If fluoride is harmful for us to swallow in our toothpaste, why is it allowed in our water?
Most of the cities in American put fluoride in their water systems. The claim is it is for our teeth. The problem with this is when ingested can be very harmful to us. Which is why we are told not to swallow toothpaste due to the flouride. Why would it then be allowed for us to drink in our water?
Oooh, that's a good question. You're right. I grew up with well water that never had anything in it, but when I moved to a city that changed. The water is so full of chemicals it dries out the skin and you can smell it right after they put in a new treatment.
We don't drink the water but buy water for us and our pets. I even wrote about it last year because I had a storage problem for so many gallons of water. It actually surprised some people that we bought water when the tap water is treated. Sorry, but to me it tastes nasty, when others are used to it. Whatever works for each is fine with me.
My dear. Fluoride is not harmful unless it is ingested in such a quantity which leads to the fluoride toxicity. In water, there is a constant quantity which is mixed measured in "ppm" unit. Which is constant no matter how much water you drink there will be limited quantity of ingestion while in tooth paste this content gets higher if large quantities are ingested.
Who got you to believe this? There are many countries who have banned fluoride in their water due to how harmful it is to our bodies. Drinking water every day compared to a tube of toothpaste is no comparison to the amount of fluoride in it. Wake up
name the countries....? I have a proof for it. Flouride quantity matters my dear. Flouride it self is good for your teeth especially in developing stage of your tooth

Would you rather have drinking water without fluoride?We don't swallow the fluoride when we get a treatment at the dentist. Why should it be in drinking water? Is cavity protection worth the known health risks to fluoride, which some consider an industrial waste product?
