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.
