EU ambassadors in Ireland warned that tap water is not safe for baby bottles

submit to reddit

EU ambassadors in Dublin have been informed that their nationals living in Ireland should not make up baby bottles with tap water. Following an Open Letter (1) to the European Commission by leading Dutch paediatrician, Dr Gavin ten Tusscher and others associated with Amsterdam University and the NGO Ecobaby, EU diplomacies in Dublin have been alerted to the risks from tap water in Ireland which contains untrialled, falsified medicinal products (fluorosilicates) that are unsafe for bottle-fed babies. The letter to EU diplomatic missions from Irish campaigner Robert Pocock is attached (2).

Dr ten Tusscher has written to EU Commissioner John Dalli suggesting that the same reasoning for a recent directive banning bisphenol A in baby bottles must now be also applied to tap water containing untrialled and unauthorized fluorosilicates whose active pharmaceutical ingredients do not meet mandatory manufacturing quality standards.

The recently passed Directive 2011/8/EU banning bisphenol A in baby bottles was necessary, said EU Commissioner Dalli, since bottle-fed babies are at special risk because a) baby bottles are their only source of nutrition

b) no official warnings are given to parents about the risks and

c) no product labels advise parents of these risks.

Since exactly similar risks to babies from bisphenol A apply to fluorosilicates in formula made up with tap water, a similar directive is now necessary to protect vulnerable infants, argued the Dutch paediatric doctors.

“What these European doctors have done is expose the lax regulations applying to fake medicinal products in Ireland. Consumers and especially children in the rest of Europe are protected from these falsified and prohibited medicines but not in Ireland” said Irish Stop Fluoridation Campaigner, Robert Pocock.

With Commissioner Dalli hailing the bisphenol A ban as a victory for consumer health, it now remains to be seen if he will continue to allow rogue states like Ireland to flout pan-European measures designed to protect consumers, especially the most vulnerable.

(2) 26th May 2011 Letter to EU Ambassadors in Ireland below:

To all European Union Ambassadors in Ireland.

Dear Ambassador,

EU nationals at health risk from Irish tap water.

While EU nationals are nominally protected from unsafe medicines and food in Europe by means of pan-European safety regulation, this does not apply in Ireland where clinically untrialled and unauthorized fluorosilicates are added to most public drinking water under a practice prohibited in other Member States.

We wish to alert you to the unique risks from what are in fact falsified medicines present in Irish tap water and to which many of your nationals in Ireland may be exposed, in particular the risks to those who may be bottle-feeding their babies.

The Open Letter from leading Dutch paediatrician Dr ten Tusscher supported by the NGO Ecobaby to EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy John Dalli, has called for urgent measures to protect bottle-fed babies from unsafe fluorosilicates in drinking water, for the very same reasons recently quoted by Commissioner Dalli in the new Directive 2011/8/EU banning bisphenol A in baby bottles (http://www.ecobaby.nl/ )

In the meantime and since the Irish government declines to issue warnings about these falsified medicines either to Irish or other EU nationals living here, you may wish to alert your fellow nationals to the risks. In particular you might advise parents of newborns not to use Irish tap water to make up infant formula because it leads to fluoride over-dosing.

Every third Irish teenager now has dental fluorosis or permanent disfigurement of their teeth – pictures in the link below * and the fluorosis risk commences at birth.

    /pro gov mode ON/ What… Fine Gael PROMISED something? Are you SURE?? You MUST have misread that dear Joe…. Fine Gael might have mentioned the issue but not that they promised anything /pro gov mode OFF/

    Unauthorised stuff in the Irish water just makes sure we will all be numb and mindless ‘yes voters’
    It is not in the governments interest to make the public aware of their own ongoing f**kups.
    Keep in mind that though the names and faces have changed, the same force behind the government is still in place.
    They are only interested in their own health (personal as well as economical) And they put the pawn Enda Kenny in the spotlight with a “Am am so appalled” speech to hit on the obvious religious abusers, who accidently are STILL not arrested and locked away. And never will be, even though they should….

    As for the water: since all this illegal stuff in there is costing them some money they have now decided to make us PAY for their poison.

    The government is caring SO MUCH for its pocket. No. Strike that. Should read country…

  3. This is good progress. We should let all potential visitors to Ireland know that our tap water contains poison and is not safe to drink. We should also alert consumers globally that Irish-made food and drink products may contain poison fluoride. By targeting two of our key industries, tourism and food/drink, we can punish the Government in the only place that matters – their sinking tax take – until the fluoride is removed from the water supply.

  5. ….sinister echoes here of the document entitled “protocols of The Elders of Zion”

    It is extremely serious and alarming

    Does a methodology exist in which ancient leaking water pipes and systems can be cleared of fluoride?

    I very much doubt it

    Though the ethical agenda of the issuing body is dubious and questionable, the content is not.
    the information regarding the dangers of mass fluoridation is well known but long suppressed and witheld from public scrutiny, there exists a legal minefield here…possibly a matter for International Courts of Human Rights.
    It is regrettable that the masses clearly are now well sedated to the extent that they are willing to pay to become poisoned, by order of government.
    Let us never forget the words of Victor Frankyl ‘ the last of the human freedoms is the freedom to choose our responses in any given situation… world economies have collapsed for less sinister agendas

    I Made Filters to Stick on Taps and it is Brilliants all the Scale Stays in Filter Net around My Tap, and It Catches any Little Bugger that Come out of The Tap, Make a Mesh and Put a Ring Attached to It and Stick it under your tap, using a grip and tightened and its safe to say that the flouride cant get into your water but goes straight into the mesh, wash and change daily

    The following are some good sources of information on fluoride and artificial water fluoridation: the Fluoride Action Network, Declan Waugh’s work, the books The Case Against Fluoride and The Fluoride Deception, the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards, and the peer-reviewed journal Fluoride.

    The forced-fluoridation experiment is medical malpractice on an industrial scale. Fluoridation chemicals are the only medications which are delivered via public water supplies. Medicating public water supplies with any chemical violates the human rights and medical ethics principle of informed consent to medical treatment, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since the fluoride dose received from water and other sources is uncontrolled, and is environmentally irresponsible because the vast majority of tap water is not ingested, so the environmental load is vastly greater than it needs to be. Medicating public water supplies means that politicians are subjecting everyone to treatment which no doctor can legally impose on anyone, and is surely the most ham-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

    Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially egregious, because fluoride is a cumulative poison with a half life in the body of around 20 years, there was no good quality scientific research which indicated that forced-fluoridation was anything but harmful and useless in the 1940s and there still isn’t any, the best quality scientific research which has been conducted indicates that forced-fluoridation is in fact both harmful and useless, the fluoridation chemicals which are used are industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced-fluoridation experiment is immoral, illegal, irrational, archaic, pseudoscientific, and not worth the risk.
