    Don't buy into that crap.

    Yes, high doses of Fl- can cause problems just as high doses of water can kill you.

    Flouride is the reason people don't generally get dentures in their 20's any longer. Used properly it isn't a problem. These sites and people tell half truths.

    I have three cold water springs on my property and three wells, one of which i let my neighbor draw from, and another goes to my house. There's nothing but water in my water, infact, even though there is not a filter anywhere in the line, when tested my water was perfect. I had to get it tested to get VA finacing. I love my water and always brag about how pure it is. I consume more than a gallon per day on a slow day. My favorite recepticle for my water is a 27oz.(800ml.) 18/8 Stainless "Klean Kanteen" brand canteen.:supergrin:

    I work at a water treatment plant that fluoridates water.

    Personally, I am against it, but not for the reasons that the conspiracy theorists are.

    And fwiw, the water in some of the wells in the Southern California desert contain naturally occurring levels that exceed the secondary MCL and it must be removed through reverse osmosis.

    Look at your tube of flouridated toothpaste and tell me what it says.

    Why would you add a poison to your water? People don't keep their teeth longer because of flouride, they keep their teeth longer because of better access to dental care and education on how to care for their teeth.

    Here's another interesting fact for those that have flouridated water (flouridated by the utility, not nature). Want to know the scientific method for dosing? It's based on seasons, yep, summer and winter. The braintrust behind this public health travesty figures you drink more water in the summer, so the dose added is less, winter is the opposite. What if you drink the same amount all year long?

    Yes, it can thicken and strengthen the enamel on your teeth, but the minute amount you receive through your flouride toothpaste is more than enough to do the job.

    I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

    You should get your water tested every month. At the least, every six months. Conditions change around you and you never know what gets into your surrounding groundwater. (My wife runs a water testing laboratory for the State of Texas so I hear this all the time.) Here are the parameters for Kerr County, Texas. Your parameters where you live might be different.

    There's no such thing as a poison...just poisonous levels. HH

    I ran a water system for 22 years. I don't drink tap water because I know what's in it. However, tap water is more regulated than bottled water.

    I live in one of the few areas where they don't put flouride in the water.

    This was just something I read that had me going for awhile.Glad to know it's just an overblown conspiracy story.I should know better than take anything I read on the net for more than it's weight in ink(so to speak).Thanks for some of the more realistic views on this.
