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.”

Response: Firstly, the study is not provided for the reader to independently verify the claim. The ABC expects us to blindly accept the ‘authority’ of the NSW Dental Association (sorry ABC, we don’t play that game). Secondly, even if the study were genuine, that means one third of the community is either undecided on fluoridation, or does not want fluoridation imposed upon them. According to the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights:

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.”

Debunking the ‘Warfarin Defense’

It is a fact, as confirmed by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, that sodium fluoride has been used as pesticide, insecticide, fungicide, and rodenticide. So, when opponents of fluoridation state that the government is putting rat poison into public drinking water to treat people, they are correct, and that very same government agrees with them.

Sodium fluoride is one of the water fluoridation chemicals recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council, and it is expressly added to drinking water to treat or prevent the disease of dental caries.

However, proponents of fluoridation make the counter-argument that warfarin is also used both as a rat poison and a medical treatment for humans. They are correct. Warfarin is indeed used both as a rat poison and a medical treatment for lowering the risk of blood clots.
