Fluoride won't be added to Island's water supply

Thu, 11 Dec 2014


There are no plans to introduce fluoride into the public water supply on the Island.

The Department of Health and Social Care has dismissed the idea despite the belief by some it could help to improve poor dental health.

Minister Howard Quayle says at the moment it isn't high on his agenda although he does admit more work needs to be done. 

Onchan MHK Zac Hall is one of those who wants to see the Island follow Public Health England's move to add it to water:
