I love how this thread is developing.

One technical note here. Be aware that there are several types of 
fluoride. There is calcium fluoride that can be a nutrient in some 
limited quantities and there is sodium fluoride that is put into the 
water supply which is a toxin. It should also be noted that what is 
delivered to the water companies is actually a mess of toxic waste 
including depleted uranium and other substances.
