I have seen NO DIFFERENCE, from when I was a child, and drank tap water all of the time. In Los Angeles!!! Where a lot of fluoridation occurred.
My mind, if anything, was much, much sharper as a kid...all through my teens, into early twenties, thirties....in the forties? Well, like everyone,
things tend to slow down. AND, like most (Americans at least) I've been drinking bottled (or filtered) water since, mostly...well, since it became
the "norm"....when was that, anyone remember? ( In fact, most of my "water" is consumed from other sources...foods and other beverages. Beer, too!
When was it that the "soft drink industry" realized what a money-making scam they had going, there??? I'd say, off-hand, was about the same time that
beverage containers were invented, and began to become all the rage....AND, if I also recall, there were some clever
marketing ploys (anyone remember the "first" bottled water company? EVIAN
. BIG selling point? "Imported". Exotic. "Natural". Etc.
Oh, and "evian"? is "naive" spelled backwards, isn't it??) So, I will (from memory) peg this transition to around the early 1980s, or so....after
the horrid 70s (and "Disco"....*>shudder
