Fluoride issue still open

Regarding water fluoridation in Terrace, the naturopath’s reference to The Lancet should have noted that the journal kept the issue open.

Dear Sir:

Regarding water fluoridation in Terrace, (“City upgrades its fluoride system,” The Terrace Standard, Feb. 17, 2016) the naturopath’s reference to The Lancet in that story should have also noted that the journal has kept the issue open.

Especially since an increase in dental problems has Calgary deciding to review its elimination of fluoride, anyone interested in the issue should regularly consult The Lancet for updates on the ongoing question of utility and harm.

The Lancet is a medical journal which publishes articles which have been reviewed by experts acquainted with the topics of those articles.

It has been described as one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world.

David Heinimann,

Terrace, B.C.
