Bradford commission reaffirms anti-fluoride vote

BRADFORD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont town commission that handles water and sewer matters has reaffirmed its vote to stop putting fluoride in the water supply

Robert Nutting, chairman of the Bradford Water and Sewer Commission, said he favors eliminating fluoride because he's unaware of "how much is too much" to add. The Valley News reports he said he understands the state recommended a safe dosage, but he said the combination of fluoride in the water supply, toothpaste and other products could push a person over that limit.

Currently, 44 percent of Vermont towns don't fluoridate their water supply.

Dr. Robert Munson, a dentist, said the decision is doing a disservice to residents. He said he was planning to start a petition to put the vote to residents.
