UK Against Fluoridation

Where’s the evidence?

Where’s the evidence?
Sep 20 2008 by Our Correspondent, South Wales Echo
OUR nannying Government has outlawed smoking indoors because “second-hand smoke (SHS) kills”.
Now let’s see if their scare-mongering is based on science or superstition.
The keystone of this whole panic is their claim: “There is no safe level of exposure to SHS.”
Wow, this IS worrying, since there are safe levels of exposure to everything from fluoride to nuclear radiation, SHS must be the most toxic substance known to science.
What’s worse, it seems to have a sort of deadly malevolent intelligence because although the government admits “ventilation removes the smoke” it does not, they say, “eliminate toxic carcinogens from the air”.
So the Government believes even if air is continually changed these “toxic carcinogens” (is there another kind?) somehow swim against the airflow and remain in the room – rather like evil spirits that refuse to be exorcised.
This is not science, it’s frightened superstitious voodoo and a gross insult to our intelligence. In any case, if there’s “no safe level” of SHS we must be in just as much danger outdoors as in.
Is there nowhere we can hide from the Satanic curses of SHS? What utter poppycock! How can any self-respecting scientist put their name to this nonsense? Yet this law is based on a report by the supposedly independent Scientific Committee on Tobacco and Health.
Independent? Scientific? Scoth was actually a coven of hi-profile anti-smoking professors so their independence and scientific detachment is highly questionable.
In short, this whole passive smoking panic is thoroughly fraudulent, disgracefully dishonest and the public health equivalent of Mr Blair’s infamous WMD debacle.

Not much to do with fluoridtion but I agree with his sentiments we are being brainwashed by a nanny state that thinks that it knows best.
