Health bosses have been praised for their decision to plough ahead with controversial plans to fluoridate Hampshire tap water.But won’t that mean…?
Members of the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD) enthusiastically backed South Central Strategic Health Authority’s move to work towards adding fluoride to the water supplies delivered to nearly 200,000 people.
The organisation says it believes the scheme will reduce child tooth decay by up to half…Hmmmm. Maybe I’m wrong, but logically, shouldn’t they be bewailing this instead? Isn’t it going to lead to a lack of demand for their services?
Still, if the people want it, then…
Members unanimously passed a motion at a conference in Sheffield offering their support for the SHA, which has begun work to move towards implementing fluoridation for Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams.Listen to what? Where does she think she lives…?
The project had been on hold until a High Court judge earlier this year rejected a judicial review bought by Southampton mum Gerri Milner, who argued the SHA should have listened to public opinion before approving it.
