Concord honored for its water fluoridation
Concord’s drinking water is full of fluoride, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recognized the city for preventing tooth decay by keeping it that way.
The state announced yesterday that Concord maintained a consistent level of fluoridated water through 2012, which the CDC reports can help lower cavities by 25 percent. Concord’s public water system was among 1,791 recognized by the CDC for its fluoride levels.
In New Hampshire, that list also included the communities of Laconia and Lebanon.
