FAN-Australia drops bombshell on Water Fluoridation
Media Release: Brisbane, Australia 4th April 2011
Merilyn Haines, the director of the newly formed group FAN-Australia (Fluoride Action Network Australia), has found some startling statistics buried deep in official research material by ARCPOH (The Australian Research Centre Population Oral Health at the Adelaide Dental School) that could scuttle the water fluoridation program once and for all.
Haines has found in the ARCPOH statistics that the permanent teeth of children in largely unfluoridated (<5% before 2009) Queensland were erupting on average two years earlier than the children in the rest of Australia, which is largely fluoridated (see the figure below). A two-year delay would negate all the small reductions in tooth decay claimed by dental researchers since 1990. In other words fluoridation doesn't work. Any difference in tooth decay claimed to be due to fluoride is simply an artefact of the delayed eruption caused by fluoride.
Source – Published and unpublished data from 2003- 2004 Australian Child Dental Health Surveys
( unpublished data obtained by Freedom of Information application)
According to Professor Paul Connett, director of the Fluoride Action Network, who is currently on a fluoride-tour of New Zealand, “Critics of fluoridation, like Dr. Hardy Limeback in Toronto, have long pointed out that any reduced tooth decay touted by promoters could easily be accounted for by the delayed eruption of the teeth. Even when this argument received strong experimental support from Komarek et al. in 2005, this has still has been ignored by those promoting fluoridation. But they cannot ignore it any longer: the figures of the dental department research team most associated with the promotion of fluoridation in Australia (and beyond) demonstrate that this delay is real.”
Less teeth erupted for any given age would mean less surfaces available for tooth decay to have taken place. A delayed eruption of one – two years would account for the small reductions claimed in ALL the US and Australian studies published since 1990 (Brunelle and Carlos, 1990; Slade et al., 1996; Spencer et al., 1996; Armfield et al., 2009; Armfield, 2010). These studies have found reductions ranging from 0.12 of one permanent tooth surfaces saved in Western Australia (Spencer et al., 1996) to 0.6 permanent tooth surface saved in the largest survey ever conducted in the US (Brunelle and Carlos, 1990). This is not very much when you consider that there are five surfaces to the chewing teeth and four to the cutting teeth, and by the time all the child’s teeth have erupted there are a total of 128 tooth surfaces. One tooth surface saved amounts to less than 1% of all the surfaces in a child’s mouth. Now even this small benefit has evaporated.
More on the history.
In 1999, the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia’s peak Medical Research body, stated that, “evidence exists that tooth eruption is delayed in fluoridated areas. It has been suggested that a proper comparison of caries rates should involve children one year older in fluoridated areas than in non- fluoridated areas.”
In 2000, the York Review pointed out that none of the studies that they had reviewed had controlled for "the number of erupted teeth per child” (McDonagh et al., 2000, p.24).
In 2005, Komarek et al. did control for eruption of teeth and reported no difference in decay between children living in Belgium receiving fluoride supplements (and those who weren’t) that was relatable to fluoride exposure (as measured by the severity of dental fluorosis).
In 2009, Peiris et al. reported that children in largely fluoridated Australia had a delay in "dental age" of 0.82 years compared to children in largely unfluoridated UK. However, the authors did not discuss the possible reasons for this delay and the number of children involved in the study (about 80 in each country) was not very large.
2011. Now the bombshell – the delay has been found and it is in the official statistics. ARCPOH has failed to respond to several inquiries on this matter. According to Haines, “Surely, this must end water fluoridation. If it doesn't work what's the point of putting this toxic substance into the drinking water and what reason can they possibly have for forcing it on people who don’t want it?”
However, this isn't just about teeth. The finding could be even more significant than that. If fluoride causes a delayed eruption of the teeth then the most likely mechanism for doing so is fluoride's ability to lower thyroid function (see chapter 8 in the 2006 National Research Council review, “Fluoride in Drinking Water.” According to Connett, “Lowered thyroid function in infants would mean slower growth of their tissues and could explain the 24 studies that have found an association between lowered IQ in children and exposure to moderate levels of fluoride in China, India, Iran and Mexico.”
It also raises the possibility that millions of people in fluoridated countries suffering from hypothyroidism have had this condition caused, or exacerbated, by exposure to fluoridated water. Haines’ asks “If ingesting fluoride delays tooth eruption for 1 to 2 years what other effects is it having on our bodies?”
Meanwhile, if swallowing fluoride does not reduce tooth decay, why would any reasonable person, decision maker or regulatory official continue to sanction adding fluoride to the public water supply?
THE SILICOFLUORIDES USED TO DOSE (MEDICATE) DRINKING WATER ARE HARMFUL TOXINS... Read what Dr Myron J Coplan has to say...
Fluoridation ANGER in Western Australia ... see news report...
Chronic FLUORIDE consumption has never been proven to be safe - ever.
The Fluoride Lobby have LIED...
"Safe Fluoridation" is IMPOSSIBLE.
WHEN (IF) THE AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ACHIEVES ITS GOAL (VIA COAG) TO FLUORIDATE EVERY TOWN WITH OVER 1,000 PEOPLE IN ALL STATES BY 2012, AUSTRALIA WILL BE THE MOST FLUORIDATED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD PER CAPITA OF POPULATION. THIS IS A RECORD AUSTRALIANS ARE VERY ASHAMED OF...
FACT 2) It is a basic human right to have public drinking water which is both clean and unmedicated. Fluoride does not treat the water: It treats the people. This is a gross violation of human rights. They cannot control dosage or side effects from overexposure and many subgroups are extremely sensitive to fluoride which damages their health. This policy is discriminatory.
FACT 3) The damage to the environment from the dumping of this industrial waste is incalculable because it bio-accumulates. People's kidneys and the biosphere should not be made to filter industry's wastes via our drinking water - no matter how much money is to be made out of it.
FACT 4) Fluoridation is extremely wasteful of tax payer money. Only 1% of fluoridated water is consumed. The rest is dumped into the environment.
FACT 5) There is no evidence that drinking fluoride prevents caries. The statistics show no significant difference in caries rates between fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities. The fluoride lobby have lied.
What is the Politics of Fluoride? Why do they put so much money and effort into suppressing the truth and maintaining the propaganda? See Professor Paul Connett explain on this short YouTube...
AUSTRALIAN TOUR OF PROFESSOR PAUL CONNETT See small clip from South Australian presentation of Paul Connett...
The tour was a great success! Here is a letter from Paul:
I flew to the Gold Coast in Queensland where I was met by Merilyn Haines and her husband bob. They proceeded to pack me in "cotton wool" in their car and drove me down to Lismore, NSW and all other destinations in NSW until they saw me off on the plane at Port Macquarie en route to my last stop of Mildura in Victoria on Feb 19.
Lismore, NSW. Feb 15. We met up with Ilga Sleja at the Ballina Beach resort. Ilga filled us in on the lawsuit being mounted by Al Olshack against Rous water. If successful this would prevent fluoridation in several towns including Lismore and Ballina. After a quick lunch we went to Lismore where we had an interview on Prime Time News on the Lismore High Street. This produced a good news clip for the evening news which went out through the area.
Ilga was hoping for about 60 people for the evening meeting. however as the start time approached all 100 seats had been filled and more seats from an adjacent room had to be obtained. Our final total was about 150 and my lecture was received with enthusiasm. 3 signed copies of our book were raffled and raised quite a bit of money towards the cause.
Ballina, NSW. Feb 16. The following evening's presentation followed similar lines. Extras seats had to be fetched an the final total was about 120. Again a very enthusiastic response. I was very impressed with the team that Ilga has gathered. A lot of willing hands.
Belligen, NSW. Feb 17. The next day we drove down to Belligen a little attractive town with many living an alternative lifestyle. When polled the town voted against fluoridation but the NSW Health department has forced fluoridaiton on them with sadly - little resistance from the Mayor. Our first stop was at the local radio station where I was given about 15 minutes. Then in the afternoon I gave a shortened presentation to professionals. About 15 came and listened with attention and asked many good questions. After a short break we went into an evening presentation which attracted another 60 people.
Port Macquarie, NSW. Feb 18. After a fabulous breakfast Merilyn, Bob and I drove to Port Macquarie. En route we met up with Sylvia Cole and Wayne (Second name?) near Coff's Harbor. Poor Wayne had a head to head crash which has left him seriously injured. He was on crutches when we saw him, but seems to be making a full recovery. Wayne did all he could to stop fluoridation in Coff's Harbour (including being arrested a couple of times) but nothing seems to be able to stop the NSW steamroller when they are determined to fluoridate a community. Their arrognace is only matched by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. Then on to Port Macquarie wher we met up with some old friends and fesity warriors. Jean who is now 90 years old but still fighting hard. Lisa Interman a former councilor and Caree Alexander, a former dentist, who is masterminding the current efforts. Port Macquarie is in a peculiar position. they have no council - it was chucked out because of irregularities over the mispending of millions of dollars on an entertainment center. The town is led by a manager who inists he cannot do anything about fluoridation because the NSW Health department is forcing him to do it - threatening financial penalties if he doesn't go along. He is simply obeying orders. But the people are not buying this and are hopping mad. We had about 250 people attend a very lively meeting in the local Grey Panthers building. I was very happy to meet up with Peter from Kempsey - another NSW town that has had fluoridation forced upon them. I stayed with Peter and his wife on my last trip to NSW.
Mildura, Victoria. Feb 19-20. It took three plane rides to get me from Port Macquarie to Mildura. I was a little bedraggled on arrival but my energy was revived when I met up with the troops in a local bar which has provided meeting rooms for the group free of charge throughout its campaign. I was very, very impressed by this group - cheerfully led by Daniel Zalec's mum Rosemary (a primary school teacher) ably assisted by Betty Schultz, who played host to both myself and Philip Robertson from Geelong. Unfortunately, Dr. Andrew Harms should also have been there but could not make the drive from Adelaide because of ill health. The impressive thing about the group is that everyone seems to be mucking in and sharing the responsibility in the effort to stop fluoridation in their town. On Sunday morning Feb 20 we had a small meeting (about 20) with professionals, who lisened intently and had plenty of lively questions. One doctor was appalled to hear that the fluoridating chemcials used were hazardous waste from the phosphate fertilizer industry and has vowed to get his colleagues and his staff mobilized on this issue. As I write we are preparing for a public meeting this evening. The organizers are hoping for at least 500 people.
I will forward the number in a short email after the meeting. Tomorrow I fly to Sydney and return to the US on Feb 22 with meetings scheduled in Sacramento on Feb 23 and 24. I should be home in Canton, NY on Feb 26.

