UK Against Fluoridation

F.A.N. Newsletter

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste*

We need you to be part of our winning team.
So far, we have raised $26,654 from 174 donors for our lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Thank you so very much to everyone who has contributed.
We need to raise $75,000 by May 31st to be eligible for $150,000 in matching grants! All donations are tax-exempt as Fluoride Action Network is a project of the American Environmental Health Studies Project, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit. All donations will go into a designated legal fund. See details below on how to make your donation.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste*
The following is from a review of our Citizens Petition under the Toxic Control Substances Act
Available evidence suggests that the following are all associated with IQ reductions:
1.     Daily fluoride doses
2.     Urine fluoride levels
3.     Serum fluoride levels, and
4.     Dental fluorosis levels
The 2017 US government-funded Bashash study certainly highlighted the importance of urine fluoride levels. Note this study followed 300 mother-child pairs and found that urine fluoride levels in the mothers - corresponding to fluoride levels experienced by adults in fluoridated communities in the USA-  was associated with a 6 IQ point loss in their offspring.
Each of these four metrics of fluoride exposure provide a more direct assessment of individual fluoride exposure than water fluoride concentration and are thus more probative for risk assessment purposes.
In the study by Wang et al. the authors found a clear dose response relationship between daily fluoride dose and reduced IQ. When this data was quantified using standard techniques Hirzy et al. (2016) it showed that a dose of 1.4 mg/day lowered IQ by 5 IQ points. While the precise extent to which fluoridation is reducing IQ in the U.S. cannot yet be calculated, the dose-response data from Wang et al. (2012) (i.e. a dose of 1.4mg/day lowered IQ by 5 IQ points) using a simple linear extrapolation indicates that daily consumption of one liter of fluoridated water per day during childhood (at a recommended concentration of 0.7ppm would yield a dose of = 0.7mg F/day) would cause IQ to drop by an average of 2.5 points when compared to children with no exposure to fluoride, while consumption of half a liter per day (= 0.35 mg F/day) would cause IQ to drop by an average of 1.25 IQ points.
The Economic Cost of One IQ Point.
To prevail in our TSCA lawsuit we have to show that fluoride in drinking water presents an "unreasonable neurotoxic risk" at current exposure levels. As far as the "reasonableness" discussion is concerned the EPA considers the benefits of reducing the risk with the costs of doing so. In considering these respective benefits and costs of risk reduction, EPA has stated it will take into account “the extent and magnitude of risk posed; the societal consequences of removing or restricting use of products; availability and potential hazards of substitutes, and impacts on industry, employment, and international trade. (Federal Register, Feb 27, 2017; see 8. Consequences of eliminating use of fluoridation chemicals.)
There is little question that neurotoxicity is a serious insult to health. In a nation besieged by neurological disorders of poorly understood etiology, both in young children and the elderly, minimizing exposures to known neurotoxic substances should be a public health priority.  Because of the massive extent of exposure to fluoridation chemicals in the U.S., even small effects on IQ will have very substantial economic consequences.
Studies have shown that even a loss of a single IQ point causes an average drop in lifetime earnings of $22,250 in current dollars. Since 200 million Americans now live in areas where water is fluoridated, and since virtually all Americans consume processed foods and beverages made with fluoridated water, any reduction in IQ from consumption of fluoride-treated water stands to have very large economic consequences.
In 2010, there were 74.2 million children under the age of 18 living in the U.S., of which we can estimate roughly 50 million were living in fluoridated areas. If we apply Wang’s dose-response data and assume that these 50 million children consumed between 0.5 to 1 liters of fluoridated water per day during childhood, fluoridation would have caused a loss of between 62.5 to 125 million IQ points, resulting in a total loss in lifetime earnings of between $13.9 to 27.8 trillion for this generation. 
Due to the sheer number of people exposed to fluoridation chemicals, even if only sentinel or susceptible populations in fluoridated areas suffer IQ loss, the economic impacts will still be substantial. For example, even if we conservatively assume that only 1 to 5% of children in a fluoridated area suffer any IQ loss, and even if this IQ loss averaged just 1 IQ point, this would still amount to 500,000 to 2,500,000 lost IQ points, with a total loss in lifetime earnings ranging from $11.1 billion to $55.6 billion for this generation alone.
The Campaign to Warn Pregnant Women Not to Drink Fluoridated Water
The campaign is gearing up. We need as many groups and individuals from across the U.S. involved in this. We will be reporting back to you in the next bulletin on the campaign materials we are preparing (e.g. leaflets, sample letters, posters, etc).  Meanwhile, please warn any pregnant women and women of child-bearing age you know to avoid fluoridated water.

