A New Study Shows Calgary Children's Teeth Got Worse After The City Took Fluoride Out Of Its Water

    Our precious bodily fluids!

    A new study shows that tooth decay among Calgary children has gotten worse since the city took fluoride out of its water supply in 2011.

    Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that, in small doses, helps prevent tooth decay.

    Health Canada estimated that about 45% of Canadians had fluoridated drinking water in 2010. That number has dropped to "less than 30%" as of 2015, according to the group Canadians Opposed To Fluoridation.
