UK Against Fluoridation

USA - Not a fan of fluoride

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

With regards to the debate of fluoride added to Sarnia-Lambton’s water supply, I wish for you to ponder three questions.

1) Why does fluoridated toothpaste carry the warning "Do not swallow," and "in case of accidental ingestion, contact the poison control centre”?

2) Why does fluoridated water NOT carry the warning?

3) Are you getting your eight cups of water a day? One cup of our tap water contains as much fluoride as a pea-sized serving of toothpaste (about ¼ milligram). Remember you are not supposed to swallow one of them.

As for the alleged claim that fluoride in drinking water benefits the teeth, I do not believe it. Having it applied topically at the dentist, brushing our teeth with it daily, drinking it in our eight cups a day, and cooking with it seems to be an overexposure if you ask me.

Need more info or want some good references let me know: nicholas_wallace@hotmail.com
