The NHMRC recommends three compounds for fluoridating drinking water: Sodium fluoride (NaF); sodium fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6); and fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) [1].

The most common chemical used is fluorosilicic acid, which is a Schedule 7 poison [2]. According to the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons, Schedule 7 poisons are:

“Substances and preparations that: Have high to extremely high toxicity; can cause death or severe injury at low exposures; require special precautions in their manufacture, handling, or use; may require special regulations restricting their availability, possession or use; and are too hazardous for domestic use, or use by untrained persons” [3].

    It’s interesting to note that under the Health (Fluoridation) Act 1973 Act No. 8506/1973 it states:

    4. Protection from rights of action
    No person has any right of action against—
    (a) a water supply authority; or
    (b) a member of a water supply authority; or
    (c) a person acting under the direction of a water
    supply authority; or
    (d) a person acting on behalf of a water supply
    authority under a contract made between that
    authority and the person—
    in respect of anything done in regard to the
    fluoridation of a public water supply in
    accordance with the provisions of this Act.
