World War 2 oral health history cards


SKU: N/A Category:


Before fluoride, tooth decay was so bad in America that 15 out of every 100 young men couldn’t meet the minimal standard for serving in the military: 6 opposing teeth.

What does that standard look like that so many young men didn’t meet? Fluoride Exposed commissioned artist Michelle Vorce to show us. This happy young man would have been deemed ready to serve. A little different than the typical cartoon 1940s guys!
