The W 5s of Fluoridation of Drinking Water

Growing up with Dental Fluorosis due to Fluoridation of Drinking Water

Fluoridation of Drinking poisoning children

Fluoride poisoning due to the ingestion of municipal drinking water ‘treated’ with poisonous fluoride compounds exacerbate the severity of various mental and emotional illnesses through its effects on the thyroid and pineal glands. The practice of fluoridation of municipal drinking water must stop!

What is Fluoridation all About?

Fluoride additives are a toxic by-product of the super-phosphate fertilizer industry, dumped into our drinking water straight from the stacks of industry…the equivalent of the forced licking of fertilizer industry chimneys!  Fluoridation of drinking water is not the beneficial action it is touted as being….it is incredibly harmful, especially to children.

In a large majority of the cases the chemical known as hydrofluorosilicic acid classified as a hazardous waste product produced by the phosphate fertilizer industry is used in the fluoridation process. Proponents of fluoridation deceptively claim that study after study support its benefits, withholding that those studies were conducted on sodium fluoride, a different chemical then what is actually being used and that they were undertaken by dental and fertilizer industry-friendly researchers.

Toothpaste containing fluoride has a warning:  Do not ingest, poisonous to children!  As does the bag it is shipped in.  Yet children drink and bath in it daily. Fluoridation of Canadian water means that the following also gets dumped into the water:  fluorine, hydrogen fluoride, lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, chromium, phosphorus, iron, iodine, silver, plus uranium238, barium, radon, cobalt, radium and polonium because it is derived from the mining processes used to extract the phosphate used in the super phosphate fertilizer industry, thus violating even further our basic human right to SAFE water.

Fluoride has been deemed an environmental toxin and environmental laws around the world forbid any company to dump it, in any form, into the air, the soil or waterways unless decontaminated. 

Clever deceptive practices by the dental and medical associations in North America who gain financially from the dental fluorosis and cancers and other medical issues the practice causes, and who are flush with major infusions of fertilizer industry money to push propaganda, made the intolerable become acceptable.  Now fertilizer companies save decontamination costs by selling it for release into drinking water during the fluoridation process, in what must be the best example of turning a lemon into lemonaide.  Therefore, as only 1% of the fluoridated water supply is ingested by humans and stored in the bones and glands, the rest goes into the waterways, onto gardens and is re-circulated into the water system and food production, each time with more fluoride added.

Dr. Frederick B Exner, author of Economic Motives Behind Fluoridation 1966:  “….Fluoride is also a compound that is a known carcinogen and a tranquilizer and that has been proven to build up to toxic levels in the body and in the environment over time.”

From ‘Everything You Wanted to Know About Fluoride But Were Afraid to Ask’ a poignant quote: “Dr Dean Burke an American biochemist, a co-discoverer of biotin, medical researcher, and a cancer researcher at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and the National Cancer Institute and not a dentist, was quoted “In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster than any other chemical.” Congressional Record 21 July 1976.

In 1997, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute (and clearly not a dentist). After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who drank fluoridated water  showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells, developed a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma, showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors and developed a rare form of liver cancer known as hepatocholangiocarcinoma.  According to a recent report on CBC, this liver cancer is now at epidemic proportions in Canada.

In a government report it was noted that as of 2011, 40% of American kids had severe dental fluorosis caused by fluoridation, with the minorities (Blacks and Hispanics) who can’t afford filtering systems showing the most severe results.  Interestingly, although Canadians were fluoridated at the same time and rate as Americans, the 2007-2009 Oral Health Statistics by the Office of the Chief Dental officer of Canada claimed that ‘dental fluorosis remains an issue of low concern in this country”!  Low concern??  This statement alone suggests that the low concern is likely the result of a more sinister agenda then we would be led to believe.  That any person may be harmed as a result of his decision-making process should make it a matter of extreme concern, not low concern, particularly since the practice has nothing to do with making drinking water safe.

Why Fluoridation  of Drinking Water?

The story we were told in 1945 after the President of the Eugenicist Society of Canada, Dr. W. Hutton, was caught secretly adding fluoride compounds to Brantford’s drinking water, was that it ‘prevented’ dental cavities.  The only time fluoride (in it’s pure form, which is not the form dumped into our water) MAY be helpful is when applied topically to the teeth, at which time it is regulated as a drug.

