Canada studies impact of cessation of fluoridation

Canadian researchers are studying the dental impact of no fluoridation of the drinking water in Calgary, Alberta.

University of Calgary researchers are investigating children's teeth two years after Calgary stopped fluoridating the city's drinking water, according to a story.

Dental exams will be performed on hundreds of first- and second-grade students at Calgary schools, and the results will be compared with children in Edmonton, where the water is still fluoridated.

Richard Musto, MD, Calgary's medical officer of health, said he hopes the new evidence convinces city officials to revisit the issue.
