  • OK, so I already knew that cows' milk isn't the wonder food that the agricultural industry wants us to believe, and that disposable diapers are full of toxic and carcinogenic chemicals, but fluoride? I grew up being told that fluoride was the magic bullet for tooth decay, and it turns out that was a lie too and not only is it not that great for your teeth, it's a neurotoxin, an asthma trigger and causes a whole host of other health problems, AND they put it in our water on purpose!?

    Trying to protect my DD from things that might set her up for a lifetime's battle with asthma and other health problems is turning into a very depressing education.

    So, thanks to a bunch of long dead dentists I just had to blow the better part of $300 on a water filter that should render NYC tap water safe to drink. Probably just as well, it'll clear out a lot more nasties than just the fluoride.

    Do you ever feel like a mushroom? They keep you in the dark and feed you s***.

  • Seems like no matter who you talk to or hear info from there is always the opposite opinion out there and you can drive yourself crazy listening to it all! For every positive report there will be one negative report!

  • No fluoride in our water, but it is in our toothpastes. And they still do fluoride treatments at the dentist office.

  • I raised two kids that are now 15 and 12 on tap water (with fluoride) and they are just fine not a trace of asthma or any other sickness

  • Where did you find the source for your information? Not discrediting it, but my dentist also still uses flouride treatments and it is in toothpaste. On top of all that I do a lot of research on many things but have yet to find anything linking flouride to asthma? I think you can thank asthma on people that smoke around their children, air quality and allergies, but flouride?
