UK - Pupils dance while brushing their teeth in new school initiative

Pupils at Southwark Primary School brush their teethChildren at three Nottingham primary schools are being offered free dental checks in the classroom.

Staff from the charity Teeth Team organise local dentists to carry out the assessments and send letters home to parents if they think there is a cause for concern. They also apply fluoride varnish and teach children how to brush their teeth effectively during the visits.

The charity, based in Hull, has been visiting Southwark Primary School, Old Basford School and Whitemoor Academy since September. It was asked to extend its schools programme to the city by Nottingham North MP Graham Allen as part of efforts to improve the oral hygiene of children living in his constituency. Julie Fountain, Teeth Team coordinator, said: "It has been proven in Hull that we have reduced the decay rate. They [the children] get excited and I think the majority enjoy it. It's a bit messy."
The initiative seems to be popular with pupils at Southwark Primary School in Old Basford.
Deshaye, a pupil in Year 4, said: "Toothbrushing is a really good experience. If you forget to brush your teeth in the morning because you are late, you can do it at school.

"We now brush our teeth three times a day so our teeth are extra healthy."


UK- Smile, please! Toothy grins are officially wider in Lincolnshire town

OPEN WIDE: Louth residents don't have as many teeth extracted. When you greet a resident of a Lincolnshire town, don't be surprised if their grin is broader and whiter than most! Because latest figures have proved that the East Lindsey folk lose less teeth than the national average.

People in Louth have had 9.94 extractions for every 100 patients over the last year, compared to 11.47 extractions across the East Midlands as a whole.According to research from mydentist, on Eastgate, Louth - which has half a million patients in the region, people in the town lose fewer teeth - the UK average is 11.14.

Steve Williams, clinical services director for mydentist, said: "Our patients enjoy some of the lowest rates of tooth loss in the region and we're delighted to be helping them maintain a healthy mouth.

"You're much less likely to lose your teeth if you visit the dentist regularly."Research proves common problems such as tooth decay could be prevented in 60 per cent of people if they made regular visits to their dental practice and maintained good oral hygiene.

"Because of this it's vital that people have access to a dentist that can offer them appointments when they need it and first class care that prevents problems that, if untreated, could lead to tooth loss.

"When patients visit us they know their experience will be a good one – indeed more than nine out of 10 of our patients would recommend us to family and friends."

In April mydentist, the largest provider of NHS dentistry in the UK, launched online booking to help families and individuals make appointments with NHS dentists following criticism of access to dentists by Healthwatch England.

Its report into access to primary care found that many people are struggling to book an appointment with an NHS dentist, with as few as one in five surgeries in some areas taking on new patients. Mr Williams said: "We're accepting new NHS patients at our Louth practice. To book an appointment visit www.mydentist.co.uk."

In 2015 mydentist was awarded silver, gold and platinum RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards in recognition of the company's commitment to continuously improving accident and ill-health prevention at work for the benefit of its patients and workforce.



Might be a bit misinformed but good that young people are taking up the issue.

NZ - Fluoride: City Councillor claims brainwashing

James Coleman talks with Hamilton City Councillor Sue Henry on the controversial topic of fluoride in water.

This woman is a Hamilton city councillor is his last sneering remark.

Learn the scary fluoride truth

Fluoride should never go down your throat. Check the warning label on your toothpaste. If your toothpaste has fluoride in it, chances are you never checked the warning label. I never did. When I was educated about the dangers of fluoride I stopped and so should you. If you don’t throw that toothpaste in the trash and buy the non-fluoridated toothpaste, at the very least you should try the impossible and not let it get down your throat if you care about your children’s and your long term health. Neural brain degradation, thyroid damage, bone weakness and a host of other is- sues await those whose bodies can’t handle this poison.
And, oh yes, don’t drink the water if the source is the City of Durango’s water supply; unfortunately it’s fluoridated. If you want to start educating yourself, check out the website at: cleanwaterdurango.org.

F.A.N.



Today, Dec 1, 2016, marks the opening of FAN’s annual fundraiser. It also marks the beginning of an important new campaign which will inform much of what we do in 2017.

On Nov 22, Dr. Bill Hirzy and I, along with nutritionist Valerie Green and three of her children, delivered a legal petition (plus over 300 supporting documents) to the EPA headquarters in DC. This petition, written by Michael Connett, calls upon the EPA to ban the addition of fluoridating chemicals to the public drinking water under provisions in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The full petition can be accessed here, a shorter 8-page summary here, and our press release here. The EPA has 90 days to respond and after that time we can take the issue to court. This may be the lawsuit we have all been waiting for.
Click to Watch Short Video of Petition Being Delivered to EPA Headquarters
I would like to pay tribute to Michael and summarize his very special 16-year contribution to FAN’s efforts to end fluoridation.

