NSW Dental Association’s Fear Mongering Disgrace

Article for rebuttal

Lismore fluoride decision sparks dental concerns
ABC News | 15 Aug. 2013
[Related article: Lismore Council decision prompts call for fluoride intervention]

Rebuttal

Point #1: “Doctor Brendan White from the far north coast division of the NSW Dental Association said an independent study found two-thirds of the community supports fluoridation.”

ASWLA hopes there is a good lawyer reading this. Anyone with the guts to see this through?

“Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information.

In appropriate cases of research carried out on a group of persons or a community, additional agreement of the legal representatives of the group or community concerned may be sought.

In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.”
