Secret Fluoridation Review Totally One-Sided Admits Chair

Secret Fluoridation Review Totally One-Sided Admits Chair

15 August 2014

The secret ‘review’ of water fluoridation will only look at research that supports fluoridationists’ belief in ‘the safety and efficacy of fluoride in water’, says Sir Peter Gluckman, co-chair of this thereby-admitted ‘kangaroo review’.

It is no wonder that scientific studies showing water fluoridation is neither safe nor effective have not been sought for this bogus ‘review’.

Even the Ministry of Health admits there is robust scientific research against the claimed safety and effectiveness of fluoridation. But only under the Official Information Act. Publicly it denies this admission. Who could possibly trust these people?

The US National Research Council Review, published in 2006, raised major concerns about toxic health effects of fluoride at levels in NZ drinking water. The NZ Ministry of Health ignores this finding. Only recently, another scientific study showed fluoride reduces IQ, adding to the prestigious Harvard meta-analysis of international studies.

In the US a recent press release stated "A series of disclosures are surfacing about the actions of water fluoridation promoters that point to a likely tsunami of Fluoridegate investigations, hearings, and explosive courtroom entanglements.”

Tennessee state legislator Frank Niceley states, "There is a real Fluoridegate scandal here. Citizens haven't been told about harm from fluorides”

Washington D.C. toxic tort attorney Chris Nidel says, "I think when we look back we'll ask why Fluoridegate didn't surface earlier. There are serious concerns about possible conflict of interest and heavy editing of information being fed to the public about fluoride risks and impacts."

Does this sound warning bells about this ‘kangaroo review’ by Gluckman and the Royal Society – sure does! Against this background, this secret ‘review’ is extremely alarming – a ‘review’ by committed fluoridationists who deny the published science that fluoridation is not just ineffective, it is a serious health risk. The NZ public deserves better. The NZ public must demand better. Unless we are no more than sheep.

Fluoridation is a crime against humanity. Those who seek to force it on the population need to be held criminally liable. This is especially true of those, like Gluckman, who abuse the trust that the public place in them, believing them to be objective scientists, when they are no more than fanatics pursuing a quasi-religious crusade on this issue.
