This week sees the launch of the trailer of Fluoride Free Bedford’s documentary: Toxic Tap Water: Bedford’s Battle Against Water Fluoridation.

The release of the full 50-minute film is due on Saturday, April 18.

Producer and director Anna Bragga said: “Toxic Tap Water goes to the heart of Bedford’s battle against water fluoridation, bringing vivid sounds and imagery of the campaign into private living rooms for the first time.

“Although a low budget film, Toxic Tap Water packs a punch due to the emotive nature of the subject and the passion and commitment of campaigners.”

The documentary marks a milestone in the group’s 13-year history, which campaigns to keep fluoride out of the town’s tap water.

Co-ordinator Cynthia Bagchi, said: “I want this film to alert the whole of England. If other areas haven’t been engaging, I hope they’ll see what we are doing and be inspired.

“I hope the film will help activists and awaken those who are asleep, unaware of the tsunami approaching – the push for water fluoridation.”

Some studies link fluoride in tap water to health problems.

The film will be available to watch on Vimeo and Youtube.
