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?

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.

I couldn't tell you which test it was. I took it with a group of other individuals several years ago. I can tell you it was several pages, and in a multiple choice format. And it was timed. I also remember guessing at some of them. Anyway, that's what it was scored at. Right or wrong.

No, I did not realize that. And I don't consider it important. I know plenty of people smarter than myself by far. Including my wife. So if I'm supposed to be a prodigy, I sure don't feel like one.

Besides, common sense trumps IQ any day of the week. And I could certainly use some more common sense. I think I just proved that.

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!!!

"Remember, we're all just paranoid that fluoride is not good for us."

Your right your paranoid. Jeez, I can't believe these people. Why would anyone think ingesting an industrial waste product could be bad for you in anyway,, jeez, the nerves of these people.

I know some brands like TOM's sell flouride free toothpaste, however you'll pay twice as much for it without the flouride in it.

I use the toms of maine without fluoride. In our store, we sell it, for $5.69 a tube. the one with fluoride, is about $3.49. Walmart near me, last year, sold a toms of maine that was fluoride and SLS sodium laurel sulfate free), but not anymore. way cheaper at walmart.

So everyone but 1 poster agrees fluoride is bad. Some of you even have children.

The question now is can any of you, or all of us together, come up with an idea to stop the fluoridation in our cities?

Can someone put together a petition? Is there an already existing petition we can sign and forward to someone? Who do we forward the petition to? What kind of letters can we write? What kind of documents or studies can we provide as credible evidence to back up our claims?

Or are we just going to sit around and drink the stuff, contemplate filters, and just keep warning people about fluoride while all the while still half-heartedly consuming it due to lack of choice?
