A town in England has a little bit to be optimistic about this evening. Bedford’s anti-fluoridation campaign has halted a plan to fluoridate their borough’s public water. Members of Fluoride Free Bedford took their position to a town council meeting and came out on the winning side (for now).
After the meeting last week campaign coordinator Cynthia Bagchi said: “We may have to continue this fight to help other areas, because if we don’t help other areas to understand the truth and keep fluoride out of their areas, they will come back and try and persuade the councillors here to fluoridate again. We’ve made a wonderful start but we can’t rest on our laurels.”
