Welcome to Fluoride Free Muskoka!
Informing citizens how fluoride’s health dangers far outweigh the marginal dental benefits it might offer.
A beautiful website used to exist. Keep Calm Retire brought it back again! tuneintoffm.org now reincarnated & revamped: HERE!
Everything below(and above) is content from the old Fluoride Free Muskoka website. Enjoy! <3
The corrupt fear us. The honest support us. The heroic join us.
Some details Espresso’d! Fluoride Free Muskoka [FFM] is a not-for-profit association of professionals, volunteers, and affiliates who’s goal is to educate the citizens regarding the health and environmental hazards of water fluoridation. Our mission is to work together to end artificial fluoridation in the Muskoka towns that are presently artificial fluoridating the municipal water supply. We appreciate any input from our members and encourage new research, evaluation of data, critiquing information, delegations at District meetings, distribution of petitions and/or fliers and other initiatives or actions to strengthen our cause
This website is for educational and informational purposes only. Every effort has been made to present factual and accurate information. It is suggested that you research on your own in order to fully corroborate what is presented herein. This website has been created in the spirit of being proactive, with respect, and without malice or prejudice.
Kyle O’Connor, Founder of Fluoride Free Muskoka.
I created [FFM] with the desire to reduce our already toxic environments into something more manageable for ourselves and our environment. Fluoride is more toxic than lead and comes with unintended contaminants which the people (who ultimately pay for fluoridation – forcibly) are not even aware that the fluoridation chemical (Hydrofluorosilicic acid) contains these. If people really cared about our teeth they would care about the safe delivery of the fluoride drug, would use high grade (pure) fluorides such as sodium fluoride and they would care about our consent to being medicated too.
My mission is to deliver information on a drug that has no information given. My mission, ultimately is to end Artificial Water Fluoridation all together. If you are open minded and love organic food then please join me in my mission to bring us closer to obtaining organic water. We want water, not drugs with side effects. It really is that simple!.

| My concerns about the Medical Officer of Health.
Dr. Charles Gardner is our Medical Officer of Health [MOH] and his regular, clockwork fluoride “letters to the editor” make it appear that his opinions regarding fluoride may actually be as unavoidable as fluoridation drugs themselves.
The quality of being observant is not necessary to see that our MOH is a “true believer” in Artificial Water Fluoridation [AWF]. Unless the only content you read is vintage “do it yourself manuals” and printed in foreign languages, you have likely seen the opinions of our MOH and seen them frequently.Like clockwork Dr. Gardner makes his way into various papers discussing AWF, but here is the thing: AWF already exists in Muskoka. Furthermore dental health is in no way the only role of any MOH so why is ours spending so much time on fluoride to the point where he has destroyed his ability to be diverse?
The public is unaware that our fluoridation chemical is EPA-certified toxic waste, is NOT food or pharmaceutical grade, that industrial grade fluorosilicates contains contaminants and always will, that the contaminants include: Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Radium 226 and 228 (radioactive isotopes) among others. The public is unaware because the MOH is uninformative.
If Dr. Gardner is so attached to fluoride and speaks of it so often then why why does he fail to educate us on the very medication which he dictates we must be exposed to? It would seem that if fluoride were a dire passion for our MOH that he would be honored to educate the public as to how AWF is achieved, yet we remain “fluoride illiterate”.I believe the people of Muskoka are unaware that our particular fluoridation chemical is Hydrofluorosilicic acid [HFSA], that HFSA originates from industrial waste which is a byproduct of the Phosphate Fertilizer Industry, that no long term toxicology studies exist for HFSA, that the chemical is classified as a drug. Most people in Muskoka are not even aware that they are being medicated! The list goes on and on.
Considering the fact that 29 communities consisting of nearly three-million people ended AWF last year, that AWF is banned in many countries, and that Orillia politicians have said no to fluoridating the municipal water supply this very week perhaps the MOH should reevaluate his opinions and consider our own.If Dr. Gardner wants to continue to support a form of mass-medication where the drug is both not prescribed and dosed by thirst then that is his decision, but it is time that he ask the public if we wanted this medication in the first place because that decision is rightfully ours.

| Prominent researcher apologizes for pushing fluoride!
By Barry Forbes, The Tribune, Mesa, AZ Sunday, December 5, 1999
“Why’d you do it, Doc? Why’d you toss the fluoride folks overboard?”
I had just tracked down Dr. Hardy Limeback, B.Sc., Ph.D in Biochemistry, D.D.S., head of the Department of Preventive Dentistry for the University of Toronto, and president of the Canadian Association for Dental Research. (Whew.) Dr. Limeback is Canada’s leading fluoride authority and, until recently, the country’s primary promoter of the controversial additive.
In a surprising newsmaker interview this past April, Dr. Limeback announced a dramatic change of heart. “Children under three should never use fluoridated toothpaste,” he counseled. “Or drink fluoridated water. And baby formula must never be made up using Toronto tap water. Never.”
Why, I wondered? What could have caused such a powerful paradigm shift?
“It’s been building up for a couple of years,” Limeback told me during a recent telephone interview. “But certainly the crowning blow was the realization that we have been dumping contaminated fluoride into water reservoirs for half a century. The vast majority of all fluoride additives come from Tampa Bay, Florida smokestack scrubbers. The additives are a toxic byproduct of the super-phosphate fertilizer industry.”