WATER FLUORIDATION IS A FAILURE AUSTRALIAN ADULT DENTAL SURVEYS PROVE
Very few countries in the world fluoridate their water supplies. Australia, like the USA are exceptions. Fluoride chemicals are now added to the water supplies of almost all Australian states and Capital cities.
The Australian state Queensland, however was virtually un- fluoridated until early 2009 – and this has allowed a comparison of a virtually un-fluoridated state to states that have been heavily fluoridated for 40 years.
Most of the adults in Queensland have never been exposed to water fluoridation – most of the adults in the other 7 Australian states and territories have been exposed for up to 40 years - many since birth.
The Australian National Adult Oral Health Survey 2004-2006 allows a comparison of the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of water fluoridation, a comparison that has never been done in the USA.
In Australia, similar to the USA, water fluoridation was promoted so heavily by dental authorities that almost all Australian states apart from Queensland, have had at least 70 % - up to 100% of their population’s drinking water fluoridated since the 1960s and early 70s.
Until early 2009 Queensland only had a few small towns and one city (Townsville) with fluoridated water when the Queensland Premier - Anna Bligh forced fluoridation on Queensland’s population.
Now - evidence obtained from reports of the Australian National Adult Oral Health Survey ( 2004 -2006 ) shows clearly that water fluoridation has failed to reduce tooth decay. Adults in all the other Australian states have on average just the same amount of tooth decay as adults in Queensland.
Sourced from Table 12 of individual state reports 2004-06 National Survey of Adult Oral Health (The higher the DMFT - the more teeth
The DMFT data is sourced from the 8 State and Territory reports of the 2004-2006 National Adult Oral Health Survey ( Australia ) .

Extracts and information from each report which allows comparison of adult tooth decay in the un-fluoridated state( Queensland) to the heavily fluoridated states of Australia.
The National Survey of Adult Oral Health 2004-06 (Australian Capital Territory ) – Page 30 - The average number of affected ( DECAYED ) teeth was strongly associated with age, being highest in people aged 55 years or more ( 22.7 teeth ).

