UK Against Fluoridation

Peel - Canada


Brampton Guardian
Regional council’s decision to revisit the use of fluoride in Peel Region’s water supply is troubling for nurses in the Peel Chapter of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO).
Mountains of evidence show community water fluoridation is safe and effective in reducing the risk of oral health problems for all people, regardless of age, race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status.
This is extremely important during changing economic times when the cost of dental care can be a barrier for some middle-class Canadians. Research proves poor oral health is linked to diabetes, heart disease, respiratory conditions, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and low birth weight in babies.
Fluoride also acts as a prevention tool against tooth decay – the single most common chronic disease among Canadian children. If fluoride is removed from drinking water, it will have effects on oral health and ultimately the overall well-being of the entire community.
More than 90 countries and international organizations have supported the use of fluoride in water at recommended levels to prevent tooth decay and increase oral health. Water fluoridation is seen as an effective and inexpensive measure that benefits everyone.
We urge Peel regional council to once again support water fluoridation in our municipality so that everyone in our communities, no matter their socio-economic status, can benefit from its positive effects on oral health.

Nothing to worry about then, mountains of evidence.
