Israel to End Water Fluoridation

Israel to end fluoridationAs most of my family and friends are aware, some of my new daughter-in-law’s family stayed with us before and after our son’s wedding in August.

In getting to know each other better I found out that Natalie’s sister and fiancée are both scientists, she is doing her PHD and him his masters, both in chemistry.

They are both highly opposed to water fluoridation, citing its acute toxicity and expressed their sincere thankfulness that Israel will finally end this archaic practice.

On July 29th, 2013, the Supreme Court of Israel ruled that new regulations require Israel to stop adding fluoride chemicals into public water supplies in one year.

Israel is fortunate to have a Minister of Health that had the courage to resist pressure from pro-fluoridationists and make this important decision.

Citing a number of reasons for her decision, Yael German believes that studies reveal that:

“Fluoridation can harm pregnant women, people who suffer from thyroid problems and the elderly.  I was exposed to studies from the world that raises the suspicion that too much fluoride can harm teeth and bones.  In the current state we receive fluoride from several sources: drinking water, toothpaste, cooking water, vegetables, and it is impossible to know what’s the dose we absorb”.

Aside from the adverse health effects that can be attributed to toxic amounts of fluoride exposure German also points out that; “it harms the basic rights and freedom of choice”.

Currently, Canada is one of only 10 countries that have over 50% of their population drinking artificially fluoridated water.

What does the rest of the world know that we don’t have the courage to face!


In Health,

  1. Hello, Kathleen! It’s great that you are taking some time away from the busy day to day life that we tend to become entangled in! I have been thinking of you the last little while, and I have wanted to speak with you about some common interests. I am actually now crazy busy, although I have been away from my previous Richmond Hill office. I am for now focusing on revitalizing the Bloor West office with the intent of approximating the paradigm of the clinic that I studied with, the Paracelsus Klinik of Switzerland. Thanks for introducing Sara, who has started at that location with me. We are making some cosmetic changes and adding some new modalities and equipment, so that we can better help patients achieve the desired level of oral and overall health status. Would love to talk with you on your return. Please let me know when you are available to meet. Thanks very much, sincerely, Hans-Jurgen Schwartz, DDS

  2. Hi Dr. Schwartz,

    I have heard from Sara that things are progressing nicely for the two of you as you begin your new collaboration together. I would love to chat and would be open to setting up a time to get together to discuss all-things health related!
