The Decline of Tooth Decay occurred "Regardless" of Water Flouridation
A short article below plus images that show an international comparison of tooth decay in countries with and without water fluoridation.

THE WATER-FLUORIDATION HOAX
Article from 1997.
If the addition of sodium-fluoride to our (Australian) water supplies is so safe and effective, why has it been banned or abandonded in such enlightened European countries as: Norway, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, France, Italy, and West Germany?(1)
In proportion to it's population, Australia is the most heavily fluoridated country in the world; 98% of the world's population do not drink artificially fluoridated water.
Does Fluoridation Reduce Dental Decay?
A computer analysis of the data from the largest dental survey ever done -of nearly 40,000 school children - by the U.S. National Institutes of Dental Research revealed no correlation between tooth decay and fluoridation. In fact, many of the non-fluoridated cities had better tooth decay rates than fluoridated cities. The city with the lowest rate of tooth decay was not fluoridated. Of the three with the highest rate of decay, two were partially fluoridated.
Similarly, the Missouri State Bureau of Dental Health:
Moreover, a University of Arizona study, reported in the 27 July 1992 Chemical & Engineering News, found that:
Adverse Health Effects of Water Fluoridation
Figures released by the U.S. National Centre for Health Statistics reveal that the ten cities with the worst rate of infant mortality have all been artificially fluoridated at least 17 years or longer! After the first full year of fluoridation, Kansas city's (USA) infant mortality increased 13% (The Kansas City Star 21.11.82). After the fifth year of fluoridation in Kansas city, infant mortality increased 36% (Kansas City Star 26.2.87). Japan, with no fluoridation, has the lowest infant mortality rate in the industrialised world, and the longest life expectancy. (3)
Dr. J Benoit-Bundock, Senior Adviser to the Minister of the Environment, Quebec, Canada, 1979, in a government report recommending against fluoridation of Quebec's water supplies (4)
Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice John P. Flaherty, after holding a lengthy series of judicial hearings, issued an injunction against the use of fluoride:
The Journal of the American Medical Association, February 10, 1951 had this to say about fluoride:
Suppression of Civil Rights in Australia re: Fluoridation.
In November 1994 the Victorian Parliament passed an amendment to the Fluoridation Act by changing the Constitution to stop the Supreme Court from hearing cases against Artifical Fluoridation. If you are poisoned by fluoride in Victoria tough luck, there is no protection under law.
The Tasmanian Government in 1995 passed a Bill through the Lower House to prohibit the holding of meetings on the subject of Flouridation anywhere at all in Tasmania. Called the Consequential Amendments Bill it was later withdrawn but is being re-worded. Outside of Tasmania, no outcry, no boycotts, why?
A draconian law was enacted in NSW in 1989. Because of this law, a Council cannot cease Fluoridation of its own water supply, after requests by public demand, unless it gets permission from the Health Department. And there is little chance of that.
Australia is a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966). This U.N. law states that 'no one shall be subjected without his consent to medical or scientific experimentation.' The Health Dept. cannot produce one double blind scientific study which proves absolutely the safety and efficacy of fluoridation. It seems we are all experimental subjects.
If fluoridation is so safe or effective, why this repressive legislation ?
Why don't we hear about it in the media?
P.S.- You can't avoid fluoride by drinking bottled beverages. Where do you think the water in them comes from? The tap! Also, fluoridated water is used to produce and subsequently concentrates in the food we eat. Moreover, you absorb it through your skin when you shower! The only way to avoid fluoride is by removing it through political action. We need to make artificial fluoridation of water supplies an election issue.
