    I’m sure most of those 220 who voted for fluoridation were never informed of fluoride’s negative effects and that it’s a drug, with side effects and is not a nutrient. Teeth don’t need fluoride. The CDC says ingesting fluoride does not reduce tooth decay. So anyone who voted in favor of fluoridation were seriously misinformed. The question is why?
