Fluoride is a toxic chemical.  Read the required government warnings regarding toothpaste and mouthwash containing fluoride:

  “Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age.”
  “If you swallow more than used for brushing, get medical
    help or  contact a Poison Control Center right away.”
  “If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed,
    get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center
    right away.”
  “Never give fluoridated mouthwash or mouth rinses to
    children under six years of age, as they may swallow it.”
  “Use non-fluoridated toothpaste or no toothpaste for young

A pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste
contains the same amount of fluoride as
a glass of fluoridated water.

Fluoride In Drinking Water – A Scientific Review of (US) EPA’s Standards – 2006 – 374 pages

One of the most comprehensive reviews of water fluoridation conducted to date. This investigation into water fluoridation looks at a broad spectrum of research. This NRC 2006 report reviewed over 1,000 relevant studies examining the effects of fluoride in drinking water.

On March 22, 2006, a prestigious 12-member panel of the National Research Council completed a three year review of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (US EPA’s) safe drinking water standard for fluoride known as the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG). Following what has become one of the most thorough and objective reviews of the literature in 60 years, the NRC panel unanimously found that the MCLG is too high and asked the EPA to lower the standard in order to protect children against severe dental fluorosis and to protect all groups from bone fracture. At that time the MCLG was set at 4 parts per million (ppm) / 4 milligrams per liter (mg/L). Note: This panel’s learned recommendations do not only pertain to that higher concentration of fluoride in drinking water.

The national, educational non-profit Second Look, with its program the Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative (FTRC) has been addressing the issue of fluoride harm and poisoning in individuals, and is the only organization developing a system to work with people who are ill from the effects of fluoride toxicity, a still unrecognized epidemic.
