So here we have just one more oral "vaccine" that consumers cannot opt out of because somebody says its good for our teeth and everybody must drink
water, your snide mockery aside.
Excerpts from the Scientific Literature - Recent Surveys of Water Fluoridation/Tooth Decay: "This study assessed the relationship between dental
caries and fluorosis at varying fluoride levels in drinking water. Methods: Subjects were followed from birth with questionnaires every 3-4 months to
gather information on fluoride intake. 420 study subjects received dental examinations at age 5 on primary teeth and at age 9 on early-erupting
permanent teeth... Conclusions: Fluorosis prevalence increased significantly with higher water fluoride levels; however, caries prevalence did not

Matter of fact, the entire site is loaded with scientific evidence showing there is no dental health benefit from fluoridated water.
In another study, samples were collected by the New York State Department of Children’s Health from 1994 through 1998.
Researchers concluded that the fluorosilicic acid-treated water was equal to or worse a contributor of blood-lead levels as old house paint.
Dr. Roger Masters of Dartmouth College, PhD, Head, Foundation for Neuroscience & Society said these preliminary findings correlate the fluorosilicic
acid water treatment and behavior problems that are due to known effects of lead on brain chemistry.
Additionally, a study in Germany showed the fluorosilicic acid water (SiFs) may inhibit the enzyme cholinesterase which plays a key role in regulating
“If SiFs are cholinesterase inhibitors, this means that SiFs have effects like the chemical agents linked to Gulf War Syndrome, chronic fatigue
syndrome and other puzzling conditions that plague millions of Americans,” Masters said. “We need a better understanding of how SiFs behave
chemically and physiologically.”
Last March, Dr. Masters testified before New Hampshire legislators in favor of the Fluoride Product Quality Control Act. The bill would put the SiFs
to a series of tests, and perhaps further research on neurotoxicity and behavior.
“If further research confirms our findings,” Masters said, “this may well be the worst environmental poison since leaded gasoline.”
The EPA admits it has no data on the health and behavioral effects of SiFs.

What a paraniod loonie this PhD must be.
You were the one who initiated the commentary about “fluorinated/ nitrated
tap water, etc,” and although I had never heard of nitrites
being added to water prior to your statement, I gave you credit for knowing something that I did not. Good job.
My apologies to Rubenstein for hijacking the thread.
