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.

should have been spent  and research, into nutrition, vitamin K2 (menaquinone) the anti-caries properties of vanadium,  strontium 38 (not strontium 90), molybdenum, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, ‘good’ mouth bacteria (oral microbiological antibodies), and finally the ultimate – stimulation of gums to grow more teeth, – tissue engineering. 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.

Medical and dental schools need to update their text books

to keep up with recent overseas research on fluoridation.

  Calcium fluoride can be found naturally in some waters.  

It is almost insoluble and is not easily absorbed,

 but is a problem, see research paper and chart  ←

—oooOOOooo—

The chemicals mostly used to fluoridate drinking water are

waste products derived from the manufacture of

phosphate fertilizerFluorine is the most

reactive, electronegative element and

it’s never found alone in nature.

F)  A multi-million dollar U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)

      -funded study, found no relation between tooth decay and the

       amount of fluoride ingested by children.

G)  Fluoridation is a failure to apply the Precautionary Principle.

H)  It is a violation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the

       European Union  2000.

I)  Fluoride bio-accumulates.

J)  Water fluoridation is mass medication without prescription.

      The dosing of public water supply with fluoride is default medication,

      since you have to deliberately avoid it if you do not want to take it.

A person’s daily intake of fluoride simply from drinking

an average quantity of fluoridated tap water,

fluoridated bottled water, and beverages produced or

prepared with fluoridated water can easily exceed the

threshold for what your pharmacist would rightly

demand a prescription for.

K) Most of the industrialized world abandoned or dismissed this pseudo-scientific

practice decades ago, along with DDT, mercury, lead, thalidomide and asbestos usage.

L) The fluoride in toothpaste (and mouth rinses) is medication.

      It may be intended as topical, but the reality is different -

❝  No matter how carefully toothpaste may be applied to their teeth,

young children are going to swallow it. - Indeed, most of the

public and the dental profession already have !  

 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,

Oak Ridge, Tennessee – The City Behind the Fence

… Oak Ridge USA, the home of the largest chemical [ FLUORIDE ] accident in the USA. This one plant absorbed 25 percent of the Manhattan Project’s funding to try and keep hydrogen fluoride poison gas from getting loose on the workers and the region. This plant was code-named the K-25 Plant, after the Kellex Corp. This plant would become a doomsday device under the management of Union Carbide. The very same sloppy methods that caused the Bhopal Indian accident, also contributed to this huge fluoride poisoning disaster in Oak Ridge …

  FLUORIDE, TEETH, AND THE ATOMIC BOMB

  FLUORIDE & THE ATOM BOMB  

    About 95% of the depleted uranium

    produced to date is stored as

    Uranium Hexafluoride, DUF6

Depleted Uranium Is a Deceptive Term.

It is basically what’s left after enriched uranium is used for reactors.

But DU cannot be used in reactors anymore. DU is still highly radioactive, so using it for ammunition creates a lucrative industry instead of an expensive waste disposal issue. One gram of DU (1/20th of a cubic centimeter) releases 13,000 alpha particles a second. One alpha particle can causcancer under the right conditions and certainly it has the capacity to wreck havoc in beta cells and everywhere else…

FLUORINE  is a yellowish, poisonous, highly corrosive gas.

It is the most chemically active nonmetallic element

and is the most electronegative of all the

elements. Because of its extreme

reactivity, fluorine does not

occur uncombined

in nature.

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.

Further research is urgently3 + 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.

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

in the common hypothyroid disease, Hashimoto’s Disease and the hyperthyroidism of Graves’ Disease.

FLUORIDES & BROMINES ARE BOTH

ANTAGONISTS OF IODINE

… the removal of iodine caused more misery and death

   than both World Wars combined… 

     Guy E. Abraham MD

Bromine, in its various forms, like fluorides are antagonists of iodine. Bromines are in many

‘soft drinks’, breads, vegetable oils and medications. Years of drinking sodas [soft drinks

containing bromides] and brominated vegetable oils solidifies body fat resulting in

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

schizophrenia, delirium, and hallucinations…

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.

Conclusions:

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

FLUORIDE AND OBESITY:

In view of the above it can be presumed that obesity would be augmented in a fluoride environment. Australia is the most fluoridated country in the world. Obesity and related problems are rife in Australia – everyone points the finger at poor diet, but few researchers suspect fluoride and bromide contamination of our diet as part of the complication.

FLUORIDE / IODINE

IN A NUCLEAR DISASTER

❝ … 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

 →  ‘Fluoride The Ageing Factor’.  

… 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.

  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)

 (see obituary).

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)…

the damage caused by fluoride pollution.

UNTREATED TOXIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES

       (used to fluoridate drinking water)

  Na2SiF6 is a chemical compound formed by two atoms of Sodium,

  one atom of Silicon and six atoms of Fluorine.

 Know by the following names:

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.

SILICOFLUORIDES ARE CONTAMINATED

WITH A VARIETY OF TOXIC CHEMICALS:

Fluosiloxanes, Aluminium, Iron, Arsenic ,

Beryllium, Cadmium, Nickel, Lead 

Mercury, Chromium, Sulfides,

and Radionuclides.

 ARSENIC

It has been suggested that the addition of contaminants like arsenic is insignificant,

and it is not easily measured once diluted in drinking water.

Arsenic is classified as a Level ONE Carcinogen,

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.

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.

SILICOFLUORIDES

These radioactive elements are also present in Silicofluorides.

The two decay products of uranium –

RADON-222 [It is considered to be the second leading cause of lung cancer]

and POLONIUM-210 are dangerous and carcinogenic. 

The health risks are enormous, including:

bone cancer, internal organs destruction, brain damage and more.

Tobacco companies for 40 years have been concerned about

the public relationsand litigation problems posed by

  polonium-210 in cigarettes. 

 

Polunium-210 is soluble and is circulated through the body to every tissue and cell. The proof is that it can be found in the blood and urine of smokers. The circulating Polonium-210 causes genetic damage and early death from diseases reminiscent of early radiological pioneers: liver and bladder cancer, stomach ulcer, leukemia, cirrhosis of the liver, and cardiovascular diseases. The Surgeon General C. Everett Koop MD (USPHS) stated that radioactivity, rather than tar, accounts for at least 90% of all smoking-related lung cancers. – The Center for Disease Control stated “Americans are exposed to far more radiation from tobacco smoke than from any other source.” —

As little as 0.03 microcuries (6.8 trillionths of a gram) of

polonium-210 can be carcinogenic to humans

Alexander Litvinenko

The Death Of The Russian Former KGB (FSB) agent Alexander Litvinenko has been linked to the presence of a ‘major dose’ of radioactive Polonium-210 in his coffee. Traces of the radioactive substance were discovered at various locations in London visited by Mr. Litvinenko as well as in Russia and on two British Airways (BA) flights. His body was buried in a lead lined coffin.

         24 August 1929 – 11 November 2004

 Tests performed by a laboratory in Switzerland found significant

 traces of Polonium-210 on the late Palestinian leader’s clothes,

 adding a new twist to a case that has obsessed the Arab world for years.

 Polonium-210 is the same substance used to poison the

 Russian dissident Alexader Litvinenko in London.

The claims are likely to renew long-held Palestinian suspicions that the Israeli spy

agency Mossad assassinated Arafatwho died in a Paris hospital in November, 2004.

The Institute de Radiophysique in Lausanne found elevated levels of the element on 

Arafat’s personal effects. A urine stain in his underwear registered a level of

180 millibecquerels of Polonium-210, more than 20 times the dose to kill an

average human being. “I can confirm to you that we measured an unexplained,

elevated amount of unsupported Polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr Arafat

that contained stains of biological fluids,” Dr Francois Bochod, the director

of the institute, told Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab television station.

 Puff  by puff, the poison Polonium-210,

builds up to the equivalent radiation dosage of

300 chest x-rays a year for a person who smokes one and a half packs a day.

The presence of polonium in tobacco smoke has been known since the early 1960s.

Some of the world’s biggest tobacco firms researched ways to remove the

substance to no avail—over a 40-year period but never published the results.

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

L.H.Weinstein and A.W. Davison

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…

FLUORIDE IN PET FOOD:

Extract from:

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.

