Interesting video- thanks. Funny to see that the pro-fluoride expert is the same individual who carries out cosmetic dental surgery on women, as part
of the reality TV show "10 years younger"- not sure if that's a good thing or not.
Growing up, not so long ago, I remember a couple of different dentists specifically warning me and my sister not to swallow tooth-paste, as the
fluoride was quite dangerous. My sister did get some staining on her teeth, as a result of fluoride. Seems strange that the pro-fluoride woman
instantly dismisses claims that fluoride is dangerous in any way, and uses her credentials in the field of dentistry, in order to lend support to her
claims, when in my personal experience, dentists have advised otherwise. Additionally, the figures the against chap gives show that it's a greater
problem than the pro-woman states.
Regardless, as others have said, the key issue here is that the majority of people in Southampton don't want fluoride added, yet the supposed "voice
of the people", have decided they're getting it, whether they like it or not. At the end of the day, toothpaste is cheap and readily available,
dentist appointments are available to children for free, via the NHS, so there's not really any need for anything extra to be done- there are much
bigger issues that need tackling, i.e unemployment, or the deficit.
