On March 14, 2019 a new study was published in the British Journal of Psychiatry. The authors of Aluminium and fluoride in drinking water in relation to later dementia risk concluded that aluminium and fluoride is “related to dementia risk in a population of men and women who consumed relatively low drinking-water levels of both.”
This new information crystallizes a legitimate concern held by many area residents – that artificial water fluoridation may have unintended and irreversible health consequences.
Windsor City Councillors voted to resume artificial water fluoridation without the benefit of this disturbing news of March 14.
This information was sent on March 18th to the council members of Windsor, Tecumseh and LaSalle and it is now incumbent on them to contemplate the potential health risks to which area residents may be exposed.
In light of this new development, which mirrors several others, council members should consider:
Should we resume artificial water fluoridation when such startling information has not been fully explored, AND alternate means of promoting good oral health are known, proven and available?
