Fluoride to again be added to west Cumbria's water supply

Fluoride will once again be added to a west Cumbrian water supply.

The chemical has been added to the water supplied to Cornhow and Ennerdale water treatment works since the late 1960s.

However, the process was halted in April 2006 in Cornhow and in November 2011 in Ennerdale, to allow the treatment equipment to be upgraded.

Public Health England – which took over from the abolished North West Strategic Health Authority on April 1 – has announced that the service is expected to resume in the coming weeks.

United Utilities, which provides the service, has installed new equipment at both sites and extensive checks are now being made before it becomes fully operational.

Have your say

For any mature adult this is bad news as it causes your teeth to darken and most of us want whiter teeth. This is the only place in England where the water is fluoridated, we should not have to put up with it....

People who believe that Fluoride is good for childrens teeth obviously believe anything they are told by the 'ruling' bodies. The true information supplied by experts in this field is readily available on-line to prove the exact opposite. Floride comes second in line for toxicity to Mercury which is top of the list.
