By: Carmen McCauley (Letter to the Editor), Chatham Daily News, Chatham, Ontario 29-May-2012 — Sir: Other municipalities are removing fluoride from their water. I won’t say “drinking water,” because we are actually filling our birdbaths with fluoridated water, filling our pools with fluoridated water, bathing and showering in fluoridated water, washing our dishes in fluoridated water, giving our cats and dogs fluoridated water and even watering our lawns with the darned stuff. What a waste of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars.
If we want fluoride, we can buy it in our toothpaste. It is about time Chatham joined the other municipalities. Remove fluoride from our water and stop washing our tax dollars down the drain.
