“We accept there is some evidence of fluoride and tooth enamel strength so we use fluoride toothpaste applied topically so we can spit it out after brushing. We accept fluoride ingested into the body is toxic and accumulates in the body so we oppose the medication of all potable water. If the Hamilton City Council want to provide fluoride to families who can’t afford it provide fluoride tablets free of charge and let the rest of the ratepayers think and act for themselves.”
