The NSW state government is pressuring local government to fluoridate drinking water supplies. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/sep/18/health-skinner-fluoride-nsw-councils?CMP=twt_fbo The question of the therapeutic benefits of fluoridation of drinking water is certainly controversial. We all make up our own minds to what is true. Some years ago I read about this new radical idea that we should all take responsibility for our own health. This is taking personal responsibility to a new level. As a matter of civil liberties why not let those who want fluoride in their drinking water buy fluoride tablets to dissolve in their drinking water. As so many people have rain water tanks here will never be a total fluoridation of drinking water.
