Trillions of dollars have been spent during the last 60 years
promoting artificial water fluoridation around the world.
Yet very few countries adopted the practice and many of these
have since discontinued it, – with no increase in tooth decay.
Only 5% of the world’s population has opted for
their municipal water to be fluoridated.

The harmful implications of poor nutrition in assoiciation with fluorides, as well as the damaging effects of lead, (old roofs and solder in rainwater tanks, [Australia] Copper, Cadmium, Aluminium, Arsenic, Beryllium, Chromium, Iron, Mercury, and Nickel have been virtually ignored.
Over 400 medications increase tooth decay.

to keep up with recent overseas research on fluoridation.
The chemicals mostly used to fluoridate drinking water are
waste products derived from the manufacture of
phosphate fertilizer. Fluorine is the most

it’s never found alone in nature.

RECENT FROM → FAN ← QUICK FACTS:
‘ Natural Fluoride ’ Also Causes Health Problems:
Calcium fluoride - CaF2 – occurs naturally, although mostly in relatively small amounts, in some rivers, wells and bore waters, as does arsenic. However this ‘natural’ fluoride can cause health problems. Excessive fluoride concentrations have been reported in the ground-waters of more than 20 countries including in India where 19 states are facing acute fluorosis problems. Large numbers of people in Japan, China, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Mexico and Africa develop dental fluorosis, a biomarker for crippling skeletal fluorosis and other fluoride induced health abnormalities. Skeletal fluorosis is a crippling bone disease caused by fluoride exposure. Millions of people world-wide are afflicted. It also affects animals foraging on contaminated feed (air pollution) and consuming water from some underground sources.
Fluorine (F.), a member of the halogen family, is the most electronegative and reactive of all the elements of Periodic Table. Elemental fluorine does not exist in nature but forms inorganic and organic compounds called fluorides representing approximately 0.06–0.09% of the Earth’s crust.
Fluorides are released into environment by both natural♦
and anthropogenic processes.

The amount released will depend on the material being burnt or smelted e.g. “dirty” brown coal releases more F. into the air than the hard “clean” coal anthracite. Fluorides are released into the environment via coal combustion and process waters and waste from various industrial processes, including steel manufacture, primary aluminium, copper and nickel production, phosphate ore processing, phosphate fertilizer production and use, glass, brick and ceramic manufacturing, and glue and adhesive production, oil refining, car exhausts, welding,

The use of the fluoride-containing pesticide, sulfuryl fluoride as a food fumigant (trade name ProFume ®) as well as the fluoridation of drinking water, also contribute to the release of fluoride from anthropogenic sources. Based on available data, phosphate ore production and use, as well as aluminium manufacture are the major industrial sources of fluoride release into the environment.
Sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2) is a radiatively active industrial chemical released into the atmosphere in significant (ktonne/year) quantities. The potential for SO2F2 to contribute to radiative forcing of climate change needs to be assessed. Long path length FTIR/smog chamber techniques were used to investigate the kinetics of the gas-phase reactions of Cl atoms, OH radicals, and O3 with SO2F2, in 700 Torr total pressure of air or N2 at 296 ± 1 K. Upper limits of k(Cl + SO2F2) < 9 × 10−19, k(OH + SO2F2) < 1.7 × 10−14 and k(O3 + SO2F2) < 5.5 × 10−24 cm3 molecule−1 s−1 were determined. Reaction with Cl atoms, OH radicals, or O3 does not provide an efficient removal mechanism for SO2F2. The infrared spectrum of SO2F2 is reported and a radiative efficiency of 0.196 W m−2 ppbv−1 was calculated. Historic production data estimates are presented which provide an upper limit for expected atmospheric concentrations. The radiative forcing of climate change associated with emissions of SO2F2 depends critically on the atmospheric lifetime of SO2F2.

Fluorosis Is A Pathological Condition,
It Affects Humans And Animals.
Dental fluorosis is a biomarker of systemic toxic over-exposure to fluoride. It occurs during teeth formation in the presence of fluorides in air, water, or food, and is also an indicator of skeletal fluorosis, which can also occur after exposure later in life, after teeth formation, - however this will not be recorded on the teeth.

