My nutrition education places fluoride as a drug, not a nutrient like vitamins.
A “pea size” of toothpaste contains 0.5mg of fluoride ion, the same amount of fluoride found in 8 ounces of fluoridated water. If the FDA regulated water, the FDA would probably require a warning “do not swallow this water.”
