A few years ago I was chosen as the public representative to address  Byron Council, Lismore Council and Rous County Council on the dangers  of fluoridation.

Today, I can’t even get a letter to the editor published on the topic.

While Israel ends 15 years of fluoridation, with its High Court accepting that fluoridated water is now shown to lower human intelligence, local councils, being unaware of this fact, decide to fluoridate.

Quote from Harvard School of Public Health: ‘Children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas’ (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22820538).

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. 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. Now after all these years of reading your letters to the Echo I can finally understand your problem Peter. Conspiracy theories abound! I thought your problem was aluminium saucepans!

  2. Philip Pidcock apparently doesn’t care about Frogs.
    The video below shows proof fluoridated water kills frogs and Brisbane Council previously accepted Fluoridated water harms aquatic life. Also shows the 10 main harms caused by Fluoride


    40 towns in Australia that previously Fluoridated have now stopped Fluoridating, even after they paid for the Fluoridation equipment to be installed. Why? Toxic effects, reduced IQ. Fluoridosis of teeth.
    Dentists incomes in Canada rose greatly after fluoride was put in the water (due to harmful Fluoridosis of teeth).

    Ridicule is the tool of fools.
    Facts are the tool of education and common sense.
