Fluoridation of Public Water Supply

The Irish government is fluoridating our piped public drinking water Supply at 0.6-0.8 milligrams of fluoride per liter (mg/L) for health reasons. In Europe, only Ireland (73%), Poland (1%), Serbia (3%), Spain (11%), and the U.K. (11%) fluoridate their water.  Most developed countries, including Japan and 97% of the western European population, do not consume fluoridated water. Ireland remains the only country within the European region with a legislative mandatory policy requiring the fluoridation of all public water supplies.1 Ireland currently spends €4.8 million annually on this process.2
The Department of Health and Children and their appointed board of experts “The Irish Expert Body On Fluorides’ and Health” 3 support the process of fluoridation of our piped drinking water supply on the basis that it prevents tooth decay without any adverse effects to human health -- which is widely disputed by many experts across the globe. Ireland began in 1964 after the introduction of the “Fluoridation Waters Supply Acts” in 1960.
