Our 2013 Bent Spoon Award Nomination


Rockhampton News Article

“Councillor Glenda Mather has been nominated for the not so sought after Bent Spoon Award bestowed by the Australian Skeptics group… for successfully getting fluoride removed from the local water supply, stating that ‘fluoride causes fluorosis and dementia.'”

Response to Australian Skeptics Inc.


“Fluorides also increase the production of free radicals in the brain through several different biological pathways. These changes have a bearing on the possibility that fluorides act to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Today, the disruption of aerobic metabolism in the brain, a reduction of effectiveness of acetylcholine as a transmitter, and an increase in free radicals are thought to be causative factors for this disease. More research is needed to clarify fluoride’s biochemical effects on the brain. Studies of rats exposed to NaF or AlF3 have reported distortion in cells in the outer and inner layers of the neocortex. Neuronal deformations were also found in the hippocampus and to a smaller extent in the amygdala and the cerebellum. Aluminum was detected in neurons and glia, as well as in the lining and in the lumen of blood vessels in the brain and kidney. The substantial enhancement of reactive microglia, the presence of stained intracellular neurofilaments, and the presence of IgM observed in rodents are related to signs of dementia in humans. The magnitude of the changes was large and consistent among the studies. Given this, the committee concludes further research is warranted in this area, similar to that discussed at a February 2-3,1999, EPA workshop on aluminum complexes and neurotoxicity and that recommended for study by NTP (2002). On the basis of information largely derived from histological, chemical, and molecular studies, it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means. To determine the possible adverse effects of fluoride, additional data from both the experimental and the clinical sciences are needed… Studies of populations exposed to different concentrations of fluoride should be undertaken to evaluate neurochemical changes that may be associated with dementia. Consideration should be given to assessing effects from chronic exposure, effects that might be delayed or occur late-in-life, and individual susceptibility.”

– National Research Council, United States, 2006 (1)

Skeletal Fluorosis

“If skeletal fluorosis is occurring at all in Australians, it is likely to be slight, and it will most likely occur in those who drink large amounts of water, or whose renal function is impaired. Studies of bone fluoride collected at autopsy in selected individuals could provide needed reassurance that the current policy is not resulting in hazardous levels of accumulation in bone.”

– National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia, 1991 (2)

Dental Fluorosis

“The only indisputably proven harm of water fluoridation is dental fluorosis, for which there is no discernible threshold. However, the risk of dental fluorosis increases as fluoride concentration of water exceeds 0.3 parts per million.”

– Professor Niyi Awofeso, University of Western Australia, 2012 (3-4)

Summary & Verdict


Fluoride has been cited as a possible causative agent for the onset of Dementia, by the US National Academy of Sciences; as a possible causative agent for Skeletal Fluorosis amongst vulnerable Australian sub-populations, by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council; and as a definite risk factor for dental fluorosis. The nomination of Councillor Glenda Mather for the Bent Spoon Award 2013 is therefore based on false, unscientific pretenses.


We nominate Australian Skeptics Inc. for their own Bent Spoon Award, “for their willful ignorance, unscientific attitude and supreme arrogance, in relation to fluoride and water fluoridation.”

  4. The Fluoridologists from the Church of Fluoridology – there appears to be allegedly, an incenstuous relationship in the Church of Fluoridology and lot of crooks delighted to be part of chronically poisoning the population, pets and environment with dangerously corrosive S6 /7 Corrosive 8 hazardous waste pollutants and co-contaminants known as ‘water fluoridation’. The insanity and greed of this must be stopped by The People for The People. None of these bloody crooks in Governments and their interests give a damn and we have the problem of a lot of the population are blindly trusting and gullible.

    Fluoridation is an absolute Fraud and Failure. After decades of widespread fluoridation Australia wide in dental crisis – 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.
    Your reputations and credibility will suffer if any of you continue with this chronic poisoning of the population and environment with these hazardous waste pollutants 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 caries by 60% – because it is not effective and not safe – 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. Now how any of you 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.


    The ADA asked for $200,000 and received $220,000 from Bligh’s Health Minister, Stephen Robertson to promote ‘fluoridation’ and their colleagues at the AMA sent a letter to Dr. Jeannette young, Chief Health Officer Queensland Health extract from FOI :-

    “The AMA believes the ‘strategic approach’ referred to in your letter must be for Government to mandate water fluoridation throughout the State. The approach to encourage individual councils to adopt fluoridation of their own volition has failed.”

