UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoridated Irish Kids Experience Massive Tooth Decay Epidemic

Today, The Time UK is reporting that Irish children are now at epidemic levels when it comes to tooth decay. Interestingly, they are blaming cereals and juices.

The labeling of high-sugar cereals, yogurts and juices for children as “healthy” is contributing to an epidemic of tooth decay, a leading dental surgeon has warned.
New research has found that 60 per cent of Irish children who required dental treatment under general anesthetic before they turned five needed teeth extracted. Some children are having as many as nine teeth pulled by the time they are 12.


Further worsening the situation, the Journal of the Irish Dental Association found that 60% of the 347 required being put under anesthesia before the age of 5 to resolve tooth decay issues.

But what’s not being discussed is the fact that fluoride contains hydrofluorosilicic acid, which is a corrosive acid. It can eat through pure metal. It can eat through concrete and hazmat suits. So what do we assume it could do to children’s teeth?

Children are the subjects of a load of fluoridation processes via their dentists and even their own toothpaste and drinking water. The combination is deadly. But it seems Ireland, the only country to not ban fluoridation, chooses to blame other factors; all factors that are present in all the other EU countries which do not share the dental tooth decay epidemic.

The government’s obtuse position is likely one of convenience. Fluoridation is big business around the world, particularly in the United States. It is a shame that profits come before our children’s health, but it is also not surprising in the least.

Fluoride Destroys Your Health in Obvious (And Stealthy) Ways

WELLNESS
Fluoride Destroys Your Health in Obvious (And Stealthy) Ways
By EDITOR July 19, 2018 

Few people realize just how far-reaching the effects of long-term exposure to fluoride can be.
Dental fluorosis may be the most obvious manifestation of fluoride damage as it discolors and pits people’s teeth, but much of the other harm it causes is not as easy to see and is often blamed on something else. Here’s a look at a few of the ways in which fluoride destroys your health.

Cognitive and IQ problems
Many people feel fluoridated water is a big reason for the general “dumbing down” of society we’ve seen in recent years. It makes sense when you consider that fluoride is a neurotoxin and 50 human studies have linked exposure to it with lower intelligence.

It affects people of all ages, with fetal brain development also suffering from fluoride exposure. One study from Harvard Medical School linked elevated levels of fluoride to lowered IQs in children. Other studies have found that it can cause memory impairments and even brain damage.

Higher risk of heart disease
Because so much fluoride accumulates in the aorta, your heart can be affected by it significantly. Fluoride leads to oxidative stress and an inflammatory response, spurring atherosclerosis and heart damage.

In addition, fluoride in ground water has been linked to high blood pressure and a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.

Male infertility
One of the less obvious effects of fluoride exposure is male infertility. Lots of people fail to connect their troubles conceiving to the chemical, even though more than 60 studies have shown that it can impact male reproduction by reducing the quantity and motility of sperm as well as testosterone levels.

If you need further proof, consider the fact that American communities where the drinking water contains more than 3 ppm of fluoride had lower fertility rates than those areas with lower levels of fluoride in a study, even though the amount in question was within the limits of what the EPA considers “safe.”

Weaker bones and skeletal fluorosis
Here’s another reason to avoid fluoride: It’s been found in studies to weaken bones. Some studies have found that areas with 4 mg per liter of fluoride in the drinking water have higher rates of fractures and lower cortical bone density. Animal studies have also found bone strength reductions at the hands of exposure to fluoride.

In addition, long-term exposure to fluoride has been found to cause skeletal fluorosis, which can lead to serious bone distortions and a “hunchback.” This is often misdiagnosed because it can look like other joint and bone diseases, like osteoarthritis.

Cell DNA damage and cancer
Fluoride causes genetic damage that can contribute to cancer. It’s been linked to lung and bladder cancers in particular, and some experts believe it can increase the risk of malignancies.

In one study, boys who were exposed to fluoridated water as children were found to have a significantly higher chance of developing bone cancer as adolescents.

Endocrine disruption
Fluoride can impact your endocrine function, inhibiting the secretion of insulin, T3, T4 and other hormones. It also impacts melatonin, which is responsible for regulating your sleep and wake cycle.

Gastrointestinal issues
Ingesting even small amounts of fluoride can cause stomach lining damage and vomiting in some people. Poison Control Centers get thousands of calls each year about excessive fluoride ingestion by children in the form of toothpaste, which can cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Fluoride can damage your health in many different ways. If you have fluoride in your water or your toothpaste, it’s time to start making some changes if you want to preserve your health.

