Rothman KJ, Velez H, Glass RL, Mejia R, Espinal F. Dental caries and soil contents of trace metals in two Colombian villages. J Dent Res. 1972 Nov 1;51(6):1686.

The article presents notes from research into dental caries and soil content in trace metals between the populations of two Colombian villages. Soil samples were examined to determine the level of various trace metals in soil and if they were associated with a difference in caries experience. Results support an inverse relationship between vanadium and dental caries.
