Rebuttal

Point #1: “Doctor Brendan White from the far north coast division of the NSW Dental Association said an independent study found two-thirds of the community supports fluoridation.”

Water fluoridation, by its very nature, denies individuals the right to informed consent. As opposed to agents like chlorine, which are used to treat the water and make it safe to drink, fluoride is added to water with the express intent of treating people via the water.
