It’s truly tragic that the small majority of Rous Water councillors and the state health department are so determined to push fluoridation, when evidence has been gathered over many decades about fluoridation, which is considered ‘an outdated practice that most of the world countries don’t even do’.
Even the original research back in the 1950s is now known to be flawed. It has been already stated over and over again that fluoride may work topically, but that its accumulative effects in our bodies cannot even be measured, causing the most alarming consequences for the wider population.
The quality of one’s drinking water is known to be the foundation for one’s good health. Tap water is considered unhealthy to drink with its overload of chemicals causing an over-acidic body prone to all chronic diseases.
Why would one want to add another toxic poison to that toxic mix and expect people to drink it? Are there people who still even drink tap water?
If children prefer to drink fizzy drinks and fruit juices loaded with sugar and will not suddenly stop eating sugar causing dental caries, why not spend the millions for fluoridation on a thoroughly up-to-date, integrative health campaign for the community, which would have long-term positive effects addressing all of today’s epidemic mind-body health issues?
Most interesting would be to know the real story behind this evangelistic push for fluoridation?
Studying research methods to conduct research one is taught academically that the most important question to ask is, ‘In whose interest is this, really?’ That is what we don’t know.
