Anti-Fluoride Campaigners Take to Britain's High Court

Anti-fluoride campaigners are appealing to Britain's High Court in an attempt to prevent fluoride from being added to their water without their consent. The potential side-effects, the campaigners argue, can range from bone cancer to thyroid problems to dental fluorosis.

The South Central Strategic Health Authority (SCSHA) wants to add fluoride to water supplies in Southampton and parts of south west Hampshire.

According to the Telegraph:

"About 5.5 million people in Britain, just less than a tenth of the population, drink fluoridated tap water, including most of Birmingham. However, no area has had fluoride added to its supply in the last 20 years."
