On July 29, 2013, the Supreme Court of Israel ruled that new regulations require Israel to stop adding fluoride chemicals into public water supplies in one year, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

Izun Hozer Association for Dissemination of Health Education and Yaacov Gurman petitioned Israel’s highest court, November 12, 2012, demanding that the Ministry of Health order the cessation of fluoridation because it presents health dangers and its benefits are no longer widely accepted.

A 1974 regulation mandated fluoridation throughout Israel.  But in April 2013, the Minister of Health,Yael German, created a new regulation removing that mandate.

“It must be known to you that fluoridation can cause harm to the health of the chronically ill,” including “people who suffer from thyroid problems,” German wrote in a letter addressed to doctors opposed to ending fluoridation.

The court ruled that the new regulations will not only bring an end to mandatory fluoridation in Israel in 2014 but will also put an end to any fluoridation – mandatory or voluntary.  See translation of the Court’s ruling at: http://www.fluoridealert.org/uploads/israel_supreme_ct_july2013.pdf

Paul Connett, PhD, FAN Executive Director, says,

“Zealous fluoridation promoters try to convince the American public that ‘everyone drinks fluoridated water.’ But the opposite is true. An overwhelming number of countries do not fluoridate, including 97% of the European population. In fact, over half the people in the world drinking fluoridated water live in the US. We are the odd ones out.”  Fluoridation is an outdated, unscientific, failed public health blunder,

What I find remarkable here is that Health Minister German has been able to escape the unscientific belief system on fluoridation that traps so many public health bureaucracies in fluoridated countries.

Many communities, over the last few years, stopped fluoridation in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Recently, both Wichita, Kansas and Portland, Oregon rejected fluoridation 60% to 40%. Hamilton, NZ, councilors voted 7-1 to stop 50 years of fluoridation after councilors listened to several days of testimony from those  for and against fluoridation

Windsor, Ontario, stopped 51 years of fluoridation.  Sixteen regional councils have halted or rejected fluoridation in Queensland since mandatory fluoridation was dropped there in Nov 2012.

Meanwhile, New York City Council Member Peter Vallone, Jr continues in his effort to halt fluoridation in NYC.

Research published in peer-reviewed scientific journals indicates that fluoride ingestion is ineffective at reducing tooth decay and harmful to health.  See http://www.FluorideAction.Net/issues/health

Introduction

A discussion taking place on the subpage “Dentists Against Fluoride” caught my eye recently which I found to be intellectually yielding.    I felt the discourse between “Kyle” and Steve Slott, an admitted pro-fluoridationist, would also be educational for others who are interested in this topic but might not have seen it with it being buried in the comment section on a less prominent page.

This discussion elaborates on the official justification our government uses to add Hydrofluorosilicic acid to our water supply which I have contended vehemently since the inception of our site.  Below I have copied in succinct order the banter between two very different points of view and  made its own post.

Judge for yourself which argument makes the most sense and don’t hesitate to comment on the page to weigh in.

For reference I have also included a copy of the MSDS supplied by Durham’s water management department, which support Kyle’s position that an insufficient number of animal studies have been done on Hydrofluorosilicic acid, the chemical used to systematically medicate all citizens in Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill:

Applying fluoride topically is in no way detrimental to your over all health. All fluorides used are anthropogenic meaning man made, and they are not even man made purposefully as they are by products of industry. Hazardous by-products that that, literally they must be disposed of properly as industrial waste, but this is avoided when the compounds are sold privately where like magic they become a product: a fake tooth medicine. Fluoride including natures natural fluoride CaF2 is not an essential nutrient meaning you can go your entire life without it. If you want good teeth then avoid acidic foods and drinks, or when in contact with any acidic foods rinse with or drink regular water as fast as you can which will save you from mineralization.

I suppose that “Kyle” is serious when he authoritatively makes the ridiculous statement that all fluorides used are man made? The hydrofluorosillic acid, refined and diluted for use in water fluoridation systems, is extracted from naturally occurring phosphorite rock in a wet process that also yields phosphoric acid. Phosphoric acid is further refined to be used in fertilizers that are utilized to grow our foods, in soft drinks, and other uses. The HFA and phosphoric acid are co-products of the same process. A “fake tooth medicine”? Well, the first thing I would ask of “Kyle” is that he support this equally ridiculous statement with scientifically accepted studies. As for his advice on how to obtain “good teeth” I would ask that he produce his dental credentials and license to practice dentistry. I would then advise him to contact an attorney to assess his liability for dispensing dental advice under the guise of being authoritative.

Could you possibly reply with more hate Steve?