The National Survey of Adult Oral Health 2004-06 (Victoria ) Page 30 The average number of affected ( DECAYED ) teeth was significantly associated with age, being highest in people aged 55 years or more ( 22.5 teeth ). This was 1.5 times that of those aged 35 to 44 years ( 15.1 teeth ) and five times that of the 15 to 34 years age group ( 4.4 teeth )........ the overall average DMFT number was 12.8 decayed teeth (for Vic adults aged 15 to 99 years) ( overall Australian average was 12.8 decayed teeth In 2007 seventy seven percent of the Victorian population had a fluoridated water supply.
The National Survey of Adult Oral Health 2004-06 (Western Australia) Page 30 The average number of affected ( DECAYED ) teeth was significantly associated with age, being highest in people aged 55 years or more ( 22.7 teeth ). This was 1.6 times that of those aged 35 to 44 years ( 14.5 teeth ) and five times that of the 15 to 34 years age group ( 5.4 teeth ) the overall average DMFT number was 13.1 decayed teeth (for WA adults aged 15 to 99 years) ( overall Australian average was 12.8 decayed teeth In 2007 ninety two percent of the Western Australian population had a fluoridated water supply.
The range of variation for the number of decayed teeth ( DMFT) in adults aged 15 to 34 years was from 2.6 (Australian Capital Territory ) to 5.4 (Western Australia ) The DMFT for Queensland adults ( virtually un-fluoridated ) was 5.0.
The range of variation for the number of decayed teeth ( DMFT ) in adults aged 35 to 44 years was from 12.9 (Australian Capital Territory ) to 15.1 ( Victoria ) The DMFT for Queensland adults ( virtually un-fluoridated ) was 14.6.
The range of variation for the number of decayed teeth( DMFT ) in adults aged 55 years and older was from 22.1 ( South Australia and Northern Territory) to 23.4 in Tasmania. The DMFT for Queensland adults ( virtually un-fluoridated ) was 23.1.
The range of variation for the number of decayed teeth( DMFT ) in adults aged 15 to 99 years overall was from to 10.7 ( Northern Territory) to 13.4 ( Tasmania) The DMFT for Queensland adults ( virtually un-fluoridated ) was 13.1.
Queensland adults who have had very limited exposure to fluoridated water have an equivalent amount of accumulated tooth decay to adults in all the other Australian states which had been heavily fluoridated for 40 years.
It is obvious that water fluoridation does not prevent or cure tooth decay, nor act as a “constant repair kit for life” as dental and health authorities claim.
Queensland adults who have not had a fluoridated water supply have on average no more tooth decay than adults who have consumed fluoridated water for a large part, or even most of their lives.
It is time that fluoride promoters acknowledge that fluoridation of water supplies is a dismal failure.
It is time to end unethical mass medication of the population through their our drinking water.

HEAVY METALS, CANDIDA AND FLUORIDE - CHAOS IN THE BODY: Fluoride is the most corrosive element on the periodic table. It causes acidosis and enzyme disruption, inhibits the pineal gland (our body clock) and its production of important antioxidants such as melatonin. Fluoride depletes magnesium which leads to insulin resistance and high blood sugar, immune system disorders, cardiovascular disease, thyroid disruption, chronic fatigue, mental illness, and the accumulation of more heavy metals. This in turn sets the body up for infestation from parasites, virus, bacteria and fungi like candida... a downward spiral.
FLUORIDE IS A TOXIC POISON - AN ENZYME INHIBITOR. IT ACCUMULATES OVER TIME, CORRODES AND AGES THE BODY PREMATURELY. FLUORIDE IS A BIOLOGICAL STRESSOR WHICH DEPLETES MAGNESIUM. YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO BE MAGNESIUM DEFICIENT FOR TOO LONG OR IT CAN LEAD TO HEART DISEASE, STROKE, IMMUNE SYSTEM DISORDERS, CANCER AND MORE. THIS IS BECAUSE MAGNESIUM IS USED IN OVER 325 DIFFERENT BIOCHEMICAL PROCESSES. WHEN MAGNESIUM IS LOW THE BODY CANNOT DETOX PROPERLY AND YOU CAN ACCUMULATE EXCESSIVE FLUORIDE, WHICH INHIBITS NORMAL CELL METABOLISM. LOW MAGNESIUM COMPROMISES THE BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER - ALLOWING TOXIC EXPOSURES TO HEAVY METALS IN THE BRAIN. Read more at www.elektralife.com
WATER TREATMENT OFFICER QUITS JOB OVER FLUORIDATION OF ROCKHAMPTON
Graham Demeny stands outside Fitzroy River Water’s Glenmore treatment plant yesterday after resigning from his job.
AFTER 15 years loyal service with Fitzroy River Water, Graham Demeny says his career is down the gurgler because of fluoride and an uncompromising council.
Graham, who was responsible for making Rockhampton’s drinking water safe, resigned earlier this month after his request for a transfer within Rockhampton Regional Council was refused.
He said he questioned the safety of adding fluoride to the city’s water supply and ethically wasn’t prepared to do the job.
DESLEY BOYLE AND THE CRISIS OF WESTERN PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY
Open Letter by Brent Melville (journalist) Gold Coast. 14 December 2009
...Are you aware Mrs Boyle, that Queensland bureaucrats were caught falsifying dental statistics and a detailed complaint about this was made to the Crime and Misconduct Commission? An investigation, only released after an FOI request, found “incorrect” interpretation of data in regard to tooth decay rates between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas.
Also Mrs Boyle, why do you so carefully deceive your electorate about ‘the majority who support fluoridation’? Did you have a referendum? Isn’t it true Mrs Boyle, that the Bligh administration simply pulled the fluoride referendum provision out of the legislation? Isn’t it also true Mrs Boyle, that you and other State Labor MPs voted to change the law to allow yourself and other elected representatives to lie to Parliament? Did you consider, Mrs Boyle that lying to Parliament is lying to the people of Queensland?

SOME DOG FOODS DELIVER TOXIC DOSES OF POISON - FLUORIDE
Dr. Mercola www.mercola.com
With the memory of the melamine pet food scare still fresh in the minds of many, the Environmental Working Group is publicizing a new threat: potentially toxic doses of fluoride in dog food.
An EWG analysis found troubling levels of fluoride in 8 of 10 dog foods tested. The concentration of fluoride was up to 2.5 times higher than the safe level the EPA sets for drinking water. Some puppies may be exposed to five times this limit.
The fluoride in dog food originates in bone meal and animal by-products. EWG recommends choosing dog food brands free of bone meal and meat by-product ingredients like chicken by-product meal, poultry by-product meal, chicken meal and beef meal. Read more...

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PROFESSOR PAUL CONNECT OF FLUORIDE ACTION NETWORK
Don't mess with Texas
If you can find time out of your busy schedule, take a look at the two-part video of citizens testifying before the Austin Environmental Board on December 2. When I watched this tape - it seemed to me that I was watching something which is being played out in many communities across the world. We see both ordinary citizens and specialists, who have been shocked after reading up on this stupid practice, speaking truth to power. It had my adrenaline flowing - as I am sure it will yours. A few mistakes but that is only to be expected and dwarfed by the largest mistake made in public health policy in the twentieth century! It would be very powerful to watch this side by side with our DVD Professional Perspectives on Water Fluoridation. We could call it, "And now the people speak." Let us know what you think about this video.

