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.

“There is now a better understanding of how fluoride prevents dental decay. What little benefit fluoridated water may still provide is derived primarily through topical means (after the teeth erupt and come in contact with fluorides in the oral cavity). Fluoride does not need to be swallowed to be effective. It is not an essential nutrient. Nor should it be considered a desirable `supplement’ for children living in non-fluoridated areas. Fluoride ingestion delays tooth eruption and this may account for some of the differences seen in the past between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas (i.e. dental decay is simply postponed). No fluoridation study has ever separated out the systemic effects of fluoride. Even if there were a systemic benefit from ingestion of fluoride, it would be miniscule and clinically irrelevant. The notion that systemic fluorides are needed in non-fluoridated areas is an outdated one that should be abandoned altogether.”

“Fluoridation is the greatest fruad that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fruad has.”
– Dr. Professor Albert Schatz, (Microbiology), co-discoverer of Streptomycin
“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
“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
“It’s a toxic waste product of many types of industry; for instance, glass production, phosphate fertilizer production and many others. They would have no way to dispose of the tons of fluoride waste they produce unless they could find some use for it, so they made up this story about it being good for dental health. Then they can pass it through everyone’s bodies and into the sewer.” [A novel approach to toxic waste disposal–just feed it to the people and let their bodies “detoxify” it]. “It is a well coordinated effort, to keep it from being declared for what it is —
a toxic waste.”
– Dr Lee
“We would not purposely add arsenic to the water supply. And we would not purposely add lead. But we do add fluoride. The fact is that fluoride is more toxic than lead and just slightly less toxic than arsenic.”
– Dr. John Yiamouyianni
“Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fruad of this centry, if not of all time.”
– Robert Carton, Ph.D. Former US EPA scientist.
“According to the handbook, ‘Toxicology of Commercial Products’,
fluoride is more poisonous than lead, and just slightly less poisonous than
arsenic. It is a cumulative poison that accumulates in bones over the years.”

“This is about forcing us to be medicated through our drinking water without our consent or full disclosure of the risks.”
– Henry Rodriguez, civil rights chairman of the Texas-based LULAC.
“Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator know that it is the most efficient rat-killer.”
– Charles Perkins 1954
–The nerve-gas Soman (GD) is chemically similar to Sarin (GB), and they both contain fluorine. They are called “nerve” agents because they directly attack and destroy the nervous system. According to an EPA report (following), once you remove the fluorine from Sarin, all that remains is a non-toxic acid. In other words, fluorine–the same fluorine that is in our drinking water–is what gives sarin its “kick”.
“The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food.”
– John Holdren, (Obama’s Science Czar) Eco-science, Population, Resources, Environment 1977
“If voluntary birth reduction methods did not work a nation might have to resort to ‘the addition of a temporary sterilant to staple food or to the water supply.”
– June 1972 Dr. Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist and author of The Population Bomb
“Councillors have a responsibility to uphold the basic Human Rights of the people they represent to choose what medication they and their family wish to take, and not have it enforced through their water supply.”
(Councillor Adrian Underwood, South Ribble District Council, First Chairman of North West Councils Against Fluoridation, 1989)
“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.
“Fluoridation of water systems can be slow national suicide, or quick national liquidation. It is criminal insanity – treason!”
Dr. E.H. Bronner, Mfg. Research Chemist, Los Angeles.”
“Hereford, Texas has been called the TOWN WITHOUT A TOOTH ACHE. This is not true. But the phrase has been used effectively by the people interested in marketing SODIUM FLUORIDE all over the country… I believe that fluorine does in a mild way, retard cavities, but I also believe that the damage it does is far greater than any good it may appear to accomplish. It even makes the teeth so brittle and crumbly they can be treated only with difficulty, if at all. The dental investigators who came to our county some fifteen years ago did, in my opinion, make a serious mistake when they gave fluorine the credit for our good teeth, and overlooked the quality of food grown in our rich, well mineralized soil. Every person I found who had no dental caries, consumed much milk. Why use a poison, when correct food will maintain our bodies free from diseases and tooth decay? It is hellish and non-American to put poison in city water supplies and force citizens to drink it.”
