We need medical advice

We are every day over-exposed to fluoride if we brush our teeth twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste and drink fluoridated Irish water.

Most fluoridated toothpastes contain the warning, ‘In case of intake of fluoride from other sources consult a dentist or doctor.’ This means that all of us, including the TDs who rejected a recent Bill proposing a prohibition on adding fluoride to the Irish water supply, need to seek medical advice.
