I would think that the small group of protesters against the water fluoridation plant at Corndale represent many thousands in the community. Most people cannot take the time to go way out bush and spend a day trying to blockade machinery.
In all my years of working in community health services I came to know what makes a good health promotion program. Water fluoridation is the exact opposite of sensible policy.
Good policy educates and empowers people to make better choices for their own health. Fluoridation simply dumps a chemical into the tap water of everybody. It does nothing for anyone’s health awareness.
In fact fluoridation of your water imposes a great burden upon all of those water consumers who are chemically sensitive to that type of material, and those who wish to have the cleanest water possible for their bathing, drinking and cooking.
