3 out 4 Logan Residents Oppose Water Fluoridation

20130707-221457.jpgThe public is no longer sold on the myth that water fluoridation benefits our health.

By General Maddox.
In the Friday July 5th issue of the Logan Reporter, a community newspaper in Logan City south of the Queensland capital, page 12 revealed a rather interesting truth. It appears the public is waking up to the fact that toxic waste is being added to their water supply in addition to the realisation that our right to choose whether we want it in there or not has been taken away.

3 out 4 ain’t bad. After all there are still so many people blindly going along with the government propaganda and corporate run media mouth pieces who continue to shove pro-fluoridation messages down our throats washed down with a glass of fluoridated tap water.

The question posed to the 4 members of the public was do you think we should have fluoridated water? The answers pictured are:
1) Debbie Stefancic – We’re on tank water so it doesn’t affect us.
2) Shirley Schofield – No, I don’t think it has any benefit.
3) Judy O’toole – No, to me it’s poisonous. It’s a by-product.
4) Alan O’toole – No, I’m not keen on those additives. It should be a choice.

At first I was shocked this was actually printed. I thought perhaps the editor was away that week? Or that someone amongst the anti-fluoride action groups had infiltrated the ranks of the Logan Reporter? This type of message rarely breaks through the iron curtain of pro-fluoride power brokers like the corporate controlled media.

But then I noticed the very clever albeit not very subtle ad placement directly below the negative fluoride commenters. Did you see it?

I guarantee you this was not done by accident. This type of subconscious message is designed to make the reader believe that our switched on members of the public commenting above will need dentures due to their stance on water fluoridation.

Have you ever picked up a local newspaper like this one? They’re 65% ads, 10% real estate listings and 25% news articles. That ad space was most likely sold to them with the promise it would go on the same page as this Q&A result.

Perception management such as this lurks everywhere and the big boys at the top know no bounds when it comes to making a buck at your expense. Make sure you take note of this sort of trickery the next time you see something about pro or anti fluoridation in the media.

    The fluoridation fraud is well and truly exposed now. The Establishment is in a panic. We have some rebuttals of typical pro-fluoridation propaganda here. Hope you find them useful: http://afamildura.wordpress.com/tag/rebuttals/

    Astute assessment, General. A few weeks ago our other local rag, the Albert & Logan News, ran a piece titled “Majority back move to keep fluoridation” (no ads adjoining this one).

    Unfortunately the SEQ water grid makes it almost impossible for councils in the area to get rid of fluoride unless all others (or at least the bigger ones) do the same. After the law was changed to make fluoridation no longer mandatory, Brisbane’s Lord mayor quickly took it on himself to state that Brisbane would be keeping it. The Ipswich Mayor was going to consult with the community, though saying he thought fluoride was a good thing – but immediately after Brisbane’s decision he said Ipswich now had no choice but to keep it. The Gold Coast Mayor also pushed hard to keep it – though making a bit of a pretence of community consultation. So although the Mayor of Logan is against fluoridation, Logan has basically been forced to follow suit. We get all our water from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast, and the cost of removing fluoride before it gets to residents is more than the council could afford.

    Apart from all the known health effects from water pollution/fluoridation and the fact it’s also a disgraceful fraud and failure – anyone else noticed the surge in violence and crime? Australia wide is plagued with violence and crime, is it any wonder, when there are potent neurotoxins in our water and hence in everything we eat, drink and bathe in. Absolutely insanity, and the Mayor of Logan and many other Mayors have been sent time and time again, extensive evidence of harm and the failure of water fluoridation/pollution. It has to be banned for all time.

    I have compiled some information on violence and criminality from silicofluorides (think also enhancement of the uptake of lead as per work of Professor Roger Masters) – Australia wide has a serious problem with widespread violence and criminality – I hope many more people are able to open their minds and get past the propaganda by The Fluoridation Cartel Web of Deception and see the true harm and failure of this hazardous waste known as water fluoridation:-

    I have named these ‘Fluoride Ferals’

    This violence and criminality is now a constant:-

    Violence in Schools
    Schools across the country have become dangerous places with teachers painting a terrifying picture of classroom violence – and the culprits are getting younger

    For example Sydney ‘fluoridated’ since 1968 – NSW now has a saturation rate across the entire State of 96% of these potent neurotoxins known as water fluoridation -this is obscene http://www.abc.net.au/news/topic/macquarie-fields-2564 The remainder of Australia heavily fluoridated also.

