Fluoride dosing plants set to be built

shutterstock_water-fluoride-splashFluoridation of the water supply to Lismore and Ballina moved a step closer yesterday after the award of the tender to build four dosing plants, but anti-fluoride campaigners may yet continue their fight to stop it.

Rous Water announced yesterday that the tender had been accepted for the building of the four plants at Clunes, Corndale, Dorrougby and Knockrow, with the state health department to cover the initial cost of around $2.7 million.

Anti-fluoride campaigner Al Oshlack told ABC North Coast that he attended the meeting to advise delegates they could be in a legally tricky situation if they voted to go ahead with plan.

Mr Oshlack said the argument by pro-fluoride supporters was that it was given as a therapy to stop tooth cavities. Mr Oshlack argued that if that was the case, then fluoride would be a medicine requiring a licence from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

The vote by Rous Water councillors to award tender was carried 4-3.

Chair of Rous Water, Cr Sue Meehan, told the ABC the project was costly due to Byron Shire Council’s decision to opt out of the plan.

Cr Meehan said because Byron was excluded from the dosing-plant network, four sites have to built instead of two, which meant a doubling of the price of the plants including their ongoing maintenance.

Meanwhile,  the Fluoride Action Network Australia (FAN) has accused Australia’s National Medical Research Council (NHMRC) of ‘extreme bias’ in the makeup of the committee set to review water fluoridation’s health effects.

According to FAN, the NHMRC has stacked its new fluoride committee with at least nine members who have publicly advocated for water fluoridation, making fluoridation advocates a majority of the 15 member NHMRC committee, according to Merilyn Haines, president of FAN Australia.

Ms Haines said four of the committee members were well known fluoridation activists who had all also received significant grant funding from the NHMRC and all have used their own publications to promote fluoridation.

‘It appears that the NHMRC CEO has also not invited anyone who is opposed to fluoridation to join the committee despite the NHMRC claiming in late 2013 and early 2014 that their review process will be open and transparent and would include anti-fluoride representatives,’ Ms Haines said.

‘It is now August and the NHMRC has still not disclosed the committee members’ conflicts of interests even though the new committee commenced official meetings in June after being appointed by the CEO in May 2014.

‘The NHMRC have invited the public to submit evidence on fluoridation health effects but the public has been allowed only one month to submit evidence, despite the planned two year review timeline.

‘The NHMRC have also said they will reject personal evidence of harm such as medical histories, case notes etc from members of public.

‘The NHMRC’s intention to do such an extremely biased and deliberately skewed review of water fluoridation is dishonest, it brings disrepute to Australian medical research and is fraudulent use of taxpayer’s money.

‘How can anyone ever take the NHMRC seriously again when they descend to this sort of tactics to protect fluoridation, an outdated practice that most of the world countries don’t even do,’ she said.

    Why not just give everyone a frontal lobotomy and be done with it? The cumulative effects of this neuro-toxin is well documented and classified as such. There are no known health benefits and the tooth propaganda is a proven lie. Why would 95% of European countries ban it if it was so good? Do some research and find out what the single greatest cause of cancer is.

  2. It’s truly tragic that the small majority of councillors and the state health department are so determined to push this long-term ‘crime’, when evidence has been gathered over many decades about fluoridation and as such is considered (as stated here by Dr Haines) “an outdated practice that most of the world countries don’t even do”. Even the original research back in the 50s is now known to be flawed. It has been already stated over and over again that fluoride may work topically, but that it’s 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 it’s 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.

  3. John Teagle says:

    After decades of systematically poisoning its residents Israel has now banned fluoridation due to health concerns.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi1TJfao2Ng

    The Therapeutic Goods Administration and the Federal Drug Administration has never tested the chemical waste streams generated from the production of aluminium and phosphate fertilisers for safety and efficacy and yet the purported health authorities in this country keep chanting the mantra “fluoride is safe and effective” I have written to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) who is responsible for reviewing the safety and efficacy reviews for artificial fluoridates seeking the scientific studies proving that this poison does no harm when ingested by unsuspecting consumers. The NHMRC cannot provide this information. The law suits against this systematic poisoning is growing as more scientific evidence emerges about the harmful effects of artificial fluoride that contains lead, arsenic, mercury aluminium, cadmium, Any council that promotes this unlawful mass medication should ask the NSW Health department to provide the scientific evidence (not opinion) that artificial is safe and effective. No doubt it will cite the NHMRC as their only defence for promoting this medical fraud.

