Fluoridation debate is not settled                                              http://www2.fluoridealert.org/Alert/United-States/New-Hampshire/Fluoridation-debate-is-not-settled                                                  “Similarly, U.S. counties that do not fluoridate (and do not have naturally occurring fluoride in the water) show the same rate of tooth decay as those that do fluoridate. When fluoridation was halted in some communities (in Canada, Finland, and the former East Germany), tooth decay rates did not go up but remained stable or continued to decrease. None of these are the results you would expect if fluoridated water had anything to do with reducing decay.”
