  • New Zealand city board votes for fluoridation despite referendum vote (New Zealand Herald, February 24)
    Commentary:  A newspaper columnist discusses a local government action to proceed with drinking water fluoridation in the face of votes by a small portion of the population opposing it.   Polls taken in the area indicate the majority of persons are ignorant, to use the writer's term, of the issue and cites polls that show most do not even know whether the water is currently fluoridated.  The use of referenda to decide public health issues is questioned.
