  1. ARE FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS UNREGULATED UNTESTED UNAPPROVED ILLEGAL DRUGS? By Gilles Parent, ND.A. Coauthor of «Fluoridation autopsy of a scientific error» 2010

  2. WHY FLUORIDATION ? TO PREVENT AND ALLEVIATE DENTAL CAVITIES

  3. Claimed purposedefinethe nature of a productand application of lawspertinent to it

  4. Claimed Purpose of Fluoridation Products To prevent dental cavities? or 2. To make drinking water safe/potable?

  5. POSSIBLE NATURE OF FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS • DRUGS? • NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS? • MINERAL NUTRIENTS FOR FOOD FORTIFICATION? • FOOD ADDITIVES? • WATER TREATING CHEMICALS? • HAZARDOUS WASTES?

  6. Products making SPECIFIC HEALTH CLAIMS e.g. Preventing Cavities ARE DEFINED AS EITHER : • DRUGS OR • NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS THEY MUST THEN COMPLY WITH STRICT REGULATIONS

  7. IF CLAIMING ONLY «GOOD FOR HEALTH» THEY MUST BE EITHER: DRUGS?or NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS?or MINERAL NUTRIENTS FOR FOOD FORTIFICATION?

  8. IF GOOD FOR HEALTH THEY MUST BE PREPARED AND STORED IN HYGIENIC CONDITIONS AND HAVE TOXICOLOGICAL TESTS

  9. ARE THEY? NO... Petition #299, Answer #1 by Health Canada to the the Auditor General of Canada, available from:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_lp_e_938.html

  10. Supreme Court of Canada19571 Fluoridation is a "compulsory preventive medication", is “not to promote the ordinary use of water as a physical requisite for the body” has a “special health purpose”. Ruling never contested by the Canadian Government. 1- Metropolitan Toronto v. Forest Hill (Village), [1957] S.C.R. 569 http://csc.lexum.umontreal.ca/en/1957/1957scr0-569/1957scr0-569.html

  11. ARE THEY CONTROLLED AND APPROVED BY HEALTH CANADA AS DRUGS OR NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS? NO... Petition #299, Answer #1 by Health Canada to the the Auditor General of Canada, available from:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_lp_e_938.html

  12. ARE THESE FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS APPROVED BY HEALTH CANADA AS MINERAL NUTRIENTS FOR WATER FORTIFICATION? NO... Petition #299, Answer #1 by Health Canada to the the Auditor General of Canada, available from:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_lp_e_938.html

  13. ARE THESE FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS APPROVED BY HEALTH CANADA AS FOOD ADDITIVES? NO... Petition #299, Answer #1 by Health Canada to the the Auditor General of Canada, available from:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_lp_e_938.html

  14. DOES HEALTH CANADA EXERT ANY SURVEILLANCE ON FLUORIDATION PRODUCTS? NO... Petition #299, Answer #1 by Health Canada to the the Auditor General of Canada, available from:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_lp_e_938.html

  15. THEN,WHAT ARE FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS?

  16. Fluoridation chemicals are unprocessed scrubber liquorof the phosphate industry smoke stack emissions If these emissions are released in the atmosphere, they are air pollutants If these emissions are released in the river, they are water pollutants When these same chemicals are added to the municipal water, they are changed , by some miracle, into a beneficial nutrient good for your teeth and your health...

  17. Fluoridation chemicals arerecycled toxic waste It comes with a small quantity of arsenic,lead, chromium, mercury, and nucleotides without extra charges.

  18. Untested, uncontrolled, unregulated chemical waste taken directly from the industry and wilfully injected into your drinking water Neither pharmaceutical grade nor food grade but industrial grade fluoride.

  19. Are Fluoridation Products “Natural”? NO... They are MAN-MADE

  20. ARE FLUORIDE COMPOUNDS WATER TREATMENT CHEMICALS USED TO MAKE DRINKING WATER SAFE?? NO... Their aim is not to treat the water to make it safe and drinkable. Their aim is to treat cavities in people.

  21. ARE THE FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS COMPLIANT WITH STANDARD 60 OF THE NATIONAL SANITATION FOUNDATION (NSF)? NO... They have a NSF certificate but do not meet all the requirements of NSF Standard 60.

  22. One essential requirement for the NSF Standard 60 is chronic toxicological tests that demonstrate safety of the product «Chronic» means «long term»

  23. Are there any Chronic Toxicology Tests available for Fluorosilicates? NO... NSF Fact Sheet states that toxicological testing is required, but the NIEHS 2001 Review, US EPA and Safety Data Sheets state they are NOT AVAILABLE

  24. Sodium FluorosilicateMaterial Safety Data Sheet 11. Toxicological Information 11.1 Acute toxicity: Inhalation: No data available. Oral: LD50, rat, 125mg/kg (Sodium hexafluorosilicate) Dermal: No data available. Irritation: No data available. Sensitization: No data available. Comments: No data available. 11.2 Chronic toxicity: No data available. 11.3 CarcinogenicDesignation: None http://www.fluoridealert.org/pesticides/msds/sodium.fluorosilicate.solvay.pdf

  25. Letters from the US Congressional Hearings, US EPA, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences 2001 Review state that fluoridation products do NOT have TOXICOLOGICAL STUDIES Therefore... They have not been proven safe...

