My understanding is that the usual American spelling is "gray", whereas most other places spell it "grey". I could be wrong, and I don't think it matters.

of course it doesn't....
listen I adore intellectual love making as much as any Sid and Nancy... Vicious....a poet's heart beats in the breast of it....but synthetic heroin is just not the same buzz.
the fluoride to crazy land leaves little room to defend intelligent life here on earth...reasonably. in a flower stickered Volkswagen named herbie.....please quit drinking the water.

There's no fluoride in my water - and if there was, the bird crap would neutralize it.
(Actually it wouldn't, because both are alkaline, but why let truth spoil a good story?)

no... there are only six Countries...who soak themselves in petroleum product and play with fire. Fluoridation of public water is on its way out...and the sooner the better.

Grey/gray mean the same...but for some reason, gray is used mostly in the US, and grey in other english speaking countries...I think there's other words like that, it makes no difference to me...I can't imagine it would to others...but then who knows...

Again, if 'possibly' reducing (not eliminating) tooth cavities is the 'only' or 'main' argument for water fluoridation, does this adequately justify the practice?
Please, (re)watch the first segment of recon's posted video--'An Inconvenient Tooth' on page 12 of this thread.
Is the current legal dosage of fluoride in our drinking water truly, scientifically safe for human consumption over much/all of one's lifetime--without adverse side effects?
And if indeed fluoride's use in fostering healthier teeth is better/best applied topically, as in directly to/on the teeth via brushing with fluoridated toothpastes, then why the heck are we being compelled to ingest it into our body system, on a routinely very regular basis, to constantly affect our entire bodies in (unknown, perhaps adverse) ways that weren't intended?
And all for what--possibly reducing cavities??
I mean, don't the health departments of our governments have other more pressing health concerns to look into?
Please, watch that video--at least, the first part.

An interesting video and worthy of perusal. It makes assumptions and those assumptions must be ascribed to in order to find credence in its claims.
The picture painted of steaming piles of toxic fluoride being dumped by lunatics into the streams and water sources of the country has to be believed for one thing.
The American Dental Association states that fluoride is safe and beneficial to children AND adults and reduces cavities by 25 percent.
Why shouldn't I believe that?
In the most litigious nation known to man, where are the class action lawsuits? If there was a buck to be made in the land of making a buck, why is no one trying to make a buck on this dastardly crime against humanity. The tobacco industry PAID; the asbestos folks PAID. Indeed, any product with a hint of harm gets sued and someone PAYS.
Topical application sounds sensible and no doubt IS. However, we have the worst medical care in the world and Dental care leads the list. There is NO dental care available to the average American. So, a lovely dreamworld where mom and dad take the kids in for their monthly fluoride treatment just isn't something that could happen. Nope, treating the water with trace amounts is the only practical application for this beneficial treatment.
I've read that bananas cause cancer. I've read that virtually EVERYTHING causes cancer.
I've see nothing that leads me to believe that fluoride is on a par with thalidomide or even saccharine.
One thing I do know, poor dental care is the CAUSE of endless health problems. THAT is a fact. People die from abscessed teeth, they spend a lifetime in poor health because their teeth are rotting in their head. They have minor and major ailments they live with simply because they have uncared for teeth. FACTS.
The benefits of fluoride certainly outweigh any detriments alleged in that video, at least by any standard of investigation I'm aware of.
Provide universal dental care for all citizens of this country and I'll jump right on board the anti-fluoride bandwagon. In the meantime, gimme a glass....

You know what all of this sounds like to me...damned if you do, and damned if you don't...
There's a site that comes on the internet, almost on a daily basis. with everything one can imagine, that's bad for you to eat/use/buy...and then we are offered all kinds of new treatments for all kinds of ailments...for me, I use toothpaste with what is stated to have the allowed amount of fluoride...and those that are not satisfied with using it just don't...
