Drinking Water (ballyscanlon, Getty Images)
I like fluoride in my toothpaste, but I'm opposed to fluoridation of public drinking water and prefer not to drink it. Even if fluoride hasn't been added to your water, it may contain fluoride anyway. If you don't want to drink fluoridated water, you have a couple of options. You can buy bottled water that has been purified using reverse osmosis or distillation. If neither of those purification processes is specifically listed on the package, assume the water is fluoridated. Your other option is to remove the fluoride from water yourself. You can't boil it out -- that actually concentrates the fluoride in the remaining water. Most home water filters won't take out fluoride. The types of filters that do remove fluoride are activated alumina filters, reverse osmosis units, and distillation setups. Of course, you ingest fluoride through more than just water. If you're trying to cut back on your intake, I've put together a list of ways you can reduce your fluoride exposure.

As a side note, when you're buying bottled water, keep in mind 'distilled water' is not always suitable for use as drinking water. There may be nasty impurities in distilled water that are bad for you. So, using a product labeled 'distilled drinking water' is fine. Drinking any old distilled water... not such a great plan.

Odd… because when I lived in NYC, not only did the water taste better but my teeth were in better shape too. Now that I live in PA where they think that flouride is this HORRIBLE thing, the water tastes like… well… you-know-what and I can’t even go 6 months without getting a cavity!

Now I’m pregnant and GUESS WHAT??? I NEED to drink water with fluoride in it. How that’s going to happen? I don’t know. I hate this state and I hate the idea that people decided that something that’s actually NOT harmful to us and is actually BENEFICIAL to your teeth and bones was wrong. This just goes to show you that the squeaky wheel gets the grease… no matter if they’re wrong or right!

I dont know were your getting your info from, but flouride is an industrial waste product and is even more toxic than lead. you should NOT give anything with flouride in it to babies, children, or when your pregnaunt!

Flouride replaces the calcium your teeth and bones use witch make them brittle, thats the reason why our teeth rot faster, and our bones eventualy weaken causing arthritis.

Saliva helps reminerize teeth naturaly, having a decent calcium intake helps. Salt can kill bacteria as easily as any toothpaste. Also flouride has been shown to damage the brain.

I think its time to stop being ignorant(ignoring everything we think is stupid or dont like or are afraid of) and start being open minded, paying attention to the world around us and whats going on.

Do your own research! Experiance is Knowledge, everything else is just information.

have you ever looked at all the properties of flouride its not that great you might want too wikapedia it another thing flouride has now been proven not too prevent cavities you might want to do some more research before making comments like that i only say this because i care for peoples Health

Do you work for the aluminum industry? Why do you ‘need’ fluoride in it? Do you know fluoride is a by product of aluminum production? Research it yourself. Fluoride doesn’t help with bones either.

(5) Tony says:

You know your teeth might be doing fine with the fluoride in it but think about it. Do you eat small amounts of tooth paste all day everyday….Too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing. You are injesting fluoride all day everyday. Ok yes good for your teeth but what about in the long run for you body. Prety sure your body wasn’t ment to take in all that fluoride. I think bottled water isn’t good for you at all. Who knows what they are able to put in there with the water and you not know about it. Think about it when you buy a bottle of water you think ur drinking water, but a company has to put it in there who knows what could be in ther. Too much fluoride is a BAD thing. You should find other means to protect your teeth.

(7) Demitri says:

Wow, I feel sorry for you’re baby. You should really be careful who you pay attention to healthwise. Fluoride does not naturally occur in water that humans have been used to drinking for so many ages, so why would adding it all of a sudden be a healthier choice? Be careful what the mainstream media says because corporations do not exactly care for the well being of the public and will tell you to do anything that slowly kills you, just as they justify taking prescription medications for any mental “disorder” or imbalance. Fluoride calcifies the pineal gland. That’s the part of your brain that connects your left brain to your right brain, your logical thinking to your abstract thinking. Imagine how well you brain would work without that! I think you should look into holistic and herbal nutrition and health. And be careful who you read, because they may just be a supporter of eugenics, euthanasia, and other sorts of Nazi population control!

