Great news for a Sunday morning
From Newstalk ZB
Ashburton residents have voted against reintroducing fluoride to the town’s water supply. The results of a postal referendum on the issue have come out this afternoon.
Around 7,500 people took part in the vote, opting by a majority of more than 700 for the status quo. The council stopped adding fluoride to the water supply in 2002.
The Canterbury District Health Board says it is disappointed at the decision, saying fluoridation is the safest way to reduce tooth decay.
In a spirited campaign against the Health Board’s taxpayer funded propaganda, a small group of activists carried the day.
It is no secret that the Health Department wants to fluoridate the entire country if it can. This campaign should have been a sitter for the pro-fluoride lobby, but they were beaten by a better team.
Congratulations Don, Peter and all who chipped in. Truly a kick in the (pearly white) teeth for the health nazis.
