Fluoridating water is a personal choice issue. I've always opposed water fluoridation because it forces everyone to ingest a very toxic chemical all in the name of reducing dental decay. There is some evidence that fluoride topically applied helps to some small extent in reducing cavities, but as more and more research has been done, it is clear that taking this toxic substance through the body has little or no effect on reducing cavities.
“My investigation of fluoridation started with a simple desire to understand why the health/dental bureaucracies are in favor of adding this highly poisonous substance to our drinking water. I wanted to go beyond a simple faith in their pronouncements. I wanted to understand the forces behind the fluoridation campaign--and their motives.
Please don't get mad at your dentist. It is not his fault. With this (free) book, you will know more about water fluoridation than your dentist and your public health officials.” http://fluoridegoodorbad.com/
John D.B. Featherstone, head of the Department of Preventive and Restorative Dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco, stated “…the truth is that when it comes to preventing cavities, ‘brushing with fluoridated toothpaste twice a day is as good or better than fluoride in the drinking water…’" Salt Lake Tribune, October 29, 2000, Editorial, “Fluoride: The Hard Truth.” http://tinyurl.com/cgmtbnf
