Daily Echo letter

How smug an attitude
MEMBERS of the SHA (Echo, June 5) adopt a very smug attitude towards fluoridation, having totally disregarded the Government's specific promise to the local population. In order to be of much use, the consultation booklet should have been produced by an independent organisation having no axe to grind on either side. The one issued was unnecessarily glossy and fancy, with a number of wholly irrelevant pictures.
It featured an inaccurate map (highlighted by the Echo several weeks ago), besides using misleading terminology, and misrepresentation of the existing research.It was a propaganda exercise, aimed at gullible people who had neither prior knowledge nor desire to look further.
G PAYNE, Southampton.
