The Forum on Water Fluoridation

The Minister for Health and Children, Mr. Micheál Martin, TD, launched on 10th of September 2002 the final Report of the Forum on Fluoridation. The Minister established the Forum in May 2000 to independently review the fluoridation of public piped water supplies and the programme of research being undertaken on behalf of health boards in the area and to make recommendations to the Minister.
