Fluorid is in MOST TOOTHPASTE (thats why it says on the back if swallowed, please call poison control) go figure!!!

It is also in most bottled water, if the bottle does not say if it does or not, you will have to call them direct and see

Just speculating, (I didn't nod it,) maybe because fluoridation has been a favorite bugbear in some political circles for 40 years or more. Or maybe because this subject was discussed and these links were posted in June.

From observing Astorians.com, one might conclude that it isn't very effective at that.

I agree, they should stop putting fluoride in our water supply.  Think of how that money could be better used by making sure that vaccines have enough preservatives in them, and that dental fillings are made of strong enough metals.   :evil:

They put flu vaccine in the water?!

Just kidding.  :wink:

I never liked the idea of flouride in our water supply. There are few people who don't use toothpaste with flouride, what's the point, except for making the companies who supply the flouride richer.

You know when fluoridation first began?  Nineteen hundred and forty-six. Nineteen forty-six. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.
 
I first became aware of it during the physical act of love.  A profound sense of fatigue... a feeling of emptiness followed.  Luckily I was able to interpret these feelings correctly.  Loss of essence.  I can assure you it has not recurred.  Women sense my power and they seek the life essence.  I do not avoid women... but I do deny them my essence.

Alice,

How bad is the water here in New York City? Do you recommend drinking filtered water, or does it really make a difference?

Thirsty

 

Dear Thirsty,

You assume New York City water is bad, but in fact, it's quite good! The NYC Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) rigorously tests the city's tap water and reports their findings to the public annually. (For the official report, visit the DEP's water quality page.) By most counts, the quality of NYC's tap water is something to drink to!

In particular, three of the major culprits for drinking water contamination are lead, bacteria, and disinfectants or disinfectant byproducts. New York City stacks up pretty well in terms of each of them.

    * New York City's water supplies are virtually lead-free. There is the possibility that lead can leach into water from old plumbing, but sampling indicates that the vast majority of NYC taps produce water containing only minute, insignificant quantities of lead (if any). Those worried that their tap might be among the very few with dangerous lead levels can call 311 for a free testing kit.
    * Although the common bacteria Giardia and Cryptosporidium have been detected in some water samples, there is no evidence that these bugs have caused any illness among New Yorkers. The DEP acknowledges the potential risk of gastrointestinal infection due to these water-borne bacteria, but maintains that this risk is very minor. For details related to the ongoing monitoring of Giardia and Cryptosporidium, visit NYCDEP's Waterborne Disease Risk Assessment Program.
    * All NYC drinking water is treated with chlorine (to kill harmful bacteria and viruses), as well as fluoride (to help prevent tooth decay) and orthophosphate (to help prevent metals, including lead, from being released from plumbing). Some studies report that over a period of decades, exposure to chlorine and its byproducts are associated with an increased risk for certain types of cancer. However, this risk is relatively small compared to those associated with non-chlorinated water.

So, whether or not filtering one's water would be beneficial depends both on how safe the water is to begin with and how effective the filter is at making it safer. Some households require no filtration and others require special filters for specific contaminants. For help selecting an appropriate filter, visit the NSF International Public Health and Safety Company's Home Water Treatment Devices web page.

For more information on local water quality, call the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1.800.426.4791.

Of course, there  are places  on this earth, and I have been to  them, that would kill to have  the level of clean drinking water  we take  for granted. Of course , it could be improved, but, let's   not get  'UFO'  theory on it. :lol:
