To back up this opinion, Waikato DHB recently established a webpage with strong evidence that fluoride in drinking water is a safe, effective and affordable way to reduce tooth decay. The Waikato District Health Board answers common questions about fluoride in drinking water, summarises important facts in a short video by the Ministry of Health and offers access to an information-
With all this information, water fluoridation would really seem to be a ‘no brainer’ and Dr Dumble is urging the public to use the webpage to remain informed about this sometimes polarising debate. Growing cynicism about the excessive cost of bottled water, combined with increasing concern over water safety and the environmental impact caused by manufacturing and drinking bottled water have made the installation of a home water filter increasingly popular. Add to this the fact that the popular brands of bottled water remove all traces of fluoride from their water.
This is where a Just Water Home Filter system comes in as they leave the fluoride in the water, while producing great tasting water straight from the tap. A filtered water system in the home eliminates the need to buy expensive bottled water, while at the same time providing fluoridated water which can only be of benefit to those drinking it. This is borne out by the number of international, national and local health organisations which support fluoridation, including the Royal Society of New Zealand, the New Zealand Ministry of Health, the New Zealand Children’s Commissioner, the New Zealand Medical Association, the New Zealand Cancer Society and the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society.
With this overwhelming evidence in favour of fluoride in water, the installation of a Just Water Home Filter system is looking more and more to be the favourable option. To access more information about Just Water Home Filter systems, go to their website at http://www.justwater.co.nz/
