Fluoridation/Anti-Fluoridation

This issue was featured in the latest issue of Planet S http://www.planetsmag.com/story.php?id=471. In February Calgary’s city council voted to discontinue fluoridation of city water http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/opinion/whats-calgary-drinking/article1910542/. Similar groups are in Moose Jaw as well.

Backed by “more than half a century of scientific research” the benefits of fluoridation are that “fluoridation reduces the incidence of cavities.”  American Dental Association website. Skeptic North website.

 

Are the “risks” being touted by anti-fluoridation concerned citizens backed by scientific evidence? 

What are the implications should the anti-fluoridation movement be brought to Saskatoon City council and what action are we prepared to take?

Any issues people wish to bring up.

  1. Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride is ineffective at reducing tooth decay and harmful to health. Fluoridation is a huge waste of money.

    If you are truly science-based, you will opposed water fluoridation

  2. The original nanny state crusade. BTW poor kids don’t drink water anyway…