Industrialists skirt strict environmental laws that prohibit the release of fluoride products into the air, soil or waterways by selling them off to municipalities who are doing just that…breaking environmental rules by proxy during the fluoridation process.  The kicker is that they are spending our tax money to poison us and to directly support the depopulation agenda, ongoing since 1920s and 1930’s through the Rockefeller Foundation and the Kellogg Foundation.

But again, regardless whether it was harmful or not, which clearly it is, this practice of fluoridation of drinking water has nothing to do with making water safe to drink or saving teeth and is a violation of our basic human rights to SAFE drinking water and food security.  In fact, it categorically is making our water toxic and causing catastrophic health issues, especially for children.  It exacerbates all mental health issues and when combined with the fluoride ingredients added to psychiatric medications, results in profound fluoride toxicity.

It was proven by distinguished scientists, later blacklisted for whistleblowing, that a baby ingesting infant formula or juice prepared with tap water is automatically subjected to fluoride poison.

Where Did Fluoridation Start?

Having started with the secret addition of fluoride compounds to Brantford, Ontario municipal drinking water in 1945 by their city medical officer, fertilizer and dental lobbyist pushed their agenda across Canada for 65 years.  However 66 towns and cities are now free of fluoridated water.  Check The Regenesis Project to learn if your water is being poisoned with fluoride:  Unfortunately, until the Canadian government actually steps up to protect our basic human rights with legislation that would prohibit the addition of any substance to our drinking water that is not specifically proven to make water safer to drink, there is always the risk of the big money interests steam rolling Canadian citizens into accepting the practice of  fluoridation yet again.

When did Fluoridation Start in North America?

The practice of fluoridation of drinking water was well underway in the USA in the 1930’s as the result of the financial nurturing of the dental association by the Rockefeller and Kellogg Foundations – major proponents of eugenics (eugenicists share the goals of Hitler and the Nazi’s for one master race). In Canada, the practice was secretly started in Brantford, Ontario in 1945.  The provincial governments of Canada have bestowed on municipal authorities the right to violate our basic human rights to not be medicated without our consent, our right to SAFE drinking water as acknowledged by the UN and the right to food security (fluoride poisons food supplies, especially infant formula and juices prepared with tap water).  This behavior on the part of provincial and municipal governments violates the Canadian constitutional imperatives.

Who is Opposed to Fluoridation and Why?

Thousands of ethical and esteemed scientists and researchers around the world have called repeatedly for an end to the practice of fluoridating drinking water for a disease that is neither contagious nor life-threatening, because the claimed ‘treatment’ by fluoridation causes catastrophic health and dental issues, especially in the poor where the effect of fluoride toxicity cannot be mediated by good diet and proper health care.

In fact, the most esteemed US toxicologist, William Marcus, Senior Sciences Advisor, Criteria and Standards warned of the Fluoridegate happening in the USA as early as 1990.  For his efforts, as he explains in the Fluoridegate Video, he was fired, harassed and intimidated.  He won reinstatement in court, but still all legitimate science showing the catastrophic damage resulting from this practice, especially to children, was suppressed, oppressed and withheld from the public.  ANY and ALL efforts to warn the public were met with swift consequences, thus for decades women have been unwittingly feeding their babies infant formula and juices containing poisoned tap water with horrible and predictable health effects.

Negative consequences have also been experienced by dissenters in the Ottawa area to the point where councilors are advised by the Chief Medical Officer of the City on how to deal with any citizen who tries to make them aware of the latest ethical scientific findings and epidemiological study results of the fluoridation of drinking water.

Summary: The Practice of Fluoridation of Drinking Water:

We are not deficient in fluoride in Canada, we are deficient in public outrage and meaningful action.  City authorities are hard-pressed to disagree with the conclusion that an entire population suffers or is at high risk of suffering catastrophic health issues (especially thyroid and bone cancer) to theoretically prevent 1 dental carie in one child’s whole lifetime.  They refuse to listen to the facts or consider that they are supposed to be representing the welfare of dissenters as well as industry-funded proponents and acting in the city’s best interests!

It makes no sense that a practice such as this should be remotely considered a ‘treatment’ in Canada so important as to necessitate violation of our basic human rights, even if the fluoride product used was effective at decreasing tooth decay, which it is not.  It makes little sense to continue to fight a system bent on violation of our constitutional and UN declared basic human rights to safe drinking water and food security, using only good will and honest efforts to share legitimate information that is summarily disregarded on the whim of council members and city medical officers concerned about not ‘rocking the boat’.