Tooth decay the number one reason for child hospital admissions in NI

Tooth decay the number one reason for child hospital admissions in NI, says British Dental Association
BDA says preventable tooth decay is costing taxpayers millions of pounds per year

More than 5,000 children had almost 23,000 teeth taken out in Northern Ireland hospitals last year, figures show.

The statistic emerged as the British Dental Association Northern Ireland called for more to be done to tackle the region’s oral health - which they say is the worst in the UK.

And the body, that represents local dentists, says preventable tooth decay is costing taxpayers millions of pounds per year. The BDA has thrown its weight behind calls for “root and branch reform of oral health strategy”.

They say “new analysis shows extractions of multiple teeth among under-18s could be costing the health service over £9million a year”.

A spokesman added: “Tooth decay is the number one reason for child hospital admissions in NI. 5,122 children were admitted to hospital last year for removal of 22,699 teeth. Based on official data the BDA estimate the procedures - which took place under general anaesthetic - cost the service in the region of £9,347,650.”

Fruit teas and hot water with lemon are all bad for your teeth
The BDA says they “warmly welcomed calls from MLA Roy Beggs for authorities to revisit their approach to oral health strategy across NI, and to learn vital lessons from the dedicated programmes in Scotland and Wales that are securing transformative improvements in children’s oral health”.

They say the Scottish Childsmile initiative, which offers advice on looking after children’s teeth from birth up to 12, has reportedly reduced dental treatment costs by £5million a year, through “outreach in schools and nurseries”...........................

Daily Mail

You don't need toothpaste, put your brush in the dishwasher and, yes, electric is best! The jaw-dropping truth about YOUR toothbrush.

  • 25% of adults don’t brush their teeth twice daily, say the Oral Health Foundation
  • Unsurprisingly, nearly three quarters of us have visible plaque in our mouths
  • Gum disease has also been linked to health problems, including heart disease 
Two minutes, twice a day — it’s a simple message that’s drummed into us from an early age. But the latest figures suggest many of us still don’t brush properly and our teeth and gums are suffering serious damage as a result.
One in four adults admits they don’t brush their teeth twice a day, according to the charity the Oral Health Foundation. Unsurprisingly, nearly 70 per cent of us have visible plaque — a build-up of bacteria and debris which is a chief cause of tooth decay.
And even if you do try to look after your teeth, how should you do it and what should you use? Last week Swiss researchers who analysed the effectiveness of certain toothpastes found some no more effective than saliva when it comes to preventing dental erosion. 
This is when the tooth’s outer hard enamel coating is lost, exposing the dentine, which contains nerves, and leads to tooth sensitivity and pain........

Australia - Fluoridation petition signatures lacking

Water worries: The Kentish Council are hosting a petition in regards to the Fluoridation Act 1968, the petition is lacking in signitures. Picture: Files
 Water worries: The Kentish Council are hosting a petition in regards to the Fluoridation Act 1968, the petition is lacking in signitures. Picture: Files
You can count on one hand the number of signatures a petition at the Kentish Council has received. The petition relates to the Fluoridation Act 1968, it states that the act ‘does not provide for prevention of dental caries but in fact provides for impairment of health.’
The petition is addressed to the speaker and members of The House of Assembly. 
Mayor Don Thwaites was the only councilor who voted against the motion. I think there are two reasons people aren’t signing it, the first being they know signing a petition wont change anything,” he said. 
“The second being the fact they are comfortable with fluoride in their water.” 
Councillor Thwaites also noted a large percentage of the population don’t receive the town’s water supply.

Fluoride Literally Turns the Pineal Gland to Stone, Research Suggests

The pineal gland has been known as the 'seat of soul' for hundreds of years. Could fluoride, a ubiquitous vector of toxicity in the modern world, actually be calcifying this gland and literally turning it to stone? 

