The fluoride debate may be getting long in the tooth for some, but it could be returning to city hall.
A notice of motion has been brought forward by councillors Peter Demong, Diane Colley-Urquhart and Richard Pootmans for an objective assessment of the evidence on water fluoridation.
The trio wants to bring in the U of C’s O’Brien Institute for Public Health to look at a study from early this year that had some alarming findings.
Grade two kids in Calgary were found to have almost twice as many cavities as kids in Edmonton where fluoride is added to the drinking water.
The O’Brien Institute has offered its services free of charge.
Calgary stopped adding fluoride to our drinking water in 2011.
