    figure 20 reveals a North-South Divide in the approval rates for applications to the cancer drugs fund.


    • There appears to be a North-South divide, with SHA's in the South of England approving a lower proportion of applications.

    FOR EXAMPLE: NHS South Central approved approximately 75% of applications , this is despite the fact that Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) had a combined Cancer Drugs Fund underspend of £22.5 million


    Whereas SHA's North East approved every application received.

    DR DURRANT-PEATFIELD MEDICAL ADVISOR TO THYROID UK SAYS..

    SUMMARY: Fluorides are highly damaging to the Thyroid Gland, Fluorides are mutagenic, That is, they can cause the uncontrolled proliferation of cells we call cancer. This applies to cancer anywhere in the body, A report in 1955 in the New England Journal of Medicine showed a 400% increase in cancer of the thyroid in San Francisco during the period their water was fluoridated.

    The extreme sensitivity of the very young (foetus/baby) to fluoride toxicity makes Fluoridation unacceptable.

Faith groups unite to fight controversial fluoridation plans for Southampton

Daily Echo: Faith groups unite to fight controversial fluoridation plans Faith groups unite to fight controversial fluoridation plans

FAITH groups across Southampton are joining forces to battle against controversial plans to put fluoride in the water.

Religious organisations from across the city are coming together at a public meeting this weekend to discuss ways of combating the plans.

It comes after the Daily Echo yesterday revealed South Central Strategic Health Authority is continuing to press ahead with the scheme, despite there being fewer than three months left before the body is axed by the Government.

Even if the project is not up and running by March 31, responsibility for introducing fluoridation in parts of Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams will fall to the new body Public Health England.

Councils will have the power to reverse the scheme, but they are likely to have to stage expensive public consultations before making any move.

Despite the authority having previously voted to oppose the plans, Southampton City Council leader Richard Williams admitted there is no money in the cash-strapped council’s budget to fight the scheme.

Health chiefs insist fluoridation is the best way of improving dental health in Southampton, particularly among children in more deprived areas.

The SHA’s board unanimously approved the scheme in February 2009 despite 72 per cent of the 10,000 respondents who participated in the public consultation saying they opposed the plans, with fears over a lack of democracy and possible side effects.

Health bosses said they were convinced by arguments fluoride will help cut high rates of tooth decay, particularly in under-fives.

At the time the plan was introduced Southampton was said to have had an especially poor record on rates of rotten teeth in children, and although later surveys suggest the situation has improved the SHA has said it remains confident its decision was right.

But although it is working with Southern Water on how best to implement the scheme, bosses admitted they still don’t yet know how much it will cost, or the exact area it will cover.

This weekend’s public meeting is being held at the Gurdwara Nanaksar, in Peterborough Road, Bevois Valley, at 6.30pm on Saturday, with representatives from many of the city’s religious organisations attending to combat the plans.

All are welcome to attend.