All fluoride compounds interfere with thyroid hormones and are factors in Hashimoto’s Disease.
(Between 6% – 10% of Australians are affected by hypothyroidism which results in death after 10 to 15 years
without medication.) The distortion of protein structure causes the immune proteins to fail to recognize
body proteins, and so instigate an attack on them, which is Autoimmune Disease.
Autoimmune diseases constitute a body of disease processes troubling many thousands of people:
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus Erythematosus, Asthma and Systemic Sclerosis are examples.
Fluoride causes thyroid antibodies to be produced, which cause Thyroiditis resulting

‘morbid obesity’ plus risk of “bromide intoxication – ‘brain fog’,

Case Report: The patient presented with headache, fatigue, ataxia, and memory loss which progressed over 30 days. He consumed 2 to 4 L of cola containing brominated vegetable oil on a daily basis before presenting with these symptoms. His significantly elevated serum chloride, as measured by ion specific methods, and negative anion gaps were overlooked during a prior hospitalization and emergency department visits. A focal neurologic finding of right eyelid ptosis led to an extensive evaluation for a central nervous system lesion. The patient continued to deteriorate, until he was no longer able to walk. A diagnosis of severe bromism was eventually made and his serum bromide was confirmed at 3180 mg/L (39.8 mmol/L). Despite saline loading the patient failed to improve but subsequent hemodialysis dramatically cleared his clinical condition, and reduced his serum bromide levels. The unilateral eyelid ptosis, a rarely reported finding in bromism, also resolved with hemodialysis.
A negative anion gap or an elevated serum chloride should prompt an evaluation for bromism.
In this case hemodialysis dramatically improved the patient’s clinical
condition and reduced the half-life of bromide to 1.38

❝ … Many people are relatively deficient in iodine, and because of this they will readily absorb iodine from the environment. Your body is unable to recognize the difference between regular iodine and radioactive iodine. It will absorb them equally well. So if you are deficient in iodine and a radioactive cloud passes by, [Japanese nuclear crisis] your body will tend to suck that radioactive iodine into your thyroid gland to fill up its iodine stores.
In an ideal situation you will have been taking adequate amounts of iodine from safe sources which will not only protect you from radioactive iodine but from environmental toxins that can poison your thyroid gland like Fluoride, Bromine and Chlorine.
If you have not been taking iodine and a radioactive cloud comes near your area then it would make sense to take large doses of prophylactic iodine to prevent your thyroid gland from absorbing the radioactive iodine. However it is important to understand that the large dose of [potassium iodide] only protects your thyroid for one to three days, no longer and it does absolutely nothing to protect you from detoxifying the radiation… ❞

COLLAGEN IS THE BODY’S GLUE
AND FLUORIDE RUINS IT
When collagen breaks down, tissues simply lose their substance, their framework. Fluoride dissolves the body’s glue simply by preventing new collagen from being formed. John Yiamouyiannis, PhD., gives a masterful explanation of this in his work
… Not only is the collagen incorrectly formed, it is wrongly mineralized.
Some collagen, like bones and teeth, should be mineralized in order to
give it hardness. Other collagen structures, like ligaments, tendons
and muscles, should not be mineralized, in order to keep them flexible
and resilient. Fluoride mineralizes the tendons, and muscles and ligaments,
making them crackly and painful and inflexible. At the same time fluoride
interferes with mineralization of bones and teeth, causing osteoporosis
and a premature health decline …
FLUORIDE PREMATURELY AGES THE BODY,
Mainly By The Distortion Of Enzyme Shapes:
When enzymes get twisted out of shape, they can’t do their jobs. This results in collagen breakdown, eczema, tissue damage, skin wrinkling, genetic damage, and immune suppression. Practically any disease you can name may then be caused. All systems of the body are dependent upon enzymes. When fluoride changes the enzymes, this can damage: immune system, digestive system, respiratory system, blood circulation, kidney function, liver function, brain function and thyroid function. These distorted enzymes are proteins, but now they have become foreign protein, which we know is the exact cause of autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, arthritis, asthma, and arteriosclerosis. Fluoride also accumulates in the organelles of animal cells and shuts down enzyme activity. . . Fluoride as a factor in cataracts has been established by statistical studies of
Dr. Ionel F. Rapaport and confirmed by the research of Dr. Burgstahler.
This has also been confirmed by analysis of cataracted and un-cataracted eye lenses. The older
the person, the more fluoride is in the lenses. It is therefor no surprise that recent
research from Nuclear Medicine Communications, ( Pubmed Data :
Nucl Med Commun. 2012 Jan;33(1):14-20. PMID: 21946616 )
highlights the fact that mass fluoride exposure may be to
blame for the cardiovascular disease epidemic that
takes more lives each year than cancer (USA).

