Urgent Bulletin: Study Shows Fluoride ‘May Not Prevent Cavities’

The Cochrane Collaboration uncovered one interesting study in particular.

This study is one of many that prove fluoride has no effect, or potentially a more detrimental affect, on tooth decay in children. Read more about this ground breaking study.
