Fluoride Levels in Melbourne’s Water: Exposing the Red Herrings in Health Department Spin


RESPONSE to Fluoride in safe levels in Melbourne’s water, says Health Department
(The Age | February 17, 2014)

“Health authorities have assured the public Victoria’s water supply is safe after US experts raised concerns about the impact of high levels of fluoride in drinking water on children’s IQs.”

Actually, US experts have not ruled out the risk of fluoride to brain development, at any level in water. What they really say is it cannot “be concluded that no risk is present (in fluoridating nations). We therefore recommend further research to clarify what role fluoride exposure levels may play in possible adverse effects on brain development, so that future risk assessments can properly take into regard this possible hazard” [Learn more].

“Melbourne Water adds less than 1 milligram of fluoride a litre to the water supply to help prevent tooth decay, a Melbourne Water spokesman said, and adding fluoride to drinking water was required by Victoria’s health laws.”

Firstly, yes, the stated purpose is to “prevent tooth decay,” but the evidence for this is weak [Learn more], including within the Australian context [Learn more]. Secondly, “1 milligram of fluoride a litre to the water supply” is the CONCENTRATION, not the DOSE. The dose depends on how much water people drink [Learn more] and how much fluoride they receive from other sources [Learn more]. What this article, therefore, fails to mention is the central issue of MARGIN OF SAFETY [Learn more].

“A spokesman for Victoria’s Department of Health said fluoride was safe and effective.”

When we get beyond the public relations trash and critically examine the evidence, we quickly learn how pathetically weak this mantra actually is [Learn more].

”It prevents tooth decay and the very controlled way it is introduced into Victoria’s drinking water supply should give us no cause for concern.”

This statement is based on propaganda, not sound or complete science [Learn more].

“A review by US chemical experts published in The Lancet Neurology on Saturday said studies, mainly from China, suggested high levels of fluoride in drinking water reduced the IQ of children.”

There is more background to this [Learn more].

“Democratic Labour Party Senator John Madigan said people should have a choice about ingesting fluoride.”

True, and this is based on the universal human right of informed consent to treatment [Learn more], which the Fluoridation Act contradicts [Learn more].

“The Department of Health water fluoridation information line is 1800 651 723.”

Sure, call that number – if you want the bullshit, industry-funded spin version – but if you’d genuinely like to learn more, click here.

      An Untested Chemical – Which Increases Lead Exposure and CRIME – Is Used in Over 90% of Fluoridated U.S. Water Supplies‼

      Yes, it is SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, as the lunatics keep parroting & screaming!

  1. Many people in our very humid areas drink huge amounts – but many people don’t think, it’s not just via our taps that we are forced to consume ‘fluoridated (haz waste polluted) water’ that we are drinking, it’s everything – our soft drinks, fruit juices, beers, everything we drink and everything we eat (and we have to bathe in it) has a dose of POISON ie ‘fluoridated water = which comes from the dumping/disposal of hazardous waste pollutants from phosphate fertilizer industries (aka ‘water fluoridation chemicals’) hexafluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, berrylium, etc., (known as water fluoridation – also added to that haz waste soup is aluminium sulphate); 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.

    Unfortunately for our population, dentists, doctors and ors. and their interests (it is alleged) are recklessly negligent in their `belief` (and the forcing of it on us all) in water fluoridation/pollution. It is only their political power and media power and also the ‘corporate sponsorships’ etc., of dental schools at Universities that keeps these dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants hexafluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, thallium, berrylium etc., known as `water fluoridation` polluting our water supplies (and hence our food chain). (Also added to that hazardous waste soup is aluminium sulphate).

    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 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, berrylium, etc., (known as water fluoridation; also added to that haz waste soup is aluminium sulphate)); 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.
    This hazardous waste and co-contaminants must not be dumped in the air, rivers, oceans, creeks but dump it in the water supplies as a forced ‘medical /dental treatment’ (without ‘informed consent’ I might add !! ) and it magically becomes safe and effective.

    Water fluoridation/pollution with hazardous waste pollutants is not safe and not effective and all those continuing with this dangerous fraud of WF had better stop urgently and irrevocably. 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, all life and environment).

      The globalists/cabal are losing control, because they cannot call the shots anymore!
      People around the globe have awakened to their plans. They cannot survive in the sunshine. They need us to be in the dark an operate out of deceit, because there are too few of them, and too many of us. They are losing the battle on GMO. Anti-GMO movements are making victories every day here and around the planet. Communities around the planet are removing fluoride from their water supply. (They should remove this neurotoxin from salt too & from any other food they’re putting it into!)
      We haven’t seen movement on chemtrails yet, but its coming.

  2. Where are all the pro fluoride shills to explain away the difference between concentration and dose?
    I can’t wait for them to crawl out from under their rocks.
    What about all you miners, construction workers and athletes drinking 10 litres a day?
    Are any of you listening or watching what the authorities are doing to your health?

    • Great questions Peter. It would be nice to see a little response from the public for this one… keep at it. The public should get a tad antsy!

    • Newspapers these days, do not really serve the interest of the people, but for the controllers!

      Ⓐ Mainstream news sources now report ONLY what the capitalist cabal instructs them to!
      Ⓑ “The news” is no longer the news–it’s cabal “talking points,” sound bites, and propaganda headlines!
      Ⓒ You’re letting mainstream TV, radio, and newspapers feed you lies, spin (biased opinion), and babble!
      Ⓓ “Today’s major media journalism is biased, irresponsible, sensationalist reporting that distorts, exaggerates or misstates the truth. It’s misinformation or agitprop disinformation masquerading as fact to boost circulation, readership, viewers, or listeners, and on vital issues lie about or suppress uncomfortable truths to provide unqualified support for state and/or corporate interests – to the detriment of the greater good that’s always sacrificed for profits and imperial aims.”
      Ⓔ All Mainstream News Is Now Nothing More than Cabal Propaganda!

    • “The review acknowledged that “substantially” higher intakes of fluoride from consumption of fluoridated water would result for individuals such as outdoor laborers in warm climates or people with high-urine-output disorders, but these intakes were not quantified” [ http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11571&page=23 ]. “The NRC (2006) identified several sizeable subgroups of the U.S. population that require special consideration due to above-average fluoride exposures, increased fluoride retention, or greater susceptibility to effects from fluoride exposures. Groups known to be at risk of high fluoride intake include those with high water intake (e.g., outdoor workers, athletes, and individuals with diabetes insipidus or other medical conditions) or exposure to other sources of fluoride intake” [ https://afamildura.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/sept7-2011-thiessen.pdf ].
