Sink some teeth into fluoride deba

Dear Editor:

The proper response to this raging debate over fluoridation of Aspen’s water has a simple solution. We all know that governments study things to death.

OK, so most of Europe’s nations have banned its use as a drinking water additive. I urge Aspen’s City Council to have staff contact the appropriate government agencies and ask for a detailed response as to why they banned fluoride.

I know that the AMA and the American Dental Association praise fluoridation and have shut down debate, calling critics quacks and worse, but they’ve both been wrong.
