Dr. Matthews has the backing of many medical and scientific bodies regarding the benefits of fluoridation.
We lived for many years in Orange in the Central West of NSW and grew up on fluoridation, as did our three children. They all have perfect teeth and even though my wife and I are in our 70s we also have all our teeth. As far as health issues go, we are pretty good and have spent less than 8 days in hospital in all our lives, except when my wife gave birth to our children.
Now I would reckon that if there were any major problems it would have manifested itself in the 59 years we have drunk fluoridated water?
So, why is all this expense for a poll tied with our Local Government Elections needed, when the evidence is plain for all to see?
Fluoridation is not only safe, but beneficial for good oral hygiene. We owe it to our kids and grandchildren. Vote for fluoridation.