You are obviously not looking after your teeth as well. You shouldnt get cavities in your teeth of you brush after you eat and you floss once a day. Obviously a wise thing to do would be to stay away from bad foods and drinks which rot your teeth too!!! It has nothing to do with the fluroide in your water!!! Regarding the pregnant thing, your doctor should be advising you to take calcium tablets. All woman go through this issue when pregnant. Do some research yourself before you believe everything you are told!!!

Hello Jenn,
I noticed you posted this back in 2009. I wanted to reply once I read your comment. Flouride has never been beneficial for human use. It also breaks down the density in our teeth. Flouride can cause damage the reproductive system, destroy organs, destruction of cells, thyroid complications, cancer promoting, etc. I repeat, fouride is not benefical for ANY part of the body, internally, and externally!

(15) KeeperofTruths says:

@Jenn. The reason you enjoy the taste of fluoridated water, is because you have been so used to it in the city. Coming down on a drug addiction has a similar affect on food, and water. Fluoride is used in all toxic drugs, commercial processed foods and even the bottles labeled natural. The fluoride for your teeth are actually worse than non fluoride toothpaste, the reason you have cavities can play many roles, because we don’t know your eating habits or living situation, we cannot confirm or prove how you get your cavities. This should of remained from the post you put, since it is your own bias, and that results in it being just an opinion. Fluoride was the number one toxin that was used in the Hitler March and Concentration Camp Era, they would use it to soften the brains receptors from experiencing emotions or outbursts. In the process they discovered over a short period of time with massive amounts of fluoride, diseases and cancers would spurt. This would create a massive depression and those who escaped the camps, their gene pool continued with toxins to the new borns. After the Hitler times, they had no idea what to do with all the toxins, so they started fluoridating everything, and creating there own laboratories and scientists, to show that everything is fine. When in fact, 90% of those scientists are now dead, and the fact sheets are passed on with lies attached. This goes along with diet drinks and soy products. Ask yourself this, how many have died from natural foods and herbs? now count how many died from synthetic processed foods, and beverages and FDA approved drugs?, Thank you for your short outburst in despite of the situation, you are not a scientists who is seeking out truths, in fact, you are subject to your own opinion, and because of your irrational logic, you will sit in that pot of boiling water, until your Government tells you that you are being cooked.

You should look up the truth about fluoride… It is not as harmless as you think and is by no means a necessary substance for our survival. It is in fact the base for some of the most toxic substances on earth (rat poison is sodium fluoride, tooth paste can cause delirious fevers and death if ingested). Fluoridation of public drinking water has been used as a weapon in Iraq.
Educate yourselves before you condemn others views on safety.

(18) John says:

Jen I live in Pennsylvania and I’m really GLAD they don’t fluoridate our water. Why do pregnant women need to drink fluoride if we’ve been surviving for THOUSANDS OF YEARS without ingesting an UNNATURAL CHEMICAL???

Darec, above me, is right. You need to look up the truth on fluoride, it is not harmless and it IS a VERY dangerous, toxic chemical and your teeth are probably all messed up from all the fluoride you drank in New York, it just took a few years to catch up with you.

Flouridation is a canard of Andrew Carnagie to get rid of waste material from the Bessemer process of smelting steel.

The gov’t made him get it out of his hazmat refuse,so having a study done,he formulated Crest Toothpaste facetiously as an unparalleled dentrifrice albeit an unstudied toxic waste.

Including the FDA and Dentists,a lot of people got envelopes on this one.(Censored Stories Annual)

(20) nyscof says:

The best way to remove fluoride from all of our lives is through political activism. If you remove fluoride from your personal water source, you will probably still ingest fluoridation chemicals via supermarket and restaurant foods made with tap water.

