Windsor health unit wants fluoride put back into the water
WECHU says percentage of children with decay or in need of urgent care on the rise
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.
