Sorry folks, I used another computer and got screwed up with another username. The comment above (by canbyte) is actually mine.

What occurs to me now,partly in relation to the question I posed to Jason, concerns the fact that it isn't just the water that one drinks that is the problem. Besides the bathwater issue, one has to keep in mind that cereals, pastas, etc are all usually processed with fluoridated water before they got to you. One then adds more fluoridated water in the cooking so one is getting a double dose. Nobody seems to be taking such 'off-label' or unaccounted fluoride intake into account into their thinking. See if you can find anything in your kitchen (other than spring water) labeled as to its fluoride content. Since people vary so widely in their habits (food, beverages, smoking, pollutants) how can any expert express a good opinion on anything? I believe this can explain why poor people experience a lot of fluorosis - if you'll excuse the unavoidable stereotyping for the moment, might there not be lots of pasta, pollution, beer, smoking in their lives? Bottom line is that mass medication is a poor way of solving individual problems.

My present thinking is that the 2 million or so that the city could save, should be put into the public health system to improve the dental clinics available to the people who need it most.
