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.