– George W. Heard, DDS, 15 March 1954.
“.. the evidence is quite convincing that the addition of sodium fluoride to the public water supply at one part per million is extremely deleterious to the human body”.
– Chief Justice John Flaherty, of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania (presided over litigation involving fluoridation)
“E.P.A. should act immediately to protect the public, not just on the cancer data, but on the evidence of bone fractures, arthritis, mutagenicity and other effects.”
– Dr. William Marcus, Senior Toxicologist at E.P.A.
“Hundreds of millions of dollars may be wasted annually on children’s fluoride treatments by dentists. Typically given once or twice a year at routine checkups, the treatments do nothing to reduce cavities in kids, says a study of insurance records.”
– Journal of Public Health Dentistry
“All of the organizations promoting water fluoridation agree that dental fluorosis, which is the first visible sign of systemic poisoning, increases with water fluoride levels.”
– Dr. Kennedy, Past President of International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and a practicing Dentist for 20 years.
“Fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons, probably because of their capacity to modify the metabolism of cells by changing the permeability of the cell membrane and by inhibiting certain enzyme systems.”
– Journal of the American Medical Association, Sept 18, 1943
“Fluoridation of drinking water is scientifically untenable, and should not be part of a public health initiative or program,”
Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) in a new published statement. CAPE is Canada’s leading voice on environmental health issues.
“Exposing a child to (fluoride) chemicals in the first six years of life … will harm that child’s learning capability, self control, and have effects on his brain function that are lifelong,” explains Dr. Roger D. Masters, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus at Dartmouth College about the fluoride scam. “To permit that to happen when you know it’s happening, and not to interfere by stopping the use of something like silicofluoride, which makes it worse, is immoral.”
“Fluoride makes your body absorb extra aluminum. And where does the aluminum go? Your brain. And what metal shows up alarmingly in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims? You guessed it.”
– William Douglas, MD
“[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
“Well, in pharmacology, if the effect is local, it’s of course absolutely awkward to use it in any other way than as a local treatment. I mean this is obvious. You have the teeth there, they’re available for you, why drink the stuff?”
-Nobel Prize winner Dr. Arvid Carlsson
“The claim that fluoridation is one of ‘nature’s experiments’ is not valid because the salts put into the water supply, sodium fluoride or silicofluorides, are industrial products never found in natural water or in organisms. They are, furthermore, notoriously toxic, sufficiently so to be used as rat poison or insecticide. Calcium fluoride, on the other hand, which is the form commonly found in natural waters, is not toxic enough for such uses.”
— Dr. C. G. Dobbs, (Ph.D., A.R.C.S.) Bangor, Wales, England.
“Elimination of community water fluoridation at the earliest possible date would be in the best interest of public health.”
– Dr. Kathleen Thiessen, Panel Member National Academy of Sciences “Fluoride in Drinking Water” report.
“Recent science has made clear that there are real health risks of swallowing fluoridated water and few to no venefits.”
– Dr. Yolanda Whyte Pediatrician
“Fluoride is not an essential nutrient. No disease has ever been linked to a fluoride deficiency. Humans can have perfectly good teeth without fluoride.”
-Dr. Paul Connett
“Fluoridation disproportionately harms members of the black community… We need to focus on helping people get access dto dentists. Lack of fluoride does not cause cavities.”
Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, inductee in the Civil Rights Walk of Fame Providence Baptist Church
“My father was a dentist. I formerly was a strong believer in the benefits of water fluoridation for preventing cavities. But many things that we began to do 50 or more years ago we now no longer do, because we have learned further information that changes our practices and policies. So it is with fluoridation. We originally thought people needed to swallow it, so the fluoride would be incorporated into teeth before they erupted from the gums. Our belief in the need for systemic absorption was why we began adding fluoride to drinking water. But now we know that the primary, limited cavity fighting effects of fluoride are topical, when fluorides touch teeth in the mouth. We know that fluorides do little to stop cavities where they occur most often, in the pits and fissures of the back molars where food packs down into the grooves. This is why there is a big push today to use teeth sealants in the molars of children. We also have a cavity epidemic today in our inner cities that have been fluoridated for decades…
I am most deeply concerned for poor families who have babies: if they cannot afford unfluoridated water for their babies milk formula, do their babies not count? Of course they do. This is an issue of fairness, civil rights, and compassion. We must find better ways to prevent cavities, such as helping those most at riskfor cavities obtain access to the services of a dentist.”
-Andrew Young, former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador during the Clinton administration, wrote to the Georgia legislature in a March 29, 2011.
“Fluoridation goes against all modern principles of pharmacology. It’s obsolete.”
– Dr. Arvid Carlsson Novel Laureate in Medicine
“We’ve been adding fluoride chemicals to drinking water for decades to theoretically help prevent cavities, but it turns out that no one did important whole-body, outside-the-mouth health effects studies before starting fluoridation. We’ve learned that fluorides accumulate in the pineal gland, and that fluorides can also reduce IQ.”
– Daniel G. Stockin.
Stockin is the former manager of the EPA Western Regional Lead Training Center. He is a career public health professional with a background in toxics assessment and hazardous materials management. He is known internationally for his work at the Lillie Center, a Georgia-based firm working to end water fluoridation.
“Someone needs to explain to me why wanting clean drinking water makes you an activist, and why proposing to destroy water with chemical warfare doesn’t make a corperation a terrorist.”
– Winona LaDuke
“Dental Fluorosis, no matter how slight is an irreversible pathological condition recognized by authorities around the world as the first readily detectable clinical symptom of previous chronic fluoride poisoning. To suggest we should ignore such a sign is as irrational as saying that the blue-black line which appears on the gums due to chronic lead poisoning is of no significance because it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort.”
– Dr. Geoffrey Smith, Dental Surgeon, New Scientist, May 5, 1983
Dr. Don Mac Auley, Dental Advisor to Fluoride Free Water, recently expressed his concern, “in my dental practice, dental fluorosis affects nearly 50% of all children and teenagers. Some of these kids are desperately unhappy about the appearance of their teeth and there is growing concern among parents about the implications of this fluoride damage. In my opinion, dental fluorosis, no matter how mild, is the first sign of past fluoride poisoning. To ignore fluorosis or declare it is “a cosmetic effect” is like saying that the blue-black line, which appears on the gums due to chronic lead poisoning, is of no signific ance because it does not cause any pain or discomfort. This does not make sense. We should be reducing our fluoride intake because soon dental fluorosis will be at epidemic levels in Irish children. This has already happened in the United States where levels of fluorosis have sky-rocketed to 80%. The best way to reduce dental fluorosis in Ireland with immediate effect is to stop water fluoridation.”
“[T]he political profluoridation stance has evolved into a dogmatic, authoritarian, essentially antiscientific posture, one that discourages open debate of scientific issues.”
– Dr. Edward Groth, Senior Scientist, Consumers Union, 1991.
“Fluoride is now introduced at a much earlier stage of human development than ever before and consequently alters the normal fluoride-pharmacokinetics in infants. But can one dramatically increase the normal fluoride-intake to infants and get away with it?”
– Dr. Jennifer Luke.
Fluoridation “is against all principles of modern pharmacology. It’s really obsoltee. 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 of a nation’s water supply will do little for dental health; but will have catastrophic affects on general health. We cannot, must not, dare not, subject nations to this appalling risk.”

Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, PhD, Pharmacologist and Toxicologist affirms “Fluoride is a neurotoxin … There is absolutely no drug on the market that’s given in a one dose fits all situation. Make no mistake about it, adding any fluoride to the water supply is done to prevent or reduce tooth decay, which defines it as a drug while passed off as a water additive.”
