Another Queensland council joins the anti-fluoride era
THE Fraser Coast Regional Council has become the latest Queensland council to take up the Liberal National Party Queensland Government's offer to opt out of the program.
The Fraser Coast council joins Cairns, Bundaberg, Tablelands, Burdekin and Doomadgee in opting out of fluoride water.
Debate has been raging since late last year when the Newman Government handed councils the power to opt in or out of fluoridation, after its addition to local water supplies was mandated by the former government.
Under the reforms, councils are responsible for meeting all costs associated with any decision.
