Topical application of fluoride report

The benefits of topical application of fluoride is highly questionable. A new study has found that the protective shield fluoride forms on teeth is up to 100 times thinner than previously believed. This raises questions about how this renowned cavity-fighter really works. See report here along with Paul Connett talking about fluoride in tap water.

As regular readers of this blog will know the South Central Strategic Health Authority (SCSHA) believes water fluoridation will improve dental health - they gave the go-ahead despite a public consultation showing 72% opposed the idea and the evidence that water fluoridation has many possible health risks.

The judicial review will decide if SCSHA properly considered the views but it seems no decision yet.