When Michael came to us in 2000 and said he wanted to help us end fluoridation we were flabbergasted. We had no idea that he had taken any interest in our efforts. He explained that he wanted to set up a web page – which he did. A central feature of this was the Health Database, which enabled anyone, and everyone to quickly access all the studies that indicated that fluoride causes harm. This quickly became the largest database ever assembled on fluoride's toxicity. A central feature of this was the section on fluoride and the brain, for which Michael had many studies translated from Chinese, Russian and Persian. These have since been used by many key scientists (for example Choi et al, 2012) and it is at the core of the material presented in this petition to the EPA.

In 2008, Michael left FAN to go to law school, but before he did so, he left us with a splendid swan song, the video “Professional Perspectives on Water Fluoridation” which he produced and edited.
After a short spell leading FAN in 2016, Michael returned to legal practice in Los Angeles. This petition is his second swan song. It represents the culmination of both his scientific and legal contributions to FAN. In my view, it also spells out the beginning of the end of fluoridation worldwide if we all pull together and make sure as many citizens, professionals, journalists and decision-makers as possible are made aware of its contents.

We must continue to ask the promoters of fluoridation, “There are over 300 red flags waving on fluoride’s neurotoxicity, where are the green flags that give you the confidence to ignore all these studies?” So far they have failed miserably to provide any significant scientific evidence for doing so.

We must continue to ask regulators, who spend a lot of time, money and effort attempting to reduce our children’s exposure to lead because it is neurotoxic, why they stand by and allow the deliberate addition of fluoride to the drinking water, even though there is now overwhelming evidence that fluoride is also neurotoxic.

We must be ready to provide this petition and the body of scientific evidence it contains to ill-informed journalists and editors who continue to state – often in the most strident and sarcastic terms -that opponents of fluoridation have no science to support their claims.

This petition will be at the center of our fundraising effort and our campaign in 2017. While we provide regular updates on our fundraiser we will also be providing many ways you can support this effort.

This year we are seeking to raise $150,000 from 1000 donors by midnight Dec 31, 2016. All donations are tax-deductible under the 501-c3 status of our parent organization the American Environmental Health Studies Project, Inc (AEHSP).

A five-year-old Nottingham girl had to have all her baby teeth taken out because of tooth decay.

MP for Nottingham North, Graham Allen. The case has been highlighted by a dentists’ union as experts debate how to tackle the city’s “rampant” problem with poor child dental health.

........The issue has even led an MP to call for fluoride to be added to the city’s water supply in a bid to improve the condition of people’s teeth.

He called for fluoride, which is a chemical used in toothpaste to strengthen teeth and make them more resistant to decay, to be used in the water supply in the city.
He said: “There needs to be regular dental checks for all children at primary school and fluoride in the water, which is naturally occurring in many places and is added in many cities throughout the UK with dramatic improvements in dental health.”
He added: “No child at the age of five should be put under anaesthetic to have surgery on their mouths as happens in many cases in Nottingham North.”
Mr Palaley said in certain parts of the city, such as the city centre, water fluoridation would be beneficial.
He said: “Areas can be isolated with water supplies. Evidence would suggest that an increase level in fluoride is better for teeth. It’s certainly better for tooth development.
“As there’s evidence to suggest that some parents need a helping hand, this would be able to provide it.”
Ms McDonald said a small amount of fluoride in the water would also be beneficial for children if they get a lot of water into their diets.

Nottinghamshire Local Dental Committee will discuss the idea at the Park Inn, in the city centre, on Monday, January 16, to form an official response on the fluoridation proposal.


NZ - Anti-fluoride Hamilton councillor takes aim at 'smarty pants' scientists

A Hamilton councillor is under fire for lobbying her colleagues over her anti-fluoride stance.
A first-time councillor has been criticised for lobbying her elected colleagues and the district health board over her anti-fluoride views.
Siggi Henry, a Hamilton City Councillor, claims health experts and "smarty pants" scientists have brainwashed the public with misinformation over fluoride, Fairfax says.
In an email seen by the Herald, the long-time anti-fluoride campaigner has urged Waikato District Health Board (DHB) and the council to take up the cause, Fairfax said.
It comes after Henry played down her extreme anti-fluoride views during her campaign to become a councillor.
In the email Henry said she did not believe fluoride statistics promoted by Health Minister Jonathan Coleman and Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne when they announced last week that legislation has been introduced to enable DHBs to decide whether community water supplies are fluoridated, instead of councils.
"Sadly I have seen this kind of 'BS' for far too many years," she wrote to Hamilton councillors.
"I am not talking about Fluoride but Hydrofluosilicic Acid. Tooth decay is not a result of lack of fluoride but a result of too much sugar. And the DHBs should start addressing that issue.

"Maybe our DHB members can ask about Hydrofluosilicic Acid at their next meeting."
But the "extraordinary outburst" is another example of why decisions over water fluoridation should be made by district health boards and not local councils, Water New Zealand says.
Chief executive John Pfahlert said most councillors were not qualified to make decisions on fluoride in water because it was a scientific health issue, not an ideological one..................

