New Zealand

1) Peter Dunne and Water Fluoridation legislation 2016 (8.56 mins)

YouTube video

The amendment to the Health Act that made provision for the DGoH to be the sole decider about water fluoridation was first tabled in parliament in 2016 by Peter Dunne.  At that stage fluoridation decision making was going to be shifted to the DHBs but by the time it got passed into law (2021) Labour was in power and the DHBs were gone, so the decision making power went to the Director-General of Health.

Watch this short video of Peter Dunne delivering the 1st Reading in parliament.  He is derogatory about those with concerns.

@ 4.07 “So Mr Speaker I say, for the benefit of the tin-foil hat wearing, UFO-abducted anti-fluoride campaigners out there still peddling the same old pseudoscience myths, there is nothing left to debate on this issue. It is over, science has won.  The government’s website, fluoridefacts.govt.nz provides comprehensive information and responses on community fluoridation, and I encourage anyone interested in this issue to take a look.”

2) Question to Dr Shane Reti 2023 (1.12 mins)

A member of the public asks Dr Reti, Minister of Health, if he is aware of the recent NTP (National Toxicology Programme) report showing fluoride lowers IQ.  [Note Chris Bishop smirking when it is stated that fluoride lowers the IQ of children.]  Dr Reti ‘believes in a different science’ but is unwilling/unable to reference his science.  A religion perhaps?

3) Fluoride on the Brain 2023 (36 mins)

YouTube video

This is a recent documentary made in conjunction with Reality Check Radio and describes the current situation in New Zealand.  It is notable that none of the proponents of fluoridation from the Ministry of Health in NZ were willing to speak and explain ‘their science’ or how the benefits supposedly outweigh the risks.  Dr Robin Whyman, Director NZ Dental Association, did provide written correspondence after the film was completed which is available in the links below the film.

4) Dr Scanlon presentation to New Plymouth Council 2011 (8.16 mins)

YouTube video

Part of Dr Peter Scanlon’s presentation to the New Plymouth District Council’s Tribunal Hearing in 2011. Councillors decided to stop 40 year fluoridation program as a result of the Hearing.  Dr Scalon’s 40 minute presentation played a big part in that decision.

5) Dr Paul Connett interviews Dr John Colquhoun (NZ dentist) 1998 (52.23 mins)

YouTube video

This is an interview during one of Paul Connett’s NZ tours.  In 1971, Dr Colquhoun became Principal Dental Officer for the Auckland Health District and was very pro-fluoridation.  In 1980 he was asked to do a world tour to learn more about water fluoridation to support the implementation of it in NZ.  What he found did not support the implementation of fluoridation and he became an ardent anti-fluoridationist!  Hear him tell his story in his own words.

6) Commentary on The Platform June 2024 (15.20 mins)

Robert Beaglehole from Dental Association of NZ on benefits of water fluoridation.   As an advocate for water fluoridation he has to be commended for actually fronting up to speak about it which is more than our Director General of Health has done, though we don’t agree with his points.  He is also an advocate for a reduction of sugary drinks which in our opinion would have a far more beneficial effect on children’s teeth than mass medication with a neurotoxin.  His comments are followed by commentary from Kane Titchener and Mary Byrne of Fluoride Free New Zealand on the following day. See Coronavirus Plushie X post.

    1. Freedom of choice for all health & dental matters. NO to compulsory fluoride & NO to any other medical matters unless a referendum is taken. Our bodies – our choice.
