The Fluoride Deception (615.925731 BRY)
The fluoride controversy is 50 years old, yet epidemiologic evidence showing harm from fluoride to children is sparse. Many communities (as well as European countries) do not fluoridate their water. Their children may have more caries and their dentists more work, but is this a significant public health problem? Overall this is an interesting, thought-provoking, and eye-opening work.