Dental symposium addresses growing fluoride concerns

STOCKHOLM, Sweden: Although the oral health benefits of fluoride have been scientifically proven, an increasing number of people are concerned about the potential health dangers posed by the substance when ingested into the body through oral care products or fluoridated drinking water. At the Swedish Dental Association’s Annual Dental Congress, which took place in Stockholm earlier this month, the FluORO symposium discussed existing knowledge about fluoride intake, as well as the dental community’s role in addressing patients’ fears and providing accurate information about the topic.............Summarising the knowledge about fluoride and its toxicology, Dr Jon E. Dahl, Professor of Cariology at the University of Oslo in Norway, stressed that—although it is correct that fluoride is toxic—it would take very large amounts of the substance to cause any damage in the body....

What about babies or a life time of taking small amounts? Hasn't he heard of fluorosis?

Groups Urge EPA to Ban Fluoridation Based on Risk to Brain

New York – November 30, 2016 – A coalition of environmental, medical and health groups have served the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a Petition calling on the Agency to ban the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water supplies due to the risks these chemicals pose to the brain, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

The Petition, which includes over 2,500 pages of supporting scientific documentation, explains that “the amount of fluoride now regularly consumed by millions of Americans in fluoridated areas exceeds the doses repeatedly linked to IQ loss and other neurotoxic effects.” Signers include FAN, Food & Water Watch, Organic Consumers Association, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and Moms Against Fluoridation.

Dentist sees damage from sugar

As a dentist, Dr. Eli Mayes said he’s seen the impact of drugs or lack of care on teeth. However, it pales in comparison to what he witnessed practicing dentistry in Alaska.
“I’ve seen meth mouth here,” Mayes said. “I haven’t seen anything compared to what I saw up there from just sugar.”
Born and raised in Union, Mayes, who owns Eli Mayes Dental, and his family moved to La Grande when he was in the eighth grade. His father, Jerry, and mother, Suzy, have been involved in area education for years. Suzy is the principal at Central Elementary School, and Jerry retired from his position as principal of Hines Middle School earlier this year..............
..............But besides the 24 hours of daylight in the summer, which wreaked havoc on Mayes’ schedule and sleep patterns, another aspect Mayes had to get used to was the sugar damage to teeth, especially in the village children.
While it’s common knowledge in the United States that soda is unhealthy, he said parents had no problem letting 2-year-olds drink it instead of water.
“We did a survey (of) the whole North Slope, (and) the average amount per day of pop drunk by each person was six (cans) a day,” Mayes said.
He said it was common to see people of all ages with black teeth or no teeth at all, having been eaten away to where there were just black nubs at the gumline.
“I had 2-year-olds with abscesses everywhere,” he said. “We had to strap (children) down, numb everything and take out all their teeth all the time. It was so common that parents would just drop them off — like no big deal, because that’s normal to have your child’s head strapped down, without general anesthesia, and have their teeth ripped out. That’s horrible.”
Mayes and the other dentists would travel to schools and brush children’s teeth, provide fluoride and apply sealants and do radio broadcasts touting dental hygiene. He said he did start to see a shift when children began telling their parents and grandparents that sugary drinks were bad for their teeth, but he knew it would take more generations for the practice to take hold.
Mayes was there for three years before he returned to Eastern Oregon to start a partnership with Dr. Patrick Nearing, Doctor of Dental Medicine, in 2010. The partnership came about because of a happenstance meeting two years prior with Nearing’s wife on the chairlift at Anthony Lakes while Mayes was visiting home from Alaska.
“Two years later (Nearing called and said), ‘Hey, Eli, I’m looking for an associate, and my wife told me you were a dentist from La Grande.’ I had looked at three or four dental practices in the Northwest, and I was either going to renew (in Alaska) or find a private practice,” Mayes said.



Call for fluoride to be added to water to tackle 'Victorian' conditions of children's teeth

How often do your children see a dentist?MP Graham Allen is calling on Nottingham City Council to consider adding fluoride to the city's water supply as part of efforts to improve the dental health of children.
The MP for Nottingham North wants the council, together with representatives from the city's dental profession and NHS England, to meet with him to discuss the issue.
Mr Allen said that the condition of children's teeth in his constituency is "Victorian and it is intolerable in a civilised society". He said: "It's time for the warm words from public authorities to stop and the action to start. "That action has to be regular dental checks for all children at primary school and fluoride in the water, which is naturally occurring in many places and is added in many cities throughout the UK with dramatic improvements in dental health.
"No child at the age of five should be put under anaesthetic to have surgery on their mouths as happens in many cases in Nottingham North."
 
Latest Public Health England figures, published in May, show that 25 per cent of all five year olds have tooth decay – a 20 per cent drop since 2008.  A cost benefit analysis, published by Public Health England in October, shows that £12.71 will be returned on every £1 spend on water fluoridation after five years. The figure rises to £21.98 for every £1 spent after 10 years. Mr Allen's call comes as Hull City Council is considering the possibility of implementing water fluoridation.
 
