If you can explain to me one good reason for why fluoride should be INGESTED and also provide solid proof that it actually has a very positive affect
compared to non-fluoridated nations, then you may have a legitimate point. But as far as I can see all you are doing is promoting modern myths, when
claiming to be dispelling myths. The burden of proof is on you and your kind why seek to push mass fluoridation, not those who wish to have an
untainted water supply. Have you even thought about those people who are allergic to fluoride? Have you ever thought about how they are supposed to
bath and take showers and drink tap water?
I don't believe it should be ingested. Scary huh?
What other way are you going to make sure that children/the poor/people with no knowledge of dental hygiene can get fluoride to help their teeth?
That is why there are MAC's (Maximum Allowable Concentrations) so that there is no harm when drinking it.
What happens when any of the people mentioned above have teeth problems? If they can't afford a dentist, who do you think pays for them to get the
minimum care? Social services. If they don't go to a dentist and wind up with heart disease caused by tooth decay (yes it's real, Google it) and
have to go to a hospital, who do you think pays for it? You. Indirectly through your taxes.
Untainted water supply? Where are you going to find that in todays day and age? I would rather trust myself and other water treatment plant
operators to make sure that the water is pathogen free and clean to drink. We have families too. You think that we would poison our own families?
The anti-fluoride people have ZERO science backing them up. If you are going to say the Harvard study...well don't bother. Not only were none of
those cases in the US (all in China except one from Iran) none of them had to do with water fluoridation at a treatment plant. They were about
naturally occurring fluoride.
Not only do treatment plants in the west add fluoride, they also take fluoride out of the raw water to acceptable levels. How sure are you that your
"untainted water supply" doesn't have fluoride in it? You test it 4 times a year? With what equipment? What third party lab do you send it to?
Who is allergic to fluoride? The funniest example of the fluoride placebo effect was in Cleveland. They were supposed to start fluoridating their
water in June. They were getting calls that their dog was constipated, they can't make a decent cup of coffee, their plants are all dying. The funny
thing is, they didn't start fluoridating until July because of unforseen problems.
Any more questions?
Edit: There are countries that do not fluoridate their water supply. There are also countries that add fluoride to their salt.
Better stay away from these foods as well!
