The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is recommending Windsor put fluoride back in its water.

It's a position officials have previously taken but now have some new data to back it up.

According to the health unit's annual report, between 2011-2012 to 2016-2017, the percentage of children with tooth decay or requiring urgent care has increased by 51 per cent. 

It also says 4 out of 5 Windsor-Essex residents support putting fluoride back in the water.

Windsor stopped adding fluoride to its water back in 2013.