    Some view this allegedly, as tantamount to ‘conspiring’ to ‘mandate’ ‘water fluoridation’ and you must take no other action but to ban ‘water fluoridation/pollution’ urgently, irrevocably and for all time.

    Queensland Fluoridation Committee – Queensland Water Fluoridation Act 2008  – Act No. 12 of 2008  Page 43       Part 7     Queensland Fluoridation  Committee

With regard to the hazardous waste poisoning aka ‘water fluoridation’ of the population of Queensland, I and countless others, still can scarcely believe how the Fluoridation Propaganda Machine continues to get away with it for decades; and the shocking massive political power and clout of the ADA, AMA and their interests to continue to enforce their agenda of water fluoridation/pollution which is chronically poisoning the population and our environment, the Queensland Fluoridation Committee comprises:-

The Chief Health Officer and the Chief Dental Officer and 6 persons (the appointed members) appointed by the Minister  ie 1 nominated by Australian Medical Association, 1 nominated by Australian Dental Association, 1 by Local Government Association of Queensland with expertise in local government matters, 1 person with expertise in Water Engineering, 1 person with expertise in Chemistry or chemical Analysis and 1 person with knowledge and experience in an area relevant to the Committee’s functions and all evidence of harm from world experts continues to be covered up/ignored.

    The number of informed and aware people, groups and organisations vehemently opposed to forced or unforced hazardous waste poisoning of our drinking water supplies (aka ‘water fluoridation’ ) and hence the contamination of our entire food chain, these same ‘pro-fluoridationists’ and their powerful ties, continue to get away with this chronic poisoning of the population. The Government of Queensland and all Australian Governments have failed all duty of care and ethics and are negligent in failing to protect the health and safety of the population in favour of ‘The Fluoridation Fraud’ / ‘The Fluoridation Machine’/Web of Deception.

    Fluoridation & The Web Of Deceit. – Conflicts of Interests

    The Girl Against Fluoride Independent Researcher and Activist – Ireland –
    Professor Denis O Mullane is Vice Chairperson of the Executive Committee of the Irish Expert Body of fluorides & health. Although he calls himself “an independent objective research worker in the field of Dental Public Health”, this man has promoted water fluoridation around the world for many years. He has pushed water fluoridation in South Africa along with Seamus Hickey.
    Despite Mr Mullane’s pro fluoride bias, in 2002 Michael Martin gave him a grant estimated at a million to investigate the benefits and risks of water fluoridation.

    The British Fluoridation Society includes Denis Mullane in their information leaflets. He is also connected with the British Nutrition Foundation – this was set up in the 1960’s by sugar & pharmaceutical companies such as Tate and Lyle ltd, Cadburys, Proctor & Gamble. Denis Mullane’s uncle was chief chemist of Irish Sugar Company.

    Mr Mullane is part of a group rewriting a document on “Fluorides and Oral Health”, for the WHO. This is one of the men who continues to say that water fluoridation is safe & yet the chemicals used in water fluoridation in Ireland were banned for their use as a wood preservative.

    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.”

  5. They can’t be a ‘Skeptic’ til they understand the Science ie ! Otherwise the ‘Skeptics’ are pandering to the Globalists and their Eugenics Program!

    • A true skeptic would oppose fluoridation, based on the poor quality of the science and the gaping research gaps. But they base their opinions on the uncritical acceptance of what authority tells them. Hence, they are skeptics by name only. Paper tigers shilling a fraud and most of them don’t even realise it.

  6. Skeptics, Quackwatcher…. they’re all the same. They think they know better than the rest of us and get to dictate to us “little children” what is good for us. These idiots are probably funded by chemical and pharmaceutical companies, just like the US Quackwatchers, which are being squashed in court for being such dirty liars. You can read all about it at http://quackpotwatch.org/index.html
    Arguing with these idiots is a waste of time because they don’t listen and will not acknowledge any proof that goes against their views. Best to just ignore these insignificant dilusional attitudes as arguing with them only wastes energy.

  7. This was written as a warning to all the Queensland Councils ignoring all the evidence and
    still continuing to chronically poison our population – the war against this disgraceful dumping of hazardous waste known as ‘fluoridation’ is growing.

