I am as worried as you about fluoridated water, but i think this proves nothing as it could simply be due to the well known placebo effect.
Either way forced medication is simply wrong even if it isn't as bad as we believe it is.
I personally felt opposite effect when i went on vacation to some country with fluoridated water, but i simply dont know if it was placebo or not.
What i felt was that my thinking felt a bit more foggy especially during night time when i got tired.
Either way i am happy that they dont fluoridate the water here yet at least. WHO is pushing hard for water fluoridation though.. ;
Edit: Oh and btw.. People dont got problems with cavities here either, so that part i know is just propaganda when it comes to water fluoridation.
Most people do use fluoridated toothpaste though.

that prove that positive thinking is a very powerful healer.

of my attempts kindly bought my four cans of larger (Kronenberg), which although French in origin, is in fact brewed in the UK, so last night, through
politeness, I consumed the cans and guess what?... To put it plainly, my head was up my arse! I was struggling to find the words I needed and my
thoughts were unclear and scatty. This affect seems to be the most notable of consuming fluoridated water and as I value my mental aptitude, very
You mentioned that you ''felt opposite effect (affect)'' yet you then report ''my thinking felt a bit more foggy'' - which is similar to what I felt,
so could you please elaborate on this because it does make much sense to me.
''WHO is pushing hard for water fluoridation though..'' - Nobody outside those directly involved with the government, councils or water-board. In
fact, there are many professionals, concerned citizens and experts who are 'pulling' for it to be excluded.
Interestingly enough, from what I understand, the government does not enforce fluoridation, but 'requests' to the water companies that it is added, in
a way that they are forced to acquiesce.
I'm glad that you do not have to suffer this poison like so many others do, but then again, as is the purpose of this thread, does one really have
