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. I have no idea if fluoride is #1 at anything other than making people stupid enough to wonder if industrial waste added to their water is somehow good for them. Apparently. It's meant for OUTSIDE the body uses, not inside. But we drink it! Gasp Shock! That's BAD for you. The end. Where's the problem?

Effects on dental health controversial? Please provide a source so that I may refute it with actual data. See, Pre-2000 my dental hygiene wasn't very good. I brushed daily, but that was about it. After one dentist appointment, after not seeing one in almost five years, I found out I was riddled with cavities. The dentist patched me up, told me to use a Sonicare toothbrush, and rinse daily with ACT fluoride rinse. Well, I had a an appointment or two after that, but haven't been back since maybe 2002. And guess what, if I have had any cavities, they were hidden or didn't hurt, or maybe they aren't there. The toothbrush has been good, but I really give all the credit to the fluoride rinse. No cavities in 10 years. Of course I guess there have been side effects, I no longer vote for republicans. And I was a registered republican from 1994, of course that could have had something to do with their lurch to pander to Christianists, but that is neither here nor there.
Bottom line - I have been drinking flouridated tap water and using a fluoride rinse for 35 years, and I have yet to see, or feel and negative things from it. Yes, in HUGE doses fluoride is poisonous, but like the poster before said, so are alcohol and nicotine.
According to the latest numbers, over 72 percent of Americans drink water treated with fluoride. Is it any wonder that cardiovascular disease rates are off the charts?
That’s the finding of the latest Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which shows that 63.1% of adults in the U.S. were either overweight or obese in 2009.

so that's sodium flouride in the water.but what about the calcium flouride in toothpaste? don't forget that sodium itself is dangerous to us, as is chlorine, but the two together make sodium chloride, a chemical that our body literally needs to live.

Sorry haven't read thru the entire thread to see everyone's responses but the most logical answer to this is......POPULATION CONTROL. Does it suck...yes. But we all know that it is necessary. Why do you think there has been no cure for cancer? A lot of this disease is man made and it's for this very reason. We have a hard enough time around this world feeding the people we got now. Let along finding good jobs for everyone. It's a very probable cause that I will likely die from cancer. Not going to sit here and say I'm fine with it but I just have to accept I'll be the next in line.
