Why does Findlay add fluoride to the water?


Fluoride is added to the water, as required by state law (passed in 1970) to protect teeth. According to the American Dental Association, persons who drink fluoridated water have a 40 to 50% reduction in the number of cavities that would have occurred without fluoride. Some home filtration devices remove fluoride from water and bottled water may or may not contain fluoride.
