Now Fluoride can be added to our Food
Fluoride may now be added to foods manufactured and supplied in Europe. It’s been classified as a harmless supplement, according to Europe’s highest authority on food standards.
The decision means that food manufacturers can include sodium monofluorophosphate in their products. This is the common form of fluoride found in toothpaste and mouth washes.
The decision, by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), has angered the consumer pressure group Alliance for Natural Health (ANH). ANH is asking for an immediate enquiry.
Dr. Damien Downing, the ANH’s medical director, says: “It’s bad enough brushing your teeth or rinsing your mouth with fluoride. But opening up its usage to food supplements, when it’s very difficult to control how much other fluoride a person is being exposed to, is utterly irresponsible.”
ANH is also concerned that the EFSA is working outside of its remit. It argues that as fluoride has supposed medicinal qualities, the decision to include it in foods is one that should be taken by the European Medicines Agency.
