Fluoride Free New Zealand supporters are professionals and ordinary citizens who are passionate about the health of our families and our community. We’re volunteers, working hard to get the best quality water possible for New Zealanders and to live up to our clean, green reputation. Fluoride is now known to be neurotoxic and can be harmful at certain levels. The US National Toxicology Program is currently undertaking a review of all studies where fluoride has been shown to harm the brain to try to ascertain what dose this harm occurs. They are also embarking on their own animal studies. For this reason, among others, we believe fluoridation chemicals have no place in our water.(see video footage of committee meeting See video footage here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lytzqSyGV2E.)

Fluoride Free New Zealand's involvement (page creator)

The Government is proposing to shift responsibility from the local councils to the District Health Boards. We are concerned that this will result in mandatory fluoridation as the DHBs usually carry out MoH policy.

Therefore, all currently nonfluoridated areas such as:

Kaikohe

Kaitaia

KeriKeri

Whangarei

Leigh

Warkworth

Huia

Wellsford

Onehunga

Waiuku

Tuakau

Cambridge

Morrinsville

Matamata

Te Aroha

Pokeno

Putaruru

Tauranga

Coromandel Town

Whanganui

New Plymouth

Marton

Bulls

Samson

Otaki

Levin

Waipukurau

Napier

Paekakariki

Petone

Nelson

Blehneim

Motueka

Greymouth

Hamner

Hokitiki

Queenstown

Kaikoura

Christchurch

Ashburton

Gore

and many more may likely to be fluoridated in the near future. .

Systematic Literature Review on the Effects of Fluoride on Learning and Memory in Animal Studies  11 August 2016

CONCLUSION: Very few studies assessed learning and memory effects in experimental animals (rats and mice) at exposure levels near 0.7 parts per million, the recommended level for community water fluoridation in the United States. At concentrations higher than 0.7 parts per million, this systematic review found a low to moderate level-of -evidence that suggests adverse effects on learning and memory in animal exposed to fluoride. The evidence is strongest (moderate level-of evidence) in animals exposed as adults and weaker (low level-of-evidence) in animals exposed during development. Confidence in these findings was reduced primarily based on potential confounding of the learning and memory assessments by deficits in motor function or fear and risk of bias limitations. Additional research is needed, in particular to address potential effects on learning and memory following exposure during development to fluoride at levels nearer to 0.7 parts per million. NTP is conducting laboratory studies in rodents to fill data gaps identified by this systematic review of the animal studies. The findings from those studies will be included in a future systematic review to evaluate potential neurobehavioral effects from exposure to fluoride during development with consideration of human, experimental animal and mechanistic data.
