“Like so many products developed for the sake of convenience without concern for human health, teflon coated non-stick cookware when heated has proven to be a primary source of a dangerous toxic fluoride derivative, specifically perfluorinated chemicals.” This non-stick coating is also marketed as:
SILVERSTONE, FLURON, SUPRA, EXCALIBUR,
GLEBLON, XYLON, DURACOTE, AND RESISTAL.
PTFE is odorless and invisible and bioaccumulates. When heated above 260ºC it is lethal to birds (pets) ← and will give humans flu like symptoms. A Teflon pan reached 721°F in just five minutes as measured by a commercially available infrared thermometer.
PFOA is now the subject of about 3,500 personal injury claims against
DuPont, including 37 claims for wrongful death.
The toxicity doesn’t come from Teflon directly, but mainly from one of the many compounds that are released when the non-stick coating is heated to a high temperature. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), known as C8 (because it has 8 carbon atoms), is a proven carcinogen. Lab studies suggest that PFOA can cause cancer and birth defects in animals, and might pose a risk in humans. PFOA stays in the body for years and in the environment indefinitely.
However safer alternatives are now now available, see below↓
…. CeraMax Ceramic cookware is forged with a super-efficient thermal conductive base which instantly radiates heat throughout the entire pan in seconds.100% PTFE and PFOA free. Ordinary non-stick pans often contain the chemical compounds PTFE and PFOA in their coatings. These chemicals can alter the original taste of your food and can even release toxins into your food…

Teflon Cookware (CONTAINS FLUORIDE.)
In 2007, the shocking results of a study conducted at the John Hopkin’s Medical Center (Bethesda, MD) showed that levels of the toxic PFOA were found in 100% of a sample of almost 300 newborns, delivered at the hospital. Samples of umbilical chord blood were also shown to contain varying levels of PFOS. Asians (6 ng/ml) had the highest concentration, followed by Blacks (5.1 ng/ml) and Whites (4.2 ng/ml). Males babies had higher PFOS and PFOA than females. Obese and underweight mothers had slightly higher concentrations than women of normal weight. Other studies have found that some of the highest levels of PFOA and PFOS have been in children.
Two perfluorinated compounds– PFOA and PFOS– were found in virtually all of 299 newborn babies studied in Baltimore, according to scientists from Johns Hopkins University. The results indicate that exposure in the womb to these two chemicals is virtually ubiquitous. Eight other PFCs were detected less frequently.
The saturation of PFOA in human blood has lots of scientists worried.
THE PFOA MOLECULE DOSE NOT DEGRADE OVER TIME, so every one that is made and released in the environment will continue to be there for an indefinite time. The cumulative levels of PFOA will continue to increase in both the environment and in the human body.
DuPont studies show that the Teflon off-gases toxic particulates at 446° F. At 680°F Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens, two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses. At temperatures that DuPont scientists claim are reached on stovetop drip pans (1000°F), non-stick coatings break down to a chemical warfare agent known as PFIB, Perfluoroisobutylene a chemical analog of the –
WWII nerve gas phosgene…

PROBLEMS WITH AUSTRALIAN MILITARY FIRE FIGHTING CHEMICALS:
It was revealed in September 2015
the chemicals had leaked from Williamtown Air Force base into ground and surfacewater, prompting bans on bore water and closing fishing grounds. “Stop trying to downplay the seriousness of this issue. They are incredibly serious toxins, and it is a real worry for those people living around them.-” Mariann Lloyd-Smith, National Toxics Network senior advisor. – The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has started a statewide investigation into the historical use of the firefighting foam.

The Gold Coast (Queensland) commenced fluoridation on
5 November 1968, and finished on 14 July 1979,
but started again with Anna Bligh[t?] – 2008.
Brisbane Mayor Atkinson April 1985 proposed to fluoridate Brisbane city,
but changed her mind after she examined technical literature – Including:
‘Fluoridation, 1979′ by Philip R.N. Sutton.
(Provided by Brisbane Anti-Fluoridation Association)
Dr. (Sir) Llewellyn (Lew) Edwards, Minister for Health,
1974-1978. – He lost his safe seat of Ipswich when
he proposed to fluoridate all of Queensland.
The Lord Mayor’s Task Force On Fluoridation was established in January 1997 in response to debate in the media and the political arena about whether Brisbane’s water supply should be fluoridated. – “The majority of Taskforce members would not support the introduction of water fluoridation to Brisbane until the recommended Australian research has been carried out”.
The Queensland Government’s official Water Fluoridation Position Statement in 2003 admits that without the express consent of the community, water fluoridation is unethical mass medication and that a referendum ensures [some] community consent.
— In 2004, amendments were made to the Fluoridation of Public Water Supplies Act 1963 (Qld) which removed the need for a council to hold a poll for the purpose of determining whether a majority would vote against the proposal. —
The now deposed and discredited Bligh Government ignored history, science, and the wishes of the people: The Queensland Government committed $35 million to rolling out a capital program to ensure that more than 90 percent of Queenslanders
would have access to [- read forced to drink – ] fluoridated water by 2012. On the 12 Feb. 2008 the Fluoride Bill was introduced to The Parliament of Queensland by
Anna Bligh, the then Queensland’s Premier.
QUEENSLAND HEALTH – [DEPARTMENT] with help from the ADA Qld., both with an agenda of secrecy, and with little knowledge of human health, democratic rights, or eco-systems and USING DISTORTED FIGURES ( See→ The Townsville Report ) pushed the bill through the house. See → Letters sent to her at the time.

