Australian Fluoridation News
Fluoridation News is for people willing to think for
themselves, without the common ad nauseum
bombardment by commercial gobbledygook sorcerers,
acting as scientific salesmen, together with ego
hoppers, going about their master's business of
fluoride and fluoridation promotion that requires
more and more necessary protection from public
knowledge. The Australian Fluoridation News is
published with factual fluoridation data that
carries a twin message. It presents information
which is the basis of knowledge without which
everyone will suffer the indignities, rorts and
pharmacological misinformation about fluoridation as
presented to the public by the Government and those
representing the International Fluoridation Lobby."
About author and
publisher Glen Walker
Glen Walker is the
inspiration behind the AFN. What makes Glen such an
incredible fellow is that he reached the age of 89
in 2003. How many other people of his age can claim
to put in the work rate that Glen does?
Many accolades could
be poured upon Glen, but I would like to quote from
one of his books: Fluoridation, Poison on Tap.
"About the Author
Glen S. R. Walker, F.I.M.F., E.M.E.C.S., M.A.E.S.,
is Chairman of the Freedom From Fluoridation
Federation of Australia, and of the
Anti-Fluoridation Association of Victoria.
His experience in technical and scientific
organisations throughout the world has been
In 1968 he was the first Australian to be made a
Fellow of the Institute of Metal Finishing,
London, an international society entry into which
is controlled by technical and scientific
examination, and his Fellowship was awarded for
his work in that field which has received
He is also an Emeritus Member of the
Electrochemical Society, U.S.A. having been a
member for over forty years.
He has represented Australia many times at
international scientific conferences. His business
and scientific interests took him overseas almost
every year, where he studied developments in
several fields of industry.
During World War II, he acted as a consultant to
the Australian Army, Navy and Air Force, the
American Air Force, Government Ordinance
Factories, and sub-contractors to the Ministry of
He was a member of a Sub-Committee of the Wartime
Ministry of Munitions which controlled the use and
supply of strategic metals. He was also a partner
in a chemical company that manufactured special
chemicals war-time use.
He has written many papers for local and overseas
After the war he was the proprietor of a chemical
laboratory which held a highest qualification in
Australia - registration by the N.A.T.A. (National
Association of Testing Authorities).
The author and the staff of this laboratory
pioneered the determination trace impurities in
electrolytes, using the Atomic Absorption
Spectrophotometer which was invented by the
C.S.I.R.O. This is now universally used throughout
Glen Walker also held a number of patents in the
field of metal finishing.
The Author's experience with fluorides, cover over
forty years from when the chemical was first used
in electrochemical formulations, and remembers the
hazards and dangers in using fluoride chemicals,
and the extreme caution required in handling them.
Long before his active interest in fluoridation,
he was "a voice in the wilderness" being an early
advocate for the control of industrial pollution.
In 1969 he gave evidence before an Australian
Government Senate Select Committee, and offered
his services to establish a policy from which
industry would not only be encouraged, but made
aware of the necessity, availability and economy
of proper effluent treatment plants. He studied
proven processes in the U.S.A. and obtained
manufacturing rights for Australia.
Further representation to the Federal and State
Governments and its departments, resulted in
Is it any wonder he looked upon the Victorian
Compulsory Fluoridation Act of 1973 with interest
and great concern? Instead of industrial chemical
waste disposal units, the Government now makes
every person in Victoria a walking waste disposal
unit for a trade waste."

FLUORIDATION FACTS. DID YOU KNOW THAT -
scientifically advanced and health conscious countries such as Denmark,
Finland, France. Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden have
totally rejected fluoridation?
there has never been a scientific study in Australia or the world to prove
the safety of fluoridation?
no studies in Australia to prove fluoridation perfectly safe for all
fluoride is a poison that accumulates in your body and one-third of a
teaspoonful of sodium fluoride is estimated to be a lethal dose?
there has been no clinical research which proves fluoride stops dental
caries, only clever and persistent propaganda?
young children should never use fluoridated toothpaste because they have
no control over the amount swallowed? In fact many children eat the stuff
because it is enticingly flavoured.
fluoridated toothpaste can contain up to 1500 p.p.m. of fluoride? There is
enough in one tube to kill a child!
nature knows best? There is virtually no fluoride in mothers' milk? A
bottle-fed baby on formula food reconstituted with fluoridated water,
receives 700% above N.H. and M.R.C. and W.H.O. suggested maximum safe
daily intake of fluoride for babies. Many world medical scientists
consider the fluoride intake should be zero.
the Tasmanian Royal Commission 1968 and the Victorian Inquiry 1980
estimated 10% of children in fluoridated populations will suffer dental
fluorosis, i.e. mottled teeth. The latest research shows 48%.
the British Medical Research Council and the American Medical Association
and the N.H. and M.R.C. state that dental fluorosis is the first sign of
chronic fluoride poisoning? Why is this appalling medical condition
there were over 100 Statutory Declarations claiming harm from
fluoridation, some with Doctors' Certificates, sent to the Victorian
Inquiry through our Association. Not one person was contacted or examined
by the Government Committee and no mention was made in the Report so that
the Premier was able to announce that "no harm was reported"!!!