  4. Anna Michalik says:

    The biggest fraud in this whole fluoridation medication is the fact that it’s fluorosilicic acid a waste product from the fertiliser and aluminium industries which is being used to fluoridate. It’s not refined or purified of its co-contaminants such as arsenic, mercury and cadmium. How is it possible that medical people are recommending that a carcinogen (arsenic) be deliberately added to our babies water supply. NHMRC and their whole cover-up team of Colgate funded people should be held accountable. It is our TAX dollar they are deliberately wasting on the sham review. How can the Health Minister allow such a deliberate waste of money. Unless the corruption goes deeper into Government.

  5. Louise says:

    Why dont people wake up and realise that fluoridated water is not only preposterous proposal? It is a violation of human rights. Not to mention that there are a multitude of towns worldwide that are fluoride free. I feel that Australia being slow on the uptake can be advantageous in some ways, yet a total hindrance in other ways, simply because people think that possibly poisoning our water supply can be normal. Not likely, please go with your original thought and realise that it is totally insane and look ip these sites http://fluoridealert.org/content/communities/

  6. Matt Sansom says:

    Ask any right minded person and they will all say the same thing, and that is that they do not know how anyone can claim the rights to force medicate an entire population, regardless of there age and medical history. This defies all medical principals, it defies common sense. This is the prevailing reason why over 95% of the world parliaments have rejected this policy. I am confounded and deeply disappointed in our elected members of council who have voted in favour or Fluoridation. To decide what medicines go into other peoples bodys via the public water supply is totally outside of there jurisdiction and anyone’s for that matter. On this ground alone council should of rejected the proposal. the history of water fluoridation is one of deception. Water Fluoridation is nothing more than a cleverly marketed industrial waste management program and at what cost to public health is highly controversial. It has given rise to an enormous ground swell of opposition that would not have occurred if fluoridation was truthfully safe and all that is purported in the ‘official’ story. Our beautiful Rocky creek water not set to be tainted with industrial waste (emotive use of words not intended, only factual portrayal) is an absolute crime that must be stopped!

  7. Here is my submission to NHMRC …. Please feel free to forward to any official, professional, politician, media outlet, website, facebook, twitter etc or campaigner that you feel fit.

    For this purpose I attach my bio and photo (which, I, Ailsa Boyden am about to email to the Echo’s online editor along with Paul’s submission below)..

    Paul Connett, PhD

    If the NHMRC panel members are seriously interested in protecting citizens from the harmful effects of adding fluoride to water as opposed to protecting the government’s promotion of this practice – which I seriously doubt, based on the travesty dished up by this same body in 2007 (see my commentary in Chapter 24 of The Case Against Fluoride (Chelsea Green, 2010) –then they should carefully study ALL the evidence that fluoride can damage the brain. The Fluoride Action Network, and specifically Michael Connett, has made this task easy by providing a database with commentary and full details of every study http://www.FluorideAlert.org/issues/health/brain. Any competent researcher should be able to extract the critical information quickly from this database. If they were to do so, they would find, what many others have found, namely that the weight of evidence indicates that fluoride is a neurotoxin. These include the NRC (2006) (a review conveniently and self-servingly sidestepped by the NHMRC in 2007); a team of scientists from Harvard University (Choi et al., 2012) as well as scientists at the EPA (Mundy et al…).

    As of May 2014, 46 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence, and 31 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and learning/memory in animals. Of these investigations, 39 of the 46 human studies (of over 11,000 children) have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ, which is consistent with the fact that 29 of 31 studies have found that fluoride exposure impairs the learning and/or memory capacity of animals.

    It is very unlikely that 39 studies finding reduced IQ can all be a random fluke. The question, therefore, is less whether fluoride reduces IQ, but at what dose, at what time, and how this dose and time varies based on an individual’s nutritional status, health status, and exposure to other contaminants (e.g., aluminum, arsenic, lead, etc). Of particular concern is fluoride’s effect on children born to women with suboptimal iodine intake during the time of pregnancy, and/or fluoride’s effects on infants with suboptimal iodine intake themselves.

