Calgary Might Add Fluoride Back To Tap Water After Removing It

CALGARY — Some politicians in Calgary are pushing to bring back fluoride to the city's water system.

City council voted to stop adding fluoride in 2011, but a report is causing some councillors to reconsider.

The University of Calgary study suggests the number of cavities in children has spiked since fluoride was removed.

Edmonton has continued to fluoridate, and has seen no such spike.

Kids are suffering from lack of fluoride: dentist

Dentist Dr. Leonard Smith, an advocate for fluoride, says he hopes the city understands what a mistake it made and how the children in Calgary are suffering because of it.

Councillors Richard Pootmans and Diane Colley-Urquhart support a motion for council to hold meetings with the university experts who completed the study back in February.

"I'm hoping my colleagues will be persuaded to look at the situation once again and then from there, the bigger challenge may be, depending on the results, whether or not we go for fluoridation or perhaps other alternatives will emerge,'' said Pootmans.

I have asked many forced-fluoridation fanatics to tell me how much accumulated fluoride in the body they think is safe. So far not a single one of them has been able to answer the question.

It is unlikely to just be a coincidence that the US, Australia, and Ireland, which have had high rates of forced-fluoridation for decades, also have high rates of joint problems, and poor health outcomes in general.
