  •  Flouridation (2+ / 0-)

    Why not let people make their own choices? If you want flouride, you can get it in your toothpaste. If you don't want it, you shouldn't have it put in your water against your will. In Europe, they put it in salt instead of the water because you can't control the dose if it's in the water. Makes sense.

        water stand a while or just boil it.

        There's no such easy fix for fluoridation.

        And, no, I'm not against ensuring that drinking water meets both the higher and lower recommendations set by the CDC when it comes to fluoride.
