UK Against Fluoridation

USA - Wisconsin 90% fluoridated

State officials said new ways must be found to provide dental care to Wisconsin's poor because 70% of children who were eligible for Medicaid or BadgerCare in a recent year could not get it. Studies have found that few Wisconsin dentists accept Medicaid patients, and the problem is worst in rural areas.
"Dental decay is the No. 1 chronic disease of childhood, particularly among low-income children who often don't have access to a dentist," Doyle said in a statement. Children with dental problems often can't eat or are too embarrassed to smile, interfering with their ability to sleep and to be ready to learn in school, Doyle said.
