In 2008, Julian Savulescu, a professor respected for his work in bioethics, wrote a piece advising Health Secretary Alan Johnson on adding fluoride to tap water. Savulescu believes that government has a duty to promote, among other things, the “cognitive enhancement” of humanity.
Yes, Savulescu referenced “cognitive enhancement” when discussing the government tampering with your water.
As more and more government bodies take it upon themselves to know what is best for the so-called “general health,” will governments begin adding more than just fluoride to our tap water? I

I think one might find more "free thinkers" in those that don't brush their teeth all that much/make their own toothpaste and drink well water. Someone should do some kind of study on the subject...

More recently, other studies attempting to document the effectiveness of fluoride have been conducted. Dr. John Yiamouyiannis examined the raw data from a large study that was conducted by the National Institute for Dental Research (NIDR). He concluded that fluoride did not appear to have any decay preventing success, as there was little difference in the DMFT values (the mean number of decayed, missing or filled teeth) for approximately 40,000 children. It did not matter whether they grew up in fluoridated, non-fluoridated or partially fluoridated communities. (Yiamouyiannis, J.A. "Water Fluoridation and Tooth Decay: Results from the 1986-87 National Survey of U.S. Schoolchildren", Fluoride, 23, 55-67, 1990).
A larger study has been conducted in New Zealand. There, the New Zealand National Health Service plan examines the teeth of every child in key age groups, and have found that the teeth of children in non-fluoridated cities were slightly better than those in the fluoridated cities. (Colquhoun, J. "Child Dental Health Differences in New Zealand", Community Healthy Services, XI 85-90, 1987).
I don't think that fluoride in drinking water is harmful.

I don't think that fluoride in drinking water is harmful. And I don't think that's the problem. The problem is, nobody should be at liberty to put anything in your water or mine -- especially if it has little to do with water purity.