The Discovery

Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavares were dissected and their pineal glands assayed:
 "There was a positive correlation between pineal F[luoride] and pineal Ca[lcium] (r = 0.73, p<0.02) but no correlation between pineal F and bone F. By old age, the pineal gland has readily accumulated F and its F/Ca ratio is higher than bone."
This is the not the first research to implicate fluoride in contributing to so-called ectopic calcification, or the calcification of soft tissue. We address this in a previous report on the potential for fluoride to calcifiy the arteries. ........................

Published on 15 Mar 2018

In 2018 im still in disbelief that this piece of legislation exists. Legislation that states that our water supplier is allowed to dump and deliver a toxic environmental pollutant into our water and call it "Water Fluoridation." The Health Department states that it's a cost effective treatment for prevention of tooth decay. If you follow the money I think its cost effective for heavy industry to dump their waste by-product back into the environment. This archaic legislation belongs back in the days when doctors promoted cigarettes, lead in fuel was fine, asbestos was a great building material and DDT was sprayed willy nilly. Oh and government, wise ol' government perhaps we have a sugar crisis on our hands, not a.... "not enough fluoride in the water." You're adding a freaking neurotoxin to our drinking water you peanuts

Tooth decay four times higher in deprived areas of Sheffield

Councillors will consider an update on tooth decay in SheffieldChildren in some deprived areas of the city have four times more tooth decay than youngsters in other parts. A Sheffield Council report into oral and dental health revealed that inequality persists in levels of child tooth decay across the city, with a fourfold difference between areas with the highest and lowest levels, and there is a 'clear link' between deprivation and levels of tooth decay. There are also calls for the local authority to consider water fluoridation - the control addition of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth decay. 

A report to the council's health communities and adult social care scrutiny and policy development committee, said it was 12 years since the council debated water fluoridation and officers are talking to Public Health England about a new review into it.

Councillors looked into oral and dental health in Sheffield last year and made several recommendations. They will meet on Wednesday to discuss responses from NHS England and the director of Public Health. The report by Debbie Hanson, health improvement principal for Public Health at Sheffield Council, said: "Despite all the hard work that goes into oral health promotion, inequality persists in levels of child tooth decay across the city, with a fourfold difference between areas with the highest and lowest levels.

"There is also a clear link between deprivation and levels of child tooth decay. "The report presented to the committee clearly indicated the importance of increasing children's exposure to fluoride in fighting decay, and the effectiveness of water fluoridation in ensuring all children benefit from fluoride."

Never ends! Fluoridation fluoridation.
Always deprived communities. Why not increase their well being by educational, economic and spiritual means not just focus on their children's teeth.

Tennessee bill HB675 dies in a low-level panel in Nashville. It would have required full reporting on contents of fluoride liquid or powder put into drinking water supplies.

USA - Fluoride in city water supply sparks concerns

MARQUETTE — Health issues concerning the fluoridation of the city’s water were addressed by two Marquette residents Monday evening at the Marquette City Commission meeting.

During public comment, Melissa Brandt and Wellness Centre of Marquette Director Valerie Olson cited scientific articles and explained why they both believe the city should reconsider fluoridating its water supply system.

Fluoride is a corrosive pale yellow gas that’s highly reactive and found in soil, air, food and water. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, community water fluoridation has been identified as the most cost-effective method of delivering fluoride to all, reducing tooth decay by 25 percent in children and adults.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends a level of .7 milligrams per liter of fluoride in drinking water, which is the amount Marquette incorporates into its system to prevent tooth decay.

Although the additive is commonly associated with preventative measures, Olson said newer studies claim that fluoride is harmful when ingested over a period of time.

Olson, who initially addressed the commission at its Feb. 12 meeting, said she encourages her clients to drink water that’s “free of fluoride” because of its many “negative effects on the human body.”

