Fluoride could be added to almost half of all tap water under Government plans.

Fluoride could be added to 40pc of water
Article in the Telegraph


"Officials want 40 per cent of England's water supply to be fluoridated to reduce high levels of tooth decay.

Dentists leaders believe that adding the chemical to the water supply could radically improve the condition of people's teeth, particularly in deprived areas.

Alan Johnson, the Health Secretary, also backed the introduction of more fluoride into the water supply earlier this year.

Currently only around 10 per cent of all tap water has fluoride added, mainly in parts of the West Midlands and the North East."

I am very much against the addition of fluoride to tap water. Most toothpastes contain fluoride and using a fluoride toothpaste is a better way to get fluoride onto people's teeth than adding fluoride to the water supply.
