UK Against Fluoridation

UK - Comments to the Echo

Does this leave the Water Companies open to prosecution for interfering with the purity of our drinking water? It is not known what other side effects it has on the body. Will filtered tap water remove the flouride? I already have a strong smell of chlorine in my water at times. It should be up to the young mothers to stop buying these silly sugary drinks for their children and give them something more suitable. Buying the child a toothbrush would also help.Does this leave the Water Companies open to prosecution for interfering with the purity of our drinking water?

I am not convinced that the Council will take into consideration the views of those who oppose fluoridisation.They have ridden roughshod over the opinions and wishes of citizens for many years in the past.I am not convinced that the Council will take into consideration the views of those who oppose fluoridisation.They have ridden roughshod over the opinions and wishes of citizens for many years in the past.

To answer Bagamn. The government has legislated that water companies are not open to prosecution. Normal filters will not remove fluoride. You ought to use a filter for the removal of chlorine as it too causes colon cancer. This is one time when I think the councils will vote against the measure but that may not stop it.To answer Bagamn. The government has legislated that water companies are not open to prosecution.

South Central SHA, Newbury says...9:45am Wed 17 Sep 08
"haf, Cadnam says...1:22pm Tue 16 Sep 08This so called consultation is far from fair, supposedly they were to have 9 drop ins but now they are manning road shows everyday handing out one sided propaganda. Yesterday they had a caravan in the Centre of the city near West Quay car park and were handing out leaflets."It appears these facts have been muddled. To be clear the Strategic Health Authority (SHA) is running the public consultation and coordinating the drop-in events NOT Southampton City PCT. The PCT is the organisation currently running a roadshow in the city NOT the SHA. The SHA and PCT are two completely seperate organisations. The consultation is fair, open and transparent. All material we have produced including the way in which the SHA Board will make the final decision have been published on the SHA website so that anyone can see how this consultation is being coordinated.The SHAs role in this consultation is to listen to all views in an objective manner and come to a final decision. At the drop-in events neither 'pro' fluoridation groups or 'anti' fluoridation groups were invited as these are SHA events to set out the proposal under consultation and allow members of the public to ask questions direct to the SHA and seek more information. To provide opportunites for both sides of this debate to share a platform, the SHA will be hosting three Question Time style events at which the public can ask questions of both sides including Hampshire Against Fluoridation. Information on these will appear in the press in due course."haf, Cadnam says...1:22pm Tue 16 Sep 08This so called consultation is far from fair, supposedly they were to have 9 drop ins but now they are manning road shows everyday handing out one sided propaganda.

Fair? Under Government legislation money was supposed to be given to those presenting the opposite view to the PCT but no money has been forthcoming, While you are spending £177,250 on the consultation the PCT are spending £2000 on a full page advert in the Echo spending money on the road shows with its leaflets and very well paid staff manning it to push fluoridation. All this money could have been spent on these neglected kids teeth!! You accept coupons giving support while we have to have cogent arguments backed by peered reviewed papers. Very fair I'm sure.
