This paper will discuss the various hazards fluoride poses to human health..
Fluoride: Potential Developmental Neurotoxicity
Fluoride is added to municipal water supplies and dental products, such as toothpaste, to prevent or reduce tooth decay. People are primarily exposed to fluoride from drinking water and use of fluoridated dental products, with water fluoridation representing 30% to 70% of a typical individual’s total exposure. Fluoride is also used in consumer products, such as cleaning supplies, and industrial applications. Workers in some occupations may be exposed to fluoride by inhaling fluoride compounds at their place of employment.
Poison: there were 494 mentions that fluoride is a poison.
It is a poison. It affects thyroids, liver, kidneys etc. Absolutely NO! !
Science has proven fluoride added to water supply causes cancer, bone malformation, ADHD,
asthma, and a range of other health issues …. Most importantly FLUORIDE IS A POISON and not
necessary for a healthy lifestyle or person.
It is a poison, if people are so keen for fluoride they can take a tablet each day. I strongly object to
the dentist who has been interviewed on ABC radio, he is not even from Australia. My teeth are fine
(I am 69 years old) and my children and grandchildren have good teeth too, all without flouride.
Giving one example of scientific studies done, Fluoride was officially classed as a neurotoxin in the
prestigious medical journal the Lancent in March 2014.
Because fluoride is unsafe poisonous shouldn’t be in our water supply. We have the right to drink
pure clean water and not mass medicated. Can the council be 100% sure that fluoride is safe?
It’s a poison. I buy toothbrushes at school for my class as some children do not have a toothbrush.
dental care has to be taught. The people who don’t clean teeth/ provide brushes drink soft drink
…not water with poison in it.
fluoride is a toxic by product from the aluminium processing industry, after all the years of fluoride
being added to many communities around the world has shown no benefit to oral health – but has
shown many side effects to brain and organ health – DONT ADD THIS POISON
Everybody has the right to be supplied with fresh, uncontaminated drinking water. If anyone wishes
to have fluoride added to their drinking water, then they should buy fluoride tablets and poison
themselves. It’s only common sense, fluoride cannot be taken out of the water but can easily be
Fluoride is a poison as outlined by the WHO. Topical application fine for teeth – not ingested.
Fluoride is a by-product of aluminium which is poisonous and ban in most of western countries.
Fluoride is carcinogenic in a long run. The main culprit for kids having problems with their teeth is
sugar from softdrinks, colas and high sugar products such as biscuits, ect.ect…As a ratepayer I don’t
want chemical in my drinking water. Dentists in Cairns haven’t got any ideas about what the harm
fluoride can do in children. I believe it’s a big responsibility for Cairns city council to decide to put
fluoride in water knowing it’s poisonous, you’ve got enough information on the internet to find out.
SOLUTION: people who want a by-product of aluminium for their children can buy fluro tablet
subsidize by the city council, or to help us to buy a reverse osmosis filtering system for those against
Because in all studies from everywhere else, it is a poison. My pets, clothes and garden don’t need
fluoride; cost saving; provide tablets to those who want them.
It’s a violation of my human rights to choose medication, fluoride is actually a toxic poison, there is
no way of controlling the dose my family and I get, I don’t trust the source of the fluoride (where are
you getting the fluoride from, what isotope is it and what other potential contaminants are in it) and
there are no independent scientific studies that show that fluoride in drinking water increases dental
health let alone also proving that it doesn’t have a negative impact on the greater health of people
such as toxic effects on thyroid health.
It is poison. Educate about better ways to look after our bodies / teeth, but do not mandate poison in
our water supplies.
Must not subject those of us that don’t want fluoride in our water to its documented adverse health
effects. It should be a choice not a poison forced upon us.
Topical fluoride OK, NOT Ingested! WHO states it is a neurotoxin!
It is a known poison and nobody should put this in their bodies
Fluoride is a bio-accumulative, endocrine disrupting, carcinogenic neurotoxin with no nutritional
Something as crucial as our water supply should not be tampered with. I have a thyroid condition and
fluoride is harmful to my health. Poison has no reason to be in our water. Should it be added to
Cairns water, I would consider moving away to a place without poison in the drinking water. If people
want fluoride, let them add it to their own water!
Fluoride is a toxic by-product from industrial smelters that cost the company to dispose of. It is cheap
for them to put it in our water supply. Also on toothpaste it says don’t ingest because fluoride is
toxic. Please don’t put it in the water supply.
The world health organisation has in the last few months classed fluoride in the same category as
arsenic … brushing teeth is how you stop decay – ask any dentist
It has now officially been classed as a neurotoxin. Many places around the world are beginning to
ban Fluoride. I’d rather think Cairns Council is smarter than other Councils by not messing with the
it’s a neurotoxin that 50 studies (incl. by Harvard Uni) have shown to reduce IQ in
It’s a neurotoxin banned in most of Europe.