Contact you local legislators and water companies and tell them to stop the fluoride. If everyone did this, fluoridation would probably stop because of the political pressure.

About 80 communities stopped fluoridation in 2008 and 2009 because people forced the issue.

And tell congress to stop fluoridation here: http://congress.FluorideAction.Net

I think this article and the one that explains how to reduce fluoride exposure are missing the biggest and easiest way to reduce it… stop using toothpaste that contains it. If you are trying to reduce exposure and you are using toothpaste that contains it then you are an idiot.

(27) Taracy says:

Did you know that you just overdosed on the EPA suggested limits of flouride this morning when you ate cereal, milk and a glass of orange juice for breakfast? This is way more flouride than what’s in a tube of toothpaste and you are ingesting it, not just rinsing it out of your mouth. Because flouride is added to drinking water, it is in all our processed foods too and they don’t even have to report it on the nutrition label. In addition, the chemical they add to our water is a byproduct of fertilizers and pesticides. I like to think that the toothpaste is using a pharmaceutical grade flouride instead, but I don’t really know for sure. Either way it’s important for us to unite and say no to unnecessary flouride in our drinking water. It’s effects occur overtime so you won’t even notice weakened teeth and bones, yellow or brown spots on your teeth, especially in kids. It also may cause ADHD and displaces iodine from your thyroid ultimately causing cancer in later years. Hmmmm you think preventing one or two cavities over your lifetime is worth the risk?
Like Teeny said, it’s your choice to use flouride toothpaste, but we really need to speak out about it being forced into our drinking water.

Yeah Jen is a moron. To think that for thousands of years we lived and had children without ingesting this wonder chemical…..how on earth did humanity survive?

But in any case….if fluoride was the only toxin we were being exposed to it would be no big deal. It’s only a big deal because we’re getting blasted from all sides from the very moment we wake up in the morning. Alot of it is simply in the air we breathe so there’s not much we can do about it but I’d like to think we all should care about doing what we can to minimize our collective exposure. And it would seem like fluoride is literally useless so why not x that one out?

water flouridation is really bad, flouride is the main ingredient in any poison, when u go to the store and u find ANY poison, u we’ll see in every label that the main ingredient is flouride. so y r they giving us flouride? r we like rats and the governments wants to kill us? idk…. maybe…… come to think about, they r thinking of making a 80% poppulation decrease in the world. maybe we r like rats. and yes i know to most of u who see this i am wrong? but y? is it because i aint a doctor? cause im not on TV? well guess what. i am a doctor and my perscription to u is to look up flouride researches made in europe not the us and then tell me im wrong. just rememebr just cause the news says something it doesnt mean its true. dont listen to “facts” other people have put in place for u. u do the reseach and u make up ur decision, all the information is there for everyone to find. its up 2 u to make the connection. alot of this will make more sense when u wake up and see that ordanary ppl like u and me arent ment to know whats really goes up on top with high government official who rule the world.

when u wake up tomorrow and act as if its the first day of ur life. make everything seem new to u. and then u will see how much this world is in trouble? y do they put chemicals on animals for food and on fruits? do they not taste good? do they not already have what we need to live? how did humanity live this long without thse chemicals and now that there here y r they causeing so much problem? just open urs, knolegde is ur best friend is this world

I have a house filtration system, removed the noxious chlorine, heavy metals and fumes, I no longer smell chlorine at all but I am considering also getting another reverse osmosis system installed for drinking. Every bit of every thing adds up, tip the scale and it may be too late.. Chemtrails are seriously adding a lot of aluminum and barium to everything.

My son has been researching fluoride and has found that it is linked to lower IQs in our kids. That it might (like everything else) be linked to cancer and numerous other diseases.

New studies are questioning the belief that it helps prevent tooth decay. They are saying it doesn’t really help and may cause harm. But I don’t need a study to tell me that, I personally noticed that every time I start using a fluoride toothpaste/mouthwash my problems with my teeth get worse.