  Polytetrafluethylene  

Pet birds can die an extremely painful

and agonizing death when exposed to

fumes from Teflon Cookware (contains F.)

 polytetraflouethylene (PTFE).

“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.

  PFOA – A Proven Carcinogen  

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

WWII nerve gas phosgene…

Gold Coast Fluoridation commenced on

but changed her mind after she examined technical literature – Including

‘Fluoridation, 1979 by Philip R.N. Sutton.

Dr. (Sir) Llewellyn (Lew) Edwards, Minister for Health,

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. —

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.

FLUORIDATION – HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

AS CAN BE SEEN ON THIS WEB SITE AND MANY OTHERS, ANIMALS,

PLANTS AND HUMANS ARE OVER-EXPOSED TO FLUORIDE IN ITS

MANY FORMS FROM NUMEROUS HIDDEN SOURCES.

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.[27] 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.[28] 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.[29] 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 BiloelaDalbyGattonMareebaMoranbah, 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.[30] Before the current legislation the addition of fluoride to water supplies was regulated by the Fluoridation of Water Supplies Act 1963.[31]

The fluoridation of drinking water supplies is regulated by QueenslandHealth,[32] with implementation supported by the former Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation[33]

Several areas of Queensland, such as Julia CreekQuilpieThargomindah and Adavale are known to have naturally occurring fluoride present in their drinking water, a characteristic that has been studied since the late 1920s.[34] [35]

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.

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…”

Dr. WILLIAM MARCUS

Dr. William Marcus, the Former Chief Toxicologist of the

EPA’s Water Quality Program: ↓ ↓ 

Dr. Marcus was an EPA whistleblower who was fired after

publishing scientific reports on the toxicity of fluoride and

recommending that it be taken out of drinking water.

Dr. Marcus’ case was taken up by the Nation Whistleblower’s Center which protects government employees from retaliation for publishing damaging facts about the government. He fought a two year legal battle where it came out that EPA lied, shredded documents, and falsified documents in their campaign against him. EPA was ordered to reinstate Dr. Marcus and pay back wages and damages for its actions.It takes a brave (or retired) scientist or dentist to speak out against the discredited practice of artificial water fluoridation, without fear of censure, or reprisal, but now some are doing just that.

Water Fluoridation Targets Black Americans

THE NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION (USA)

NO LONGER ENDORSES FLUORIDATION:

“The 1981 NKF position paper on fluoridation is outdated.

The paper is withdrawn and will no longer be circulated,

 effective from the 10/06/07 – NKF Board of Director’s meeting.

 The safety margin for exposure to fluoride by renal patients is unknown, measurements of

fluoride levels are not routine, the onset of skeletal fluorosis is slow and insidious,

clinical symptoms of this skeletal disorder are vague, progression of renal

functional decline is multifactorial and physicians are unaware of

side effects of fluoride on kidneys or bone. 

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.

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…

Fluoride proponents, talk as if water is the sole source of this element, or that it is in short supply, but many Queenslanders are already at risk of absorbing too much fluoride from other sources. Fluoride use and emissions have become increasingly common in industry since the end of World War II. Apart from superphosphate factories, pollution from aluminium smelters, the nuclear industry – uranium hexafluoride, oil refineries, car exhausts, glass manufacture, burning of coal, pottery firing and steel production are major sources. Others are processed foods, some countries use fluoridated salt in their foodstuffs, soft drinks and fruit juices, canned foods, teas, pesticides, rodenticides, wood preservative some pharmaceutical drugs, welding fluxes fluoridated toothpastes and dental rinses. Fluoride pollution is widespread but is being ignored by the Queensland Government.

 OPTIMAL DOSE  

Adding fluorides to our drinking water at what is claimed to be the “optimal dose” will affect us all, INCLUDING YOU THE READER, to suffer fluoride at various levels. Fluoride promoters confuse the issue by setting a desired concentration 1 ppm of fluoride in the drinking water, — but this is a rate, not a dose. 

The dose is governed by the amount of treated water consumed by each individual. Population sub-groups like outdoor workers, diabetics, aboriginals, thyroid or kidney-impaired people and babies are the most vulnerable.

For ‘Queensland Health’ [Department] to talk of an “optimal dose” for fluoride in water is transparent humbug and spin because the dose of fluoride is uncontrolled, unmonitored and little understood in many respects. The “dose” one acquires from fluoridated water depends upon how much water each person drinks, which is a great variable, this cannot easily be measured and in practice is ignored, it is also dependent on climate, weather, latitude and in Queensland longitude. Epidemiological studies performed in Kenya and Tanzania have indicated that higher prevalence and severity of fluorosis may also be related to altitude…

If you believe you are at risk for any reason,

have your blood fluoride levels measured.

 …DENTAL FLUOROSIS - THE MOST COMMON

DENTAL DISEASE IN AUSTRALIA … ❞ 

It is a pathological condition. It affects humans and animals. First recorded on teeth of Mexicans in 1888.

Dental fluorosis also indicates the deposition of fluoride in the bones – skeletal fluorosis,

causing brittleness in later life, – especially hip fractures in humans. It can occur

after teeth formation, but will not be recorded on the teeth after they are formed.

It causes disfigurement, pitting, staining, positional defects, (malocclusion)  brittleness, and

facilitates decay. In these cases fluoride causes the exact problem it is supposed to prevent.

“More money is now spent in Canada treating ‘Dental Fluorosis than treating tooth decay.”

See our category on this web site ↓

  FLUOROSIS AND THE WAYS TO CONTAIN IT  

The eruption of teeth, animal and human, is delayed in the

presents of fluorides. This delay accounts for the

original statistical error – inferring that

fluoride reduces decay in children’s

teeth. It simply skews the data.

 Putting this stuff into drinking water,

is essentially a hazardous waste management tool.

It has nothing to do with dental health, whatsoever.

FLUORIDES – DO KILL

Fluorides are used to kill rodents, insects , wild dogs, termites, fleas and weeds. Chronic poisoning, from most toxic agents is rarely diagnosed by physicians in the initial stages. Most systemic poisons induce vague, subtle symptoms before the appearance of features characteristic of a particular kind of poisoning. For instance, the radial nerve paralysis or the lead line on the gums which are typical of lead poisoning are preceded by numerous vague symptoms such as lack of appetite, general fatigue, gastric pains, and bowel disorders. Similarly, the bone changes characteristic of chronic cadmium poisoning become apparent only after a prolonged, slowly progressive illness with changes in kidney function,

   George L. Waldbott MD.  

Chronic exposure to low doses of fluoride cause progressive health problems, larger doses derived from accidents, (terrorists!), or incompetence at treatment works can cause acute toxicity resulting in illness, disability or death. Such incidents are known but are under-reported, or played down, since authorities have a vested interest in suppressing the information, but there have been many over the years. For example, in Hooper Bay, Alaska, 260 people were poisoned and one man died after drinking water contaminated with 150 ppm of fluoride. The accident was attributed to poor equipment and an unqualified operator. Was this a fluke? No not at all. The US Centre for Disease Control has recorded a number of such incidents where human error or equipment failure resulted in a toxic dose of fluoride. (Brisbane, May 2009.)

http://robertmijas.com/blog/breaking-fluoride-linked-to-1-cause-of-death-in-new-research/

Distributing fluoride evenly via kilometers of the complex system of trunk mains, water pipes,

and control valves is a hydraulic imposibility. Readings [Fluoride concentrations] taken at

various locations in the water supply system will vary. Dead-ends will often read very high.

Because fluorides are corrosive, fibro mains will release asbestos, concrete lined pipes will

absorb some fluoride, erode, and reset the concrete down-line during low use times

(slow flow), forming partial blockages at bends and junctions. Corrosion in domestic pipes,

water meters, hot water systems, washing machines, fire mains, valves and back-flow

prevention equipment, will be accelerated. The concentration of fluorides in cooling towers

(air conditioning.) will increase due to evaporation, therefor increasing corrosion rates with

GREATER risk of legionnaire’s disease.  

      which breeds under the corrosion.

