....Fourteen regional councils in Queensland have opted to remove fluoride from its water supply, but the Mount Isa City Council is yet to decide on whether it will go ahead with, or abandon, fluoridation.
Rockhampton recently became the 14th council to opt against fluoride, after seeking advice from Queensland Health and the Dental Association.
Cloncurry Regional Council is amongst those opting to go without fluoride and Mayor Andrew Daniels said the decision was based on both health and finances.
