If you want to stop forced-fluoridation, ie the dumping of industrial fluoride pollution into public water supplies, here is a list of things which may help.
- 1. Support, or start, a local campaign
- If you don’t know if there is a local campaign where you live, you might be able to find one on social media or facebook. If you don’t think your local group is up to the job, start your own.
- 2. Educate yourself
- Many books/reports have been written on forced-fluoridation/fluoride toxicity, some of which are available for free online, as are various systematic reviews, the most comprehensive of which is the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards. It is particularly helpful when people with a background in science, dentistry, or medicine educate themselves on the issue. It should be emphasised, however, that everyone who opposes forced-fluoridation has every right to defend themselves and/or others against it on human rights grounds, regardless of their qualifications or knowledge of the health effects.
- 3. Spread the word
- Various means of communication can be used, from talking to someone face-to-face to using the mass media. It’s just as much about reaching the large numbers of people who are already sympathetic to the cause, but who have not yet done anything about it, as trying to convince people that forced-fluoridation should be opposed, in my opinion.
- 4. Take legal action
- Forced-fluoridation is illegal on many counts, but the law is not being enforced. There is a first time for everything, though. If you or your children have dental fluorosis, another tack is to sue for damages, which is likely to be successful as I understand it.
- 5. Don’t give your money to fluoridationists
Dentists make a lot of money, and dentists in force-fluoridated areas make a lot of money from cosmetically treating dental fluorosis. They are literally profiting from poisoning children. Doctors, other health practitioners, and pharmaceutical companies are also profiting from skeletal fluorosis and other adverse health effects. You may be able to find dentists, doctors, and so on in your area who have stood up for your right not to be medicated without your informed consent via the Professionals Statement on the Fluoride Action Network website. Otherwise, a holistic dentist may be the next best option for your teeth. Whatever you do, don’t give your money to freaks who publicly support forced-fluoridation.
You can also boycott Colgate-Palmolive, which spends millions funding fluoridationist pseudoscience at The University of Adelaide and elsewhere, and which indoctrinates children in schools and kindergartens. Colgate-Palmolive has many different brands. In some cases, there may also be opportunities to boycott the companies which are making money from selling their industrial fluoride pollution to governments. For example, in Australia phosphate fertiliser manufacturer CSBP sells its hexafluorosilicic acid waste product as a force-fluoridation chemical. CSBP is owned by Wesfarmers, which also owns major retailing chains such as Coles, Bunnings, and Officeworks. Your tax money is already paying for force-fluoridation chemicals, equipment, and propaganda, whether you like it or not.
- 6. Don’t vote for fascist political parties or candidates
- To my knowledge, Sinn Fein in Ireland is the only major political party in any of the countries where a majority of the population is directly subjected to forced-fluoridation which does not have a fascist policy on this issue.
- 7. Think about who your real friends are
- If someone wants to deliberately ingest extra fluoride it’s up to them, and they can take it individually just as they would take any other pharmaceutical or dietary chemical individually. In contrast, forced-fluoridation is a blatant abuse of human rights, and anyone who supports it is not your friend. Morally, an unrepentant fluoridationist is no better than an unrepentant war criminal, paedophile, or other violent criminal. Ignorance of the consequences is not a valid excuse in my opinion.
