Good turnout in Carterton today. We showed two half hour documentaries, then retired Waipukurau John Jukes gave a 20 minute talk. We then had a general discussion with people very concerned about how to keep fluoridation out of Carterton, Greytown, Martinborough and Featherston.
People were also shocked to hear that the fluoridation chemicals really do come from the chimneys of the phosphate fertiliser industry and that when New Health NZ took the Govt to court to say that fluoridation should come under the Medicine’s Act the Govt calmly changed the law and made fluoridation chemicals exempt from that law. The reason they should be subject to the Medicines Act is because the Act states that if you claim that anything has a therapeutic benefit, regardless of whether it works, then it needs to be subject to this law. Fluoridation cannot comply with this law, so the Govt changed the law.
