ABSTRACT
The article reports that United Utilities is costing four schemes to add fluoride to tap water in Greater Manchester, England, after health authorities in the region asked the company to help them combat widespread tooth decay among children. The options are to add fluoride to the entire water supply in the northwest to water supplied to Greater Manchester to water supplies for Greater Manchester, Liverpool and Blackburn or to the plants in the region, which supply most of Greater Manchester.
