I am nonplussed by the debate in northern NSW concerning the fluoridation of water.

Four decades ago, at least, this debate took place in Melbourne and the issue was resolved at that time by the eventual fluoridation of the water supply, with no ill-effects whatsoever.

And children’s teeth benefited immensely.

The many objections to fluoridation were baseless, including some that were clearly within the realms of conspiracy theory.

Trust the science.

  1. The fluorides put in water supply are registered psychotrophic drugs. Fluoride in the water supply is an unregulated administering of a registered drug, which is illegal.
    Trevor Robertson sounds frightened and intimidated to parrot out such a standard, baseless, spin cliche re fluoride. Its frightening to know that our ‘governments’ are acting like the enemy of the people when they poison our food, water, land and air, but we have to face up to it and deal with that reality if we are to make the world a better place.
