    Last year I was part of a local campaign to stop our city from flouridating the water. I learned a lot about how dangerous flouride actually is, and we actually were successful in stopping the water flouridation.

      I do use fluoridated toothpaste, but wouldn't like to drink fluoridated tapwater. Mind you, it's probably full of lord-knows what else!

      As an aside, my gums are a lot quicker to heal since going primal (and I'm not even very good/strict) - since having wisdom teeth out I've developed a gap just the right size to catch meat / veg fibres. A few days ago something obviously got stuck as the whole gum was inflamed and painful. One rinse with anti-whatever mouthwash, and I thought I'd washed away whatever it was, but was expecting a week or so of soreness.

      The next morning, everything was fine!


      Out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are oral bacteria that feast on protein the way plaque bacteria use sugars? I'm just wondering what effects could be caused by meat fibres getting stuck all the time!

        NM: I dont think there are.

        Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!
