How can our local councils make the decision to use fluoride in our water supply when, across the world, this has been shown to be of little or no benefit, and worse, harmful to the environment and the population?

It is critically important to inform ourselves and not rely on the biased information provided by organisations who have a vested interest in the decisions made. Here is a link to the UNICEF position on fluoridation – http://www.nofluoride.com/Unicef_fluor.cfm.

Good on Byron Shire for saying No. Al Oshlack needs our support and we need to stop this ignorant and dangerous initiative before it is too late.

Muriel Kinson, Lismore

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
