Letter from Robert Pocock to MEP

Dear MEP,
Fluoridation not needed.linked with adverse health effects ....no advantage over topical application of fluoride
EU Commission February 2012*.

Re the 10th Feb emailed pre-alert from Irish MEP Marian Harkin (ALDE), I would like to ask again for you support for my Petition 210 of 2007 against fluorosilicates added to most Irish and some English drinking water, mainly affecting 6 million residents of the East & West Midlands & N. East England.

Scotland , Wales , N. Ireland & the Isle of Man have all rejected a practice that invariably leads to public outcry in whichever new area of England is targeted, just as is happening in Hampshire today please see www.hampshireagainstfluoridation.org. for more details.

Responding at last to continuous pressure by MEPs and UK and Irish campaigners, the EU Commission issued a scientific risk assessment on fluoridation in May 2011. It has only this month followed up by re-publishing SCHER's damning conclusions. Some of them are quoted above -- the whole posting is accessible here*
I am again appealing for your personal support at the Petitions Committee as a UK MEP
(11.am Tuesday 28th Feb in the Altiero Spinelli building of the European Parliament in room A3G3)
to help persuade the EU Commission to act on its own risk assessment by implementing the measures needed to protect children from this crude and damaging treatment in Ireland and the UK .
Your constituents may like to follow proceedings which are to be webcast on this link

Yours sincerely,
Robert Pocock
