Welcome and thanks for visiting the Fluoride Free Towns Campaign website.

This project was set up in early 2014 to assist those around the country looking to see Ireland’s position in relation to the policy of Community Water Fluoridation brought in line with European precedent where not one other EU State[1] currently enforces a national mandatory water fluoridation policy upon her citizens.

With many questions hanging over the policy, some 40%[2][3] of the population now suffering from dental fluorosis which contravenes conditions attached to the legislation by the Irish High Court and Supreme Court[4] (Ryan v Attorney General 1964) as well as serious concerns for the safety of the unborn caused by the maternal fluoride intake crossing the placenta, the general public are advised to avoid all systemic exposure to fluoride and to create awareness of the issue with your own families, friends and communities.

In 2014 and 2015, half the country’s regional Council’s passed motions calling on the Government to scrap Water Fluoridation to no avail yet Fine Gael and Fianna Fail, the two main parties behind the policy have at one time or another expressed serious concerns over the policy where the former promised to reverse the legislation if elected to power yet the policy still continues to this day.  FG and FF appear to be suffering from an undocumented fluoride side effect becoming known as the political u-turn which is quickly diagnosed once a political party is in Government ….

Fluoride Free Towns wishes to thank all those who visit this website and also encourages members of the public or press representatives to contact us if any references of clarification is required to substantiate any of the claims made on this website.  Like any contentious public issue, FFT fully accepts and acknowledges all parties submitting and disseminating authoritative position statements to the public should be fully accountable and open to question.  Unfortunately, those authorities with overall responsibility and oversight for the policy in Ireland do not share this same viewpoint.

 

Please feel free to browse this website for further information regarding oversight and implementation of the policy as well as online projects which you can follow to connect with others who are similarly concerned over the impacts fluoridation is having on our Nation.
