Campaign To End Fluoride Another Step Closer

Last night Dublin City Council voted to stop fluoridating water by 22 votes to 20. The decision means they no longer wish to fluoridate the water but stops short of taking it out, rather putting the onus on the government to legislate, or repeal the current Act that demands it be added. We do not believe this is necessary and in fact believe the Councils can stop immediately.

Two members of DDI have been supporting the other anti fluoride campaigners in Ireland by running a background campaign with all the Councillors of ALL parties in the country giving information and advice to convince them that they really can take the final step and CAN stop adding fluoride NOW, and not just vote for the government to repeal legislation (which they won’t).

Dublin is the second major council after Cork to make this decision. Now we will keep the pressure on and continue to talk with the Councillors in other councils around the country. If we can help them get perhaps another 10 councils over the the first hurdle (the vote against fluoride) it will hopefully give them the safety in numbers they are looking for to take the final step to stop adding fluoride, and stop believing they need the government to allow them first. The government is NOT going to dissolve half a dozen councils or more over this issue, it will be game over for fluoride once and for all, and the health benefits to Irish people, and especially the children, will start to show in as little as 12 months for some illnesses.

We hope that Kerry will be next to decide and that other councils we have contacted will also bring motions to council meetings as soon as possible.

Sadly, as you will see by this article, the establishment and its media is still pushing the Fluoride on the public, even this Journal article devotes the vast majority of its space to backing fluoride. However the people do not want to be medicated against their will, and as the Dublin motion said, those who do fluoridate people against their will should be criminalised. To that end we endeavour to formulate a list of Councillors who have voted to continue to add this toxin to our water at the detriment of the health and lives of us and our children in the face of all the evidence to the contrary.We ask the readers to help us in that cause.

    I am delighted that Cllr. Anthony Connaghan’s (SF) motion on fluoride was passed by Dublin City Council. 98% of Europe has rejected the policy of fluoridation and it was banned in Holland in 1976. Numerous studies worldwide have indicated potential harm to human health by adding fluoride to our drinking water. Why are we taking this risk when dental health can be dealt with by conventional methods?

    ^ Can I not just buy a bag of fluoride and add to the tank when I want ? Do really government have to decide what is good for me ? I don’t want fluoride in my water … respect my will ! UN REPORT : http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=20685

    It’s brilliant that Dublin City Council have voted to stop fluoridation of the water, but, who are the two DDI members responsible for this and why aren’t we shouting it from the rooftops and in the press etc. This is the kind of publicity DDI needs right now.

      Mike there are a lot of people pushing for the removal, DDI’s execs are just doing their bit to add to everyone else’s. The fact is the strategy DDI are pushing is to show the councils CAN lawfully remove th substance without government permission. When this happens perhaps then we can claim a little kudos.

    The following are some good sources of information on fluoride and artificial water fluoridation: the Fluoride Action Network, Declan Waugh’s work, the books The Case Against Fluoride and The Fluoride Deception, the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards, and the peer-reviewed journal Fluoride.

    The forced-fluoridation experiment is medical malpractice on an industrial scale. Fluoridation chemicals are the only medications which are delivered via public water supplies. Medicating public water supplies with any chemical violates the human rights and medical ethics principle of informed consent to medical intervention, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since the fluoride dose received from water and other sources is uncontrolled, and is environmentally irresponsible because the vast majority of tap water is not ingested, so the environmental load is vastly greater than it needs to be. Medicating public water supplies means that politicians are subjecting everyone to treatment which no doctor can legally impose on anyone, and is surely the most ham-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

    Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially egregious, because fluoride is a cumulative poison with a half life in the body of around 20 years, there was no good quality scientific research which indicated that forced-fluoridation was anything but harmful and useless in the 1940s and there still isn’t any, the best quality scientific research which has been conducted indicates that forced-fluoridation is in fact both harmful and useless, the fluoridation chemicals which are used are industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced-fluoridation experiment is unethical, illegal, irrational, archaic, pseudoscientific, and all risk, no reward.

    I hope everyone noticed that Jennifer Keane told an outrageous lie about the supposed margin of safety for forced-fluoridation in her recent article in The Journal. She obviously thinks she can get away with anything. Don’t let her.

