Dr Hungerford on fluoride

Fluoride

4BC Mornings: Greg Cary and Dr Carole Hungerford talk about the implications of fluoride in our water system.

Do you think we need fluoride in our water?

Blog comments Your Say

  • Fluoride is completely unacceptable. It impairs the brains ability to function efficiently. The official unit of measurement for water purity is electrical conductivity. Pure water is an insulator and cannot conduct electricity. So if a filtration process produces water that has a low conductivity then that must be a pure form of water. Right. Unfortunately that is sales BS and a disgraceful lie. Filtered water may have a lower turbidity and be clearer and have less toxic substances like Fluoride Lead Zinc Chlorine Strontium and many others but it may be more genetically harmful than the original water before filtration through invisible substances that do not affect conductivity. Reverse osmosis is a massive industry and the leader in the water filtration arena. It uses a plastic membrane with holes so small that only water molecules can penetrate. But again that is far from the truth. Derivative molecules from the plastics also penetrate and they do not affect the conductivity because they are also an insulator. These derivative molecules attach to the human body and produce the same effect as an oestrogen molecule. The effect is produced from plastics surfactants and detergents. It has exactly the same effect on the body as taking oestrogen supplements. This is not speculation. It was scientifically proven in many respected laboratories including the department of agriculture and CSIRO. The study was triggered when a lake in the NT contained male crocodiles that had no functional genitals and the species was dying. Does that bring the current gender bending situation that is so painfully obvious and prevalent into perspective. But it doesnt make the female species any stronger. It distorts their natural evolution as much as males. Stock plants fish and second generation humans. I dont know. Deliberate sabotage. Irrefutably.

    Genetic Destruction Through Water Monday 12 November, 2012 - 2:33 PM
  • I am appalled at the government adding fluoride to our water. Fluoride has been scientifically proven to be toxic when ingested into the body. Forced mass medication is a crime as far as I'm concerned. I self authorised a tax deduction for the expenses of having a reverse osmosis filter installed to remove the fluoride from my water.

  • This is scary. This poison given to pregnant women, new born baby's in bottle water (boiling water does not get rid of flouride)young children. It's crazy. My tooth paste says do not give to children under 6 years old. DO NOT SWALLOW. If call poisons info centre. flouride in water gets flushed down the toilet, watered gardens, showers washing dishes, washing machines. only the tiniest bit of water that splashes on our teeth as we drink does any good. rest gets flushed into oceans and river ways. It will now be in food in clothes, absorbed in your skin in the shower and in drinks. We are looking at a mass overdosing

  • It is the greatest health disaster of this century! It must me stopped. The mass medication of the population is un-acceptable!

  • Greg,
    Are you aware that the Fluoridation Regulation 2008 lists only 3 compounds of fluorine to be added to water supplies, NaF, Na2SiF6 & H2SiF6 - very specific. I have FOI's from round Australia listing ingredients in tested 'fluoride' mixes before addition to water, some are arsenic, cadmium, lead, zinc, copper, iron, mercury, aluminium & URANIUM-238. Great stuff to ingest, it is toxic INDUSTRIAL WASTE. It continues to build up in the body. Did you know a northern NSW council was fined in court for dumping fluoride mix in their rubbish tip? A good definition of insanity - 'fluoride' mix is poison in a rubbish tip, S6/7 dangerous goods when transported to the water reservoir, but healthy in our water supply!?

  • Hi Gregg

    There was no referendum held in Queensland. They just dumped this in our water on the justification that it is safe and effective. Clearly it is not. There have been no safety studies done in Australia. The current health minister recognised this prior to the election he lost, but now chooses to ignore. My local councillor Scot Driscole refuses to discuss this with me despite telling me prior to the election that he would do so after the election. Good to hear Dr Carol confirm the views of Dr Paul Connett and Dr William Hirzy. Anna Bligh mislead the public by saying that Townsville kids had 65% less tooth decay than Brisbane kids. The data does not show that. You cast doubt on that last time you spoke with Dr Paul Connett.
    Gregg would you please get the current health minister to debate Dr Paul Connett and justify how he can continue with the fluoridation of our water supply?
