Canada has not even responded to the request, never mind answer it.
Thankfully a person in Toronto filed a FOIA request asking for any toxicological studies on hydrofluorosilicic acid. Below is a picture of the response that was received.
How can Health Canada promote fluoridation so heavily (even sending their head dental officer to city council meetings), when they do not have one single study showing that it is safe?
Would that not be medical negligence? Many would say yes. I say it is time for all of us to demand that safety studies are provided or the practices is ended.