I resent the fact that we do not get a choice about it being added to our drinking water. They should stop adding it and let those who for some reason want it in their water could buy bottled water with it. (Bottled water without it isn’t easy to find in my area)

Here are a couple of links to sites that give out info on this

Its wrong for us to be mass medicated, they are giving us no choice, very scary i do believe its a part of NWO.. we are the only ones who if we stand together can make a change and not stand by and just let them do this to us, my biggest concern besides the water, is the amount of it we are getting from out drinks, and food that we buy, i dont use floride toothpaste or have it in my water but im concerned with the food and drinks i consume, i havent used floride for years and my teeth i think are healthier then before.. i also think sugar is the other posion they are using, infowars, has some great infomation on alot of topics.. glad there are so many people waking up!!

Jenn, you are extremely uninformed. Fluoride was labeled by the EPA, you know that organization in the United States that investigates health issues? Yeah, well they and these things they hire called scientists actually got together and decided that Fluoride IS a harmful substance, and DOESN’T produce any evidence of benefits for tooth decay. YOU need to do your own research and realize most of the calls that come into poison control are from fluoride toothpastes and parents forcing it down their child’s throat. Read the warning on the box, and let go of your ignorance.

Its pretty easy to control a nation of submissive idiots. Good idea on the government’s part in terms of control. Unfortunately, it’s working, and it’s working quite well. There is nothing any of us can do about it, either. Sucks to live in America, maybe I’ll move somewhere else when I’m older. It isn’t just fluoride in water (which was, ironically, discussed by Hitler in terms of the fall of America and finding a way to control the populous). So unfortunately there is nothing to do but leave; you can write to your senator or whatever all you’d like but nothing is going to change. The entire nation will never unite and all agree that fluoridation of water is a horrendous crime, simply because not enough people care/ understand/ want to spend time understanding. F*** this country and most people in it.

I used to live in a location in Texas that had naturally occuring flouride in the water. As a kid, it was possible to see which families drank bottled water.

work to mess up a persons thyroid.

I am researching fluoride for a storyline for a TV show I am writing. Specifically, how to get rid of it in municipal water or otherwise. Seems there is no inexpensive way to do it. I knew fluoride was really bad, but I did not know HOW bad until I got into the research tonight. This is depressing beyond measure right now how we have all been such pawns.

(51) javier says:

HI, I read a comment by a chemist that says Hydrofluoric acid forms when you have some sodium fluoride in water, by means of Hydrogen bonds between Fluoride and Hydrogen. I think this is impossible because Hydrofluoric acid is a ionic compound, (like Fluoride Sodium of Chloride Sodium) not formed by weak Hydrogen bonds. If HF was formed, then each time someone uses fluoridated toothpaste on his teeth, some Hydrofluoric acid would be formed in his mouth, getting burns on soft tissue. Anyhow, if it does happens, it is another reason for NOT to use fluoridated toothpaste.

(58) Josh says:

When one begins to look through the eyes of his Spirit, and not through that of the physical body, the reality of fluoridation becomes clear. The pineal gland is the most mysterious, and yet most powerful part of our brain that we have yet to understand. It is responsible for many things from dreaming, to the activation of Spirituality, and some even believe a doorway between dimensions. When you realize that fluoride crystallizes and in the pineal gland while eventually rendering it useless, then you will understand the reality of why it is actually there in the first place, and what the powers at work are attempting to achieve through those means.

We have lived on this Earth as a collective Human mind long enough to understand that fluoride was never in our celestial waters in the first place, yet many of you seem to think that it’s necessary at this point to fluoridate our only source of nourishing water.

If you’re so worried about your teeth, brush twice a day with non-fluoridated toothpaste, buy some floss, and use them! But if you’re that worried about a physical aspect of your body, yet don’t care for your Spiritual body whatsoever, then you have far more to worry about than your pearly whites. Namaste.

