Fluoridation Fails San Antonio, Texas

In water fluoridated San Antonio, "one in four children is likely to have tooth decay by the time they go to kindergarten in San Antonio, according to UT Health San Antonio."

"San Antonio needs more nonprofit clinics for low-income families, Salazar said, but it takes funding. For now, outreach efforts and the clinic are “doing something” in the community, even if the problems persist, she said.

'They’re coming in with rampant decay, just all over,” Salazar said. “In fact, that’s why they come, I’m seeing black spots on their teeth.”
