Australia is one of the few countries that still fluoridates it's water. This is despite minimal conclusive evidence that it assists regular fluoride toothpaste use in the prevention of tooth decay or gum disease.

This is a spicy one so we've devoted two episodes to it. Part one features a break-down of the history of fluoridation, which is WILDLY FASCINATING, and a look at the available evidence for the efficacy on tooth decay prevention.
Tune in next week where we interview dentist Dr. Lewis Ehrlich and investigate the conspiracy theories around fluoride's effect on the pineal gland.