Jimmy Palahey, a dentist and chair of the Nottinghamshire Local Dental Committee, agrees with the plan and said the committee will discuss the issue at a meeting Monday, January 16. He said: "I think that the health benefits of fluoride within dentistry are pretty well documented.
"My own personal view is that it is a good idea. The health benefits are well known and have been well known for decades. "Currently in more deprived areas, I think it would be a helping hand to mothers and fathers who are making sure their child's oral health is to a high standard."
 
Councillor Alex Norris, portfolio holder for adults and health at Nottingham City Council, said he would welcome the opportunity to discuss the issue further. He said: "We already place an emphasis on the oral health of children in Nottingham through schemes like Brushing Buddies, which promotes the important of regular tooth-brushing. "However, we are always interested to explore other areas where we might be able to make a positive difference.
"There is strong evidence that fluoride in water can improve the dental health of children. Of course, we need to make sure that we have carried out an assessment of current needs in Nottingham and any action would be subject to public consultation."

Doug Cross, a scientist at UK Councils Against Fluoridation, said that fluoride is a medicine and that it should not be added to water. He said: "It is a medicine. If it's a medicine it has to be regulated. "The big development is in Australia where they are taking the matter before the federal court arguing that it is a medicine and as such it's illegal to put it in a water supply without consent." A spokesman for Severn Trent Water said it is for local councils to decide if fluoride is added to water supplies.

Will they never stop trying to force fluoride on people who clearly don't want it? Having spent a £million in Southampton they are now trying Hull and Nottingham.

578 An Alternative to Fluoride with Tetsuo Nakamoto :
Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran

How Fluorosis Is Crippling India And Needs Urgent Attention

gfxThe above graphic shows that Rajasthan is most affected by Fluorosis, followed by Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. The data is sourced from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare’s answer to question 3296 in Lok Sabha, on April 1, 2014.

Fluoride, which usually enters the body through contaminated water is the chief reason behind Fluorosis and it accumulates on bones, replacing calcium. In earlier stages, there is an onset of pain. It then changes the bone structure dramatically making the movement of the joints difficult.
In extreme cases, once it gets fully entrenched on the bones, it can completely hinder the movement in the people affected by it. It impacts the physical appearance of a person’s hands, limbs and back – the three areas that are affected by it the most.

Trump’s ‘news’ source: Alien lizards, fluoride mind control and voter fraud

Radio host Alex Jones uses a megaphone to speak to crowds near Quicken Loans Arena, the venue for the 2016 Republican National Convention, in Cleveland in July. (Brian Blanco/European Pressphoto Agency)

By Dana Milbank Opinion writer November 28 at 4:12 PM
“Report: Three Million Votes in Presidential Election Cast by Illegal Aliens; Trump may have won popular vote.”

— Infowars,
website of leading conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Nov. 14

“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”

— Donald Trump, president-elect of the United States, Nov. 27

Alex Jones: The louder he yells, it seems the more people listen
Alex Jones was a powerful underground voice for the alternative conservative media, but he became a more mainstream figure in December 2015, when Donald Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, spent 30 minutes on Jones's radio program, "Info Wars." (Erin Patrick O'Connor, Manuel Roig-Franzia/The Washington Post)
We learned last week that President-elect Trump has been turning away his intelligence briefers, leaving the tedious task of learning about national-security threats to his understudy, Vice President-elect Pence.

So where is Trump getting his information? Well, now we know. On Sunday, Trump tweeted out the wild allegations that “millions of people” voted illegally for his opponent. He also tweeted that there was “serious voter fraud” in three states that went for Hillary Clinton, “so why isn’t the media reporting on this?”

The media wasn’t reporting on this because it’s a load of hooey. But one “media” outlet has been “reporting” the groundless allegations, and it’s one that Trump relied on frequently during the campaign: Alex Jones’s Infowars, the radio and Internet home of the grassy-knoll crowd.

For two weeks before Trump made his allegations, Jones had been alleging this very thing, saying there was a “wall of fraud” and that at least “five states were stolen” by Clinton. Jones alleged that Trump “clearly won the popular vote,” asserting that in addition to 3 million illegal immigrants who voted, 4 million dead people voted.

Trump, with his mixture of the incendiary and the fanciful, invented the “Infowars campaign.” Now comes the Infowars presidency. Let’s see what else is being promoted by the outlet where the next leader of the free world gets his news:

“Pizzagate Is Real: Something Is Going On, But What?” Infowars reports, asserting that “high-level Washington D.C. predatory pedophiles” are communicating via “symbols” on the menu of Comet Ping Pong, a pizza place in Northwest Washington. “Notice the symbol of the ping-pong paddles and its clever resemblance to the FBI documents’ symbol for child love,” Infowars reports.

Right! And aliens from outer space have landed in Florida — news Infowars is also currently breaking. “Was Florida Fireball a UFO?” Infowars asks, noting, “A fireball shot through the Earth’s atmosphere at 11pm on Nov. 23” and citing “social media” for the UFO bit.

