The QLD state Government wants to mandate Fluoridation of ALL tap water…. I have spent multiple thousands of dollars over a course of 20 years to get fluoride out of my water, along with the chlorine and other additives… What gives our Government the right mandate the slow poisoning of the people?
“Excessive ingestion of fluoride may cause toxic and harmful effects. It is important to note that the major source of fluoride toxicity remains oral hygiene products. According to fluoride poisoning data collected by the American Association of Poison Control (AAPC), tooth paste ingestion remains the main source of toxicity followed by fluoride containing mouth washes and supplements (Table 1). The highest proportion (more than 80%) of the cases of fluoride toxicity was reported in children below the age of 6 (29).”
Fluoride is Toxic, most of Europe DOES NOT have fluoride in their water and studies show NO increase in tooth decay… once AGAIN the Australian public are being conned.
IF people WANT fluoride how about YOU pay, go pop a pill and leave MY water alone… I am tired of having to pay extra money to maintain my health while the Government wastes MY tax dollars to poison the people….. Enough is Enough…

In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children.
“Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ. A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have ‘significantly lower’ IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.” https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2479833

“Based on these findings, and these findings alone, there was clear evidence of the carcinogenic activity of the fluoride in mice receiving 11, 45, or 79 parts per million in drinking water for two years or less.” http://www.icnr.com/articles/fluoride-and-liver-cancer.html