“African Americans have more kidney disease and more diabetes, but nobody elected to tell us that kidney patients and diabetics are more susceptible to harm from ingested fluorides… We need to investigate this Fluoridegate mess. This is a civil rights and environmental justice issue.”
– William Owens, President of the 5,000-member-strong Coalition of African American Pastors
“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.
“This is a civil rights issue. No one should be subjected to drinking fluoride in their water, especially sensitive groups like kidney patients and diabetics, babies in their milk formula, or poor families that cannot afford to purchase unfluoridated water. Black and Latino families are being disproportionately harmed.”
– Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr
“When historians come to write about this period, they will single out fluoridation as the single biggest mistake in public policy that we’ve ever had.”
– Paul Conett, PhD, Biochemistry
“Water fluoridation is the single largest case of scientific fraud, promoted by the government, supported by taxpayer dollars, aided and abetted by the ADA and the AMA, in the history of the planet.”
– David Kennedy, DDS President International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology
“Sodium fluoride is a very toxic chemical, acting as an enzyme poison, direct irritant and calcium inactivator … .It reacts with growing tooth enamel and with bones to produce irreversible damage.”
– Granville Knight, MD president of the American Academy of NutritionCongressional Record, 31 July 56
“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
“no physician in his right mind would hand to his patient a bottled filled with a dangerous drug with instructions to take as much or as little of it as he wished … And yet, the Public Health Service is engaged upon a widespread propaganda program to insist that communities do exactly that … The purpose of administering fluoride is not to render the water supply pure and potable but to contaminate it with a dangerous, toxic drug for the purpose of administering mass medication to the consumer, without regard to age or physical condition.”
– L. Alesen, MD, president of the California Medical AssociationRobotry, p14
“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster than any other chemical.”
– Dean Burk — Congressional Record 21 July 1976
“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
“Water fluoridation is very bad medicine, because once you put it in the water, you can’t control the dose. You can’t control who gets it. There is no oversight. You’re allowing a community to do to everyone what a doctor can do to no one, i.e. force a patient to take a particular medication.”
says Dr. Connett.
“… it is my best professional judgment that, in the light of what we now know, clear evidence of harm and a lack of provable dental benefit make continuation of fluoridation both unscientific and unjustifiable.”
– Albert W. Burgstahler, Ph.D.
Richard G. Foulkes, B.A., M.D. “The theory that dental caries and fluoride levels have an inverse relationship is false. The “experimental trials” that have been the basis for fluoridation have been shown to be invalid, and, possibly, fraudulent. Dental caries have declined in developed countries independently of fluoridation. Studies of large numbers of school children show no significant difference between those living in fluoridated areas compared to those in either partially or nonfluoridated areas.”
A.K. Susheela, Ph.D., F.A.Sc., F.A.M.S., Professor of Histocytochemistry. 20 years doing scientific research in the field of Fluoride Toxicity and Fluorosis. Chief of the Fluoride and Fluorosis Research Laboratories, at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.
“I am absolutely certain that large numbers of persons all around the world are suffering from Fluoride Toxicity, to one degree or other. The various and frequent health complaints, caused by fluoride ingestion, are often (or invariably) over-looked due to unawareness at all levels, which include the health professionals or, perhaps, due to the prevailing ill conceived, unscientific notion that “fluoride is good for teeth.” Fluoride is potentially a dangerous chemical and a poisonous substance, which does no good to the human body.”
Dr. William Marcus, Ph.D., D.A.B.T., epidemiologist.
“COVER-UP AT THE EPA. A subsequent letter written to my second line supervisor stated, “If … there is a risk of cancer no matter how small the potential number of deaths per year will exceed many thousands”. This, as well as my original memorandum, was so compelling that EPA management decided that no reputable scientist within EPA could publicly state these concerns. When I continued to speak out against this politicalization of science, and the lies and cover-up I had witnessed, my dismissal from the EPA was engineered. Judge Clarke in his decision of December 3, 1992 so eloquently stated, “I conclude that the reasons given for Dr. Marcus’ firing were a pretext and that his employment was terminated because he publicly questioned and opposed E.P.A.’s fluoride policy.” The official line in Washington has been “fluoride is good”, and all evidence to the contrary has been and is being ridiculed, denied, distorted or suppressed.
