A subcommittee of the Phoenix city council will not end fluoridation of the public water system. Instead, the subcommittee members restated their commitment to fluoridation for the local water system that serves approximately 1 dental instruments.4 million residents. The Arizona Republic reports: After nearly two hours of heated testimony from advocates on both sides of the debate, council members agreed without taking a vote to keep adding fluoride to the city’s water supply. They could have sent the issue to the full council. Councilwoman Thelda Williams, who moved to reaffirm the policy, said the medical community has provided sufficient evidence to show that fluoridating water has a public-health benefit. She dismissed claims that it lowers IQ levels in children implant machine. “I just feel very strongly that I think what we’re doing is the right thing to do,” Williams said. “I think public health is the responsibility of government.” According to The Arizona Republic, the “heated testimony” included a fluoridation opponent who shared his conspiracy theory — namely, that the federal government began promoting fluoridation decades ago to protect defense contractors who spilled it into water. Phoenix has been fluoridating its drinking water since 1989. Healthy Kids Have Healthy Mouths A new survey released as part of a new partnership between the American Dental Association (ADA) and New Hampshire Dental Society, who are joining the campaign Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives, indicates that “44% of parents report their child brushes twice a day dental handpiece.” Although parents know the importance of good oral health they are not so clear about the effects of poor oral health such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Dental decay can be prevented with brushing with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and during fluoridated water.
