Fluoridation Fails the Poor

In Kentucky where fluoridation is state mandated, "His county experiences some of the highest rates of child tooth decay in the nation. At the elementary school in [fluoridated] Hindman, Kentucky, for example, UK's dental outreach program, the Eastern Kentucky Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, found that 65 percent of kindergarten through second grade (K-2) students were in need of urgent dental care or showed early signs of tooth decay.

 "You get tired of going to a restaurant to eat
and seeing a young girl or boy working
that just graduated a year or two ago and they won't even look up at you because
they hardly have teeth.
It's frustrating as an educator."
