Fluoride foes are thieves

Although anti-fluoridationists may hate to admit it, they are thieves. Pro-fluoridation lawn signs are being stolen throughout Davis County in a desperate effort to make others think their "no" view is the only view and the view of a majority of residents. I want to reassure voters that this is not true. Not only are anti-fluoridationists willing to rob us of campaign signs, they are willing to rob us of a proven, public health measure to prevent dental decay.

As the chairwoman of Utahns for Better Dental Health, I am being inundated with people making comments such as "why are we voting on this again?" Your neighbors who are laying a guilt trip on you, saying that their rights are being infringed upon, need to put a shoe on the other foot and realize that they are taking away your rights to protection from needless dental decay. The hysteria and fear are just that.