Fluoridation involves the dumping of tones of industrial toxic waste into the drinking water supply systems of our state. Phosphate fertilizer plants produce large quantities of toxic waste (silicofluorides, “SiFs” – fluosilicic acid or hexafluorosilicic acid, H2SiF6, and sodium fluosilicate or silicofluoride, Na2SiF6), which are recovered and require neutralization and disposal. Normally it would cost several thousand dollars per truckload to do this. But it has been contrived for these unrefined products, with their heavy metal contaminants, to be sold for injection into the water supplies of compliant cities and governments, under the guise of reducing dental decay. Industry thus benefits from not having to pay for it’s disposal, and at the same time makes a tidy profit on the sale of this waste. (Estimated 2000% profit)…
Water Fluoridation is often used to deliberately mask
the damage caused by fluoride pollution.

one atom of Silicon and six atoms of Fluorine.

Sodium Fluorosilicate, Sodium Hexafluorosilicate,
Sodium Silicon Fluoride and Hexafluorosilicate Disodium.
The chemicals mostly used to fluoridate drinking water are derived from the manufacture of phosphate fertiliser.
These chemical emissions are captured by the industry’s wet scrubbing systems – in their smoke stacks.
The product is not “fluorine” or “fluoride”.
It is a pollution concentrate.
Fluoride is only approximately
19% of the total product captured.

Beryllium, Cadmium, Nickel, Lead ♥
Mercury, Chromium, Sulfides,
It has been suggested that the addition of contaminants like arsenic is insignificant,
and it is not easily measured once diluted in drinking water.
Even small amounts of arsenic, over a long time, can cause cancer of the bladder,
kidney, lung or skin, previous research has found.
There are no known “safe” concentrations for Level One Carcinogens.

♥ LEAD AND FLUORIDES
Silicofluorides contain more lead than sodium fluoride. Compared with NaF, SiFs cause more lead to be leached from brass pipe and fittings and from the lead solder used to solder copper pipe and cast iron water mains. For all these reasons SiFs should be disallowed as fluoridation materials.
Once lead is consumed it pervades
the entire body, passing through the
Brain, Placental, and Mammalian Barriers.
There is a custom of using pipes for electrical grounding.
Many older houses are still grounded through metal water pipes.
This accelerates lead corrosion and also increases lead in drinking water.

Some Pine Trees are very sensitive to fluorides and can be used as bio-indicators for air [soil and water] pollution. Some ferns and rain forest plants show sensitivity to fluoride when watered on their foliage.
Fluoride-induced injury (air pollution) to coniferous forests can occur at a distance of 32 km from an emitting source, and total destruction of some species at 13 km distance. Fluorides are released into the air in both a gaseous state (as hydrogen fluoride and silicon tetrafluoride) and in solid particles. The particles fall on, and the gases are absorbed by, vegetation near the polluting industry. If this vegetation includes forage crops, which are fed to cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, or kangaroos. (The EPA says fluoride from Alcoa’s aluminium smelter at Portland [Victoria] is making kangaroos sick. 23 Feb. 2010), serious problems can ensue, since these animals, particularly cattle are vulnerable to fluoride. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “Airborne fluorides have caused more worldwide damage to domestic animals than any other air pollutant.” Huge compensation payments have been made, – mostly as out of court settlements.
❝ The thing to note with plants is that plants will readily absorb fluorine that is sprayed [(irrigation,) or falls] on the leaves. If flood [or drip] irrigation is used, the plants accumulate far less fluoride due to calcium absorption in the soil and the plant’s discriminatory uptake through the roots ❞