Accelerated corrosion/rust can also result in staining of water (laundry). Fluoride will leach various heavy metals into the water, from lead solder joints, copper, brass and plastic fittings. The risk of leaks, spills, burst water mains, and-over feeds, and subsequent political cover-ups, is historic and to be expected as occurred in Brisbane, May 2009.  - Fluoride is tasteless but can release ‘tastes’ from pipes etc.  Some of Brisbane’s old water mains contain lead, which the fluorides will release.

- San Francisco – on 29 November 1960 a 200-foot portion of a 50-foot wide street collapsed after an almost-new water main burst. After an analysis of the pipe by Griffin-Hasson laboratories in Los Angeles, it was discovered that fluoridation chemicals had corroded the pipe, which showed a fluoride concentration of 22,000 ppm on the pipe.

Even if fluoridation gave us all the best teeth in the cemetery,

it should be stopped due to the damage to water infrastructure.

Queensland Health [Department] funded The Australian Dental

Association Queensland Branch, $220,000 as a CONtribution to its

  pro-fluoridation campaign.  

The request for this funding was

directed to the Hon. Stephen Robertson MP.

The Lord Mayor’s Taskforce 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. However, if the required data gathering and research were carried out, the Taskforce could be reconvened to consider any new evidence.  

  INFANTS SHOULD NOT HAVE FLUORIDATED WATER

Baby formula may have contained fluoride before being dried.

Adding tap water containing fluoride will increased the dose.

No infant should be exposed to fluoride, as the blood

brain barrier is not yet fully developed.

The Queensland Government Has A

Responsibility To Warn Parents…

   Please do not let me down   

Since 2006 the American Dental Association, dental researchers,

and medical organizations throughout North America have

recommended that infants NOT consume fluoridated water in an

effort to reduce the risk of fluorosis.  While dentists have been

warned by the ADA, little has been done to warn the general

public or government officials.

We believe that if the state or council adds fluoride to the water,

it has the responsibility to at least disclose it to customers, and

act to protect the most vulnerable population–our children–by

warning parents about the risk of fluorosis.

FLUORIDE FACILITATES THE UPTAKE OF

ALUMINUM BY THE BRAIN

Aluminum salts (especially aluminum sulphate), are added to help

clarify the raw water at many municipal water treatment plants.

Several studies (1990’s) showed that aluminum uptake by brains of experimental animals doubled in the presence of fluoride. Rats fed the highest doses developed behavior similar to that of senile animals and their brains at post-mortem showed cell loss and other damage characteristic of dementia (Alzheimer’s disease). Since approximately half our population over 70 will eventually develop Alzheimer’s, based on US figures, this link needs to be explored in Australia. (The world will spend roughly $604 billion in 2010 to treat dementia.)

Firstly, because a large proportion of our population has been forced to

drink fluoridated water for a long period.

EXPOSURE TO FLUORIDE REDUCES IQ

There are now over 20 published studies, including

7 in the last 5 years, reporting an association between

high fluoride exposure and reduced IQ.

(intelligence capacity), [M. Connett & H. Limeback.

2008. Int Assn Dent Res 83rd Gen Session & Exhibn].

…Overall, the behavioral changes from fluoride exposure are consistent with interrupted hippocampal development… This is the first laboratory study to demonstrate that central nervous system functional output is vulnerable to fluoride, and that the effects on behavior depend on age at exposure and that fluoride accumulates in brain tissues…

Some of these studies were overlooked previously as they are in Chinese science journals, but they are of great concern to us because even in the absence of fluoridated water, our citizens, especially children, can absorb excess fluoride from their diet, toothpaste and environmental pollution. Babies are most at risk from early exposure to fluoride as their brains are still developing and therefore susceptible to interference from toxic chemicals, (fluoride crosses the blood brain barrier and reaches the pineal gland ).

CHILD EXPOSURE TO FLUORIDE:

Pre-natal resulting in hyper activity;

Post-natal resulting in hypo activity.

The US Centre for Disease Control now advises artificially fluoridated

water should not be used for infants under one year old.

Babies can drink up to four times that of an adult in

ratio to their body weight. Breast milk – even

when the feeding mother is on a high

fluoride diet, low fluoride

breast milk prevails,

nature knows best !

Food processing often concentrates fluoride, and foods processed with fluoridated water typically have higher fluoride concentrations than foods processed with non-fluoridated water… A study that found marked differences between cereals processed in fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas showed that cereals processed in a fluoridated area had fluoride concentrations ranging from 3.8 ppm to 6.3 ppm…” – Warren JJ, Levy SM. (2003). Current and future role of fluoride in nutrition – Dental Clinics of North America 47: 225-43.

Chinese studies have shown that fluoride lowers IQ levels in children; that fluoride may affect the intelligence of a person as early as “embryonic life or infancy, when the growth of the nervous system is most rapid.” Since fluoride levels in the body are cumulative, and fluoride intake lowers intelligence, the end result is a population with little ability to evolve.”

We cannot afford to have current and future generations “dumbed down” by a process, which is avoidable. Google searches will give access many of these research papers and the science behind them.

Mainland European countries have abandoned, rejected, or banned fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, ethical concerns or that it is unsafe and/or ineffective. Most countries have never taken it up. In 1971, after 11 years of testing, Sweden’s Nobel Medical Institute recommended against fluoridation and the process was banned. The Netherlands outlawed the practice in 1976, after 23 years of tests. France decided against it after consulting its Pasteur Institute, and West Germany, now Germany, rejected the practice because the recommended concentration in water of 1 ppm was “too close to that at which long-term damage to the human body is to be expected”. In other words, there is no margin of safety, as is understood by informed members of the medical profession, in the practice of fluoridation but this precaution is lost on many dentists and others actively involved in promoting water fluoridation.

 After 41 years, Basel the only city in Switzerland to fluoridate its water ceased. 

In Europe more than 53 million people who had water fluoridation for many years are now free from it.

There is no artificial fluoridation in India, (According to a UNICEF study, across the developing world fluorosis is endemic in at least 25 countries, with perhaps hundreds of millions of people affected. As long ago as 1993, according to one study, 20 of India’s 32 states were identified as facing problems from natural fluoride. Fluorosis was recorded in Andhra Pradesh as early as the 1930s.) Japan, China, Russia, Mainland Europe or Sri Lanka.

There are now only 6 countries

where the majority of people are forced to drink fluoridated water:

USA, Australia, NZ, Ireland, Columbia and Singapore.

Health Minister Yael German has decided to end the

mandatory fluoridation of Israel’s drinking water within a year. (9 April 2014)

(NaturalNews) Israel’s Ministry of Health has made a bold ruling against artificial water fluoridation, reversing more than 15 years of forced poisoning via public water supplies in the Middle Eastern country. A recent announcement by Israel’s Supreme Court has declared that a 1974 law permitting — and a later 1998 law requiring — all public water supplies in Israel to be fluoridated are both outdated and invalid, and that all current fluoridation programs in the country will have to end by April 9, 2014, in order to comply with new public safety requirements.

The welcomed ruling came after a petition filed last year by two dedicated individuals, including a representative of Israel’s Association for Dissemination of Health Education, brought to light numerous dangers associated with water fluoridation. These include lowered IQ, brittle bones and teeth and damage to the thyroid gland, serious side effects that are hardly justified by the flimsy and antiquated arguments claiming that ingested fluoride somehow helps prevent tooth decay.

The three Israeli Supreme Court justices who heard the case, along with Israeli Health Minister Yael German, took all this information to task and ultimately concluded that fluoride is, indeed, a public health threat and provides minimal, if any, health benefit to society. In his ruling, Justice D. Barak-Erez ordered the cessation of all water fluoridation programs throughout Israel by 2014, emphasizing the fact that water fluoridation is dangerous, and the science defending it is outdated and “no longer widely accepted.

The cost to ordinary citizens for abandoning the public water system or purchasing expensive reverse osmosis or distillation equipment, because simple filtration will not remove fluoride, is an unfair burden placed on all segments of populations but especially the least able to afford.

• USA  - As a packaged food product, comprehensively regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), bottled water labels must contain the name and place of business of the bottler, packer or distributor, and virtually all bottled water products provide a telephone number. With this information, consumers may contact the bottled water company directly to obtain information about the product. Bottled water companies must also follow fluoride labeling guidelines should fluoride be added to the product or be present at a naturally occurring level as set for the by FDA regulation (21C.F.R. §165.110(b).

