The Resolution Passed by Bedford Full Council Meeting on 20th July 2011 in Relation to Water Fluoridation

Petitions Agenda, Appendix A, Item 10.

The Campaign Against Water Fluoridation in Bedford
We the undersigned are deeply concerned that a toxic cocktail of chemicals are being added to our drinking water in the name of “water fluoridation”.
We would like to point out that this toxic cocktail called “Hexafluorosilicic acid” is a waste product from the manufacturers of fertiliser. It consists of harmful chemicals including fluorosilicic acid, arsenic and lead.
We impress upon the Council to act decisively by asking Anglian Water to immediately stop adding “Hexafluorosilicic acid” to our water supply.
