Almost seven-hundred-thousand Floridians, residents of Pinellas County to be exact, no longer have to be concerned about fluoride being added to the public water supply. Who is responsible for this feat? Norm Roche.
The fact is that Pinellas county began adding fluoride to the public water supply almost eight years ago and a vote by county commissioners has undone the practice. Dentists in attendance at the “workshop” were shaken by the commissioner’s vote of 4-3 in favor of stopping fluoridating the public supply.
Perhaps the most telling statement on the issue was issued by Roche, who happens to be a new commissioner there:
If you’re going to put in the water a chemical that does not have anything to do with the cleanliness of purifying the water, then that needs to be in the hands of the public, the citizens need to vote on it.
We couldn’t agree more with you Norm, congratulations!
If you are battling fluoridation of your public water supply, do not lose hope. Victories such as this one are the results of properly informed & involved citizens. The Fluoride Action Network is a great resource for learning more about the issue and getting involved with real data.
