And that’s the truth

English dentist's astonishment supports case for fluoride treatment in Terrace

Terrace. B.C.

Dear Sir:

Regarding your Feb. 13 front page story on local resident Barry Prince’s call for an end to fluoridation of city water.

My kid brother was born in Kitimat in 1954, a community that added fluoride to its water. The family moved to England six years later and a year or so after that my parents, being great believers in dental health, sent my brother for his first check up.

The English dentist was astonished that he had absolutely no cavities – England did not at that time fluoridate its water. And with that I rest my case.
