ABSTRACT
This article reflects on two reports about bottled water: the "Orlando Sentinel" report on the 29% increase in bottled water sales at schools in Volusia County, Florida, and the "Wall Street Journal" report on the warning issued by the American Dental Association that bottled water does not contain enough fluoride to prevent tooth decay. It expresses disbelief that while bottled water is supposed to improve children's health, it offers less protection against tooth decay.
