Fluoridate our public water

By From page A6 | April 04, 2013

For the past weeks, The Enterprise has been occupied with a confused and confusing subject, the “water project.” Strangely enough, the whole discussion with all its pros and cons dealt with money; there was no mention of the main public health concern, namely fluoridation, a well-established and well-proven system to prevent dental disease.

Needless to say, the drug has to be used in the proper dosage and has to be checked regularly since too little would be useless and too much may be harmful.

Money is not the problem: We spend enough money to produce illness such as lung disease by smoking; let’s spend some money on health such as by fluoridation of public water.

Herbert Bauer, M.D.
