Question 37.
Where can reliable information about water fluoridation be found on the Internet and World Wide Web?

ADA's Fluoridation Facts Short Answer
The American Dental Association, as well as other reputable health and science organizations, and government agencies have sites on the Internet that provide information on fluorides and fluoridation. These sites provide information that is consistent with generally accepted scientific knowledge.

ADA's Fluoridation Facts Long Answer
The World Wide Web is evolving as an accessible source of information. However, not all "science" posted on the Web is based on scientific fact. Searching the Internet for "fluoride" or "water fluoridation" directs individuals to a number of websites. Some of the content found in the sites is scientifically sound. Other less scientific sites may look highly technical, but contain information based on science that is unconfirmed or has not gained widespread acceptance. Commercial interests, such as the sale of water filters, may also be promoted.

One of the most widely respected sources for information regarding fluoridation and fluorides is the American Dental Association's (ADA) home page at www.ada.org. From the ADA website individuals can make contact with other websites for more information about fluoride.

Repeat of Question 37.
