Fluoridation needs more scrutiny

In response to a Feb. 1 letter written by Bob Russell of the Iowa Department of Public Health on the continued advocacy of Iowa’s water-fluoridation program, Iowans For an End to Water Fluoridation has invited him to attend a locally televised public debate on the issue in Iowa City.

The Iowa City City Council has added fluoridation of water as a topic on its work session. Our organization is seeking reassurance and guarantees from our public-health officials and our city councilors about the safety and the ethics of this practice.

If Russell agrees to travel from Des Moines and openly discuss this issue, our group will make a good faith effort to employ an impartial moderator and a format agreeable to both parties. We have posted 20 questions on our website that we would like addressed by Russell and the City Council.

I hope Russell accepts and takes this opportunity to educate Iowans. There are questions that need to be answered by our public-health officials if water fluoridation is to continue in Iowa City and this state.
