The Town Without a Toothache - Deaf Smith County - Texas?

Why did Deaf Smith County have the lowest rate of tooth decay in the United States (1940's-)? Was it the Magnesium, the Fluoride the k2? Price found this to be the richest source of k2 when testing places around the country for his activator-x. This is correlation, not causation; but why do you think these people barely knew tooth decay, they ate grains as far as I know.

Thank-you for your input Holly. I was surprised when while looking up Deaf Smith County I ran across an article on the WAP site where "Price found that the Activator X concentration... were highest in Deaf Smith County, Texas," - http://www.westonaprice.org/fat-soluble-activators/x-factor-is-vitamin-k2 This is a dentist who travelled the world and came to the conclusion that Vitamins A (retinol), D (d3) and K2 (activator-x) were responsible for natives' pristine health and perfect bone structure. So I found Deaf Smith County either an example of evidence or a big coincidence.

I grew up there. In "a town without a toothache" and I have a mouthful of cavities as did most others. In addition all of the fluoride caused fluorosis for many (brown staining of the teeth). I no longer live there but just found out I have hypothyroidism. I wonder if that too is more prevalent for those residents as well because of all of the fluoride. Good to know about the K2 though. That helps
