Water fluoridation debate reignites in western Pennsylvania

Debates come and go, but there's one — the seven-decades-old battle over fluoridating drinking water — that appears to be rekindling in western Pennsylvania. Officials in Brackenridge were set to remove fluoride from the town's water supply a few weeks ago. Then the borough's switchboard began to light up. It's a fervent discussion that dates back to the 1940s, when researchers found people living where water supplies had naturally occurring fluoride at certain levels had fewer dental cavities than those living in areas with lower levels.