I absolutely object to poisonous industrial waste being dumped into the public water supply
It is a poison
A report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially
classified fluoride as a neurotoxin, in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury. The fluoride
they want to add to our water supply is a toxic by-product from the fertilizer industry and there’s no
doubt about it: this fluoride should not be ingested, if so you would be exposed to a toxic drug-like
substance every time you take a sip. This is reckless, as you cannot control the dose ingested, or who
receives it, and there’s no medical supervision. Water fluoridation clearly violates your right to
informed consent as far as medical decisions go. There are no benefits from ingesting fluoride, for
fluoride to have any benefit in regards to dental health it has to be applied in a topical manner.
Please keep fluoride a known neurotoxin out of our water supply
Fluoride is cumulative toxin that affects our general health in a non discriminatory manner. It is
ridiculous to believe that it only changes tooth enamel but does not affect kidneys, liver, digestion,
etc. Materia Medica lists fluoride as a POISON.
It is toxic to ingest and we should have the CHOICE whether we wish to be exposed to chemicals!!!
This sort of application of fluoride means there is NO WAY to control dosage or level of consumption.
The fluoride they put in our drinking water is not a pharmaceutical grade additive, or as many think,
natural. It is an industrial waste by-product. The substance added to our drinking water is called
hydrofluorosilicic acid. It is a toxic waste substance created from the production of aluminum,
fertilizer, steel and nuclear industries. It’s not the natural element of fluoride, again, it’s industrial
toxic waste from China. If someone is so keen on ingesting this, they should take fluoride tablets and
not expect others to be forced to drink and bath in it.
Fluoride is a toxic by-product of mining and should not be dispersed in our drinking water. Mining
companies should be held responsible to clean up their site. Tap water should be kept as pure as
possible. If fluoride is added to our drinking water there is no option I can take it out. Therefore I
would be forced to consume a toxin.
The type of fluoride used is highly toxic to the kidneys and causes all types of health problems, if
parents want it for their children they should use safe alternative form in the form of fluoride tablets
from the chemist the majority of the population it is a toxin and we need to filter our water as a
results or buy bottled water if we want to stay well. Most people are very misinformed on the
dangers of this toxin in our water.
It is a extremely toxic and being sourced from an industrial waste product – I very much want a tax on
fluoride is a poison we consume large amounts of water in the tropics and this amount of poison is
not good for anybody. The simple act of brushing your teeth and eating less sugar work much better
than forcing people to ingest poison
The fluoride that would be added isn’t natural – it’s a by-product of the fertilizer industry from china
and is harmful. It accumulates in the body. Nobody wants it even though there is an agenda pushing
for this to happen. Enough people have said no in the paper and on social media. It is poison.
we don’t need it and why should we who have hygiene be chemical treated because of those who
cannot make the effort plus the cost is very high and the compound is very poisonous in its
concentrate and another accident waiting to happen.
Fluoride is a toxic by product & contributes to dementia & other neurological conditions. This is mass
POISONING of the population. I want the choice to NOT drink POISON.
Individual Choice: there were 346 mentions that adding fluoride to the
city’s water supply would take away people’s choice on whether they ingest it.

Fluorine (F) is the most reactive nonmetal and the most electronegative element, and therefore
almost never occurs in nature in its elemental state; it combines with all elements, except oxygen and
the noble gases, to form fluorides. Sodium fluoride (CAS No. 7681-49-4) appears as an odourless
white powder or colourless crystals, with a water solubility of 4% at 15°C and a pH (saturated
solution) of 7.4 (1). Hydrogen fluoride or hydrofluoric acid (CAS No. 7664-39-3) is a colourless
gas or fuming liquid with strong irritating odour, highly corrosive, very soluble in water and with a
vapour pressure of more than 1 atmosphere. Odour detectable limits are 0.033–0.1333 mg/m3
while the irritating concentration is 4.17 mg/m3 (2).
Inorganic and organic fluorides are present in all soils and water, as well as in the plants and animals
consumed by humans for food (3). Except for industrial emissions, the largest environmental source
of fluorides is fluoridated water supplies; fluorine is added deliberately with the aim of preventing
dental caries. In some parts of the world, deposits of rocks containing a high level of fluoride cause
a large increase in the fluoride content of water or food and, consequently, the exposure to fluoride
is sufficiently high (usually more than 6 mg/day) to cause endemic fluorosis (3), which is
characterized by stiff joints, weight loss, brittle bones, anaemia and weakness. Fluoride is found in
insecticides, rodenticides, floor polishes, in the petroleum and aluminium industries, glass etching and
timber preservation and in dietary supplementation and toothpastes (up to 1 mg/g of toothpaste),
and it is added to water supplies (4). Hydrogen fluoride/hydrofluoric acid is used in the
semiconductor industry, the manufacture of chemicals, solvents and plastics, and in laundries.
The Dental Association pushes the Fluoride agenda also…

Babies (in the womb also) kidney’s can’t discrete fluoride from their bodies and it effects their development of brain and lungs… watch video
Mark Aldridge discusses his research about fluoride.. below on video..
I am getting a little older and a little tired of fighting for every simple thing that ought to be already protected by those we elect to do that for us.This is an update on articles I wrote decades ago on fluoride, not well done, but past time I made a series of videos, in case, just some of them assist in educating people on the issues we face as a nation.I keep waiting to script something, dress well, and do it more professionally, but if I keep waiting I will never get anything done.So excuse the poor quality and I know most people do not care in any event.
