12-02-2008 05:03

On several occasions since 1995 victims of the N.S.W. Government Medical Office, HealthQuest, have contacted Amnesty International in London. We have yet to receive a response.

HealthQuest is staffed with psychiatrists and psychologists who are prepared to diagnose for money and power. We hope that this time, Amnesty will finally launch an investigation into our plight.

Re Secretary of State for Health Alan Johnson's release on water fluoridation

06-02-2008 19:59

The DoH refuses to acknowledge extensive evidence that the side effects of fluoridation can be so severe that, were it to be classified as a medicinal product (as EC law demands) then it would instantly be withdrawn from the market. In attempting to remedy a small number of defects in a few children's teeth, this 'remedy' will actually cause damage to all of the teeth of half of the children drinking this quack medicne.
