Wichita considering fluoride for drinking water

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita residents are gearing up to consider whether the city should add fluoride to its drinking water.

The Wichita public television station is hosting a debate Oc.t 18 on whether the city should add fluoride to its drinking water. The Wichita Eagle reports that two representatives from Wichitans for Healthy Teeth and Wichitans Opposed to Fluoridation will take part in the televised debate.

The League of Women Voters is also sponsoring a second forum on the topic set for Oct. 23.

Wichita voters will then decide Nov. 6 whether to pass a ballot initiative to fluoridate the municipal water supply.
