UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoride Alert newsletter

Human Rights
Today, December 10, is Human Rights Day. It commemorates the day in 1948 when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In a world where we daily witness gross abuses of human rights it is difficult to find hope, but it is there in each one of us. I remember in the 1960s reading a short statement from Alan Paton, the author of Cry the Beloved Country, a novel written during the apartheid era in South Africa. How could a white humanitarian find hope in such a situation? He wrote, “The only way we can endure man’s inhumanity to man, is to make our own lives an example of man’s humanity to man.” For nearly 50 years I have had the privilege of working with people around the world who live up to this ideal.

Fluoridation and Human Rights
No government (local, state or federal) should have the right to add chemicals to the drinking water designed to treat human beings (e.g. fluoride, with proposals for lithium and statins) as opposed to treating the water to make it safe or palatable to drink (e.g. chlorine, albeit there are safer ways to disinfect water). Treating human beings in this way violates the individual's right to informed consent to medical - or human - treatment. Most European countries recognize this human right. Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, the US and a handful of other countries, do not. With your help in 2016 we will continue to challenge the right of these countries to arrogantly abuse our human rights on a daily basis.
Teleconference This Weekend

On Sunday, December 12th at 5pm (EST), the Fluoride Action Network team will be featured on this month’s International Fluoride Free Teleconference. The call is free and will provide a year-in-review of the fluoride issue, as well as provide an opportunity for supporters to ask the FAN team questions. So please plan on joining us for this great opportunity to interact with fellow campaigners from around the world and have your questions about fluoride and the Fluoride Action Network answered by the experts.