DEMAND FOR VICTORIAN HEALTH MINISTER DR CARNIE'S RESIGNATION
December 4, 2009
Could this be a sign of things to come for Queensland's Health Minister Paul Lucas?
The Anti-Fluoridation Association of Mildura, along with other Victorian safe water groups, and a number of health and scientific professionals, are calling for the resignation of Dr. John Carnie, Victoria’s Chief Health Officer. The call comes as community discontent with the Government’s mandatory fluoridation policy grows. Today, the following letter was sent to Victoria's Health Minister Daniel Andrews.
Dear Minister Andrews,
We are outraged by your government's continued efforts to force fluoridation on communities without giving citizens a chance to vote on the matter. In this matter the behaviour of Dr. John Carnie has gone beyond anything one would expect or should tolerate from a civil servant. Let us explain.
Most recently Dr. Carnie’s refusal to respond to the basic questions put to him by a number of Australian and international health and scientific professionals, in line with his “no debate policy,” has outraged many in Mildura and around the world.
While Dr. Carnie may truly and honestly believe that fluoridation is safe and effective, public health policy needs to be more than a belief system. It needs to be supported by honest and accurate science that can be defended when challenged. Dr. Carnie has:
a) made statements to the public which are inaccurate as well as others which are biased and misleading (see attachment 1)
b) refused to defend his beliefs in public debate (see attachment 2)
c) failed to answer direct questions addressed to him by Australian and international experts (see attachment 3).
Despite this he is still prepared to force this measure on communities, even when a sizeable number of people in those communities, who have researched this issue for themselves, have made it clear that they do not want to be forced to drink fluoridated water. The only way to determine whether such resistance to this measure is coming from a minority of the population or a majority is to give the electorate of each community the chance to vote on the matter. But this opportunity has again been denied to them by Dr. Carnie. This is a blatant example of the "arrogance of power."
When politicians behave in this way, at least the electorate has a chance to make their feelings known at the next election, but Dr. Carnie is not a politician but a civil servant making his arrogance immune from normal democratic processes.
The only alternative for those who believe that Dr. Carnie is failing in his job to protect the health of the people, as exemplified by his unwillingness to answer basic questions on a practice he is prepared to force on them, is to seek his resignation. What other recourse do citizens have when their democratic rights are denied?
Thus, we call upon the Minister to set in motion proceedings which will examine this complaint and if he feels that it has merits to remove Dr. Carnie from his position forthwith.
We would add that this issue goes well beyond the dangers posed by fluoridation. If it becomes clear - as it has in this case - that public health policies are not based on sound science that can be defended in public and in writing -it will erode the public's trust in the institutions set up - at their expense - to protect their health and the environment. The loss of that trust threatens our society in many ways and should not be taken lightly by the politicians running Victoria.
As you will note from the signatures below, this issue is receiving attention well beyond Victoria and the shores of Australia. We expect the worldwide attention to grow as the shocking behaviour of Dr. Carnie is revealed to a larger audience. As Martin Luther King Jr once said, “injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.”
We look forward to hearing your swift response to this complaint.

BALRANALD'S RESIDENTS VOTED 89% AGAINST FLUORIDATION OF ITS WATER
Published in the Sunraysia Daily, Mildura, VIC, Australia, 17 November 2009
More than 12 months ago, the New South Wales Department of Health proposed that Balranald's water be fluoridated. Fluoride has been hailed by some as a way to ensure the dental health of the community, and condemned by others as a poisonous substance not to be consumed.
In the recent poll, a total of 414 residents voted whether they want Balranald's water fluoridated, with 370 voting against and 44 voting for the proposal. Balranald Shire Council general manager Chris Littlemore said NSW Health held an information session when the issue first arose, but only 25 to 30 residents attended.

30 years after compulsory vaccination became US Law: US Court issues an injunction to stop it and to hold the the government and drug companies responsible for reactions. A Preliminary Injunction to stop mandatory vaccinations has been issued in the United States District Court of New Jersey. This comes after a federal lawsuit opposing forced vaccines was filed in that court by Tim Vawter, pro se attorney, on July 31st with the federal government as defendant.
When the judge signs the Preliminary Injunction, it will stop the federal government from forcing anyone in any state to take flu vaccine against their will. It will also prevent a state or local government from forcibly
vaccinating anyone, and forbid any person who is not vaccinated from being denied any services or constitutional rights. (Read More)

URGENT POSTING ABOUT SWINE FLU VACCINE - JANE BURGERMEISTER!!!
SEE LATEST VIDEO INTERVIEW BELOW WITH INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST JANE BURGERMEISTER CALLING FOR GLOBAL MASS PEACEFUL RESISTANCE AND... "Say NO to the Vaccine'. There are now warnings coming from many credible medical sources around the world regarding the potential health dangers of this untested vaccine.
Please watch this powerful interview with Jane Burgermeister of Austria who cites evidence that the vaccine actually contains weaponised avian and swine flu, and that the program of starting a dangerous pandemic will start in OCTOBER 2009. She calls for a global mass peaceful resistance.
WARNINGS FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SWINE FLU VACCINE MANUFACTURER CSL:
Australia has purchased 21 million doses of swine flu vaccine with commencement of the vaccination program from 30 September 2009. Nikola Roxon says only one dose is required. That accounts for one dose for every single man, woman, and child in Australia. How do they plan to make the vaccine dissenters get the jab? Are you going to take the risk of an untested vaccine with no clinical trials and with dangerous adjuvants and a genetically modified (weaponised) swine/avian flu that will make people carriers and spreaders of the flu? See the warnings on CSL's package inserts...
THE VACCINE MANUFACTURER CSL SAYS: FOR ADULTS OVER 18 YEARS OF AGE. CAUTION WITH PREGNANT OR LACTATING WOMEN BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT DONE CLINICAL STUDIES AND DON'T KNOW IF THERE ARE ADVERSE EFFECTS ON THE FOETUS OR ON FERTILITY.
Are you willing to take the risks?
CSL PACKAGING EXCERPTS:
"Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is an inactivated influenza virus vaccine indicated for active immunization of persons ages 18 years of age and older against influenza disease caused by pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus.
This indication is based on the immune response elicited by the seasonal trivalent Influenza Virus Vaccine manufactured by CSL (AFLURIA®). CSL’s Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine and AFLURIA are manufactured by the same process. There have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with AFLURIA...."
" Clinical studies are ongoing with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine to determine the optimal dosage, number of doses and schedule."
" Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is supplied in two presentations:
• 0.5 mL preservative-free, single-dose, pre-filled syringe.
• 5 mL multi-dose vial containing ten doses. Thimerosal, a mercury derivative, is added as a preservative; each 0.5 mL dose contains 24.5 mcg of mercury.

