Wikipedia on Flouride mentions that prolonged exposure to low concentrations, although generally believed to require more than found in drinking water, can cause Flourosis. Flourosis is a condition which can include hypothyroidism, brittling of bones and teeth (how ironic!), and yellowing of teeth.
Further in the article, it mentions that the human Pineal gland is the most flouride-sensitive part of the body. So naturally I checked on what the Pinneal gland does. Wikipedia on Pinneal gland says-
The Pinneal gland releases melatonin, which regulates our circadian rhythm. The Circadian rhythm is your biological clock which regulates eating habits, sleeping habits, and other functions. Jet-lag, fatigue, and in extreme cases sleep disorders are results of disturbance to the Circadian rhythm.
More from wikipedia on Pinneal Gland- The pinneal gland also has other features. In children whom have had the gland destroyed by pathological growths, the result was accelerated development of sex organs, increased skeletal growth, and precocious mentality.
Last but not least, the Pinneal gland manufactures dimethyltryptamine or '___'. '___' is a psychedelic chemical which is believed to play a role in dreams and near-death experiences. Perhaps you've heard the old story that flouridation was accused of being a communist plot to administer '___' to the general public? Not so far off after all.
Urban legend has it that Nazis used flouridated water to keep prisoners docile. This is not supported by any reliable sources I have seen, but seems to be a plausible use for floride if given in strong concentrations.
Last but not least, here is another source on Flouride's effects.

You are getting more HFL than you realize. I don't know your water source but if you get it from a municipality then it's a good chance your water has HFL.

By drinking city water and using toothpaste with HFL your getting it in ppm (parts per million) a very small quantity that does you no harm. People get flouride every day and are still living to 90-100+ yrs old. What are you so worried about?
Yes it is a new formula that you are drinking. I think you can have the original formula delivered if you live in a certain states or something like that.

Kinda off the subject but along the same lines with strange chemicals etc in our food and health products.
Today for the first time I had a Mexican Coca Cola. It tasted like the ones in the good old days when I was a kid around early 70s at grandads house. Mexican Bottled Coca Cola is "The Classic formula" But what are we drinking now? A New formula?
