Excessive fluoride consumption is toxic to human beings in a variety of ways. But despite this, over 5 million people in England have drinking water that is intentionally polluted with fluoride, and now Professor Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer for England, has advised the UK Government to intentionally add the toxic substance to the entire nations water supply.
The power to intentionally pollute water with fluoride currently resides with local government, however, proposed changes to regulations in the new Health and Care Bill will hand this power over to the UK Health Secretary, and thanks to a report released by the four Chief Medical Officer’s of the United Kingdom there can be no doubt that this policy is about to come to fruition.
In a joint statement, Dr Frank Atherton; CMO for Wales, Dr Michael McBride; CMO for Northern Ireland, Dr Gregor Smith; CMO for Scotland, and Professor Chris Whitty; CMO for England. concluded the following –
‘As with all things in medicine and public health there is a balance of risk and benefit. There is unquestionably an issue with tooth decay in the UK and an entrenched inequality which needs to be addressed. Fluoridation of water can reduce this common problem.
On balance, there is strong scientific evidence that water fluoridation is an effective public health intervention for reducing the prevalence of tooth decay and improving dental health equality across the UK. It should be seen as a complementary strategy, not a substitute for other effective methods of increasing fluoride use.‘
The report by the Chief Medical Officers has been written under the guise that their decision is based on protecting the health of children, but if they really wanted to do this they would not have just overruled the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and told the Government to roll-out the experimental Pfizer mRNA Covid-19 injection to all children over the age of 12.
