I refer to the following:
Gladstone councillor Karen Porter said she would go with community consensus.
“I’m getting the feeling there’s a couple vocal people out there who are very passionate, but the rest of the community is (unfazed) with it.”
“A couple of vocal people”? LOL, seriously? You are pathetic.
I’ll give you a chance to read this book and then apologise to your community: http://www.chelseagreen.com/bookstore/item/the_case_against_fluoride
Another letter – May 16:
NOTE the credentials (http://www.chelseagreen.com/bookstore/item/the_case_against_fluoride) – and SALES of this book – are GREAT INDEED – they extend worldwide:
When the U.S. Public Health Service endorsed water fluoridation in 1950, there was little evidence of its safety. Now, six decades later and after most countries have rejected the practice, more than 70 percent of Americans, as well as 200 million people worldwide, are drinking fluoridated water. The Center for Disease Control and the American Dental Association continue to promote it–and even mandatory statewide water fluoridation–despite increasing evidence that it is not only unnecessary, but potentially hazardous to human health.
In this timely and important book, Dr. Paul Connett, Dr. James Beck, and Dr. H. Spedding Micklem take a new look at the science behind water fluoridation and argue that just because the dental and medical establishments endorse a public health measure doesn’t mean it’s safe. In the case of water fluoridation, the chemicals that go into the drinking water that more than 180 million people drink each day are not even pharmaceutical grade, but rather a hazardous waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry. It is illegal to dump this waste into the sea or local surface water, and yet it is allowed in our drinking water. To make matters worse, this program receives no oversight from the Food and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency takes no responsibility for the practice. And from an ethical standpoint, say the authors, water fluoridation is a bad medical practice: individuals are being forced to take medication without their informed consent, there is no control over the dose, and no monitoring of possible side effects.
At once painstakingly documented and also highly readable, The Case Against Fluoride brings new research to light, including links between fluoride and harm to the brain, bones, and endocrine system, and argues that the evidence that fluoridation reduces tooth decay is surprisingly weak.
Looks like you might have egg on your face. Karen you are WAY behind the times – and on the wrong side of history.
Time to change your research habits perhaps?
