I couldn't find any description of why people want to end fluoridation in mainstream or peer-reviewed scientific sources, but of course the reason there is a fight against it is because it's not the mainstream view. So here is one page that describes what people are worried about with fluoridation: www.cheeseslave.com/top-10-dangers-o

For the record, organohalides like teflon and organic fluoride compounds are pretty nasty compounds and that's why I prefer well-seasoned cast iron skillets to teflon-coated non-stick cookware which invariably chips off and gets ingested. So make up your own mind. I for one come from a family with soft enamel, so my teeth need all the help I can give them.

I have to agree that I want my water fluoridated, too. People who live where the water naturally containes fluoride have stronger teeth. I haven't heard of any adverse effects

Is there an article that explains why there is an effort to stop putting flouride in water? Can you send a link?

thanks, Linda

Not me. I actually want my water fluoridated, and I brush with a fluoride toothpaste, too.

Hi,

Over 1,200 medical and environmental health professionals have recently called for an end to water fluoridation worldwide. Please join me in supporting this effort by taking a few moments to sign the online petition to Congress at the following address: salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/2477/t
