Infant formula labels should warn about fluoridated tap water.

The world's leading infant formula manufacturers would command more respect if their packages warned parents about the risks from the tap water that in public health backwaters like Ireland and Hong Kong, contain medically unlicensed and state-mandated fluorides. This is a critical product deficiency and manufacturers should publish the advice that in order to avoid the risks of exposing babies to unsafe levels of illicit fluoride, their products should not be made up with fluoridated tap water.
