USA - Collier County commissioners set to hear petition to stop putting fluoride in county drinking water

A debate over fluoridation may rear up once again in Collier County commission chambers Tuesday.
Commissioner Tom Henning's assistant, Camden Smith, is set to petition commissioners to stop fluoridation of the county's drinking water.
Smith said she will raise issues about the health and safety of using cavity-preventing fluoride in drinking water and ask commissioners to "stop putting a medical treatment into a public utility."
"I'm not saying fluoride isn't beneficial to children," Smith said. "But 89 percent of our population is over the age of 10 and has no medical need for fluoride. When even the cheapest toothpaste on the planet has fluoride in it, we are not servicing the public good."

Nobody should be forced to ingest fluoride, she said. "While I agree it is a moderate amount of fluoride in our drinking water, the problem is we're bathing in it, drinking it and swimming in it," she said. "I respect anyone's choice to put medical treatment in their water, I asked to be given the same choice.".........................
