The Flouride Wars offers a witty retelling of a highly debated scientific conflict in our past. It contains a variety of anecdotes regarding the history of tooth decay and the start of the use of fluoride, as well as the beginning of water fluoridation in the Unites States. This reader-friendly assessment of the best current thinking effectively portrays the mechanisms by which fluoride reduces tooth decay, its effectiveness and safety, and the credibility of the health-risk claims of the anti-fluoride movement.
