From the cover: “Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the fluoridation of the public water supplies is not a medical/dental issue and never has been despite the fact that millions of sincere and honest people believe that it is, just as millions of people once believed that the world was flat, but that did not make it so. Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the issue is a political/ethical one and that no person or group has the right to promote changes in the bodies of others without their consent. That is the issue and it has nothing whatever to do with the choice of medicines.
Compulsory Mass Medicationmaintains that once fluoridation has been accepted by the nation, we shall have given the State the right to interfere with the functioning and development of people’s bodies without the consent of the owner. Fluoridation is the first real attempt to make people surrender their existing right to think for themselves and to follow the dictates of conscience. If this attempt succeeds there is no knowing where it will end.
The author criticises in detail the British Ministry of Health booklet advocating fluoridation and the false ethics behind it. There are also important chapters giving verbatim extracts from Parliament and Congress and the views of leading medical and religious authorities.”
