There are so many myths and assumptions surrounding putting fluoride in water that in a heavily fluoridated country like New Zealand, many people go into a state of incredulous disbelief if they are told that our water supply is being poisoned.
While the issue of whether fluoride reduces dental decay is often debated when discussing this topic (it doesn’t – in fact it actually slightly increases tooth decay – for studies see this article), this is a just a distraction from the real issues – fluoride is put in the water to create a profitable way to dispose of a lethal industrial by-product, and to make the population more submissive
The only reason it remains in the water supplies of a handful of American influenced countries (less than 4% of the population globally) is because the officials who have been pushing this mass medication program don’t want to admit it has been thoroughly discredited.
It’s a difficult subject for many people to look into with an open mind, because if fluoride really is toxic, they would have to then question many of their other assumptions about the society we live in. “It must be good for us, otherwise ‘they’ wouldn’t put it in the water..”

Which countries poison their citizens with Fluoride?
After decades of pro-fluoride propaganda in the New Zealand media, there are a lot of people here who think that fluoridation is widespread. But outside of America, the practice is rare, and in sharp decline.
· Approximately 4% of the world’s population are still being poisoned with a fluoridated water supply.
· There are more people drinking fluoridated water in the USA than the rest of the world combined.
· There is no difference in tooth decay between western nations that fluoridate their water and those that do not.
24 countries are poisoning their citizens with water fluoridation, but most of these countries have a low percentage of their population consuming fluoridated water:
Peru – 2%
Serbia – 3%
Vietnam – 4%
Papua New Guinea – 6%
South Korea – 6%
Spain – 11%
United Kingdom – 11%
Guatemala – 13%
Panama – 15%
Argentina – 19%
Libya – 21%
Fiji – 36%
Brazil – 41%
Canada – 45% *
New Zealand – 58%
Guyana – 62%
USA – 64%
Chile – 70%
Southern Ireland – 73%
Malaysia – 75%
Australia – 75% **
Brunei – 95%
Hong Kong – 100%
Singapore – 100%
* Canada is rapidly lowering as towns are discontinuing fluoridation
** Australia has a lower percentage now, because many towns and cities there have stopped fluoridating.
Admittedly there are many countries who don’t even have water supplies, but out of the ones that do, Australia, Southern Ireland, America, and gullible little New Zealand are in a very small minority, along with very few other countries.
And just to show that the other 96% are not all lacking water supplies, countries that have rejected fluoridation include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland – all wealthy countries with well educated citizens, and far high standards of health than America or NZ.
For explanations of why these countries do not fluoridate, see these government statements
The European Court of Justice ruled in 2009 that fluoridated water must be treated as a medicine, and cannot be used to prepare foods, so Europe could technically block foods imported from Australia, NZ, USA and Ireland at any time.
There Are Multiple Toxins Added To NZ Tap Water
Tap water in NZ is toxic because it contains fluoride, chlorine, aluminium (alum), and in some cases (where there are old water pipes) asbestos as well
It’s not just drinking the tap water that’s a problem – bathing and showering in it leads to fluoride and chlorine absorption too.
A good household carbon filter will take out chlorine, asbestos, and aluminium, but it will not take out fluoride. This can be done, but it requires a much more expensive filtration system (around NZ$2000-4000) to sort out your water for bathing and showering.
Reverse osmosis filters and distillers will get most of the fluoride out for drinking, but they remove the good minerals too, and this may cause other problems.
If you are unable to obtain water free from a good source, and have to buy bottled water, keep in mind that some bottled water is just tap water that’s been filtered to get rid of the chlorine taste, while some bottled spring water is good quality.
In Wellington, clean drinking water is freely available directly from the Petone Aquifer
And from the Dowse Art Museum taps in Lower Hutt

Faces of the NZ fluoridationists
Here are some of the most vocal fluoridationists in NZ who want to mass medicate us.
Two known side effects of ingesting fluoride are hypothyroidism (which shows up most visibly as a puffy and enlarged neck), and a tendency towards emotional instability, such as excessive anger.
(both are worth taking into account when viewing the appearance and behavior of these fluoridationists)
Judith Collins – NZ National party politician – nicknamed “Crusher Collins”, and described on Wikipedia as a “ball-breaker” who smashes her way through everyone she comes up against.
