The Brisbane Lord Mayor's Taskforce on Fluoridation Findings
Some of the reasons for Brisbane’s resistance to fluoridation
dental decay rates have been falling for three decades in both fluoridated and unfluoridated communities.
there was a lack of contemporary dental evidence on the scale of the problem in Brisbane, particularly in relation to adults.
research evidence showed the complexity of trying to separately identify the benefits of water fluoridation alone
dental decay rates amongst children in Queensland appear to be similar to the Australian average
The evidence relating to what constituted a safe or a toxic dose of fluoride was uncertain and confusing. A majority of Taskforce members were concerned that the margin of safety between a safe and toxic dose may not be sufficiently wide.