John R. Lee, M.D.
“Fluoride has no known metabolic function that fulfills the category of “essential” for humans. The National Academy of Sciences, in their 1971 book FLUORIDES, Chapter 5, called “Is fluoride an essential element?”, answers with a “NO”. The federal Register, since 1979, no longer classifies fluoride as “essential or probably essential”.”
Dr. H. Moolenburgh.
“It is my considered scientific opinion, and I speak in the name of my colleagues who joined in this research, that the fluoridation of water supplies gives a significant immunosuppression of the whole population subject to it, and is one of the important precursors of the civilization illnesses that are rampant in modern industrialized society.”

“Dental fluorosis. This condition, formerly called ‘mottled teeth’, develops in approximately ten percent of children who drink fluoridated water during the period of tooth formation. It is a permanent disfigurement which can be alleviated only by expensive dental treatment. In its mildest form it is seen as ‘ghastly white’ (Black, 1916) spots or areas on the surface of the teeth (called ‘pearly white’ in the pro-fluoridation literature). More affected teeth also have areas of brown staining. This condition is often dismissed by pro-fluoridationists as merely cosmetic, but some people are very ashamed of their ugly appearance and this can lead to marked psychological problems. (In one case I encountered, the psychiatrists attributed the attempted suicide of a young child to shame resulting from this condition).”
“In my judgment, reached with a high degree of scientific certainty, fluoridation of drinking water is ineffective against dental decay and poses a great danger to those who drink it or cook with it. Fluoridation is deliberate poisoning, one of its most vulnerable targets being the expectant mother.”
– Dr. Frank Bertrand, BDS.
– Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry.
“It is my best judgment, reached with a high degree of scientific certainty, that fluoridation is invalid in theory and ineffective in practice as a preventive of dental caries. It is also dangerous to the health of consumers.”
– Mark Diesendorf, Ph.D.
“The fluoridation of drinking water delivers an uncontrolled dose of a chronically toxic substance to consumers. In artificially fluoridated areas the prevalence and severity of dental fluorosis is increasing. Reports of hypersensitivity reactions in the medical and dental literature have not been refuted scientifically.”

“We have taken a panoramic survey of the cancer mortality experience of about sixteen to nineteen million people in twenty large central cities over a span of about thirty years, dividing between those ten cities artificially fluoridating during the last fifteen to eighteen years of the thirty years considered and those ten cities remaining unfluoridated during the entire span, so as to give us the benefit of an extended base line during which the cancer death rates of the two groups were virtually identical. Following introduction of artificial fluoridation in the experimental cities, a dramatic rise in cancer mortality was there observed as compared to the experience in the control cities.”
“Based upon the fact that Dr. Dean Burke, PhD, former head of the Cytochemistry Section of the National Health Institute found that there was a 30% increase in gastrointestinal and urinary tract tumors in fluoridated cities, as compared to the demographics of unfluoridated cities; and based upon the fact that it is known that any irritant may cause cancer if it is present in the body long enough, and the further fact that the fluoride used for fluoridation of water is not a natural substance to the body, I believe that it is quite likely that fluoridation is also the cause of my tumor.”

David C. Kennedy, D.D.S., President of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (1992-1994).
“On numerous occasions, those responsible for the safety of our water have bowed to political pressure and abdicated that responsibility. The majority of developed nations have chosen to not fluoridate their water supply. Fluoride is a toxic waste by product of fertilizer production and aluminum manufacturing. Consequently, the United States is one of the major producers of this hazardous waste, it would be extremely costly to dispose as a hazardous waste. These companies have found it far cheaper to support “scientific research” into the benefits of consuming hazardous waste and sell it to the cities as a health product than to dispose of this material properly.”
