Business Insider: For Better Health, Choose Tap Water.
In a piece debunking several health myths, Business Insider (1/2, Ramsey) states that it is a myth bottled water is healthier to drink than tap water. The article explains that unless a person lives “in an area with known unclean drinking water, opting for bottled water” is not the healthier choice, and in fact, the person “could be missing out on fluoride, which is important for keeping teeth from decaying.”
Information about fluoride and community water fluoridation is available at ADA.org/fluoride, and the ADA Catalog also features the Fluoride Nature’s Cavity Fighter brochure. There are additional resources for patients on MouthHealthy.org, including A Mom’s Guide to Fluoride
