It is true that Simon submitted the document to Wakefield Borough’s Health and Well-Being Scrutiny Board but it was not accepted by them because it did not match the terms of reference. Wakefield had already put a fluoridation proposal on ice in 2007 and in 2015, urged by their Public Health Consultant in Dental Health, they decided they had to revisit the issue. So, in 2015, they asked for recent evidence that fluoride was either beneficial or injurious and ineffective.
At the time, I had formed the embryonic UKFFFA and with long-term residents of Wakefield (Malcolm and Anna Bowman) we were invited to present our evidence which we did successfully.
I am attaching our report to Wakefield Borough Council and wonder if you could replace Simon’s report with ours since our report was the one which was instrumental at preventing Wakefield becoming fluoridated. www.checktheevidence… (PDF Version – Click Here)
