‘Even more shocking, health chiefs knew about the scandal & didn’t warn patients.’  By Jo Willey.
Commonly prescribed drugs were stolen in Italy & then sold to British pharmacists & hospitals, exposing patients to potentially lethal consequences.  Stockpiles of medications were deemed unsafe & health chiefs admit they have no record of who they were prescribed to.  Among them is prostate cancer treatment bicalutamide (Casodex) & the statin rosuvastatin (Crestor), antidepressants, drugs for Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis & epilepsy & asthma medicines etc.  “Medicines & Healthcare Regulatory Agency” were alerted in Aug 2014 yet failed to warn patients.  “Dispatches” TV documentary state that tampered-with drugs have entered the UK supply chain at least 9 times in the last 10 years.   Leading pharmacologists say these pills could at best be ineffective.  At worst, they might contain toxic potentially lethal substances.

UK - Dental profession supports local authorities taking water fluoridation forward

The national conference of Local Dental Committees which represents more than 25 thousand NHS dentists working in high street practices is supporting community water fluoridation in areas of need
At last week’s conference, a motion applauding those local authorities taking forward water fluoridation was approved unanimously.
The vote is an important milestone for the newly formed Community Water Fluoridation network.
The network’s role is to make sure that public consultations are informed by scientific evidence and accurate representation of the needs of families in their locality.
Local Dental Committee members have provided the impetus for the network which is supported by a wide range of dental, medical, child and health-related organisations.
These include NHS England, the British Fluoridation Society, the National Children’s Bureau, the British Dental Association, the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry and the Association of Dental Groups.

Improvement of oral health

Simon Hearnshaw, a dentist who works for Health Education England, and who put forward the motion, said: ‘To have this kind of unanimous response from dentists highlights just how strongly we all support fluoridation of water and want to see the oral health of our young patients improve.’
Water fluoridation is approved by parliament but since 2012, local authorities which want to implement the public health measure must first carry out a public consultation.
The network is at the ready to put forward dental and medical spokespeople from local communities who will answer questions and describe the dental challenges they are dealing with almost daily and the difference water fluoridation could make.
They will be ready to attend events and meetings over the course of the consultations so that there is consistent dental representation.
In 2016-17, more than 42,000 hospital admissions in England were for the extraction of decayed teeth, mostly in very young children, who cannot be treated in general practice, costing more than £50m.
Areas where water is not fluoridated have a disproportionately higher number of children suffering from dental decay.
Comment
How many more millions do they want to waste in trying to force us to drink fluoride?

Why?

For years I've searched Google first thing in the morning for all fluoride reports within 24 hours. Each time my Blogger was on the front page but no longer it isn't even on any page and my views stats have dropped considerably.

Co-incidence or deliberate I don't know.

Daily Mail - How to live longer: One surprising tip to extend your lifespan



..........A study, published in the Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology journal, investigated the link between tooth loss and mortality.
It revealed the number of teeth a person has is significantly correlated to their life expectancy.
Results found those with 20 teeth or more at the age of 70 had a considerably higher chance of living longer than those with less than 20 teeth.
According to Dr Nigel Carter OBE, Chief Executive of oral health charity the British Dental Health Foundation, a healthy mouth is a useful barometer for the overall health of the body.
He explained: "Oral health indicators such as gum disease have regularly been linked to a wide range of general health problems such as heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, dementia and problems during pregnancy.
"Many oral health diseases (such as gum disease) are entirely preventable and are caused by poor oral hygiene. By taking good care of our teeth, not only will our mouth benefit but the positive changes will be felt by the entire body."
According to the medical body Mayo Clinic, oral health may contribute to various diseases and conditions, including:
Endocarditis
This infection of the inner lining of your heart chambers or valves (endocardium) typically occurs when bacteria or other germs from another part of your body, such as your mouth, spread through your bloodstream and attach to certain areas in your heart.
Cardiovascular disease
Although the connection is not fully understood, some research suggests that heart disease, clogged arteries and stroke might be linked to the inflammation and infections that oral bacteria can cause.
Pregnancy and birth complications
Periodontitis has been linked to premature birth and low birth weight.
Pneumonia
Certain bacteria in your mouth can be pulled into your lungs, causing pneumonia and other respiratory diseases.
The medical site also suggests certain conditions could pose a risk to your oral health, including:
Diabetes
By reducing the body's resistance to infection, diabetes puts your gums at risk. Gum disease appears to be more frequent and severe among people who have diabetes.
Research shows that people who have gum disease have a harder time controlling their blood sugar levels. Regular periodontal care can improve diabetes control.
HIV/AIDS
Oral problems, such as painful mucosal lesions, are common in people who have HIV/AIDS.
Osteoporosis
This bone-weakening disease is linked with periodontal bone loss and tooth loss. Certain drugs used to treat osteoporosis carry a small risk of damage to the bones of the jaw.
Alzheimer's disease
Worsening oral health is seen as Alzheimer's disease progresses.