    Tony wrote:
    It is with great regret and alarm that I note your 7 to 3 decision to maintain the unlawful practice of poisoning the community with the proven toxic hazardous waste of hydroflurosilicic acid.

    Please be advised of the exponential growth in fully informed opposition to this monstrous tyranny,  a disgraceful oppression that has no place in a free and open society endowed with the inalienable right to decline harmful medication firmly established to have serious deleterious effects upon public health and the wider environment.

    This shameful decision comes in complete disregard of the preponderance of irrefutable proof; a growing plethora of compelling documentary DVD’s, ever increasing witness testimony and abundant medical case histories corroborating the hateful fraud of water fluoridation.    

    The crime of forcefully fluoridating the public without community consent and against express wishes and protestation of the majority will be held to account. All parties to this decision stand in full and unlimited liability for their actions.

  8. now declassified information from the US Government showing vaccinations are a scam, ineffective, it’s real effects*

    And they don’t care about truth.

    Fluoridealert.org and tons and tons and tons of other websites, dentists, doctors, they will tell you it’s a scam. For those that say Fluoride is good, stay away from them and educate them.

  9. Good on ya Glen! You have done the right thing blocking this toxic waste. Ignore the so-called Australian Skeptics people that promote Fluoride and attack you with childish insults. You have made a right decision that will safeguard this generation and the next generation of people you serve!

    Have a great one!

    They are probably on the poison-makers payroll aka their employer at promoting Fluoride and brainwashing the masses into basically saying that the majority of people supporting it makes it right, and therefore all valid research, valid aka good science, valid pharmaceutical analysis, valid studies from research points that Fluoride is a major fraud and taker of lives, and ruiner of general health should be thrown in-prison for unhonest commentary. Not that the mainstream media focuses on the issue of Fluoride, or any other issues apart from ‘what’s hot’.

    How can these Poison Mongers really repeat the same stuff over and over again?

    These people are incredibly anti-human, anti-animal. They just can’t resist the pay from the Hexa/Sodium/sillicofluorate companies that also import it from china (Type in: ‘Ali baba fluoride’ in google)

    Really, they don’t give a rats ass about your health. All it really is, a money-fuelled desire by deception. They lobby politicians to support it and they should be exposed by a whistleblower who has the heart to leak out all information so that these Poison Mongerers and the Dental Scammers can be trailed and sentenced. In other words, justice, then banning any contamination of food, water and injecting chemicals into the body – the so-called ‘Vaccination’ that was revealed to be a scam thanks to now-classified information from the US Government and the not-so-recent exposure of it in the UK, the real scientific studies that can be accessed, unlike corporate-sponsered studies which results are modified.

    Trust in common-sense people. Your immune system is protection against disease. It’s okay to be sick, just look after yourself.

    Meanwhile, Fluoride attacks your immune system, though it varies according to genetics.

    And to have it approved and become legally approved shows the holes in our system that must be repaired. Democracy to citizens, not business-people to choose.

  10. I would much rather a hole in my tooth than a hole in the ground!

  11. Meryl ex President of AVN=Australian Vaccination Network, much maligned & “hunted” by hook or by crook….by skeptics of a kind….& by others with vested interest and/or on the payroll of Big-Pharma. Co., ALSO RECEIVED THAT AWARD! Why?
    My Medical Doctor bleeds at the gums if he used fluoridated toothpaste. A relative by marriage has fluorosis on the front teeth. An individual SKEPTIC is the person Sandra credits willing of doing independent research free of VESTED INTEREST or BLIND FAITH, but, from all accounts in recent history, the Australian Members of the SKEPTIC SOCIETY appear to have more than one subtle agenda????
    The toxicity of the F. put in drinking water IS WELL DOCUMENTED for those WHO WANT TO LOOK ans SEE, and not to pretend that black is white.
    Some one please find the real meaning of this … empty spoon…award…ah ah ah! Does it mean that the “S”Society are skeptically admitting defeat? A defeat that compels them to award the …best they have to offer? Sarcastically or not?

    Will someone come forward with a correct answer …or should we ask…Dr.Karl on ABC??????