AQUATIC ORGANISMS & FLUORIDES
❝…Aquatic organisms living in soft waters may be more adversely affected by fluoride pollution than those living in hard or seawaters because the bioavailability of fluoride ions is reduced with increasing water hardness. Fluoride can either inhibit or enhance the population growth of algae, depending upon fluoride concentration, exposure time and algal species. Aquatic plants seem to be effective in removing fluoride from contaminated water under laboratory and field conditions. In aquatic animals, fluoride tends to be accumulated in the exoskeleton of invertebrates and in the bone tissue of fishes. The toxic action of fluoride resides in the fact that fluoride ions act as enzymatic poisons, inhibiting enzyme activity and, ultimately, interrupting metabolic processes such as glycolysis and synthesis of proteins. Fluoride toxicity to aquatic invertebrates and fishes increases with increasing fluoride concentration, exposure time and water temperature, and decreases with increasing intraspecific body size and water content of calcium and chloride. Freshwater invertebrates and fishes, especially net-spinning caddis fly larvae and upstream-migrating adult salmons, appear to be more sensitive to fluoride toxicity than estuarine and marine animals. Because, in soft waters with low ionic content, a fluoride concentration as low as 0.5 mg F-/l can adversely affect invertebrates and fishes, safe levels below this fluoride concentration are recommended in order to protect freshwater animals from fluoride pollution…❞

Fipronil (Manufactured by Bayer) is highly toxic for bees *, crustaceans, insects and
zooplankton, as well termites, rabbits, the fringe-toed lizard and certain groups
of gallinaceous birds. It appears to reduce the longevity and
fecundity of female braconid parasitoids.
… Fipronil -Fluocyanobenpyrazole, C12H4Cl2F6N4OS, is a slow-acting fluoride based poison. It is a broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insect central nervous system by blocking the passage of chloride ions through the GABA receptor and glutamate receptor I(GluCl), components of the central nervous system. This causes hyperexcitation of contaminated insects’ nerves and muscles.

FLUORIDE IN PET FOOD:
Manataka American Indian Council™
Fluoride – dangerously high levels found in pet food
By Melissa Solis – Houston Pet Care Examiner
Pet food has a new level of danger hiding behind its labels. Environmental Working Group (EWG) just released a new study that showed high levels of fluoride in eight of ten pet foods tested. Consuming fluoride can lead to many serious health concerns.
Three studies show that boys who drink fluoridated tap water between the ages of 6 and 8 face a heightened risk of osteosarcoma, the rare but deadly form of bone cancer associated with fluoride (Bassin 2006; Cohn 1992; DHHS 1991). Scientists suspect that boys’ rapid growth may make them more susceptible to bone cancer (Bassin 2006)
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone tumor in dogs; it is estimated to occur in over 8,000 dogs each year in the U.S., primarily in larger breeds (Chun 2003; Dernell 2001; Priester 1980; Withrow 1991). According to a recent expert review, the actual incidence is probably higher, since not all cases are confirmed and registered (Mueller 2007). Large dogs with fast growing bones are especially at risk. Only 5% of all osteosarcomas develop in dogs weighing less than 30 pounds and giant dogs generally develop osteosarcoma at a younger age compared to smaller-sized dogs and (Cooley 1997; Misdorp 1979).
A dog drinking adequate water would be exposed to 0.05-0.1 mg fluoride per kg of body weight daily, depending on the dog’s water consumption. A 10-pound puppy that eats about a cup of dog food a day would ingest approximately 0.25 mg fluoride/kg body weight/day based on average fluoride content in the 8 contaminated brands tested by EWG. At that rate, the puppy would consume 2.5 times more fluoride than EPA’s legal limit in drinking water.
When fluoride in drinking water is taken into consideration, a 10-pound puppy would be exposed
to 3.5 times more fluoride than EPA allows in drinking water.
Large breed puppies may be exposed to even more fluoride.

