Health Ministry Weighs Fluoride-in-Water Debate


The Knesset’s Labor, Wellbeing and Health Cabinet deliberated on Tuesday a proposal to stop putting fluoride in tap water, and potential ramifications of doing so.

At the start of the meeting, the head of the Health Ministry’s Public Health Services department, Prof. Itamar Gruto, said that the ministry is deliberating the possibility of not entirely removing fluoride from tap water, but rather to allow local authorities to add fluoride into their water, should they so desire.