  12. Who the heck listens to the Australian Skeptics Inc in any case? Are they anyone of importance? apparently not if they haven’t got their skeptical facts in order. I’ve heard it said that “there’s no such thing as bad advertising” so thank Skeptics for helping raise the public awareness of the fluoride issue. Go Glenda Mather for taking a lead! It is a fair bet that if you cop a heap of flack, you are probably on the right track.

    When the ARS TECHNICAL DIRECTOR reacts to getting hit by lightning with this ODD little piece of superficial writing above, John Timmer’s little magazine could well have gone equally odd with an article if a reporter had got hit with a similar severe toxic reaction after drinking fluoridated water!

    First impressions are they write to nervously impress readers, not to accurately inform them. They must have the intention to increase the number of skeptical folk in the world who have just had a look at their magazine – It worked for me. Philip

  14. Greetings President Bruce, 

    I was pleased to note your organisation’s acceptance of the nomination of Councillor Mather for the 2013 Bent Spoon Award. 

    This means that you will research the issue meticulously, unbiased and from both sides. It is about time an independent study was made.

    As a professional research scientist with experience in and a good understanding of fluorine chemistry I have come to the conclusion that fluoridation of public water supplies with the aim of reducing tooth decay in the general public is bad science, bad ethics, bad law and bad medicine. It is one of the four greatest medical, corporate and industrial scams of the twentieth century. 

    The research that has been done supporting fluoridation is at best second rate and at worst bureaucratic whitewash. The primary literature is below A1 and sparse,  most of the rest is reliant on secondary and tertiary publications which are generally incestuous.

    None of the research on fluoridation is definitive but there is mounting evidence of extensive harm caused by it. The most obvious being fluorosis which is widely dismissed by fluoridation supporters as only a cosmetic problem.

    With your investigative capabilities I am sure you will uncover disturbing influences in factors that motivate fluoridation supporters. I think it should suffice for me to urge you to start your research on the issue and the motivation behind this nomination by searching the following authors and researchers and their outputs:
    John Colquhoun, Paul Connett, Christopher Bryson, Declan Waugh and Bruce Spittle. 

    I shall be happy to provide you with any further thoughts and sources should you request them.
    I look forward with interest to seeing the conclusions you reach.
    Yours sincerely,
    Roy Schrieke, PhD (Chemistry) 24.5.2013

    • President Bruce,

      Skeptics are essential in society and my reasons for stating this are:

      a) they study events carefully
      b) are unbiased in their outcome, backed up by science
      c) research information from all angles
      d) give credence to their outcome with all sides of the argument along with scientific and professional data release.

      This is why I find it absolutely incredible that Glenda Mather should be the recipient of such a lowly award, as this lady has considered both sides of the argument and decided to uphold:

      i)”hippocratic oath” first to do no harm
      ii)to uphold the precautionery pinciple.
      iii) above all listened to her constituents and acknowledged that people are suffering as a result of “hydrofluorosilicic acid” being placed in their drinking water.

      As a sufferer, myself, I am skeptical about the information and where the Skeptics Society obtained their scientific data to make such a public comment.

      ps. After a wonderful holiday and four days back home -for no apparent reason, (words of Opthamologist), I have just been diagnosed with marginal keratitis, my right eye overnight suffering from 30 corneal ulcers. Could it be caused by what is in the water????

  15. I would like to post this information also AFA Mildura as I feel it most relevant and the extensive evidence worldwide proves that water fluoridation (pollution with hazardous waste) is a fraud, not safe and not effective.


    Analyses of the data, however, reveal a significant DECREASE in dental caries (caries decline) after suspension of water fluoridation in Japan,49,54 in the Netherlands,55 in Prague,49,56 in the German Democratic Republic,49 and elsewhere.

    Never has any real increase in dental caries been observed after water fluoridation was discontinued.
    Furthermore, many fluoride tablet measures were stopped also.

    In Graz23 (Austria), for instance, the dental caries of children had increased during the fluoride tablet actions in schools since 1956 and decreased after the stop in 1973.

July 29, 2002

    But the usefulness of fluoride has been doubted worldwide for a long time already.

    Over the years at least 12 Nobel Prize winners in Medicine and Chemistry have warned of the associated health risks. To make children take fluoride is not only useless against caries, it is plainly dangerous. Tooth and bone decalcification as a result of fluoride even has a name – fluorosis.

