Is fluoride added to our city drinking water? I don't think that it is, but I wanted to check.

I don't know but never heard of anyone getting sick from this water. It's always good and cold. I never heard of anyone ever getting sick from this water except for this one time at band camp one of the flute players did stick a flute up a water pipe this one time, it was so funny. Those flute players are so crazy but not as craxy as the flag people, they made prank phone calls this one time, they are so funny and crazy.

YEARS AGO THE CITY OF WP HAD A BALLOT ISSUE TO ADD FLUORIDE TO OUR WATER SYSTEM. THIS WAS VOTED DOWN. I DONT KNOW THE REASONS THE PEOPLE VOTED THIS DOWN, BUT IT WAS. I MOVED TO WEST PLAINS AS A CHILD, FROM A CITY WITH FLUORIDE IN THE WATER AND NEVER EXPERIENCED A CAVATY. HOWEVER, AFTER MANY YEARS HERE IN WP, I HAVE HAD CAVATIES AS AN ADULT. NOW, IM NOT SAYING THAT FLUORIDE IS THE SOLE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR FOR THESE CAVATIES, AS IT COULD BE AGE AS WELL. IF YOUR CHILD ATTENDS ANY OF THE LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, FLUORIDE IS GIVEN ABOUT EVERY 3 MONTHS BY THE SCHOOL NURSE. THE REASON IS BECAUSE THE CHILDREN ARE NOT RECEIVING THE FLUORIDE THEY SHOULD BE FROM WATER.
uh huh

A simple way to remedy that would be to simply brush your teeth, but it seems to be a tradition down here to not brush and to make surte your kids dont brush either... How lousy of a parent are you to have a painful mouth full of broken teeth and still not care enough about your kids to make sure they brush?.... PRETTY FREAKIN LOUSY

If you brush too much this is bad also for the teeth dummy. It's good to rinse with mouthwash you freaky white teeth looking freak. Don't you ever insult the parents around here until you rinse that nasty mouth of yours out. You know what the biggest tradition is around here? People like you from somewhere else telleing your opinion but never answering why you moved here. If you had it so good from your birth place what the hell are you doing here? Maybe because you couldn't hack it or they chased the trash away. You goody two shoed white perfect teethed gook.

Actually...they don't do the fluoride rinse anymore at the school. They use "varnish". It's painted on so to speak.

Educate yourselves. There are pros and cons, myths and legends about fluoride. Here are some helpful links to better educate and help gain your own ideals about fluoride. I rather not preach but teach so take ten minutes out of your day to read each of these articles.

Back in the 70's when people voted against fluoride. The voted no cuz the hippies said it was a way for the government to control our minds. Read the history of west plains book. It's a good read.

Plenty of studies have been done over the years and the results are frightening! Fluoridation has been linked to immune system alteration, musculoskeletal harm, genetic damage, thyroid dysfunction, and even cancer. There is no proof that it promotes tooth health. In fact, overexposure to fluoride has been shown to have a NEGATIVE reaction on tooth enamel, making it more brittle.
Hitler actually used fluoride in the camps on Jews because it has been shown to make people more docile and willing to follow commands. It is not a mere "hippy myth."

I like the hippy myths, they always come true in the end or over time but nooooooo, the smart people think the hippies were dirty tree hugging pot smoken weirdo's, but hippies were cool and still are cool today, peace man.

There is lead in the water. Lead pipes are used from the lead mines in Missouri.

In poor rural areas of Appalachia, bad teeth in children and adults is largely attributed to
* lack of dental care
* inability to visit the dentist 2x/yr for checkups, cleanings, etc

And with children especially...
* high consumption of soft drinks (like Mtn Dew) COMBINED WITH the complete lack of dental care

I wouldn't be surprised if it's the exact same deal in the Ozarks.