    No there wouldn’t William. Rather there would be a massive drop in dental fluorosis over the next ten years. children have bad teeth for many reason, not cleaning, eating the wrong food, excess sugar, all common in those populations, plus water is not something you will find as a popular drink in children of those populations, rather sugary drinks are the norm which is half the problem. There would also be a massive drop in childhood illnesses caused by fluoride, how do you feel about that?

    The media is acting as a barrier to truth as we have seen in the articles printed in the last two weeks from the pro lobby that have been stuffed full of untruths that went unchallenged. When they were the media again acted as a blocker. Declan Waugh explains

    The Irish Examiner printed a seriously edited and distorted version of my letter today that completely censored the main points of what I had communicated to them and even had me confused with what exactly they were trying to say. I have written to them to correct the inaccuracies they presented and include the information they have effectively censored.
    Dear Editor
    Thank you for printing some of my letter, however in making the edits that were made you inadvertently misquoted me, presented inaccurate facts and censored what were the most important points of my letter. I would be obliged if you would correct this by printing my response below.
    Sir,
    While I appreciate there are editorial limitations to the length of letters published in the Irish Examiner, the edits made to my letter published on the 8th October resulted in key information being censored and misinformation of its contents, that need to be addressed.
    Firstly, my submitted letter stated that that WHO acknowledged that dental fluorosis can only occur before the age of 7yrs. Your edits stated that the WHO acknowledged that fluorosis can only occur before this age. This statement is incorrect. Fluorosis can occur throughout one’s life, in adults, it is primarily evident as muscleo-skeletal disorders, calcification of ligaments, bone disorders and arthritic like symptoms.
    Secondly, the increase in dental fluorosis in Ireland which occurred from the 1980 onwards, was almost entirely due to powdered infant formula made with fluoridated tap water, which resulted in a 700% increase in dental fluorosis among Irish children.
    Thirdly and importantly; while it is acknowledged that infants in Ireland exceed the tolerable upper intake levels for fluoride, the point of my original letter was, that the recommendations and guidance of the World Health Organization Drinking Water Quality Standards clearly state that where such exceedances occur, national organisations are advised to provide bottled water to prevent overexposure, especially for infants. I also addressed how this should be of particular concern to Irish Water.
    In regard to the UK study measuring fluoride levels in the population, this study included data from a group of 30 adults residing in fluoridated communities in County Donegal, along with over 1300 adults in Scotland and England including parts of fluoridated West Midlands. As I noted in my letter, the highest fluoride intake among all adults tested were observed among people in Donegal. The vast majority of subjects were noted to have excessive and potential harmful levels of fluoride exposure. The edits to the letter published do not explain these facts, as such nobody would understand its context.
    Fourthly, I noted that recent risk assessments of fluoride exposure among adults populations conducted internationally had found consuming tea made with non fluoridated water, can provide the required exposure for fluoride for adults as to make fluoridation of water both unnecessary and potentially harmful for tea drinkers. This fact is of enormous significance to Ireland as we are the highest consumers of tea internationally.
    Finally, as to the need for medical surveillance, my original comments were that I would like to see what research has been conducted in Ireland or elsewhere, to examine how the unprecedented increase in infant fluoride exposure, which occurred from the 1980s onwards, may or may not be a contributory factor to the staggering increases in childhood neurological disorders such as Autism or ADHD, as well as childhood endocrine, metabolic and respiratory disorders, which have increased in the exact same time period as dental fluorosis to epidemic levels.
    From my extensive research of this subject, published data clearly indicates that similar increases in the above disorders have only been found among countries where artificial fluoridation is practiced, yet surprisingly no research has been undertaken in any of these countries to establish any link or association with infant fluoride exposure.
    In ending, I asked if Professor Nunn and her distinguished colleagues, given their personal stamp of approval for continued water fluoridation, would be willing indemnify parents and consumers in Ireland for chronic health disorders that may in the future be found to have been caused by chronic fluoride intoxication? Somehow I think not.
    Yours sincerely
    Declan Waugh

    William you are talking nonsense, Ireland has had fluoridation since the early 60s, a medication in our water and not one single piece of testing or research has been done into its effects on health by the government… and you aren’t concerned? I suggest you go and read everything Declan Waugh is working on at the moment. It will scare the living Jesus out of you.

