Wichita Advocates to Fight Fluoride Nationally

(Photo via

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Advocates who led the successful fight against adding fluoride to Wichita's water say they plan to take their campaign across the country. In Tuesday's election, 60 percent of the voters opposed fluoridation in Wichita, while 40 percent voted for it. The Wichita Eagle reports that three-fourths of municipalities in the United States fluoridate their water supplies. But Mark Gietzen, president of the Kansas Republican Assembly, says plans are being made to expand the fight against fluoridation. He says one effort might be promoting a state recommendation against fluoridation while still allowing communities to decide the issue locally. Gietzen says he also wants to make fluoride one of the top issues for the National Republican Assembly.
