Fluoride Free New Zealand Statement

Industry Waste Exec Demands Increase of Toxic Fluoride Disposal, Via Nationwide Fluoride in Drinking Water

John Pfahlert, Water New Zealand's CEO, has made repeated calls to roll out nationwide mandatory fluoridation, over-riding communities that have already rejected the outdated practice, or have remained happily free from fluoridation. Water New Zealand is an industry lobby group, formed from the now dissolved New Zealand Sewage and Industrial Wastes Association, so it comes as no surprise that this group would lobby for an increase in the disposal of Industrial Grade fluoride chemicals into the public water supply.

The Industrial Grade Fluoride most widely used in fluoridation is Hydrofluorosilicic Acid. HFA is the liquid by-product from the collection of two toxic gases, Hydrogen Fluoride and Silicon Tetra-Fluoride. It contains contaminants of heavy metals such as arsenic, lead and sometimes, uranium.

The president of Water New Zealand is also the Group Manager for Engineering Services at South Taranaki District Council. This Council has been embroiled in a legal battle costing hundreds of thousands of dollars since they were taken to court after trying to force fluoridation on Patea and Waverley residents who had said they did not want it.

Fluoride itself is now categorised as a neurotoxin, as published in The Lancet, last year. Kent University’s Thyroid Study this year, showed water fluoridation increased hypothyroidism in women by 60% in fluoridated communities.

This waste management, spin doctor, and industry front man is now making the mistake of publicly outing one of the real reasons behind water fluoridation: industry waste disposal