When will we stand up to end the practice of medical and dental lobby groups backed by Big Pharma, Big Business and the Monsanto’s of this world poisoning us at will?  The city medical director’s opinion should never been permitted to trump the basic human rights and the constitutional rights of Canadians, ever.

Do you think a class action lawsuit against the municipalities still engaged in the wholesale and deliberate poisoning of its residents would be a meaningful step forward?

Fluoridation of Drinking Water a Mass Violation of Basic Human Rights

Fluoridation of Drinking Water is Mass Medication

According to the scientists, investigators and laypeople who know the facts, perhaps the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the public has been that of the practice of fluoridation of drinking water – the result of collusion of dentists, eugenicists and fertilizer companies for over 65 years.  The fraud persists today in many areas of North America.

In 1934, the dental association stated:  “The public attitude is impressed by, and is inclined to adopt as its own, that which it reads and that which it sees. Tell an individual or a community anything long enough or often enough and faith in its truth will almost certainly be established.” – Christiansen J.F.: “The relation of certain professional trends to private practice”, J. Am. Dent. Assn. 21 (Oct. 1934) 1763.  Translated this  means people are stupid and if you repeat a lie often enough, they will accept it as truth.

Eliminate anxiety with hypnotherapy and you eliminate IBS

Eliminate anxiety with hypnotherapy and you eliminate IBS

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) sufferers are often advised to change their diets, but despite flawless lifestyles and diets, their IBS symptoms still prevail.  This is because it is not a dietary issue: Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the result of severe and prolonged anxiety and can be resolved with hypnotherapy.

What the World’s Authorities Say About Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Google the work of Grant Thompson, and especially Peter J. Whorwell and IBS and you will see explanations there of why even a perfect diet and lifestyle will not and does not resolve correctly diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome…because it is a condition caused by the muscle spasms affecting not only the shoulders and neck but the gut lining and abdominal muscles, strangulating a part of the gut and preventing food from passing. Stuck food causes fermentation and gas and therefore distension and pain of the affected part of the gut. The muscle spasms happen due to severe and prolonged anxiety which causes significant amounts of cortisol to be released and one of it’s trademarks is the tightening of muscles. Get to a good regression-to-cause hypnotherapist in your area and have the root cause of your anxiety resolved in order to remain free of IBS ((Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It is not to say that bad diet and alcohol or other psychoactive drugs will not exacerbate IBS issues, but the Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be resolve quickly. They don’t have IBS hypnotherapy clinics in Manchester Hospital for nothing.

These same researchers have concluded that the drugs prescribed for IBS are not only useless, but actually worsen outcomes. They have found that hypnotherapy is amazingly effective at least 85%  of the time in resolving Irritable Bowel Syndrome suffering. Do yourself a favor, avoid conventional treatments for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and seek out a qualified regression hypnotherapist.

Justice is Not Justice if Psychiatry is Involved in the Justice System

Justice System Hijacked by Psychiatry is Not Justice

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.  ~Adolf Hitler

The truly useless expenditure of time and intellect in the process of pumping air into a dead horse will remain just that…useless, and in the end, extremely damaging to the person who believes the horse will get up.  However, as long as the marketing pump and the courts, justice system and governments believe that the junk science of psychiatrists and psychologists has merit in the assessment of a person’s mind and intentions, the decisions of the courts will be, essentially, the decisions of pseudo-scientists who cannot objectively prove a single thing they claim as ‘fact’, but who will arrogantly claim the horse is rising! 

What is Junk Science and How Does it Affect Justice?

In his 1993 book Galilee’s Revenge: Junk Science in the Courtroom (pp. 2,3), author Peter Huber defined the term as follows:  “Junk science is the mirror image of real science, with much of the same form but none of the same substance.. . . It is a hodgepodge of biased data, spurious inference, and logical legerdemain, patched together by researchers whose enthusiasm for discovery and diagnosis far outstrips their skill. It is a catalog of every conceivable kind of error: data dredging, wishful thinking, truculent dogmatism, and, now and again, outright fraud. “  (more…)

Saturday at the Ottawa Organic Farmers' Market

Ottawa Organic Farmers’ Market

Take the stress out of finding healthy food.  This organic farmers’ market offers great seasonal produce, honey, organic skin care products…something to delight everyone.

