WhooHoo! We have a pulse! In other words, people responded to the last image.
Like I said in the previous FFL Newsletter – March 20, 2015, I debated sharing William’s art work. But, I’m glad I did. It got reactions. Here’s what I heard. If you’d like to comment on these comments or anything else, go for it. It’s great to have the conversation.
It was over the top.
We need to be scientific, take the moral high ground, and avoid being extreme, desperate or overzealous. Being otherwise does not do us any favours.
Facts can’t be argued with. With this image, they can attack the messenger.
It’s good to run things by others. We need to think from others’ point of view.
The woman looks detached, numb – perhaps her pineal gland is already hardened – I suppose a dentist could be the soldier as well, but it sends a strong message. I have read that sugar on the teeth does not cause cavities, but sugar in the body does – no matter, sugar is a problem.
The only problem I have with the guy looking like Hitler is…..there was a myth(?) going around that the Nazi’s had added fluoride into the drinking water during WWII. This picture will propagate that myth and we’ll be looked upon in a bad light. We should only be telling the truth.
Could we make him look like our Mayor??? LOL! Since he seems to like the CDC Myths about fluoridation!
Pat from Fluoride Free Hamilton, NZ:
Regarding the image of Hitler – I strongly advise you not to use it. It would be used to discredit us all in a flash. Most Fluoride Free groups worldwide have come to the realisation that there is no credible evidence that fluoride was used in Nazi concentration camps (even Paul Connett mentions this in his book). I know that is not what the artist meant but just using Hitler’s image could be construed that way. We have enough evidence and science on our side already without using links that cannot be substantiated.
Keep up the good work.
Regarding the photo, I’d replace the Hitler moustache with a dentist in the background making it look like 2 people vs the mom.
A very appropriate image – CDC man and mom watching her child being poisoned by the water contaminated with toxic fluoride compound. Could very easily replace the glass of water with a needle ready to vaccinate the child or a plate of unsuspecting GMO ‘food’ the list goes on – Yes, the picture is very appropriate and the message is clear.
Whether or not the Nazis fluoridated the prisoners we don’t know. Using Hitler in the illustration wasn’t intended to suggest anything but evil in general. As convinced as Hitler was of doing right, yet being so evil, so the various institutions forcing people to consume fluoride are evil in doing so.
What do you see in this image?
Is it better than the previous one?

Subject: Important new science on water fluoridation
Greeting from Australia. I hope you have all wintered well in Alberta.
Dr. James Beck and I are gravely concerned. It appears that, as you are all very busy, much of the new science around fluoride and water fluoridation has escaped your purview, or that it has been otherwise neglected or marginalized. In an effort to assist you in keeping abreast of all the new science these days, and to assist in public education and policy formulation, I have appended important links below.
I would much appreciate if you can look carefully at these studies and get back to me with comments as soon as possible.
Anyone who chooses to ignore the plethora of new and mostly good science against water fluoridation will only be digging a deeper hole from which to extricate themselves when this poorly constructed and unscientific program is finally taken to its grave in the near future.
As Alan Greenspan stated in his recent book, it is a Herculean task for public officials to admit that they are wrong. May you have the strength of many!
Thanks for your attention to this important matter. I await your reply.

Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association from Ashley J. Malin and Christine Till (Environmental Health (2015) 14:17)
Two recent Choi et al. papers, a meta-analysis of 27 IQ studies (Environ Health Perspect. 2012 October; 120(10): 1362–1368) and the other on outcomes of other neurological tests in children (Neurotoxicology and Teratology (2015) 47:96–101)

At this time there have been no responses from Lethbridge City Councillors.
As of February 2015, a total of 50 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence, and a total of 33 studies have investigated the relationship fluoride and learning/memory in animals. Of these investigations, 43 of the 50 human studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ, while 31 of the 33 animal studies have found that fluoride exposure impairs the learning and/or memory capacity of animals. The human studies, which are based on IQ examinations of over 11,000 children, provide compelling evidence that fluoride exposure during the early years of life can damage a child’s developing brain…
When considering their consistency with numerous animal studies, it is very unlikely that the 43 human studies finding associations between fluoride and reduced IQ can all be a random fluke. The question today, therefore, is less whether fluoride reduces IQ, but at what dose, at what time, and how this dose and time varies based on an individual’s nutritional status, health status, and exposure to other contaminants (e.g., aluminum, arsenic, lead, etc). Of particular concern is fluoride’s effect on children born to women with suboptimal iodine intake during the time of pregnancy, and/or fluoride’s effects on infants and toddlers with suboptimal iodine intake themselves. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, approximately 12% of the U.S. population has deficient exposure to iodine.

I know most of you are also involved with the GMO Free movement. I had to share this video of an interview with Patrick Moore defending Monsanto’s Roundup. It’s priceless!
