When I took a look at the quarterly water report from the Carlisle water treatment plant in Hamilton.
The sentence "A naturally occurring mineral found in most waters" beside the fluoride section jumped right out to me. I couldn't believe it! Could it be true that the city of Hamilton's water supply had the naturally occuring Calcium Fluoride instead of the usual Hydrofluosilicic acid and sodium silicofluoride.

As I quickly suspected this was not true. In another section of the city website, I found this. Hydrofluosilicic acid is precisely metered into the water so as to raise the natural fluoride concentration to approximately 0.5 – 0.8 parts per million (ppm).
So what exactly is Hydrofluosilicic acid?
Hydrofluosilicic acid is the substance derived from the pollution scrubbing devices of the superphosphate fertilizer industry, 70 to 75% of which comes from the Cargill fertilizer corporation.
Fluosilicic acid, which is a classified hazardous waste, is the substance used in 90% of the water fluoridation programs.
It is a toxic waste that is illegal to dump into our lakes and rivers, but purposely added to our drinking water.
What are the known side effects?
* Increases lead absorption
* Disrupts synthesis of collagen
* Hyperactivity and/or lethargy
* Muscle disorders
* Brain damage, and lowered IQ
* Bone fractures
* Lowers thyroid function
* Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)
* Inactivates 62 enzymes
* Inhibits formation of antibodies
* Genetic damage and cell death
* Increases tumor and cancer rate
* Disrupts immune system
* Damages sperm and increases infertility
How effective is it in fighting tooth decay?
According to statistics Canada, it is not effective at all!
Here is a graph posted in the Globe and Mail April 2010. That shows very little difference in the tooth decay rates of Ontario (over 70% of water fluoridated) and Quebec (6% of water fluoridated)
So lets get this straight. The fluoride that is being added to our water has a very long list of side effects, with very little benefit to dental health, and on top of that the city of Hamilton is lying to us about the origins of the fluoride.
But it does not end there. I have now seen countless signs and billboards promoting that Hamilton's water is the clear choice.
The city council, mayor, and city employee's are knowingly lying to the people in Hamilton. As well as promoting their toxic cocktail as being safe and the "clear choice".
This is criminal negligence and they should all be fired immediately!
