Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor Anthony Connaghton outside City Hall discussing his motion to end fluoridation in Dublin Water ahead of the council’s monthly meeting last night.
The motion was carried.
Cllr Connaghton sez:
“My motion seeking to end water fluoridation in Ireland was approved at Dublin City Council last night. 98% of Europe has rejected the practice of water fluoridation and it was banned in Holland in 1976. Numerous studies worldwide have indicated potential harm to human health from adding fluoride to our drinking water. Why are we taking this risk when dental health can be dealt with by conventional methods?”
