Kansas Lawmakers Table Anti-Fluoride Proposal

KSAL StaffFebruary 24, 2014

A Kansas House committee has tabled a bill to require cities and other local governments to warn consumers if they put fluoride in their water supplies.

Chairman David Crum said the House Health and Human Services Committee’s 10-2 vote Monday means the anti-fluoride bill is dead.

The measure has been condemned by public health officials and the Kansas Dental Association. The federal Centers for Disease Control last year called fluoridation of water “one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.”

But the bill says fluoride is dangerous and would require local governments to warn consumers if it fluoridates water – and to warn that it might lower children’s IQs.

Anti-fluoride activist Mark Gietzen said supporters of the bill will try to get action in the Senate.
