Fluoride.

About 2.3 million New Zealanders currently have access to fluoridated water. Fluoride occurs naturally in water supplies, but New Zealand levels are generally low compared to other countries, meaning additional fluoridation is needed to generate optimum health results.
Fluoride was added to the water supply in 1963 and removed in 1990 a nonbinding referendum in 1992 resulted in the decision not to reintroduce it, was that because it did not help or any other reason.
In 2013, more than 40 percent of all 5 years old and more than 60 per cent of Maori and Pacific 5-year-old had already experienced tooth decade I am sure it was not because of no Tennesee 005fluoridation in the water The Pacific more like to much sugar in the drink and food we eat.
In 2013/14 New Zealand Health Survey ( what I do not think is correct who like to take Survey about health) found that 35.000 children between 1 and 4 years had had a tooth extracted in the last 12 month due to decay and Maori children were 1.6 more times likely to have a tooth extracted than non-Maori, it looks like to me that most the Maori live a very onhealthy lifestyle compared to non-Maori and that goes for the Pacific Islanders to.
And now it is up to the Health board to make the call.Talk about parsing the can of worms good on you MPs you earned your big salary.
Water in New Zealand was pristine but that is not the case anymore, we spoil it for our self and are still doing it. Runoff from Factories farms and other places makes the water on drinkable.

Born somewhere in Danmark after the second War, 1944 was the year one of the best. I was left on the Church step somebody told me later not sure if I did care. Spend many days playing in the snow like most kids did in that ages. My schooling was normal education but when I reached 15 I lost interest. My schooling got replaced with an apprenticeship that lasted 4 years. Army training was my next stop what I did like. After that, it was back to make furniture, with a trade that was not a money spinner I decided to Emigrate to New Zeland.