Two bits of good news:
1) On September 15 the citizens in Wakefield, Nebraska, voted down fluoridation by a margin of over 10 to 1.
2) MILDURA CITIZENS' FIGHT AGAINST THE INTRODUCTION OF FLUORIDE:
For once an Australian newspaper (Sunraysia Daily) has given the opportunity for a professional response to the wildly inaccurate claims (and outright deception) of Australian health authorities. Dr. James Carnie, the chief health officer for Victoria, and a bunch of yes men Carnie gathered from a few health groups, produced some of their usual spin in an effort to convince the citizens of the small town of Mildura that there is nothing wrong with fluoridation. In the process, they grossly misrepresented the NRC review findings, the ADA advice on not using fluoridated water in bottle feeding and the Chinese IQ studies. Typically they hid behind the review by the Australian NHMRC in 2007 which dismissed the relevance of the landmark review by the US NRC and then produced what was little more than a rehash of the York Review, but without the caveats (see Trevor Sheldon's letter to the House of Lords, www.fluoridealert.org/sheldon.htm ).

MAGNESIUM HELPS BUFFER THE BODY AGAINST
ADVERSE EFFECTS OF FLUORIDE
...but magnesium's deficiency contributes to a higher virulence of fluoride when ingested.
Australian soils (and therefore the foods grown in it) are severely deficient in magnesium, yet it is the most important mineral to the body and involved in numerous biochemical processes. The bones prefer magnesium. Without magnesium the calcium can't get into the bones, and settles instead in soft tissue and joints. Magnesium calms the whole nervous system, is used by cells in the production of ATP (energy), normalises blood pressure, normalises the stickiness of blood platelets (helps thrombosis sufferers), supports the cardiovascular system, alleviates eczema and psoriasis, helps detox and digestion, reduces pain and inflammation, promotes better sleep and helps balance hormones - and it's an anti-ageing 'softening' mineral! (Click here for document showing common symptoms of magnesium deficiency).
Without magnesium the bones take in more fluoride as a substitute. On top of short supply, if you stress the body in any way (emotional or physical), it will consume more magnesium.
Magnesium deficiency causes the blood-brain barrier to weaken and therefore let in pathogens or heavy metals such as aluminium. As the fluoride compound usually also contains aluminium and lead (because fluoride is attracted to them), if the blood-brain barrier becomes weaker you are inviting trouble by ingesting fluoride. Studies have shown that bodily accumulation of lead and aluminium in fluoridated communities is higher - and most especially in children.
It's a downward spiral... unless you can sufficiently replenish your reserves. To give your body a buffer and counter the toxic and ageing effects of inadvertently ingested fluoride (via the food supply), absorb magnesium chloride through the skin every day. How? Swim in the ocean for one hour every day... OR,
EUROPEAN COURT RULING SPELLS END TO WATER FLUORIDATION!
Doug Cross, 10th May 2009 (www.ukcaf.org)
Fluoridated water must be treated as a medicine, and cannot be used to prepare foods. That is the decision of the European Court of Justice, in a landmark case dealing with the classification and regulation of 'functional drinks' in member states of the European Community. (HLH Warenvertriebs and Orthica (Joined Cases C-211/03, C-299/03, C-316/03 and C-318/03) 9 June 2005)...
Implications for international trade in food products...
But the ruling also has an equally profound implication for export trade in processed foods and drinks. The Court stated that even if a functional food product (or a food containing it) is legally marketed as a food in one member state, it cannot be exported to any other member state unless it has a medicinal licence. So any company making a consumable product using fluoridated water in its preparation or as an ingredient cannot now export that product to any other state in the EC, even if their product is permitted in their home state.
The economic implications are enormous. Not only does the ruling ban the use of fluoridated water for all retail catering and wholesale food processing in the UK and Ireland, it also prohibits such trade from these states to other member states of the EC. But it goes much further than even this, because if British and Irish processed foods from fluoridated areas cannot be exported to the EC, this prohibition must also apply to the importing of such products into EC member states from any other country that practices water fluoridation. The decision effectively bans all processed food products from countries such as the USA, Australia and New Zealand, unless they can be positively proven to have been prepared using only water that was not fluoridated.
Do our politicians know what they are doing? Do those beverage companies realise they will effectively cut out exports to Europe of any fluoridated products? Below is a letter to our ministers pleading for them not to allow bottled water to be fluoridated due to adverse health consequences... Even if they don't want to admit the health dangers... at least they should see the disastrous economic consequences. Why would they want to do it?
NO FLUORIDE IN BOTTLED WATER - PLEASE!

SARKOZY'S SECRET PLAN FOR MANDATORY SWINE FLU VACCINATION

The French Government is developing secret plans to impose mandatory vaccination of the entire French population, allegedly against possible Swine Flu disease according to reports leaked in a French newspaper. The plan is without precedent and even defies recommended public health advice. Pharmaceutical giants benefit from the move, as the Swine Flu increases the trend towards the militarization of public health and use of needless population panic to advance the agenda.