    Because of the appalling lack of due diligence by Australian authorities very little study has been undertaken on these matters in Australia. The NHMRC should not conclude that the absence of study indicates absence of harm – which is what historically they are prone to do – but instead to carefully comb through the human IQ studies that have been performed elsewhere and determine the lowest dose – or even a range of doses taken from several of the many studies –causing this effect and perform a standard “margin of safety” analysis to determine a safe dose sufficient to protect all children. Were they to do so, it will become clear that there is no adequate margin of safety to protect all Australian children from this serious effect and the panelists should then recommend the end of water fluoridation. I fear instead that they will follow the marching orders of the government and once again rubberstamp this reckless policy.

  8. Janet Nagel says:

    The basic thing to know about scientific research is that no amount of it can ever prove that fluoride or any other therapeutic substance or procedure is completely safe for everyone. Scientific studies can only show absence of harm in the particular instances that were tested.

    That fact is why putting a treatment in the water supply that everyone depends on is a violation of public health ethics and human rights. In the case of fluoride, everyone agrees that what fluoridationists call “optimally” fluoridated water increases the incidence of dental fluorosis which they and everyone else agree is an undesirable condition.

    What extreme exigency would require water suppliers to knowingly inflict injury on water consumers and thereby violate the fundamental human rights that underpin our society?

    Tooth decay? How is that sufficient cause when regular tooth brushing is clearly more effective, ethical, safer and less costly? Citizens are entrusted with responsibility for diet, exercise and every other health maintenance practice. Why would a dental treatment be imposed on them? Because it can be?

  9. Janet Nagel says:

    What about the 2005 UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, councilors?

    Article 6 – Consent

    1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.

  10. Dan Germouse says:

    The following are some good sources of information on fluoride and artificial water fluoridation: the Fluoride Action Network, Declan Waugh’s work, the books The Case Against Fluoride and The Fluoride Deception, the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards, and the peer-reviewed journal Fluoride.

    The forced-fluoridation experiment is medical malpractice on an industrial scale. Fluoridation chemicals are the only medications which are delivered via public water supplies. Medicating public water supplies with any chemical violates the human rights and medical ethics principle of informed consent to medical intervention, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since the fluoride dose received from water and other sources is uncontrolled, and is environmentally irresponsible because the vast majority of tap water is not ingested, so the environmental load is vastly greater than it needs to be. Medicating public water supplies means that politicians are subjecting everyone to treatment which no doctor can legally impose on anyone, and is surely the most ham-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

    Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially egregious, because fluoride is a cumulative poison with a half life in the body of around 20 years, there was no good quality scientific research which indicated that forced-fluoridation was anything but harmful and useless in the 1940s and there still isn’t any, the best quality scientific research which has been conducted indicates that forced-fluoridation is in fact both harmful and useless, the fluoridation chemicals which are used are industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced-fluoridation experiment is unethical, illegal, irrational, archaic, pseudoscientific, and all risk, no reward.

  11. delledarrach says:

    Idiots .Fluoridated water has ruined my health and my life and caused so much restriction that I wonder truly just when they will wake up and finally realise the harm they do to people health and wellbeing .

  12. Peter says:

    Plenty of studies show that fluoride can cause harm even at low levels. People can experience toxicity symptoms from drinking fluoridated water or using fluoride tablets. Symptoms include neurological problems, headaches, skin irritation, gastrointestinal pain and symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation) urticaria, pruritus, stomatitis, chronic fatigue, joint pains, and polydipsia (Waldbott 1956, 1958, Feltman 1956, Feltman and Kosel 1961, Grimbergen 1974, Petraborg 1977, Spittle 2008, reviewed by NRC2006). Patients were often unaware that their drinking water contained fluoride. Symptoms improved with avoidance of fluoridated water and returned with consumption of fluoridated water or with experimental challenge with fluoride and confirmed by double blind testing. Doctors aren’t trained to suspect fluoride, so patients may be treated for side effects when all that is needed, is avoidance of fluoridated water.
    The Feltman and Kosel study was published in the Journal of Dental Medicine and received funding from the US Public Health Service, Department of Health Education and Welfare, Washington DC.

    For those of you who are unsure about fluoride and don’t have much time, do a search for the online video “Professional Perspectives on Water Fluoridation”. It’s 28 min long and really well worth watching. It features a Nobel Laureate in Medicine, scientists from the National Research Council review on fluoride as well as dentists and doctors.

  13. Australia wide in dental crisis after widespread fluoridation in every State, first commencing Beaconsfield, Tasmania in 1953 – likewise USA in dental crisis after widespread `fluoridation` first beginning in 1945 Grand Rapids Michigan.

