THE DEATH OF GLEN WALKER, AUSTRALIAN FLUORIDATION NEWS.

We regret to report the death of Glen Walker on June 30th, 2009.

Glen was a dyed-in-the-wool trooper, a staunch ally of the anti-fluoridation movement and a man without compromise. If there was something that was wrong, it was wrong. No middle ground, no grey areas, just the undiluted truth.

Glen's loss will be felt keenly by all of those who knew him, not only for his impressive and detailed work on the subject of fluoridation, but more importantly for the strength of his character. In fact, he was more than a soldier in the field of battle, he was worthy of being a 5-Star General. The world is a poorer place without you in it, Glen.

New Labour's idea of a free vote (quote from the Commons Hansard, 10th Nov 2003):

Mr. Wiggin: "On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I seek your guidance about whether a free vote means that the Government Chief Whip should herd her supporters into the *No Lobby."

Mr. Deputy Speaker: "I must tell the hon. Gentleman that that is not a matter in which the Chair becomes involved in any way." (*'No Lobby' - to block opposition to further fluoridation).

SPECIAL ISSUES:

 Layman's guide  A simple overview of fluorides and water fluoridation. Learn the basics and understand the critical issues.

 The Other Side of the Coin  In November 2003, The House of Commons voted by 284-181 to provide for the extension of fluoridation. Their reasons were based upon bad science, bad evidence and bad principles. Here are the facts some MPs are ignoring.

 The Big Issue  Fluorosed teeth counted as "sound and present" in UK dental health surveys? Also see our Press Release of October 2006.

 Fluoridated milk  Children being fed milk containing the same type of fluoride used to manufacture nerve gas, rat and cockroach poison?

 Fluoride: A 'rough passage'?  Pictures of an intestine damaged by fluoride.

 Propaganda  Fluoridation  cannot survive without unscientific claims being made about it's safety & effectiveness.

 Yahoo! Groups:  "The intention of this site is for FLUORIDE POISONED persons to share their experiences and support."

 APPGAF  The All Party Parliamentary Group Against Fluoridation. The All-Party Group is the focus within Westminster for opposition to the policy of water fluoridation. MP's and Peers meet regularly to discuss developments, and to organise meetings with Ministers and other parties.

"Fluoride has several mechanisms of toxicity. Ingested fluoride initially acts locally on the intestinal mucosa. It can form hydrofluoric acid in the stomach, which leads to GI irritation or corrosive effects. Following ingestion, the GI tract is the earliest and most commonly affected organ system.

Once absorbed, fluoride binds calcium ions and may lead to hypocalcemia. 

> Fluoride has direct cytotoxic effects and interferes with a number of enzyme systems; it disrupts oxidative phosphorylation, glycolysis, coagulation, and neurotransmission (by binding calcium).

> Fluoride inhibits Na+/K+ -ATPase, which may lead to hyperkalemia by extracellular release of potassium. 

> Fluoride inhibits acetylcholinesterase, which may be partly responsible for hypersalivation, vomiting, and diarrhea (cholinergic signs). Seizures may result from both hypomagnesemia and hypocalcemia. 

Severe fluoride toxicity will result in multiorgan failure. Central vasomotor depression as well as direct cardiotoxicity also may occur. Death usually results from respiratory paralysis, dysrhythmia, or cardiac failure."
