“CONSULTATION -GOOD MEDICAL PRACTICE”
As a trained academic scientist, retired for 14 years, I have had considerable time to reflect on my experiences covering some 30 years of teaching and research.
I believe INTEGRITY and OBJECTIVITY are two fundamental requirements that keep us and science honest.
Re: WATER FLUORIDATION – ONE OF THE GREATEST HEALTH DISASTERS OF THE 20TH CENTURY
Please accept this provocative (and true) assessment as an ethical challenge for your Association.
The AMA and the ADA consistently parrot the “mantra” that water fluoridation reduces dental decay, and this in turn impacts favourably on general health. Both of these claims are spurious.
But even worse, both associations refuse to apply INTEGRITY and OBJECTIVITY in addressing this important health issue which I suspect is undermining the good health of between 1 and 5 % of the Australian population.
Short-term negative health impacts caused by water fluoridation have been reported by the Dutch physician Dr. Hans Moolenburgh (sworn court Affidavit, 1993; Wisconsin Circuit Court, Case No. 92 CV 579) and Feltman and Kosel (1961; Journal of Dental Medicine, v. 16, No. 4, p.190-).
Please follow this up. I suspect that long term exposure to highly toxic fluoride deliberately added to municipal water supplies is causing/exacerbating a range of illnesses, which impacts on all of us and our families.
The two attachments indicate that there is serious CAUSE FOR CONCERN.
Is your Association up to the task?
