    You should give a crap. Fluoride is important for children's teeth.

    Not everywhere has fluoride in the water, and not all people that grow up in those area's have bad teeth.
    QLD only started adding it to the water supply a few years back or so. I grew up there and my teeth are in pretty good condition.

    And better bottled water than soft drink, surely?

    I grew up in Qld, and fluoride is only new to our water supply. I have great teeth.

    And really... we're talking about restricting the access of soft drinks to children. Which, honestly, is worse for your kids teeth? Bottled water or coke?

    I don't agree with it at all.

    With flouride in the water , even if you don't drink tap water your ingesting it through all the food it's washed in or pesticides used plus it's naturally occurring in seafood, dairy , fruit , veg, mineral waters, added in processed foods etc plus most people use fluoride toothpaste - if anything I would take a guess the average child consumes more than their daily recommended intake

    Exactly. I grew up in queensland so did my dh we still live here my dh and I and our children are all cavity and decay free. Dh & I don't even have fillings neither do my children. Fluoride in tap water is not the reason for this.

    Gee I go to work and the thread takes off... Turning to flouride!

    After reading everyone's views I think soft drink should be banned from schools. I don't agree with a price rise or banning it from hospitals or community sports facilities. I disagree that a nannyish state isn't needed... The fact we have such a problem with childhood obesity means a large chunk of parents obviously can't be trusted to make smart choices for their kids. However I think education and advertising restriction is the key.

    As for this plan being the idea of a lobby-type group and not the government perhaps that's the case. Perhaps I Mis-heard the TV this morning... I had just hopped out of the shower. Oops!

    I think it is? It's still sold in high schools though from I can gather.
