Rapid City, South Dakota, adds fluoride to its water supply:
"'We're here only a week, and the needs are excessive,' she said. 'We were finding that the kids are totally receptive to us and the majority of them have never seen a dentist.'"
Tooth decay: a sad national epidemic caused by lack of dentists who care and not a fluoride need. Extensive lobbying, political maneuvering and expensive public relations campaigns by organized dentistry sway legislators to add fluoride chemicals into public water supplies, 2/3 of which already are, to benefit those whom dentists neglect. Protecting their high-salaried monopoly, dentists lobby against dental groups offering quality, cheaper fixes. Fluoride product makers benefit most.
