Action Alert: Contact Congress on Community Water Fluoridation

Action Alert: Contact Congress on Community Water Fluoridation 
Please take a moment to contact your member of Congress and explain the importance of community water fluoridation by clicking here.
Fluoridation opponents are planning to lobby members of Congress during a conference in Washington, D.C., from September 5-8.  Their stated goals are to end community water fluoridation, ask for congressional hearings on what they believe are the dangers of fluoridation, and request that Congress de-fund the CDC’s Division of Oral Health.  They plan to tell members of Congress that community water fluoridation lowers I.Q. levels in children, and that fluoridation is dangerous and ineffective.
In August, the ADA sent letters to every member of Congress, touting the upcoming 70th anniversary of fluoridation, and providing “10 Reasons to Fluoridate.”  We believe that members of Congress should hear from you directly, prior to the opponents’ lobbying visits.  With your help, we can stop this campaign of misinformation and continue community water fluoridation, which the CDC has proclaimed one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.
Please take action now and inform your representative about community fluoridation. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of our profession.
