This is a really good song about fluoridation: LINK


The beginning of a new cartoon series – The Adventures of Professor Lemon.

The story so far: the British Fluoridation Society has recently lost its Government funding.  This meant that, some months ago, it  had to move into alternative premises loaned to them by Ashton, Leigh and Wigan PCT.  But the upkeep of the alternative premises has now become too much for the PCT which has had to sell it.  Time for the BFS to move on!
                                                                   Cartoon No. 1  

  "There's a rumour, Professor Lemon, that the British Fluoridation Society will be moving into a suite of offices which belongs to the University of Manchester Dental School and which is currently used as a dead-letter office by the National Fluoride Information Centre.  Can you comment on this?"

                                                                                                                                                 Cartoon No. 2

                                       "Now, I wonder where they could have got to!?"

(Postscript: The National Fluoride Information Centre at the University of Manchester was disbanded in 2009 after 5 years of costing the tax-payer £125,000 pa.  What was the money used for?  No-one really knows!)  The BFS still soldiers on although Prof Mike Lennon mysteriously resigned his post as a Director of the BFS only to be re-appointed in February 2015.) 

Fluoride Songs:
(1) We don't want your flaming fluoride;
(2) You're just another quango, that's all

Written and sung by Brian Hooper. 

Our water has been flu-ortified
Our choice restricted, human rights denied
We don't want fluoride, hyperfluoride, go, go, get out, go!
Our water has been flu-ortified.

“Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized.  In the first it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident”
Arthur Schopenhauer (German Philosopher, 1788-1860)

My Wish List for 2016

I want to see the British Fluoridation Society's frustration following
Trading Standards' writ preventing them from using
medicinal water in the manufacture of their fairy cakes.

I want fluoridation to cease so that I can have a bubble bath in my own home.

I want to go swimming again.

Sheeple? What me?

Now, I don't want that this should alarm you but have you ever considered what the Mandarins in the Department of Health really think about us?  We've been fluoridated for 51 years and there has not been much of an outcry (until, that is, the pro-fluoridationists tried to fluoridate Southampton in 2009).  We're very law-abiding, model citizens who take our medicine without making a fuss.  There are theories that this state of lethargy may have been brought about by chemically induced torpor.  Whatever the case, could this be how the Mandarins regard us?

... but all is not lost.  We have vigilante sheep in the USA who is prepared to stand up and be counted.
