Dr Stephen Child, Chair of NZ Medical Association on fluoridation
Do we believe all of his assurances? No we don't. How long was smoking considered healthy, asbestos, blood letting, mercury fillings. 40% improvement? If it was that obvious! York review max was 14% to a minus dependant on the papers published. And with that possible small improvement you get fluorosis and who would want their children to get that?
If the social group is that deprived why don't they concentrate on improving their status through education to raise them out of the negative non genetic passed on traits?
