Fluoridation in the water of the northern rivers town of Lismore – what a crying shame!
What is it about Australia that causes us not to look at the more advanced nations of the world and to note that most of them have gone back on their decision to fluoridate water? Why must we always have to be so behind the times and not take a look at the broader spectrum?
One of the main components of fluoride is a rat poison. As for people who are unable to look after their teeth, more education in schools is a far better option than poisoning the public. I believe people need to listen to the wise words of Dr Ros Irwin and ignore dumbfounding statements such as ‘if fluoride was a problem all the people of Sydney would be dead’.
What upsets me most is that I thought Lismore was a forward thinking town and what I’m seeing here is backwater nonsense.
– Lismore Council voted not to go ahead with fluoride dosing plants after this letter was written. – Ed
