Fluoride Debate Continues


The debate regarding Fluoride continues to rage, is it good for your teeth or, the teeth of our children. There does not appear to be a survey available, without bias, that goes one way or the other.

We could say that Fluoridisation of the water supply is an expensive exercise, because it is only intended for drinking, but is actually being used for washing clothes, cars, used in showers and baths, also for watering the gardens and lawns.Obviously a more cost effective option, would be to supply those that want it, with Fluoride Tablets, then we would not all be forced into consuming it daily and it would not be wasted on gardens, etc.

The Fluoridisation agent used by most water authorities throughout the world is sourced from phosphate fertiliser plants, and is an industrial grade that can contain traces of Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium and other real goodies. also they have never been tested for safety in humans, see http://www.flouridealert.org/phosphate/overview.htm The more expensive pharmaceutical grade of Flouride, sodium salt is seldom used.

Most dentists, for some reason are in favour of the use of fluoride, but, there is a group in Ireland fighting to have it taken out of the water supplies in Ireland, there are over 60 dentists that are members of the group called "Irish Dentists Opposing Fluoridation".

When you consider all the chemicals that the authorities already put in the water supplies, plus all the other chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers, that also run in to the supply, do we really need to add more.

I live in an area of Australia, where there are large areas of Sugar Cane and Tomatoes growing, farming these crops being one of the main industries.The farmers are frequently spraying the crops, with all sorts of chemicals, our water supply originates from a weir on the river, when it rains, where does all the run off from the farms go, yes, thats right, into the river.

I once asked our local authority Health Inspector, Why does the water supply taste so awful? His answer was "Unfortunately, our supply comes from a weir on the river, and a river is one of natures drains, so we have to put substancial amounts of chemicals, in to the supply, to make it fit for human consumption".

We collect rainwater in a 300 gallon tank, which we use for drinking, tea, coffee and cooking purposes, but we do always boil it before using. The normal supply is just used for washing, bathing and watering.Whatever the future decisions are on Fluoride, we will not be drinking it, if you have children, I would recommend that you do some research yourself, then make your own decision. I feel that we are giving our children far too many chemicals already, without having any choice.
