On the 23rd of September 2021, the UK’s four chief medical officers recommended adding fluoride to all tap water ‘in order to combat tooth decay’. It is expected that ministers will soon implement this.
There is however, scientific literature on the negatives of adding fluoride to mains water.
It would be better if people brushed their teeth with toothpaste daily and monitored to intake of sugar, rather than compel the entire population to ingest fluoride.
There needs to be greater discussion of this in the public sphere before implementation.
