http://fluoridefreekansas.org/2012/07/03/fluoridation-debate-back-ksn/ A familiar debate surrounding the fluoridation of Wichita water is back. Those for and against are raising awareness of the issue and want you to know more about your drinking water. Nearly 500 medical professionals have joined together to raise awareness of what they see as benefits and the need for optimal level fluoride in Wichita's drinking water. "We believe the CDC says this is good for our community and we stand by the sound scientific research and feel it would be beneficial to all our citizens in the Wichita area," advocates Dr. Sara Meng, a dentist in Wichita. "Everything else we put in our water is treated water to make the water safer. Putting fluoride in the water doesn't do that," says Michael Hicks, who is the executive director of Wichitans for Pure Water, a group opposed to fluoridation. "Healthy diet and proper dental hygiene are the keys to preventing cavities in children and keeping this community safe," says Hicks.