✹  ONLY a 0.0001 micron membrane will remove fluoride,

however the 0.0002 micron membranes which are being imported from Asia will not.

(RO filtration will not remove lithium.)

TOTAL AVOIDANCE IS IMPOSSIBLE:

Showering/Bathing and Clothes Washing will

Boiling water will NOT remove fluoride; indeed it will

HOW TO MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE

FROM DRINKING FLUORIDATED WATER:

Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Iodine, (Bromide used in bread making and PBDEs [flame retardants] like fluorides are toxic antagonists of Iodine and interfere with thyroid function. Fluoride was commonly used to treat HYPERthyroidism in the early and mid-1900s at doses commonly ingested by people today)

Shilajit [minerals], Boron and Strontium, (not Strontium-90) will need to part of the diet of every one who is concerned about this problem. “Boron effectively counteracts symptoms of fluoride intoxication in humans (Zhou et al. 1987) and in experimentally poisoned rabbits (Elsair et al. 1980a, 1980b, 1981). Humans suffering from skeletal fluorosis experienced 50 to 80% improvement after drinking solutions containing 300 to 1,100 mg of borax/L daily, 3 weeks a month for 3 months (Zhou et al. 1987). Boron enhances sequestration of fluoride from bone and excretion through kidneys and possibly the intestinal tract (Elair et al. 1980a, 1981).

Borax is a compound form of boron, with oxygen and sodium attached. (However EXCESS BORON CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS. Conditions like ADHD, dyslexia, autism, asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, liver and oseophageal cancer can be triggered or made worse with excess boron. Boron increases estrogen and calcium levels and lowers B6, zinc, and blood glucose. Signs of toxicity are nausea, vomiting, lethargy, dermatitis and diarrhea. The antidote is extra vitamin B2. – 

“Boron, Phenols and Health” 1995 by Mary Duncan.)

Tamarind (Tamarindus indicus) intake is likely to help in delaying progression

of fluorosis by enhancing urinary excretion of fluoride. (Grows well in SE Qld.)

Societies with poor diets are at greatest risk from fluoride damage, indeed nutrition explains the great variation in damage between individuals, especially variations of vitamin C status.

Fluorinated anesthetics such as, Isoflurane, Enflurane, and Sevoflurane will

produce high peak levels of fluoride in blood for up to 24 hours.

EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS

Experimental animals need to be guinea pigs –  Cavia porcellus.

Guinea pigs like humans do NOT make vitamin C in their livers. Lab. rats and mice

will increase their vitamin C production to overcome the damage from F.

or many other poisons or drugs being tested on them, and therefore

 USING THESE ANIMALS WILL YIELD FALSE TEST RESULTS

Organising daily life around any of the above is intelligent but necessitates various levels of determination, knowledge, restrictions and a financial burden. – Water from outside the home e.g. work, friends, beer, bread, canned food and drinks, restaurant cooked food and coffee shops etc., will contain fluoride. Therefore most Queenslanders will have no choice but to be exposed to the accumulating hazards of fluoridated water.

The only thing you can add to water that will not contaminate it — is more water.

CONSIDERATIONS LEGAL:

Dr. Jeannette Young – from our

Chief Health Officer for Queensland

Dr. Jeannette Young Is an appointee to AHMAC Clinical,

Fluoridation is incompatible with:

UNESCO – Legal Instruments –

Universal Declaration on Bioethics

and Human Rights

19 October 2005

Article 6 – Consent:

     1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried

out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate

— NATIONAL SECURITY —

Farmers in Australia for reasons

of national security (terrorism) are

required to keep fertilizers under lock and key.

Fluoridation plants and the stored silicofluorides need to be

under greater security against terrorists, and constructed high above flood level.

Back-flow prevention equipment, (anti-siphon) costing thousands of dollars is legally required to be installed by all hazardous industries and irrigators to protect our water supply. Yet amazingly the Queensland Government spend millions of tax dollars installing machinery to deliberately inject imported toxic industrial waste, Silicofluorides, directly into our drinking water supply?

If a private citizen deliberately adds poisonous products to our drinking water,

or an industry accidentally were to so, a jail sentence would be expected.

If a politician deliberately adds poisonous (waste) products to our

drinking water a jail sentence should also apply…

Local councils need to keep accurate records that they did everything in their power to protect the health of their communities under ‘duty of care’ not to poison residents… regardless of ‘orders’ from the State Governments, or pressure from the dental mafia.

   All the promoters of  water fluoridation may be personally liable.

Ignorance is no excuse in law. You are put on notice.

European Court of Justice:

 Fluoridated Water Must Be Treated As A Medicine,

And Cannot Be Used To Prepare Foods. 

That is the decision of the European Court of Justice, in a landmark case dealing with the classification and regulation of ‘functional drinks’ in member states of the European Community. (HLH Warenvertriebs and Orthica (Joined Cases C-211/03, C-299/03, C-316/03 and C-318/03) 9 June 2005).  –

See Brisbane Courier Mail 28/07/2009

Implications For International Trade

In Food Products—

This ruling also has an equally profound implication for export trade in processed foods and drinks. The Court stated that even if a functional food product (or a food containing it) is legally marketed as a food in one member state, it cannot be exported to any other member state unless it has a medicinal license. So any company making a consumable product using fluoridated water in its preparation or as an ingredient cannot now export that product to any other state in the EC, even if their product is permitted in their home state. 

The economic implications are enormous. Not only does the ruling ban the use of fluoridated water for all retail catering and wholesale food processing in the UK and Ireland, (Guinness!) it also prohibits such trade from these states to other member states of the EC. But it goes much further than even this, because if British and Irish processed foods from fluoridated areas cannot be exported to the EC, this prohibition must also apply to the importing of such products into EC member states from any other country that practices water fluoridation. The decision effectively bans all processed food products from countries such as the USA, Australia and New Zealand, unless these foods can be proven to have been prepared using water that was not fluoridated…

SOME FINAL COMMENTS:

  KEEP UP TO DATE – FLUORIDATION NEWS FLASHES  

The very agencies that are supposed to protect us have

a vested in maintaining this historic deception.

Loads of money and political careers are at stake… Citizens have an

expectation that their governments will supply them with clean

drinking water. We certainly do not expect it to be

deliberately contaminated and or

medicated by them…

The tenets of informed consent has roots in 2,000 year-old

medical ethics, and are now codified as law.

 NO INSURANCE FOR PROMOTERS OF FLUORIDATION

Fluoridation is mass medication, it is against freedom of choice, is a

violation of our democratic rights, and is in breach of many

international laws including -The Nuremberg Code:

   It is not the function of our Government

to keep the citizen from falling into error, 


It is the function of the citizen to keep the

Government from falling into error.

Copy of Fluoride Death Certificate
 

FROM → ORIGINAL HAND WRITTEN LETTER  ← HERE

My husband and I have agreed on writing this letter in the hope that it may prevent someone going through the experience we suffered in May 1973.

In July 1970 we were told by our doctor that we were going to have a baby.  In my first visit to the Hospital for a check-up in October, I was told by the Matron to start taking fluoride tablets for the benefit of the baby.  I did so until the 20th of February 1971 when our first child, Jason, was born.

When he was one year old the welfare clinic told me to start giving him 1/2 of a fluoride tablet per day.  I did so for 15 months.  When he was 27 months old he got hold of the fluoride tablets, and at the time I didn´t know how many he had eaten, but I knew it wasn´t many.

I took him to the doctor straight away and he gave our son a stomach pump treatment.  The doctor told me he could only find four tablets in his stomach.  I was told to take him home and he would sleep for a while, but he would be okay when he woke up.  This was at 2:00 P.M.

At 5:30 P.M. I realized that something was wrong, as I couldn´t wake him.  I rang the doctor and was advised to take him back to the surgery.  The doctor saw him staright away and told me to take him to the maternity hospital.  As we arrived he was still unconscious and he stopped breathing.  The doctor put him in a respirator immediately.

The doctor and the nurses didn´t believe that he could be so ill from taking fluoride tablets until they did some test on him.  They told us it would take 200 to 500 tablets to make him so sick.  There were less than 100 tablets in the bottle before he touched it.

On May 15th, five days after admission, Jason passed away.

