Fluoride query: Clean-water campaigner Erin Brockovich.

Erin Brockovich, the internationally renowned clean-water campaigner who is visiting Australia to talk about water contamination, has urged her Facebook followers to question water fluoridation.

In several posts, the most recent of which was added on Thursday morning, Ms Brockovich posted anti-fluoride material and urged her followers to read research claiming that fluoride is dangerous.

“Do your own reading,” she urged when posting a link to research claiming that fluoride accumulates in the human pineal gland to very high levels.

Australia’s top fluoride expert, Professor Wendell Evans, disputes claims that fluoride damages this gland, while Australian and American health authorities and governments say there is no proof that fluoride is dangerous.

Ms Brockovich came to fame when Julia Roberts played her in the movie Erin Brockovich in 2000. Roberts won an Academy Award for the role.

The film dramatised the single mother’s investigation into Pacific Gas & Electric in Hinkley, California, which revealed the company had poisoned the town’s water for more than 30 years by leaking toxic chromium 6 into the groundwater. It resulted in a massive settlement for the people of that town.

Since then, Ms Brockovich has been a campaigner for a range of issues, including oil spills and compensation for women who claim to have been suffered side-effects caused by depo-provera birth-control injections.

In Australia, she appeared as an ambassador for Shine Lawyers at a meeting in Oakey, Queensland, to talk about water contamination.

On Thursday morning, Ms Brockovich posted a new update detailing “why the United States’ Environmental protection Agency (EPA) Headquarters’ Union of Scientists Opposes Fluoridation”.The post says that most of its members had thought that fluoride’s only effects were beneficial – such as reductions in tooth decay – until recently.

Ms Brockovich’s posts have been seized upon by the Fluoride Action Network Australia, which has reposted and shared Ms Brockovich’s comments to its own members.

Her comments coincided with a renewed campaign by local anti-fluoride activists ahead of a forum on the topic by US anti-fluoride activist Paul Connett at the University of Technology, Sydney, on February 21.

Dr Connett argues that fluoridation’s role in the decline of tooth decay is in doubt, even saying that where fluoridation of the water had been stopped, tooth decay had decreased – an assertion disputed by all public health associations.

Leading health and dental experts have refused to attend the forum, claiming the panel is stacked with those opposed to fluoride and biased.

In Sydney, Ms Brockovich recently told lawyers: “What will be our legacy? Our lasting legacy will be our fight for cleaner water, good land and respect for society.”

Ms Brockovich was not available for comment on Thursday.

When asked whether there were any doubts about the efficacy of fluoride, NSW Health said the “overwhelming weight of scientific evidence does not link water fluoridation at optimal levels to any short- or long-term health-related problems, or any environmental impacts”.

The NSW government supports the fluoridation of drinking water as an effective, efficient, socially equitable and safe approach to the prevention of tooth decay.

Fluoridation of water is endorsed and supported by the World Health Organisation and the National Health and Medical Research Council as well as leading clinical organisations in Australia, including the Australian Medical Association and the Australian Dental Association.

Studies conducted in Australia also support the efficacy of fluoridation. For example, a recent study in Queensland found significantly higher decay rates in non-fluoridated areas compared with the only long-standing fluoridated community, Townsville.

    The good ol flu-oride, just another way these clowns at the top trying to numb us, dumb us down.
    Here is something else worth thinking about and looking into.
    The link between fluoride and Aluminum. Why Aluminum?? Well there have been numerous tests taken, (3 by myself), which show Aluminum in the rain samples.
    If its in the rain, its in the air, if its in the air, YOU are INHALING it, without even realizing.
    Think of this….
    “…FLUORIDE allows ALUMINUM to cross the blood-brain barrier, resulting in twice the accumulation of aluminum in the rats’ brains than those of rats given non-fluoridated water and this accumulation of aluminum resulted in dramatic brain cell degeneration.”
    http://draxe.com/aluminum-dont-sweat-it-2/
    Those already dumbed down by fluoride, who think its safe, take a look around you at your family and friends then start opening your blind eyes and looking for the truth behind fluoride.
    Just straight of the bat, 2 Doctors well worth following on toxicity of Aluminum, Fluoride and other DELIBERATE nasties out there, such as vaccines, take the time to listen to what they say. Plenty of info from both Doctors on the net.
    Dr RUSSELL BLAYLOCK, a neurosurgeon and Dr PAUL CONNETT,who had a Ph.D in Chemistry with 23 years of teaching chemistry and toxicology.
    Quite some time ago, whilst i was living in Brisbane, i had a letter published in a local paper. Below you will find it.

