I'm not pushing it. I'm attempting to show that there are many untruths about it and that people fear it based on faulty intelligence. The anti-fluoride camp either tweaks the data to fit their agenda or uses arguments that are outright lies.
I don't believe that people need to drink fluoride, but until there is a better way to help people with poor dental hygiene, this is the best way. I also don't believe that fluoride in properly dosed water fluoridation will harm anyone, so I don't see a problem.
“Intake of nutrients such as calcium and iodine often is not reported in studies of fluoride effects. The effects of fluoride on thyroid function, for instance, might depend on whether iodine intake is low, adequate, or high, or whether dietary selenium is adequate.”

However, I think most of the anti-fluoridians have taken their ball and gone home.
I'm out for the night. Take care and don't forget to drink your water and brush your teeth!

You have sources for your claims? Properly dosed water fluoridation causes loss of intelligence? All the evidence points to water fluoridation being beneficial.
