A fresh debate will begin this month about putting fluoride in drinking water if a health authority goes ahead with adding it to the supplies.

New row over adding of fluoride to drinking water
article in the Telegraph


"Most residents of Southampton will have no choice but to receive fluoridated tap water if the South Central Strategic Health Authority agrees to the proposal. Its board is to make a decision on Thursday February 26 following a consultation.

While many health experts argue that adding fluoride will help improve children's teeth, critics believe it is a coercive form of "mass medication" with unproven benefits.

If fluoride is added it will increase the concentration of the chemical in Southampton's water twelvefold, from 0.08 parts per million (ppm) to one ppm."

Personally, I'm against adding fluoride to the drinking water supply.
