Q. In accordance with their powers, many state authorities are introducing flouridation of drinking water. This follows the conclusion of 10 years of research that the process ensures that children and adults receive the requird intake of flouride that will strengthen teeth. The maximum level has been set at one part per million. However, there are many who object, claiming that flouridation removes freedom of choice.

Which of the following will weaken the claim of the proponents of flouridation?

A. Flouridation over a certain prescribed level has been shown to lead to a general weakening of teeth.

B. There is no record of the long-term effects of drinking flouridated water.

C. The people to be affected by flouridation claim that they have not had sufficient opportunity to voice their views.

D. Flouridation is only one part of general dental health.

E. Water already contains natural flouride.

I would go with E. :?

A. Flouridation over a certain prescribed level has been shown to lead to a general weakening of teeth.
-> the maximum level has been set. so no need to worry about this.

B. There is no record of the long-term effects of drinking flouridated water.
-> 10 years of research should be sufficient...

C. The people to be affected by flouridation claim that they have not had sufficient opportunity to voice their views.
-> A kind of restatement of those who object (last sentence)

D. Flouridation is only one part of general dental health.
-> irrelevant

E. Water already contains natural flouride.
-> Answer. If water already contains flouride, then why need flouridation? The maximum, not the minimum level of flouride required for strengthening teeth exists.

I vote for A....while drinking water no one knows the prescribed limit so A weakens the argument.

Any thoughts??
