Hopefully we can get rid of this rubbish ASAP.
"Step 3 - Fluoridation
Fluoride in the form of hydrofluosilicic acid is added to the water to reduce dental decay in
consumers. The natural fluoride content of the water is lifted to lie within the range 0.70 to
1.0 mg L-1, this being the level required by the Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand.
It is typically supplied as a solution containing 15 to 20% hydrofluosilicic acid of which 79%
is the fluoride ion."

When I asked our local water supplier if they have fluoridated our water they said that all water has a natural trace amount of fluoride in it but i know that is rubbish. It is a man made chemical and although it may not seem like enough to worry about now, it has a cumulative effect on your health. Thats why you only see 0.1% fluoride on bottled water etc. but it is definitely intentionally added; and not for our health!
My mum gave my brother fluoride drops as a baby under medical instruction for 3 years or so. We had a similar upbringing but I did not have any fluoride drops. As much as I love him he is arrogant and narrow minded. He will not accept the truth of some things when I present him with clear undeniable evidence. I believe this could well be due to the direct effect the drops had on his young developing brain.

Does anyone know how to filter out Fluoride?
overconsumption of fluoride can raise the risks of disorders affecting teeth, bones, the brain and the thyroid gland.
