WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27: TREATING WATER

Profile America Wednesday, January 27th.  This week 65 years ago, Grand Rapids, Michigan, became the first U.S. city to treat its water supply with fluoride.  Now, two-thirds of Americans live in areas where the water is fluoridated, including 43 of the nation's top 50 cities.  The American Dental Association credits the fluoridation of drinking water with a dramatic decrease in tooth decay.  But even after six decades, the practice still has its critics, who claim that its benefits are exaggerated and its toxicity underplayed.  There are 812,000 dental offices across the U.S.  Taking care of their dental health costs Americans spend an average of about $287 a year.  You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, now  preparing for the 2010 Census on April 1st.