Australia - Oberon fluoride: council meeting approves addition to water supply

CROWDED: It was standing room only in the Oberon Council chambers as the community waited for a decision on whether fluoride would be added to Oberon's water supply.A DIVISIVE community debate has ended, for now, after Oberon Council voted to allow fluoride to be added to the town’s water supply.

But the peace might not last long as fluoridation opponents are already warning that the battle isn’t over.

Oberon councillors voted 5-3 in favour of fluoridation at their ordinary meeting on Tuesday night after a months-long debate in the town that had, at times, become personal.

Previous attempts to introduce the dental health measure had been unsuccessful, the most recent being in 2014, when councillors voted 5-3 against fluoridation.

The Oberon Council chambers were packed on Tuesday night for the ordinary meeting.

Councillor Mark Kellam, who moved the motion to allow the fluoridation to go ahead, said his decision was based on sound evidence.

"I've listened to all the pros and cons and all the objective evidence and I've made this decision to fluoridate,” he said.

Oberon Council general manager Gary Wallace's report to the council said NSW Health commissioned the Social Research Centre to gauge the Oberon community’s views on fluoridation.

"The survey found that 53 per cent of all respondents agreed with adding fluoride to the public drinking water supply, 35 per cent disagreed and 12 per cent neither agreed or disagreed,” the report said.

Cr Brenda Lyon disagreed with the report findings. 

"There were only 371 people contacted – this is not a good indication,” she said.  
Not ready to give up the fight against fluoride
THE battle isn’t over.

That’s the message from those opposed to fluoride being added to Oberon’s water supply after councillors voted to go ahead with the measure on Tuesday night.

The packed council chambers soon emptied after the decision as those opposed shook their heads in shock.

Veronika Cvitanovic said as disappointing as she found Tuesday night's decision, she was more disappointed because she felt councillors had ignored all of the council feedback.

"The council feedback showed 69 per cent stated they were against fluoridation, yet councillors chose to rely on the phone survey which showed 53 per cent were in favour,” she said.

"If they had combined the raw data, they would have realised that 60 per cent were against and only 40 per cent were for fluoridation.

"But what I find even more interesting is the council feedback had 192 in favour and the survey had 197 in favour. Coincidence? I think not.

"Also, why did the survey stop at 371 respondents? Perhaps they were finding it hard to manufacture the result they required to justify their position that they had already settled upon?"  

Chris Freeman said he believed the motion to fluoridate the water was clearly decided long before Tuesday’s vote.

"The proponents of fluoridation in the community and on the council who insist that NSW Health and the ADA [Australian Dental Association] are the only voices reliably worth listening to are now out in the open and on notice,” he said.

"More than enough of the community have spoken loudly and clearly that they don't want fluoride in the water. I commend the councillors who voted against it. This is not over."  

Mr Freeman said that despite the outcome, he wanted to offer his sincere gratitude to all Oberon Council staff, particularly general manager Gary Wallace, Sharon Swannell and Lynette Safranek, who he said had worked behind the scenes to sort out what must have been a tsunami of conflicting data.

"I can appreciate the many hours of work that went into last [Tuesday] night's culmination,” he said. “Truth will prevail. The next chapter begins."

Australia - Oberon becomes one of the last NSW towns to fluoridate its water

One of the last remaining towns in New South Wales without fluoridation has decided to add it to its drinking water.

The Oberon Council on the state's central tablelands has voted five-to-three to add fluoride to the town's supply after several months of heated debate and campaigning.

It is one of eight local governments in NSW, out of more than 100 local councils in the state, that has been asked to consider fluoridation by Health Minister Brad Hazzard..........

Moms2B Update from Vermont
Campaigner and FAN Editorial Advisor, Jack Crowther, has been busy educating the citizens of Rutland, Vermont about our Moms2B campaign.  He recently shared the following update and strategy suggestion, which we hope others will be inspired by:

Here's an update on what I'm up to in Rutland:
1. Sent this letter to the local school board asking to appear and present on the fluoride-neurotoxicity/IQ research and findings. I attached the FAN flyer to my letter to prep them.
My thinking is that school board members are less political than city councilors, less worried about being popular and serving more out of an interest in education. Therefore they might be more open-minded about re-examining fluoridation. If they would take a position against it, it might induce the Board of Aldermen (our version of a city council) to re-examine the issue.
2. I'm having two 3' X 4' banners printed at Staples (<$100) to mount on a large piece of lauan plywood and display in a rack on the back of my pickup. Here is a picture of the banner that I put together on the computer from components published by FAN.
Please consider how you can utilize the same strategy in your community, or use FAN materials to create your own campaign strategy; then share your ideas and updates with fellow campaigners by emailing your achivements and thoughts to: Moms2b@fluoridealert.org

Are You Fluoridated?

