If you dont look you wont find, yet another case of medical malpractice in Ireland
In the same week that the Minister for Health in Israel signs new regulations ending mandatory fluoridation of drinking water, the Irish Department of Health confirm their support for its continuation, thus making Ireland one of only two countries remaining in the world with a mandatory national legislative policy dictating that every citizen (and visitor) must consume untested dangerous chemicals in their drinking water. The other country in case you don't know is Singapore (where water fluoridation is at half the recommended level practised in Ireland).
Even more alarming however is the Department of Healths response this week to a parliamentary question by Deputy Joanne Tuffy T.D. (dated 16th April 2013) that a bio-monitoring survey to establish the Total Fluoride exposure of the Irish population will NOT NOW COMMENCE as previously agreed.
The Irish Expert Body on Fluoride and Health-a political appointed body largely composed of pro fluoridation lobbyists; have instead recommended that an assessment of dental fluorosis be used a marker of total fluoride intake of the population.
It is scientifically recognised and accepted internationally by all scientific organisations including the U.S Department of Health and Human Services Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that only children younger than 8 years of age can develop dental fluorosis. As noted by the CDC:
What the Irish Expert Body and Department of Health have decided provides absolutely no measure whatsoever of the Total Fluoride intake of adults or teenagers. Neither does it provide an accurate assessment to quantify the exact fluoride exposure of children. A recent EU study determined that Irish children (from Cork City) had the highest exposure to fluoride compared to other EU member states. So instead of repeating this assessment they have decided to bury the evidence entirely.
Why such an clearly erroneous decision was made and accepted by the Minster for Health, Dr James Reilly T,D, himself a medical physician and Mr. Ivan White T.D. Minister of State at the Department of Health with responsibility for fluoridation, raises many very serious questions, not least regarding the scientific objectivity and credibility of the Irish Expert Body who propose to use a method that has no scientific basis or ability to determine or measure the actual total fluoride exposure of individuals, but also of the Minister for Health who is ultimately in charge of the Department.
This is yet another glaringly obvious gross injustice to the citizens of Ireland who’s general health has been greatly compromised directly and indirectly from overexposure to fluorides and their toxic effect on the human body. A fact that is clearly evident from the health data on disease and mortality in Fluoridated Republic of Ireland compared to non fluoridated Northern Ireland or mainland European countries.
By refusing to undertake a proper scientifically validated bio-monitoring study assessing the fluoride content of foods and beverages as well as pharmaceutical medications and by refusing to measure the fluoride level in blood, urine or tissue samples of citizens forced to consume fluoridated water, the Department of Health continue to hide from the facts and the place the health and welfare of Irish citizens at further significant risk to serious harm from fluoride intoxication.
This decision is nothing short of a national disgrace and represents criminal negligence by the Department of Health and the Irish Expert Body that can only be regarded as reckless and intentional to hide the truth from Irish citizens.
