The following articles all support my statement that fluoride helps prevent cavities. I tried to pick short articles.

The problem is that scientific journals are boring to read and blogs are easy to read. This has led to the emergence of an anti-fluoride campaign, a belief that the CDC and similar organizations is a hoax. I'd rather not fight a propaganda war; make your own judgment.
