I am encouraging all people who get their water from Bellefonte to call, write, go to meetings or email to demand a reconsideration of the plan to stop fluoride treatment of our water supply.
The health and wellness of the community is at stake if this treatment is stopped. It has been proven that fluoridation of the water is a preventative of dental caries.
To assume that all people will have access to dental care, supplemental fluoride and other measures to prevent dental issues such as cavities is not well thought out.
