The idea wasn't to make a claim or to brag about anything. The idea was to show that flouride has effects on people other than their IQ. I don't consider myself any smarter than the average joe out there. I didn't realize I was saying something newsworthy to anyone. If I said it was consistently 89 throughout my life, maybe that would have been more comfortable? I'm not going to give evidence of my IQ, because it's meaningless. And it's unimportant to me as to whether anyone believes it or not. IQ tests don't prove anything. They're just a basic measure of comprehension level. But thanks for bringing that to my attention. I'll not do that again. Let my fingers get ahead of my brain again.
Indeed, sir. However, extrodinary claims call for extrodinary evidence. So a simple answer as to which test you took would suffice, like the Stanford-Binet exam.
You do realize if your IQ is 149, you're in the top 99.9997% of the population. So that is actually important, wouldn't you agree?

A fundamental point about fluoridated water vs. naturally occurring fluorides is that natural (good) fluorides are CALCIUM FLUORIDE, whilst the fluoride found in water is SODIUM FLUORIDE (a by-product of the steel industry).
The primary reason they put it in water is because fluoride eats through everything, so it is the only way they can dispose of it.
They tell the masses it is good for their health so they accept it, and tell them that fluoride is found naturally, but what they omit is the CHEMICAL DIFFERENCE.
CALCIUM FLUORIDE is healthy (found in milk for example).
SODIUM FLUORIDE is a poison (found in tap water).
Your dentist will likely tell you that you can not get fluoride free toothpaste. The reality is you CAN, but you must go to a chemist and request it - they will not put it on the shelf.
Note carefully that the fluoride in toothpaste is SODIUM FLUORIDE, THE POISON!!!
