UK Against Fluoridation

Saturday, December 31, 2016

Why do they need a society to promote fluoride. - at least no one pays me to counter their propaganda

New Fluoridation Society Provides Help to Fight Myths

Johnny Johnson Jr., DMD, president of the newly formed American Fluoridation Society (AFS) got into the fluoridation fight when local officials in his community of Pinellas County, FL, voted in 2011 to discontinue water fluoridation, citing concern that residents might be ingesting too much fluoride . . .

“I thought she was kidding, but she was serious,” he recounted. “I explained there’s been no literature that found any connection whatsoever between water fluoridation and cancer, and I sent her information. She was blown away by the research and said she had definitely been misled.”

In another incident, a public health student told him there was “lots of debate about toxins and arsenic in fluoride.” Dr. Johnson replied: “There’s no debate; the science is crystal clear.”

. . . The main thing that healthcare professionals can do is be aware of what’s going on in their communities regarding water fluoridation, Dr. Johnson advised. Letters to newspapers and noticing what people are saying about the issue are tip-off’s about efforts against community water fluoridation.

Myths? Who is he kidding.!

  • Why don't you provide valid, documented evidence that any information disseminated by the AFS is "propaganda"?

    Why would you feel a need to note that you aren't being paid to "counter" the AFS? Does this mean you are paid for your other antifluoridation activities? Of what relevance is your income to the issue of fluoridation?

    Perhaps if you stuck to facts and evidence instead of relying on unsubstantiated claims, and innuendo, you might someday gain at least a modicum of credibility.

  • Nice to hear from you Steven good to know you follow my blog. Just pointing out you are paid while I do this freely. We are on the right side. We will win Steve.

  • Sure, your nonsense shows up in "googlealert" along with mounds of other antifluoridation nonsense. Sometimes when I'm bored, with nothing else to do, I'll point out the false nature of your claims.

    If being on the "right side" means having no compunction about posting patently false claims, then the "right side" is in deep trouble.

    So, to recap so far:

    1. You have as yet to meet my challenge to provide documented evidence of this "propaganda" you claim you aren't paid to "counter".

    2. You can provide no evidence, whatsoever, to support your false claim that I am paid.

    Hmmm, you've already dug yourself a hole of which you can't get out.

    "The right side" might want to reassess its position.......

  • Well the BFS got lots of grants and I presume they paid it out so I assumed the AFS do also.
    Good for you if you don't get paid and you are motivated by pure intentions but so am I.
    I wasn't impressed watching the video you appeared in Paul looked far more statesmanlike and believable.

  • See, therein lies the difference. You post a false claim, based nothing but some "assumption" or other. That's exactly the problem with fluoridation opponents. They do not verify the validity of their claims before they make them, and have no compunction about publicly disseminating false and misleading information.

    Yes, Bill, of course Connett looked "far more statesmanlike and believable" to you, and all other antifluoridationists. It would have been a shock had he not.

  • Are you saying the AFS has no money? BFS at one time got £000s from various bodies including the government.
    So you do all this work to promote fluoridation for no recompense. How commendable.
    Although I'm not sure you are an asset to your cause as you are too offensive and dismissive of all opposing arguments.

    Still I wish you a happy 2017 and may you see that imposing your will on people is wrong.

    Let’s hope the president elect will take an interest and put a stop to this practice once and for all.
