To Whom it May Concern,

It has come to my attention that your show is going to air an item titled “Fluoridisation and how it protects your teeth” on Thursday, 8/8/13.

I understand that the President of Queenslanders for Safe, Water, Air & Food, Merilyn Haines has offered to present actual facts relating to the issue and Catalyst has not accepted.

If Catalyst does not present both sides of this issue it will surely show that this program is not interested in the truth.

I would like to ask if the ABC, The Queensland branch of ‘The Australian Dental Association’ or the ‘Public Health Association of Australia’ have ever received any type of financial incentive to present a one sided biased perspective.

I hope that your show at least looks at the MSDS for the substance produced by the fertilizer industry that is added to our water supply and I would you to ask the question of why the health industry feels it is appropriate to mass medicate the population without our consent!
