Following their circulation of pictures of badly discoloured teeth caused by Dental Fluorosis, (see top right of Blog) UKCAF the United Kingdom Councils Against Fluoridation have received a communication from the Advertising Standards Authority, highlighting a complaint from the British Fluoridation Society. The pictures which are of the results of “moderate” fluorosis are well known to anyone on the fluoride trail but they seem to have come as an unpleasant surprise to the BFS.
Those in the know will tell you that dental fluorosis had been around in the UK for quite some time and since fluoridation was introduced to Ireland, its incidence there has risen quickly. In many of the fluoridated states in the USA and even in some of the unfluoridated ones where a type of fluoride occurs naturally, it's a common problem. The only temporary treatment for this complaint is a very expensive and none too comfortable process of tooth Veneering which of course is not available on the NHS but IS a nice little earner for dentists prepared to keep schtumn and toe the BFS line.
Because of its disfiguring quality it can have devastating effects on the confidence of people, especially young ones who find themselves ashamed to smile. But despite this its regarded by the promoters and advocates of fluoride as a merely “cosmetic” problem. Dr Ellis Friedman the CMO in Lancashire actually said this to me when I addressed Pendle Councils Scrutiny Committee but fortunately the Council wisely consigned fluoridation to the waste bin yet again.
Unfortunately, only a matter of hours after receiving this complaint, the UKCAF Web Site was “hacked” by persons as yet unknown. This has taken the Site off line temporarily but Doug Cross and Liz Vaughan hope to have it up and running ASAP. They are also investigating what is a criminal act of sabotage or malicious damage.
If you can help in any way, you can fortunately still contact UKCAF via email so anyone wishing to do so should write to Doug Cross at email@example.com or Liz Vaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively you can contact me by phone at 01282- 860985 and information will be relayed in confidence.
Why someone should want to hack a non profit making information site like UKCAF is a bit of a mystery but coming so quickly after the complaint by the BFS, and the publication of the truly excellent report by Hampshire County Council which seriously damages the future prospects of water fluoridation, speculation is already rife that the occurrences may not be entirely unrelated. Perhaps eventually we will be told.
Those out there who would like to see the new Hampshire County Council Report can still read or download it from the Hampshire Web Site here... . http://www3.hants.gov.uk/scrutiny/scrutiny-committees/health-overview-and-scrutiny-committee-2/fluoridation-review.htm and in case their web site should also be attacked, I have taken the precaution of placing it on a temporary site for downloading here ...