A Flouride Ion, on the other hand, must not be like it’s elemental counterpart, but instead be greater than 100 degrees Celcius for it to precipitate, right? So what is it’s boiling point and why? According to WolframAlpha, the molar heat capacity is negative. Does that mean it’s temperature increases as energy is taken away and decreases as energy is added?

Flouride is a waste product of fertilizer and aluminum plants…there is no biological need to be exposed to flouride…it causes dental and skeletal flourisis.similar to. osteporosis…it damages your internal organs and causes hardening of the arteries…you should not bathe in it or cook with it nor drink or brush with it…The only reason it got put in water is because the fertilizer and aluminum plants were prohibited from dumping it in the land fills…..flouride has not been proven to prevent cavaties… the plants had to pay off people to have it added to the water in order to dispose of the waste product called flouride…now your health is paying the price….

Drinking sodas, and eating citrus eats the enamel from your teeth…causing cavities.

I just recently did my own research on slit of things . It all started from zeitgeist . I watch many other videos like esoteric agenda and kymatica. I always questioned things but those videos made me think individually and not just because my group of peers believe the so called “experts”. As far as this flouride issue . I’m still digging deeper on the topic but judging from what I learned I don’t want any part of it . For me ur my children . It’s to much free information to be blind to facts today . Food water and many other things our being controlled when no one should have the power to say what’s right without collective thought and research . Thanks to all the people that posted links and gave information on the subject . It helps out tremendously.

Just wanted to correct John, Flouride is not the most dangerous checmical known to man.

Sodium cyanide

These are just a few that you might have in contact in your daily life…antifreeze Ethylene glycol even nicotine (if it enters the bloodstream) could be on this list.

and these are just chemicals….not considered were proteins (sorry Botulinum toxin) nor elements/radioactive isotopes (my apologies to Polonium-210)

(68) Robert says:

My real issue is that we’re being medicated without our permission. The water company doesn’t say “do you want the flouridated water or not?” If you live where the water is flouridated you have no choice.

There’s no proven benefit to ingesting flouride with your water, that isn’t more effectively accomplished with a good flouride toothpaste applied topically to your teeth. If you believe flouride is not a health risk, this is the way to insure you’re getting flouride where you want it.

If you want flouride applied to your teeth, just buy flouridated toothpaste and have at it. Of course there is a poison control warning on that tube that no one seems to be too concerned about.

There is some very well researched information on this website http://www.fluoridealert.org/ – take the time to review it and you may change your mind about guzzling flouridated water – of course you’ll have to buy a very expensive filtering system or distilled drinking water to avoid it.

Anyone saying fluoride is not harmful is an idiot and has no clue what they are talking about. The government has knowingly been adding this to our water supply for close to 100 years. Harvard University just release a study CONFIRMING the negative effects of Fluoride on humans. Once the damage of fluoride is done, its irreversible. You can help you kids though. Take fluoride way and warn them never to ingest it in any form. They will be more intelligent and have vastly fewer health issues in their lives. Facts are facts. Your government has been controlling and killing you all along.

(73) Sophia says:

Fluoride, in excess, can be bad for you , here is an example :
I just went to the dentist, and they gave me the usual fluoride treatment on my teeth . . . I noticed, when I got home, that an excessive amount of fluride was on the roof of my mouth (I had to scrape it off with my toothbrush) . . .
A day or so after, I had a metal-like, salty taste in my mouth, when I ate several kinds of food; I can’t get rid of that taste, when I eat . . . today is day #11.
I looked this up on the Internet, and there is indeed such a thing as too much fluoride, and it does give you my symptoms and even worse symptoms. It is like being poisoned. I am lucky that I do not have the worse symptoms, but I will call my dentist this week.

So do not think a lot of fluoride is good for you; it is not!

