I've filtered my water for many years . I don't cook with tap water , or ingest it . Do you think Fluoride should be removed from the local water sources ... Is it harmful to our children and pets ?

Why do they put it in the water ?

Yes it should. It is nothing more than industrial waste that cannot be disposed of legally any other way.If one was to take a thimble full and drop it into a body of water that person would be nailed by the EPA on environmental charges. It does not have any effect on tooth enamel as they claim is the reason for it. It is highly reactive and upsets numerous bio-functions in the body. It also damages the bones in your body.It is a toxic substance that is unfit for the environment so they add to the water supply as a way of disposing it.

Instead of just making negative judge marks,how about someone make a counter-point to the statement to go along with it.Probably because these are known facts.

I don't really buy the whole pineal gland thing. It calcifies up as you go through puberty regardless.Besides, calcium is what calcifies it.Fluoride deposits in the pineal gland and causes fluoridation of the pineal gland.

how about some basics...

Fluoride can be one of the most volatile and active harmful chemicals in the body. Fluoride can attack mercilessly, against any age group, but its effects are especially harmful to developing children and the elderly. The detrimental effects of fluoride are varied. Below is a list of some of the recently documented, harmful effects of drinking fluoridated water:
1) Fluoride is known to cause dental fluorosis, a defect of the tooth enamel caused by fluoride’s interference with developing teeth. Its visible signs are mottled or yellowed teeth. Nearly 30% of children drinking fluoridated water suffer from dental fluorosis on two or more teeth (Hileman, 1988).

2) Fluoride is associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Fluoride enters the brain and enables aluminum to cross the blood-brain barrier, resulting in increased risk for these diseases. Fluoride has also been associated with low IQ and mental retardation in children (Hileman, 1988).

3) Fluoride can cause a crippling bone disease called skeletal fluorosis. In more mild forms, symptoms of this disease include chronic joint pain, similar to the symptoms of arthritis. Arthritis has now reached near epidemic levels in the United States, and the connection to fluoridated water should be considered.

4) Fluoride depresses the activity of the human thyroid gland and has been commonly used as an effective treatment for patients with overactive thyroids. Fluoride may depress the activity of the healthy thyroid, as well, resulting in an underactive thyroid, a common cause of obesity. More than 20 million people in the United States receive treatment for thyroid problems.

5) Fluoride disrupts the activity of normally functioning hormones. Fluoride can reduce levels of melatonin, the sleep hormone, in the body, causing chronic insomnia (Hileman, 1988).
Most European countries have now rejected the process of water fluoridation. Their children’s teeth have not suffered from this rejection. The cost/benefit ratio of fluoridated water no longer warrants the presence of fluoride in drinking water.
