Fluoride and IQ: Information on a recent study conducted in Mexico.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention provides extensive information about the science, practice, and benefits of community water fluoridation.
In 2014, the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics published Fluoride and Dental Caries Prevention in Children, an easy to understand, comprehensive resource on the benefits and proper use of fluoride for caries prevention in children.
The Campaign for Dental Health provides extensive and excellent educational resources on community water fluoridation.
A study, published June 2018 in the Journal of Dental Research, reaffirms the benefit of community water fluoridation (CWF). The study found that where 75% or more of the population in a community has access to CWF, there was “a substantial caries-preventive benefit . . . for U.S. children and that the benefit is most pronounced in primary teeth.”
The CDC has developed downloadable materials to help educate audiences on the value of community water fluoridation.
