In the latest edition of Hot Press, Adrienne Murphy puts 27 questions to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland on the levels of fluoride in our food and beverages.
"Just how much more evidence does the Minister responsible, Alex White, need before taking action?"
So says Adrienne Murphy as she attempts to get an answer to the simple question: How much fluoride does the average Irish person consume?
In the latest issue of Hot Press, we reveal how figures in a new UK scientific survey confirm the likelihood that the Food Safety Authority Of Ireland have made a huge error in their estimation of the amount of fluoride in tea.
A key figure in HP's campaign to end water fluoridation in Ireland, Murphy has found that the Irish government agencies and a plethora of international studies into the subject both provided dramatically different answers.
She attempts to get to the bottom of this issue, discovering that the HSE are seemingly incapable of carrying out tests to find the levels of fluoride in tea or water, and finding out that the HSE have a somewhat cavalier attitude to the welfare of Irish citizens.
And so, a few months after putting 27 Question on the fluoridation of Irish water to the Junior Minister in the area Alex White, Adrienne Murphy puts the same number of highly direct and probing questions to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
