HEALTH chiefs have today backed controversial plans to fluoridate Southampton's tap water.
Members of South Central Strategic Health Authority's board have voted to give the scheme the green light, affecting almost 200,000 Hampshire residents, after months of debate.
The decision after two hours and ten minutes makes Southampton the first place in England to introduce fluoridation since the law was changed to put the decision in the hands of health chiefs.....
More than seven out of ten of all respondents who live in the affected area said they are against the plans, while an independent phone survey found more were opposed than in favour.
