Letter to the Editor: Fluoride in Drinking Water.


Just wondering why your group are not pushing to have fluoride in drinking water removed from communities that are affected by Lead mining. Fluoride have been found to be an accelerator for lead absorbasion so if it was removed the whole community would benefit. Lead causes high blood preasure, heart disease, kidney disease, cancer and reduced fertility in adults and more. At the moment here in Broken Hill the way the advertisement is run it looks like lead only effect children 0 to 5 years. They also have a back ground level at 0 to 5 Ug/dl!!! And casually say everyone will have some lead in their blood. http://leadsmart.nsw.gov.au/effects-of-lead/#effects

Mount Isa have no fluoride in their water supply and tests show children have over all less elevated lead levels. Removing fluoride is also FREE. No cost to anyone. Only medical providers who will have less clients. Fluoride causes similar health problems to children as lead with reduced IQ etc.

Editor’s note: I have decided as a first step to read, Scientific Knowledge in Controversy: The Social Dynamics of the Fluoridation Debate by Brian Martin (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1991) The book can be downloaded from http://www.bmartin.cc/pubs/91skic.html
