UK Against Fluoridation

Does fluoride have lessons for the vaccine debate?

......And a big lesson from what the fluoride crowd is to stick to the facts. The American Dental Association provides a nice FAQ on its website that does not entertain the more out-there claims made by some who still argue against putting fluoride in the water supply. Instead, it just presents the facts, including this one:
Water fluoridation is safe, effective and healthy. Seventy years of research, thousands of studies and the experience of more than 210 million Americans tell us that water fluoridation is effective in preventing cavities and is safe for children and adults.
Something very similar could be said about vaccines, and those who want to see more children and adults vaccinated against a range of diseases would do well to take a similar tack.
Does he really believe that there are no negative downsides to either vaccines or fluoridation?
