UK Against Fluoridation

Australia - Fluoride in water may be slowly poisoning us

IMAGINE the headline: "Chinese dump industrial waste product into our drinking water supply”.
Cue the mass uproar. But apparently no one really cares in the south-east of the state.
Thanks to Anna Bligh, under the guise of preventing tooth decay, fluoride was added to our water supply and mandated as compulsory in 2008 for all Queensland councils.
A few short years later, councils were given the choice to add or not to add the toxic mining aluminium processing by-product, thankfully to some common sense prevailing in 2012.
Cairns dumped it in 2013, with a number of more enlightened councils following suit.
Most recently, Mackay and Gladstone have voted against it - meaning fluoridation will continue in only 24 of the state's 77 councils - most of those in the south-east.
North of the Maroochy River no longer has it and living in Caloundra, I'm left wondering why we are so behind the rest of the Coast, the state and world for that matter.
A Harvard study has proven the ill effects of fluoride on child development and IQ, let alone links to dementia, arthritis and many other common ailments.
Maybe the politicians want to replace the state's Smart State slogan with "The Dumb State”.
I resent filling my children's drink bottles every day for school with it and have gone to great lengths to get another supply of non-chemical drinking water for our home.
The party line officials usually spin is that the safe percentage added has little effect.
The problem is, as scientifically independently proven, it is a neuro-toxin (now in the same classification as mercury and lead) that builds up in the body over time.
In the US, use of fluoride has never been approved by the FDA and the eye-opening origins of the infamous chemical, if you hadn't already heard, according to some conspiracy followers, come from the Nazis adding it to the water supply at death camps to subdue prisoners.
So my question is: why, oh why, in this century do we continue this con?
Fluoride in our toothpaste is surely enough ... the warning on the packet advises strongly against ingesting the substance.
The use of fluoride in water supply to improve dental health has never been conclusively proven.
So we are left to also shower in it and induce it through our skin, which increases the toxicity tenfold when heated ... in your tea or bath.
Our councillors are certainly not scientists, nor are they health professionals or qualified in any respect, and the decision to mess with our most important natural resource is ludicrous.
