To whom it may concern,
I note the current warning on the TGA’s website:
I point out that Fluoride supplements are currently marked with (*) and are thereby up for alteration. Let the record show that the current advice for these supplements is as follows:
Fluoride supplements (drops, tablets) should not be taken during pregnancy.
The labelling of fluoride supplement products should include advice consistent with the following:
- *This product should only be used on the advice of a dentist.
- *Do not use if pregnant (2).
I sincerely hope that the TGA has not bowed to the filthy politics of water fluoridation (3) (which are virtually identical across all artificially fluoridating nations); the absurdity of which is abundantly clear from the above advice alone (i.e. do not take Fluoride supplements when pregnant, however, drink as much fluoridated tap water as you like, when pregnant).
If the TGA has been approached by vested interests – who have a financial and/or professional stake in the promotion of water fluoridation – to alter the current advice on Fluoride supplements to reflect more favourably on the water fluoridation program, at the risk of damage to mothers and babies, then the TGA will have some serious explaining to do.
I have screen captured the TGA’s website for the legal record. Therefore, consider this email a public notification, as thousands of people will be receiving this email and this evidence (4), in case of any public health shenanigans on the part of the TGA and third parties, as specified above.
No need to reply.

ASWLA ADDENDUM: NB There is a MAJOR contradiction: “It is safe to drink optimally-fluoridated water while pregnant or breastfeeding.”
