Tom, that's not entirely correct. Fluoride is a proven toxin that will
kill some plants and animals in even small doses. There's also ample
concern regarding fluoride causing human bone and ligament disease, cancer,
and brain damage to beg the simple question: If the goal of fluoridation is
to protect kid's teeth against cavities, why put it in public water systems
shared by millions of people? Why water our lawns, flush septic systems,
etc, when the sole target is the teeth of children?