“Since we can have a benefit to the teeth with topical application without the necessity of ingesting fluorosilicic acid, which has never had even one safety study done long-term to prove safety for ingestion by our children, our infants, pregnant women — to whom we know the fluoride passes through the placenta to the fetus — that’s not even disputable,” Olson said, adding that fluoride has never been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

A recent study conducted by the National Research Council for the Environmental Protective Agency identified a number of potential adverse effects from ingesting fluoride including cognitive impairment, hypothyroidism, dental and skeletal fluorisis, enzyme and electrolyte derangement and cancer.

Brandt, who was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder four years ago, said she doesn’t drink fluoridated water because of the correlation.

“I’ve chosen to stop drinking fluoridated water because I have researched and have found a lot of evidence that supports that fluoride can interfere with thyroid function,” Brandt said. “Currently I’m having to fill up jugs of water at my parents house in Harvey, which is extremely inconvenient because I moved to Marquette recently and so as a resident of Marquette I don’t feel like I should be doing that, I feel like I should have a choice.”

Mayor Dave Campana, who spent decades as a pharmacist, said he supports fluoride in a municipal water system 100 percent because it does the public a huge favor by preventing dental decay.

“I’ve worked 38 years as a pharmacist, more than 30 of them in Marquette County, eight years on west end in Ishpeming and the rest here in Marquette. I got to know every single dentist in the county and beyond that … and the prescribing habits,” Campana said at a February meeting. “In all this time I’ve never met or experienced a dentist that is anti-fluoride. In fact, they strongly advocated the presence of fluoridated water to prevent dental caries and growth of good enamel.”

Campana said people who grew up drinking well water were prescribed fluoride drops, chewables or tablets, and pregnant women, who also went without fluoridated water, were almost always given fluoride tabs by the OB/GYN doctors in the area.

“I believe fluoride in our drinking water is safe and effective and I believe the city is doing a great service to the community by providing this. We provide this at a cost of, I think, $20,000 or more a year. It’s cheap, preventive medicine,” Campana said. “It’s constantly monitored so there’s no over-supply of fluoride in the water. I have read studies by the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization and they are totally in favor of fluoride supplementation.”

According to the CDC, the U.S. has a national goal for 80 percent of Americans to have water with enough fluoride to prevent tooth decay by 2020 because of “beneficial purposes.”

"In all this time I’ve never met or experienced a dentist that is anti-fluoride."
I expect he was so pro fluoride they didn't dare voice their own views.
In the struggle to stop fluoridation just in Southampton I met two dentists who were totally against it. Only one was brave enough to actively support us.

Update on our Fundraiser in our Law Suit against EPA:

We felt obligated to take a day off from fundraising so we could begin the campaign to warn pregnant women. We have raised $24,889.50 from 157 donors towards our goal of $75,000 by May 31st. Thank you to everyone who has donated. If you wish to donate today, please see the details here. It would be great to hit the $25,000 mark!
Help us get a warning to pregnant women about fluoride’s dangers to their unborn child
An appeal from Paul Connett, Senior Adviser to FAN
Even months after the event I wake up at night and worry. I can’t believe that the vast majority of citizens, doctors, dentists and scientists in the USA are blissfully unaware that on September 19, 2017, a U.S. government-funded 12-year study conducted by leading experts in the field, showed that there was a strong correlation between pre-natal exposure to fluoride and lowered IQ in children by 6 IQ points at current exposure levels experienced by pregnant women in the U.S.
This mother-child study titled Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico was published in the Sept 2017 issue of Environmental Health Perspectives, one of the most highly respected environmental health publications in the world. The study was funded by three U.S. government agencies: The National Institutes of Health; the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
At the population level a drop of 6 IQ points is extremely serious. It would half the number of very bright children (IQ greater than 130) and increase by over 50% the number of mentally handicapped (IQ less than 70).

