A campaign group battling to keep water fluoridation out of Bedford have released a movie about the dangers of the additive.
Fluoride Free Bedford has launched its 50-minute film – Toxic Tap Water: Bedford’s Battle Against Water Fluoridation – on YouTube and Vimeo.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1-UnFMQb_U]
To coincide with the release, the organisation is calling for a UK alliance of campaign groups against water fluoridation.
More than six million people in England are exposed to fluoride in their tap water every day. Areas that still operate fluoridation schemes include Cumbria, Cheshire, Tyneside, Northumbria, Humberside, Lincolnshire, Durham, Nottinghamshire, the West Midlands and Derbyshire.
Some studies link fluoride in tap water to health problems.