KIDNEY IMPAIRED, DIABETICS AND ABORIGINALS"
OPEN LETTER TO BALLINA SHIRE COUNCIL FROM QUEENSLANDERS FOR SAFE WATER (AIR & FOOD) INC. - MERILYN HAINES
The constant and belligerent stonewalling by the Queensland government, as well as other global policymakers, of calls by many independent doctors, scientists and citizens not to fluoridate highlights that we are up against a gargantuan global power that has an agenda of forcing the whole world into fluoridation. Why? Because they care so much about people's teeth?
Why not spend tax payers' money on better hospital care? Better education? Wouldn't that make more sense? Why are their priorities geared more in favour of fluoridation? Do they think it's better to take risks with organ failure, bone deterioration or mental illness as a result years of chronic fluoridation - all for a better set of teeth? And that point alone should be enough to stop fluoridation - let alone the fact that there is no hard evidence that fluoridation of drinking water stops tooth decay. The most recent studies have revealed no statistical difference in caries between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. There is a strong correlation though with caries and lower socio-economic status and quality of nutrition.
So what are the statistically significant differences between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas? When it comes to osteosarcoma, thyroid disease and hip fractures - all of these are increased in fluoridated areas. Even crime rates are higher in fluoridated areas, which scientists believe is because fluoride binds with lead.
Do they really expect people to believe that all that money and effort to subvert the truth and spread propaganda about fluoride is for people's best interest? Do they think it's okay to ignore the warnings of thousands of scientists, health practitioners and toxicologists around the world basing their warnings on a mountain of highly credible published peer reviewed studies? The latest studies have used the highest level of scientific method - not like the ones from the 40's and 50's that pro-fluoride government officials, corporations selling fluoride chemicals, and their agent associations are relying on. If you believe their propaganda you've already had too much fluoride on the brain!
This is not about religious belief. It is about proper, responsible scientific method and the precautionary principle. Instead of making decisions about policy based on advice from expert toxicologists, government officials chose to take advice from dentists - as if they would know the TOXICOLOGICAL implications for kidney patients, diabetics, Aboriginals, babies and the chemically sensitive.
Why not allow communities to decide for themselves via ballot if they wish to take the risks and ingest fluoride? Why not help those that choose not to ingest these chemical medications to be compensated and financially assisted to have an alternative drinking water supply? The Bligh government's jackboot approach is simply not tolerable and certainly not sustainable as fluoride's toxic accumulation over time puts more pressure on people's health and the environment.
Remember, the first time scientists experimented with using fluoride to medicate drinking water to achieve a mind-alterning effect was in Nazi concentration camps... closely followed by the Russian gulags. This practice allowed them to manage the camps using less guards because fewer prisoners protested against their abject conditions or the atrocities being carried out their neighbour.
The bailout strategy will only put all the wealth of the world into the hands of the very few who control the financial system so they can buy up the real assets for a song and then force austerity measures and cost cutting on communities and the tax paying productive end of society. The tax payers are being used to underwrite a massive global scam to impoverish people with debt and liability they will not be able to repay possibly for generations to come. They will be forced to surrendour all their civil liberties and rights in a global push for totalitarian control of all utilities - water, sewerage, food, energy etc. It will be a global monopoly that would make any Nazi salivate in anticipation - if they get away with it.
that compete to occupy the same sites in the body. Read this excellent Australian fluoride history by Selwyn Johnston about the adverse health effects on animals when there was not enough magnesium in the soil and how it made any fluoride exposure so much more toxic. Excerpt:
"Cattle can only tolerate about 6 mg’s of fluorine per kilo of weight. Sheep tolerate about 22 mg’s per kilo, horses 36 mg’s and pigs 60 mg per kilo of weight. Lucerne and clover are highly tolerant of fluorine and take it up as part of their transpiration cycle.
When a cow is poisoned with fluorine the sequence goes like this; the fluorine kills several of the ruminants bacteria, allowing the remaining gas producing bacteria to have a population explosion, which inflates the cows rumen, which in turn stops the diaphragm from working, and so she suffocates. A great example of ‘cause and effect’, which are always removed in space and time!"
THE BEST FLUORIDE SONG EVER!!!
LISTEN here to Hazel Eyes with Davo and the Gang sing:
"Waterfalls of Fluoride"

Avoid foods and beverages made with fluoridated water (not necessarily listed on the label). Ask your favourite restaurants and cafes to install fluoride filters for water used in making their food and beverages - and keep enjoying your cappuccinos! MOTHERS - PROTECT YOUR BABIES!!! Do not mix infant formula with fluoridated water - or use reconstituted juice (which is most often made up using fluoridated water - many with 0.7ppm fluoride concentrations). Babies can drink up to 4 times their bodyweight in liquids and will be getting a much higher more severe dosage over and above the recommended safety limit.

TO STOP WATER FLUORIDATION... http://www.petitiononline.com/4001k/
THE QUEENSLAND WATER PETITION
REQUESTS THE PARLIAMENT TO GRANT A REFERENDUM OF THE PEOPLE ON
1) FLUORIDATION AND
2) DRINKING OF RECYCLED SEWAGE
- as per the people's democratic right of choice not to be medicated or to be forced to drink re-used water from sewage.
"I respect your right to smoke, but don't force me to do it."
NEARLY 3,500 PETITION SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN TABLED IN PARLIAMENT BY RAY STEVENS UP TO THE LAST SITTING OF 2008. MORE SIGNED PETITIONS ARE FLOODING IN AND WE ARE CLOSE TO REACHING 5,000 SOON, BUT WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. KEEP THEM COMING IN AS IT HAS A PROFOUND EFFECT ON THE PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN - AS DOES THE PROGRESS OF THE PEOPLE'S CLASS ACTION. FLUORIDATION, THE POISONING OF OUR WATER SUPPLY, WILL BE A DEFINING ISSUE IN THE UPCOMING QUEENSLAND STATE ELECTIONS. THE ISSUE OF FORCED MASS MEDICATION WITHOUT CONSENT AND WITHOUT MEDICAL MONITORING OF QUANTITIES OF CONSUMPTION OR ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS HAS FAR WIDER IMPLICATIONS THAN MANY POLITICIANS REALISE. IT GOES TO THE HEART OF WHAT IS DEMOCRACY AND IS A BLATANT VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS.
NOTE: This is a paper petition which combines the issues of fluoridation and recycled sewage for both to be the subjects of referendum. This is not the same as the E-Petition on LNP member Ray Steven's website http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/view/EPetitions_QLD/CurrentEPetition.aspx?PetNum=1141&lIndex=-1 which deals only with the 'recycled sewage to drinking water' issue. Neither is it the same as the Fluoridation petition on the www.qawf.org site, as this deals only with the issue of fluoridation. You may sign each 'different' petition, but not the same petition twice.
Please send letters to LNP party candidates and ask their position regarding fluoridation so you know who to vote for. The email link for contacts is: http://www.lnp.org.au/the-lnp-team/340.html Also send a copy to Cr Grant Pforr of the GC City Council, as Council is closely monitoring public sentiment on this issue.
PROFESSIONALS SPEAK OUT AGAINST FLUORIDE CONTAMINATION AND OVER-EXPOSURE:
Emeritus Professor Paul Connett, PhD says, "Water fluoridation is a peculiarly American phenomenon. It started at a time when Asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCBs filled our transformers and DDT was deemed so 'safe and effective' that officials felt no qualms spraying kids in school classrooms and seated at picnic tables. One by one all these chemicals have been banned, but fluoridation remains untouched." (www.fluoridealert.org) NEW 50 PAGE FLUORIDATION REPORT WITH LOADS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY REFERENCES! http://fluoridealert.org/connett.sha.2008.pdf
WHAT KIND OF FLUORIDATION CHEMICAL IS USED TO DOSE QUEENSLAND'S DRINKING WATER?
The Queensland Government originally intended to use Hexafluorosilicic Acid, but has more recently changed its position to using Sodium Silicofluoride (sometimes called Sodium Fluorosilicate). According to a Victorian manufacturer's material safety data sheet common uses for this chemical are for: "fluoridation of water, laundry compounds, enamels and glazes in pottery manufacture. Additive in metallurgy (aluminium and beryllium). Component of some insecticides, rodenticides and moth repellent. Used as preservative in glue, leather and wood; chemical intermediate." http://www.quantumchemicals.com.au/Environments/edoras/Resources/QuantumChemicals/MSDS/SodiumSilicofluoride_MSDS_Aug2006.pdf
The same material safety data sheet goes on to say that Sodium Fluorosilicate's toxicity is high and that it is a hazardous substance, and further, "CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS: The material is considered to be harmful by all exposure routes. Principal routes of exposure are by accidental skin and eye contact and inhalation of generated dusts. The material may accumulate in the human body and progressively cause tissue damage. Extended exposure to inorganic fluorides causes fluorosis, which includes signs of joint pain and stiffness, tooth discolouration, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhoea or constipation, weight loss, anaemia, weakness and general unwellness. There may also be frequent urination and thirst. Redness, itchiness and allergy-like inflammation of the skin and mouth cavity can occur. The central nervous system may be involved. Chronic inhalation exposure may result in nasal ulceration and/or perforation of nasal septum.
FLUORIDE IS NOT A NUTRIENT:
IT IS A CHEMICAL COMPOUND INDUSTRIAL WASTE PRODUCT OF THE PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER INDUSTRY, WHICH ALSO CONTAINS LEAD, ARSENIC, CADMIUM, MERCURY, POLONIUM AND RADIUM AMONGST OTHER CONTAMINANTS.

