Blog comments Your Say

  • I commend Dr Connet and Greg for bringing this debate out into the open
    Comment from Rich Monday 18th
    I make my own T/paste
    Coconut oil, bi-carb and peppermint drops.
    Fantastic refreshing absolutely not oily. I have been making my own for about 2yrs.
    Greg if you read this ask
    Gary from drive to have a listen he is very pro fluoride and bags us who don't want to have this garbage in our water.

  • Rich Monday, fluoride is in most of the toothpastes, but thankfully, not all. In the USA, it carries a health warning. I brush my teeth with whatever is there, but prefer non-fluoride because I am over 12 years old. If you are over 12, it won't do you any good either. If kids swallow it, it could poison them. However these comments are about fluoride in our water.
    It's interesting that pro-fluoride people tend to slag and slander people, rather than comment courteously. We do know that prolonged ingestion lowers the IQ, as Dr Connett related, so perhaps there's a connection.

  • I must thank Professor Paul Connett for taking the time to bring the truth of water fluoridation to the people and a huge thank you to 4BC and Greg Cary for being a very rare mainstream media to perform this interview and publish our comments against water fluoridation/pollution. To my continued horror the courier mail and most other mainstream news will never publish anything very adverse against water fluoridation/pollution, they have never in all the years even published one of my comments - it is disgraceful - that is why I am so impressed for what 4BC and Greg Cary has been doing in giving those against the hazardous waste pollutant chronic poisoning of our drinking water supplies (& hence food chain) A VOICE !

  • Thank you Paul. The Pro's have been dishing up their side for 60 years. It's about time there was a DEBATE in Australia - openly and fairly. The people deserve the truth; not, lies and spin. We are grateful you took the time to come to our country to assist us; and thank you too, 4BC for being one of the only stations to have the guts to broadcast this interview.

  • To all those complacent, gullible and trusting people who think 'fluoride' is great - do your own independent research - you will discover you have been fooled - the 'fluoride' added to our drinking water supplies and hence also contaminating the entire food chain is in fact, dangerously corrosive hazardous waste pollutants (from phosphate fertilizer manufacturing) fluorosilicic acid/silicofluorides and co-contaminants of lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, etc.; also added to that hazardous waste soup is aluminium sulphate.
    Added to this fraud of fluoridation is the fact that Australia wide is in dental crisis after decades of fluoridation first commencing in Beaconsfield Tasmania in 1953 and also the USA is in dental crisis after 67 years of water fluoridation first commencing in Grand Rapids, Michigan in l945 and yes Grand Rapids is also in dental crisis.
    We are also suffering crisis of Alzheimers Disease & Kidney Disease from this potent neurotoxic soup in our drinking water & hence through our entire food chain. Hazardous waste pollutants have no place being dumped into the drinking water supplies using the populations' kidneys as hazardous waste disposal/filtration units. The only answer EVER was to provide access to affordable dental health care services for all the population.
    Water fluoridation not safe & not effective & you will regret this forced chronic poisoning of the population. The only answer ever was to provide access to affordable dental health care services for all the population.

  • Isn't Flouride in the toothpaste we buy?
    What do all these flouride phobiacs brush their teeth with?