(74) Tori says:

NO! Flouride has been proven to cause cancer and also to calcify the pineal gland of the brain. If you are pregnant, you should NOT be using flouride. There is also mercury in amalgam fillings that are in most of our teeth. Mercury too is toxic and should be removed, but they told us that was safe too. BOTH WERE LIES! Once you do some research about this, begin to think about who would do this and why. Then look for the answers to those questions. The whole world is sitting in a box on your desk. Go. Learn. Evolve.

Wow, this spans over a number of months or years but it is so good.
How dare they medicate our water and food against our will, imagine of we went to the dr and he tried to force us to take some drug, we could sue him/her so why cant we here. Now there is talk to put lithium in the water to calm the public down.. probably so as we will not object to what they do.. Now they want to make manufactures cut right back on salt and of course it will be replaced with another drug for taste sake, and guys I do not know if you realise it or not, cutting back on salt is as bad as making us take fluoride it is another false teaching, and yes tooo much is bad but too little is just as bad. God would not have said that we are the salt of the earth if it was bad..
But take a look at thScientists, Doctors and Researchers warn of fluoridated water dangersese sites,
Notice we are not told of this and these other ones eh..

Or leaders are a bunch of greedy liars who are only pawns of the real people who run this world, Bankers. Bankers run everything, and it has been documented many times that a large decrease in population is ideal for them. They do not care about us, our leaders do not care are you.. Obama, Bush, is does not matter. They are not out to make our lives better, it is just the opposite. Sad but true. I am just glad Not everyone is the country is Blind to everythng that goes on. btw here is a new study on the subject done by HARVARD.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/harvard-study-confirms-fluoride-reduces-childrens-iq.html Maybe you should do a little research Jenn, or you can keep believing everything mainstream media and your politicians tell you, go ahead and drink your Flouride and get your “Flue Vaccine” and take your Pills for every little problem you have because that is what they want you to do. You would doom you child just because you neglect to do a little research and are content simply trusting the people in power because “They are only out for our best interests, they would never do anything to harm us, Nobody can be that evil or greedy.” Give me a break.

Uh, you want flouride in your toothpaste but not your drinking water? Poison is poison, and I don’t want it in my toothpaste, drinking water or shower water (it’s absorbed readily through your skin when showering or bathing, or brushing your teeth). So even drinking water filters (the ones that actually can filter flouride, most don’t) only solve one of the problems. Read the section in this link about how flouride (which was a waste product) came to be in our water supply and toothpaste, very scary stuff:


Or maybe some of the health problems it can cause, like neurological damage, reduced IQ, bone cancer, among many other horrors. After all it is a poison that is slowly killing us!

Wake up and smell the coffee (if you still have some brain function left after a lifetime of flouride poisoning)!

I grew up believing and hearing the fluoride propaganda. In the 80′s & 90′s I opposed removing fluoride in the water. Now I’m in my forties with three kids, and have been suffering from chronic joint inflammation, pain, and fatigue for two decades. Thank God I’m open to new info, since I now know that fluoride is one of the major reasons for chronic diseases since it competes with iodine (as does bromine & chlorine) which is necessary for proper thyroid function. A poorly functioning thyroid is the primary cause of a myriad of chronic diseases, from cancers to fibromyalgia, arthritis, and heart disease, and too many to list. I am so angry now I was fed this lie and that these jerks are bent on poisoning us for profit still!!!!

But we’re not ALL asleep. And I am one person who is not as well as quite a few of my friends are fully aware of the chemicals and gmos they are putting in our food and water.

On another note and in reply to the OP. I live in PA, found this page in doing research about fluoride in our state and more specifically in what townships because I would like to know if it is in our tap water and necessary for me to buy a filter for it while I purchase one for all the other junk in our water.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that PA is one of the smart states. However there are cities and townships that do use it. Still not sure if my township does, but I will find out.

It appears that many of these comments are set up to make those that favor fluoridation seem more educated than the opposition. This is the typical case, many “smarter” people enjoy tricking other, more trusting individuals.

