Dallas Dumps Fluoride
Another large city, has discontinued fluoridation of its water supply. It seems the main reason Dallas is stopping the practice wasn't any real or imagined effect on health, but economics. The city will save a million dollars a year by not fluoridating.
That's a good point, but not the one I've been arguing. It should be matter of personal choice, especially when there's any number of ways to ingest fluoride if someone wants to do so.
I've wrote before that fluoride wasn't even on my radar two or three years ago. I'm still not all that concerned about its supposed health effects. Eureka's water has been fluoridated since long before I moved here.
I first got interested in fluoridation reading of Sonoma County's plans to fluoridate their water. I was appalled at how many seemed determined to force it on those who didn't want what is essentially industrial waste put in the entire water supply.
The individual choice argument doesn't go over well in California, especially in the Bay Area. Maybe economic considerations will sway more minds?
