66 years ago this week, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the first city to add fluoride to its public water supplies. Since then, a great debate has ensued regarding whether or not public water supplies should be artificially fluoridated.

Most water systems ended up fluoridating their water right around 1 PPM. You can find out how much fluoride is in your tap water here. Just over three weeks ago, the United States Department of Health and Human Services lowered the upper recommended limit of fluoride in public water to simply 0.7 PPM.
This week, I will take a close look at both sides of the fluoride debate and publish three different articles about water fluoridation:
