Template Letter to send to your mayor and councillors
Dear Mayor and councillors
I am aware that the Director General of Health (DG) has recently sent a Directive to our council to start fluoridation. This is against the wishes of many people in this community. Please stand up for our community as you have been elected to do.
- Fluoride is now well established as a neurotoxic even at the levels present in fluoridated water.
- The legislation that enables the DG to direct councils does not require the DG to consider any potential adverse health effects.
- Fluoridation chemicals are scrubbed from the chimneys of the phosphate fertilizer industry and contain traces of lead, arsenic, mercury and sometimes even uranium
- Most countries in the world, including 97% of Europe, do NOT fluoridate their water supply
- In 2018 the New Zealand Supreme Court ruled that “fluoridation is compulsory medical treatment”
- The research the DG cites in making his decision does not support his claims:
- The Cochrane Review of 2015 found most studies had been carried out before 1975 and may not be relevant today with the widespread use of fluoridated toothpaste
- The Sapere Report uses data from 2008 is out of date and had too little data to make any firm conclusions
- The New Zealand School Dental Statistics shows there is no discernible difference in decay rates between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas.
