Blog comments

  • You failed to mention that she was Australian and that she was on holidays Europe, Joe. You mentioned she was on some Facebook forum, with the word Australia in it and while she was in Europe she noticed ..., that's all, should I be reading your mind, to join the dots? Funny how people expect their opinions to be heard, and respected, and yet when they run out of steam they resort to childish name calling.

  • Elaine's case sounds like 1 in 22 million to me. Filtering all of the poor lady's water, shouldn't be too hard.

  • Page 3 of today's CMail. Drinking Townsville's town water certainly doesn't seem to be causing any ill to effects to young Eliza's IQ, Jaya.

  • Sonja, that didn't' take you long to work out. All the evidence we need is in Sydney and Townsville, no need to look any further. Do Daniel, Jaya, Joe Bloggs & Sonja oppose vaccination, also mass medication, as well?

  • JamesW. Filtering the water is not necessarily the answer; not unless you can filter the entire household's water so that water for washing and bathing is not fluoridated either. Take for instance the hypersensitive-to-fluoride lady in Geelong who can't even bathe/shower in fluoridated water because it causes her to collapse and brings her body out in wields that can take months to resolve. Her compromised lung function dropped TO 25% when she was placebo tested in a clinical setting by a respiratory specialist. One small exposure to fluoride from a dental filling brought her out in ulcer-type lesions within a day or two of receing the filling. Her dentist actually gave her a signed letter that attests to this. I've sighted the letter. I'm afraid that one size doesn't fit all. Elaine is a figurative canary in a mine.

  • James W, the woman I referred to lives in Australia, and was in Europe on holiday, moron. You are so stupid you wouldn't notice "any significant evidence" of your arse being on fire. You can't argue with crazy people. If you aren't prepared to make yourself accountable for your actions, I can only hope you are made accountable by others in the near future.