    The study also found that fluoride does not eliminate tooth decay, citing dietary sugars as the primary cause. People living in areas with fluoridated water and/or using fluoride toothpaste still got dental caries.
    http://www.irishdentist.ie/news/news_detail.php?id=5436

    The only answer EVER was to provide access to affordable dental health care services for all the population, not the dumping/disposal of hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, beryllium, etc., (known as water fluoridation); into our drinking water supplies and hence also the contamination of our food chain and using the populations` kidneys as hazardous waste disposal/filtration units.

    These hazardous waste pollutants and co-contaminants (from phosphate fertiliser industries) (known as ‘water fluoridation chemicals’) must not be dumped in the ground, air, rivers, oceans, creeks but dump it in the water supplies as a forced ‘medical /dental treatment’ (without informed consent ! ) and it magically becomes safe and effective.

    The error of fluoridation is made undeniably clear by the 2005 UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights:
    “Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.”  Article 6 – Consent
    The reason that ethical public health practice requires individual consent is because medical science can never guarantee that any treatment or procedure will not harm anyone, whether or not specific harm has been identified. No treatment can be imposed on anyone without their informed consent. And it must be possible to stop treatment if adverse effects occur.

  14. CONFIDENTIAL TO MODERATOR ONLY not for publication

    Dear Moderator,

    I was wondering why none of my comments have been shown? Is there a problem, can you advise please. Thank you, Diane

  15. I understand and thank you for responding Luis.
    Yes you can use it as letter to editor, very much appreciated. Thank you. Diane

  16. Dennis Stevenson, a former Parliamentarian and Member of the ACT Legislative Assembly ‘Fluoridation Inquiry’ (1989-91). The majority of inquiry members would not report the scientific, medical, dental and court evidence received in worldwide submissions proving that fluoridation causes disease, deaths, tooth decay and is useless and environmentally destructive. Dennis put this evidence in a 177 page Dissenting Report, part of this major government report, but longer than the 131 page section which attempted to suppress the evidence.

    For over 100 years, science and medicine have understood the poisonous nature of fluoride. In the 1930’s and 40’s, giant US companies, e.g. ALCOA, were sued for millions of dollars due to toxic fluoride waste escaping from factory smokestacks killing crops and livestock. ALCOA’s owners (Mellon) figured that if people could be persuaded fluoride isn’t poisonous but is good for teeth, profits could be protected. So, to introduce water fluoridation, they hired the brilliant ‘father of propaganda’ Edward L. Bernays. Joined later by other fluoride polluting industries (e.g. nuclear) and the multi-billion dollar sugar, toothpaste, confectionary and soft drink industries, they became strong financial supporters of dental associations that promoted fluoridation. One such support group, the Dental Health Education & Research Foundation (DHERF) was founded in Australia in 1962. Its Governors, Members and donors comprised key representatives from Coca-Cola, CSR, Kelloggs, Colgate-Palmolive, Wrigleys, Arnotts, Scanlens, Cadbury Schweppes, etc. 
The following 12 points require no expertise in fluoride toxicity, just common sense:….

  18. Dear Moderator,

    I feel the information herein would be well suited as A Letter to the Editor – I hope you don’t mind me sending here; thank you so much, Diane Drayton Buckland, Kallangur, Queensland.

    Dentists have Controlled CDC’s Water Fluoridation Stance for over 35 Years…
    Documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show that since the 1970’s, the dental health professionals in the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have completely controlled the agency’s stance supporting water fluoridation.  No CDC toxicologists, minority health professionals, experts in diabetes, or others outside the Oral Health Division had any input into the agency’s position.
    The documents have drawn attention once again to the CDC’s and EPA’s fluoride safety statements, which appear at odds with current scientific knowledge.
    According to the Fluoride Action Network: “Law firms are now reviewing old and new documents believed to highlight a pattern of attempts to curtail discussions on fluoride toxicity and downplay the importance of professionals personally reviewing scientific reports about fluorides.”

    ~~
    When Dentists fight to the death to keep ‘something in the water supplies’ (without informed consent to mass treatment) that is supposed to dramatically reduce tooth decay and potentially put many out of business, you know you can smell a rat.