The well-informed consumers of Infowars also know that at the moment the “Whereabouts of Julian Assange Remain a Mystery” since the election and WikiLeaks wants people “to stop requesting proof of life.”

Infowars listeners and readers know, as well, that requested recounts in three states are an attempt by the Green Party “to push the 2016 election into the hands of Congress.” Somewhat contradictorily, this effort also means there’s a “Democrat Counter-Coup Against Trump in Progress.” Jones warns that this is “a real threat and [George] Soros is behind it,” part of a “soft civil war.”

Jones’s rants would be funny if the soon-to-be most powerful man in the world didn’t rely so heavily on them.

Trump, the New York Times reported, called Jones after the election to thank him for his support. Trump has been on the Jones show and praised the host’s “amazing reputation”; Trump adviser Roger Stone is an Infowars regular.

Trump has echoed Jones’s allegations that climate change is a myth, that President Obama wasn’t born in America, that Muslims in New Jersey celebrated on 9/11, that Antonin Scalia was murdered, that Clinton used drugs before a debate, that “globalists” (read: prominent Jews) are trying to take over America, that vaccines cause autism and that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the John F. Kennedy assassination. Jones, who says he advises Trump privately, boasts that Trump repeats his ideas “word for word.”

As the Right Wing Watch website has documented, Jones has alleged that the U.S. government was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks (Jones posted an old video Monday in which Trump appeared to suggest that aircraft alone couldn’t have brought down the towers), the Oklahoma City bombings and mass shootings such as Sandy Hook. Jones has said that “chemtrails” from airplanes spread a “weaponized flu,” that juice boxes are part of a chemical-warfare operation to make children gay, that Justin Bieber is brainwashing children to create an American police state, that Obama murdered publisher Andrew Breitbart, that an “alien force not of this world” is targeting Trump, that intergalactic shape-shifting reptilian humanoids secretly control the world, and, of course, that water fluoridation is mass mind control.

Rest assured, fellow Americans: President Trump will deliver us from fluoride, juice boxes, outer-space reptiles and the 7 million dead people and foreigners who vote in our elections. Less clear is whether he’ll protect us from the real threats his intelligence briefers would tell him about — if he’d let them in.

Let's hope he does. I admit I listen to Alex Jones and dare I say it David Icke and agree with a lot of what they tell us. There is something or somebody manipulating the world with constant wars, the banking scams the drug industry. The globalisation and attack on Nation states as well as the planned migration. The debts of students finishing education apart from the dumbing down. Then there is the pressure to conform and censor our thinking from anything that could be labelled racist.

The Problem With Fluoride ...

Risk Assessment of Fluoride Intake from Tea in the Republic of Ireland and its Implications for Public Health and Water Fluoridation.

Abstract

The Republic of Ireland (RoI) is the only European Country with a mandatory national legislation requiring artificial fluoridation of drinking water and has the highest per capita consumption of black tea in the world. Tea is a hyperaccumulator of fluoride and chronic fluoride intake is associated with multiple negative health outcomes. In this study, fifty four brands of the commercially available black tea bag products were purchased and the fluoride level in tea infusions tested by an ion-selective electrode method. The fluoride content in all brands tested ranged from 1.6 to 6.1 mg/L, with a mean value of 3.3 mg/L. According to our risk assessment it is evident that the general population in the RoI is at a high risk of chronic fluoride exposure and associated adverse health effects based on established reference values. We conclude that the culture of habitual tea drinking in the RoI indicates that the total cumulative dietary fluoride intake in the general population could readily exceed the levels known to cause chronic fluoride intoxication. Evidence suggests that excessive fluoride intake may be contributing to a wide range of adverse health effects. Therefore from a public health perspective, it would seem prudent and sensible that risk reduction measures be implemented to reduce the total body burden of fluoride in the population.

Thyroid news - Hull's Proposed Public Consultation on Adding Fluoride to Drinking Water

