Fluoride in water

Here is another controversial topic. How does everyone on here feel about fluoride being put in the public water supply?

I don't have public water. So I haven't really thought about it.

I first gained insight on it one night on a long trip from Manchester NH, to Syracuse NY listening to AM radio. That was 5 years ago. What I heard was a fellow promoting a book, "the fluoride deception"( I never read it) but from what I heard about it coupled with my basic knowledge of chemistry made a believer out of me within minutes. Most of Western Europe has banned the use of it in public water.

Shouldn't we have asked this question 40 years ago?

I think fluoride is OK. I also think it will remain. Have you ever noticed the average smile in Western Europe? It's not a pretty sight.

Fluoride is put into water mostly due to the fact that it is a toxic byproduct of Phosphate production. It is difficult to get rid of so if it is spread out into small quantities in the public water supply they eliminate the disposal issue and profit immensely from it. Hexafluorosilicic acid is what is used in most communities. Why don't they just put vitamins in the water with calcium? that may actually benefit people. I am all set with drinking Hexafluorosilicic acid. My teeth are OK considering I have never lived in a community with water fluoridation and I have neglected my teeth quite a bit over the years. I think genetics, diet, and basic hygiene affect teeth the most.

I'm on public water here. They don't put fluoride in it. However, they do put in a lot of chlorine. We don't need to use bleach and that could be why I have white teeth, faded clothes, and drink beer instead of water. :D toothy :gee:

I was in Florida a couple weeks ago and could smell the chlorine in some of the water( I have a keen nose) and could not drink the water or fountain soda at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom due to the fact that it smelled and tasted like Sulfur. I will stick to purified water.

Well water from 400' below the surface is good water. It has been filtered by mother earth. Spring water is good. Chlorinated pond water isn't. Look at your municipal water test, 9 out of 12 things tested are a byproduct of treating the water. Everything that has been "improved" by man proves otherwise.

Most places stopped using chlorine in the water years ago. They use a brother of it....I think it's called calorimide (sp).... it does the same thing as chlorine, but doesn't smell nearly as much. When a calorimide drinker hits a place that still uses chlorine, they notice.

I drink only grain alcohol and rainwater.

I hear there are plans to add fluoride to ice cream.

We probably should add it to toilet paper too, just to be safe.

Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to fluoridated water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk, ice cream? Ice cream, Mandrake. Children's ice cream?

Mandrake:

Good Lord.

Ripper:

You know when fluoridation first began?

Mandrake:

No. No, I don't, Jack. No.

Ripper:

Nineteen hundred and forty six. Nineteen fortysix, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your postwar commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual, and certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard core commie works.

I live in Schuylkill County, PA (NE part of PA) and we have a well, but the one town called Schuylkill Haven has fluoride in their drinking water. The ony reason why I know this is, when the kids 1st when to the dentist, the dentist asked if we lived in Schuylkill Haven, if not the kids would have to take fluoride pills but if we did live in Schuylkill Haven, the fluoride was already in the drinking water. I am sure like everything else, you get enough of something, it will kill you. Go figure.

There is little doubt to the benefit of fluoride preventing cavities. However, ingesting fluoride has no benefits to your skeletal system. Skeletal fluorosis is bad. There are theories out there saying that fluoride can cause arthritis. When I was in Elementary school we were given a fluoride rinse and I was told to not swallow it. Fluoride pills are for birds. Wait, I take that back, how about for etching glass?
