Thanks for an interesting and objective report on the fluoridation debate. It's amazing that after nearly 70 years of water fluoridation, and tens of thousands of evidence-based research studies on this public health measure, there is still doubt and debate about it. Fluoridation is merely the adjustment of the amount of fluoride that's already naturally present in the water. In the 1930's & '40's, the natural fluoride content in water supplies in cities and towns where people had good dental health and little tooth decay was determined. By copying nature, this is how the practice of water fluoridation began. We now enjoy better dental health with the majority of children never even experiencing dental decay!
