New York – November 30, 2016 – A coalition of environmental, medical and health groups have served the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a Petition calling on the Agency to ban the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water supplies due to the risks these chemicals pose to the brain, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).
Bethany, you’re getting close to the truth, but you’re not quite there, when you write:
“Fluoridated drinking water may not help bones, but it does reduce cavities by 25 percent in both adults and children.”
First of all, we invite you to learn more about fluoride and bone right here. Secondly, you seem to be misinformed about the alleged benefits of water fluoridation and therefore take these for granted. These resources will help clarify the matter for you:
Now you have no excuse not to know.
This pathetic excuse for a journalist writes the following:
“The dental profession needs to make it unambiguously clear to local government councillors that at the next election, they will mobilise their colleagues, and their patients, to vote against any councillor who countenances a ban on fluoridation. In this campaign dentists need to call on the support of the medical profession. The Australian Medical Association is a more powerful industrial organisation than the CFMEU.”
This constitutes nothing less than a direct threat; a disgraceful call for the bullying and threatening of local councils into making the decision to inject fluoridation chemicals into public drinking water supplies, regardless of the democratic will of the people.
Exactly as Dr. Paul Connett warned local councillors in New Zealand, we can see this type of ‘dental thuggery’ being promoted – in fact, demanded – in Queensland; and it must be exposed and resisted at all costs.
This article contends that poor dental health in Queensland children is a direct consequence of lack of public water fluoridation schemes across the state, and that by implication those who oppose or prevent artificial water fluoridation programs from being implemented are harming the dental health of the community. The first thing to do here is to broaden the scope beyond the narrow bandwidth of the water fluoridation status of Queensland. Once we do this, we quickly realise that the pro-fluoridation contention that lack of artificial fluoridation programs results in increased tooth decay, is false…
