"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
                                                                                                            Martin Luther King Jr.

"As every
past generation has had to disenthrall itself from an inheritance of truisms and stereotypes, so in our time we must move on from reassuring repetition of stale phrases to a new, difficult, but essential confrontation with reality.


For the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.  Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears.  We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations.  We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."

                                                                                                            President John F. Kennedy

"Any chemical substance, when used to prevent or cure disease, is a medicine by any and all dictionary definitions. So that is a medicine distributed on a mass basis in such a manner that its consumption is for all practical purposes compulsory.
This is medication from a public health point of view which always ignores the individual and thinks in terms of good for the state (majority). For the first time we are determining the dose by the strength of the medicine in the bottle and the thirst of the patient. Nothing could possibly be more unscientific! On this basis alone fluoridation should not be considered and attention given to the medication of the individual."

                                                                                                                  Jonathan Forman, BA, MD, FACA, FIICP


"Science should drive the policy but unfortunately, the politicians get in the way."

“If this stuff [silicofluoride] gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing!”
                                                                                                                                           (Dr. William Hirzy
                                                                                           USA Senior Environmental Protection Agency Chemist)        

“Water fluoridation is collapsing. “It’s shocking, but now we have proof that essential whole body health effects studies were never done. The legal community is becoming involved. Harmed groups such as minorities, kidney patients, and parents with children are angry. Water districts are saying, ‘What business do we have medicating people through water?’ And there is growing bipartisan support across the country [USA] for halting fluoridation and conducting Fluoridegate investigations.”

"No decision about me without me."

                                                                                            Chief Judge at the War-Crimes Tribunal in Nuremberg


We the people are putting our elected leaders on notice ... if you abuse your power and do not govern "for the people, by the people and accountable to the people", WE will elect honourable leaders who will.


“Water fluoridation delivers a drug to infants at a level which would be gross malpractice if prescribed by a physician or dentist."

Nagaur district fluorosis consultant Dr Manish Soni said, "We have seen that most of the children have yellowish and weak teeth because of the presence of fluoride in the water being used for drinking purposes.
