God Bless the Daily Mail
Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 26, 2014
I love the Daily Mail – not because of its integrity (hah!), not because it is the most accessible online newspaper (which it is), but because of the quality of commentary from its readers. I read the health stories – and the DM (bless its heart) publishes any bit of PR emerging from the Department of Health as if it were the gospel truth. So chemo is good for cancer (even though its effectiveness is really not so good and the cost of it is crippling the NHS) because ‘experts’ say it is good. And so it is today with Fluoride which Government backed – but un-named -‘experts’ say is beneficial for us in reducing tooth decay and kidney stones. But before we accept the word as it has been dictated to the health reporter of the DM let us see what the commentators have to say:
“Lies – Fluoride has even been said to be a deadly toxin by The Lancet (top medical journal in the world) and yet the DM continues with its own agenda to peddle lies and lies. Fluoride has been proven time and time again to be on zero benefit to teeth (in fact it does the opposite and can cause damage) and it has been proven to be a deadly toxin to humans and animals. Just read the warning on the tube of toothpaste for goodness sake!”
“ John Colquhoun, DDS, Principal Dental Officer for Auckland, New Zealand and chair of that country’s Fluoridation Promotion Committee, reviewed New Zealand’s dental statistics in an effort to convince skeptics that fluoridation was beneficial and found that tooth decay rates were the same in fluoridated and non-fluoridated places, which prompted him to re-examine the classic fluoridation studies. He withdrew his support for it in ‘Why I Changed my Mind About Water Fluoridation’ (Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 1997;41:29¿44). It’s not safe!”
“The Harvard School for Public Health reports: In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted. Fluoride also damages the brain, both directly and indirectly. Rats given fluoridated water at a dose of 4 ppm develop symptoms resembling attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. High concentrations of fluoride accumulate in the pineal gland, which produces serotonin and melatonin. It’s not safe!”
“Why is no one mentioning Alzheimer’s, fluoride is a byproduct of aluminium which will cause Alzheimer’s , but hey they’ve got get get rid of an industrial byproduct somewhere.”
“Industrial chemical waste, euphemistically called fluoride, in your drinking water supply will never be able to counteract the effects of sugary drinks and treats, nor make up for minerals lacking in a poor diet. The studies showing significant correlations between industrial waste and various cancers, and the well-documented 7-point decline in intelligence quotas, have never been refuted. Besides that, it is not even dental fluoride! And is it not illegal to medicate members of the public who do not suffer a particular disease? Please, do not swallow the fluoride lie. Insist on pure water and let those who need fluoride see their dentist.”
“Can you please list all the scientists involved in the study and declare their interests? Any links to the companies that might be supplying the flouride? Shares in the water companies etc?”
“’Tooth decay is a significant public health problem in England,’ the report states.” Stupidity is an even bigger concern.
It is clear to me that the DM does a great service in providing people with knowledge the opportunity to inform the public – through the Comments section.
I was therefore very unhappy that no-one was able to add their comments to the news that Dr Julian Kenyon was being hauled up before a medical tribunal for the temerity of offering SPDT, a non-drug based cancer therapy which has been around a long time and which has cured the cancer of the only person I know who has undergone it (see my book The Amazing Cancer Kid). The DM sneered at this therapy as being a last resort for desperate patients – yes. But it would be the first resort if patients knew about it and it was offered on the NHS.
