UK - Pupils in Winthorpe learn importance of cleaning their teeth

Pupils at Seathorne Primary School ready to learn how to clean their teeth properly. ANL-160429-163012001

Pupils at Seathorne Primary School  ready to learn how to clean their teeth properly. ANL-160429-163012001Dental nurses from Skegness are working with local primary schools to reduce the shocking rise in hospital admissions of under 10s needing extractions.

A government-led Lincolnshire Smiles camaign visited Seathorne Primary School on Friday, to encourage pupils to clean their teeth at lunchtime as well as at home.

Stacey Yarnold and Lily Stroud of the town’s My Denist Practices - Tower Gardens and Skegness Family Dental Centre – went along armed with tooth brushes and toothpaste for everyone to show caring for your teeth can be fun and no-one has to be frightened to visit the dentists.

Shocking statistics about the rising number of young children being forced to have decayed teeth removed in hospital were released last week.

New figures show that nationally there were 33,000 procedures last year. The figures from the Health and Social Care Information Centre show rising numbers of children aged 10 and under needing teeth taken out.

Stacey said: “Parents often say they can’t understand why their children’s teeth are decaying because they clean their teeth every day.

“But if children snack all day their teeth are constantly under acid attack.

“Having no fluoride in the water in Lincolnshire doesn’t help. The only fluoride children get is in toothpaste.

“Children shouldn’t have to be scared to go to the dentists, but if they have an unpleasant experience like having to go to hospital it can put them off.

“We are working with schools across the district to show children how to brush their teeth properly and explain why they should do it every day. Every child will be given a toothbrush and toothpaste for school and a toothbrush to take home.”

Gina Hargrave, oral health promoter at Lincolnshire Community Health Services Trust is training the dental practice staff on how to promote oral health to five year olds.She said: “This is a great way for children and their parents to understand how brushing teeth every day with a fluoride toothpaste helps to protect teeth from tooth decay. Prevention is so much better than cure. Working together with parents, schools and local dental practices we can make sure that children in Lincolnshire have something to smile about.”

Your Water Quality - Introduction

Whether they are chemtrails or contrails either way the sky each morning is covered in white cloud that should not be there.

Improving children’s oral health through prevention

The dental profession should get behind those working to make prevention a reality, Michael Watson says.
Michael Watson

By Michael Watson

Alistair Burt MP, who is the Minister of State at the Department of Health, has set out the steps he is taking to improve dental standards amongst primary school age children, in reply to a parliamentary question.
Since 2013, local authorities have had the responsibility of improving dental health and reducing inequalities among children and young people in their area, and Public Health England has produced a toolkit to help them do this.
They are encouraged to invest in programmes that have demonstrated improvement in children’s dental health, such as community-based fluoride varnish programmes and targeted tooth brushing programmes.
Teeth Team in Hull is one party that is leading the way on initiatives such as this and is now expanding locally and into north Yorkshire, as well as providing help and advice in two other parts of England.

Tackling poor oral health in children

Earlier this month, the Local Government Association (LGA) outlined its public health role in guidance to local councils, entitled Tackling poor oral health in children.
On 15 April, the LGA highlighted the rising number of general anaesthetics carried out on children and the £140 million spent on them, an annual increase over the last four years.
In the light of the scandal of dental extractions for children, the government has recently come under criticism for not having an effective strategy for prevention, especially in recent reports on Channel 4 News and the BBC.
But as the minister said: ‘We are committed to improving the oral health of school children’ and he should at least be given credit for this.
So should some credit be given to those dental teams who are working with local authorities to improve children’s oral health.

Sugar swap campaigns

The minister went on to say that the ‘Sugar Swaps campaign’ was launched last year helping families reduce their sugar consumption through making simple swaps to their diets.
In addition, Public Health England has developed guidance for dental teams on preventing dental disease in young children and advice on prevention of dental disease has also been published by NICE.
It is so easy to make a lot of noise about how UDAs do nothing to deliver prevention, or how the government should act to stop children being sent to hospital for extractions.
Far better, I suggest, would be to get behind those in the profession and outside who are working to make prevention a reality.

