Water fluoridation is an illegal health intervention and is incompatible with Clinical Codes of Practice. The levels consumed by individuals drinking the recommended water intake from fluoridated tap water sources is beyond safe limits and is provably dangerous to human health, with risks including (but not limited to) dental/skeletal fluorosis, decreased IQ, neuropathy, thyroid disease, decreased immunity and cancers.
Fluoride is added to water, ostensibly to decrease rates of tooth decay in children. However, studies have shown that tooth decay incidence has decreased globally, regardless of fluoridation practice.
Fluoride was first added to drinking water supplies in concentration camps in Nazi Germany, and gulags in Soviet Russia, for the purpose of increasing docility of prisoners, ensuring that guard numbers could be kept to a minimum.
Of contemporary concern is the fact that fluoride added to water is sourced from industrial aluminium production byproducts, and can contaminate the water supply with arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury.
Further, the addition of fluoride is illegal as any such health intervention requires informed consent, which has not been given in the vast majority of instances. Thus, any such legislation authorising the addition of fluoride should be immediately abolished in the interests of human rights and public safety. Following from this, the addition of fluoride to UK tap water should cease with immediate effect.
