UK Against Fluoridation

N.Z. - Fluoridation letter

In response to the letters from Darrell Grace (March 8) and Chris Price (March 23) on fluoridation:

1) Chris has not referenced his letter properly so I assume he is referring to the 2016 Harvard University publication when he states "fluoridated water is safe". It says: "Health concerns expressed by opponents have largely been dismissed until recently." https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/magazine/magazine_article/fluoridated-drinking-water/

Chris also states: "No quality research states anything of the kind in reference to my claim that 'water fluoridation at .7 ppm causes a range of problems including that it is a neurotoxin."

As stated in my letter of February 23, fluoride accumulates in our bodies as we only excrete 50-60 per cent as adults, and 20 per cent as children. We are also exposed from many sources, including the one dumped in water hydrofluorosilicic acid - classification: Schedule 7 (dangerous poison) Hazchem Class 6 (acutely toxic ) & 8 (corrosive).

The classification of fluoride as a neurotoxin is in a paper in the March 2014 edition of The Lancet Neurology, entitled "Neurobehavioural Effects Of Developmental Toxicity".

2) Darrell states dental fluorosis is "sometimes a mild discolouration of the enamel". This sign of systemic toxicity is prevalent in 41 per cent of NZ children according to the Ministry of Health. [Abridged]
