Could be too some have stronger teeth than others....I'm guessing mine were not real strong.
Fluoride is only part of taking care of your teeth. It will not prevent all cavities, and it was not the cause of your mouth "full of dental work".

Oh I know what it's all about and I have said many times I ate/consumed lots of sugars and carbs all my early life, but the great saviour fluoride didn't save them. I've made huge food changes and don't count on fluoride for my dental health NOW.

Fluoride. Prevents. Cavities.

I can't be more clear about it than that.

But don't forget to floss.
Wonder what it's doing for the other bones/joints in our bodies. I don't feel we should be forced mass medicated via our public waters. Use the "F" toothpaste.

Are you a dentist too?

It is not "mass medication"

Fluoride is an element naturally found in ground water. In order to be used as a medication it would have to be present in doses much higher than in any source to which it was not added. It isn't.

There is no evidence that fluoridated water harms bones or joints.

My family had 4 children. I am the oldest. They went from well water, no fluoride until I was two. Then my brother was born and about the same time the home was hooked up to city water, with fluoride. I always had cavities from a very young age, even had some it baby teeth. I would brush like crazy but still get them. My brother and two younger sisters didn't have any filling until about high school age.

Our family would be a case study for the benefits of fluoride. My mom discussed this with long time neighbors with children in the same age group, same thing with their families. The whole neighborhood was hooked up to city water at the same time.

YES! Dentists used to do fillings by the entire quadrants on almost everyone. Now with fluoride, cavities are just occasional for many people. I'm not sure why you think dentists have profited from this and are part of your conspiracy. Dentists promotoe fluoride because it greatly reduces cavities. Name another industry besides dentistry that has similarly tried to put themselves out of business.

It's mass medication and there is a lot of info on arthritis and hip fractures and other stuff. The Stuff they are adding to waters comes from China in heavy duty bags. Not from the ground water in China.

I never said dentists profited from this...the industries have profited, did you not read my comments on the industries where this stuff comes from, it's waste by products.

Now it's being bagged in China and shipped to the U.S. for our water supplies.

This whole thing was started by Alcoa and Mellon money....I mentioned this many times in my info.

Am I the only one who gets and believes this history.

Simplify this for me.....where do I pick up my check for promoting fluoride?

Why do dentists promote it if they are not profiting?
