Web Desk: According to US study, Children who don’t drink fluoridated tap water are more prone to cavities or tooth decay. Moreover, drinking tap water causes to have elevated levels of lead in their blood.
The research was conducted on 16,000 children aged 2 to 19, in University of North Carolina in the US.
Anne E Sanders from the UNC said, “Elevated blood lead levels affect only a small minority of children, but the health consequences are profound and permanent,”
“On the other hand, tooth decay affects one in every two children, and its consequences, such as toothache, are immediate and costly to treat,” Sanders added.