Sometimes it seems there are not many gems left in this world.  Our food security apepars to be at great risk of not only not meeting our nutritional requirements, but of being deliberately adulterated by harmful GMOs, pesticides and herbicides of all sorts.  Monsanto has its dirty corporate hands in our food to the point where it is estimated that 90-95% of our grocery store shelves are filled with franken GMOs and harmful chemicals. 

As people try to recover from illness – the result too often these days of relying on unhealthy food products – they are also realizing that most products sold as ‘food’ are merely food-like products (imitations) that have not only little nutritional value, but are extremely harmful to the body over time.  People are also realizing that to save oneself from the clutches of the medical/ pharmaceutical/biotech complex that makes money only when people are sick, they must get back to basics.  This involves accessing, growing and preparing whole foods free of chemicals and biotech manipulation. Ottawa’s organic farmers’ market provides just such whole foods.

Ottawa Organic Farmers’ Market is open all year round, Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Vendors offer a splendid selection of Certified Organic Meats (beef, pork, chicken, sheep, lamb and even rabbit), cheese, yoghurt, Kefir, breads, vegetables, fruit, Olive Oil, teas, herbs, local maple syrup, as well as skin care products and essential oils and many other ‘treats’ such as sprouts.  Fresh, locally grown organic greens like lettuces, spinach, kale, oriental greens, chard, chives, and rhubarb truly make one’s mouth water.  During off-growing seasons, there are local organic greenhouse veggies like broccoli, cucumbers, and zucchini!

This organic farmers’ market is snuggled in behind the Canadian Tire store at the corner of Heron Road and Bank Street in Ottawa.  Click here for the directions and a map.  Lots of parking, no pressure, tons of camaraderie and sooo friendly.  Have a question? No problem, as they take the time to nurture and educate everyone who has an interest.

Several vendors are at the organic farmers’market every Saturday, regular as clockwork and with a smile and invitation to learn and enjoy – they have become my favourites.  Not only are they extremely reliable, but they take active roles in the running of the market and have a long history of organic certification.

David Charette is the President and Market Manager of the Ottawa Organic Farmers Market and the owner of the Terre-a-Terre farm .  He exudes professionalism, dedication to the organic movement and love for his work and his customers.  He and his family set an excellent example for all other vendors, thus helping to keep the market authentic and fun.  He ensures that all vendors sign an Ottawa Organic Farmers’ Market Commitment Contract and Vendor Contract.  On top of all that, the produce he offers at the market every Saturday is second to none in quality, variety and quantity. 

Samantha Klinck, owner of Funny Duck Farms has the patience of angels, as she takes the time to explain and guide any and all who line up for her many products.  Her organic butter is to die for and her Kefir is so thick you can eat it with a fork at times.  It is not unusual to see people lined up in the hallway during the winter months, when the market is held indoors, waiting for their turn to enjoy her smile, knowledge, wisdom and reasonable pricing.

I also look forward to seeing the Leduc family produce from their farm Ferme la Rosée. They have been Certified Organic for almost 20 years already and you can visit their farm with prior appointment. Their produce is always so fresh you feel you are picking it off the plant yourself.

Special mention goes out for a vendor who has become a personal friend – Klazina Kettling.  I lived in BC for 10 years  before moving back to Ottawa in 2008; as a result, I became spoiled by the easy access to wild salmon.  So when I met Klazina at the Ottawa Organic Farmers’ Market , I was absolutely thrilled.  Klazina, who was trained as a nurse and midwife in the Netherlands before coming to Canada, offers her skills in nursing, bio-energy, and nutrition to the market.  Her offerings include Certified Wild Caught Fish, Himalayan Salts, nutritional supplements, and coconut oil. Klazina carries the AIM INTERNATIONAL line of whole food supplements and Barleylife juices.  Just a note about why I prize the Wild Salmon Klazina sells:  The Stikine River Salmon Run is one of the last wild salmon runs remaining along the B.C. Northern Coast. Unlike most wild salmon along the Southern coast, these salmon DO NOT HAVE TO PASS extensive fish farm units and water affected by fish farms to enter their natural fresh water spawning grounds.  Klazina is not always at the market, so feel free to pre-order or call her at (613) 421-6679  

See you there for some stress-free shopping…make friends, learn, share!

Growing up with low self-esteem

Child with low self-esteem

Resisting the constant pull of persistent negative emotional feelings is de-energizing and physically draining ; emotional and physical well-being is not sustainable under the burden of low self-worth and low self-esteem, in large part because it takes a great deal of energy to think and act positively and productively when we simply don’t feel great about ourselves.
