You’ve got to remember, it is as easy to stop this practice as turning off a tap. But to turn off that tap, you need political will. If we have the political will in our communities, we can turn that tap off. But to turn that tap off, we have to have people informed, and we have to have people organized. – Paul Connett

TO: HONOURABLE RONA AMBROSE, MINISTER OF HEALTH
Safe Water Ottawa was planning to get an injunction to stop the city from the process of water fluoridation until thorough testing and proof of safety performed by an independent, third party can be produced. We are a small group of concerned citizens and don’t have funds.
We are asking you, the Minister of Health to help end the process of water fluoridation in the same way as Israel and the 11 other countries; China, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, The Netherlands, Japan, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Norway and Hungary.
The Environmental Protection Agency state the fluoride levels in drinking water are still creating heath issues due to over exposure to fluoride. Citizens are being over exposed to fluoride….
Just In from Fluoride Action Network
Watch the Denver Fluoridation Forum
Denver, Colorado has been fluoridated since 1953, but recent pressure on the Water Board to end fluoridation from citizens and local campaigners has resulted in the board hosting the city’s first information session on the issue. The forum will be held tomorrow (July 29th) from 1:00-3:30pm at the Denver Water Administration Building, and will include a panel of three experts representing both sides of the debate.
The board’s decision on fluoridation will impact over 1.5 million residents in the Denver metro area, so if you live nearby please attend this meeting that will directly impact you, your friends, and your family. Because of time restrictions the board will not be taking public comment at the meeting, but a large crowd will have a major influence by showing board members just how many residents believe this practice should to end.
• WATCH: Anyone can view this event live on a computer starting at 1pm on the 29th. The link will be published on THIS PAGE once it becomes available. Here is the agenda for the meeting.
The expert panel in opposition to fluoridation will consist of FAN’s Director, Paul Connett, PhD, along with local campaigner and horse breeder Cathy Justus, and Dr. Jeremy Widmann who studied Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and holds a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Colorado.The proponents of fluoridation will by represented by William Bailey, DDS, formerly with the CDC, Katya Mauritson, DMD, Colorado State dental Director, and Brett Kessler, DDS, Past President of the Colorado Dental Association. Both sides have 30 minutes total with up to 20 minutes of questioning from the panel.
• Download the Pre-Event Packet with Fluoridation Documents Sent to the Board (This is a lengthy document and may be slow to download.)
The Denver Dental Society sees the forum as a threat to fluoridation and has responded by urging its members to send letters to board members. We would like to do the same. If you’re a Colorado resident or one of FAN’s Professional signers, please submit comments to the board calling for the end to fluoridation. All others please hold off on sending comments for now, until locals and experts have been heard; councilors generally don’t want to hear from out-of-state residents unless they have a medical or scientific background
