The plain truth about Fluoride

The plain truth about Fluoride

Contrary to popular belief, Fluoride is not a medication. It's a natural mineral found in rock, air, soil, plants, and both fresh and sea water. Community water fluoridation began in the 50s in Australia to target tooth decay; one of the most common, painful and expensive health issues facing the country. Tooth decay has halved as a result. However, community concerns continue to be raised about the health implications of fluoride in drinking water. In 2017, the NHMRC conducted an extensive review, and released an open letter outlining the rigour of the review process. It confirmed there are no links between water fluoridation and a host of random illnesses from cancer to Down Syndrome. However, while the evidence is clear, the scepticism continues. Perhaps this is the perfect time to launch a Fluoride educational community campaign?