Queensland, the only Australian state that did not have
fluoridation as Dr. Exner once observed:
“… that someone would analyse tissues in both high and low fluoride areas and find that fluorine poisoning is common [in those residing in high areas]. But if every community can be fluoridated there will be no fluorine-free areas for comparison. ”Originally the fluoridation infrastructure for Queensland was to cost $35 million and now it has blown out to $113 million and still counting, plus ongoing cost of chemicals, [read imported industrial toxic waste].
Local Councils: Fluoridation advocates can no longer claim ignorance, and are now morally if not legally accountable, and may in the future be subject to
(The Queensland Health Department, funded The Australian Dental Association Queensland Branch, $220,000 as a CONtribution to its pro-fluoridation campaign. The request for this funding was directed to the Hon. Stephen Robertson MP. The Minister for Health at the time [Feb. 2006] …)
Mandatory water fluoridation was imposed on Queenslanders by the now deposed Anna Bligh, Queensland’s Premier four years, who lost the election on the 24th of March 2012 in a landslide with her Labor party representation reduced to 7 seats. This happens to governments who don’t consult with its electors or fail to listen to them. Premier Bligh Resigned The Next Day …

A NEW RECENT HOPE !
November 2012, the Queensland Parliament reversed the previous government’s mandate requiring all public potable water supplies serving more than 1000 people to add fluoride to the water. As a consequence of these changes local councils in Queensland NOW HAVE A CHOISE to add fluoride to drinking water supplies.
The previous government, under Queensland Premier Anna Bligh, announced on 5 December 2007 that the fluoridation of most of Queensland’s water supplies will begin in 2008.  When it was enacted the Water Fluoridation Act 2008 required the addition of fluoride to any water supply supplying potable water to at least 1000 members of the public, unless an exemption is granted based on safety or naturally occurring levels that meet the required levels.  Prior to this legislation Queensland was the only Australian state without a formal statewide program for the addition of fluoride to drinking water.
The Water Fluoridation Regulation 2008 listed 134 drinking water supplies that were to be fluoridated by 31 December 2012.  Of the drinking water supplies listed in the Regulation, 32 comprised the SEQ Water Grid located in Southeast Queensland. The fluoridation of these supplies by the end of 2009 accounted for the largest increase in people currently receiving fluoridated water in Queensland (approximately 2.6 million people in 2006 or 68% of the Queensland population). Prior to the requirement to add fluoride in 2008 the towns of Biloela, Dalby, Gatton, Mareeba, Moranbah, and Townsville/Thuringowa had been adding fluoride to their drinking water – some since 1972, though some of these towns stopped adding fluoride prior to the Water Fluoridation Act.  (One town did not inform the Queensland Gov. or the local residents and dentists. No body is empowered to poison the city’s water supply. We can only guess how that would have throne out the statistics.) Before the current legislation the addition of fluoride to water supplies was regulated by the Fluoridation of Water Supplies Act 1963. 
The fluoridation is regulated by QueenslandHealth,  with implementation supported by the former Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation. 
Several areas of Queensland, such as Julia Creek, Quilpie, Thargomindah and Adavale are known to have naturally occurring fluoride present in their drinking water, a characteristic that has been studied since the late 1920s.

The decision was met by applauds from the crowd in the chamber.
It’s expected to take 40 days to phase out.

FLUORIDATION IS NOT SUPPORTED BY ALL
DENTISTS, DOCTORS OR SCIENTISTS
POWERFUL CORPORATE INTERESTS ARE
INVOLVED IN THE PUSH FOR FLUORIDATION —
Fluoridation is an entrenched myth from the 1950’s. It is based on flawed research, but has become a mantra for most dental schools whose uncritical staff and students have been indoctrinated about its supposed “benefits” for over two generations. Medical schools have become aligned with this thinking. This is encouraged by the financial support that flows to universities, dental schools and to some practitioners from the sugar purveyors and industries having much to gain financially in various ways from the promotion of fluoridation.

“…The establishment ‘experts’ generally receive better coverage in the media than ‘dissidents’ on most environmental, health and political issues. In the case of fluoridation the ‘experts’ have succeeded in convincing the vast majority of people in whole countries that opponents must be either cranks, extreme right-wingers or left extremists, or health ‘faddists’. This remarkable propaganda success has been achieved primarily by trading on the authority of the medical profession and by putting pressure on ‘dissident’ medical doctors, dentists and scientists to keep silent. The stereotyping of opponents has placed pressure on scientific and professional journals and the media NOT to publish material critical of fluoridation…” However truth will prevail.
In 2009, there were 24,547 calls to U.S. Poison Control Centers due to ingestion of fluoride toothpaste.

Dr. William Marcus, the Former Chief Toxicologist of the
EPA’s Water Quality Program: ↓ ↓ ↓
Dr. Marcus’ case was taken up by the Nation Whistleblower’s Center which protects government employees from retaliation for publishing damaging facts about the government. He fought a two year legal battle where it came out that EPA lied, shredded documents, and falsified documents in their campaign against him. EPA was ordered to reinstate Dr. Marcus and pay back wages and damages for its actions. It takes a brave (or retired) scientist or dentist to speak out against the discredited practice of artificial water fluoridation, without fear of censure, or reprisal, but now some are doing just that.
7,000 employees partitioned through their union, the EPA to stop fluoridation. – Dr. Stanley Monteith Video

April 1958, the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, with more than 15,000 members, most of whom are also members of the American Medical Association, passed a resolution in opposition to fluoridation, which states:
❝ The Association condemns the addition of any substance to the public water
supply for the purpose of affecting the bodily or mental function of the consumer. ❞