The doctor verified that his brain, due to fluoride poisoning, was completely dead.

We have now two children.  They have never or will never receive fluoride tablets

from us. We are completely against fluoridation of drinking water and

we hope that this letter will help stop such a thing from happening.

Kerry we  are pleased about your stance on tobacco, however, it would seem that you are

Tobacco companies for 40 years have been concerned about the public relations and litigation

Lloyds of London have ruled that fluoridation is the new asbestosis.

In a recent letter from Zurich Insurance, one of the principle insurers of

Councils for any claims against them for damage caused to members

of the public arising from water fluoridation.

This a significant problem for Health Professionals

FLUORIDE THE NEXT ASBESTOS ?

  Date: 19 May 2013

  Subject:

Qld. MP LABELS FLUORIDE THE NEXT ASBESTOS!

 

Dear All,

Good to see that somebody appears to take notice of what I write! MP Jason Woodforth’s [Qld  State Gov.] warning that “Fluoride is the next asbestos!” is a direct quote from an article that I published on our web site on 22nd June 2011 (see final paragraph of ‘A disreputable trade-off: SCHER ignores the humanitarian impacts of water fluoridation.’, at

 http://www.ukcaf.org/_schers_final_report.html )

Since this is such an important claim, it’s worth recording precisely where that statement came from, so that anyone wishing to repeat it can substantiate its provenance.

In the summer of 2004 I had a meeting in London with Marie-Louise Rossi. She was the Chief Executive of the International Underwriting Association, and had a formal conference with her and some of her Associates at the IUA’s London Headquarters. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the insurance implications of the provable harm caused to children by water fluoridation. We did not discuss any of the more controversial health concerns of the practice, confining the discussion almost exclusively to the implications of the very large proportion of children known to develop this disfiguring condition.

I explained to the meeting the legal problems that are involved with this form of compulsory medication, and the issues of liability that inevitably emerge, especially for any Council, Health Authority or any other public servant that becomes involved in the imposition of this damaging, unethical and illegal form of medical assault.

And as I went through the information that I had prepared for the IUA, Ms. Rossi became more and more concerned. Eventually she blurted out, “My God! This is the next asbestos!” That’s where Mr Woodforth’s statement originated, from the very top of the Underwriting sector, and specifically in relation to water fluoridation. So now you know – and if anyone challenges that comment, I can verify to you now that this is indeed the original source.

So what does this mean for you in Australia now, and indeed, pretty well everywhere else in the world where this form of uninsurable activity is carried out? Well, here’s how it works.

When a member of the public makes any claim against an insured person or corporation, and an award is either agreed or awarded by a Court against the respondent, it is generally their insurers who will have to foot the bill – always assuming that they actually have insurance cover. So ultimately, whilst the insurers write the policies, the risk is usually reinsured through guarantees provided by professional underwriters, acting in the interests of their investors. There’s a hierarchy of people who agree to provide finance that is used to insure against claims. These investors hope that, provided the insurers do their sums right then they, the investors, will eventually make a profit.

But suppose that an insurer fails to understand the risk of an activity in which one of its clients is engaged, and the insured does not disclose – or even recognise – that what they are doing may eventually result in a claim at some later date? Then the investors have a big problem – if the insurer gets it wrong, then ultimately they have to fork out the cash.

That’s precisely what happened to the ‘Names’ (the investors) of Lloyds of London in the 1990s, over the asbestosis/mesothelioma claims, which were bought many years after exposure under employers’ liability or workers’ compensation insurances. As Wikipedia explains the insurer did not understand the full nature of the future risk back in the 1960s, it and its reinsurers would not have properly reserved for it. In the case of Lloyd’s this resulted in the bankruptcy of thousands of individual investors who indemnified [under 'reinsurance-to-close'] general liability insurance written from the 1940s to the mid-1970s for companies with exposure to asbestosis claims.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lloyd%27s_of_London

And this is why Ms Rossi and the International Underwriting Association were so concerned at hearing what I had to tell them about the public risks of damage from water fluoridation. Within the Health Sector, most health professionals and authorities are required to carry Professional Indemnity Insurance against claims brought against them by patients and others. Insurers will not cover ‘foreseeable risks’ – that is, any activity that, if engaged in by a Client, has a very high probability of resulting in claims against the insurer. (In the UK the government insures itself for claims against to National Health Service, but hey! it’s not their money anyway!) But individual health professionals can still get hit for private actions – remember that if you are a Dental Officer pushing fluoride outside office hours!

And as we are all well aware, dental fluorosis of at least some detectable level affects around half of all children exposed to fluoridated water during their early childhood (York Review of Water Fluoridation, 2000). Around one in eight kids will get it so badly that they need cosmetic dental treatment for the rest of their lives. In the UK the lifetime costs are an average of around £30,000 – about the same as the cost of getting a university education.

So, as a foreseeable risk, anyone engaged in any professional or business capacity whatever in the promotion of implementation of fluoridation may be personally liable for the costs. Insurers will start to recognise it as a foreseeable risk and refuse to cover it under professional indemnity or public liability insurance.

And yes, we do have proof of this: 

In a recent letter from Zurich Insurance, one of the

principal insurers of Local Authorities in the UK,

the company confirms that it will not indemnify

Councils for any claims against them for

damage caused to members of

the public arising from

water fluoridation.

Is this a significant problem for Health Professionals and Councils advocating

fluoridation, or even forcing fluoridation on unwilling communities?

Absolutely! Here’s what happened to Lloyds of London ‘Names’

over the asbestos scandal:

Lloyd’s set up a separate vehicle known as Equitas in 1996 to handle asbestos-related claims. This was effectively acquired by Berkshire Hathaway a decade later amid fears it was running out of funds. Warren Buffett’s investment vehicle agreed to take on Equitas’ staff, operations, liabilities and most of its assets. It also agreed to provide up to £3.7bn in reinsurance cover, therefore protecting Equitas against the risk of larger-than-expected claims. Lloyd’s provided £90m as part of the deal. Although most of the Names paid up and agreed to this scheme to reinsure their debt, 1,200 refused. About 200 of this second group responded by launching a counter-suit for compensation, which claimed that Lloyd’s brochures had led them to believe that the cover, called Reinsurance To Close (RITC), completely ended their liabilities at the end of each underwriting year. The names spent years battling against Lloyd’s in the courts, claiming they had been misled over insurance deals they bought into prior to the market’s near collapse. The High Court eventually ruled against them in July 2008, a decision which was upheld by the Court of Appeal. In June 2009, a final group of 35 individuals were declared bankrupt in the High Court.

(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/insurance/8463871/How-asbestos-brought-Lloyds-of-London-to-its-knees-in-the-90s.html)

ARE YOU COVERED 

If you think about that in relation to fluoridation, you’ll realise just why Ms Rossi and the IUA were so alarmed at what I told them. The numbers of people affected by asbestos run into hundreds of thousands; ‘dental fluorosis of  aesthetic concern’ (mild and worse) affects at least 10,000 children every year in the UK alone, and far more elsewhere. Regarding the risks from exposure to asbestos, the UK’s Health and Safety Executive considers that there is no minimum threshold that exists for exposure to asbestos below which a person is at zero risk of developing mesothelioma. Remarkably, the EU’s SCHER came to precisely that same view regarding the risks of damage to human teeth and bones caused by fluoridation only a couple of years ago!

We are talking about big money here – in the UK alone, if all kids needing cosmetic dental treatment actually found the money to pay for it, then the dental profession would rake in around an additional £300 million in new income every year for as long as fluoridation continues. And our intellectually compromised British government actually aims to quadruple the extent of water fluoridation as soon as it can get past the obstacles of inconveniently unconvinced members of the public (us ‘Activists’, as Queensland Health likes to label folk like me! Bur hey! – who wants to be a ‘pacifist’ anyway?), and the curiously slippery water companies, who just can’t seem to get their plans to the point at which they can actually start new schemes.

Make no mistake about this – if the insurance sector is getting cold feet about covering those who aspire to poison our kids, and cause them grief – especially financial grief – that will result in claims for compensation, then they are not going to carry the can for this one. The fluoride advocates will find themselves in the same boat as those unfortunate ‘Names’ at Lloyds of London who were unwittingly caught out by the asbestos disaster.

