Fluoridation is unethical because:

It violates the individual's right to informed consent to medication.
The municipality cannot control the dose of the patient.
The municipality cannot track each individual's response.
It ignores the fact that some people are more vulnerable to fluoride's toxic effects than others. Some people will suffer while others may benefit.
It violates the Nuremberg code for human experimentation.

Fluoridation is unnecessary because:

Children can have perfectly good teeth without being exposed to fluoride.
The promoters (CDC, 1999, 2001) admit that the benefits are topical not systemic, so fluoridated toothpaste, which is universally available, is a more rational approach to delivering fluoride to the target organ (teeth) while minimizing exposure to the rest of the body.
The vast majority of western Europe has rejected water fluoridation, but has been equally successful as the U.S., if not more so, in tackling tooth decay.
If fluoride was necessary for strong teeth one would expect to find it in breast milk, but the level there is 0.01 ppm, which is 100 times LESS than in fluoridated tap water (IOM, 1997).
Children in non-fluoridated communities are already getting the so-called "optimal" doses from other sources (Heller et al, 1997). In fact, many are already being over-exposed to fluoride.

Fluoridation is ineffective because:

Major dental researchers concede that fluoride's benefits are topical not systemic (Fejerskov 1981; Carlos 1983; CDC 1999, 2001; Limeback 1999; Locker 1999; Featherstone 2000).
Major dental researchers also concede that fluoride is ineffective at preventing pit and fissure tooth decay, which is 85 percent of the tooth decay experienced by children (JADA 1984; Gray 1987; White 1993; Pinkham 1999).
Several studies indicate that dental decay is coming down just as fast, if not faster, in non-fluoridated industrialized countries as fluoridated ones (Diesendorf, 1986; Colquhoun, 1994; World Health Organization, Online).
The largest survey conducted in the U.S. showed only a minute difference in tooth decay between children who had lived all their lives in fluoridated compared to non-fluoridated communities. The difference was not clinically significant nor shown to be statistically significant (Brunelle & Carlos, 1990).
The worst tooth decay in the U.S. occurs in the poor neighborhoods of our largest cities, the vast majority of which have been fluoridated for decades.
When fluoridation has been halted in communities in Finland, former East Germany, Cuba and Canada, tooth decay did not go up but continued to go down (Maupome et al, 2001; Kunzel and Fischer, 1997, 2000; Kunzel et al, 2000 and Seppa et al, 2000).

Fluoridation is unsafe because:

It accumulates in our bones and makes them more brittle and prone to fracture. The weight of evidence from animal studies, clinical studies and epidemiological studies on this is overwhelming. Lifetime exposure to fluoride will contribute to higher rates of hip fracture in the elderly.
It accumulates in our pineal gland, possibly lowering the production of melatonin, a very important regulatory hormone (Luke, 1997, 2001).
It damages the enamel (dental fluorosis) of a high percentage of children. Between 30 percent and 50 percent of children have dental fluorosis on at least two teeth in optimally fluoridated communities (Heller et al, 1997 and McDonagh et al, 2000).
There are serious, but yet unproven, concerns about a connection between fluoridation and osteosarcoma in young men (Cohn, 1992), as well as fluoridation and the current epidemics of both arthritis and hypothyroidism.
In animal studies fluoride at 1 ppm in drinking water increases the uptake of aluminum into the brain (Varner et al, 1998).
Counties with 3 ppm or more of fluoride in their water have lower fertility rates (Freni, 1994).
In human studies the fluoridating agents most commonly used in the U.S. not only increase the uptake of lead into children's blood (Masters and Coplan, 1999, 2000) but are also associated with an increase in violent behavior.
The margin of safety between the so-called therapeutic benefit of reducing dental decay and many of these end points is either nonexistent or precariously low.

The Government in Queensland may have swallowed the dirt dished out by the American and British Government idiots but the good people of Queensland refuse to play dead and are fighting back. There is growing dissent in the USA against fluoridation and many towns and cities are now overturning previous fluoridation decisions. The tide is turning here in the UK as well. Little wonder when you take a few minutes to look at recent fluoride research which demonstrates how useless and dangerous this muck really is.

People do not like paying out taxes so that some numpty in parliament or the local council can poison innocent people and trouser a pile of dosh for doing it. The same goes for dentists either too corrupt or too frightened to stand aside from the discredited orthodoxy that still tries to sell and profit from fluoride and fluoridation.

If fluoride does have one useful purpose it must be the fact that it is now exposing to public view, the politicians we really dont want or need. I refer to the stupid, the outdated, the corrupt, the dishonest, the deceitful and all those who are a danger to democrasy and the will of the people. Ask them a few straight questions about the efficacy of fluoride or about its safety and you will discover the same tosh they always spout about it being "safe and effective" when its about as safe and effective as arsenic or lead.

