Holmen Prepares For Fluoride, Despite New Health Report

Federal health experts are saying what opponents of fluoridation have been warning about for decades...

Kids are getting stains on their teeth from fluoride in public tap water.

Now, the feds recommend using lower levels of fluoride to prevent tooth decay. If the lower standard becomes law, that would be a money-saver for communities like Holmen, which might spend less money on chemicals.  Fluoridation was approved there in a 2008 referendum, and the supply system should be operating within the next hundred days.
