Sample Test Questions
1.Studies are taking place to assess the benefits to dental health of adding fluoride to drinking
water, a process known as mass medication. The Health Minister has urged consideration of
fluoridation, particularly in deprived areas where dental care is poor. Fluoride can occur naturly
in the water because of fluoride containing minerals. Fluoride, if in the water, improves dental
health by up to 50 percent. Even so, fluoridation should not take place. A campaign leader
opposed to fluoridation has spoken of her experiences of living in a fluoridated area of the USA.
She experienced feelings of apathy and depression; her 2 year old son showed autistic
tendencies and had white flecks on his teeth. These symptoms disappeared when they
returned home from the USA
Which one of the following is an underlying assumption of the argument above?
A.Mass medication is always wrong.
B.Fluoridation of water is a person's only source of fluoride.
