  • Abstract Evidence of water fluoridation's effects on plants, animals, and humans is considered based on reviews by scientific groups and individual communities, including Fort Collins, CO, Port Angeles, WA, and Tacoma-Pierce County, WA. The potential for corrosion of pipes and the use of fluoridation chemicals, particularly fluorosilicic acid, are considered, as is the debate about whether fluoridation increases lead in water, with the conclusion that there is no such increase. The arguments of… CONTINUE READING