    Get used to this violence and criminality until you take the potent neurotoxins hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides & co contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc., (and added aluminium sulphate also) KNOWN AS WATER FLUORIDATION – this of course also contaminates our entire food chain – NEUROTOXINS should be banned from our drinking water (& hence food chain) NOT ADDED BY A GOVERNMENT !!! Violence & criminality and silicofluorides (water fluoridation) http://fluorideinformationaustralia.wordpress.com/violencecriminality/silicofluorides-water-fluoridation-chemicals/ Alzheimer’s Disease EPIDEMIC fluoride – aluminium Wake up and end WATER FLUORIDATION/POLLUTION AS A MATTER OF EXTREME URGENCY AND END IT FOR ALL TIME !!!!!

    Do not continue to ignore the link with Silicofluorides and violence and criminality.

    If water fluoridation were ended, it might take a generation for the effects to recede.   If it continues to expand, the “signal” identified in this study may get lost in the “noise” of endemic violence.

    In addition to all else, also of great concern to me is the fact that the effects of these hazardous waste pollutants fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides on our aboriginal people appear to be even worse  – I have a lot of information in my report hereunder – also particularly see    http://fluorideinformationaustralia.wordpress.com/violencecriminality/silicofluorides-water-fluoridation-chemicals/

    ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE – Epidemic – Fluoride/Aluminium – By Doug Cross
    In addition to the fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides (hazardous waste pollutants and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc., known as ‘fluoride’) they also add aluminium sulphate
    Australia already faces Alzheimer’s Disease (& Kidney disease) epidemics – STOP ‘WATER POLLUTION/FLUORIDATION’ immediately permanently & irrevocably for all time or face the ruin.

    Dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is fast becoming the greatest public health issue, ever. In the UK the Alzheimer’s Society recently stated that one in three persons over the age of 65 will die from AD – and it’s increasing so fast that in thirty years time the prevalence is expected to treble (do the maths and shiver!). Your children will live with fluorosis, but they will die with dementia.

    Since the evidence that environmental exposure to ionic aluminium salts, such as the aluminium sulphate used in water treatment, is a leading cause of AD. There is a 50% and 150% increase in AD in areas where the water contains only half the permitted maximum of 0.2ppm. Fluoride in water – increases the speed at which it is absorbed and transferred to the brain. Adding Fluoride To Drinking Water Is Literally Insane. Fluoridation is bad on its own, but in the presence of aluminium its effects are becoming catastrophic as our ‘aluminium clocks’ tick away the countdown to Alzheimer’s – fluoride speeds up that lethal clock..

    Brief Extract:
    One of the best-known chemical alterations produced by fluorides is a reduction in cholinesterases, including acetylcholinesterase. Fluorides also directly affect the actions of many of other important neurotransmitters in the brain. Fluorides seem to have a special attraction to acetylcholine. Nerve cells that synthesize this transmitter have numerous projections to many forebrain areas, including the neocortex and deeper areas of the brain that provide information to the neocortex. Not only do fluorides change the amount of the acetylcholine in the 7 brain, they selectively block certain receptors that respond to this transmitter. Fluoride reduces the number of one type of “nicotinic receptors” for acetylcholine. Some other nicotinic subtypes are not affected.10 Added to all of the other alterations in structure and function of the brain caused by fluorides, the opportunity for mental and behavioural changes are almost limitless. While the cholinergic system of the brain has been most studied in regard to the effects of fluoride, it is not the only neural transmitter affected. It is likely that all neural transmitter systems are affected by fluoride intake, directly or indirectly. Other anomalies related to fluoride intake are found in many other chemical systems of the brain.

    There is no known benefit of adding any form of fluoride to our drinking water. Who would want to increase chances of having a less than perfect child? Who would wish to take a chance on a possible reduction of their own mental capacity? Who would want to have their personality altered by fluoride induced alterations in their brain chemistry? Who would want to increase their odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease? Eliminating the addition of fluoride to our drinking water would remove these possibilities. The cost of doing this is zero. In fact it would enrich the communities now adding fluorides to their drinking water. Robert L. Isaacson Department of Psychology and

    “Fluorides also increase the production of free radicals in the brain through several different biological pathways. These changes have a bearing on the possibility that fluorides act to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.” http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11571&page=222
