Cessation of Fluoridation of Irish Drinking Water

Cessation of Fluoridation of Irish Drinking Water
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

(a) The suggested optimal fluoride concentration of 1 mg per litre is very close to the dose with which long term detrimental effects in people cannot be excluded. . . the limit value in drinking water cannot be justified in view of different habits and therefore differing consumption of drinking water and the uncontrolled intake of fluorides from other sources. The safety of a lifelong accumulation of fluoride in the human body as a result of increased intake is disputed in medical science throughout the world. German Technical & Scientific Association

(b) Fluoridation of our water supply is being continued without proper scientific investigation or consultation of the people.

(c) Despite- as in Germany above- being discontinued in most EU countries, our Government, continues to ignore scientifically based engagement with those pushing for cessation, such as at www.enviro.ie and www.thegirlagainstfluoride.com

(d) Dentists only, comprise the Irish Governments 'expert body' on fluoridation, which is manifestly a forensic medical and toxicologists problem, not dental.

(e) History continues to show us that quasi-government organisations are vulnerable to groupthink and by extension, to commercial and industrial lobbying.
