We must ask questions and seek the facts to make an informed decision to fluoridate water or not.

Points to ponder:
If a certain level of fluoride isn't occurring in Juneau's water source naturally, don't add it artificially.
We should be so lucky to have fresh, clean water.
One person's prescription doesn't work for everyone, ask any pharmacist. What about the people who have auto-immune disorders, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn's disease, high or low thyroid, etc.? What about the stress on the immune system that extra chemicals would cause?
I think regular brushing with toothpaste (containing fluoride if one chooses), flossing and regular dental checkups are the best preventative measures. Put the money toward educating the young in dental hygiene.
Personal choice is removed if the city's water is fluoridated.
The city will have a no vote to medicate my drinking water.
