The risk peaked for boys who drank more highly fluoridated water between the ages of 6 and 8 years -- a time at which children undergo a major growth spurt. By the time they were 20, these boys got bone cancer 5.46 times more often than boys with the lowest consumption. No effect was seen for girls.

I think they should take this out of the water all together. If this was a such a good idea then every country would be doing it. We are one of the few that still put this crap in the drinking water. If science says put it in the water what scientist are the rest of the world using?

Americans were always told this will keep your teeth from looking like British people. If it is at the risk of killing me I don't want white teeth. I would rather live longer with jacked up teeth.

I cannot believe we are still doing this in developed countries. How do people sit back and let the government poison them for no reason. Please get a filter people and get his toxic material out of your water.

I think that we can keep it in the water if we keep all the other things out of the water. Fluoridation does not work well when there are chemicals already in the water. It definitely does not work well in the presence of lead. Until they can get all the other factors out they will need to halt fluoridation.

I think we should go back to the old way and drink natural water only. They have no idea what they are doing.

I have a filter. Me and my family do not wish to be poisoned.

The evidence supporting the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of fluoridation of community water supplies comes from multiple sources covering 50 years of legitimate research published in peer reviewed journals, including both long term studies on large populations,

How ever did this from the beginning was a sick man. It is a shame they have a global hold on water. What will they do next air? Will we be charged to breate?

I have lived in other countries and they water just taste different here in the US. When I say this is not a compliment. Even if this is helping our teeth it tastes awful and I think it is harming us.

The most obvious reason to end fluoridation is that it is now known that fluoride’s main benefit comes from topical contact with the teeth, not from ingestion.

Makes perfect sense to me. Give me something I can rub on my test and just plain old water to drink please.
