We are still waiting for certainty over Southampton not proceeding with fluoridation - see here - we heard again from campaigners there this week that they still haven't heard. However in the meantime it was good to hear that Israel, which made fluoridation mandatory in 1974, is to ban it. On July 29, their Supreme Court ruled that fluoridation of public water supplies must stop in one year - health concerns were cited.
The world over it seems countries are stopping water fluoridation - only 3% of Europe remains fluoridated - sadly 10% in the UK and the last Government seemed bent on over-riding local opinion to try and fluoridated wider areas - Southampton was the first main area so if this is stopped it seems likely it will not proceed in other areas.
