Fluoride plan costs increase

First published in News

CONTROVERSIAL plans to put fluoride in tap water in the North West have been delayed after projected costs rocketed.

Supporters of the controversial move, which has been given the go-ahead by NHS bosses on the South Coast, say it would improve East Lancashire’s poor record on tooth decay.

But opponents dispute the claim and have raised other health fears.

NHS North West said it was monitoring the situation in Southampton, where opponents have launched a legal challenge.

But in a report, it said the original costings for the scheme, thought to be about £102million had “increased significantly” and said local health trusts would not be asked to consider it until after the summer, delaying the start of a public consultation exercise.

There is no other example of forced medication, where people must take a drug against their will every day of their lives. Even if it were of value to children's teeth, 50% of all you take accumulated in the bones,the thyroid, the brain and the joints. Research shows the result is cancer, thyroid destruction and boken hips in the elderly. To get all the facts see

Fluoridation is insanely inefficient with 99.5% of fluoridated water going down the toilet and the drain, wasting 99.5% of the chemical cost. People only drink 0.5% of the water they use. A plan to give away fluoride tablets free to anyone who wants it would be much cheaper. Then the rest of us would not be forced to take a drug every day.
Fluoride is legal, and dentists may prescribe it freely. Get busy and do it with prescriptions.

Hi All.

Flouride, the stuff you stick in your mouth every morning is such a great poison, so dastardly in its effects, yet you have all been happy to use it for many a year.

This is the degree to which I present the fact, that you have all been programmed to believe anything that comes from a man in a suit.

There is some good news however, the EU Court has ruled against flouridisation of water because flouride is classed as a medicene :

So I have to inform the telegraph, you are being lied too in relation to the reason flouridisation has been put on hold.


I have a page dedicated to poisons such as flouride, aspartame, and MSG ( Monosodium Glutamate) the link to which I will present at the end of this post.

Basically, flouride destroys the bones, because the body stores the flourine particles, which are very small, in the bones. Injesting tamarind counters this.

The main use of flouride was first used in the Russian Gulags to dumb down the prisoners, it was used again in the Nazi concentration camps.

The southern counties have been flouridated for some time, and many walk around like zombies.

It is through such waste chemicals as flouride, which is a waste product from aliminium production, that the elite have managed to reduce the brain capacity from what it once was.

It is in America that this retched poison has been most used, so I would suggest you take heed of the above posts from our American friend.


Russia too, is flouridated also China, and one of the first things done in Iraq was to flouridate their water. It really is a massive silent war played against man using much of the Nazi knowledge gained in the concentration camps in the experiments carried out on the prisoners.

I read that it will cost £102 million to fluoridate the North ~West.
This is wasteful and expensive as only 1% of tap water is drunk. Most water is used by industry and for washing, so it's money down the drain! It would be much better to target fluoride at children in schools if their parents approve. A community dentist in Lanarkshire halved tooth decay by an agreement to cut children's fizzy drinks and sweets and by teaching them to clean their teeth correcty. Forcing everyone in a community to drink a potentially toxic chemical goes against all medical ethics.
