Kenya: Consumer Body Still Investigating Water Brands With High Flouride

Brands of water in the market which contain excess fluoride will be named once the government chemist releases the test results.

COFEK's Stephen Mutoro says the government is finding it hard to verify the level of fluoride in the water due to lack of capacity. Excess fluoride in drinking water can cause fluorosis which affects the teeth and bones.
