Water fluoridation to end in Pinellas County, Fla.
from Pinellas Beaches Patch
The Pinellas County Commission voted to stop adding fluoride to the water, effective Dec. 31. Pinellas County has been adding fluoride to the water supplies since 2004. Across the U.S., flouride has been added to municipal water systems for more than 60 years. The argument for adding flouride, which naturally occurs in water at lower levels, is that it helps to prevent tooth decay.
