Fluoridation of water supply

Fluoridation of water supply

JAMA 230(11): 1569-1569

It is considered that during 35 years the benefits of 1.0 or 1.5 mg F-/litre in communal drinking water in reducing dental caries have been firmly established, and that that level of fluoridation is safe. Less than 50% of communal drinking water in the United States has been fluoridated. This is partly because the implementation of fluoridation must be approved by referendum, by elected officials or some combination of these, and partly because of objection by different groups of citizens.