    More dentists/dental corporations than ever before & one filling (in my suburb north of Brisbane will cost you anywhere between $150 & $400 depending on size FOR ONE FILLING !! you can only imagine the rest of the charges that more of the population are unable to afford – & Private Health Insurance becoming unaffordable for more of the population & those who think hazardous waste pollutants & co-contaminants S6, S7 poison Corrosive 8 hazardous waste fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, beryllium etc., known as ‘fluoridation chemicals’ are good for your teeth and brain & body – you need to re-examine your thinking power (and added to this hazardous waste mix is ‘aluminium sulphate’).
    Before water fluoridation/pollution with corrosive hazardous waste & co-contaminants, my 21 year old chemically sensitive son had no fillings or problems whatsoever, in the five & half years since WF, I can’t at this time, find all the records, but he has approximately eight fillings !!!! Water Fluoridation is an absolute fraud and is not safe and not effective.

    To quote Dr. Phillip R.N. Sutton, Formerly Academic Associate and Senior Research Fellow, Department Oral Medicine and Surgery, Dental School, University of Melbourne, Author of  The Greatest Fraud: Fluoridation (1996):
    “We are all affected by this potentially dangerous fraud:  The convincing of Governments and people generally that it is ethical, safe and beneficial to medicate, compulsorily, many millions of people throughout their lives with small but uncontrollable doses of a cumulative and very toxic substance because of the notion that it reduces the prevalence of dental decay. All this, although neither its safety nor any scientifically-proved reduction in the number of decayed teeth has been demonstrated.” http://fluorideinformationaustralia.wordpress.com/fia-report-archives/
    Not Safe Not Effective – No Evidence of Safety exists at all yet Dentists and their interests have continued to claim water fluoridation is safe and effective – this is not true http://fluorideinformationaustralia.wordpress.com/not-safe-not-effective/

    Those on Government Centrelink benefits at least can get some help at Queensland (Australian) Government dentists but the waiting list is very, very, very long (up to eight years). The Queensland Government now after five years of fluoridation (Dec. 2008) and dental clinics at some schools, have so many on waiting list for Centerlink that some of these people can now go to Private Dentists and the Government foots the bill. They also provide dental funds for families on Centrelink Benefits. More proof of the appalling failure and fraud of all water fluoridation ‘schemes‘ in every sense of the word. Australia is in dental crisis after decades of water fluoridation/pollution first commencing in Beaconsfield Tasmania in 1953 & USA in dental crisis after first commencing in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1945 – water fluoridation/pollution is a fraud – disposal of dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants and co-contaminants into our drinking water supplies & hence contaminating our food chain has to be stopped for all time, the only answer ever was to provide access to affordable dental health care services for all the population, not the disposal of hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides & co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, beryllium, etc. into our drinking water supplies and hence also contaminating our foodchain.. Chronically poisoning the population, pets & environment on the say so of Pro-fluoridation lobby groups with such political power, clout & control is obscene to say the least.

    Fluoridation is an absolute Fraud and Failure. After decades of widespread fluoridation Australia wide in dental crisis (& USA in dental crisis also after up to 67 years of WF)- headlines such as DENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM IN DECAY – Dr Deborah Cole is chief executive officer of Dental Health Services Victoria/ REPORT WARNS $10B NEEDED TO FIX DENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM February 28, 2012 and many more.
    The reputations and credibility of those pushing this hazardous waste and con-contaminants known as ‘fluoridation’ will suffer if any of you continue with this chronic poisoning of the population, pets and environment with these hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicoluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, beryllium etc., (and added to this neurotoxic cocktail is aluminium sulphate) known as ‘water fluoridation’. Many ask why are Dentists and their interests (not to mention Corporate sponsored Dental Schools at Universities !) fighting to the death to force to keep and/or add these dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants in our water supplies ( & hence food chain) if it is supposed to be so effective and reduce dental decay by anywhere between 30 & 60% thus reduce their income – what BS ! – these pollutants fluorosilicic acid, hexafluorosilicate being used in many industries such as glass etching, wood preservative, sterilization, electroplating, acidizing, rust removal in textile field, lead refining, tanneries, fluorosilicate salt, in veterinary fields to combat insect infestation. How anyone could be so gullible, complacent or dare I say uncaring that you ignore this and continue to put the population in Harm’s Way, you will live to regret such a shocking and negligent decision. We must all take action for the health and safety of our population and that is to call an immediate and irrevocable ban Queensland and Australia wide on every Fluoridation/pollution plant.
