Rupert Murdoch run media The Daily Telegraph, in Australia, has launched a major push for federal and state government to override local councils and fluoridate all water supplies.
This is despite the growing scientific evidence and public backlash against fluoridation.
Studies are showing that the sodium fluoride in the water supply is linked to a host of diseases including thyroid problems, calcification of arteries, skeletal fluorosis, lowered IQ (Harvard study), neurotoxic effects on consciousness and is actually not proven to prevent cavities at all.
Citizens in major Australian towns Cairns and Byron Bay have successfully campaigned to have fluoride removed from their water supply and are doing just fine.
So desperate are some governments to keep the water supply fluoridated that there have been calls for people who wish to drink clean water to be branded as terrorists.
In the propaganda filled article it:
calls for state governments to override local councils decisions on fluoridation
labels councils ‘wacky’ for not fluoridating the water supply
calls for the Prime Minister Tony Abbott to get tough, i.e. exercise dictatorial powers
claims that fluoride causes ‘no ill health effects’, despite the studies showing otherwise
…and specifically calls for:
State Governments to seize power from councils over water fluoridation
Federal Government to lead States agreement to fluoridate all water for towns over 1000 population
Federal dental funding to States tied to water fluoridation
NSW to amend Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies Act 1957 to give power to Health Minister