Sir Peter Gluckman – Chief Science Advisor to NZ Prime Minister John Key – he refuses to publicly debate fluoridation and claims “the science of fluoride in water is effectively settled”
Sean Plunket – broadcaster, columnist and writer – calls anyone who disagrees with his opinions a “nutter”
Marcus Lush – television and radio presenter – refuses to even discuss fluoridation, because “not fluoridating would be like infanticide”
Kevin Snee – Hawkes Bay District Health board Chairman – wants to live in a world “without the carry-on and nonsense of the anti-fluoride brigade”
Nearly $16 million has been shaved off this year’s Hawke’s Bay District Health Board health budget in 2013, by board executive Kevin Snee, who is himself paid $460 000 each year.
Mr Snee was peviously the chief executive of the National health Service in Devon, England until 2009. When he resigned, 77% of of employees reported poor communication between senior management and staff.
“Hawke’s Bay District Health Board chief executive Dr Kevin Snee is making no apologies after stomping, forcefully removing and attempting to smash anti-fluoride protest signs at a public meeting yesterday.
Before the board organised public meeting began in Havelock North at 2pm, a Hawke’s Bay Today reporter witnessed Dr Snee removing anti-fluoride signs displayed outside the Havelock North Community Centre, where the meeting was scheduled to take place.
He tossed the stakes around the lawn before attempting to bend and break the placards over his knee and then stomping on them.
Fluoride Action Network New Zealand member Mary Byrne confronted Dr Snee as he was removing the placards but he walked inside the community building smiling and waving.
“He just came and started standing on them,” she said, picking up the signs. “He has no right to go and vandalise them.
“How would he like it if we did that to his ones? If you do that sort of stuff to an election sign it’s considered vandalism – now he’s come out there and wrecked our signs.”
When asked by Hawke’s Bay Today why he removed the signs in such a forceful manner, Dr Snee replied: “It’s hard to take things out of the ground without being forceful.
“They had no right to be there in the first place,” he added.
“This is our meeting – I was just getting them out of the way.”
Fluoride Free Hastings spokesperson Angelina Hair was visibly shocked by Dr Snee’s actions and said she hoped people had witnessed the incident.
Dr Snee said he simply wanted to conduct the meeting “without the carry-on and nonsense of the anti-fluoride brigade”.
Following the meeting he approached Hawke’s Bay Today and questioned the reporter on what would be reported.
Later he phoned the paper and said he would make no apologies for his actions on an issue he felt “passionate” about. He said he was trying to fold the signs into a pile.
Fluoridated Toothpaste – Toxic and bad for teeth too
Most toothpastes contain fluoride, supposedly to prevent tooth decay. Sadly, the majority of consumers fall for this con and poison themselves even further by applying it to their teeth.
The fluoride in toothpaste is not an organic trace mineral found in the ground. It’s an industrial waste chemical that has been deceivingly and incorrectly called “fluoride”. It is inorganic, very toxic, and more poisonous than lead.
Any amount of fluoride in water exceeding 2 ppm (parts per million) would be considered unsafe. But fluoridated toothpastes have been found to contain levels of up to 7000 ppm. Even the U.S. FDA now regards fluoride in toothpaste as a potential toxic drug.
One of the most common symptoms of excess fluoride is “dental fluorosis”. You will see chalky white patches on the teeth making teeth “spotty”. Enamels can also become more porous with use of fluoridated toothpaste leading to discoloration of the teeth and pitting of the enamel.
Young children tend to apply lots toothpaste to their toothbrush, and then swallow plenty of it. (Swallowing half a tube of fluoride toothpaste in one go can be fatal)
Fluoride in the mouth is absorbed through our mucous lining and accumulates in our bodies just like fluoride that has been swallowed. The accumulated fluoride is carcinogenic and harmful to our metabolic systems. It leads to increased hip fractures, osteoporosis, arthritis and lowered brain function.
Another harmful ingredient in toothpaste is sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) – a foam building substance known to be cancer causing.
