UK Against Fluoridation

Dentists Blame Bottled Water for Low Fluoride Levels.

By Dr. Mercola
Some Illinois dentists are reportedly worried that their patients' decision to drink bottled water in lieu of fluoridated tap water means they're not getting enough of this verified poison on a daily basis.
The report, which was published by WGEM News out of Quincy, Illinois, includes so many misnomers and widely propagated fluoridation myths that it would be laughable… except that it's entirely serious – and probably going to spur some people to unnecessarily think they "need" to get fluoride from their tap.
So let me set the record straight. Your body doesn't need fluoride anymore than it needs rat poison (and did you know that rat poison is another common use for fluoride?).
While there are many reasons why I don't recommend drinking bottled water, the fact that it's not fluoridated isn't one of them. Many bottled waters actually make a point of adding fluoride back into the water, so if you are drinking bottled water please make sure yours is fluoride-free...............................
Water fluoridation is ineffective at preventing dental decay. Rates of dental caries in non-fluoridated regions are often lower than in fluoridated areas
Fluoride is often said to build stronger teeth, but the fluorapatite layer formed on your teeth from fluoride is a mere six nanometers thick (you'd need 10,000 of these layers to get the width of a strand of hair)
Fluoride is a toxic chemical that accumulates in your tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes, and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction
Fluoride accumulates in your body over time, and children are particularly at risk for adverse effects of overexposure
For strong teeth, avoid fluoridated water and fluoridated toothpaste. Make sure you consume a diet rich in whole foods, fermented vegetables, and grass-fed meats, which will ensure you're getting plenty of the minerals that are so important for strong teeth
