Government dictates to communities again

The Director-General of Health, Ashley Bloomfield, has advised all local councils with unfluoridated communities that he intends issuing an instruction to fluoridate their water.

However, the last National Government and this Labour…

Revelation shows fluoridation should end

The revelation that fluoridation levels in Wellington and Upper Hutt water supplies has been below, and often well below, “recommended” levels, yet tooth decay rates have been unaffected, confirms that water fluoridation does not reduce tooth decay. Parents can be reassured that the drop in fluoridation levels has not caused their child to have tooth…

Fluoridation decision a disgrace

Fluoridation contributes to Iodine deficiency and related illnesses

A recent review identifies the molecular mechanisms by which fluoride inhibits sodium iodide symporter expression and functionality, which in turn contributes to impaired iodide absorption, diminished iodide-concentrating ability, and iodine deficiency disorders[1]. Overall, studies suggest that fluoride exposure directly affects the bio-availability of iodine in humans. This is particularly important for New Zealanders, as NZ…