This graphic is a simplified version of the graphic that appeared in the original mother-child study (Bashash, et al, 2017) and was prepared by FAN research director Chris Neurath.
I can’t think of any scientific reason why these agencies have not made a public statement about these serious findings and whythey have not made an effort to warn pregnant women about the potential that such a common practice as water fluoridation could be impacting their unborn children’s brains?
Nor can I think of any acceptable reasons why a government-study of this rigor and with such serious potential implications gets so little attention from major media outlets.
The sad reality is that the very people who need to hear about this story the most are not being told. So once again citizens and scientists like ourselves, who are aware of this study (and all the others that came before it), have to go out with our limited resources and do the job that government health agencies, the major media and professional bodies should be doing. Everyone needs to know about this study, but particularly pregnant women. That’s why… 
FAN is launching a new campaign and we need your help to make it work.
Parents and pregnant women need to know about this study and that it is the tip of the iceberg of a very large body of evidence that fluoride is neurotoxic. This includes over 300 biochemical, animal and human studies - and critically - 52 (out of 59) studies that have found an association between loss of IQ and higher fluoride exposure.
We must treat this information like the national emergency it is. We must protect the brains of our unborn children. This is our country’s most precious resource. So please help us in any way you can to get this -
Warning to Pregnant Women: Do Not Drink Fluoridated Water
• Please share this warning with every pregnant woman you know. 
• Also share this with friends and colleagues
• Please work within your community by forming a group (if you haven’t already done so) to strategize on the most effective ways to get this message out.
• Ask your City council to place a moratorium on fluoridation until this issue is settled.
• Write letters to the paper, put up posters in public spaces, hand out flyers.
• Make a formal appointment to meet with either your city health department or county health department. Request that they issue warnings to pregnant women through Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on the TV & radio and that they issue a news release. Carefully document their response.
• Make a formal request to address the board of your local WIC program as they specifically cater to pregnant women (see NYC WIC). Again, document their response.
• Email FAN’s campaign director Stuart Cooper for advice and help. Let him know that you are part of this campaign.
Can you think of any other ways we can get this important message to pregnant women? We need your help and we need your creativity. Can you design a poster, a billboard or a small advertisement for the local paper?


  • Write a Letter to the Editor
  • We will be making posters & flyers

  • We will make artwork available to those who want to make their own

Please stay tuned, there's more to come!

Hundreds of children in Plymouth suffering from rotting teeth

The NHS Change 4 Life campaign features a wide range of resources to help us moderate our sugar intake and lead healthier lives.Hundreds of children in Plymouth are having rotten teeth removed under general anaesthetic.

Last year more than 700 under-16 year olds went into Derriford Hospital, some as young as three.

Health experts and politicians say the disease is entirely preventable, but there are fears a shortage of NHS dentists is making the problem worse.........

USA - Letter: Fluoride isn't a solution, it is part of the problem

Letter: Fluoride isn't a solution, it is part of the problem

To the editor"

In response to Dr. Ronald Maitland's oped column regarding dental health care (Eagle, March 8), it is highly commendable that Dr. Maitland provides dental services to the poor and sad that these services are not available for so much of our population that is in dire need of dental care. However, artificially fluoridated water is not the answer to the problem and it's time that dentists who are experts in their field but who are not experts in toxicology or chemistry stop insisting that every citizen be medicated with a toxic drug every day of our lives from cradle to grave.

Fluoride is classified by the EPA as a neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor that affects the thyroid gland. We now know that fluoride crosses the placenta and lowers IQ in children. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) is a professional organization whose goal is education. IAOMT has a put out a position paper against water fluoridation that includes over 500 citations. You can read it here: https://iaomt.org/wp-content/uploads/IAOMT-Fluoride-Position-Paper.pdf. 

Most of the developed world has rejected water fluoridation for medical and ethical reasons, a decision supported by Nobel Prize-winning scientists, thousands of medical and scientific professionals and key leaders in the environmental health community. Claiming that fluoridation works is disingenuous. Most of the developed world does not fluoridate, including 97 percent of Western Europe where the rate of tooth decay is no worse than ours. It's time to do what works, give children good nutrition, educate them and their parents about oral health care and give families access to affordable dental care. Fluoridation is an ongoing failed experiment that belongs on the trash heap. That's obvious by the fact that fluoride has been in the drinking water for 70-plus years while the dental crisis alarm continues to sound.

Improving the oral health of children is a priority for this Government.

Alongside local authorities’ duties to improve health, including oral health, Public Health England is leading a wide ranging multi agency programme focussing on improving children’s oral health. They have established a Child Health Improvement Programme Board which supports evidenced based actions that will increase the use of fluoride (toothpaste, varnish, water fluoridation). This is in addition to the childhood obesity plan which sets out measures that will reduce the amount of sugar children consume.

