Avoiding the ‘Mass Medication’ Trap: Things you Need to Know


You’ve all witnessed it countless times before: Anti-fluoridationists in brutal head-to-head battle with pro-fluoridationists, over the issues of ‘mass medication’ and ‘informed consent’ to medication.

The anti-fluoridationists claim that water fluoridation constitutes mass medication and inherently violates the principle of individual informed consent to medication.

In return, the pro-fluoridationists argue that informed consent does not apply in the case of water fluoridation, because fluoride is not a drug or medication.

The anti-fluoridationists vehemently maintain that fluoride is a medication. Neither side will surrender an inch, ever. It’s the ultimate stalemate.

  1. Re: My posting above:

    For the latest Report on Can Dentists & Doctors be trusted when they say Water Fluoridation is Safe & Effective? Use this one http://fluorideinformationaustralia.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/can-dentists-doctors-be-trusted-when-they-say-water-fluoridation-is-safe-effective.pdf in place of the previous one.

  2. I would like to put in this information regarding our Sickness Departments (Health Departments) which I hope is acceptable to you for me to post here:-
    To All Australian Health Departments and Ors. promoting the chronic poisoning of our population, animals and environment via ‘water fluoridation’, we say to you:-

    All of the pro-fluoridationists including all our Health Departments, are reading from the same script – a script which is dangerously flawed and out of date – you all must start learning and speaking the truth – you may start by studying the information links hereunder.

    All those responsible for this will one day all be held accountable and responsible for this willful, arrogant and reckless negligence regarding the chronic poisoning (via water fluoridation/pollution of our water supplies and hence food chain) of our population, animals and environment.

    Our Australian Health Departments are an absolute disgrace and a danger to the health and safety of our population.

    Remember the foods, drinks etc. made in Australia are polluted with these hazardous waste and co-contaminants as every State in Australia is polluted with this hazardous waste known as ‘water fluoridation’.

    The hazardous waste pollution of our water supplies, food chain and environment – this concerns us all – we must all demand that water fluoridation/pollution with hazardous waste, end as a matter of urgency and for all time.

    The people who don’t follow like sheep, do not believe anyone in the DENTAL INDUSTRY and their interests that the dumping/disposing into the water supplies and hence also contaminating our food chain of dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc., aka water fluoridation chemicals, is good for teeth, brains, organs and bodies – to believe this, you would need your ‘head read’.

    For the truth see REPORT Brief Overview of water fluoridation/pollution etc., hereunder; and remember, pro-fluoride fanatics will continue to say and do anything to keep the cities/states ‘fluoridated’ – and their Bovine Excreta of their untrue chant of it being safe and effective is willfully and recklessly negligent. 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.

    Water fluoridation/pollution with hazardous waste fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides & co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc. (plus they add aluminium sulphate to this hazardous waste soup) is not safe and not effective and all those continuing with this dangerous fraud of WF had better stop. No one has the right to treat, medicate, drug, chronically poison/pollute anyone especially without informed consent (or refusal) or to pollute our food chain and environment).

    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 and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium 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.


    Also let us clarify something regarding FLUORIDE ACTION NETWORK (Professor Paul Connett) website http://www.fluoridealert.org – FAN seeks to broaden awareness about the toxicity of fluoride compounds among citizens, scientists, and policymakers alike. FAN not only provides comprehensive and up-to-date information, but remains vigilant in monitoring government agency actions that impact the public’s exposure to fluoride.

I am sure many will be disturbed by the actions of the ADA and when this first happened some years ago, it certainly was disturbing to all Truth Seekers; the lengths to which some pro-fluoride fanatics go, in this case, please note that after Fluoride Action Network and the dot org domain was originally secured (fluoridealert.org ) and before Fluoride Action Network could secure the domain name fluoridealert.com – that the American Dental Association (allegedly) deviously many say, swooped in and ‘nicked’ the fluoridealert.com domain name of Fluoride Action Network’s fluoridealert.org

    So to re-clarify this ‘interesting’ piece of pro-fluoride ‘manoeuvering’/deception by the ADA:-

    Fluoride Action Network Professor Paul Connett http://www.fluoridealert.org

    American Dental Association (who allegedly) ‘nicked’ the dot com http://www.fluoridealert.com

    I guess that’s a pretty effective way to impede people and researchers getting truth !

    This is a VERY SIGNIFICANT POSTING – please read, then SHARE WIDELY amongst your safe-water list:

  6. Great advice….thank you! Will remember this when it’s needed.
    In Queensland mandatory fluoridation has been overturned and the decision handed back to local Councils. Here we call it like it is….even way back in 2003 Peter Beattie’s Qld Government Position Statement on water fluoridation said:- “it is a principle of ethical public health that mass, involuntary medication must never proceed without the express consent of the community”. Then along came Anna Bligh in 2008 and made fluoridation treatment mandatory without our consent.
    It’s hard to get a win on this issue without a ‘push and a shove’ though 16 Councils in Qld no longer fluoridate or have refused to do so.