Calgary councillors explore alternatives to fluoride in water

Fluoride was removed from city water in 2011

Pootmans and UrquhartCouncillors Diane Colley-Urquhart and Richard Pootmans are exploring alternatives to help low-income families with dental care (CBC)

There's growing concern over the dental health of children in low-income families in Calgary. 
A free dental service for people without insurance closed last week, and earlier this year, a University of Calgary study showed that the rate of tooth decay among children has shot up ever since the city stopped adding fluoride into our water.
Some thought that news would reignite the fight to bring back fluoride. But so far, it hasn't, but Couns. Richard Pootmans and Diane Colley-Urquart, are looking for alternatives.
"We're taking a close look at this," Pootmans told the Calgary Eyeopener. "I'm actually the last councillor left who voted to keep fluoride in the water so I maintain an interest in this."
"There's not a ton of council support at the moment, but I've been seeking solutions about the issues and the resources to help dental health."
In a controversial decision in 2011, Calgary city council voted to remove fluoride from the city's water supply. The savings from that decision — about $750,000 a year — temporarily went into studying ways of improving dental health for children living in poverty, Pootmans said.
"It was the best we could do at the time," he said. "I think it's time to revisit this issue."
Colley-Urquhart and Pootmans have both been in contact with the Alberta Dental Association and various other stakeholders to seek other solutions.
There's little support from council for reintroducing fluoride into the water, but the issue is "not just about fluoride treatment," Pootmans said.
He said the city could look at providing more sustainable funding to the city's social agencies for dental care, or ask the province for support.......

American Citizens and Media Are Incapable of Concern

Worth watching, amusing as well

Letter: Fear the establishment

Autism in America skyrocketed from one child in 2,500 20 years ago to one in 48 today. Autism was on pace to infect half of our children by 2025 until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that autism had suddenly, inexplicably remained constant between 2010 and 2012.
News of this miracle was released concurrent with the Tribeca Film Festival’s exclusion of “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.” While “Vaxxed” is actually pro-vaccine, it exposes the horrendous cost of bad and badly administered vaccines.
“Vaxxed” also exposes corruption committed by the CDC and the medical establishment. Dr. William Thompson, a senior CDC scientist, admits that in 2004 he and others falsified a study linking autism to the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. Thus, the first evidence linking autism to a vaccine was buried for a decade while the study was altered to establish that there was no link.
“Vaxxed” was directed by Andy Wakefield, a highly regraded British doctor until he discovered a relationship between gastrointestinal distress, caused by vaccines, and autism. He also questions the safety of combining vaccines and the wisdom of injecting newborns with overwhelming doses of multiple viruses and toxins. No surprise, the medical establishment maliciously stripped Wakefield of license and honor and crushed his research. Meanwhile, autism continues to devastate lives, and Wakefield strives to be heard.
Once again, the CDC is exposed as fundamentally corrupt, as in 2001 when a growing consensus, confirmed today, insisted that fluoridation is based on the false premise that fluoride prevents cavities by drinking it. Over a decade ago, it was becoming obvious that fluoride only works topically, when rubbed directly upon the surface of a tooth. Therefore there is absolutely no medical reason to drink fluoride.
Numerous authorities, including the World Health Organization, confirm this reality as they report that tooth decay is the same with or without fluoridation. So, instead of admitting error and promoting positive change, the CDC brazenly, amorally announced that adding fluoride (a neurotoxin, being linked to multiple diseases, including autism) to public water is one of the greatest accomplishments in public health, propaganda that effectively conceals the truth to this day.
Fluoride and vaccines are supremely important to the medical establishment because entire populations are required “to take their medicine.” Meanwhile, Robert DeNiro, founder of Tribeca, having endured the establishment’s wrath, now encourages people to watch “Vaxxed” and engage in “a much-needed dialogue.”

Activists to fight tooth and nail against Cairns water fluoridation

Bill Kilvert does not want fluoride placed in drinking water for health reasons. PICTURE: JUSTIN BRIERTY

ANTI-FLUORIDE campaigners have warned the State Government it will have a serious fight on its hands if it ­decides to mandate water ­fluoridation in the Far North.
A petition started by a Hervey Bay activist has called on the government to resume the mandate and State control of fluoridation in Queensland.
The petition, which started about two weeks ago, has so far attracted only 17 signatures.
State legislation currently dictates that each local government in Queensland makes the decision to add fluoride to their water supplies.
Cairns Councillor Ritchie Bates is leading the charge to have the tooth-strengthening chemical reintroduced into the city’s water supply.
Cairns Mayor Bob Manning, however, has argued the decision should be the State Government’s.
Far Northern co-ordinator of Queenslanders for Safe Water Air and Food (QSWAF) Bill Kilvert said Cairns did not need fluoridated water.

