Stop Fluoridation in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
To: City Council, Hamilton, Ontario
The undersigned citizens of Hamilton and surrounding area, (or employees of city establishments) do hereby petition City Council to stop the fluoridation of our drinking water supply, which is counterproductive because any fluoride ingested increases the severity of dental fluorosis and also worsens certain medical situations (eg. osteoporosis, thyroid & kidney problem and baby & birthing issues, etc.). The city should continue to address oral health through it's existing dental programs such as the Public Health Services Dental Clinic, CINOT, etc., in order to encourage proper care and brushing. Proper brushing addresses the intended dental purpose better than fluoridation, without impacting the health or preferences of other water users, or adding to the fluoride burden on the environment.
In order to effectively communicate to area decisionmakers, this petition is created only for residents and employees that are presently using Hamilton city water . Please indicate whether you are a Hamilton area resident or employee by indicating 'resident' and/or 'employee' along with your community location. Thank you.
Background information on the hazards of fluoridation can be found at many sites on the internet, including a site maintained by petition contact Bob Green Innes, and/or click on the blog link above.
