When a 2.5 year old child goes to the dentist for the first time and is told she has more cavities then the child can count, there is a problem. The fluoridation of water is crucial in prevent tooth decay and not to mention the huge financial burden associated for dental treatment. Our teeth are intended to last us a life time, and without fluoride our teeth are more susceptible to cavities and causing decay at an earlier age. Fluoridation of water is considered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as "one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century, to be taken out of our water is a grave mistake. I ask for your help to request City of Calgary to return fluoride back to our drinking water.
