ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the fluoridation of water in the U.S. According to the American Dental Association, fluoride is nature's cavity fighter. As with other nutrients, fluoride is safe and effective when used and consumed properly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared that the fluoridation of water is one of the ten great public-health achievements of the 20th century. Anti-fluoridationists have made their presence felt everywhere, including in the most ecotrendy locales. Dentists concede that fluoride might be better as a topical application than as a substance to swallow.
