  • My guess is medical research. Researchers and Dr's have discovered safer ways of doing things and way to prolong life, in both children and adults.

    But yeah, things have changed from when I was a kid. I'm only 23 and I never heard of any of these issues growing up.
    Fluoride or No fluoride (www.fluoridalert.org)
    Vaccinate or Not vaccinate (www.thinktwice.com)
    And many more. We're all just becoming more knowledgable.