DOES FLUORIDATION REALLY REDUCE CARIES?
NO. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE. QUEENSLAND'S CARIES RATE FALLS WITHIN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AND IT HAS BEEN 95% FLUORIDE FREE!
Sourced from Table 12 of individual state reports 2004-06 National Survey of Adult Oral Health (The higher the DMFT - the more teeth affected by decay)
DMFT = Decayed. Missing and Filled Teeth due to decay
Overall Australian population DMFT = 12.8 (Slade et al 2007)
WASTE OF TAX PAYERS' MONEY
Only 1% of fluoridated water is consumed - the rest goes down the drain, making this a most costly waste of tax payers' money. This money could be better spent on educational programmes in schools to teach about good nutrition and dental hygiene - the biggest factors influencing dental health. Instead, the Queensland government is spending $30 million dollars to fluoridate Queensland. This is a convenient way to dispose of industrial toxic wastes- sodium silicofluorides - repackaged as 'fluoridation chemicals'. It costs chemical companies over US$7,000 per tonne to dispose of these wastes in approved toxic waste dumps because of how they have to be packaged and sealed for environmental and public safety.They can't be released to the air and they can't be released in the ocean. But it seems to be okay to filter them through your liver and kidneys via water. This is madness to say the least.
AFTER A GENERATION OF USE IN THE SOUTHERN STATES
FLUORIDE IS NOW RAMPANT THROUGHOUT THE FOOD SUPPLY
IN DRUGS AND DENTAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS:
We purchased from a Gold Coast supermarket a common brand of reconstituted apple juice and had it lab tested for fluoride. It was found to have .071ppm of fluoride concentration.
THE EPA (USA) HEADQUARTERS UNION OF SCIENTISTS SAYS
"Recent peer-reviewed toxicity data, when applied to EPA's standard method for controlling risks from toxic chemicals, require an immediate halt to the use of the nation's drinking water reservoirs as disposal sites for the toxic waste of the phosphate fertilizer industry\24."
"So, in addition to our concern over the toxicity of fluoride, we note the uncontrolled - and apparently uncontrollable - exposures to fluoride that are occurring nationwide via drinking water, processed foods, fluoride pesticide residues and dental care products. A recent report in the lay media\23, that, according to the Centers for Disease Control, at least 22 percent of America's children now have dental fluorosis, is just one indication of this uncontrolled, excess exposure. The finding of nearly 12 percent incidence of dental fluorosis among children in un-fluoridated Kingston New York\17 is another. For governmental and other organizations to continue to push for more exposure in the face of current levels of over-exposure coupled with an increasing crescendo of adverse toxicity findings is irrational and irresponsible at best."
Professor Sheldon, head of the prestigious UK York University fluoride review, said in a letter he wrote in 2004 to correct misrepresentations by ADA, AMA and other organisations, "The review did not show fluoridation to be safe;" and "The review found water fluoridation to be significantly associated with high levels of dental fluorosis which was not characterised as 'just a cosmetic issue';" and "There was little evidence to show that water fluoridation has reduced social inequalities in dental health."
EUROPE IS NOW MORE THAN 99% FLUORIDE-FREE
(the most recent city to stop fluoridating was the Swiss city of Basel); Medical doctor Hans C. Moolenburgh was involved in a Netherlands health study and gave these statements about adverse health effects of fluoridation in an affidavit in 1993 in a court case involving the city of Fond Du Lac:
"20. In a poison, a small dose will give complaints in the more sensitive persons. In the case of fluoride, research shows that to include about 5% of the population. With increasing doses more and more people will fall ill, and when the dose is high enough everyone will be ill, with perhaps the most sensitive persons already dead or dying.
21. This poison reaction to fluoride, rather than an allergic reaction, has also been show by the sudden increase of complaints in populations exposed to increased fluoridation, usually due to malfunctioning fluoridation equipment.
22. As a summary of our research, we are now convinced that fluoridation of the water supplies causes a low grade intoxication of the whole population, with only the approximately 5% most sensitive persons showing acute symptoms.
23. The whole population being subjected to low grade poisoning means that their immune systems are constantly overtaxed. With all the other poisonous influences in our environment, this can hasten health calamities.
24. It is in the light of this constant low grade poisoning that the substantial evidence of increased cancer death rate due to fluoridation needs to be considered and understood.
25. It is my considered scientific opinion, and I speak in the name of my colleagues who joined in this research, that the fluoridation of water supplies gives a significant immunosuppression of the whole population subject to it, and is one of the important precursors of the civilization illnesses that are rampant in modern industrialized society.
26. There are no artificially fluoridated water supplies today in the Netherlands.
27. It is my best scientific judgement, made with a high degree of scientific certainty, that fluoridated drinking water is very dangerous to the health of those who drink it."
NEBRASKA COMMUNITIES VOTED TO CEASE FLUORIDATION (4 NOVEMBER 2008) A number of communities, primarily in Nebraska, voted on Election Day to opt out of "water safety" programs and end community water fluoridation. (As Queenslanders look on longingly, wishing they still had the democratic rights to vote on the issue).
QUEBEC CITY COUNCIL Voted to Stop Fluoridation by April 2008
"In 1997, the EPA estimated that Americans were ingesting nearly five times more fluoride than in 1971 - from food and drinks alone." Smith G. 2001, Why Fluoride Is An Environmental Issue, Earth Island Institute.
"Fluoride is now everywhere. It is in the air we breathe and in the food and beverages we consume. It is impossible to eliminate our body’s systemic ingestion of fluoride.... If this stuff (fluoride) gets out into the air, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it's a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it's a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it's not a pollutant. That's amazing!" Dr. J. William Hirzy 2000 – Senior US EPA chemist, about fluoride; in an interview with Dr. Paul Connett PhD, Chemistry and Toxicology
