HSE Expert Body on Fluoride and Health Not Fit for Purpose

In January 2012 medical researchers published new evidence in the journal of Nuclear Medicine Communications (1) demonstrating that fluoride is a major contributor factor to coronary heart disease, by far the single largest fatal illness prevalent in Ireland today. A disease that has seen a fourfold increase in primary care for cardiovascular conditions in recent years.

Research published in 2011 in a neurological peer reviewed journal (2) found that chronic exposure to and ingestion of the synthetic fluoride chemicals added to water supplies can cause serious brain and neurological damage.

Research published in 2007 by Professor Masters and Dr. Coplan in the peer reviewed journal Neurotoxicology (3) demonstrated that silicofluorides in drinking water increased the bioavailability of toxins such as lead increasing the prevalence of learning deficits, substance abuse and violent crime in fluoridated communities.

Research published in 2006 by Dr. Bassin Dr.
Wypij, Dr. Davis and Dr. Mittleman in the peer reviewed cancer research journal Cancer Causes and Control (4) found that exposure to fluoride in water increased the risk of young boys developing osteosarcoma , a frequently fatal bone cancer disease.

The lack of appropriate risk assessment and due diligence undertaken by the regulatory agencies in Ireland to adding untested silicofluorides to public water mirrors the recent HSE scandal regarding state care of children, which found that the Health Service Executive attempted to cover-up findings, oversaw a culture of official denial and abdicated its duty to protect the most vulnerable in our society.

The recently published report by Dr. Geoffrey Shannon also highlighted the systemic failure of numerous state agencies documenting a litany of human error, poor practice, a refusal of professionals to be accountable and the avoidance of responsibility.

The same reported failures have been demonstrated regarding water fluoridation and safety standards for the protection of children and sensitive subgroups within the population.

For example babies in Ireland fed formula milk made up from fluoridated tap water are exposed to fluoride at levels up to 20,000 percent more than breast fed infants. The United States Institute of Medicine has set an upper daily fluoride dietary intake level for babies of 0.01ppm, the Canadian Paediatrics society has recommend a level of zero.

In Ireland all bottle fed babies are exposed to fluoride levels 8000 per cent higher than the above recommended levels.

The European Food Safety authority have found that when babies are exposed to fluoride that 90% of the fluoride is retained in their developing bones. The Journal of Dental Medicine (5) reported how it delays the eruption of primary teeth in infants may cause hypothyroidism as well as neurological, gastrointestinal and other negative reactions for the exposed individual. Medical research indicates that fluoride exposure may also be a contributory factor in sudden death syndrome.

The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the American Dental Association (ADA), Canadian Dental Association (CDA), United States Centre for Disease Control (CDC), United States Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) and the Canadian Paediatrics Society (CPS) as well as many other medical and non-medical organisations, who have advised parents that fluoridated water should not be mixed with concentrated formula or foods intended for babies.

In comparison with the rest of Europe no baby, child, infant or adult are exposed to dangerous chemically synthesized silicofluorides compounds in drinking water. The Health and Environment Departments in every European country believe that the systemic mass fluoridation of a population through fluoridating public water is medically unsound and ethically unlawful.

Despite this the ‘Irish Expert Body on fluoride and health’ falsely maintain that adding unnatural silicofluoride chemicals to drinking water is safe and effective for all ages and every member of the population.

It should be known that there are no medical doctors, immunologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, epidemiologists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, haematologists, nephrologists, neurologists, pathologists, paediatricians, pharmacologists, radiologists, rheumatologists, toxicologists, urologists or biologists, ecologists, environmental scientists, soil scientists, inland fisheries experts, eco-toxicologists or veterinary specialists represented on the body as such it is clearly not fit for purpose and should be disbanded immediately.
