Arkansas legislators are not listening to recent studies on fluoride usage.
They’re mandating all cities and communities in the state with more than 5,000 people to fluoridate all water supplies.
The Arkansas state senate passed a bill, 25-7, that would force cities and towns to fluoridate water. The bill, which has been spearheaded by Sen. David Johnson (D-Little Rock), will impact the town of Fort Smith the most. It is the largest city in the state that currently does not use fluoride in water.
