Anti-fluoride meeting to be held in Ballymena

A public meeting to highlight concerns about the issue of fluoridation in Northern Ireland will be held in Cafe Couture, Ballymena, on Wednesday, June 20.

Tuesday, 12th June 2012, 11:33 am

The meeting will be adressed by leading anti-fluoridation campaigner, Walter Graham, who has been a long standing opponent of the introduction of the chemical into the public water supply.

Graham argues that fluoride is responsible for mottled, stained or pitted teeth and claims that proposals by Health Minister Edwin Poots to introduce the substance to the water supply in Northern Ireland are ‘madness’.

“We need to say no to this, if we do not let our feelings be known we will all be drinking fluoridated water and there will be no turning back,” he says.

The meeting, which will be held under the auspices of the ‘Northern Ireland Fluoride Free’ group is open to all members of the public and commences at 7pm.

The group wishes to thank the proprietor of Cafe Couture for hosting the evening.
