I woke up to some good news today, when I saw the headline “Green Party of Canada calls for ban on the fluoridation chemicals hexafluorosilicic acid and sodium silicofluoride.” It seems that, like me, the Green Party isn’t happy with the fact that we indiscriminately pump fluoride into our water supply and wants it banned at the federal level. Go Green Party!
Fluoride has been added to our water supply for the last 60 years, supposedly for the benefit of our teeth. It is widely believed that adding fluoride to the drinking water will help to prevent dental caries (cavities). However, the 1999 Centers For Disease Control study widely cited as justification for the fluoridation of the water supply only looked at topical applications of fluoride in the form of toothpastes and dental fluoride treatments, not ingested fluoride.
