Town is first in Maine to reject fluoride

Town is first in Maine to reject fluoride

MOUNT DESERT, ME In a 229 to 42 vote, residents chose to remove fluoride from their drinking water, making this town the first municipality in the state to do so, a March 7 Bar Harbor Times story reported.

The town has been adding fluoride since 1963, but the water district, citing recent studies showing the additive's potentially negative effects, was prompted to propose ceasing the practice, the story said.

Water District Manager Paul Slack said in the story, "We're thrilled by the results It's now going to be a water supply without additives that's going to be safer for everybody."

Slack said he hopes his town will encourage other Maine municipalities to remove fluoride, the article reported.

Wow, I must of been sleeping during the past umpteen years. I didn't know that Maine had joined the band wagon to kill us off. Water without flouride will mean a longer and healthier life for those that live in the area.

Great news! Very Happy

Good news

Good news and a wise decision. It is toxic waste, they have to put it somewhere.

I wonder why they finally decided to do away with it?

Wise decision though no matter what.