— P.T.F.E. —
Pet birds can die an extremely painful
and agonizing death when exposed to
fumes from Teflon Cookware (contains F.)
“Like so many products developed for the sake of convenience without concern for human health, Teflon coated non-stick cookware when heated has proven to be a primary source of a dangerous toxic fluoride derivative, specifically perfluorinated chemicals”.
This non-stick coating is also marketed as:
Silverstone, Fluron, Supra, Excalibur, Greblon, Xylon, Duracote, and Resistal.
PTFE is odorless and invisible and bioaccumulates. When heated above 260ºC it is lethal to birds (pets) and will give humans flu like symptoms. A Teflon pan reached 721°F in just five minutes as measured by a commercially available infrared thermometer.
The toxicity doesn’t come from Teflon directly, but mainly from one of the many compounds that are released when the non-stick coating is heated to a high temperature. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), known as C8 (because it has 8 carbon atoms), is a proven carcinogen. Lab studies suggest that PFOA can cause cancer and birth defects in animals, and might pose a risk in humans. PFOA stays in the body for years and in the environment indefinitely.
→ PFOS. ←
Because of Teflon’s wide spread use over the last 50 years, you might guess that, by now,
PFOA and PFOS should be inside just about every one of us, and you would be correct !
PFOA & PFOS in 100% of all newborn’s blood!
In 2007, the shocking results of a study conducted at the John Hopkin’s Medical Center (Bethesda, MD) showed that levels of the toxic PFOA were found in 100% of a sample of almost 300 newborns, delivered at the hospital. Samples of umbilical chord blood were also shown to contain varying levels of PFOS. Asians (6 ng/ml) had the highest concentration, followed by Blacks (5.1 ng/ml) and Whites (4.2 ng/ml). Males babies had higher PFOS and PFOA than females. Obese and underweight mothers had slightly higher concentrations than women of normal weight. Other studies have found that some of the highest levels of PFOA and PFOS have been in children.
Two perfluorinated compounds– PFOA and PFOS– were found in virtually all of 299 newborn babies studied in Baltimore, according to scientists from Johns Hopkins University. The results indicate that exposure in the womb to these two chemicals is virtually ubiquitous.
Eight other PFCs were detected less frequently.
The saturation of PFOA in human blood has lots of scientists worried. The PFOA molecule does not degrade over time, so every one that is made and released in the environment will continue to be there for an indefinite time. The cumulative levels of PFOA will continue to increase in both the environment and in the human body.
DuPont studies show that the Teflon off-gases toxic particulates at 446° F.
At 680°F Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens,
two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses.
At temperatures that DuPont scientists claim are reached on stovetop
drip pans (1000°F), non-stick coatings break down to a chemical
warfare agent known as PFIB, a chemical analog of the

