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.
