Robert and Joan Ross, parents from New York

dental fluorosis, thyroid

In 1973, while we were living in south Florida, my three-year-old daughter developed fluorosis... In 1974, we moved to White Plains, New York. Since that water was also fluoridated, we drank only bottled water. I became active in fighting water fluoridation when we moved to Albany. In 1992, I formed Citizens for Safe Water and our group successfully prevented the fluoridation of Albany's water supply.