5 November 1968, and finished on 14 July 1979.
Brisbane Mayor Atkinson April 1985 proposed to fluoridate Brisbane city,
but changed her mind after she examined technical literature – Including
1974-1978, lost his safe seat in Ipswich when he proposed to fluoridate all of Queensland.
The Lord Mayor’s Task Force On Fluoridation was established in January 1997 in response to debate in the media and the political arena about whether Brisbane’s water supply should be fluoridated. - “The majority of Taskforce members would not support the introduction of water fluoridation to Brisbane until the recommended Australian research has been carried out”.
The Queensland Government’s official Water Fluoridation Position Statement in 2003 admits that without the express consent of the community, water fluoridation is unethical mass medication and that a referendum ensures community consent.
— In 2004, amendments were made to the Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies Act 1963 (Qld) which removed the need for a council to hold a poll for the purpose of determining whether a majority would vote against the proposal. —
Anna Bligh’s Harmful Legacy
The now deposed and discredited Bligh Government • ignored history, science, and the wishes of the people: The Queensland Government committed $35 million to rolling out a capital program to ensure that more than 90 percent of Queenslanders would have access to (- read forced to drink – ) fluoridated water by 2012. On the 12 Feb. 2008 the Fluoride Bill was introduced to The Parliament of Queensland by Anna Bligh, Queensland’s Premier.
QUEENSLAND HEALTH – [DEPARTMENT] with help from the ADA Qld., both with an agenda of secrecy, and with little knowledge of human health, democratic rights, or eco-systems and USING DISTORTED FIGURES and The Townsville Report, pushed the bill through the house.
Dr. Exner observed, ❝ that someone would analyze tissues in both high and low fluoride areas and find
that fluorine poisoning is common [in those residing in high areas]. But if every community can
be fluoridated there will be no fluorine-free areas for comparison. ❞

ADDING FLUORIDE TO OUR DRINKING WATER
EXACERBATES THE PROBLEM.
A NEW RECENT HOPE !
On 29 November 2012 the Queensland Parliament reversed the previous government’s mandate requiring all public potable water supplies serving more than 1000 people to add fluoride to the water. As a consequence of these changes local councils in Queensland [now] have the CHOICE to add fluoride to drinking water supplies.
The previous government, under Queensland Premier Anna Bligh, announced on 5 December 2007 that the fluoridation of most of Queensland’s water supplies will begin in 2008. When it was enacted the Water Fluoridation Act 2008 required the addition of fluoride to any water supply supplying potable water to at least 1000 members of the public, unless an exemption is granted based on safety or naturally occurring levels that meet the required levels. Prior to this legislation Queensland was the only Australian state without a formal statewide program for the addition of fluoride to drinking water.
The Water Fluoridation Regulation 2008 listed 134 drinking water supplies that were to be fluoridated by 31 December 2012. Of the drinking water supplies listed in the Regulation, 32 comprised the SEQ Water Grid located in Southeast Queensland. The fluoridation of these supplies by the end of 2009 accounted for the largest increase in people currently receiving fluoridated water in Queensland (approximately 2.6 million people in 2006 or 68% of the Queensland population). Prior to the requirement to add fluoride in 2008 the towns of Biloela, Dalby, Gatton, Mareeba, Moranbah, and Townsville/Thuringowa had been adding fluoride to their drinking water – some since 1972, though some of these towns stopped adding fluoride prior to the Water Fluoridation Act. Before the current legislation the addition of fluoride to water supplies was regulated by the Fluoridation of Water Supplies Act 1963.
The fluoridation of drinking water supplies is regulated by QueenslandHealth, with implementation supported by the former Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation. 
Several areas of Queensland, such as Julia Creek, Quilpie, Thargomindah and Adavale are known to have naturally occurring fluoride present in their drinking water, a characteristic that has been studied since the late 1920s.

FLUORIDATION IS NOT SUPPORTED BY ALL
POWERFUL CORPORATE INTERESTS ARE
INVOLVED IN THE PUSH FOR FLUORIDATION —
Fluoridation is an entrenched myth from the 1950’s. It is based on flawed research, but has become a mantra for most dental schools whose uncritical staff and students have been indoctrinated about its supposed “benefits” for over two generations. Medical schools have become aligned with this thinking. This is encouraged by the financial support that flows to universities, dental schools and to some practitioners from the sugar purveyors and industries having much to gain financially in various ways from the promotion of fluoridation.
“…The establishment ‘experts’ generally receive better coverage in the media than ‘dissidents’ on most environmental, health and political issues. In the case of fluoridation the ‘experts’ have succeeded in convincing the vast majority of people in whole countries that opponents must be either cranks, extreme right-wingers or left extremists, or health ‘faddists’. This remarkable propaganda success has been achieved primarily by trading on the authority of the medical profession and by putting pressure on ‘dissident’ medical doctors, dentists and scientists to keep silent. The stereotyping of opponents has placed pressure on scientific and professional journals and the media not to publish material critical of fluoridation…”

