Hohenwald latest town to stop adding fluoride to water

Posted: Updated:
HOHENWALD, TN (WSMV) -

Another Middle Tennessee city is about to remove fluoride from the drinking water. 

City leaders in Hohenwald made the decision Tuesday night, but they will have to notify customers in writing before making the change.

Beginning Nov. 10, the city will stop adding fluoride to the water.

Officials said they began looking into the matter after a resident brought up the issue.

Adding fluoride to tap water has become a hot-button topic in Middle Tennessee.

Even though the American Dental Association said it cuts down on cavities, many people aren't sold on the health benefits.

Last month, Spring Hill, TN, city leaders voted to stop adding fluoride to the town's water supply. Waynesboro and Lewisburg have also removed fluoride from their water supplies.
