Dallas to Continue Adding Fluoride to Its Water
After all Kadane said, how could fluoride in water possibly work to protect teeth if you ingest it. It couldn’t work without spreading it on, he said.
Rick Callahan, the only other council member who made comments about the proposal, gently chided Kadane and The Dirt Doctor, organic gardener Howard Garrett, who also wanted to dump fluoride.
This is “not about nematodes,” he said to explain why he, despite being a loyal listener to Garrett’s radio show, would be siding with the dentists.
“Candidly and frankly, I just think [anti-fluoridation rhetoric] is junk science,” Callahan said. “Why on earth would we want to turn back the clock and join the Flat Earth Society?”
Adam Medrano was the sole council member to join Kadane on the losing side of a 13-2 vote.
