Wake up people! What is being put in the water for fluoridation purposes is not pharmaceutical grade fluoride . . . it's Fluorosilicic Acid and most of what the USA receives comes from China and Japan. And not only does it contain fluoride, it also contains arsenic and heavy metals, delicious! If you want to brush with it or rinse your mouth with it, be my guest. Just don't force it on those who don't want it. There is more evidence that it does more harm than good. And here's a direct quote from the CDC:
“fluoride prevents dental caries predominately after eruption of the tooth into the mouth, and its actions primarily are topical for both adults and children.”
There's also a big difference between treating the water to keep us from getting sick and medicating the water as with fluoridation in attempt to prevent cavities. There's no way to control the dosage, no way to know if one's health is already compromised, i.e. kidney disease. We do not want this in our water! I always thought fluoride was a good thing until two years ago after I spent time reading everything I could get my hands on. The information is out there if you take the time to do your own research.