  26. IF FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS DO NOT HAVE LONG TERM TOXICOLOGICAL STUDIES, THEN SAFETYCANNOT BE DEMONSTRATED They are not proven... safe...

  27. Therefore... They do not satisfy NSF Standard 60...

  28. Therefore... They are not compliant with Quebec and Ontario law (Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act)

  29. Finally, what are fluoridation chemicals? • IF NOT DRUGS? • IF NOT NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS? • IF NOT MINERAL NUTRIENTS FOR FOOD FORTIFICATION? • IF NOT FOOD ADDITIVES? • IF NOT WATER TREATMENT CHEMICALS? • THEY MUST BE HAZARDOUS WASTES?

  30. FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS SATISFY ALL CRITERIA FOR HAZARDOUS AND TOXIC WASTE • Règlement sur les matières dangereuses c. Q-2, r.32, Loi sur la qualité de l'environnement (L.R.Q., c. Q-2, a. 31, 46, 70.19, 109.1 et 124.1) • Export and Import of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulations DORS/2005-149 (FEDERAL)

  31. MSDS FLUORIDE SUPPLIER’S DATA SHEET DEMONSTRATE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS ON ENVIRONMENT(SEE NEXT SLIDE)

  32. 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION: MOBILITY: No data available. ECOTOXICITY: No data available. BIOACCUMULATION: No data available. PERSISTENCE AND DEGRADABILITY: No data available. FURTHER INFORMATION: Highlytoxic to foliage. Lethal to Tinca Vulgaris at 50 ppm. http://www.magitsurplus.com/PDF%20Files/Na2SiF6-MSDS.pdf

  33. Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA): Toxic Substances List Updated Schedule 1 as of December 27, 2006 • Lead • Mercury • Inorganic arsenic • Radioactive Substances • Inorganic fluorides e.g. hydrofluorosilicic acid • Definition of Toxic Substances in Canadian Environmental Protection Act: • Persistent (cannot be destroyed)‏ • Bioaccumulative (accumulates in humans, animals and plants)‏ • Toxic (dangerous immediate or long-term effects)‏ • Anthropogenic (made/released by humans)‏

  34. Do Not Swallow!If Swallowed, Contact Poison Control Centre Immediately! “labels of fluoride-containing mouthwashes & toothpastes must carry the following cautionary statement: If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Centre right away.” “Directions for Use: Do not swallow (FDA 1995).” (1) Health Canada response #50 to Petition 221 to Auditor General of Canada:http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_221_e_30308.html (2) http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodnatur/applications/licen- prod/monograph/mono_fluoride_fluorure-eng.php

  35. CANADIAN WATER QUALITY GUIDELINE FOR FLUORIDE (AQUATIC SPECIES) 0.12 mg/liter City effluents= 0.6 to 1.2 mg/liter

  36. RELEASING FLUORIDES IN MUNICIPAL EFFLUENTS AT CONCENTRATIONS THAT EXCEED THE CONCENTRATION THAT MAY AFFECT FLORA OR FAUNA CONTRAVENE FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS

  37. ADDING TOXIC AND HAZARDOUS WASTES TO DRINKING WATER IS… A SERIOUS CRIMINAL OFFENSE

  38. PROMOTING OR PERMITTING ILLEGAL ACTS ARE… CRIMINAL OFFENSES TOO

  39. TOXIC SUBSTANCES CAN FIT ONLY TWO CATEGORIES • TOXIC WASTES OR SUBSTANCES • DRUGS

  40. IF YOU ARE A CITY COUNCILLOR, YOU THEN HAVE ONLY ONE CHOICE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO ACT ILLEGALLY… DECLARE THAT FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS ARE DRUGS

  41. THEN A COUNCILLOR WOULD FACE THREE SERIOUS LEGAL PROBLEMS WITH FLUORIDATION

  42. PROBLEM # 1 HEALTH CANADA HAS NOT APPROVED FLUORIDATION CHEMICALS AS DRUGS. IT IS ILLEGAL TO ADMINISTER UNAPPROVED DRUGSTO PATIENTS.

  43. PROBLEM #2AS COUNCILLORS ARE NOT LICENCED AS MEDICAL DOCTOR, IT IS ILLEGAL FOR THEM TO ADMINISTER A DRUG

  44. PROBLEM #3ADMINISTERING A DRUG TO PATIENTSWITHOUT THEIR CONSENT, BESIDE BEING UNAPPROVED, CONTRAVENESARTICLE 9 OF THE CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS

  45. Slippery Slope What else should we put into drinking water? Anti-depressant drugs? Anti-cholesterol drugs? Pain killers? ...

  46. Anythinglegalwithfluoridation? NO

  47. Drugs Should Not Be Put Into Drinking Water Because: 1. We cannot control how much of the drug anyone consumes in a day. 2. Citizens are deprived of Informed Choice: Information regarding risks and benefits Choice to refuse or accept drug No trained professional to assess medical need and adverse effects Illegal to Put Drugs in Drinking Water

  48. Assumptions of Food & Drugs Act Unregulated health products are dangerous therefore must be regulated. If they are not regulated, they have never been proven safe or effective. If they are not regulated, they arenot legal.

  49. Fluoridation Products NOT Regulated = NOTSafe Do we not deserve to be protected by government regulation?
