No compulsory fluoridation

Comment 8th July 2010

That people should not be compelled to drink fluoridated water if they don't want to.

In Southampon 72% of the population recently voted against fluoridation in a PCT 'consultation' but they are still determined to force this toxic chemical on them.  Fluorisilicic acid used in fluoridation schemes is more poisonous than lead and only slightly less so than arsenic.   Dental health is improving most in unfluoridated countries.

Medicating everyone in a community whether they need it or not goes against all medical ethics.  Only 1% of tap water is drunk, most is used by industry and for washing and toilet flushing so is money down the drain. 

The American Dental Association say no fluoride should be given to children under a year old and that babies bottle feeds should not be made up using fluoridated water.

Why does this matter?

One of the main tenants of democracy is the ability to say "No thank you."  Would you take a painkiller because your neighbour has a headache?  Of course not.
