Fluoride furore

Australia Protests Against Fluoridation

Fluoride furore: "Also in the crowd was Dr Andrew Harms, former state president of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) — who stepped onto a block of limestone symbolising what protestors claim is the environmental damage fluoride could do to the environment — to deliver his speech to the crowd.

Dr Harms, who once supported the addition of fluoride to drinking water, but said he later resigned from the ADA when he found evidence that fluoride was a poison which caused illnesses such as rheumatism, expressed his disappointment at government officials’ lack of interest in listening to the people."
