Iowa compared to Kenya

The ADA (American Dental Association) is kind enough to give me a free membership as a missionary/volunteer international dentist. With that membership I appreciate that JADA sends to me in Kenya their monthly journal.

Above are research pictures depicting children in Iowa "suffering" from moderate to mild Fluorosis of the teeth maybe caused by excess fluoride found in infant formula.

In comparison a typical patient of mine in Kijabe, Kenya suffering from severe Fluorosis surely caused by excessive fluoride in the well water due to the enriched soil of the great Rift Valley.

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you should write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but
generally folks don't speak about such issues.
To the next! All the best!!

A sudden tear can cause substantial leakage through the
mitral valve. Your body may not even know that bacteria is there until
it starts to cause infections somewhere else in your body.
