Spring Hill is joining a small, but growing, list of cities pulling the fluoride out of citywide drinking water.
It was a unanimous decision Monday when city aldermen voted to discontinue putting fluoride in the city’s water supply. While the American Dental Association says fluoride cuts down on cavities, others say the risk outweighs the benefits.
The resolution has become a hot topic in the city of Spring Hill. Alderman Amy Wurth proposed the resolution with the reasoning that there are other sources of fluoride, like toothpaste. And some residents agreed there’s no need to fluoridate the water supply.
“I just don’t know that we have enough proof to say that it doesn’t cause people harm,” resident Jennifer Smith said. “There’s a lot of people with health problems and other things they’re sensitive to.”
