Letter: Established science backs fluoridation

Established science backs fluoridation

To the editor:

Marjorie Shapiro of MomsAgainstFluoridation.org writes a strong and convincing letter against municipal water fluoridation (May 9), but the data contradicting her assertions is readily available on the internet. Established science supports the safety and benefits of fluoridation.

It is recommended by the National Institute of Health, the U.S. surgeon general, the National Institute of Dental Research, the Center for Disease Control, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association. Me, too.

Alexander N. Drescher, M.D., Lanesborough
