ive heard people mention that flouride occurs naturally in water and in some cases municipalities actually remove flouride to get to standard levels in places where the natural flouride level is high.

but again.. as few potentially harmful chemicals in the water as possible is always nice.

There's a huge variance of opinion on fluoride, but when you take out the tin-foil-wearing moon-bats, there's essentially consensus that fluoride is not a problem.

This is part of the issue too, how bad is Fluouride? Huge variance of opinions. It seems like if you can relatively cheaply and easily avoid it, you should do that.

I wish it was just fluoride that they were adding. Some communities add other chemicals to prevent things like pin hole leaks in copper pipes - Florida towns! Glad I don't live in FL anymore. The list is probably pretty long for additional additives.

dont worry about it too much, i see no problem using fluoride topically for teeth. im not so thrilled about it being put in the water for obvious reasons.... one being its not needed... two being ethical, as its pretty much forced medication.

as i understand it the amounts are so low that there is no real danger to adults, children may be a bit more susceptible to dental florosis.

but then again a lot of people are really anti-flouride, havent decided if their crazy or not... certainly the conspiracy theorists take it many steps beyond reason.

Portland = no fluoride in H20.

You could buy a filter, cheaper than buying water usually.