    The Great Hoax -FLUORIDE IS A WASTE!!
    Back in 2008 Anna Bligh introduced fluoride into the Queensland Water supply.
    Quoted from ABC News, she said that her proudest moment was setting a timetable that will have 90% of Queenslands water fluoridated by 2012. Then she goes on to say, “…. its controversial out there, but i think its something that will leave a very long legacy of better dental health for our children.”
    I rang Queensland Water a month or so ago, to learn, yes we are fluoridated and by 2013 the whole of Queensland will be.
    How can anyone be proud of introducing such a deadly chemical into anyone’s water, let alone a whole state? She says it will leave a legacy of better health and teeth??? Too right it will, all for the wrong reasons. This fluoride is a mining industry waste. The whole thing about “good for your teeth” is an absolute joke.
    Doing a little study i have found some eerie facts bout fluoride.
    One thing i did find which raised suspicions was to do with The Mellon Institute. They were a leading defender of the asbestos industry, which is facing huge tidal waves of law suits around the world. What has The Mellon Institute got too do with fluoride i hear you ask, well…. they were the first to suggest that fluoride be introduced into water supplies.
    Then there was Dr Harold Hodge, who in the 1950,s was a chief toxicologist at The Manhattan Project. The Manhattan Project was the first to produce the atomic bomb. Massive amounts of fluoride were needed to produce nuclear weapons.
    Harold Hodge was also responsible for injecting plutonium into people in the mid 1940`s.
    If Hodge had come out and said that fluoride was not safe, this would have opened the doors for mass litigation against the US Army and maybe, the end of producing nuclear weapons. And in May 1946 they found a way to pull the wool over the eyes of the public by saying it was useful in tooth health.
    In the same time another doctor had bought it to the attention, warning about the poisoning with fluoride, just as he did with smoking but was smeared, pushed aside by the health officials.
    Another doctor, Dr Phyllis Mullenix did a experimental study to measure fluorides mental effects on rats, a study that had previously been halted by the Atomic Energy Commission. At first she did not think, that fluoride was poison as it had been around for a long time but continued to do the experiments.
    She found that is had effects which resembled ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and hyperactivity disorders. She also said, “Whether they were prenatal or early postnatal, all they needed was two or three days exposure to this and it caused a permanent change in behavior when the animals grew up.”
    This also reducing the IQ of children.
    Her study was accepted for publication but days later, she was fired from Forsyth Dental Care.
    The real reason behind water fluoridation is NOT to benefit children’s teeth. If this was the real reason, there are many ways in which it could be done, that are much easier, cheaper and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination, control and loss of liberty over time.
    Back in the Hitler days a German chemist worked out an ingenious and far reaching plan, the idea of mass medication of water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas and produce sterility in women which would also cut down population.
    It was said back in 1954 by C.E.Perkins, a chemist, “Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individuals power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him.”
    This topic i could go on and on as there is so much information out there but still, these so called experts, continue to mass poison us. It does not matter how small the amount is, your body does not eliminate this from your system, it slowly accumulates and would you believe, it even weakens your bones, it nails you thyroid, it nails a big part of your brain, being the pineal gland, it shortens our life, it promotes various cancers and mental disturbances, it makes us stupid, docile.
    Only just last week i spent time in hospital for surgery, you cant help but feel for some of the people in there. One bloke from Deagon, nice old bloke has never been sick in all his life and here he was around the age of 70 being told he may have a tumour in the bladder or maybe the prostate. Sad thing was to see his daughters there with him, to see them crying as they got the news. It is horrible to see and when you see, how much money is being spent on hospitals, around Brisbane, around Queensland and probably all of Australia, isn’t it about time some common sense was seen…… spend money on preventing sickness, not spend money on more and larger hospitals.
    Surely these politicians think of their own families, even have family members in hospital with cancers or what ever else.
    Its so simple, REMOVE the fluoride, a very simple step to help people stay well. Just look at Western Europe, 98% of that area has REJECTED water fluoridation and yet, children’s teeth are just as healthy as children’s teeth in USA. It is a massive con. I may be wrong in saying this, but i did read that fluoride was sourced from another country, that country being China, isn’t it odd that China don’t fluoridate there water?

  4. I have asked many forced-fluoridation fanatics to tell me how much accumulated fluoride in the body they think is safe. So far not a single one of them has been able to answer the question.
