Iowa town halts treating water with fluoride amid concerns
A small town in northwestern Iowa has ended its decades-long practice of treating the city’s drinking water with fluoride.
The Ida Grove City Council narrowly voted this week to halt fluoride treatment in the city’s water supply, the Sioux City Journal reported. The move comes after city leaders and residents questioned whether the fluoride was effective at preventing tooth decay or presented health risks.
A recent survey distributed through utility bills found that most respondents didn’t support fluoridation in the small city 60 miles east of Sioux City, according to the clerk’s office.
