From ABC 11:

Our I-Team story on water fluoridation has generated tremendous response from viewers, readers, dental professionals and advocates on this contentious issue. While our email in-box suggests strong opinions on all sides, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The American Dental Association (ADA) and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services all strongly support fluoridated water. Links to those organizations are included below. ABC 11 will stay on this story and report any further developments.