When the next asbestos hits, this time from the very water that pours from the faucets in your own homes, both you and the Health Authorities and Councils will be on your own. So heed Mr. Woodforth’s warning and make sure that those pushing fluoride at you are aware that everything that they own could soon be at risk. The insurers will be out through the door like rats up a drainpipe, leaving you to hold the baby.

In case you think that you can ignore Ms. Rossi’s concern,

here’s what her CV says about her:

Marie-Louise Rossi: 

Over three decades in the City of London, Marie-Louise has developed an expertise in many areas including insurance. For over eleven years she worked as Chief Executive of the International Underwriting Association (and its predecessor) representing over £11bn pa of international insurance and reinsurance markets to governments and international institutions worldwide. Marie-Louise has worked closely with the EU Commission  and the European Parliament, as well as with the then DTI and the CBI. She was Head of Insurance and Risk Management for the New Security Foundation (formerly NATO forum for Business and Security) and was the author of The Single Market in Insurance (1992).

SOME MINERAL DEFICIENCIES AND EXCESSES

IN CATTLE AND SHEEP IN BRITAIN

By

RUTH ALLCROFT, Senior Research Officer, Veterinary Laboratory,

Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food,

Weybridge, Surrey, England.

Although the production of good pasture is a starting point,

one end point is a prime, healthy animal.

At Weybridge, we have many animal health problems associated wrth the grazing of apparently good pastures, and it is some of these problems that I propose to discuss this afternoon:

Fluorine

The problem of fluorosis in farm animals in Britain is not due to the high fluorine content of rock phosphate deposits, volcanic soils, or water supplies, but arises from the emission of fluorine containing gases and dusts from industrial plants. If the density of our industrial areas is considered in relation to the relatively small area of the whole country, it can be readily understood that a great deal of agricultural land must be adjacent to industrial works.

The chief sources of fluorine contamination of grassland and crops are:

(1) steel and metal works when the method of production involves the use of large amounts of fluorspar as a flux;

(2) brickworks, where the source is usually the local clay, although coal is sometimes a contributory factor;

(3) production of aluminium by the electrolytic reduction of alumina;

(4) glass, enamel, and colour works where fluorine compounds are often added to facilitate melting and to give the finished products certain properties ;

(5) the calcining of iron-stone where the sourtie is mainly the fluorine-rich ore itself;

(6) potteries and other ceramic industries where the materials used in manufacture are high in fluorine;

(7) collieries, power stations and other industries which consume large quantities of pulverised low-grade coal with a high fluorine content.

It is generally accepted that the fluorine content of most plants, with the exception of the roots, is not readily affected by the amount of fluorine in the soil. There seem to be a few exceptions to this, not- ably the tea plant. and the camellia, which appear to be fluorine collectors, but common fluorine values for

The chief chemical sign of fluorosis in severely affected cattle is lameness, which is frequently associated with marked skeletal abnormalities such as an increase in diameter of bones and well defined exostoses. Enlargement and gross exostoses in bovine limb bones (left) compared with normal bones -(right).

uncontaminated animal foodstuffs lie between 1 and 10 p.p.m. on a dry matter basis. Excessively high values’ up to 2000 p.p.m. have been reported (Green 1946) on herbage near sources of emission of fluorine compounds. Herbage and soil samples provide useful corroboration, but are not suitable alone for assessing degree and extent of contamination, since results will depend on climatic conditions around the time of sampling, on the direction of the prevailing winds, and on the topography of the surrounding terrain. It is difficult to suggest a minimum fluorine value for contaminated pastures at which clinical cases of fluorosis will occur, because of the variable factors first mentioned, and because the all-important factor is the length of time over which the foodstuff is consumed at any particular level of contamination. And since development of clinical symptoms is slow, a pasture analysis only demonstrates that contamination is present;

it cannot give a direct correlation of the degree of fluorosis in the animal.

Present evidence suggests that the order of susceptibility of farm animals to fluorosis is calves, dairy cows, other bovines, sheep, pigs, horses, and poultry, but this order may be revised when comparative tests on a known and comparable body weight intake have been carried out, The chief clinical ,symptom in severely affected cattle is lameness, and it is this which usually suggests the possibility of fluorosis and leads to a closer investigation of the herd. The lameness is frequently associated with marked skeletal abnormalities such as an increase in diameter of limb bones and welldefined exostoses. Dental lesions in the permanent teeth of cattle reared on affected farms are one of the best indications of the presence and degree of fluorosis. They include loss of lustre, pitting, staining in parts of the defective enamel, and excessive and irregular wear. Clinical diagnosis can be confirmed by determination of the fluorine content of urine and bone samples.

Although the total economic loss due to fluorosis is not great when considered in relation to that.caused by the major transmissible diseases, it is a matter of serious concern in affected areas and methods of control are being studied both by industry and agriculture. Reduction of emission can be achieved to some extent in some industries by trapping and washing the dusts and gases, but in others the practical difficulties and the costs would be so great that it is unlikely that efficient devices could be installed. Some degree of agricultural control can be achieved by farming with the fluorine hazard in view, e.g., improvement of pas- ture management, limitation of grazing periods; keep- ing pigs and poultry instead of cattle and sheep, or using the land for production of crops only. The possibility of alleviating the effects of fluorosis in cattle by feeding certain mineral supplements is also being investigated by the Ministry on an experimental farm on which fluorosis occurs.

DISCUSSION

Col. Stafford, Springston: You have just listened to the most lucid speech on the deficiencies. of a number’ of elements which are essential to animal life. Now it has been stated that the nH of a good nasture soil.runs between 6.5 and 7. I can oniy give you a-little .of my own experience; once you get the pH over 7, as you do where lime has been put on the land in excess, then you get disastrous results in ,bone formation, especially in young stock. I must congratulate the speaker on a wonderful paper.

Q. Does Dr Allcroft know of any cases where farmers whose stock have been affected by fluorosis obtained compensation against the particular industrial enterprise which has been the cause of it?

A. Do you mean as a result of a legal claim or do you mean as a result of private negotiations between farmer and industry?

Q. I am concerned with’ the common Iaw right.

A. I do know of cases. Some industries do, by private arrangement, pay compensation to farmers whose land is -adjacent and is severely contaminated.

Q. What is the reason for the incidence of increased grass staggers on pastures fertilised with nitrogen in the early ipring ?

A. We have no explanation. The increased incidence is not only confined to pastures treated with nitrogen. We have found that by topdressing those. pastures with magnesite it increases the magnesium uptake. of the pasture. The incidence of staggers has been reduced but the incidence cannot be correlated with magnesium content alone, although it was beneficial in the cases we tried.

Q. if crops are grown where there is fluorine contamination do they take up the fluorine and pass the trouble on to somebody else ?

A. No, it is not a case of passing it on to somebody else. It has been shown that most plants do not take up fluorine from the soil. There are two exceptions: the tea plant and the camellia which appear to be fluorine collectors. Most grasses and root crops do not take:it up from soils. It is mostly a question of. contamination of the surface;, there- fore humans get off lightly because we do not eat grass. The inner parts of cabbages and similar. crops are not high in fluorine, only the outer coverings which are .removed. Cereal grains are also quite safe.

Is fluorine cumulative ? Can small quantities be safely absorbed over long periods or will they produce clinical symptoms ? It is sometimes the practice to add fluorine to drinking water.

Yes, it is cumulative, but if the intake is sn~all~animals cattle do seem to be able to stand considerable amounts without any adverse clinical symptoms at all. If they are continually exposed to it there will be a gradual build-up to three or four thousand parts per million. A concentration of five to six hundred parts per million is normal. It usually takes several years before you get clinical symptoms, then they first show as dental lesions.

Short of clinical symptoms such as swayback are young sheep affected by a deficiency of copper ?

I do not think so; we have not associated any. loss of con- dition in young sheep with copper deficiency.

How and when were the magnesites and dolomites applied to the pastures ?

The magnesite was applied during the spring. The dolo- mite we have applied on two occasions, one in the autumn and the other in the spring. We found on some plots that just one application in spring-February-March-was quite sufficient.

