Fluoridation of shire’s water for and againstCouldn’t be more for it. Truly about time. Sorry those against, but we really need it to help improve the dental health of the kids in the area.
Fluoride is terrible for our health. I don’t think it has been studied enough and I don’t think studies are conclusive enough for it to be entered into our drinking water. I for one am allergic to it and so is my mother. I’m sure there are many moreout there with the same problems they just mightn’t realise it is fluoride that is responsible. Just brush your teeth and eat better if your main prerogative is dental health.
I just want clean water. Sick of brown, dirty water coming out of my taps
Europe hasbanned it, it is all the chemicals that are causing such a high rate of cancer, dementia etc.We need change and fluoride is not it.
Good dental hygiene and a healthy diet comes before all else. Don’t depend on water alone to solve all the issues.
I’m sure drinking it at the correct controlled amounts isn’t going to hurt. Otherwise it wouldn’t be added to the water.
I’m sorry – the dentist in Merimbula noticed a lower IQ in children who had fluoride in their water? And she judged this how? With an IQ test in her clinic? By “observation”? Bring in evidence. Not observations and thoughts. We are not the only place in the world with fluoride in their water.
As someonewho practiced as a dentist in Bega for 27 years and who worked for one of the people who had the foresight to improve the oral, and dare I say general, health of Bega, byintroducing fluoride into the water supply in 1963, I truly hope fluoridation is introduced into all of the Bega Valley. I, for one, don’t want to go back to the bad old dayswhen I was admitting patients almost weekly to the Bega Hospital for full mouth extractions. These were invariably people from towns and farms outside of Bega.
