Miriah Killam Writing 122 David Rothgery October 12 2000 The Greatest Case of Scientific Fraud I have been told I have a beautiful smile and I once thought it was true It is big and quick the kind that flashes across a whole face to reveal pearly whites The sad truth is I have become slower to show my Colgate smile as I have watched the most important part of a smile my teeth become less and less dazzling For years I couldnt understand I brushed twice a day flossed once a week stayed away from staining beverages and I didnt smoke My dentist attributed my brittle teeth to the fact that I have some Native American heritage and they are known to have less resistance to sugar As I was offered no other plausible I accepted it and continued my good dental habits Then last year I was browsing through the archives of alternative press releases and one headline in particular caught my attention The article was titled EPA Whistleblowers on Fluoride It stuck in my mind because as a child the same dentist who told me my teeth were naturally more prone to decay prescribed a once a week brushing routine with straight fluoride in combination with my use of nightly fluoride toothpaste He said that I needed to take extra precautions because I moved into an area where the water was not fluoridated My Grandmother told me the dentist was ridiculous she claimed I received the proper amount of fluoride from the foods I ate and the amount that occurred naturally in water I dismissed my Grandmother as behind the times and diligently applied the nasty paste Yet as I read though the article I was confronted with information that contradicted everything I and every other child had been told from birth The article claimed Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century if not of all
