Rebuttal: Minister’s Science Advisory Committee (NZ)

ESRAs per usual, the pro-fluoridation mafia is hitting back. We write this letter to arm you with some counter-arguments to their unscientific, simplistic mantras. Listed below are the main garbage claims you will hear, over and over again:

What is in the water? – June 12, 2013
The Office of the Prime Minister’s Science Advisory Committee
New Zealand

Claim: “The science of fluoride in water is effectively settled. It has been one of the most thoroughly worked questions in public health science over some decades.”

Response: On the contrary. When the University of York examined the evidence on fluoridation, the authors were surprised at its poor quality. According to the research team, “Given the level of interest surrounding the issue of public water fluoridation, it is surprising to find that little high quality research has been undertaken.” Three years later, the authors reiterated, “We were unable to discover any reliable good-quality evidence in the fluoridation literature world-wide… As emphasised in the report, only high-quality studies can fill in the gaps in knowledge about these and other aspects of fluoridation.”

    “We would not purposely add arsenic to the water supply. And we would not purposely add lead. But we add fluoride. The fact is that fluoride is more toxic than lead and just slightly less toxic than arsenic.”

    “The federal maximum contaminant level (MCL) for lead is 15 parts per billion (ppb), 5 ppb for arsenic and 4000 ppb for fluoride.”

    EPA scientists take action against EPA for failing to protect public health — Important scientific and technical considerations were ignored when the Recommended Maximum Contaminant Level (RMCL) for fluoride was set (1986 Amicus Brief).

    The need for a Code of Ethics at the EPA became critical. Without an enforceable code of ethics with sanctions, the distortion of truth caused by the pressures of politics would continue.

    Thanks Kevin. Had a discussion with some of my workmates today on the flouride subject. Many want to know more, so I’ll pass on these links. Thanks very much.

    martin, In order to show your work mates that you have looked at both sides you may like to give them the following link also.

    This is another great resource: http://www.fluoridealert.org

    Zinger, your link has been passed on, along with Admin’s.
    Personally, I think it would be a shame to start adding anything to Christchurches water. It may be safe to do so, or it may not be safe. If tooth decay is the issue, then perhaps too much processed sugar is the problem and no amount of water flouridation will solve that. If one brushes one’s teeth regularly then one gets more than enough flouride. Ever heard of flourosis? Flouride overdose…..
