UK Against Fluoridation

Thursday, July 23, 2015


The focus of the last City Council meeting took an unexpected turn toward fluoride levels in the city’s water.

A young man prepared a research paper that claimed the fluoride levels to be too high.

"My conclusion is that we remove fluoride from our water because there's already enough fluoride in toothpaste, bottled water and mouthwash and the long-term effects of fluoride consumption are doing more harm than they are doing good," he said.

"Did you do this for a science project for school?" Mayor McKinley Price asked.

"No, sir, I did not," the young man replied.

Price, who happens to be a dentist, defended the city's fluoride levels.

"The amount of fluoride that is in our public system is adequate, sufficient and very much needed," Price said. "And I speak professionally on that."

The mayor and council members applauded the young man for his research and encouraged him to return to council meetings in the future.