And in addition, virtually all toothpastes contain glycerine. Glycerine coats the teeth, so that they can’t remineralise to heal tooth decay
The basic requirements for remineralising teeth are:
* A nutrient dense, whole food, Weston A Price type diet, including:
o Bone broths & marrow
o Cod liver oil
o Butter oil, or lots of good butter
o Good quality animal foods
o Fermented foods
* Fluoride free water
* A fluoride free, glycerine free tooth cleaner
Fluoride Stupidity & Population Control
Sodium fluoride, a hazardous-waste by-product from the manufacture of aluminum, is a common ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, anesthetics, hypnotics, psychiatric drugs, and military nerve gas. It’s historically been quite expensive to properly dispose of, until some aluminum industries with an overabundance of the stuff sold the public on the insane but highly profitable idea of selling it at a 20,000% markup, injecting it into our water supplies, and then forcing the public to DRINK it.
Fluoride is injected into our drinking water supply at approx. 1 part-per-million (ppm), but since we only drink 0.5% of the total water supply, the remaining 99.5% literally goes down the drain as a free hazardous-waste disposal for the chemical industry
Independent scientific evidence repeatedly showing up over the past 50 years reveals that fluoride shortens our life span, promotes cancer and various mental disturbances, accelerates osteoporosis and broken hips in old folks, and makes us stupid, docile, and subservient.
There are reports of aluminum in the brain being a causative factor in Alzheimer’s Disease, and evidence points towards fluoride’s strong affinity for aluminum and also its ability to “trick” the blood-brain barrier by looking like the hydrogen ion, and thus allowing chemical access to brain tissue.
Tap water – it can lower IQ and cause cancer
by Paul Joseph Watson
The establishment media will have to find a new tactic with which to ridicule those who oppose the fluoridation of water after a major new Scientific American report concluded that “Scientific attitudes toward fluoridation may be starting to shift” as new evidence emerges of the poison’s link to disorders affecting teeth, bones, the brain and the thyroid gland, as well as lowering IQ.
“Today almost 60 percent of the U.S. population drinks fluoridated water, including residents of 46 of the nation’s 50 largest cities,” reports Scientific American’s Dan Fagin.
“Outside the U.S., fluoridation has spread to Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and a few other countries. In other nations, however, water fluoridation is rare and controversial”
Serious scientific research has uncovered proof that all the horror stories about sodium fluoride told down the decades are essentially true.
The Scientific American study “Concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid — the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism.”
The report also notes that “a series of epidemiological studies in China have associated high fluoride exposures with lower IQ.”
“Epidemiological studies and tests on lab animals suggest that high fluoride exposure increases the risk of bone fracture, especially in vulnerable populations such as the elderly and diabetics,” writes Fagin.
The study adds to a growing literature of shocking scientific studies proving fluoride’s link with all manner of health defects, even as governments in the west, including recently the UK, make plans to mass medicate the population against their will with this deadly toxin.
In 2005, a study conducted at the Harvard School of Dental Health found that fluoride in tap water directly contributes to causing bone cancer in young boys.
“New American research suggests that boys exposed to fluoride between the ages of five and 10 will suffer an increased rate of osteosarcoma – bone cancer – between the ages of 10 and 19,” according to a London Observer article about the study.
An August 2006 a Chinese study found that fluoride in drinking water damages children’s liver and kidney functions.
A few extra facts about fluoride
– Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.
– Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).
– 97% of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water due to the known health risks, however 10% of Britons drink it and the UK government is trying to fast track the fluoridation of the entire country’s water supply.
– In Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg fluoridation of water was rejected because it was classified as compulsive medication against the subject’s will and therefore violated fundamental human rights.
– In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) advised that parents should avoid giving babies fluoridated water.
– Other sources of fluoride include: fluoride dental products, fluoride pesticides, fluoridated pharmaceuticals, processed foods made with fluoridated water, and tea.
Just because you’re not drinking it, doesn’t mean you’re not still soaking it in through your skin….
Many people have some level of awareness about the need to purify their drinking water. Strangely though, most people don’t hesitate to shower in the same tap water they refuse to drink. Most are surprised to learn that waterborne chemicals, including fluorides, are readily absorbed into the body from showering or bathing. In fact, these chemicals are actually more dangerous when absorbed through the skin, where they enter the bloodstream more easily, bypassing the gut where they would bind with minerals from food, thus diminishing their harmful effects.
