‘Citing high costs that continually raise water prices for local customers, the Board of Aldermen in Buffalo, Missouri, a small town just north of Springfield, recently made the decision to stop fluoridating the public water supply. Members of the board explained that transporting fluoride chemicals is damaging city equipment and trucks, not to mention water pipes that corrode as a result of fluoride exposure.
The decision came after the health department in Dallas County, where the town is located, sent notification that it would no longer subsidize the costs associated with providing the fluoride and replacing damaged equipment. The department had previously covered half of the costs associated with the town’s fluoride program, paying up to $1,000 per year to bring in the chemicals.’
