Neutral web sites
These web sites are for organisations taking a neutral stance on fluoridation.Second Look: www.slweb.org
Second Look reflects the concerns and position of the NZ Fluoridation Information Service:
"Second Look is a national non-profit initiative (a Tides Center project) that evolved from grassroots frustration with public policies that are so controversial that useful, factual information becomes almost impossible for the public and even professionals to sort out. Second Look's main goal is to facilitate full public and scientific examinations of public policy issues that have become obscured by media treatment (or lack thereof), or by political rhetoric, or because of the inaccessibility of accurate information to relevant constituencies. We seek to connect with science, health, environmental, and academic organizations and professionals."