A growing awareness about water pollution is prompting an increasing number of peoples to buy bottled water (which may be as contaminated as tap water) or invest in water filtration units. Many use activated charcoal, sediment filters, water softeners or ceramic filters. But none of these methods will remove fluoride.
Fluoridation doesn’t work
The purported evidence that taking it internally helps teeth is weak. Since any benefits of fluoride would only be topical, and the risks are systemic, it would be safer to apply the fluoride directly to the teeth, for those that want it.
It damages dental, physical and mental health
There is a lot of evidence that ingesting fluoride is actually harmful to teeth. It’s also harmful to other bone tissue, and is a causative factor in osteoporosis, especially hip fractures. It’s implicated in many other diseases including cancer, diabetes and chronic fatigue. It impacts on mental and emotional health, causing lowered IQ, depression and inability to concentrate.
Many countries have banned fluoride from their water supplies because they know it’s dangerous. NZ is one of only 4 western countries who fluoridate. Despite the US being one of the 4, even the American Dental Association has recommended that baby formula is made up with non fluoridated water, thus admitting the risks involved.
Looking at tooth decay levels in non-fluoridated vs fluoridated countries, it’s clear that levels of tooth decay have reduced across both groups. There is little difference between the two groups.
Even if it was effective and safe, it’s unethical to mass medicate the population
It’s a basic human right to be able to choose what we put into our bodies. This right has been taken away from us.
The other drawback of mass medication is that the dosage can’t be controlled or individualised. A person who drinks a lot gets a far higher dosage than someone who drinks little.
Only 0.5% of the fluoridated water is ingested. The other 99.5% is used for washing or other uses, and literally goes straight down the drain. So even if fluoride was beneficial, this would be an expensive, wasteful way to use it.
As it’s actually a dangerous poison, a huge amount of it is going into the sewage system where it goes on to contaminate the environment.

Fluoride – Drinking Ourselves To Death – Barry Groves
Fluoridation of water has been used for the prevention of tooth decay for over fifty years. During this time little research has been done to ascertain whether it works. The chemicals used are classified as toxic industrial waste, yet no study has ever been conducted into their safety for human consumption.
At the same time, research has uncovered serious side effects including deaths, cancer, skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis, dementia, lowered IQ, kidney damage and even increased dental decay.
Strongly opposed throughout the world, water fluoridation is far less widely accepted than its proponents would have us believe. Only two percent of the people of Western Europe have their water fluoridated – almost all of them within Britain and Ireland. Despite all this, the dental organizations lobby governments to compel everyone to ingest fluoride, whether they want it or not and without regard to possible harm.
The vast majority of dentists maintain that fluoride is not debatable. However Barry Groves has assembled evidence to refute every single argument made by the dental establishment in favour of fluoridation.

The Fluoride Deception – Christopher Bryson
Concerns over fluoridated drinking water have long been derided as the obsession of McCarthyite cranks. But this muckraking j’accuse asserts that fluoride is indeed a dire threat to public health, one foisted upon the nation by a vast conspiracy—not of Communist agents, but of our very own military-industrial complex.
Investigative reporter Bryson revisits the decades-long controversy, drawing on mountains of scientific studies, some unearthed from secret archives of government and corporate laboratories, to question the effects of fluoride and the motives of its leading advocates.
The efficacy of fluoridated drinking water in preventing tooth decay, he contends, is dubious. Fluoride in its many forms may be one of the most toxic of industrial pollutants, and Bryson cites scientific analyses linking fluoridated drinking water to bone deformities, hyperactivity and a host of other complaints.
The post-war campaign to fluoridate drinking water, he claims, was less a public health innovation than a public relations ploy sponsored by industrial users of fluoride—including the government’s nuclear weapons program.
Legendary spin doctors like Edward Bernays exploited the tenuous link between dental hygiene and fluoridation to create markets to stimulate fluoride production and to prove the innocuousness of fluoride compounds, thereby heading off lawsuits by factory workers and others poisoned by industrial fluoride pollution.
