Bravo to The Bellingham Herald for it's courageous reprint of the editorial by the News Tribune, Tacoma, "Fluoridation protects health; it is not forced medication." It covers all of the pertinent talking points I have been promoting my entire career as a "safety net provider" to the thousands of the most vulnerable of those among us with the highest rates of untreated advanced and symptomatic tooth decay, low income children. Fluoride in appropriate dosing works, plain and simple. Belief, concern and passion of opposition to this reality only sets back the efforts at eradication of this third-world level epidemic in our beloved community.
