The “goodness” of fluoride in the water, the perpetual government spin.

By the late 1980s, approximately 90 percent of the population of NSW had access to fluoridated water. In a recent e-mail to me, Desley Boyle, the MP for Cairns (North Queensland) and some of her government advisers told me how good the teeth were in NSW because of water fluoridation.

"Epidemic of child tooth decay in NSW." An article in the “Daily Telegraph” 9.1.010 put a different light on the above claims. Click on this link to read the article. – Werner

Interesting that this article states "Children who live in communities without fluoride in their tap water, Aboriginal children and children from lower socio-economic areas are much more likely to show early signs of decay, according to NSW Health."
