Vince Kean, Murwillumbah
Please allow me space to express my absolute outrage at the serial child abusers of Lismore City Council.
As a teacher of 30 years’ experience in the Tweed Valley, I have seen with my own eyes the steady elimination of blackened teeth and embarrassed smiles as fluoride in the water has helped reduce/eliminate tooth decay among the most at-risk members of our supposedly advanced society.
That Lismore Council should pay attention to this idiot fringe group and continue to expose children to the scourge of dental disease is beyond belief.
If the idiot fringe desires to expose their own children to dental disease they should buy a tank.
That they should seek to expose financially or parentally disadvantaged children to dental disease to satisfy some personal inability to understand/accept science disgusts me.
What next? Shall we take out chlorination and filtration? The same crazy arguments apply to these and all other sensible precautions we take to avoid mass threats to our health and wellbeing.
Don’t be mistaken – fluoride is only the first step. The idiot fringe will relentlessly move on to more and more antisocial campaigns.
The anti-fluoride mob were exposed and discredited as knaves and fools years ago. Must we forever fight the battles fairly won yesterday?
The idiot fringe will always be there and will always bleat their inconsequential objections and spread their quasi-intellectual smokescreens.
Surely as an intelligent society we can put these vexatious fools behind us?
