Abstract

To the Editor:  —A statement appeared in The Journal, April 4, p. 1056, under the title, "Summary of Goiter Prevention," to the effect that Rochester had discontinued its method of adding iodid to the water supply. So far as Rochester is concerned, the statement is one of the "facts that aren't so." Rochester has not stopped putting iodid in the water. It is putting it in now. No information relating to the taking of tablets containing iodid has been given or will be given in Rochester by me.
