My Letter to the Citizen: Wellness Should Be A Choice

I wrote a letter to our local paper, The Citizen regarding the fluoridation issue. Auburn has not had fluoride in the water supply since the early 1970's. A voter referendum is required if the public wants to reinstate this practice. It is hard to gauge the public's opinion. There have been a few letters in the newspaper both pro and con. A very short debate was played on the public TV station, and one public meeting was held by a group of medical professionals. Overall I feel the public is ambivalent. It doesn't matter enough.

I hope we keep fluoride out of the water. There are plenty of ways to take care of children's teeth and supplying fluride to your own individual water supply at home is a viable option that would not burden the tax payers.

Here is the letter:

Dear Editor:

Initiatives to stop fluoridating water have worked in over 70 cities in the U.S. alone. The following website lists all the successful campaigns since 1990:

Numerous health care professionals, physicians and chiropractors have banded together to educate the public on this important issue. David Kennedy, DDS, from San Diego, California, has a DVD series in the editing phase that will be for sale to the public regarding this safe water initiative.

It may be helpful to apply fluoride topically to the teeth. However, why must every cell in the body be exposed? Imagine the consequences to the brain (Alzheimer’s?), thyroid, and reproductive organs. This is similar to the second hand smoke dilemma. Why must our entire population be subjected to it? Albany, Ithaca, and Amsterdam recently became fluoride free. We should be proud that Auburn was ahead of them decades ago.

Thank you for writing to the newspaper. Maybe someday we'll be working together

The New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation was created in the 1970's which successfully thwarted organized dentistry's attempt to mandate fluoridation state-wide in New York.

Fluoridation is an old-fashioned belief which modern science has shown is ineffective, harmful to health and a waste of money.