He claimed fluoride was not safe and effective, its use was a human rights and medical rights issue, there were negative impacts upon the human body, fluoridation had been ­rejected by “nearly all countries” and that many professionals had changed their minds about the chemical.
“Our 1000 members would be very angry if the government mandated fluoride,” he said. “We would fight very hard to get it out of the water but we would hope we would not have to do that.”
Mr Kilvert, a retired Telstra worker, said he had no medical background but had done about 5000 hours of research on the issue.
Barron River MP Craig Crawford said the government would need to further investigate the issue before it decided to mandate water fluoridation.
“We haven’t made any decision to go down that path or not,’’ he said.

Important study on preterm birth in Upstate New York titled Relationship between municipal water fluoridation and preterm birth in Upstate New York (2009). The lead author works for the NYS Department of Health. We learned about this study from a published abstract which stated: “Domestic water fluoridation was associated with an increased risk of PTB [preterm birth]. This relationship was most pronounced among women in the lowest SES [socio-economic-status] groups (>10% poverty) and those of non-white racial origin.” Read the full abstract.

http://www.naturalhealth365.com recorded the entire panel discussion, which followed the airing of the movie Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, at The Players Theater in New York City on Sunday, April 24, 2016 - as part of the Manhattan Film Festival.

The topics included: Vaccine corruption at the Centers for Disease Control; the greatest medical fraud of our time exposed; what the movie Vaxxed is really all about plus a shocking prediction about how the vaccine industry will likely respond to all the news about vaccine dangers swirling around in the mainstream media.

I wonder what goes through the minds of those councillors who actually listen if any do - bored indifference?

NZ - Boycott tourism in NZ: More fluorides? Bye bye.

A reader emailed me the letter he just wrote:

Dear Tourism New Zealand executive staff,

My name is Michael Blanshan. I am a naturopathic doctor in New Mexico, U.S.A. Years ago a group of friends and I were discussing New Zealand and all it has to offer as a country. Many of our group travelled to New Zealand and two families moved there, one to Nelso and one to Christchurch. These were good families with children and much to offer their local communities, not retirees looking for a country in which to retire.

In my own travels I often run into New Zealanders (aka kiwis). They are generally great travelers, good people, kind, open-minded, intelligent, and generally fun. The very spirit of New Zealand which most kiwis embody seems to me to serve as New Zealand’s best advertising.

Being a naturopath, I am keenly aware of the history of the fluoridation of drinking water, those who promoted this policy, their motivations for doing so, and the forms of pressure they use to continue the policy despite compelling scientific opposition. A local organization in New Zealand calling itself Fluoride Free NZ has worked tirelessly with communities to educate them on this issue. They worked diligently and the majority of those communities have chosen not to fluoridate their local water supplies. In response to this group’s effectiveness, the NZ federal government is now acting to take the decision making authority away from local councils and communities and put the power into the hands of District Health Boards (DHB), who are under the direct control of Central Government.

This action has profound implications, though it may seem inconsequential to you, especially considering that you are a department for tourism. Though I stated that the people of New Zealand are its best feature, this is a black mark on New Zealand as a country. It points to a corruption of your federal government and its purported goals of serving its people. To the contrary, the government is showing that it has a will of its own and that it acts in the interests of other parties.

The policy of fluoridation originated in the U.S.A. in the 1940s. Many European countries have rejected this policy, knowing it was not about health but rather that it was the result of corrupt influences. For the New Zealand government to force this policy shows that they’re not interested in science or the natural rights of the people and worse, that the New Zealand government is caving to pressure from either American or UK interests.

Please understand that the irony of an American writing about corruption in government does not escape me. Educated Americans know all too well the workings and techniques of a dictatorship which presents itself as a democracy. It is as a result of the extreme corruption of the leadership of Western countries that we look to New Zealand and still see it to be a land of free individuals who can run their local communities as they like.

If the New Zealand federal government goes ahead with this decision, I personally will not visit New Zealand in the future. If any of my friends or clients discuss the possibility of travelling to New Zealand, I will do my best to dissuade them. Potential visitors to New Zealand should know that all is not well in paradise and that behind the scenes you have the same dictatorship we see in the West. Despite all its physical beauty I still contend that the best part about New Zealand is its people. If the people of New Zealand are forced to stand in the shadow cast by a dictatorial federal government, something vital and essential will have been lost.


