The Fluoride Deception

November 1, 2009

The basic arguments against fluoridation of our water are:

  • it is unethical
  • it is unsafe
  • it is unnecessary
  • it is ineffective
  • it is unscientifically promoted and pushed by corporate interests

The amount of evidence to support these claims is astounding. 

It’s easy to present an argument for either side of any contentious issue if keep that argument out of context and just deal with available facts.  The missing element in so many of these issues is the political and historical context.  Put that in place and all of a sudden one side falls over. 

The best starting point to put the issue in context is the following interview with investigative reporter Christopher Bryson.

Australian news

Unfortunately late last year Queensland, the last remaining state that did not adhere to a water fluoridation program, began to add fluoride to its water supply.  Barely a few months later about 20 times the recommended fluoride was accidentally added to Brisbane ‘s water supplies.

In July this year Australia’s (ironically named) food safety authority decided to allow the voluntary addition of fluoride into bottled water.

And two regional Victorian towns, Ballarat and  Yarrawonga, will also begin fluoridation this month.
