and what's worse chances are they won't accept this either.

think of how fast the internet in Outram would be if they spent the $50M on that instead

My preference has always been to brush my teeth properly and leave things like water as pure and natural as possible.  Never really understood why I need to have chemicals in my water just because other people eat too much candy or other such things.

Well, you could always buy bottled water if it bothers you enough.

Because it benefits you too, even if you do brush your teeth properly? Natural doesn't necessarily mean 'better for you.' Also, and not to belabour the point, but pure water isn't natural.

Why didn't someone just suggest dunking a pink quartz crystal in the glass of the water to use it's aligned magnetic ions to absorb the negative energy charges caused by the fluoride, thereby gently and naturally purifying it? They totally would have believed that, and then normal people could have gotten on with their lives. Even if they gave out the crystals for free to anyone who wanted them, it still would been a much smaller waste of taxpayer money.

Fluoride might be safe, but Colgate Total probably isn't by the looks! Dodgy.

My favourite was the dramas in Hamilton.  At a referendum, 66% voted for flouridation (even when half their councillors voted against it), but the New Health group tried to use all sorts of legal avenues to block it being reintroduced.  Surely if the people want it, give it to them?
