By Matthew D. Shepherd, Ph.D., Margaret M. Grubiak | September 01, 2000

Community water fluoridation has been and continues to be an important public health concern for Kansas communities. This study was undertaken to determine whether community water fluoridation is associated with increased cancer mortality rates in Kansas communities.
