    Yikes, scary dental sludge.

    Fluoride Poisoning It's All Over

    So apparently fluoride kills. Who knew?

    What's more scary is fluoride's effects on neurological function. It was infused into water in the concentration camps of WWII in order to keep the inmates docile until extermination. If you think it's in our municipal tap water for any other reason than control, apparently you've underestimated the government.

    beer is full of phytoestrogens, think the Germans knew what they were doing when they enacted Reinheitsgebot?

    Would a filter get rid of the stuff?

    I think reverse osmosis or a distiller are the only ways to remove it from your water.

    Most of the affordable (less than $500) ones that I have read reviews on break fairly easy and usually cause pressure problems if they aren't hooked up by a trained tech. There are reverse osmosis systems that work really well, but they are pretty damned expensive I have found.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    Don't wal-marts have reverse osmosis machines that dispense water for 25 a gallon?

    Also, before you go buying a filter, make sure they're actually putting it in your water. =] My city does not.

    Though there are plenty of other reasons to get a good filter besides fluoride. My city doesn't add it but I have a filter anyway. There's all sorts of nasty things in there. The chemicals they use to treat the water alone are enough to give one pause. I'm glad they're getting rid of water-borne diseases but I'd prefer to remove the chemicals before I drink the water.