NHS England are leading the Starting Well programme which will work in 13 high needs areas to reach children most at risk of tooth decay who are not currently seeing a dentist. Alongside this NHS England is also developing a complementary Starting Well Core offer, a commissioning approach designed to facilitate increased access and early preventive care for young children. The offer will be made available during 2018, with commissioners making local decisions on use based on their assessment of need locally.

Nationally, NHS England and the Department are testing new ways of providing National Health Service dental care focussed on preventing future dental disease. The aim is to deliver a new contract which improves oral health whilst increasing dental access. An evaluation report covering the first full year of testing the prototype approach is due to be published shortly.

Sounds ominous more attempt for fluoridation?

The dark side of fluoride explored

Dr Robert C Dickson

In both Canada and Australia, pro-fluoridation advocates have had a field day, citing claims that seemingly support their position to fluoridate water. Many of those claims are misleading or erroneous and incorrect.
In the early to mid 1900s, dentists noticed several communities where people, and particularly children, had white and brown staining on their teeth and fewer cavities. Their water contained natural calcium fluoride, which is ubiquitous in the Earth’s crust. They concluded fluoride must be good for teeth.
Fast forward to WWII and the Manhattan Project. Large quantities of fluorine were essential to produce atomic weapons. Yet workers in these facilities, and plants and animals around them, were doing poorly, some even dying.
This created an unusual liaison between the military, medical and dental establishment, and the industries saddled with disposing of their highly toxic and regulated by-product, hydrofluosilicic acid (HFSA).
Their solution was to enlist the master spin doctor of the 20th century, Edward Bernays, whom the tobacco companies had hired prior to the war to convince women that smoking was good for them.
Within a very short time, studies were set up and cherry picked, and doctors and dentists bought into the new wave of ‘science’ – fluoride is good for kids! The sacred cow of water fluoridation was born.

The chemistry

There are essentially three types of fluoride: natural calcium fluoride, found in much of our rock and rivers and in most of the Earth’s crust; pharmaceutical-grade sodium fluoride that is in most toothpastes, fluoride rinses, prescriptions, and dental office treatments; and HFSA, the highly toxic waste product scrubbed out of industry stacks in the southern US, China and other parts of the world along with traces of lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic and other highly unsavoury and harmful toxins.
It is HFSA that is used to fluoridate water in virtually all jurisdictions in Australia, Canada, the US and NZ.
This is a huge boon to industry which, instead of paying dearly to dispose of this toxic by-product, now sells it to municipalities to dispose of in our water supply. It therefore ends up in our bodies, or flows unchecked into the environment after washing our cars and flushing our toilets – where it was not allowed originally by strict law.
The significance here is that natural calcium fluoride is tightly bound and therefore much less is released when ingested into the human body, whereas HFSA, which is ionised immediately, is absorbed quickly and easily in the gut, and crosses the blood-brain barrier, the placental barrier, and has access to virtually every cell, organ and system in the human body.

Ethics and morality

According to the United Nations, everyone has the right to clean, unmedicated water. Forcing mass medication on entire populations, without informed consent, and without monitoring, checking its levels in the human body, or studying short- or long-term effects, is the epitome of poor, unethical and unprofessional medicine.
Fluoride is a medication according to major health bodies worldwide, and strict control is required in dental offices and through physician prescriptions. And yet the collusion of industry and health associations, backed by huge corporations, has bypassed these checks and balances.
Health associations and organisations patronisingly attempt to assuage public concern by repeating their mantra of safety as they control concentrations of fluoride in our water.
These advocates never address the fact that dose, the amount of a drug consumed, and dosage, the amount of drug per kilogram of body weight, have little to do with concentration.
Therefore a 50kg woman who runs marathons and drinks ten glasses of fluoridated water daily gets ten times the dose as a sedentary office worker drinking only one glass per day.
No consent, no control of dose or dosage, no monitoring or follow-up – highly unethical in every sense and meaning of the word.

