January 2024: Manchester University study shows mass fluoridation has minimal benefits. Read the full report here.

The fluoridation of all water supplies in West Cumbria, Allerdale and Copeland, will restart from Willamsgate in this Autumn 2023.

The Government has decided that there is no need to consult the approximately 130,000 members of the public affected by the addition of Hexafluorosilicic Acid under the guise of fluoride. This is a policy to be rolled out in England (10% is fluoridated at the moment) and the rest of Cumbria could be next.

People living in West Cumbria, who are largely unaware this is happening by the way, have no choice in the matter and are being denied their democratic right to choose whether they want this industrial by-product added to their drinking water. It is not the pharmaceutical grade found in toothpaste and contains many contaminants such as lead, arsenic, cadmium and other carcinogens.

2022:Breaking news..The long awaited Catfish study report.

We offer our questions and answers to the County Council meeting on November 24 2021.

Some exciting news !!
We have been lobbying , for what seems like an eternity , Cumbria CC to scrutinise the fluoridation of West Cumbria. On Friday 25th. June the Scrutiny Management Board elected a Chairman for a task and finish group to do exactly that !! Considering all the evidence, International,national and local.
The Chairman is: Stephen Haraldsen.The group will be established immediately and will be made up of Councillors who are not cabinet members.
Evidence collection will start as soon as the group is established and a report will be produced for the SMB meeting in November with a recommendation to cabinet in December 2021.
So it's all systems go to put our case and as a starting point I have attached Joy's Case Against Fluoridation for you all to read. This will be circulated to CCC as soon as the T&F group members are known to us.
Our time has come ladies and gentlemen to stand up and be counted.This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to stop the fluoridation of West Cumbria by preventing the process from starting at the new water treatment works at Williamsgate and I hope and expect that you will all be up for the fight.Public awareness events ,press involvement and demonstrations are all being prepared.
I will keep you posted on developments and let you know what actions we are proposing to highlight our campaign and inform the public. Let's get ready for thefray!!

West Cumbria has intermittently had artificial fluoride in the form of hexafluorosilic acid added to its water since 1968.
