Would you want the US government to stop fluoridation of tap water?
To the best of my knowledge, the U.S. does not add fluoridation to tap water. That is done at the community level. In my city, the water company, is a private own entity, that its its water from artisan wells, estimated to be more than 2,000 years old. I know in the city where I was a newpspaper reporter, the water system was owned by the city and no fluoride was added to it. Again, I think that decision rests at the local level, since it is local governments or private entities that provide water, while some people still have their own wells.
If the U.S. did add fluoride to water, I would want them to stop. Fluoride makes me ill. I reject fluoride treatments from my dentist. Mass medication is usually not the best choice. Also, since everyone drinks a different amount of water, there is no way of controlling the dosage.
Thank you Larry, according to this site (http://www.fluoridealert.org/faq) 70% of tap water is fluoridated in the States and more of it is consumed in the U.S.A alone than all other countries in the world combined...
I was not clear in my statement.. It is the U.S. Government that does not demand water be fluoridated.. That is a decision left up to local communities. Obviously many in the U.S. have fluoridated tap water, but it was not mandated by the fed. gov"t

Is it okay to, and do you drink the tap water where you live?Where I live in Australia, it's quite okay to drink the tap water, but I choose not to as I don't like the taste of it (seems flat / metallic taste).
