It's too quiet around here today, so.....

Dentists can tell whose drinking water is fluoridated | Onward Voice

While there are no Ohio-specific studies, those in other states have shown that less money is spent on dental care in communities that fluoridate their water, said Colleen Wulf, community preventive-services coordinator with the Ohio Department of Health’s oral-health section.

“Iodine is added to salt. Chlorine is added to water to prevent bacterial proliferation,” Wulf said. “Fluoridation is just one other public-health program that is shown to benefit the public at an incredibly low cost.”

"A new study reveals pre-school children's tooth decay rates doubled after fluoridation became Kentucky law.

In 1987, 28% of Kentucky preschoolers developed cavities. That number increased to 47% in 2001, according to the July/August 2003 journal, "Pediatric Dentistry."

Hmmm. Ohio and Kentucky share a border. Maybe something magical happens when you cross it.

Personally, I'd head north, pronto.

Cavities Double After Fluoridation

did the study go further to see which children stopped brushing and flossing their teeth and visiting the dentist, and compared it to those children who continued to keep a healthy regimnet of flossing and brushing and seeing a dentist twice a year? and compared it to what they were eating?

why yes it did:

A Kentucky dentist "shocked by a dramatic increase in the dental decay rate" found poor diet to be the culprit(5).



so, it has nothing to do with the fluoridation, but kids who didn't due their due diligence in keeping basic oral health (brushing and flossing) and eating crap.

One thing for sure: all those toothpaste manufacturers who put fluoride in their products must be in cahoots.

Then there's the American Dental Association...

Wow, people actually believe this?

I thought it was a belief only for the mental patients after the asylums emptied.
