    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?

      So very TRUE aguasilver!!! Very well put and right on the money! I'm personally drinking reverse osmosis water and am putting back in the trace minerals that were filtered out during the process.

    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.
