We have alternative medicine guy who is all over the radio locally. I think I agree with him about 60% of the time. I’m all for trying diet and nutrition over prescription drugs and surgery whenever possible.
On the other hand he rails against fluoride. I think it’s contribution to improving dental health is pretty well established at this point.
” I think its contribution to improving dental health is pretty well established at this point.”
Its also pretty well unnecessary because of changes in the diets, culture, and hygiene practices of Americans.
I will not drink water with flouride-I drank bottled water in the city because of it. I’ve heard that some cities are discontinuing the fluoride in their water-must be a reason. Why not stay away from the sugary stuff, brush and floss, and teach the kids to do the same? People’s teeth aren’t the government’s business, any more than what we eat or drink is...
Flouride is a by product of aluminum production. Decades ago Alcoa didn’t have a good way to dispose of all the flouride it was producing so they convinced the government to add it to drinking water. It is definitely poisonous and should not be consumed on a regular basis. If you want to use flouride to prevent cavities use it in toothpaste or an oral rinse. Please don’t make every man woman and child in town ingest it on a daily basis.
