Dirty Politics and Laundered Science

Last week we had Dirty Politics this week we have Laundromat Science A “review” of fluoridation published yesterday (22nd August) was chaired by committed fluoridationists Professors Peter Gluckman and David Skegg.

Open Letter to Prime Minister John Key – More Dirty Politics?

Fluoride Free New Zealand is concerned with the secrecy surrounding the fluoridation review being led by pro-fluoridationists Peter Gluckman and Prof Skeg.   Given the Ministry of Health’s uncooperative approach to engage in discussion and debate on this issue we are extremely concerned that there has been no transparency around this process.

Open Letter to Labour’s David Shearer

Fluoride Free NZ is surprised to hear you refer to those of us who take an active concern of clean pure drinking water as parasites. We find your comments baseless and insulting to the majority of international scientists and world governments, who have rejected fluoridation as ineffective, unsafe, and unethical.  It also seems a rather…