Bryson marshals an impressive amount of research to demonstrate fluoride’s harmfulness, the ties between leading fluoride researchers and the corporations who funded and benefited from their research, and what he says is the duplicity with which fluoridation was sold to the people.
The result is a compelling challenge to the reigning dental orthodoxy, which should provoke renewed scientific scrutiny and public debate.

Keep Fluoride Out – Paul Connett, PhD
“For those who would call for further studies, I say fine. Take the fluoride out of the water first and then conduct all the studies you want. This folly must end without further delay” – Paul Connett
Fluoride is not an essential nutrient. No disease has ever been linked to a fluoride deficiency. Humans can have perfectly good teeth without fluoride.
Fluoridation is not necessary. Most Western European countries are not fluoridated and have experienced the same decline in dental decay as the US.
Where fluoridation has been discontinued in communities from Canada, the former East Germany, Cuba and Finland, dental decay has not increased but has actually decreased.
Despite being prescribed by doctors for over 50 years, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved any fluoride product designed for ingestion as safe or effective.
Fluoride is a cumulative poison. On average, only 50% of the fluoride we ingest each day is excreted through the kidneys. The remainder accumulates in our bones, pineal gland, and other tissues.
Rats fed for one year with 1 ppm fluoride in their water, using either sodium fluoride or aluminium fluoride, had morphological changes to their kidneys and brains, an increased uptake of aluminium in the brain, and the formation of beta amyloid deposits which are characteristic of Alzheimers disease.
When it comes to controversies surrounding toxic chemicals, invested interests traditionally do their very best to discount animal studies and quibble with epidemiological findings. In the past, political pressures have led government agencies to drag their feet on regulating asbestos, benzene, DDT, PCBs, tetraethyl lead, tobacco and dioxins. With fluoridation we have had a fifty year delay.
Unfortunately, because government officials have put so much of their credibility on the line defending fluoridation, and because of the huge liabilities waiting in the wings if they admit that fluoridation has caused an increase in hip fracture, arthritis, bone cancer, brain disorders or thyroid problems, it will be very difficult for them to speak honestly and openly about the issue. But they must, not only to protect millions of people from unnecessary harm, but to protect the notion that, at its core, public health policy must be based on sound science not political expediency.
They have a tool with which to do this: it’s called the Precautionary Principle. Simply put, this says: if in doubt leave it out. This is what most European countries have done and their children’s teeth have not suffered, while their public’s trust has been strengthened.
It is like a question from a Kafka play. Just how much doubt is needed on just one of the health concerns identified above, to override a benefit, which when quantified in the largest survey ever conducted in the US, amounts to less than one tooth surface (out of 128) in a child’s mouth?

In order to avoid being publicly humiliated, the pro-fluoridation lobby stick to a strict “No-Debate” policy, saying that debate lends credibility to the anti-fluoridation cause. This is why pro-fluoridation authorities refuse to publicly debate Dr. Connett.
American hydrofluorosilicic acid is radioactive as well
The Fluoride that is used in water supplies (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is not only a toxic industrial waste product, much of the American manufactured “product” is radioactive as well.
In the USA, where uranium is co-produced with phosphate production, radioactive cross-contamination of hydrofluorosilicic acid frequently occurs.
Hydrofluorosilicic acid that is contaminated with trace amounts of lead, arsenic, mercury and radioactive materials is delivered unrefined, and in none-pharmaceutical grade, to be used as a water fluoridation ‘product’.
‘Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time’ – Dr Robert Carton
“Fluoridation of water systems can be slow national suicide, or quick national liquidation. It is criminal insanity – treason!” – Dr. E.H. Bronner
“Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s 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.” – Charles Perkins
“I am appalled at the prospect of using water as a vehicle for drugs. Fluoride is a corrosive poison that will produce serious effects on a long range basis. Any attempt to use water this way is deplorable.” – Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd
“fluoridation … it is the greatest fraud that has ever been perpetrated and it has been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud has.” – Dr. Professor Albert Schatz
“Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer” – Charles Perkins – October 1954
“Fluoride is rat poison. It may harden tooth enamel but it softens brains” – Dr Eva Hill
