Why do we have fluoride in the public water supply and is it good for us or are there risks?
A public 2 on 2 "discussion" will be held Monday, November 12th at 7:00 PM at UNCA in Asheville, North Carolina with doors opening at 6:15.
The students of the Student Environmental Center (SEC) at UNCA hope that media will cover this significant and timely discussion- the first of its kind in the country. Many of us drink water, beverages or soups with fluoride and now we have the opportunity to debate, discuss and reveal the purported benefits and the potential risks of water fluoridation.
Are chronic ailments linked to water fluoridation?
Or, is water fluoridation a boon to cavities and dental health? Is our dental health better with the fluoride in our drinking water and is it risk free?
Come and see this important discussion as this effects Americans here and now, tomorrow and the unborn.
WHEN: Monday November 12th at 7:00 (doors open at 6:15)
