1. 1 advent In economics, one usually observes time sequence that show diverse styles of qualitative habit, either normal and abnormal, symmetric and uneven. There exist various views to provide an explanation for this sort of habit in the framework of a dynamical version. the conventional trust is that the time evolution of the sequence could be defined via a linear dynamic version that's exogenously disturbed by way of a stochastic technique.

12 Arguably, Page 19 one reason why studies of naturally fluoridated communities cannot be used to draw ironclad conclusions about artificially fluoridated communities is that most waters that have high natural levels of fluoride also have high levels of other minerals such as calcium and magnesium, and also contain trace elements such as strontium and boron. It is difficult to rule out that the high mineral content of so-called hard water, which is usually associated with high natural fluoride levels, may contribute to the resistance of teeth to decay.

In the mid 1970s, John Yiamouyiannis and Dean Burk joined the debate when they made dramatic claims about a link between fluoridation and cancer, and, since then, this issue has been a continuing and contentious one. Yiamouyiannis is the most prominent opponent who is a scientist in the United States today. Another side to the opponents' case is a critique of the evidence that fluoridation enormously reduces tooth decay. Waldbott, Exner, and others introduced this point, but the earliest comprehensive critique was presented by Philip Sutton, an Australian dental researcher, in 1959.
