Do people really drink the water?

By From page A6 | September 17, 2013

In the arguments pro or con regarding fluoridation of Davis water, I am wondering how many residents actually drink the water. I don’t believe fluoride should be added to the water for many reasons. However, above and beyond this, if it’s just used for washing dishes, plants and bathing, even if it did have any benefit, it probably wouldn’t make any difference if it isn’t ingested, which I think it seldom is.
Shouldn’t this, in and of itself, make it all an insignificant (and a bit comical) debate?
Maybe just save time and money, and move on to more important matters.
