Ok everybody, have another AWESOME topic to discuss with you all. It's about fluoride and if it's actually good for us or not...give us your opinion. We have some scientific insight that may spark your interest...Start off by reading the link we have posted below and follow up with your comments below this post. Thanks Forum!
I don't mind so much having a bit applied to the teeth by the dentist, but have always been vehemently against drinking water fluoridation. The stuff is not meant to be ingested. The supposed logic behind the decision to fluoridate the water in my city still makes no sense to me. DRINK fluoride for better teeth? So, in answer to your question, I believe it is NOT good for us!!! Sounds like the study agrees.
Definitely true. In some cases fluoride has been 'OK' for teeth, but not in every case. Just like you said: we are not supposed to be ingesting it! There is a HUGE difference between "putting it on one's teeth" and "Consuming" it. Thanks for your comment RooBee, looks like we share some similar views.
Neglect of the teeth and unhygenic ways lead the way to the dentist. Its the US govts fault for not educating the people on the necessities to a better healthy life.
We started drinking distilled water several years ago, now in Asia we drink deionized water, and my Hannah water meter shows less than 5ppm in what we drink.
I would never allow my family to drink fluoride and chlorine, which are both in tap water.
Fluoride also produces a docile unthinking population who cannot make decisions well.... sound familiar?
Fluoride is neither a nutrient nor required for healthy teeth. Fluoride is a drug with adverse side effects (see http://www.FluorideAction.Net) even at low levels added to water supplies. The water supply should never be used as a drug delivery system with doses based on thirst not age, size, health or need.
Fluoride is regulated and approved as a drug in toothpaste for topical application by the FDA however, fluoride supplements are not FDA approved and never underwent rigorous scientific scrutiny for ingestion. Fluoride is an unapproved drug.

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?

Do you think putting fluoride in water is a good idea?Educated people tend to agree...it's about as smart as a box of hammers.

Is it really necessary to brush your teeth everyday?I went to the dentist one year after not going for five. I brushed my teeth every now and then for those five years. I gave my teeth a good brushing before the dentist and he told me that my teeth were in the best shape he had seen.
