USA - Fluoride warnings need your support in Concord

February 22, 2011 2:00 AMFeb. 19 — To the Editor:
Wednesday, Feb. 12, was a sad day for New Hampshire parents and their babies. But most of them will not even realize it, and that was the point of what happened.

House Bill 312, legislation that would have required a notice on water bills warning parents not to give fluoridated water to their infants, was recommended for defeat in subcommittee under heavy lobbying pressure by the N.H. Dental Association and the N.H. Water Works Association. State Rep. Rich DiPentima, D-Portsmouth, a member of the subcommittee, who has written multiple letters to the editor supporting water fluoridation, is said to have been instrumental in the committee's decision to recommend the bill be killed........

Why would they do that? It ought to be mandatory for a warning in all fluoridated communities.
