A quick word about state-sponsored mass medication (I mean fluoridated water)

YES, YES, YES, fluoride is good for your teeth if applied TOPICALLY. However, swallowing it has never been proven either safe or effective and HAS been linked to problems ranging from certain cancers (osteosarcomas) to alzheimers.

Let me leave you with this one, tiny question: If fluoride is so safe, then why is there a warning on the freaking label to call the poison control center if you swallow more than a pea-size drop AND why has the American Dental Association started advising parents NOT to reconstitute infant formula with regular, fluoridated tap water?
