    July 1, 2002The "Fuzzy Math" of Fluoride Promotion By Paul Connett, PhD ( Many of you may have probably heard the term "fuzzy math" before. It is a term used to describe a somewhat controversial method of teaching math where the answers do not have to be EXACTLY right. But at the very least, they are supposed to be close.

    Rose Kang describes that whenever a ceiling fan starts to spin, she vomits. After a few hours around any fan, she says, her cheeks start to swell and her head begins to pound.

The daily newspaper in Ulsan, one of Korea’s largest cities, wrote...
