This is just a fact.
On 5Live yesterday there was a report on the state of kids teeth and the lack of kids going to the dentist etc. The report was based on Portsmouth (probably not the most representative sample, it being a shithole of depravity) and they were chatting to folk in the street. One mother had a 6-year-old girl who'd had 15 teeth removed due to them being rotten. When asked why this was, the mother replied that when her daughter was a baby/toddler all she would drink was strawberry milkshake and all she'd eat were polo mints. This girl now has just one tooth on her upper jaw.
Words fail me.
