Hospital staff want to park for free while they work

It seems that Lismore Base isn’t the only hospital whose workers would like to park their cars for free while they work.

The predictable propaganda put forward by Rous Water (Echo, May 22) that water fluoridation ‘is one of the most cost-effective public health measures we can possibly take’ many would find hard to swallow.

Fluoride effectively blocks absorption of the essential element iodine, not only needed by every cell, but critical for the healthy stimulation of every process in the body, including dental health. By promoting iodine deficiency, fluoride works for the destruction of health. It may as a side effect harden teeth, but it does so at the expense of the rest of the body.

The first to use water fluoridation, the Nazis, found it useful as it produced a population that was docile and compliant. I have not found it documented that the Nazis held concerns for the dental health of concentration camp inmates.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Thanks Anton, really well said. Besides, there is a mouth wash w/ fluoride to harden teeth that is not ingested. Petty silly to mess up the water supply in any case.

  2. There are numerous peer reviewed scientific reports and scientific reviews raising very serious concerns about the long-term effects of fluoride, which, as an S7 poison, attacks nerves, bones, brain and other internal organs. It’s the biggest public health scam in history, yet find one politician or political party with the guts to stand up against the vested interests pushing this poison on the public.
