children. They were mostly white, with an average annual income of
additional dental cavities and men had 5.3 additional cavities for every

Fluoridation Fails Delaware
Fluoridation is required by the state in Delaware:
Low income? Dental care hard to come by
The cost to taxpayers has been a major obstacle to expanding the state's subsidized dental benefits, said Sen. Bethany Hall-Long, D-Middletown, chair of the state Senate Health Committee.
Hall-Long introduced two bills in the 147th Legislative session that specifically addressed that need for subsidized adult dental care in Delaware, but they failed to make it to the Senate floor.
State budget officials then estimated the expansion would cost $6.2 million a year for about 216,000 beneficiaries.

Fluoridation Fails Florida Children
in spite of the greater prevalence of fluoride in drinking water, what a child
eats and drinks can have a big impact, even if they have good brushing habits.
"It's starting to get worse. All the soft drinks, Gatorade, the high-acidic
food, the refined carbohydrates. It's easier to do that than it is to eat fruits
and vegetables," says Stevenson
(most beverages sold in supermarkets have a fluoride content equal to that in the water supply where it was made)

Fluoridation fails as America's cavity crisis escalates
Instead of spreading less tooth decay across the land, fluoridation spread dental fluorosis (fluoride-discolored
teeth) into every nook and cranny of America. Even though the CDC
reports up to 60% of adolescents are afflicted with dental fluorosis,
51% of them have cavities.
Opposite to predictions, since fluoridation began in 1945:
Tooth decay crises occur in all fluoridated cities.
New dental professionals were created, e.g. dental therapists.
New dental schools opened.
Dental expenditures have gone up substantially, higher than the inflation rate.
Poor children's cavities are more prevalent, severe, occur earlier and more likely to be untreated.
Despite dental spending growth, 42% percent of adults and 4 million children with dental problems could not afford dental care.
Sanders, in his 2012 report, "Dental Crisis in America," says that
