Dear Premier Newman,
I suppose if I mention that your pre-election statement on fluoridation was apparently written by the worst script writer on planet earth, you will respond by citing the NHMRC report (2007) as ‘evidence’ for the safety and efficacy of the practice.
I suppose you will also encourage me to place my faith in the York Review (2000).
I suppose you will restate that fluoridation is endorsed by numerous ‘respectable’ organisations.
I suppose you will try to convince me that the US National Research Council report (2006) is irrelevant to Australia, due to the concentrations of fluoride in water considered by the Panel.
I suppose you will then try to convince me that fluoride is a nutrient.
I suppose you will try to convince me that the benefits to teeth, from systemic fluoride ingestion, are enormous; and that fluoridation reduces inequalities in dental health across society.
I suppose you will tell me that fluoridation, according to the CDC, is one of the “top ten” public health achievements of the twentieth century.
I suppose you will tell me that those who oppose fluoridation are a bunch of unqualified crackpots.
I suppose you will avoid the tricky subject of the actual chemicals used to fluoridate drinking water in Australia (such as Hydrofluorosilicic Acid), whilst assuring me of their safety for lifetime ingestion by all members of the population (at uncontrolled dosage levels).
I suppose you will try to ease my concerns by drawing my attention to the fact that water supply authorities in fluoridating countries, claim they are closely monitoring fluoride levels in the water supply of individual communities.
I suppose you will tell me that’s it’s okay to mix baby formula with fluoridated tap water…
I suppose only time will tell if you are truly brainwashed by the pro-fluoridation lobby; simply a typical politician playing both sides of an issue for maximum votes; or a reasonable man – who will finally realise that to reject the practice of fluoridation OUTRIGHT and lobby for it to be banned by law in Australia – is the only scientifically and ethically defensible choice left to you.
I suppose your secretary will delete this email before you see it.
I suppose if you see it, you will not click on each link provided.
I suppose you will not read the Connett, et al book.
I suppose you will not invite the authors to formally present their scientific concerns to Queensland Parliament.
I suppose you will not hold a press conference to express your outrage at being lied and spun to by Queensland ‘Health’ for all these years.
I suppose you will not demand a Royal Commission into the Australian fluoridation fraud, including a call for those responsible to be brought to justice.
BUT, I suppose, I have been wrong in the past, on occasion.
