After 60+ years of water fluoridation reaching 70% on public waters supplies, virtually 100% via food and beverages, and after 50+ years of fluoridated toothpaste and 40+ years of dentist-applied fluoride treatments along with fluoridated dental floss, mouth rinses, gum, pills, drops, varnish, foam, gels, cements, filling material and more, tooth decay in America is a growing disgrace and embarrassment because fluoride does not reduce tooth decay but does make huge amounts of money for US corporations. The millions of dollars spent on fluoridation scheming, planning, meetings, research, legislator palm-greasing could be better used to feed our hungry children so their teeth don't decay in the first place
