Last week I was talking with a dentist about why I wanted to avoid fluoride treatments. He countered, as if this proves its safety: “Well, you know it is in your drinking water.” I agreed it is in our community’s drinking water, which is why I use a two-step water filtration process, including one that removes this toxin.
Widespread fluoride use has been a hot topic for decades. The fact that its use is commonly added to water does not make it safe. Much too often, the status quo is accepted and applied to everyone, even when some cannot tolerate it.
