Although around 85% of Australia’s population are forced to drink water that has been tainted with Fluoride, there are still pockets of resistance in the state of Queensland that are banding together to have their water supplies free of Fluoride.
The pro-fluoride lobby in Australia is relatively strong and is funded by the Australian Dental Association. Due to the strength of the pro-fluoride lobby, their ability to influence popular opinion about whether or not to fluoridate water supplies is alarming.
Unfortunately, the pro-fluoride lobby has now turned to fear mongering and lies to ensure that their agenda is believed and swallowed by the unsuspecting public.
During a meeting in the city of Bundaberg, the pro-fluoride lobby resorted to describing how they felt about children who don’t drink fluoridated water as “ soul destroying”.
In fact, the pro-fluoride lobby even had the nerve to described the anti-fluoride lobby as a ‘small but vocal minority’ and that ‘Science does not support them (anti-fluoride activists), science is on (our) side’.
Questions need to be asked as to why the pro-fluoride lobby refuses to acknowledge the science that proves that the fluoridation of water supplies is dangerous and leads to many unnecessary side effects.
However, I am not the only one to highlight the risks of drinking water that has been tainted fluoride. There are many peer reviewed publications and articles that also demonstrate that our government is taking unnecessary risks with our health by adding fluoride to our water supplies.
So why is it that the pro-fluoride lobby seeks the endorsement of Dentists to trick the broader public into believing fluoride is safe and that there are no risk to the health of both children and adults when an article recently published in the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) reveled that more than one-half of the respondents (Dentists) to a survey believed they knew very little about the risks of consuming fluoride and that they needed more training.
At the end of the day, no one really knows how much harm fluoride is having on the health of the broader community and no one can be 100% certain that drinking water that has been medicated with fluoride it is safe.
Even if you believe fluoride is safe, ask yourself the following two questions:
How much fluoride did you ingest today?
Did you consume above or below the recommended safe levels for ingesting Fluoride?
Sadly, NO ONE knows the answer to these two questions, not even Big Brother himself.