Michael Blanshan

Thank you, Michael.

Thank you, Fluoride Free NZ, for showing the way.

I keep hearing this thing called the Internet is a wonderful apparatus with many uses. Well, here’s one.

Joyce Riley: "Week of APRIL 25 - APRIL 29, 2016:
MONDAY - APRIL 25, 2016: Vaxxed Film Special

Outspoken autism advocate and founder of the not-for-profit Autism Trust in the UK and US, POLLY TOMMEY, joins The Power Hour this morning to share her story which is featured in the brand new film Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe. Polly is also a producer on this film.

Vaxxed film director DR. ANDREW WAKEFIELD also joins Joyce on The Power Hour this morning. Dr. Wakefield is well know for investigating a possible role between gastrointestinal issues, the MMR vaccine, and neurological injury in children. He came under attack by freelance journalist Brian Deer, which has made him one of the most controversial figures in the history of Medicine. Wakefield now resides in Austin, Texas, where he has co-founded the Autism Media Channel with Polly Tommey with the goal of countering the pharmaceutical marketing and advertising juggernaut and the biased corporate-owned media with their own media. Together they produced the award-winning documentary, Who Killed Alex Spourdalkis, which was Wakefield’s directorial debut.

Current Harvard Mumps Outbreak Occurs In 99 Percent Vaccinated

14082619167_21b2aa6903_zWho says vaccines are effective? Oh, that’s Big Pharma’s and the U.S. CDC/FDA’s shtick, whereas in reality, things are grossly different.
According to Boston.com [1], over the last two months forty members of the student body have contracted mumps while
A month ago, the department determined that all infected students to that point had received a mumps vaccine prior to contracting the infection, and that 99 percent of undergraduate students at the college had met the state’s immunization requirements. [1]
What’s gone wrong? Why aren’t vaccines, the legally-untouchable ‘holy cows’ of allopathic medicine, doing what they’re supposed to and mandated for, i.e., producing ‘herd immunity’? It looks like Harvard has a sick herd on its hands!
Can it be that those vaccinees were vaccinated with an MMR vaccine that had its efficacy ratings for the mumps active fudged [fraud?] for ten long years, as per two Merck whistleblowers’ lawsuit in Federal Court in Philadelphia? [2,3]
Harvard students aren’t alone — during the time of the school’s outbreak, Massachusetts had already confirmed 12 cases of mumps across the state this year, including UMass Boston two confirmed cases in March at UMass Boston and one case in February at Bentley University in Waltham. [1]
There’s nothing more to prove a point than “the more the merrier,” particularly when those who received their state-required school vaccinations now suffer in disbelief that vaccines really are not effective.

The real shocker eventually comes, though, when other vaccine-preventable diseases start making the rounds of day care centers, kindergartens, grade schools, high schools, colleges, and universities. All those baby shots and boosters students received during childhood [4,] apparently have hobbled their immune systems. God only knows how they will be able to cope and handle what once were considered “childhood communicable diseases.”

May we have a statement on the treatment by the House of public petitions that attract a large number of signatures? As the Leader of the House knows, there will be a debate on 9 May about the petition to stop the Government spending public money on pro-remain propaganda in the EU referendum. As of a few moments ago, 217,072 people had signed the petition, but the debate on it, like others of a similar nature, will be held in Westminster Hall, where no vote can be held. Should it not be possible for the Backbench Business Committee to hold such debates in the main Chamber? Otherwise, petitioners will be disappointed to find that, although their concerns are debated, the House is unable to vote on them.

