New Zealand - appeal to take note of advice for babies overdosing.

US Warns About Fluoride And Babies
7:34 am, 13 Dec 2006
A Northland dentist says it would be negligent for New Zealand to ignore American advice about babies and fluoride. The American Dental Association, which supports fluoridation, is now advising parents not to use fluoridated tap water to make up baby formula.It says because of their small body-weight, bottle-fed babies can be overdosed, and suffer adverse effects. But the New Zealand Dental Association says new concerns in the United States about babies and fluoride are not relevant here.
A spokesperson, Dr Martin Lee, says there is no need to issue similar advice.
But Laurie Brett, a Whangarei dentist who has challenged the use of fluoride, says New Zealand has been accepting American advice about fluoride safety since the 1950s, and should heed the new note of caution.
The American Dental Association says its advice on baby formula does apply to places with the same fluoridation levels as New Zealand's.

Why isn't the NHS taking note in fluoridated parts of the UK?
