COVID-19 hospital horror – opening up and the dangers ahead

A hospital is not a health farm. For a start, the food has a terrible reputation. Seriously though, when life is on the brink, a hospital is the destination.

I would like to give my deepest respect and thankyou to the 1,382 Byron residents who took the time to talk to me about the fluoridation issue during the last ten days. I would also like to congratulate the 1,246 out of those 1,382 residents who signed my anti-fluoridation petition. It was probably my humblest experience since moving up here some years ago.

To be surrounded by so many awake and informed folk, no matter what age, gives you one of the best feelings you can hope for: freedom and safety! Thank you to my dear friend Dr Robert Gammal for coming all the way from the south coast to give the debate the spark that jumped all over the theatre.

I am still amazed as to where the other side of the fence got their data that 67 per cent of Byron residents were once pro-fluoridation.