    Fluoride is very reactive and it goes deep into the bones and cells where it is accumulated. Yes, the tooth surface becomes much harder, but the tooth itself becomes more brittle. From a lot of research it seems that fluoride causes joint problems, skeletal deformations, osteoporosis, and that it can even cause bone cancer. Also the brain cannot escape from it.

    Fluoride has a negative influence on the nervous system and the immune system, and in children it can lead to (chronic) fatigue, a lower IQ, learning disabilities, lethargy and depression.

    ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE – Epidemic – Fluoride/Aluminium – By Doug Cross
    In addition to the fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides (hazardous waste pollutants and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc., known as ‘fluoride’) they also add aluminium sulphate
    Australia already faces Alzheimer’s Disease (& Kidney disease) epidemics – STOP ‘WATER POLLUTION/FLUORIDATION’ immediately permanently & irrevocably for all time or face the ruin.

    Dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is fast becoming the greatest public health issue, ever. In the UK the Alzheimer’s Society recently stated that one in three persons over the age of 65 will die from AD – and it’s increasing so fast that in thirty years time the prevalence is expected to treble (do the maths and shiver!). Your children will live with fluorosis, but they will die with dementia.

    Since the evidence that environmental exposure to ionic aluminium salts, such as the aluminium sulphate used in water treatment, is a leading cause of AD. There is a 50% and 150% increase in AD in areas where the water contains only half the permitted maximum of 0.2ppm. Fluoride in water – increases the speed at which it is absorbed and transferred to the brain. Adding Fluoride To Drinking Water Is Literally Insane. Fluoridation is bad on its own, but in the presence of aluminium its effects are becoming catastrophic as our ‘aluminium clocks’ tick away the countdown to Alzheimer’s – fluoride speeds up that lethal clock..

    Studies show there may be grave implications for Alzheimers, Dementia, Attention Deficit Disorder, reduced IQ in children and more –  Neurotoxicity of Fluoride 1996               http://ffo-olf.org/neurological.html

    Brief Extract:
    One of the best-known chemical alterations produced by fluorides is a reduction in cholinesterases, including acetylcholinesterase. Fluorides also directly affect the actions of many of other important neurotransmitters in the brain. Fluorides seem to have a special attraction to acetylcholine. Nerve cells that synthesize this transmitter have numerous projections to many forebrain areas, including the neocortex and deeper areas of the brain that provide information to the neocortex. Not only do fluorides change the amount of the acetylcholine in the 7 brain, they selectively block certain receptors that respond to this transmitter. Fluoride reduces the number of one type of “nicotinic receptors” for acetylcholine. Some other nicotinic subtypes are not affected.10 Added to all of the other alterations in structure and function of the brain caused by fluorides, the opportunity for mental and behavioural changes are almost limitless. While the cholinergic system of the brain has been most studied in regard to the effects of fluoride, it is not the only neural transmitter affected. It is likely that all neural transmitter systems are affected by fluoride intake, directly or indirectly. Other anomalies related to fluoride intake are found in many other chemical systems of the brain.

    There is no known benefit of adding any form of fluoride to our drinking water. Who would want to increase chances of having a less than perfect child? Who would wish to take a chance on a possible reduction of their own mental capacity? Who would want to have their personality altered by fluoride induced alterations in their brain chemistry? Who would want to increase their odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease? Eliminating the addition of fluoride to our drinking water would remove these possibilities. The cost of doing this is zero. In fact it would enrich the communities now adding fluorides to their drinking water. Robert L. Isaacson Department of Psychology and

The dental crisis in USA & Australia after up to 67 and up to 59 years respectively of water fluoridation/pollution prove it’s an absolute shocking fraud and failure.

    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 and co-contaminants 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.  Stop this chronic poisoning of the population, pets and environment immediately.

    This is absolutely obscene that The Fluoridation Fraud has been allowed to continue by successive State and Federal Governments. End the Fluoridation Fraud/Fluoridation Dictatorship now and ban water fluoridation urgently and  irrevocably for all time.

    REMEMBER !!! Despite decades of water fluoridation /pollution (dumping of dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants & co-contaminants (and aluminium sulphate also) into our drinking water (and hence also contaminating food chain) Australia wide; Australia is in dental crisis after WF (pollution) first commencing in Beaconsfield, Tasmania in 1953 as is the USA after 67 years of water fluoridation/pollution first commencing in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1945.