Were the copper injections to cattle as satisfactory as the application of copper to pasture; also if they are satisfactory are they satisfactory in the case of molybdenum excess as well as simply copper deficiency? or

We do not usually apply copper to the pastures. It is normally always given as oral supplement or intravenous injection; in sheep always as oral supplement. We have tried an application of copper sulphate to cattle pasture in peaty areas in Scotland and found the effect wore off after six months. Most farmers prefer oral supplements or intravenous injections rather than topdressing of pas- tures. They are apprehensive about using copper for top- dressing pastures because of the toxicity to sheep. Assuming that all our pastures where copper deficiency occurs are used both for cattle and sheep grazing we have not pushed the use’of copper sulphate on pastures.

H. van Rensburg: Would water containing more than 30 parts per million of fluorine have detrimental effects on cattle, and how soon ? The problem occurs in Tanganyika where we have very high percentages of fluorine in the water and would like to hold young cattle -on the areas for 6-18 months. How long could we safely keep them there?

Dr Allcroft : With 30 parts per million in the drinking water you would get clinical effects if you keep them there for 18 months. You could expect to get severe dental lesions in the permanent teeth when they came through. If they were then removed and spent the rest of their lives away from it, they might not be so bad, but still there would be .harmful effects. Do you have to keep them there that length of time?

H. van Rensburg: We have not kept them in this specific area for any length of time,. but in other areas. where~there is a high fluorine content in the water it is very noticeable amongst stock -and humans that their teeth are severely affected. Conditions I am referring to would only apply to cattle afterwards drafted to market for slaughter.

“CANCER INCREASED IN FLUORIDATED CITIES” – Supreme Court Judge

Sunday, April 7, 2013 Posted by

“ CANCER INCREASED IN FLUORIDATED CITIES ” 

—  CITY SUED OVER FLUORIDATION —

Judge John P. Flaherty, [ on right ]

Now a Supreme Court Judge presided over the trial in the case of

Paul Aitkenhead v. Borough of West View, No. GD-4585-78.

The city was sued over fluoridation. On 16 November 1978,

Judge Flaherty handed down his decree. The critical

parts of his opinion read as follows:

❝ Over the course of five months, the court held periodic hearings, which consisted of extensive expert testimony from as far away as England. At issue was the most recent time-trend study of Dr. Burk and Dr. Yiamouyiannis, which compared cancer mortality in ten cities which fluoridated their water systems with ten cities which did not fluoridate over a period of twenty-eight years from 1940 to 1968.

The study concluded that there was a significant

increase in cancer mortality

in the fluoridated cities.

Contrary to what has been said by promoters of artificial fluoridation of public water supplies, Judge Flaherty’s jurisdiction to make and enter his findings on November 16, 1978 was expressly sustained and upheld as appears in Aitkenhead v. West View, 397 Atl. 2d 878 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1979). Nor were his findings ever disturbed on appeal.

In 1988, Justice Flaherty re-affirmed his convictions

that fluoridation is a very dangerous practice.

In a letter dated January 26, 1988 to Ms. Evelyn Hannan, he stated,

❝  It has been years now since the case involving fluoridation was before me as a trial judge, but since that time nothing I have seen changes my view of the serious hazards occasioned by public fluoridation. To the contrary, what I have read convinces me all the more that in-depth, serious, scientific effort should be undertaken before further expanding a questionable practice. Those who belittle critics of fluoridation do the public a mis-service, yet it seems in the face of strong, uncontradicted prima facie evidence, that is the tactic most often employed.

Whether government has the right to force what it perceives as a benefit to the public was not directly before me in the case, but that also is to be pondered.

My hope is that groups such as yours will spur the scientific community into an objective posture on this issue.

I enclose an essay which was sent to me a few years ago focusing on the issue presented by analyzing epidemiological law data. Perhaps resolution of this narrow question will provide the answer. 

More recently, some people have pointed out that Judge Flaherty’s decision was overturned on appeal and they assumed that therefore fluoridation wasn’t really proved to be harmful. Now a member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Justice Flaherty clarified that his decision to end fluoridation was overturned only on the grounds that his court did not have jurisdiction to decide the issue.

         ♦

John P. Flaherty, Jr. (Born 19 November 1931)

was a Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

from 1978 to 2001 and Chief Justice of the Court from 1996 to 2001.

He retired at the end of 2001.

The most powerful court in America is not

the United States Supreme Court but, 

the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

SUPPRESSION OF CIVIL RIGHTS IN

AUSTRALIA REGARDING FLUORIDATION:

VICTORIA

In November 1994 the Victorian Parliament passed an amendment to the Fluoridation Act by changing the Constitution to stop the Supreme Court from hearing cases against Artificial Fluoridation. If you are poisoned by fluoride in Victoria tough luck, there is no protection under law.

TASMANIA

The Tasmanian Government in 1995 passed a Bill through the Lower House to prohibit the holding of meetings on the subject of Flouridation anywhere at all in Tasmania. Called the Consequential Amendments Bill it was later withdrawn but is being re-worded. Outside of Tasmania, no outcry, no boycotts, why?

NEW SOUTH WALES

A draconian law was enacted in NSW in 1989. Because of this law, a Council cannot cease Fluoridation of its own water supply, after requests by public demand, unless it gets permission from the Health Department. And there is little chance of that.

Australia is a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966). This U.N. law states that ‘no one shall be subjected without his consent to medical or scientific experimentation.’ The Health Dept. cannot produce one double blind scientific study which proves absolutely the safety and efficacy of fluoridation. It seems we are all experimental subjects.

If fluoridation is so safe or effective, why this repressive legislation ?

Why don’t we hear about it in the media?

To whom it may concern

In my capacity of chair of the Advisory Group for the systematic review on the effects of water fluoridation conducted by the NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination the University of York and as its founding director, I am concerned that the results of the review have been widely misrepresented. The review was exceptional in this field in that it was conducted by an independent group to the highest international scientific standards and a summary has been published in the British Medical Journal.

It is particularly worrying then that statements which mislead the public about the review’s findings have been made in press releases and briefings by the British Dental Association, the British Medical Association, the National Alliance for Equity in Dental Health, the British Fluoridation Society and others abroad.

I should like to correct some of these errors.

1   Whilst there is evidence that water fluoridation is effective at reducing caries, the quality of the studies was generally moderate and the size of the estimated benefit, only of the order of 15%, is far from “massive”.

2   The review found water fluoridation to be significantly associated with high levels of dental fluorosis which was not characterised as “just a cosmetic issue”.

3   The review did not show water fluoridation to be safe. The quality of the research was too poor to establish with confidence whether or not there are potentially important adverse effects in addition to the high levels of fluorosis. The report recommended that more research was needed.

4   There was little evidence to show that water fluoridation has reduced social inequalities in dental health.

5   The review could come to no conclusion as to the cost-effectiveness of water fluoridation or whether there are different effects between natural or artificial fluoridation.

6   Probably because of the rigour with which this review was conducted, these findings are more cautious and less conclusive than in most previous reviews.

  The review team was surprised that in spite of the large number of studies carried out over several decades there is a dearth of reliable evidence with which to inform policy. Until high quality studies are undertaken providing more definite evidence, there will continue to be legitimate scientific controversy over the likely effects and costs of water fluoridation.

5.) During the past two years I have personally discussed the effects of artificial fluoridation of drinking water with many individuals possessing outstanding background on the subject of fluoridation, including the following:

a.  Dr. Albert Burgstahler, Ph.D., University of Kansas;

b.  Dr. Mel Ruber, Ph.D., Columbia, Maryland;

c.  Dr. Robert Carton, Ph.D., former head of EPA Employees Union, Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C.;

i.  Dr. John Yiamouyiannis, Ph.D., Delaware, Ohio;

j.  Dr. John R. Lee, M.D., Sebastopol, California. EVIDENCE AGAINST THE SAFETY OF FLUORIDATION

6.) My research, communication and discovery concerning the epidemiological effects of fluoridation has provided me with solid scientific evidence on which to base the following conclusions.

7.) Fluoride has never been established as, and is not, essential in nutrition for soft tissues, bones or teeth.

8.) There are no experiments or data which establish that fluoride in any form or in any concentration is harmless when put into drinking water for human consumption or usage.

