5.0 out of 5 stars.  A good read, June 25, 2006
By Dr. Phil
For someone in the dental profession, this is a good read. I found it thought provoking and subversive. There is a lot of material to consider and hold up to reality. If there is truth to their assertions about fluoride, it would be valuable for many people. I like the fact that they avoid the dry language of pseudo-science. I don't believe everything I read, but this gives food for serious thought. Dentistry can be a dry subject, so their sense of humor makes the subject palatable for a larger audience.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  on nutrition, yes, on fluoride,incredibly shockly misleading, December 30, 2003
By Mark D. Whitaker
I am an environmental sociologist who studies the politics of health.
First of all, FirstBooks is a self-publishing (non peer review) form of publishing.
Second, while I have no bones (pun intented) with his nutritional information, to say that fluoride is a nutritional supplement is incredibly and sadly misleading to parents. It frankly shocks me that such nonsense about fluoride still gets printed without any information about its bad health effects and despite the data that flouride creates dental fluorsis, which is responsible for enamel softening and subsequently tooth decay succeptability.
Third, if you want to know about flouride I recommend Philip Day's Health Wars book, and I recommend this website:
[...]
Fourth, always get a second opinion--particularly about your childrens' future if you are going to start mass medicating and experimenting on them in the womb with fluoride chemicals, that in the United States, come out of nuclear and smelting industries and are dumped into the water to help out private industry remove very hard to remediate chemicals instead of help out your public health.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  'Extracting Wisdom', January 29, 2001
By Sharon Warner
What a treat! This book is like opening a package and finding exactly what you want but also finding it brim-full of other valuable gifts. Written in a personal, conversational style loaded with humor (don't miss even the index, there are a couple of gems in there) and integrity, it's an enjoyable read. The Glenns present the simple, irrefutable facts, scientific basis, and clinical evidence that children having soft, cavity-prone teeth - which we've been led to believe is `normal' - is in truth a birth defect caused by a simple nutritional deficiency. You'll be outraged to discover that this knowledge and the simple, convenient, inexpensive remedy have been denied, withheld, and fought against for over 40 years. Readers find that the Glenns give a proven blueprint to provide children with perfect teeth. You'll also realize that you have just completed a concentrated mini-course in medical-dental-political-socio-economics, history and child rearing - all without even working at it! From HMO's to Hillary Clinton's plan to put doctors and patients in jail for the simple act of choosing each other, to Jenner's work with smallpox vaccination in 1796 and where we really are today re smallpox (this is truly scary stuff- the book is worth it just for Chapter Thirty-Nine alone!) the Glenns provide a wealth of `greater context' that makes all kinds of light bulbs go on. (My own experience in health care administration parallels the Glenns analysis of today's healthcare environment.) An excellent case study of millions made to suffer in order to serve the economic interests of the few. (Can you even imagine if groups - much less our own government - wanted to withhold vitamin C and let children be born with scurvy? withhold calcium and be born with rickets? folic acid and be born with spina bifida?) Read it, spread the word. The Glenns deserve their place in history for their tireless work to provide millions of children the chance to prevent cavities, prevent hours of costly dentist visits (to say nothing of pain), all with a simple element found in nature. I only wish I'd had this information 26 years ago when my own children could have benefited; but you can bet if and when there are ever grandchildren on the way they will forever thank doctors Frances and Darby Glenn!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Nice choppers, December 05, 2000
By Ray Grogan
What greater gift could you give a child than a set of gorgeous teeth? Some kids have them, some kids have little metal caps by the time they are 3 years old. What makes the difference? Dr. Glenn's book tells you all the secrets. It is amazingly easy and it doesn't cost much. All you really need is to know what to do.
After reading a little of the book, you start wondering why no one has told you about this before. Then you get to the part about the laws the dental lobby had passed. Ouch.
You can also learn a lot about your own teeth. Why are some of my teeth beautiful, yet others have fillings from old cavities, and others have white spots?
I am not an impartial observer. Dr. Glenn helped my kids many years ago. I even have a little web site with some pictures of the teeth they helped produce. I'll try to drop them in here. Well, no luck. You can click over to: [...]
The Drs. Glenn also helped former president Bush with some of his grand kids. The Glenns help everyone who asks. They've published lots of results for the medical profession, and now they have come out with this book to help parents.
If you can't afford the book, you can get the medical papers at your library for less than a dollar. You and your doctor can figure it out. The main trick is just getting the right amount of fluoride to your child's teeth at every stage of their development. It gets a wee bit complicated with all the changes (pregnancy to birth, rapid growth in infancy, sometimes getting fluoridated water, sometimes not, etc.) but an average brain can see the solutions. And any good effort will get you far better results than just doing nothing.
I loved Dr. Glenn's book. It is perfect for parents-to-be. (Hmm, and maybe for grandparents if they'd like to help the parents not be "too soon oldt, too late schmart".) You absolutely do not need a medical background to enjoy reading it. There are lots of funny stories that take you way off into distant subjects (like HMO's), but somehow keep you focused on your mission to get your child what he or she needs.
Good luck with your kids. I'll be glad to answer questions. raygrogan@hotmail.com