Hull's Proposed Public Consultation on Adding Fluoride to Drinking Water
During 2017, we believe that Hull City Council will go out to a 3-month public consultation regarding its proposal to add fluoride to your drinking water supply as a Public Health measure to prevent dental decay in tiny children.  It is vital that you, your friends, relatives and neighbours take part in, and oppose this proposal because the fluoride in your tap water would be anti-thyroid.  In particular,  the fluoridating acid (hexafluorosilicic acid) contains a compound (hydrofluoric acid) which, when absorbed whilst taking a hot bath, damages the thyroid and produces a low thyroid condition. 
There is very little research on this and we have to go back almost a Century to pre-war Austria where a young physician called Viktor Gorlitzer von Mundy experimented on himself and then on patients who had hyperthyroidism (thyrotoxicosis as it was called then).  The results of his treatment was that he had an almost 100% success rate in dampening down their thyroid glands.  Unfortunately, in the early days, he continued the treatment for a tad too long with the result that a few of his patients developed hypothyroidism.
What was the treatment?  Gorlitzer carefully measured the volume of hot water at a certain temperature to fill a bath and very carefully measured the amount of hydrofluoric acid to be used before adding it to the hot water.  The patient was then asked to stay in the bath for a carefully defined length of time.  The hydrofluoric acid (which doesn't dissociate in water) was absorbed through the skin and reduced the over-activity of the thyroid gland.
The treatment fell out of favour in the 1960s when more standardised drugs came on the market making it easier for the physician to tailor the dose and concentration for individual patients.
Whereas most compounds dissociate in water, hydrofluoric acid is one of the exceptions to the rule.  We know that this is so because hexafluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) is a fuming acid which contains 20% fluoride, 28 contaminants, silica, factory floor water and 2% hydrofluoric acid (HF).  Because the fluoridating acid is fuming, that implies that the HF gasses off to form Hydrogen Fluoride gas - also HF.  HF is a classified poison under UK Law but it would be difficult to accuse your local government of poisoning you because you would have to prove intent to poison.
Fluoridated tap water contains HF as a non-dissociated acid so taking habitual hot baths will damage the thyroid gland.  As time passes, more and more women would experience symptoms indicating that their thyroid glands have been compromised.   A recent piece of research from Kent University found that there was 30% more women over the age of 40 with hypothyroidism if they lived in a fluoridated area compared with a non-fluoridated area.  The statistics for the West Midlands were worse: almost double the number of cases of hypothyroidism in the West Midlands compared to non-fluoridated Greater Manchester.  The difference can be explained by the soft water drunk by people to the west of Birmingham. Their low calcium tap water implies that the fluoride in their tap water is more likely to bioaccumulate in their bodies.  Calcium (and magnesium) are antidotes to fluoride.
Prior to the consultation it would be important for you to become knowledgeable about the harm caused by fluoride and you will be expected to quote sources to back up your opposition.  It will not be enough tosimply state that you are against the proposal.
Once we know for certain the date on which the Consultation will be opened for comment, I will write again in order to give you the arguments against fluoridation and the relevant references.  I cannot write the letters for you since that would look stage-managed.  I will also upload this information to my website: www.wmaf.org.uk
In the meantime, can I suggest that learning about the issue before the consultation starts would be time wisely spent.  There is much that can be done now to prevent this issue getting as far as Public Consultation and I strongly advise that you contact or visit your City Councillors to tell them about your opposition. If enough letters are written this might (just might) give Cllr Colin Inglis and his Health and Well-Being Board pause for thought.  If any of you are Cllr Colin Inglis's Constituents, I advise sending him a letter by recorded delivery.  There are three Councillors in each ward. Even if they do not belong to a political party with which you sympathise, they are there to help you and must be approached now in order to let them know that there is no public support for this quirky ill-health Public Health measure.
In 1970, Hull was faced with a fluoridation proposal.  At the time, it went no further than initial exploration.  The proposal failed because it was perceived that there was no public support for the measure.  This could happen again.  In 2002-4, the East Riding County Council considered fluoridation but after investigation, decided to pursue other more targetted dental health programmes.  Because we have better ways in which to communicate, these days, it's easier to voice disapproval.  In fact, it's vital that you do so because pro-fluoridation individuals who are also medical and dental professionals will try to persuade your Councillors that there is public support.  These professionals ought not to be regarded as being members of the 'public' but it would be difficult to deny them having their say.
It's not just those individuals with low thyroid who are likely to be in peril but the unborn child whose intelligence will be reduced due to the fluoride crossing the placenta and entering the fetal brain.   Fluoride is an endcrine disrupter, it alters the composition of bones and teeth and causes very many different health conditions depending on an individual's susceptabilities.
We urge you not to take this lying down.  Resistance is do-able and win-able and already, there people in Hull and the East Riding gathering forces to prevent the adulteration of your water supply.  We hope that you will consider joining them.

Canada - York professor leads study that could help answer fluoride safety questions