9.) Fluoride at low levels has been shown to unsnap hydrogen bonds in the enzyme cytochrome oxidase, and thus ruin its ability to handle oxygen in humans, animals or plants. (Exhibit).

10.) It is well-established in academic and industrial chemical industry that the hydrogen-fluoride hydrogen bond is stronger than the hydrogen-nitrogen or hydrogen-oxygen hydrogen bonds characteristic of human enzymes. Therefore, human enzyme systems (thousands of enzymes) are subject to destruction when water containing fluoride is consumed. After a few weeks for some, and a lifetime for others, a large enough reservoir of fluoride is built up to cause serious ailments.

11.) At least 63 human, animal and plant enzymes are for the most part destroyed or modified by fluoride.

12.) A summary of important epidemiological effects of fluoride from Chemical Abstracts, 1992-1989 (53 pages); Journal of Fluoride, August 1992-January 1993 (42 pages); and Index Medicus, May, June and July 1992 (3 pages) failed to produce even one article proving fluoride to be harmless.

13.) Contrariwise, hundreds of experiments on test animals, humans, plants, and their cells, have invariably demonstrated harmful effects.

14.) A large number of epidemiological effects in the way of ailments and allergies caused by fluoride have been clinically established by competent authorities, including those below.

15.) Forty-nine or more serious allergenic conditions were established by George Waldbott, M.D. These were proven by removing patients from drinking water with fluoride in it, in which case they were cured. This was followed up with single- or double-blind tests with fluoride tablets.

16.) Eight of Dr. Waldbott’s side effects were confirmed through double-blind tests organized by Dr. H. Moolenburgh, with 12 other physicians, one pharmacist, and one attorney. (Exhibit). Only one of these side effects presented in court was sufficient to cause the Holland Ministry of Health to discontinue fluoridation of water in that country. These side effects are listed in Waldbott’s book, pp. 123-125.

17.) Genetic changes in bone cells and sperm cells of mice were thoroughly studied, re-studied and established by Dr. Albert Taylor.

This work has been confirmed by numerous other researchers.

18.) 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 the fluoride in the lens. (Exhibit).

19.) SIDS (crib or cot death) has been related to fluoride poisoning by Dr. J. Colquhoun (exhibit), Dr. Bruce Spittle, and others.

20.) Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and chronic fluoride toxicity (CFT) have been found to be very closely related in their symptoms (Exhibit).

21.) RSI (repetitive stress injury, or carpal tunnel syndrome) has been linked to the accumulation of fluoride in the bone by Dr. Geoffrey E. Smith. Additional work supporting this link was found by Dr. Sutton. (Exhibit).

22.) Dental fluorosis has been shown recently to occur at fluoride levels as low as .3 ppm, as opposed to earlier studies of Dr. H. Trendly Dean, who set 1.0 as a tolerable limit, allowing 24 percent fluorosis. The degree of fluorosis depends on the nutritional status of the person.

23.) Dr. Waldbott had over 400 cases of pre-skeletal bone fluorosis in patients, which he established was caused by their drinking fluoridated water. (Exhibit) This has been further confirmed by many other studies. The degree of bone fluorosis is strictly related to bone fluoride content.

24.) Embrittled bones are caused by drinking fluoridated water, as well as by administration of tablets to “harden bones.” (Riggs study, Exhibit; Utah study, Exhibit; Jacobson’s study, Exhibit; Cooper’s study, Exhibit; and Sower’s study, Exhibit.

25.) Increased infant mortality and birth defects (two to three times increase) was established by Dr. Albert Schatz to be present in Chilean children administered fluoridated water in an experimental study in Curico, Chili, with San Fernando and La Serena as a control towns. (Exhibit). Dr. Schatz found fluoridation did no good for teeth, and caused enormous increase in miscarriages. The malformations and infant mortality dropped dramatically upon cessation of the fluoridation. Similar malformations and infant mortalities are now occurring in U.S.

26.) C. R. Cox, working with the University of Oregon, found that 17 ppm fluoride in feed caused constipation, great mature and baby chinchilla death, small litters and over four generations a smaller, inferior rabbit.

27.) Down’s Syndrome was established to be linked to consumption of fluoride through statistical studies and re-studies by Dr. Ionel F. Rapaport, M.D. and Waldbott, Fluoridation the Great Dilemma, pp. 212-219. Dr. Rapaport also found that 70% of Down’s Syndrome babies were born with cataracted eyes.

28.) Genu valgum (knock knees) has been reported as having been caused by fluoride in drinking water..

29.) Gilbert’s Disease (hemorrhagic yellow jaundice) has been cured by taking the patient off fluoridated drinking water. (Exhibit).

30.) Collagen synthesis has been shown to be impeded by fluoride by the work of B. Uslu, Andola School of Medicine, Eskisehir, Turkey.

31.) Immunosuppression, according to Sutton and Gibson, may be caused by consumption of fluoride. (See Exhibits).

32.) Decreased immunodiffusion has been established as due to fluoride ion, making it a negative chemitaxic agent (this means it impedes the “taxiing” or motion effect). (Exhibit).

33.) Between 1953 and 1968, there were approximately 572,810 (44,062 per year average) more deaths due to all types of cancer in 10 major fluoridated cities compared to non-fluoridated cities. Sex, race and age changes in these populations were insignificant during this period, so that nothing else could be established as causal. (Exhibit).

34.) In Antigo, Wisconsin, heart attacks were shown to dramatically increase both in the general population and the people under 65 and over 65 when fluoridation was instituted and continued over 35 years.

35.) A tremendous increase in caiman (alligator) deaths was experienced once Kansas City, Kansas water was fluoridated at the Parrot Hill farms under the care of Patricia Jacobs, naturalist. EVIDENCE AGAINST THE EFFECTIVENESS OF FLUORIDATION

36.) In contrast to the claims of the Human Health Services and the American Dental Association that fluoride reduces DMF (decayed, missing, filled teeth) 65 percent, it has now been established through a very large number of reliable studies that fluoride may actually cause a slight amount of DMF. (A large amount of DMF is actually related to nutrition.)

37.) Dr. Yiamouyiannis found that of 39,200 students, ages 5-19, from 89 fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas, the teeth of those living in non-fluoridated areas had slightly less DMF. (Exhibit).

38.) A survey of 1,500 fifth grade students in Missouri gave slightly lower DMF for those who lived in a non-fluoridated area. This was also true in a survey of 1500 6th graders.(Exhibit).

39.) A study of school children in Tucson, Arizona by Dr. Cornelius Steelink (Chemistry Department, University of Arizona), established that there was an increase in DMF with an increase in fluoride in the water. (Exhibit).

40.) A thorough study of the entire population of Japan (included 20,000 school children, 1972) established that when the fluoride in the drinking water was above .4 ppm there was more decay. (Exhibit).

41.) A study of Auckland, New Zealand, found that DMF decreases depended heavily on dental education in the schools and the salary of people from various areas, and insignificantly on the amount of fluoride in the water. (Exhibit).

42.) In Garis, Africa a high proportion of 14 to 15-year-olds had first permanent molars which were extensively carious or missing despite 1.06 ppm fluoride in drinking water. High sugar intake was a possible factor.

43.) Earlier “studies” justifying fluoridation of drinking water have been unmasked and debunked by competent authorities (Dr. Waldbott, Dr. Colquhoun, Dr. Foulkes, Dr. Mark Diesendorf, Dr. Sutton, Dr. Exner and Dr. Rudolf Ziegelbecker) on the basis of neglecting variables, cheating and group selection, not completing the studies, etc. (Exhibits).

44.) As one example, phosphate, calcium and strontium were not accounted for in the Newburgh-Kingston study, or any other study, to the best of my knowledge. Dr. Waldbott established that the Kingston water had deficiencies of these elements.

CONCLUSION

45.) My research has made it clear that the American Dental Association and U. S. Human Health Services have made a wrong turn in their attempt to improve the teeth of the American public.

46.) Fluoride in drinking water should be limited to .1 ppm where possible, since reverse osmosis can easily reduce fluoride below this value.

47.) It is my best judgment, reached with a high degree of scientific certainty, that fluoridation is invalid in theory and ineffective in practice as a preventive of dental caries. It is also dangerous to the health of consumers.

48.) I make this Affidavit in support of the Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment.
