Croquet club gets new turf as it prepares to host NSW championship

Lismore Council decided to ‘medicate’ their drinking water. Dr Page told Lismore Council that ‘fluoridated water is quite okay for organic farming’.

The rather well-informed European High Court stated in June 2005, ‘Fluoridated water must be treated as a medicine and can not be used to prepare food’. But what do they know? Ninety-eight  per cent of Europe stopped fluoridation; silly Europeans.

If it gets in the air, it’s a pollutant. If it gets in the river, it’s a pollutant, if it gets in your drinking water… it’s not a pollutant any more. Amazing science.

Dr Chant, NSW chief medical officer, stated on 21 August of this year in the Northern Star that ‘there is no scientific evidence fluoridation has any negative health effects’. She is one of the ‘experts’ Lismore council is listening to. Why not raise the expert level by a few levels and invite Nobel Prize winner for Medicine 2000 Dr Avid Carlsson, who stated,  ‘any country still fluoridating should be ashamed of themselves’? Bloody Nobel Prize winner interfering with a dentist from Lismore, a doctor from Nimbin, and a chief of health who who forgot to do their homework. They all must have overlooked the latest study (Feb 2013) by the US National Research Council, to be presented to the government of Ireland and the WHO, comparing the health of the fluoridated Republic of Ireland and non-fluoridated Northern Ireland. Their findings are in accord with Dr Avid Carlsson’s statement. Fluoridated Ireland is a pretty sick part of the world compared to non-fluoridated Northern Ireland and the rest of Europe, and the only visible difference is that the Republic of Ireland is poisoning their drinking water. But then again, who is the NRC compared to a dentist from Lismore and a doctor from Nimbin? I urge everyone to look it up via my dentist’s website www.robertgammal.com, a holistic dentist who shook his head in disbelief when I told him about the statements of Dr Chant and Dr Page.

The journal of the rather conservative American Dental Association stated already in 1988 that ‘the current decline in tooth decay in the US and other western countries has been observed in both fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities’. If you look at the WHO website you find their data from 2010 clearly showed the nearly identical decline of tooth decay in fluoridated and non-fluoridated countries. Simply, what does that say about the winning formula of fluoride  in our drinking water? No, let’s disregard those facts set out by international experts; we are from Downunder, we have our own downunder science.