Christine TillA $300,000 grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) will allow York University to lead the largest study to date that investigates whether early life exposure to low level fluoride affects the developing brain.
Previous studies led by Till and former PhD student, Ashley Malin, indicate that fluoride in tap water is associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. Findings were determined using information collected by the National Survey of Children’s Health as well as the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S.Faculty of Health Professor Christine Till, principal investigator of the study, will use the funding to determine if prenatal and childhood exposure to fluoride impacts learning abilities and behavioural problems in young Canadian children.
This two-year study, however, will access data from a Canadian pregnancy cohort, Maternal Infant Research on Environmental Contaminants (MIREC), to determine whether or not there is a link.
The research team consists of scientists from complementary fields spanning environmental health (Professor Lanphear, Simon Fraser University; Professor Muckle, Universite Laval), dentistry (Dr. Martinez-Mier, Indiana University), toxicology (Professor Ayotte, University of Montreal), and environmental epidemiology (Professor Hornung, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital).
“Our study employs a prospective design that includes biomarkers of exposure to fluoride, detailed assessment of potential confounders, a comparison group, and the use of sensitive cognitive and behavioural measures that have been collected in one of the world’s most comprehensively characterized national pregnancy cohorts (MIREC),” said Till.
Fluoride concentrations will be measured using urine samples obtained in each trimester from a sample of 1,960 pregnant women living in 10 large Canadian cities – half of which add fluoride to municipal water.
The children born to these women have been followed since infancy and underwent cognitive testing between the ages of 3 and 4 years.
The study will also examine whether neuro-developmental outcomes differ among children who ingested infant formula using fluoridated versus non-fluoridated water. It will also examine whether serial urinary fluoride concentrations in pregnant women are higher in women who live in communities that fluoridate their municipal drinking water.
“We are doing this research because it addresses a topic of great public health relevance for both Canada and the United States where community water fluoridation is a widespread practice. Scientific advisory boards, including the National Toxicology Program, conclude that there is insufficient laboratory evidence to support or refute the likelihood of fluoride neurotoxicology.  We need high quality data to address this gap in knowledge,” said Till.
“Results of the study will have the potential to strengthen environmental health risk assessments related to water fluoridation and inform policy decisions about the safety of vulnerable populations, including young children and pregnant women, consuming fluoridated water.”
She describes the research as a “win-win” situation, where both potential outcomes will provide valuable information in the hotly contested fluoride issue.


Not a lot of money to do all that research. If it does confirm the harm done it will make no difference like studies on the thyroid which found a link. are ignored.

House of Commons

Alan Johnson Labour, Kingston upon Hull 

Photo of Alan JohnsonAs I have said, only a minority of health inequality issues involve the Department of Health, but I want to highlight one that quite certainly does. The biggest cause of the hospitalisation of children between the ages of five and 14 is dental caries: 33,124 children went into hospital to be anaesthetised and have their teeth extracted in the past year. Incidentally, that is 11,000 more than for the second biggest cause of the hospitalisation of children, which is abdominal and pelvic pain. Believe it or not, it was the 12th highest cause of hospitalisation of tiny children below the age of four.

This is a health equality issue. Almost all the children who went into hospital were from deprived communities, including 700 from the city I represent. There is a safe and proven way dramatically to reduce tooth decay in children, and it also has a beneficial effect on adults. It involves ensuring the fluoridation of water up to the optimum level of 1 part per million. The cost of fluoridation is small. For every £1 spent there is a return to the taxpayer of £12 after five years and of £22 after 10 years. The evidence—from the west midlands and the north-east, and from countries across the world—has now existed for many years. A five-year-old child in Hull has 87.4% more tooth extractions than one living in fluoridated Walsall. The whole medical profession, the dental profession, the British Medical Association and the Department of Health have recognised that for many years.

In Hull, we intend to fluoridate our water as part of a concerted policy to tackle this element of health inequality. We need the Department of Health to show moral leadership by encouraging local authorities in deprived areas to pursue fluoridation, and supporting them when they do. The Health Secretary retains ultimate responsibility for public health, including ill-health prevention. This is one issue on which he can begin the process of reducing hospital admissions by encouraging preventive action and, in terms of health inequalities, giving poor kids prosperous kids’ teeth.



Noam Chomsky - When Elites Fail, and What We Should Do About It, Oct. 2, 2009


Nothing to do with fluoride. Have you ever listened to Noam Chomsky? It is really enlightening to know what the elites think of us and how we are manipulated. Do we really believe after listening to him that they have our best interests at heart?

Now MORE experts claim statins are a waste of time

Doctors say the theory on which statins are based - that lowering ‘bad’ cholesterol cuts heart disease – is ‘fundamentally flawed’ and there is no evidence that this is correct for over 60sThey say studies show cutting bad cholesterol fails to slash heart risk  
Millions of patients are being misled about the pros and cons of statins, experts claimed last night.
Accusing the medical establishment of perpetuating a ‘great cholesterol con’, they questioned whether statin pills are as effective as claimed.
The group of doctors, from Britain, the US, France and Ireland, said the very theory on which statins are based – that lowering ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol cuts heart disease – is ‘fundamentally flawed’........

Canada - Fluoride foes protest after staff tell Peel that water treatment is safe

Water Fluoride ProtestBy Roger Belgrave
Peel’s Medical Officer of Health told a committee reviewing the use of fluoride in the region’s drinking water that there is no “quality” or “relevant” research to suggest the longtime practice poses a health risk when Health Canada standards are followed.

Dr. Eileen de Villa spoke to the region’s Community Water Fluoridation Committee Nov. 24 to present staff findings from a review of studies on the effectiveness and safety of community water fluoridation.
De Villa brought two thick binders filled with studies to the meeting — illustrating the vast library of research material produced worldwide on the health effects of fluoride in drinking water.
She noted the volumes of available data vary in quality and relevance to the situation in Peel, where fluoride is added to municipal water under strict government guidelines and at low levels.
De Villa attempted to respond to a number of concerns raised during this process initiated earlier this year to produce a recommendation to council on whether the region should continue water fluoridation.
Concerns about the region’s fluoridated water causing fluorosis are not supported by evidence that show rates of moderate to severe cases are “so low that they cannot even be reported,” she said....

