Letters: Bearing the health care cost

August 17, 2015 The question of who should bear the health care cost of poor and deleterious diet selection is a central issue of our times.  Dr. Andrew Tanchyk’s admonition (Letters, June 1 ADA News) that taxing product (sugar) is not the best solution has merit. But the dental profession must find avenues to turn the tide on dietary strategies that promote inflammation and caries. A healthy masticatory and respiratory system generally is connected to a healthy patient.
