  • As we know, the kids with the worst teeth needing hospital extractions don't drink plain water at all, yet PHE told me that it is not necessary to actually drink fluoridated water to protect teeth as the chicken nuggets and other junk food these kids live on would be prepared with fluoridated water. Potent stuff indeed, no wonder the kids with responsible, informed parents who only drink water have such high rates of dental fluorosis, which is over 50% in fluoridated areas.

    So, the kids whom PHE are supposedly targeting with fluoridation are missed completely and the kids with good teeth who drink lots of water get damaged teeth from fluoridation. What a farce. In Southampton we had a situation where feasibility studies found that it would not be possible to deliver fluoridated water to the most deprived areas of the city but nonetheless PHE were hellbent on fluoridating the 'posh' kids anyway, just to save face and impose their will on us. The feasibility studies in Hull are likely to mirror the problems in Southampton, but PHE have clearly not learned any lessons that fluoridation is too costly, too controversial and totally ineffective compared to targeted interventions like the Scottish Childsmile scheme.