Canada - Council vote will be razor-thin when it comes to fluoride

Like the rest of you city council continues to be as divided as the Capulets and the Montagues when it comes to fluoridating Cornwall water.
And not unlike another tragedy, it appears a razor-thin majority at the council table will vote to see fluoride returned to the water supply.
I've railed against fluoride in our water, in large part because workers at the filtration plant shouldn't be exposed to it, and the $350,000 price tag attached to system upgrades is too much when one considers that most of the additives in the water end up right back in the St. Lawrence River before passing through our bodies. The way council intends to vote on this issue is becoming clearer as time unfolds – and those of us against water fluoridation had best be prepared for disappointment.
Based on the comments made Monday night, it's fair to suggest Councillors Andre Rivette, Elaine MacDonald, Denis Carr and perhaps even Bernadette Clement are in favour putting fluoride back. Clement wasn't nearly as passionate as some of her other colleagues, but the way she was talking Monday night it's fair to suggest she's leaning towards fluoride.
On the flipside are Councillors Claude McIntosh, David Murphy, Justin Towndale and Mayor Leslie O'Shaughnessy who are against the practice. Undecideds/unknowns include Councillors Maurice Dupelle, Carilyne Hebert and Mark MacDonald. But based on the scuttlebutt I am hearing from city hall, it's likely those on the fence will vote fluoride – though I hope they don't.
I floated the idea a couple of weeks ago of going the route of a referendum at the next municipal election, but there's not enough support around the council table for such a move – which means sometime next month, likely the first meeting of May, councillors will vote to finally put this issue to rest.
Towndale is now on an extended leave for the next three months while he trains to become a member of the Canadian Forces, so consider that a lost vote on the 'no' side and an even tougher chore for those against fluoride.
WHERE'S THE UNION?: The union representing employees at the water filtration plant had requested time before council to lay out their objections to fluoridation. Union members are especially fearful of the hydrofluorosilicic acid that is added to our water to create fluoride. The acid is extremely toxic and has left scars on the concrete at the filtration plant where it has, on occasion, accidentally spilled.
The union was told it would not be allowed to address council – likely because the city wants to avoid setting a precedent that would allow other employee groups to make similar pleas if they feel slighted. It says here if the union is serious about this, then members need to take their message to the people. Protests and information sessions need to be organized.
And while we're on the subject of unions and employees, it surprises me that more councillors with an NDP affiliation aren't stepping up to protect those workers by voting against fluoride.

Fluoride plays role in lead leach

In your editorial, “The lead lurking in our water,” and in the recent overwhelming media coverage about lead in our drinking water, I find no mention of the role fluoride plays in this process. In controlled laboratory experiments fluoride combined with chlorine increased the leaching of lead from pipes and fittings used in plumbing (Maas RP et al. 2007).
The vast majority of the drinking water supplied to Snohomish County residents has both of these chemicals added. You may remember that the city of Everett, the supplier of water to most of Snohomish County, had to shut down its fluoride adding process for a number of days not too long ago to repair the extensive damage done to their system by the chemicals it was adding to the water.
Most countries do not add fluoride to their water. China is one of those countries. What do they do with their industrial waste called fluoride? They sell it to us.

New Zealand plans to drown its citizens in toxic fluorides Apr 28

New Zealand plans to drown its citizens in toxic fluorides
by Jon Rappoport
April 28, 2016
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrixclick here.)
“Oh, I love New Zealand. It’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It’s…what? What did you say?…No, that’s impossible. That couldn’t be happening. They’re doing what??”
The strategy of the New Zealand government is simple.
A series of local movements is successful. So kill them off by claiming decision-making must occur at a “higher level.” Take power out of the hands of locals.
The people can’t represent themselves. That’s dangerous. No, big government will represent the people—by squashing what the people want.
The issue is fluorides. I recently wrote two articles demonstrating the extreme toxicity of this substance, which of course is dumped in water supplies as a medical treatment. (fluoride archive here).
In New Zealand, a group called Fluoride Free NZ has been highly successful working with town councils to ban fluorides from local communities.
But these successes are a threat, because they contradict the lies medical authorities spew about how safe fluorides are, and because grass-roots victories erode blind faith in centralized government.
Here are quotes from Kane Titchener, who represents the group, Fluoride Free NZ, in New Zealand. His remarks lay out what’s happening behind the scenes in that natural paradise:
“…the fluoridation issue has been brought to a head. The NZ Government is proposing that the [bigger] District Health Boards take over the decision making [about] fluoridation [in water supplies] as opposed to the local councils. This is because we have been very good at winning at the local council level.”
“Fluoride Free NZ was formed in 2003. Since that time we have had many substantial victories in local Councils throughout New Zealand. Local Councils that have stopped [fluoridating water supplies] as a result of Fluoride Free NZ’s lobbying efforts: New Plymouth; Taumarunui; Waipukurau; Far North…”
“In summary, the Government is planning to implement mandatory fluoridation to the whole of New Zealand. Currently, only around 50% of households are on fluoridated water, with only 23 out of 67 local councils still fluoridating, while voicing their growing concerns about fluoridation risks and dangers. In response to more and more councillors and mayors deciding against fluoridation, the Government is now taking the decision away from local councils and communities and putting the power into the hands of District Health Boards (DHB), who are under the direct control of Central Government.”
If you think Fluoride Free NZ’s successes working with town councils is a walk in the park, think again. This group has scored victories against long odds. This group is smart, dedicated, and effective.
They represent what can happen when strong, clear-sighted, creative individuals band together to accomplish a righteous goal.
And the tyrannical response of big government is predictable.
However, there is going to be blowback against that government in New Zealand.
The degree and power of the blowback is going to depend, in part, on the response of people around the world who become aware of the situation and make their voices heard.
Contact Fluoride Free NZ. Help them. Spread their press releases all over the world.
Why should a government be permitted to dump poison into the water and call it medical treatment?
And having called it medical treatment, by what power can a government mandate it for all citizens without informed consent, without the explicit permission of those millions of patients? Yes, patients, because that’s what they are. They’re being treated every day.
By what power can this happen? Dictatorship calling itself democracy.

