Huge step forward to ending water fluoridation in Ireland
A further “huge political step” has been achieved at a Dublin City Council (DCC) meeting, for those campaigning to end water fluoridation in Ireland: A tabled motion calling for “the immediate cessation of water fluoridation in Ireland was debated and passed”. DCC is the country’s largest council. It has“adopted an anti fluoride position and further, will be calling on the Government to end Ireland’s mandatory water fluoridation policy with immediate effect”. Laois and Cork County Councils achieved similar results earlier this year, adding to the political strain on the Irish government to end the hugely controversial practice.
Water fluoridation in Israel was halted at the end of August this year, after 70% of the country was fluoridated for approximately 45 years. Water fluoridation is still widespread in the USA, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia, and is added in other countries too, despite strong anti-fluoridation public sentiment.