Fluoride May Damage Bones Of Kidney Patients
NEW YORK, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ —
The National Kidney Foundation withdrew its support of water fluoridation citing the 2006 National Research Council (NRC) report indicating that kidney patients are more susceptible to fluoride’s bone and teeth-damaging effects. The kidney-impaired retain more fluoride and risk skeletal fluorosis (an arthritic-type bone disease), fractures and severe enamel fluorosis, which may increase the risk of dental decay, reports the NRC. Fluoride is added to US water supplies ostensibly to reduce tooth decay. Fluoride is also in foods, beverages, drugs and dental products. The National Kidney Foundation’s (NKF) former fluoridation position statement also carried surprising cautions. The NKF advised monitoring children’s fluoride intake along with patients with chronic kidney impairment, those with excessive fluoride intake, and those with prolonged disease. But NKF now admits, “exposure from food and beverages is difficult to monitor, since FDA food labels do not quantify fluoride content.” The NKF’s April 15, 2008 statement goes further: “Individuals with CKD [Chronic Kidney Disease] should be notified of the potential risk of fluoride exposure.” “More than 20 million Americans have CKD, and most don’t even know it. More than 20 million others are at increased risk for developing CKD,” NKF reports. “There is consistent evidence that impairment of kidney function results in changes to the way in which fluoride is metabolized and eliminated from the body, resulting in an increased burden of fluoride,” concludes Kidney Health Australia in a paper NKF recommends reading. NKF’s fluoridation support was dropped when a lawyer, an academic dentist and public health professional, Daniel Stockin, alerted it to NRC’s findings. “An easy way to reduce the uncontrolled flow of fluoride into our bodies is to stop water fluoridation,” says attorney Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. “But it takes political will to reject fluoridation.” The American and Louisiana Dental Associations erroneously claim the National Kidney Foundation supports fluoridation. However, even the ADA reports that “decreased fluoride removal may occur among persons with severely impaired kidney function who may not be on kidney dialysis.” Chronic kidney disease is a growing health problem in the United States occurring more often in African-American populations, says the Centers for Disease Control.
• The National Parent-Teachers (USA) Association withdrew
its support for fluoridation on 17 April 1991.
From August 1995 to August 1996,

Fluoridation promoters try to deny that water fluoridation is a form of mass medication, claiming that, as there is often a small amount of natural fluoride in some waters (i.e. calcium fluoride), “…it is just topping up the water with extra fluoride to achieve the ‘optimal’ level…”
Arsenic also occurs naturally in some waters !
This is a cunning evasion of the real issues involved, see crooked thinking –
an unconscionable violation of medical ethics
and is against many human rights charters.
✹ FIRSTLY, the “extra fluoride” is in the form of sodium fluorosilicate, an unrefined artificial toxic waste containing fluoride, this does not occur in nature. See above.
✹ SECONDLY, there is no “optimal level” for fluoride because it is not a nutrient. – No disease has been linked to fluoride deficiency -
✹ THIRDLY, the addition of fluoride to water cannot be likened to the blanket use of chlorine in water treatment, which is accepted as a necessary precaution to make the water safe to drink, and it can be easily removed – unlike fluorides.
✹ FINALLY, a medication is any drug or remedy used to treat a specific medical condition. Here the fluoride is being used as a medication to treat / dose, people, not to purify the water, in this case targeting their teeth. Medical ethics demand that such substances be given to people with the right of refusal (i.e. informed consent), and if consent is obtained the medication is provided with individual dose and other specific recommendations to control its use. This does not occur with water fluoridation, which is an unregulated dose. It is a totally irresponsible, unethical dogma, clumsy and unscientific and a dangerous precedent in medicine, it is based on ignorance and or deceit and is in contempt of social justice…
Member States of UNESCO, this includes Australia, are required to
recognize the absolute prohibition of non-consensual
medication, and to implement it into national law…