exit from the matrix

A note to tourists: how do you feel about traveling to New Zealand and bathing in, and drinking, poison? Do you like that bonus for spending your good money in “paradise?”
If not, you might want to contact the New Zealand tourism authority (newzealand.com) and let them know about your change of plans.
Such organizations are always interested in money, where it’s coming from—and where it won’t be coming from.

Welcome to the campaign to have Western Australia's drinking water Fluoride Free

Imagine a place where the state mass medicates the population with a scientifically proven toxin that itself is a freely acknowledged waste product of heavy industry. This mass medication takes place irrespective of citizens health needs, is arbitrary in its administration, and is enforced without any democratic consensus or independent scrutiny. In addition this mass medication costs taxpayers tens of millions of dollars a year, and yet 99.9% of its output never hits its intended target.
Welcome to Western Australia in 2015. After 49 years of unquestioning acquiescence to to this illogical dogma it is time for WA's citizens to take back ownership of our most precious resource - our water supply.

England - School pupils to get lessons on brushing their teeth from dentists

Dentists are having to go into Lincolnshire schools to teach children how to brush their teeth.
They are being sent in after the revelation by Lincolnshire Community Health that more than 300 children across the county had to be put under general anaesthetic last year to have rotten teeth removed.
Teachers, dentists and community health services are working to educate parents and children against all the dangers that can lead to that stage.
Senior specialist dental nurse Emma Fletcher said: "It's very shocking. General anaesthetic is something we want to avoid especially in children for something that is a preventable disease."
Dentists only put children under anaesthetic as a last resort but fear parents aren't aware of the dangers of problems reaching that stage.

Twenty independent dental practices have now signed up to 'adopt' and visit a school in their area so far including Lincoln, Sleaford, Boston, Horncastle and Grantham.The dental team delivers a Better Oral Health workshop and set up racks for toothbrushes and a system for reception children to learn how to brush their teeth.She explained that children from the age of six can use adult toothpaste which should contain a fluoride level of 1,450 parts per million.Emma Fletcher said: "A lot of children don't like minty toothpaste. They complain they won't use it because it's minty."Supermarkets particularly do offer flavoured toothpastes and as long as they contain the 1,450 ppm of fluoride that's absolutely fine."It's especially important for these children that their brushing and their diet is up to scratch as they're probably more at risk.

Gina Hargrave, from the Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, said: "This is a great way for children and their parents to understand how brushing teeth every day with a fluoride toothpaste helps to protect teeth from tooth decay."Prevention is so much better than cure. Working together with parents, schools and local dental practices we can make sure that children in Lincolnshire have something to smile about."She is now training dental staff on how to promote oral health to five year olds as part of the scheme.

Charlotte Hickerton, head teacher at St Peter at Gowts Primary School in Lincoln said: "The project is a fantastic idea to promote kids' dental hygiene amongst our children and families."We think it will benefit the children so much by starting this routine so early on in their reception class."It's going to be very easy, just five minutes a day after they have had their dinner, then hopefully they'll set up that routine for the rest of their lives."

“Fluorides, the Atomic bomb, and a spy” by Jon Rappoport

April 27, 2016 (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrixclick here.)

