Bedford Borough

Bedford Borough has not been fluoridated since 2009.  In 2016, Bedford Council decided to start the process of cancelling its fluoridation contract with Anglian Water.

We have placed here links to two reports which were produced between autumn 2015 and February 2016.  Both informed the debate.

Public Health England (Bedford) (2015). Dental health: impact of water fluoridation in children in Bedford


UKFFFA (2016). Presentation to Bedford Borough Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee.  A Commentary on PHE Bedford's Report on the Oral Health Survey November 2015:  Water fluoridation - safe and effective!?


The legal case against water fluoridation can be found on pp 85-88 of UKFFFA's report above.  The legal case is expanded in the January 2019 Editorial on this website's Home Page.