“Fluoride is the most consumed drug in the U.S., and it’s time we talked about it.” Paul Connett, Chemistry Professor at St. Lawrence University, and Executive Director – Fluoride Action Network
“For individuals who are still heavily invested in the belief that swallowing fluoride is of any significant benefit, they need to understand the shift in scientific thinking, which now accepts that swallowing fluoride (systemic ingestion of fluoride) does not make teeth more resistant to tooth decay. One certainty that does not require a belief for or against fluoride. There is no deficiency in exposure and access to fluoride by any segment of the population. Quite the opposite. It is increasingly harder to avoid fluoride over-exposure and fluoride toxicity, even without a fluoride presence in our public drinking water. Fluoride accumulates in our bodies over a lifetime, as do arsenic and lead. All three are known toxins. All three pose significant health hazards. Why would we ever want to continue dumping these things (i.e. hydrofluorosilicic acid mix) into our clean, fresh drinking water?” www.WaterlooWatch.com
"I was the counsel for the plaintiffs in rigorous trials in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Texas, resulting in judicial findings in all three cases - based on the quality of the evidence heard on both sides - that artificial fluoridation of public water supplies induces large-scale cancer and other ailments in man. Eminent experts from great universities, government institutions, and the private sector appeared in all three cases, and were all subjected to direct and cross examination by veteran trial lawyers before experienced trial judges. The professional union at the national headquarters of the United States Environmental Protection Agency later reviewed these judicial findings, and certified them as scientifically correct to a subcommittee of the United States Senate. Since those hearings, the evidence reported in leading scientific and medical journals has extensively confirmed and elaborated what the three judges found. Under these circumstances, it is morally irresponsible to continue this practice, and governments have an urgent duty to end it." John Remington Graham, BA, LLB, co-author of "La fluoration autopsie d'une erreur scientifique," 2005, St-Agapit, Quebec
"For decades we have believed that fluoride in small doses has no adverse effects on health. But more and more scientists are now questioning the benefits of fluoride, even in small amounts."
UNICEF – A United Nations Organization
Just like lead, once fluoride enters our body it can stay there accumulating over a lifetime - and most especially if we are lacking essential minerals such as magnesium.
PLANS ON HOLD FOR DRINKING RECYCLED EFFLUENT
(but for how long?): Plans for drinking recycled (re-used) sewage water has received a temporary reprieve from the Bligh government - pending the election outcome. They have moved to a position of not implementing the measures unless the Wivenhoe dam water dips below 40% The pressure to change position has been in response to public pressure and the LNP taking it up as an election issue. However LNP have still included an 'exclusion clause' in their position and they would also implement drinking recycled sewage 'in an Armageddon situation'. Well what does that mean exactly? Why do they have to give themselves that loophole at all when over 90% of water is used by industry and power stations? If they gave all of the recycled sewage to industry and power stations they wouldn't even have enough to supply all their needs. It is not necessary to take such risks with people's health under any circumstances whatsoever.
WHAT ABOUT DRINKING RECYCLED SEWAGE?
As power stations and industry use over 90% of our water supply, all the recycled sewage water produced could not even supply all their water needs. How can we be saving water by drinking the stuff? There is no justification for drinking recycled sewage because of the substantial public health risks. Everything goes down the sewer from residential to hospital to industrial wastes. There will be radioactive chemotherapy drugs, abortion drugs, oestrogen hormones, paint solvents and blood products all coming together in the sewage treatment works. The CSIRO had referred to the thousands of known and unknown chemicals in sewage as a 'witches brew'. Not all can be removed by the technology. They don't even have tests for most of them. Other countries don't drink their sewage (re-used water). 99% of Singapore's recycled sewage goes directly to industry and is prohibited for drinking by Singaporeans. The Queensland water grid is a world first - a completely closed loop toilet-to-tap system. Why should we be the guinea pigs in this large unconscionable human population experiment? According to a CSIRO document Toowoomba was going to be a 'Living Laboratory'.
CYANIDE TO BE RECYCLED FOR DRINKING WATER IN QUEENSLAND Greg Roberts | November 11, 2008 Article from: The Australian
A WIDE range of industrial contaminants including cyanide, pesticides, grease and fertilisers can be included in waste that will be recycled as drinking water for the 2.6 million residents of southeast Queensland. READ MORE...
See what Professor Collignon had to say in this 30 October Australian newspaper article titled, Flush Then Drink in the Sunshine State. "Nobody in the world has done what southeast Queensland is about to do," says the eminent microbiologist and Australian National University professor of clinical medicine. "What is about to happen is the reversal of 150 years of public health policy in Australia because sewage will be put into the drinking water of more than two million people. Everywhere else in the world, the emphasis is on keeping sewage out of drinking water. We should be concerned about what Queensland is doing, especially as it is being looked at by the rest of the country as a solution to water supply problems."
GOLD COAST SEWAGE TREATMENT WORKS ENGINEER SPEAKS OUT AGAINST DRINKING SEWAGE WATER: "I was also part of the engineering team with Civil engineers - Camp Scott Furphy, who were engaged to document a report titled; ‘Gold Coast Sewerage Disposal Study 1976’. The results of that report included a note that without any reservation, recycled sewage should never be used for drinking purposes, even allowing for advances in purification technology." AND "The vision of drinking recycled sewage is not a vision worth pursuing. Queensland is such a young state. Australia is the 5th most watered country in the world per head of population. It is just that most of the water is not where the population resides. Yet there is an abundance of water infrastructure projects that
could be undertaken by a government with vision."