In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was so chilling it had to be told.

The Christian Science Monitor, who had assigned the story, never published it.

Their ensuing article, “Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” has been posted on websites, sometimes with distortions, deletions, or additions. I spoke with Griffiths, and he told me to be careful I was reading a correct copy of his piece. (You can find it—“Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” at fluoridealert.org.)

Griffiths also told me that researchers who study the effects of fluorides by homing in on communities with fluoridated drinking water, versus communities with unfluoridated water, miss a major point: fluorides are everywhere—they are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of drugs, and also in many other industries (e.g., aluminum, pesticide)

I want to go over some of the major points of the Griffiths-Bryson article.

Griffiths discovered hundreds of documents from the World War 2 era. These included papers from the Manhattan Project, which was launched to build the first A-bomb.

Griffiths/Bryson write: “Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production…millions of tons…were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War.”

The documents reveal that fluoride was the most significant health hazard in the US A-bomb program, for workers and for communities around the manufacturing facilities.

Griffiths/Bryson: “Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide ‘evidence useful in litigation’ [against persons who had been poisoned by fluoride and would sue for damages]… The first lawsuits against the US A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the [government] documents show.”

So A-bomb scientists were told they had to do studies which would conclude that fluorides were safe.

The most wide-reaching study done was carried out in Newburgh, New York, between 1945 and 1956. This was a secret op called “Program F.” The researchers obtained blood and tissue samples from people who lived in Newburgh, through the good offices of the NY State Health Department.

Griffiths/Bryson found the original and secret version of this study. Comparing it to a different sanitized version, the reporters saw that evidence of adverse effects from fluorides had been suppressed by the US Atomic Energy Commission.

Other studies during the same period were conducted at the University of Rochester. Unwitting hospital patients were given fluorides to test out the results.

Flash forward. Enter Dr. Phyllis Mullenix (see also here), the head of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston. In the 1990s, Mullenix did a series of animal studies which showed that, as Griffiths/Bryson write: “…fluoride was a powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin…”

Mullenix applied for further grant monies from the National Institutes of Health. She was turned down. She was also told that fluorides do not have an effect on the CNS.

But Griffiths/Bryson uncovered a 1944 Manhattan Project memo which states: “Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect…it seems most likely that the F [fluoride] component rather than the [uranium] is the causative factor.”

The 1944 memo was sent to the head of the Manhattan Project Medical Section, Colonel Stafford Warren. Warren was asked to give his okay to do animal studies on fluorides’ effects on the CNS. He immediately did give his approval.

But any records of the results of this approved project are missing. Most likely classified.

Who was the man who made that 1944 proposal for a rush-program to study the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge, who worked at the Manhattan Project.

Who was brought in to advise Mullenix 50 years later at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, as she studied the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge.

Who never told Mullenix of his work on fluoride toxicity for the Manhattan Project? Dr. Harold Hodge.

Was Hodge brought in to look over Mullenix’s shoulder and report on her discoveries? It turns out that Hodge, back in the 1940s, had made suggestions to do effective PR promoting fluoride as a dental treatment. So his presence by Mullenix’s side, all those years later, was quite possibly as an agent assigned to keep track of her efforts.

Getting the idea here? Build an A-bomb. Forget the toxic fluoride consequences. Bury the fluoride studies. Twist the studies.

More on Hodge. In 1944, “a severe pollution incident” occurred in New Jersey, near the Du Pont plant in Deepwater where the company was trying to build the first A-bomb. A fluoride incident. Farmers’ peach and tomato crops were destroyed. Horses and cows became crippled. Some cows had to graze on their bellies. Tomato crops (normally sold to the Campbell company for soups) were contaminated with fluorides.

The people of the Manhattan Project were terrified of lawsuits and ensuing revelations about the toxic nature of their work. A heads-up memo was written on the subject. Its author? Harold Hodge. Among other issues, he reported on the huge fluoride content in vegetables growing in the polluted area.

Also the high fluoride levels in human blood.

The farmers began to bring lawsuits. Big PR problem.

The lawsuits were settled quietly, for pittances.

Harold Hodge wrote another memo. Get this quote: “Would there be any use in making attempts to counteract the local fear of fluoride on the part of residents [near the A-bomb facility]…through lectures on F [fluoride] toxicology and perhaps the usefulness of F in tooth health?”

