NEWS: Windsor to vote on water fluoridation, Jan. 28

CBC reports, “The Windsor Utilities Commission recommends fluoride be removed from the city’s drinking water. Windsor council is to decide whether to do so on Monday (January 28). …The Windsor drinking water system also provides water to the towns of LaSalle and Tecumseh. The Town of Tecumseh has already advised the WUC to stop adding fluoride to the water.”

Almost a full year ago (on January 21, 2012) we noted in a campaign blog – CBC reports, “Two groups are banding together to try to convince Tecumseh town council to petition the Windsor Utilities Commission to stop fluoridating the water it supplies to the town. …Doug Hayes of the Council of Canadians said he will be there with a representative from the group Fluoride Free Windsor. Hayes lives in Tecumseh and only drinks fluoride-free water. He considers it hazardous to his health. …Hayes said researchers have not found any difference in the teeth of people who drink fluoridated water compared to those who don’t. He said it can actually cause damage to teeth, called dental fluorosis.”
