Anti-fluoride looneys put kids through misery

People in hamilton should be made aware of these details that have emerged from Australia about the perils of removing fluoride from drinking water.

The loons that propose this are akin to the same fools who promote homeopathy, they are quacks and should almost be prosecuted.

Young children from parts of northern NSW without fluoridated water are being hospitalised for mass extractions of rotten teeth at nearly twice the rate of other children.

Dentists and paediatricians in Lismore and Ballina say tooth decay among young children is at Third-World levels.

The situation has prompted the Australian Dental Association to urge the federal government to use its influence to force councils swayed by ”fringe groups who peddle fear ? and conspiracy theories” to embrace water fluoridation.

In a statement intended to make water fluoridation an election issue, the association’s federal president, Karin Alexander, said the government needed to make fluoridation of drinking water a condition of funding for all states and territories, particularly NSW and Queensland, or face a rising tide of child dental emergencies.