Griffiths/Bryson write: “Such lectures were indeed given, not only to New Jersey citizens but to the rest of the nation throughout the Cold War.”

This was a launching pad for fluorides as “successful dental treatments.”

In the film, Dr. Strangelove, Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper rails about the destruction fluorides are wreaking on the “pure blood of pure Americans.” Of course, this character is fleshed out as some kind of far-right-wing fanatic. How odd that he and other military men in the movie are, in fact, ready and willing to start a nuclear war. Odd because, unknown to the Strangelove script writer, fluorides were, in fact, very toxic and were an integral part of the very program that created atomic bombs.

For decades, fluoridation of drinking water has been recognized as a achievement in Public Health interventions. According to the CDC water fluoridation remains the most equitable and cost-effective method of delivering fluoride to all members of most communities, regardless of age, educational attainment, or income level.

The ethics of Public Health interventions include principles such as, justice, beneficence, and respect for autonomy. In recent years, there has been debate on whether or not the fluoridation of water violates these principles.

This video explores these ethical issues; it is intended to educate viewers on the ethics of water fluoridation through information of which many people are unaware of.

NZ - Concerns raised at health board meeting over monitoring of fluoride levels in Nelson

Discussions continue about the possibility of water fluoridation in Nelson.Concerns about water fluoridation in Nelson were raised at a health board meeting following the Government's decision to hand over the responsibility to district health boards.

Nelson Marlborough District Health Board member Judy Crowe questioned how the dosage would be monitored to prevent people from ingesting toxic levels of fluoride if it was added to the water supply.

Earlier this month the NMDHB welcomed Government plans to transfer decision-making powers for fluoridating water supplies away from local authorities. "In 1954 when fluoride was first introduced in the water supply in the city of Hastings there was no legislation in the form of health and safety as we know it today, so my question is how would this DHB set fluoride guidelines," Crowe asked the board.Bottle-fed infants, children under 8 years-old, people with impaired kidney function and those who drink a lot of fluoridated water and others with high fluoride intake from other sources such as diet and toothpaste were mentioned as some of those who would be at risk.

Crowe's questions arose from reading the international critique of the New Zealand Fluoridation Report of 2014 which raised concerns about the report being unjustifiably complacent about risks.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Nick Baker said it was important that these concerns were addressed as they would also be raised by others in the community. He said typically, people should get fluoride from no more than two sources.If fluoride was added to the water supply, it would be suggested that children use a low-fluoride toothpaste. Currently the DHB recommends children use a high-fluoride toothpaste to prevent tooth decay.The Ministry of Health guidelines recommend the adjustment of fluoride to between 0.7 and 1.0 parts per million in drinking water as the most effective and efficient way of preventing dental caries."Every $1 we spend on fluoridate in drinking water we can save $88 on dental care which is a very good reason for our community to have fluoridated water," Baker said.

Fluoride Free Nelson spokeswoman Sara Cooper said the group were pleased that a member of the board was asking important questions about fluoridation.
"It is such a relief to have someone questioning this that will be listened to as Fluoride Free Nelson have been shut out of any meaningful discussions with the DHB and all promises of public meetings and communication on joint health ventures appear to be fob offs."

Despite promises of community engagement from the DHB in the last six months, Cooper said Fluoride Free Nelson and concerned members of the public had not been given an opportunity to do so. It appeared that the board did not want community input that differed from their stance, she said.
Cooper said while the Nelson City Councillors were reachable by members of the public, health board members were not and she questioned how they could be responsible to the community when people couldn't communicate with them.

Chief executive Chris Fleming said the board had adopted a position statement on fluoridation in August before the legislation was introduced to shift the responsibility onto district health boards.

The statement endorsed community water fluoridation as an important public health measure to maintain good oral health, the prevention of tooth decay and the reduction of health inequalities.

"We don't monitor and report every article about everything we have a position statement on. I don't think we should be singling out fluoride like we don't single out new evidence on alcohol or smoking, apart from when we are asking the board to make a decision," Fleming said.

Crowe said that the international critique of the New Zealand Fluoridation Report of 2014 was not new evidence and should have been included when the board formed their position statement.

"We had a very pro-response in what we were presented with information-wise and I don't believe we have been given a fair hearing."

She said board members should have a right to rethink their position and that counter-evidence for water fluoridation should have been presented to the board before making a position statement.
