Twenty people died in Pennsylvania in 1948 when they inhaled fluoride emitted by a zinc plant (www.fluoridation. com/donora.htm). Our government now requires that plant smokestacks contain scrubbers to capture fluoride before it is released into the air. This same fluoride is then removed and sold to cities to add to drinking water as fluorosilicic acid.
Fluoride has been added to the tap water in Drayton Valley since the mid 1960s, but that may all be about to end. Last Wednesday town council heard a presentation from water plant manager Bernie Berube, who urged them to abandon the process.
The use of fluoride in pet toothpastes is controversial, and most veterinary dental specialists and general practitioners don't recommend its use because of the potential problem of toxicity. Human toothpastes can have higher levels of fluoride, as well as salts, detergents and baking soda that can harm your dog's teeth.
