§ Mr. K. Robinson
The administration of fluoride other than by water supplies has been widely studied both here and abroad. Methods studied include tablets, milk supplies, table sale and toothpaste. But no alternative method has been found to have the advantages of fluoridation of water supplies, which, at the approved dosage, is simple, effective and completely safe.
