Never had any problems.

Why is fluoride bad?

I agree that baking soda is very abrasive. I use hydrogen peroxide. I recently read about the so-called 'oil-pulling' and I may try that. I am skeptical, but what the heck. Maybe I'll finally find a use for that pumpkin seed oil that I just had to buy.

I would start World War III if I answered that. Better to google it than turn a retirement thread into a battlefield. (anything you read from the ADA is not research)

A good article (fair, balanced) on fluoridation of public water systems.

I would point out that other countries don't fluoridate and studies show that tooth decay is no more prevalent in those countries than in the USA.

SIDEBAR: Portland, Oregon voters have voted against fluoridation of their water.

And I found this article, which cites info from CDC and ADA, to be very interesting!

Dang. No offense but I saw some of that this morning before leaving for work and was eager to see if the battle was still waging. Forgot about moderators.

Go to Second Opinions UK for interesting opinion on fluoride, all of which is backed by proven research.

Is being a mod fun? I dunno if I could do it. It's kind of cool that it takes a cyber village to keep CDF a cool place.

Being a mod is good and bad. Good because you can help people and make the rude idiots tone it down. Good because you feel that you are doing something worthwhile. Bad because there are some really crazy people who like to purposely be mean or rude or just act like crazy people and they are a pain to deal with. Things go on behind the scenes with them that can get nasty. That's why I just stick to two relatively calm forums. BTW there's a rule against discussing moderator action and we don't want to get close to breaking a rule but I know I was always curious about mods. We'd better change the subject.

I wonder how many mods there are? I also wonder how many posters are here sometimes. Mind boggling.

Still no water in the basement and the melt is running down my back stone steps from the barn like a small creek.

YAY
