It can if they swallow too much fluoride, says Simon Crompton. Read more in yesterdays Times article here. It is good to see more articles in the press about the dangers of fluoride but still this doesn't go far enough in covering the evidence available.
The Safe Water Campaign for Gloucestershire say NO to water fluoridation. We need your support to ensure that the Water Companies and the Strategic Health Authority don't fluoridate.
The aim of the group is to campaign for safe drinking water,
in particular to campaign against the fluoridation of our public water supplies.
Dr Peter Mansfield, a physician and an advisory board member of the recent government review of fluoridation
"No physician in his right senses would prescribe for a person he has never met, whose medical history he does not know, a substance which is intended to create bodily change, with the advice: 'Take as much as you like to, but you will take it for the rest of your life because some children suffer from tooth decay. ' It is a preposterous notion."
We at the Safe Water Campaign agree.
The chemical in question...
Hexafluorosilicic Acid is a registered Class 2 Poison under the Poisons Act 1972. It is comparable to the deadly weed killer Paraquat which has no known antidote and has now been banned from sale to gardeners. It is not certificated as a medicine. How could it be? The current level of one mg per litre of fresh water is around ten times the concentration of natural and harmless Calcium fluoride, often found in natural water sources.
