As an adjunct to The Fire Water Project, this film (via two people’s experience in trying to avoid fluoride exposure) has been made to draw attention to the fact that citizens in artificially fluoridated nations, such as Australia and the United States, are being exposed to fluoridated water without any attempt by health authorities to monitor for potential side-effects.
According to the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), and the US National Research Council (NRC), hypersensitivity reactions to fluoridated water may be occurring within the general population. In light of this medically plausible possibility, both these organisations have called for scientific studies to gather reliable data on this issue.
In 1991, the NHMRC stated: “It is desirable to explore in a rigorous fashion the vague constellation of symptoms which are claimed to result from ingestion of fluoridated water can be shown to be reproducibly developed in these “susceptible” individuals. These claims are being made with sufficient frequency to justify well-designed studies which can properly control for subject and observer bias.”
In 2006, the NRC reiterated: “Epidemiologic studies should be carried out to determine whether there is a higher prevalence of hypersensitivity reactions in areas where there is elevated fluoride in the drinking water. If evidence is found, hypersensitive subjects could then be selected to test, by means of double-blinded randomized clinical trials, which fluoride chemicals can cause hypersensitivity. In addition, studies could be conducted to determine what percentage of immunocompromised subjects have adverse reactions when exposed to fluoride in the range of 1-4 mg/L in drinking water.”
For viewers who wish to learn more about the issue of potential hypersensitivity, Sapphire Eyes Productions recommends: ‘The Case Against Fluoride’ by Dr. Paul Connett, Dr. James Beck, and Dr. Spedding Micklem — available from Chelsea Green Publishing (2010, ISBN: 9781603582872).
