Why is there fluoride in Eastsound water? | Letter

July 10, 2013 · Updated 8:55 AM

I would like to know if there is any way to change the policy of adding fluoride to our water here in Eastsound. According to this web page, fluoride is being added to our drinking water:http://water-main.net/EastsoundWashingtonWaterMain.

A quick research on the web will convince you really quickly that fluoride should not be added to our water, and indeed we should all be able to choose whether we want any fluoride in our lives, through water, toothpaste, tea and other sources.

I have purchased a fluoride filter for my drinking water but because I cannot afford a whole house filter, I cannot filter it from my shower/bath water. Fluoride is absorbed through the skin.

I do not wish to have fluoride in my water and hope that somehow we can change the policy of adding it to our city water.