Guest writer for Wake Up World
It’s time we look at the fact that we are being dosed with a chemical, in an unmonitored and unstudied way, without our consent.
What if I told you that your drinking water, and everything made from it – drinks to soups – was poisoned? What if I then told you that this poison was being presented as a health-giving intervention, presumed to be in your best interest? You might wonder how such a reality could have ever taken hold.
The sordid history of fluoridation reads like a sci-fi novel, now, being brought to the attention of the masses by efforts such as this short documentary entitled Our Daily Dose. Spend 20 minutes taking this in:
Fluoride is out of an era when “…valium was prescribed to housewives, feet were x-rayed for shoe size, cigarettes were harmless, and nuclear testing was exciting to watch. We knew less and understood the world differently.”
Despite superficial claims to aid in tooth decay prevention, internal documents reveal that fluoride was a fertilizer industry byproduct that found a home in municipal water “treatment”. Not dissimilar to the crediting of vaccination with decline in infectious disease, decline in tooth decay (until 2010) has been attributed to fluoridation of the water supply, despite the fact that this trend has been mirrored in countries with unfluoridated water. What it does result in, however, is dental fluorosis, a tell-tail sign of toxicity.
With public policy lagging behind emerging science by decades, safe fluoride ingestion amounts have decreased by 40% since 1962 (from 1.6ppb to 0.7) with no apologies for former claims of safety over those 40 years. Concerningly, longitudinal data implicates fluoride’s effects on brain function as measured by IQ. Perhaps this is an unintended consequence? Perhaps it has served as a fringe benefit to keep the populace subdued in this way? Graham Hancock might agree.
Then there is the emergence of data implicating fluoride, a halogen, in endocrine disrupting effects on thyroid which is undoubtedly related to the 23 million Americans on Synthroid, and data from the BMJ demonstrating that fluoridated water doubles the risk of hypothyroidism.
It’s time we look at the fact that we are being dosed with a chemical, in an unmonitored and unstudied way, without our consent.
We used to think that the dose made the poison. Now we understand that the picture of risk is far more nuanced, and better encompassed by concepts like the “cocktail effect“. This chemical isn’t prescribed based on weight, nor has any safe level truly been established by anything other than administrative handwaving. Today, babies fed formula made with tap water can ingest up to 100% greater doses than is deemed “acceptable”. Fluoride also crosses the placenta and is dosed to your growing fetus as part of a soup of environmental toxicants. Haven’t our babies and children been subjected to enough population-level experimentation?
While it is likely that policy will be forced to submit to the growing wave of science implicating fluoride as a brain and body poison without a known biochemical profile in any given individual’s physiology, what to do in the meantime?

Oberon review - Australia - Letter | Truth will prevail on fluoride and its use

THEY say the first victim in war is the truth. Is this a war? It’s certainly a war of words, and a war for the truth. When I first realised that everything I’d heard and seen about fluoride from the government, dentists and television wasn’t entirely kosher it was 2014, and I’d been living in this little town of ours for about four years. Although I’ve lived many places, Oberon was the first place I’d landed where I felt a strong sense of community.  
What got me out of my chair about fluoride in 2014 (the last time it reared its scaly head) was that deep sense of community among the people standing against it. They were and still are a very sincere and well-focused group of concerned local people who have spent an inordinate amount of time researching and understanding as much of the information available about sodium fluoride as they can. Their company and encouragement in the last four years has been deeply inspiring and helped me see the truth about many big issues we all collectively face in this troubled world of ours. Sodium fluoride and its uses are but one. Getting this type of fluoride (unnatural) exposed and revealed for all to see how dangerous it is to human health and, more importantly, how much we’re consuming already, is the challenge ahead and together it can be done.  
Out of convenience and profit, fluoride has penetrated our industrial, pharmaceutical and manufacturing sectors over the last 60 years via slick marketing and good engineering. It happens to be very useful in medicine, machinery, cookware, lighting, food, beverages and welding rods, to name a few. Of course, the dental industry’s credibility and profits are under major threat from any change in the mass perception of fluoride as ‘safe, effective and equitable’, and the industry is fighting to keep its market share, jobs and businesses from losing face. Thousands of their professional colleagues around the world have spoken out, and continue to do so, against fluoridation. Many dentists in NSW have left fluoride behind and run thriving businesses; toothpaste and dental product manufacturers are producing more fluoride-free products. Time to let it end and move toward a better world, cleansed of toxic industrial waste. Truth always prevails.

