I fell for the flouride is bad for you once. Luckily after a week of paranoia I went to the library (You know that place that has books in it?), and looked at the actual research that was done on Flouride. Flouride's only bad for you in very large amounts. There's so little flouride in our water that it IS safe to drink. Plus if "they" really wanted to poison us, would they have warnings on toothpaste saying not to swallow it? no, they would have no such warnings. If they really wanted to make us dumb, they wouldn't have required salt to contain 5% Iodide. There was a mass epidemic of people becoming dumb in Minnesota, there was a large study done and it was found that a lack of Iodide(or Iodine I forget which one), was causing these problems. It's actually where the term redneck comes from, because one of the symptoms of lack of Iodide is people's necks get red. I don't think you people realize just how paranoid you're being. Flouride is just a red-herring. If you fall for stuff you read online without reading up on it in a library, maybe you aren't just paranoid, but extremely dumb as well.
Do you know that it is people like you that make me want to go berserk? Make me want to trash my house.
Do you hear yourself reasoning? Only harmful in small amounts. MATHEMATICS! YOU SHOWER IN IT EVERYDAY! YOU DRINK IT EVERYDAY. YOU BRUSH YOUR TEETH EVERYDAY. THINK !!
Omg i cannot believe what i am reading here on this forum. Its gets worse by the day.
Tell me you. Why are they adding it? What good does it do? Does it help you?
IT IS PROVEN TO BE HARMFUL ON A LONG TERM OK? A LONG TERM LOOOOOOOOONG TERM.

theres a reason swallowing toothpaste is bad, if swallowing a few drops of toothpaste means you have to call poison control
More like whole tube. The probably toxic dose of fluoride is about 5 mg/kg.edit on 23/5/11 by Maslo because: (no reason given)
Flouride doesn't sink through the skin, so showering in flouridated water isn't going to do anything. Its only in the water at about 1 part per million. The rest is just fearmongering done by the likes of Alex Jones.
