*Fluoride prevents cavities topically, not by ingestion;
*Ingested fluoride has never been tested in a randomized controlled trial and is not proven to prevent cavities;
*Ingested fluoride is a medication without any FDA-approved indication;
*Fluoride is a bioaccumulative toxin, with a half-life in bone of 20 years;
*Fluoride harms thyroid function at dosages (0.01-0.03mg/kg/day) received from fluoridated water;
*Taking medication is an individual decision, not a community decision...

      This should be illegal. I should be the only one who could add somehing to my water.

      I am a carpenter. During the summer building decks I can drink 2-3 gallons of water a day. Somebody at a desk job might only drink a half gallon. I don't think it is safe to put something in my water considering you can't regulate the amount I am consuming.

      All of the arguments I have heard about why flouride should be added to our water supply are completely ungrounded in any scientific, ethical or logical intelligence. And above all, how can it be permissible for the Water Authority to add any kind of medication to our water supply without a consensus?

      The history of fluoride use in water in the U.S. brings up major questions as to the validity of the claims citing the benefits of fluoride, the evidence suggests that fluoride is more harmful than helpful when ingested, and fluoride has already been eliminated from water sources in many European countries.
