The "benefits" of fluoride for dental health are 'controversial' at best.
Originally posted by SyphonXNo one really has the choice to "stop fluoridated" water, because they have no other alternatives unless you live off the grid 100% and just be "some creep in the woods".
Key Findings - Fluoride & Tooth Decay (Caries) According to the current consensus view of the dental research community, fluoride's primary - if not sole - benefit to teeth comes from topical application to the surfaces of teeth (while in the mouth), and not from ingestion. It is also acknowledged by dental researchers that fluoride has little effect on preventing cavities in the pits and fissures (chewing surfaces) of teeth - where the majority of tooth decay occurs.
No one has a choice to stop fluoridated water because fluoride is natural in water almost everywhere in the world. If you live by the sea you are breathing in fluoride vapour from the ocean every day. Even if you live off the grid like you say you will not be able to get away from fluoride. It is one of the most abundant elements on earth. So, you can go on fighting your war on fluoride if you want, but quite frankly it's a waste of time.

Well since I wasn't replying specifically to you, but to SyphonX, I'll forgive your rudeness towards me.
Of course, the truth is fluoride only accumulates in the large calcium deposits (ie teeth, bone, and the pineal gland because it normally calcifies with age) so you don't have to worry. You're ok and so is everyone else.

Why don't you think before posting stories like this?
Fluoride is the #1 killer?
Some college or renowned doctor would have proven this via study by now somewhere.
I am just saying that is one hell of a claim and just sounds like bullcrap just reading it.
Someone below OP said Fluoride is more deadly than lead? Wear a tinfoil hat much?
I wouldn't put the Gov above Eugenics (just look at our history) and Fluoride has its good and bad points, but the claim of this story is so ridiculous that it's just not believable nor could ever be factual.
OP should apply their palm to their forehead quickly, making a smacking noise.

Sorry, this is not what you think it's about.
It's about the use of a fluoride based pharmaceutical in PET/CT scans.
It is injected into the blood system, hence the study on the cardiovascular system.
It becomes clear after reading it.
