DO you have it in your water? Do you get regular fluoride treatments at the dentist? Does your doctor prescribe fluoride tablets or drops to your children? Are you properly educated about fluoride??? Tell me what you think about it...

I've heard arguments for and against. But one thing I will say, is toothpaste does have flouride in it and you're not supposed to swallow it... so what does that mean?

EXACTLY my thoughts! the warning says that if more is swallowed than used for brushing to contact your POISON control center!!!

It means do more research and don't let the scientists or politicians tell you what is safe. Trust yourself and your gut instinct.

We have just had marches opposing it in our town, but the local council have gone ahead and put it in the water supply anyway. What does that say about the determination of our governments to do this. Surely we don't need councils and governments taking on minstry of health roles as well. Or perhaps there is another agenda?

it's a shame that you go through all of that work to stop it and they just ignore you. Isn't it enough that they give it to you at the dentist and also try at school. Now they force everyone to drink it. There is also naturally occurring fluoride in many food and beverage products so I don't see the necessity of adding it to water. I buy bottled water. It is supposed to say whether or not it is fluroidated...and I buy it NOT.
