Chemical better left out of water

Sir, – It grieves me to read that the Tumut Council has put fluoride in the town water supply. Particularly when many Councils, notably in Queensland, are de-fluoridating the water supply in their respective areas. Check this out on computer web sites.

With so much information available now to make informed decisions, particularly the side effects of various chemicals on the body, it appals me that the council would act so carelessly, with little consideration for the people they represent.

Just check out the effects of fluoride on the Pineal Gland. Most disturbing.

Yours etc
