Sorry guinness i should have perhaps made a new thread although a lot of people are talking about fluoride here and would like to reach out to them.I actually had someone from nestle come to my door here in shorooq this evening and currently i am buying bottled masafi water from the supermarket so thought it might be time to change to delivered quantaties of water instead.Will not be going with nestle. Good luck with your research.http://www.consumerhealth.org/articles/display.cfm?ID=19990303222823
But why drag up a post over a year old to comment on the health effects of fluoride? And a new poster to boot. Dodgy!!!
Random post Cinta! And I have to agree with Zannie - dentists in the US prescribe fluoride to children if they are mainly drinking water without fluoride.
Actually, Fluoride in very small doses can be beneficial to you, especially your teeth:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_fluoridationIn the UK, Flouride is added to the mains water supply for this reason. I've spoken to dentists here in the UAE and they confirm they see far more children with cavities here and no flouride in water is one of the reasons. Yes, I agree it's not good for you, especially in children, as you'll notice most children's toothpastes have a much lower dose as they are more likely to swallow the toothpaste than spit it out. However, the amounts in water is very minimal, and much lower than in your standard toothpaste.
Flouride...I am shocked at how many people think flouride is good for you. If you run some searches in google you will find out how bad it is for you and your family. IMHO dont buy any water with fluoridehttp://www.holisticmed.com/fluoride/http://www.nofluoride.com/