Where we are now

Byron Shire remains one of the few bastions of common sense and protectors of human rights in this country, as much of Australia has submitted to mass artificial water fluoridation.
Dentists, public health officials and many politicians, none of whom are toxicologists, continue to push for fluoridation when more than 97 per cent of communities in Europe, British Columbia and Quebec in Canada have eliminated this antiquated practice.
In fact, more than 5,000 professionals worldwide have had the courage to publicly call for an end to fluoridation and, of special note, less than six per cent of the world is fluoridated.
Interesting that Labor health critic Walt Secord speaks of  ‘a tiny group of conspiracy theorists’. We wonder if he also includes the 14 Nobel laureates in Medicine who are strongly opposed to this mass medication?
Well-intentioned fluoridation proponents such as Mr Secord say they’re helping children and the poor. Ironically, it’s infants, children, the underprivileged, the chronically ill, elderly and people of colour who are most susceptible to harm from, and the side effects of, fluoridation.

Medical error

Medical science has historically and frequently made errors. Medical and dental associations have endorsed smoking, asbestos, lead, BPA, mercury, thalidomide, Vioxx and many other dangerous products.
Just as they were wrong then, they’re wrong again, despite Mr Secord’s insinuation that it is ‘mind boggling that any group would oppose water fluoridation’. Indeed, it is beyond reason and common sense that more groups don’t, or won’t, oppose this enforced mass medication.
Fluoride, after all, is not necessary for any body function, unlike calcium, vitamins B and D, or iodine, which are essential to health; or chlorination, which kills organisms before they reach our bodies.Artificial water fluoridation is not safe, ethical or effective.

Is The Fluoride Killing us?

Have you heard something about this topic of fluoride in the drinking water? Im guessing you have heard that its made up or its fake. Well my friends, its not fake, its very real. And trust me when I say this podcast will change your life. "they" are putting chemicals in the water,"they" know what it does to the human body.

Daily Mail - Toothpaste alone does not prevent dental erosion

Toothpaste alone does not prevent dental erosion: Study reveals popular brands like Colgate or Sensodyne fail to stop enamel loss, so how does your favourite rank?

  • Enamel loss still occurs after brushing with nine toothpastes available in Europe
  • Blend-a-Med Pro Expert and Regenerate were found to be the least effective
  • Sensodyne Pronamel and Elmex Erosion Protection are as effective as saliva
  • Researchers believe brushing must be combined with a healthy lifestyle
  • Dental erosion occurs when the build up of acid breaks down teeth's hard tissue 
Toothpaste alone does not prevent dental erosion, new research suggests.
After analysing nine fluoridated toothpastes that are available throughout Europe, including Colgate Caries Protection and Sensodyne Rapid Relief, Swiss researchers found enamel loss still occurs to some extent despite regular brushing.
Although none of the toothpastes studied prevent dental erosion, Blend-a-Med Pro Expert and Regenerate were found to be the least effective, while Sensodyne Pronamel and Elmex Erosion Protection are no better than saliva.
The researchers believe toothpastes should be used as part of an oral-care regimen alongside dentists' advice and healthy lifestyles.
Dental erosion occurs when hard tissue is lost due to acidic break down combined with abrasive brushing or tongue movements.
Continuous erosion can expose the underlying dentine, which causes people to suffer sensitivity and pain. .....

What are Novichok nerve agents and did Russia do it?

By Alice Klein

Military personnel investigating the poisoning of Sergei Skripal on 11 March in SalisburyThe poison used to target ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury was a Novichok nerve agent, UK prime minister Theresa May revealed yesterday.

The chemical was identified by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down, May told the House of Commons.............

Detective work
Identifying the Novichok agent would have been a painstaking process, says Martin Boland at Charles Darwin University in Australia.

If someone shows signs of nerve agent poisoning, the first thing to do is to check for decreased acetylcholinesterase activity. This reveals if a nerve agent has bound to the enzyme.

Next, the specific nerve agent must be identified. A telltale sign of poisoning with sarin, for example, is unnaturally high blood levels of fluoride, which is used to make the nerve agent.

Because no standard test exists for Novichoks, defence officials may have taken fluid from the Skripals’ spinal cords, isolated the acetylcholinesterase enzyme, and analysed the structure of the nerve agent attached, says Boland. Western intelligence agencies probably have knowledge of the exact Novichok structures, allowing them to detect a match, he says.