Fluorosis according to the BFS and a dentist who asks patient does those white spots bother you.

In perspective
 
One of many enamel defects 
Dental fluorosis appears as markings on the enamel surface of teeth.  It is one of 90 or so 'enamel defects' that may affect teeth, and is caused when children ingest excessive amounts of fluoride from all available source while their teeth - primary and permanent - are developing in the gums. 

Mostly pearly white flecks visible only to experts under good lighting
In most cases, dental fluorosis appears as barely visible pearly white flecks on the surface of the tooth and is undetectable except by an expert.  In other words, most people whose teeth are affected by fluorosis are unlikely to notice it.  Nor are they likely to notice the majority of cases of fluorosis in other people.


Above is how the British Fluoridation Society describe fluorosis as white flecks. The video below shows a dentist drawing a young woman's attention to the same white spots as something negative. This video was on the British Dental web page.

I find it incredible that there is a society for fluoride. Is there one for lead or arsenic I doubt it?
I could understand if the sugar industry funded it.


Treating white spots on front teeth quickly, gently and esthetically? Caries infiltration with Icon makes that possible. This video shows how the English dentist Dr. Richard Field helped his patient Sahar to get her brilliant, confident smile back.

Aerosol flu vaccine with live virus to be sprayed on all Americans? It's already 'approved for deployment' in Australia


download (3)‘Sure, you’ve heard of nasal vaccines, like for Polio, but have you heard of the needle-free vaccine that’s sprayed down on you from the sky? Remember the mass aerial spraying over Miami during the great Zika hoax recently?

If you’re worried about chemtrails and the mosquito truck spraying poison all over your neighborhood and your kids out playing in the yard, get ready for the most insane, involuntary, unauthorized, unconstitutional, unethical, unsafe, untested and immoral form of forced medication ever unleashed on a nation. And you thought fluoridated water was bad.
Although FluMist, the first nasal spray flu vaccine, was utterly rejected as “ineffective” by pediatricians as well as CDC advisors for the upcoming flu season, and even though the last round of flu shots was admitted by the CDC to be a complete failure (even though they said to get it anyway), have no fear, because evil Western medicine hasn’t given up yet on completely incapacitating the entire population’s immune system with chemicals!’

Australia - Is Mackay's oral health and fluoride debate over?



Mackay Regional Council has rejected funding an oral health education program is schools despite removing fluoride from the region's water supply earlier this month.
Mackay Regional Council has rejected funding an oral health education program is schools despite removing fluoride from the region's water supply earlier this month.
THE final debate on fluoride and dental heath in Mackay may have taken place, with a council-funded oral health education program for schools rejected by the Mackay Regional Council.
Implementation of an oral health education program was proposed at the council's Infrastructure and Services Standing Committee meeting as a result of fluoride being taken out of Mackay's water supply.
"Mackay Oral Health has been approached by several parents' groups and child health nurses to enquire what Queensland Health will be providing to compensate for the water fluoridation that has been ceased,” a report before the committee said.
"Mackay Oral Health feedback is that there is an inability to provide any additional services to what they are already providing and it will require additional resources.”.......

Australia - Cairns Regional Council votes to push fluoride issue to Premier

  • Director of Oral Health for the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service Dr. Malcolm Donaldson believes adding fluoride to Cairns' drinking water will prevent tooth decay. PICTURE: BRENDAN RADKE
CAIRNS Regional has called on the Queensland Government to find an alternative solution to the ongoing water fluoridation debate. Council today made clear its position on water fluoridation, citing “divided public opinion” and the role of the State Government in oral health as the key factors in choosing not to add fluoride to Cairns water supplies.

“Through the Our Cairns surveys, we have now heard from nearly 6800 people in our community on this issue,” Mayor Bob Manning said in a statement. “The survey clearly shows that the community remains split on putting fluoride back into the water supply. With 48 per cent for and 38 per cent against, there is no overwhelming community support either for or against. “Our Cairns also, for the first time, told us why people are opposed. The overwhelming majority of those who oppose fluoride truly believe that ingesting it will harm their physical health in some way.

“When you read the comments, you come to realise the depth of their convictions on this issue and there is no doubt they will not shift in their position.

“It is also clear that fluoride is a State issue and if you believe that children in this state have poorer oral health than others, surely it’s time for Queensland Health to take responsibility for this issue as it does for other public health matters. “But even if the State Government took back the responsibility of fluoride, it would be faced with the same issue we have been – that being gaining the express consent of a significant majority of the community.

“That being the case, it is clear that Queensland Health needs to identify other ways that fluoride could be delivered to those most in need of improved oral health care outcomes.”