It is likely they work for companies (they all own stock in each other, ergo, the monopoly) that stand to have a substantial short-term benefit from that portrayal, they lack the wisdom to realize that it’s worse for everyone in the long run.

Hold fast, brothers and sisters of the web, Avoid fluoride. They probably avoid it themselves and are lying so they have an advantage over you. They used fluoride to weaken the mental capabilities of Jewish prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. They would have you be their slaves.

(102) Chaos says:

Flouride Is a waste byproduct, and is a major ingredient in rat poison. But most Doctors just look at us as human lab rats anyway, I understand that. Besides its use in rat poison, it has no other use, besides to slowly kill us. It shuts down and calcifies only our pineal gland, not our teeth, or bones. It destroys our brain function, gives us glass jaws, and reeks havoc on all our major systems and organs. Starting with being sick, and never really feeling better, or “up to par”. It begins its murderous mission in the nervous system, then after another dosage, it begins to creep its way to the blood stream, and hitchhikes on theback of blood cells, disquising itself from the immune system, which is worthless against it to begin with, and hogging all the space on the cell from our little buddy oxygen. From there it enters the endocrine system, next the limbic, and so on. You still brush your teeth with that stuff? No wonder people are still turning up with cavities and sensitive teeth, even with a healthy dental hygeine regiment. Also, there is still flouride in bottled water, there is nothing you can do about it. We are being poisoned, silenced, handed cancer, mineral deficiencies, and being genetically stripped. All for the all mighty buck, and I have nothing against doctors, except when they give incorrect information.

This isn’t about fluoride. You folks who are so sure that water fluoridation is so toxic are all scientists, right? Oh, no? Really? Because the way it should work is that we HIRE experts to do research and make decisions that we don’t have the time to do because we’re experts in another field–at OUR job. So, do you trust scientists and the scientific method?
Apparently not.
How can you when the majority of the data suggest that water fluoridation is safe for the vast majority of folks, and helps the underserved population that would fall through the cracks of the public health system? You really are the “me” generation–good god–thinking only of yourselves. Yes, fluoride is not for every single person–there are a few outliers that can’t tolerate its effects, but for the vast majority it is very beneficial.
Science is NOT A LIBERAL CONSPIRACY. We look at data and draw conclusions. You can argue we need more data on something, sure. But stating categorically that fluoride is a “toxic poison” and calling it good just shows that you need to leave the heavy science to folks who are expert at it! Jesus, people, really–I don’t work on my own car, I trust engineers who build the bridges I drive on… Sure, the scientific method fails very rarely in the short term, but is the best method we have to further human knowledge. Back off on the paranoia, puh-lease!

Sorry to get so fired up earlier. I’m from Portland, and we had an epic fluoride battle here last year, and everyone’s got a case of PTSD over it all. Seriously, everyone I know has almost lost a friendship over this stupid element.

Regardless, I do have one more pet peeve: that some folks call fluoride called “toxic industrial waste.” Why? Well, just what do you mean, exactly by that? Do you mean it is an industrial byproduct? Okay, say it is. Big deal. What does “industrial byproduct” mean? And is “industry” bad? All these terms are as meaningless as judging someone from where they were born. “I hate them dang folks from Connecticut, by gosh!” Ha. Yeah.
We judge things by their *content*, right, boys and girls? Which means, with regard to fluoride, content pretty much refers to its concentration and purity. Period. Call it what you want to, but there is nothing else. If fluoride is referred to as part of a compound, then what is that compound’s concentration and purity? Pretty much it. We all drink water that someone else peed out at some point over the millennia, right? No one seems to have a problem with drinking “human waste.” See what I mean?

Fluoride may or may not be the most toxic chemical on the planet, but labeling it as “toxic industrial waste” is either 1. political spin, and/or 2. a total red flag that you may not know a whole lot about science. Look, I’m really not trying to be a snarky jerk, really I’m not, but if you’re going to argue science, then by gosh, try try try to use science to frame your argument, eh? Thanks!