“Tragically,” he continued, “that means we’re not just dumping toxic fluoride into our drinking water. We’re also exposing innocent, unsuspecting people to deadly elements of lead, arsenic and radium, all of them carcinogenic. Because of the cumulative properties of toxins, the detrimental effects on human health are catastrophic.”
A recent study at the University of Toronto confirmed Dr. Limeback’s worst fears. “Residents of cities that fluoridate have double the fluoride in their hip bones vis-a-vis the balance of the population. Worse, we discovered that fluoride is actually altering the basic architecture of human bones.”
Skeletal fluorosis is a debilitating condition that occurs when fluoride accumulates in bones, making them extremely weak and brittle. The earliest symptoms?
“Mottled and brittle teeth,” Dr. Limeback told me. “In Canada we are now spending more money treating dental fluorosis than we do treating cavities. That includes my own practice.”
One of the most obvious living experiments today, Dr. Limeback believes, is a proof-positive comparison between any two Canadian cities. “Here in Toronto we’ve been fluoridating for 36 years. Yet Vancouver ˆ which has never fluoridated ˆ has a cavity rate lower than Toronto’s.”
And, he pointed out, cavity rates are low all across the industrialized world ˆ including Europe, which is 98% fluoride free. Low because of improved standards of living, less refined sugar, regular dental checkups, flossing and frequent brushing. Now less than 2 cavities per child Canada-wide, he said.
“I don’t get it, Doc. Last month, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) ran a puff piece all across America saying the stuff was better than sliced bread. What’s the story?”
“Unfortunately,” he replied, “the CDC is basing its position on data that is 50 years old, and questionable at best. Absolutely no one has done research on fluorosilicates, which is the junk they’re dumping into the drinking water.”
“On the other hand,” he added, “the evidence against systemic fluoride in-take continues to pour in.”
“But Doc, the dentists.”
“I have absolutely no training in toxicity,” he stated firmly. “Your well-intentioned dentist is simply following 50 years of misinformation from public health and the dental association. Me, too. Unfortunately, we were wrong.”
Last week, Dr. Hardy Limeback addressed his faculty and students at the University of Toronto, Department of Dentistry. In a poignant, memorable meeting, he apologized to those gathered before him.
“Speaking as the head of preventive dentistry, I told them that I had unintentionally mislead my colleagues and my students. For the past 15 years, I had refused to study the toxicology information that is readily available to anyone. Poisoning our children was the furthest thing from my mind.”
“The truth,” he confessed to me, “was a bitter pill to swallow. But swallow it I did.”
South of the border, the paradigm shift has yet to dawn. After half a century of delusion, the CDC, American Dental Association and Public Health stubbornly and skillfully continue to manipulate public opinion in favor of fluoridation.
Meantime, study after study is delivering the death knell of the deadly toxin. Sure, fluoridation will be around for a long time yet, but ultimately its supporters need to ready the life rafts. The poisonous waters of doubt and confusion are bound to get choppier.
“Are lawsuits inevitable?” I asked the good doctor. “Remember tobacco,” was his short, succinct reply.
Welcome, Dr. Hardy Limeback, to the far side of the fluoride equation.
It’s lonely over here, but in our society loneliness and truth frequently travel hand in hand.
Thank you for the undeniable courage of your convictions.
“Fluoridation is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud has.”
– Dr. Professor Albert Schatz, (Microbiology), co-discoverer of Streptomycin
“If [fluoride] gets into the river, it’s a pollutant.
If it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant,
but if it goes right into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing!”
– Dr. J. William Hirzy, E.P.A
“The plain fact that fluorine is an insidious poison, harmful, toxic and cumulative in its effects, even when ingested in minimal amounts, will remain unchanged no matter how many times it will be repeated in print that fluoridation of the water supply is ‘safe’.”
– Ludwig Gross, M.D., former Chief of Veterans Administration Cancer Research, Bronx, NY.
“In the 17th and 18th century, fluorine had a nickname.
It was called ‘The Devil’s Poison’ because it killed and maimed secretly and without exception. It is my contention that exposure to fluorine and fluoride compounds has caused more disease and deaths than any other substance known to man kind.”
– Dean Murphy, author of The Devil’s Poison: How Fluoride is killing you
“I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine–any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.”
– CHARLES E. PERKINS, Chemist, 2 October 1954
“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.”
– Charles Gordon Heyd, MD, president, AMA
“I know of absolutely no, and I mean absolutely no means of prevention that would save so many lives as simply to stop fluoridation, or don’t start it where it is otherwise going to be started. There you might save 30,000 or 40,000 or 50,000 lives a year, cancer lives. That is an awful lot of lives a year.”
– Dr. Dean Burk Ph.D. (34 years at the National Cancer Institute). Judicial hearing, January 14, 1982. Safe Water Foundation vs. City of Houston, District Court of Texas, Harris County, 151st Judicial District, 80-52271
Fluoridation “is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsolete. No doubt about that. I mean, I think those nations that are using it should feel ashamed of themselves. It’s against science.”
– Dr Arvid Carlsson, Pharmacologist and Novel Laureate in Medicine (2000)
“[fluoridation] amounts to mass medication to contest a disease which is neither life threatening nor grossly debilitating. I’d rather not see any more chemicals in the water. We’re trying to treat this problem much like trying to kill a fly with a shotgun.”
– Dr. Conrad Sonntag, Alberta Dentist, 1992
“Water fluoridation needs to end. It is good that organizations are lending their support to help push this outdated and harmful practice of fluoridation toward collapse.”
– Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.