    Sir, you seem to have a very unhealthy obsession with force medicating people against their will, even people who have a severe intolerance to the chemical. It says more about your William that like oppressive governments in history you believe you derive a right from somewhere to force people to take medicine. Where do you believe you divine this right to make decisions about other people’s health choices? You don’t have that right William and neither does any government. If you don’t understand that simple concept then you are part of a larger problem in this country of people who believe they have the right to remove the rights of others. How would you like it William if I decided that you must take anti depressants and Lithium and statins in your water and food simply because I am concerned a small number of people in the country might be suicidal and or have high cholesterol. I don’t intend to have a GP assess you individually to check you have no allergy to these medications, nor that they might interfere with any other medicine you are taking, I’m not even going to ask if you are getting the same chemicals at any levels from other sources, I am just going to force you to ingest them. Is it ok with you to do that? Unless you can come up with a a logical argument why it is ok for me to make these choices for you William I will ask you to stop spamming this post as you have done before on previous posts.

    If the government are so concerned about dental health why not instead give out free bottles of fluoride water or mouthwash for the express purpose of rinsing teeth.
    There’s absolutely zero reason to be ingesting this stuff.
    Never mind the fact that plenty of countries without water fluoridation have great dental health.

    That isn’t the responsibility of everyone else who doesn’t want to be poisoned is it. It is the parental responsibilty of their parents to ensure they clean their teeth. Not yours or mine. There will always be extremes in populations and you cannot legislate for extremes

    The difference in cavities between fluoridated and unfluoridated is one side of one tooth per child. Do you really think that is a fair trade off when fluoridated kids also suffer from dental fluorosis as well as skeletal fluorosis leading to osteoperosis, neither of which is curable. Are you really going to say yes to that?

    Why is it Selfish to remove a substance used as a topical treatment, from water which will be ingested.
    If you want social programs to help the poor disadvantaged kids the school fluoride mouthwash programs would at least ensure any fluoride was used as it is meant to be,.. as a mouthwash and then spat out,.. not ingested.
    Afterall one doesn’t generally swallow ones toothpaste or mouthwash,.. let alone throw a shot of listerine into a pot of boiling noodles.

    Another disturbing finding regarding fluoridation. It has been known for over 25years from published research in dental journals, that fluoride gives ecological advantage to certain bacteria such as lactobacilli, that are resistant to fluoride by allowing them to grow in the presence of fluoride when other bacteria are inhibited. Numerous published studies have documented that the presence of lactobacilli contributes to demineralization of enamel and contributes to cavitation later in life. Demineralization of enamel also contributes to weakening the tooth.

    Yet another study showing severe health problems as a result of fluoridated water. This one is a scientific study carried out in Spain and clearly links fluoridated water with increased chance of heart disease. When you combine this with studies linking it with fluorosis of young teeth and lowering IQ there is no logical reason why this form of forced poisoning of our population should continue. Unless that is because another side effect is making people more docile and accepting of authority?

      This discussion on here about fluoride in our water is a very worthy discussion but what I would like to know is regarding water why isn’t DDI shouting from the rooftops to have Irish Water disbanded and put back into the hands of the people. Then we will have no problem getting the fluoride issue sorted. DDI needs to be heard nationally through the airwaves and the press. DDI is not shouting loud enough. Take example from Nigel Farage of UKIP. We need someone like him in DDI.

        We are the only party who’s policy it is to dismantle Irish Water and remunicipalise water services under a water bord. We agree completely about exposure, we had our own vocal media magnet in Ben Gilroy but of course some members were too easily rattled by the press and so caused him to step aside and concentrate on his own work in the courts. Very shortsighted and timid in my opinion. We are taking steps to get into media more but we are stymied by political editors so we try and make our own media online.

    The poor unfortunately, are more at risk from fluoridated water. The middle classes buy good bottled water or use special filtration systems to filter out the chemical. Dentists agree that fluoride causes dental fluorosis – fluoride eating the enamel of the teeth. What is it doing to our bones and every organ in our bodies. If you wish to ingest fluoride please eat your toothpaste rather than brushing with it. Dentists twenty years ago were using mercury to fill our teeth which is still causing enormous health problems and doctor’s recommended you smoke to overcome nervousness and depression. Hopefully, we will not have to wait as long for mainstream media to do proper research and report on the enormous health problems caused by adding synthetic fluoride in our water.

      I am open to correction but I have heard it said that filtration does NOT remove fluoride.

        No standard filters no. Reverse Osmosis works
