You’ve all witnessed it countless times before: Anti-fluoridationists in brutal head-to-head battle with pro-fluoridationists, over the issues of ‘mass medication’ and ‘informed consent’ to medication.
The anti-fluoridationists claim that water fluoridation constitutes mass medication and inherently violates the principle of individual informed consent to medication.
In return, the pro-fluoridationists argue that informed consent does not apply in the case of water fluoridation, because fluoride is not a drug or medication.
The anti-fluoridationists vehemently maintain that fluoride is a medication. Neither side will surrender an inch, ever. It’s the ultimate stalemate.
