Fluoride in Foods
compiled by Rob Pratt
The presence of fluoride in foods and the consequence of it remains one of the most hotly contested points of the debate over Measure N, the water-fluoridation ban Santa Cruz voters decide on March 2. Anti-fluoridation groups say that most people get enough fluoride from other sources and don't require any more in drinking water. Pro-fluoridation groups say that the common occurrence of the element demonstrates a long record of safety.