Australia - Letter | Lawn and vegies will get a good dose of fluoride

I WANT to alert the people of Oberon that the policy of water fluoridation makes no sense.  
I received water usage information for the town in the 2017 calendar year from the general manager.  The town used 607 megalitres of water in 2017.  
If fluoridation were to be implemented, it would mean between 607 and 910 kilograms of sodium fluoride would be added to our environment every year.
Over a 10-year period, with the population growing, that would be at the very least six tonnes to up to or in excess of 10 tonnes of sodium fluoride. It would be environmentally detrimental to fluoridate the water supply as the majority of the water treated is not drunk by anyone. If I pitched this concept to the Shark Tank, they’d fall about themselves laughing at the idea.  
New Zealand has just confirmed that the practice of fluoridation is mass medication. But I still contend how is it an effective way of treating teeth when only 0.34 per cent of water now is actually being consumed by anyone?  
It is actually even less due to people drinking bottled water and other sources, like tank water, etc. It is a method of mass medication that makes sure your lawn and vegies get a good dose of fluoride, and your pets too. What are you going to do if your pet gets sick because of the fluoride in the water?
So where does all that other water go, the 99.66 per cent? It goes on our lawns and gardens and back into the Fish River.  
The sewage treatment process does not take the fluoride out. It’s not designed to and it would be cost-prohibitive in any event. If you live downstream of the town, wouldn’t you want to know what effect fluoridation would have? This has not been addressed by council, but it should be.
This policy makes no environment sense. This policy makes no common sense. Yet another two reasons I am opposed to water fluoridation.

Fluoridation is a violation of section 11 of the Bill of Rights. However, a majority also ruled that it was "justifiable" to put a dental medication they admit works on the outside of the tooth surface, not from incorporation into the tooth enamel, into the public water supply from every man, woman, child, pregnant women, sick child, cancer patient etc to take everyday of their lives without monitoring the effects. Well that makes a lot of sense NOT! https://fluoridefree.org.nz/fluoridation-is-compulsory-medical-treatment-nz-supreme-court-rules-june-2018/

The Girl Against Fluoride

Your body is 70 % water. It goes without saying that the quality of your water matters. After actively campaigning for years as The Girl Against Fluoride, I realised that the biggest obstacle to change is awareness.
So many people have written to me saying what can we do. As Socrates says "The secret to change is focusing all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on creating the new. Change begins with us and what we do personally. The best thing you can do is to install a filter that removes fluoride and purifies chlorine and heavy metals present in drinking water. When you have a filter, educate your family and friends about why you have a filter. Tell politicians when you get the opportunity. Keep raising awareness and rippling that outwards into our collective consciousness.
I am delighted to have partnered with Simply Water, The Pure Water Company to offer you a range of Reverse Osmosis Filters that you can order for your home. For full details click this link below.
I'd love if you could share this post with your friends and family. Thank you.

NZHerald - Letters

Dental data

Ken Perrott (Letters, June 20) states Pasifika children are concentrated in fluoridated areas and yet still have notably poorer dental health.

It is invalid to correct data for differences in ethnicity, as fluoride may increase dental risks, and the real reasons for decay are still not being properly addressed.

These include: poor nutrition and brushing habits, sugar-laden diets, baby bottle rot caused by sugary drinks drunk from sipper cups or bottles (rotting top teeth) and, ironically, over-fluoridation, which causes fluorosis and other negative health effects.

"Fluoride exposure has a complex relationship in relation to dental caries and may increase caries risk in malnourished children due to calcium depletion and enamel hypoplasia, while offering modest caries prevention in otherwise well-nourished children." (Peckham and Awofeso, 2014).

'Nasty & devious’ anti-vaccination billboard sparks outrage in Australia




A new anti-vaccination billboard in Perth has sparked outrage amongst Australian doctors and caused a dispute to flare on social media. The ad poses the controversial question “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?” 



The billboard was met with fierce criticism from Australian doctors and the authorities, which vowed to pull it down, as social media users argued about whether this could violate freedom of speech. Placed on a street corner, the billboard provided a link to an American anti-vaccination group called ‘Learn The Risk.’ It defines its mission as one of raising people’s awareness of “the dangers of pharmaceutical products, including vaccines.” 

RT News




However, the message wasn’t received so well by the Australian Medical Association. As soon as the billboard was spotted, the Association insisted on having it pulled down by the local authorities. Their outrage was reinforced by Health Minister Roger Cook, who in turn branded the billboard “nasty and devious” and warned that its “misleading” nature could seriously endanger people’s lives. Cook vowed to pull all the necessary strings to have it removed as soon as possible and said he was considering toughening laws to fight against this sort of “misinformation.” 

Some on social media staunchly defended the government’s position, blaming the billboard for promoting falsehoods and feeding the conspiracy theory that vaccinations posed massive dangers to children’s health. They also suggested that the billboard was offensive to anyone with a medical background.'
