Water fluoridation not unlawful

14th February 2011

The High Court has said that the South Central Strategic Health Authority was acting lawfully in looking to add fluoride to Southampton's water supply.

Resident Geraldine Milner brought the case against the authority but Mr Justice Holman said that the SCSHA's decision making process had not been "defective". The SCSHA said: "The board remains satisfied that water fluoridation is a safe and effective way to improve dental health and will now be considering its next steps."
