  1. Other things can come into play, too. When I was growing up, the water we drank was nearly pure. It lacked the minerals children need as they are growing. The National Park System (I grew up in a US National Park) only let the parents know that they should give their children mineral supplements, when I was 12 years old. By that time, the damage was done. All three of my siblings and all of the people I grew up with had teeth with exceptionally weak and thin enamel on our teeth, as I did. The result was that I needed extractions and dentures by the time I was 30. The same was true of both sisters and my brothers.