Here is a good letter to the editor that appeared in Nova Scota's Cape Breton Post from Bill Osmunson, DDS, MPH, (pictured above) explaining why he changed his mind on fluoridation, and why other public health professionals might want to reconsider the practice.
Making the printing of this letter more interesting is the editor's note in response to the attempted put-down of local activist Marlene Kane's well considered and science-based commentary by an ill-informed fluoridation promoter (Juliet Guichon, PhD) from Calgary. Too often Juliet Guichon flashes her PhD in ethics to assert authority on this issue when she has none. For those who believe in honest and courteous discourse on this issue, the editor's response was heartwarming. He or she writes:    
Criticism of Fluoridation Ban Call Has Provoked Reaction
Editor’s note: On May 27, the Cape Breton Post published a column by Sydney resident Marlene Kane which called for a ban on water fluoridation. On June 6, the Post published a letter from Juliet Guichon, an assistant professor at the University of Calgary, who called the ban fear mongering. This prompted a response from many* parts of the country…(*additional articles linked below)
Letter to the Editor
For my first 25 years as a dentist with a Masters Degree in Public Health, I promoted water fluoridation or fluoride supplements, as taught in school.
But reading the science myself over the next 17 years has been like a knee in the gut. Both my professions of dentistry and public health have been wrong, but we are changing.
A few reasons why dentistry and public health are reconsidering their support of fluoridation:
1. Too many are ingesting too much fluoride. Most children in the United States now have dental fluorosis, a biomarker of too much fluoride. Excess fluoride is harming many.
2. If a person wants more fluoride for their children, other sources of fluoride are available such as non-organic foods, fluoride toothpastes, fluoride medications, tea, grapes, fluoride supplements and more. Adding even more fluoride for everyone – those without teeth, those who have had too much fluoride, or those with chemical sensitivities – makes NO public health sense. Dental caries treatment is elective treatment, not a highly contagious life threatening disease.
3. The dosage of fluoride is not controlled. Not everyone drinks the same amount of water or ingests the same amount of fluoride from other sources.
4. We have no high quality studies of fluoridation’s effectiveness, safety or cost effectiveness. The research is mixed and controversial.
5. Current studies raise serious concerns for adverse effects and we have not even begun to seriously look at synergistic effects of different chemicals either for benefit or risk.
Good scientists do not simply trust other scientists. Circular referencing of our like-minded friends is more like gossip than science. Fluoridation is a house of cards, public health’s darkest hour and like most developed countries will soon be stopped.

USA - FLUORIDE TO STAY IN OCALA’S PUBLIC WATER

The Ocala City Council has voted to keep fluoride in its public water.
President of the American Fluoridation Society Johnny Johnson was a main supporter of keeping Ocala’s waters fluoridated.
“It doesn’t matter what age you are, what your income level is or your level of education or dental care,” Johnson said. “If you simply drink fluoridated water you’re going to have at least 25 percent less cavities and less severe cavities.”
The city council proposed a few weeks ago to lower the level of fluoride in its public water, claiming it causes health problems. Johnson says fluoridating public water benefits community members of all different socio-economic classes.

“Because there are other sources of fluoride, like in juices, products made in fluoridated communities, toothpaste being swallowed,” Johnson said. “We have one level of which is set from 0.7 to 1.2 [parts per million]. When we didn’t have climate control in all places, we didn’t have A.C. in our cars, up north they didn’t need those things…we drank more water in the south than they did in the north.”
According to research conducted by the American Fluoridation Society, $38 are saved in dental treatment costs, for every $1 invested in public water fluoridation.
Johnson fears Central Florida residents have been scared into believing their community’s tap water is undrinkable.

“All you have to do if you want to find out what’s in the water, is Google ‘water quality report’, and you can see exactly what the level is,” Johnson said. “It’ll show there was a range, from this to this, within the years time, and here’s what our average is. That average should be right at 0.7 parts per million, or right around it.”
The Ocala City Council voted to keep fluoride levels consistent with what the Department of Health recommends.

STATINS

One month after taking Statins for  preventing another stroke my knee began to play up. It felt warm and painful. After increasing pain my other knee also became painful. After suffering for 5 months I decided to stop taking any more Statins. One week later one knee is pain free and the other is better than what it was. I even feel better but that may be due to the relief in having regained mobility again.

If you tell a doctor you've stopped taken statins they can get annoyed and might tell you to go elsewhere. 

How many of you have had the same side affect as more and more people are put on statins. I've spoken to people who have taken them for years with no trouble so it isn't everybody who suffers side affects.

When Dr. Hardy Limeback's research on bone tissue led him to the realization that public water fluoridation is a costly mistake, his colleagues urged him to keep quiet. Instead he called a meeting to apologize for misleading his dental students on the safety of fluoride, beginning a lifelong conversation about the negative health effects of artificial water fluoridation. Despite the toll on his career, Dr. Limeback continues to voice his concerns about this practice that affects millions of people around the world. In his interview with Melissa Gallico, he explains why—"I'm passionate. I want to see change before I die." Dr. Hardy Limeback is the former head of preventive dentistry at the University of Toronto and a past president of the Canadian Association for Dental Research. He also has a PhD in collagen biochemistry and is a coauthor of the U.S. National Research Council's 2006 report, Fluoride in Drinking Water. Melissa Gallico is the founder of Gallico Studios and author of The Hidden Cause of Acne: How Toxic Water is Affecting Your Health and What You Can Do About It and F Is for Fluoride: A Feasible Fairytale for Freethinkers 15 and Up.
