Moncton fluoridation questions
The five year moratorium on fluoride in Moncton’s water supply ends at the end of the year.
Dentists say the moratorium was a bad idea. They have seen a dramatic increase in tooth decay, especially among young children, since fluoride use ended in 2011.
Opponents of flouride say not enough is known about health risks from long term use. The Chief Medical Officer of Health and the New Brunswick Dental Society both support fluoridation saying its benefits are well documented.
