Mr Tony Holmes

Acting Director

Shoalhaven Water Supply

Dear Tony

Further to your letter of 9th January 2013 in which you advised, I do not anticipate a reply to your further enquiries within the 28 day timeframe, please advise when I can expect a reply.

Since writing to the Council I have undertaken further research and have some further issues I want you to include when responding to my previous email of 28th December 2012.

As acting director and engineer for the Council, please advise:

Do you agree the Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride added to the water supply is highly hazardous industrial grade chemical waste? If not, why not?

When handling the Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride what precautions are in place to safeguard Council staff against injury/toxicity under Occupational Health and Safety laws? For example, is staff required to wear gas masks, protective clothing, etc.?

When delivered to Council does the Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride contain any medical warnings if it comes in contact with the skin, the eyes, is inhaled or ingested?

Does the word “POISON” or a skull and crossbones appear anywhere on containers when the Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride is delivered to Council?

As the scientific research clearly shows there is less tooth decay in non-fluoridated countries than fluoridated countries – see attached and below: ,Will the Council continue to add Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride, and its accompanying heavy metals to the Council’s water supply on the pretext these poisons prevent tooth decay? If so, why?

The following link provides scientific proof Sodium Fluoride causes hardening of the arteries and subsequent heart attacks: the Council advised its insurer the Fluoride being added to the drinking water is Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride, highly hazardous chemical wastes? If not why not, as the Council could be subjected to a class action for destroying children’s’ teeth and the environment? the Council aware there are already class actions about fluoridation under way in this country and overseas? As previously advised I suffered a heart attack in February 2010, resulting in my undergoing angioplasty, with a stent inserted into my proximal LAD artery. After the heart attack, I was diagnosed with ischaemic heart disease (Angina), a life threatening illness due to restricted blood supply to the heart. As Sodium Fluoride is a cause of hardening of the arteries, what course of action is the Council going to take to ensure I am not forced to ingest this and other poisons through my drinking water and the food chain (tap water is used in food production) in future?

As Sodium Fluoride, Sodium Silicofluoride and heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminium and copper, added to the water supply by Council are detrimental to my health, what measures will the Council take, ensuring I am no longer exposed to these poisons through the Council’s water supply? See: insurance does the Council have in place to compensate me if my health continues to suffer from the ingestion of Sodium Fluoride, Sodium Silicofluoride and heavy metals currently being added to the water supply?

In your original reply of 13th November 2012 to my concerns about fluoridation, you provided the following response:

Fluoride is naturally present in low concentrations in Shoalhaven Water’s sources. In addition, fluoride is used to prevent dental decay in accordance with the NSW Fluoridation Code of Practice 2011. It is a safe, effective way of providing benefit to individuals of all ages in the community. Extensive research supports water fluoridation as an effective measure in preventing and reducing tooth decay.

Are you claiming the Fluoride naturally present in Shoalhaven water’s sources is the same type of fluoride that is being added to the water supply?

With regard to the rest of your statement, please provide the extensive scientific research proving Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride is safe to ingest and is effective in preventing and reducing tooth decay. Please do not refer me to the NHMRC, as it has never tested these highly hazardous waste chemicals to determine whether they prevent tooth decay, or they are safe to ingest, see attached and below:

The NHMRC research has been restricted to the fluoride that occurs naturally in water. The only fluoride, occurring natural in water is Calcium Fluoride, and that is not what is being added to the Shoalhaven water supply. If you still maintain Sodium Fluoride and Sodium Silicofluoride has been tested and proven safe and effective by the NHMRC, please provide me with the links on their Website.

I look forward to hearing from you concerning these and the other matters previously raised regarding the adding of industrial grade highly hazardous chemical waste to the water supply.

When corresponding, please use email rather than the post as it is more efficient, cost effective and saves the environment.

Yours faithfully

John Teagle
