Star-Telegram | 01/28/2007 | Your sweet tooth helps kids' teeth:

Dental care not fluoride reduced tooth decay in fluoridated Arlington, Texas:

"When its SMILES school program began, the volunteer dentists and hygienists found that 61 percent of children examined had active decay, 19 percent with decay severe enough to cause pain or infection.

'Thanks to DHA, 60 percent of those kids now have healthy smiles, and tooth decay has been cut to less than half what it was when the program started,' Hopper said."
