Should The Government Be Medicating Us With Fluoridated Water?


We've been having an internal international debate since Christine's Parentables post on fluoridation, noted on TreeHugger here. Is it an "unwanted intrusion on private decisions about nutrition and supplements" or is it a benefit to everyone, especially the poor who don't get proper dental care? Why do "socialist cheese-eating Europeans advocate for personal choice while Americans support the truly socialist option at the cost of personal freedom"?