Its a wonder they don't advocate putting asbestos in the water so we dontt catch fire. Perhaps they should try the latter on themselves becasue its very hot where these dudes are going to end up if they continue with this deception . You can always tell when these nutters are telling porkies, their trousers move when they speak.
For those who like some truth or facts, please check out this broadcast from Tennessee.

Keep on fighting Queensland you have common sense and intelligence on your side. Say No to Truth Decay... Say No To Fluoride.

PCTs -- Waste, Incompetence and Corruption in Equal Measures.

For the most part, it is not the Doctors nurses or dentists who are the problem with the modern NHS, as per usual its the ever growing hordes of pen-pushers, seat polishers, puppets, parrots, rubber stampers and political appointees, often referred to as Middle Management who seem to be the biggest drain on NHS resources. Naturally these people gravitate to the Primary Care Trusts PCTs where they can do the most damage for the littlest effort.

The PCT is an environment in which expertise, local knowledge, sincerity and good intentions can quickly drown in the quicksand of Newspeak, Reports and Targets so beloved by politicians and mandarins alike. Even apparently sincere people with the best of intentions can soon find themselves on the road to hell in such an atmosphere.

Health Ministers of various political colours have come up with much guff and inappropriate policies over the years. The Tories for example as a first stage of making the NHS a two-tier service, contracted out cleaning services to private companies clearly lacking in thoroughness and expertise. Dirty wards and exponential growth of MRSA or C Dif were the obvious and predictable result.

The current regime quickly grabbed the baton and ran with it, setting about the destruction of NHS dental services and encouraging private dentistry thus placing NHS dentists on the endangered species lists. Here in East Lancashire for example according to the local press, at the last count more than 40,000 people could not find a dentist at all. Little wonder that hospital A and E units are drowning under a tsunami of emergency patients.

In East Lancashire they still were not content and closed the Burnley General A and E Unit despite massive objection from all quarters. Now doctors waste thousands of pounds on taxis up and down the M65 fuelling CO2 emissions, and operations and treatments take place in ambulances. Councillors have told me several horror stories about the results of this madness. How ironic it is that the nearest A and E Unit for patients in Pendle in East Lancashire is now in North Yorkshire. When the NHS is run by such a mindless government, is it any wonder that the PCTs are just pathetic glove puppets?

Only the other morning on BBC Radio Four, like some sick Christmas present, a new report stated that care and compassion in the NHS had declined further during 2008. And what is the governments answer to this type of revelation? Why nothing less than a new web site where the public could award or punish their GP,s in a farcical top ten Beauty Parade. Having tried and failed at moving the deck chairs on the Titanic, they are now re-painting them. What next I wonder? A new movie... “Health Service 2” with Alan Johnson as Lex Luthor??

If you still think senior figures in the NHS, PCTs etc actually know what they are talking about or what they are doing check out the following extracts printed in the Gloucestershire Gazette On the 23rd December 2008. “The PCT is awaiting a feasibility study on the project but members of the trust board said they were in favour of fluoridation.” Chairman Chris Clarke told a meeting of the board last Wednesday: "I can see no problem and it makes an awful lot of sense." Nobby Clark can see no problems hahahaha and fluoridation makes an awful lot of sense hohoho. I think we should pay particular attention to the word “Awful.” Rather obviously, even before any feasibility study or consultation has been carried out, they have already made up their minds to add this crap to Gloucester's water supply.

Perhaps the biggest plonker on Gloucester NHS must be non-executive director David Hardwood who said "There must be a lot of health benefits other than dental. I imagine(sic) fluoride helps with all sorts of things. “ Now that's what you call a vivid imagination freed from all constraints of knowledge and common sense. "I just can’t quite see why we have to go into such detail on fluoridation when companies already put all sorts of cocktails of chemicals in the water to purify it." Doh !!!

Mr Hardnutt not only cannot see, but also has no wish to do so and best of all does not understand the subtle but non the less important difference between treating and purifying the water and treating and polluting the consumer. Make no mistake about it, adding fluoride is pollution. Isn't it nice to know that the health of Gloucester is in such a safe pair of claws.
Those who wish to read the full tosh er... I mean text, can find it here.
Of such arrogance and stupidity are PCTs made and I have absolutely no hesitation therefore in nominating Mr Woodentop and the Gloucester NHS as the first contender for the 2009 Flat Earth Award. If its true that ignorance is bliss, the NHS/PCT in Gloucester must now be approaching Nirvana.
