Windsor Ends Water Fluoridation

On Monday evening Windsor city council voted 8-3 to end the practice of water fluoridation. After 51 years of fluoridating the water supply.

Mayor Eddie Francis (who voted to remove fluoride) stated: “A lot has changed in the last 60 years … fluoride is not the be-all and end-all to prevent tooth decay,” Source
