- Fluoridation of water has not been shown to reduce the incidence of cavities. Topical fluoride (e.g., toothpastes and fluoride rinses) has been shown to work. Ingestion of fluoride has not. If you are aware of any evidence to the contrary, I would welcome the opportunity to read it and share it with my readers.
- Here today, still here tomorrow. Fluoride doesn't magically disappear from water once it has been added. Its presence and accumulation has profound implications for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
- Fluoride is poisonous. Relatively low concentrations have been shown, conclusively, to have detrimental effects on human development.
- It's impossible to control the dose. People drink different amounts of water, so the fluoride dose cannot be regulated.
- It's unethical to force a medication onto people. Even if it was beneficial (and no one, in two years of asking has been able to give me a single reference stating that it is), fluoridation isn't something you get to choose or not choose.
There you have it, in a nutshell. I'll give you facts and figures later. Very few countries fluoridate water... I hope holdouts like the U.S. will come around sooner rather than later on this issue.
