Fluoride opponents host informational meetings

By From page A4 | September 06, 2013

Davis Citizens Against Fluoridation will host two informational meetings about the case against fluoridation and the growing body of evidence against this practice. The meetings will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, and Friday, Sept. 27, at the Hattie Weber Museum, 445 C St. in the northeast corner of Central Park.

According to a news release, at these meetings a presenter will:

* Demonstrate the lack of efficacy of water fluoridation to reduce dental decay rates;

* Discuss proven and suspected health risks associated with fluoride ingestion;

* Present adverse environmental consequences of water fluoridation; and

* Offer alternatives to mass medication by water fluoridation.

Soon, the Davis and Woodland City Councils will each be considering whether to fluoridate their share of the cities’ joint surface water project and their own well water.
