WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Wichita residents will vote in November on whether to add fluoride to the city’s water supply.
The Wichita City Council decided Monday to put the issue on the Nov. 6 election ballot.
The decision came after fluoride supporters presented the council with petitions containing more than 11,000 signatures.
Proponents of fluoridation believe it helps prevent tooth decay.
Opponents contend fluoride can cause health problems, and forcing citizens to use it is a violation of individual freedoms.