Why I stated HFSA or other silicofluorides to be a fake tooth medicine is because they have actually never been tested. The actual fluoride products used in artificial water fluoridation have neither the required animal studies nor the required human studies to determine safety. In the absence of these safety studies, any claims that these products are “safe” are false and misleading. Additionally I say fake tooth medicine because fluoride does not prevent cavities, and rather than typing why I’d prefer to copy and paste as to explain it better and not waste time on replying to your hatred:

“(ref 4) Tooth enamel (essentially calcium phosphate) reacts with all acids to form cavities (see any chemistry text dealing with solubilities). The proton of the acid pulls the phosphate right out of the enamel, and fast. By drinking a sip of water along with the acid during eating, the acid reacts chemically with water immediately to form hydronium ion and thus the enamel is saved. One can use milk or coffee for the same purpose, since they are both non-acidic. Dr. Albert Schatz, Nobelist who discovered streptomycin, found several decades ago that sharks’ teeth with their excessive fluoride would dissolve just as readily in citric acid as ordinary non-fluoridated teeth, laying to rest the hypothesis that fluoride would stop cavities. The dental people (American Dental Association) pushed aside this discovery and Dr. Schatz’ discoveries regarding excessive baby mortalities caused by fluoridation in Chili, South America as insignificant. They returned his mail 3x unopened and would not deal with him.”

As for you saying I make comments “authoritatively”, honestly I’m just trying to ensure that people not be mass medicated and especially not done so without proper warnings. For years warnings have existed that infants not have their formulas made up with fluoridated water and what average person knows that? You label me “authoritative” for wanting to place and end to AWF while promoters like yourself literally shove a medication and poison down peoples throats an in a method which the chemical is absolutely unavoidable! And you want to call me authoritative? Get a hold of yourself Steve, and please look in the mirror.

As for my advice on how to obtain good teeth I stated the short and sweet summary of what Dr. Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemistry and Fluoride Researcher covers in his book Good Teeth, Birth to Death. And honestly while you ridicule me, dentists continue to promote fluoridation when in fact they have no say in the matter. Dentists see teeth, not the body, and what is fluoride exposed to in AWF? Every cell of the human body of course. We know fluoride devastates the thyroid, and what do dentists know about the thyroid? Nor do they know anything in toxicology, risk assessment, the bones, the brain, the pineal gland and so much more.

I won’t waste time replying to you again Steve so don’t bother antagonizing myself. Thanks.

In response to the building momentum behind the Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill anti-fluoride movement, InfoWars Nightly News recently interviewed Marcus Hill and Katie Habberman on their efforts to protest the mass poisoning of citizens via community water fluoridation.  Using new facebookesque patriot-targeted social media technology known as Planet InfoWars, the duo created Greater Raleigh Resistance, a group dedicated to resisting all manner of tyranny here in the RDU area.

What followed was a series of visits to the Raleigh City Council in addition to pivotal connections with the Durham effort of which I and this website are an integral part.  With combined enthusiasm and increased numbers, we brought our collective voice back to Raleigh City Council, which resulted in a stunning face off between a council resigned to corruption and the cold hard facts about their dubious fluoridation claims.  Watch Marcus and Katie below discuss how they leveraged Planet InfoWars to truly make a difference in our area.

PCS Phosphate Certificate of Analysis For Fluoride added to Raleigh’s Water Supplies

In the highly anticipated December 4th Raleigh City Council meeting a cadre of patriots brought forth stunning revelations about the council’s ignorance of their own policies, denial of peer reviewed scientifically factual research, and overall breathtaking silence as lies and deceptions were uncovered in mere minutes.

As per the official agenda, the night was supposed to begin with the re-airing of this 8 minute piece produced by WTVD news on water fluoridation.  The citizens involved had pre-arranged with the City Clerk to project this piece in lieu of speaking to the council, effectively using all of the allotted 3 minutes/person in combination to ensure the council members watched the clip in its entirety.

As you will see below the council fearfully denied our request to air the video simply because they do not want to “set precedent” for citizens using their allotted speaking time in combination with others.    I guess they don’t have time in their busy schedules to hear the citizen’s concerns.

All this despite the fact that the time allotted was more than it would have taken to play the clip.

Undeterred by the Council’s cowardice, Katie Habberman and Marcus Hill posed some pointed questions to the Council regarding the city-supplied certificate of analysis which shows the specific addition of multiple compounds, all toxic, under the umbrella term “Fluoride.”  Their answer, as you will find below, was deafening silence from a squirming city council resigned to their own corruption and misdirected policies.

This silence was broken only by Councilman John Odom who defended fluoridation by saying:

“I drink the water the city of Raleigh puts out, and I think it’s the best in the country.  I’ve supported it the 14 years I’ve been on this council and I certainly have no fear of making that statement.”