“Adults in fluoridated areas consume 2.4 to 3.3 times more fluoride than adults in nonfluoridated cities. Those living in nonfluoridated areas already consume the so-call “optimum” level of fluoride without artificial fluoridation.”
Robert Roy Kintner, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry.
“Studies on decreased milk production in which I have participated show that the full impact of fluoride exposure is manifest after several generations. A calf born to a fluoride exposed cow has a certain fluoride burden at birth. The calf is continuously exposed to fluoride and her offspring is subjected to still higher fluoride accumulation, etc. We have called this the “generation effect.”
– Dr. Lennart Krook, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).
“Medical and dental groups were consistently opposed to fluoridation throughout the 30’s and 40’s. Pressure from industry groups caused an abrupt about-face in 1950. Since that time, the USPHS and the ADA have consistently suppressed any evidence which contradicted their support of fluoridation. These groups have consistently lied about the results of studies, and dismissed all controversy as settled.”
– Jim Maxey, D.D.S., BS Degree in biology.
“… the fundamental dogma of fluoridation, the proposal that fluoride has to be build into into the enamel during its formation in the developing tooth has been re-evaluated and found false by Danish scientists …”
– Jan F. Sallstrom, Ph.D., Research Associate in Pathology.
“I have been interested in water fluoridation and fluoride therapy for over 30 years. I am both professionally and corporately neutral. My opinions derive from prolonged careful study of the medical and scientific literature, and are independent of those held by any anti-fluoridation group. … Fluoride is a toxic substance. There is no system in the human body that requires fluoride as an essential element, to my knowledge. The assertion that fluoride is a “natural” element recalls similar references once made about arsenic and lead. There is no “minimal safe dose” of such elemental poisons. Fluoride has biocidal effects through its actions on a variety of enzymes and biological systems. … It is my best scientific judgement at present that fluoridated drinking water is potentially dangerous to the health of those who drink it.”

He has been knighted by the Order of St. George for his professional and humanitarian efforts.
“I have reviewed and considered scientific literature dealing with fluoride research, and have found that the adverse effects from fluoride identified in those studies accurately mirror my own negative physical symptoms. The Physicians Desk Reference and the United States Pharmacopeia both describe the adverse effects which I experienced as typical of fluoride poisoning. The later also notes that overdose is especially dangerous in children.”
– Dr. Deloss E. Winkler, A.B., M.A. and Phd. degrees in organic chemistry.
“That will be our last line of defense – to get the Senate to overrule the House on this issue,” Dr. Connett says. “In my talks, I close by saying, ‘Affecting change is like trying to drive a nail through a piece of wood. The expert can sharpen the nail, but he or she cannot push the nail through the piece of wood. I’ve helped to sharpen the nail by giving you the facts that can end fluoridation. But we need you. We need the weight of public opinion to drive that nail home.”
– Dr. Paul Connett
“Fluoridation of drinking water is mass intoxication of a population equivalent to low level poisoning.”
– Dr. Hans Moolenburgh, Medical Physician and Cancer Specialist responcible for ending fluoridation in The Netherlands.
“We have been dumping contaminated fluoride into water reservoirs for half a century.The additives are a toxic byproduct of the super-phosphate fertilizer industry. Tragically 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.”
-Dr. Hardy Limeback, BSc,PhD,DDS, Professor and Head, Preventive Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
“The height of hypocrisy is that Simcoe County’s own Dr Dick Ito, gained an academic credential for his master’s thesis based on a finding of no effect by water fluoridation on decay rates in children of Brampton and Caledon after controlling for variables in the data. Yet this same individual stumps around the Province promoting water fluoridation for which academically he found “no effect.” See ito-caledon-and-brampton-study-peel-region. One must question the veracity of his “professional” endorsement and certainly his motive.”

“What is fluoride but an attempt to treat a deficiency disease, a form of starvation with a poisonous drug? Such ignorant practices are common to our propaganda….To try to prevent a result of malnutrition by introducing poisons into the drinking water is an exhibition of insanity to our way of thinking.”
– Dr. Royal Lee, 1951

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!
