Fluoridation of drinking water.....

There is a movement afoot to stop fluoridation of water because it is being blamed for teeth and gum deformity in some people. It is also classified as a potential carcinogen. Opposing this group are some scientists who have shown that fluoride helps to increase bone density in people with osteoporosis. In recent molecular research on fluoride intake by the cells of the body, it was shown that fluoride is only picked up by cells that are already damaged. Normally functioning cells do not concentrate fluoride inside them. This research indicates that it is not fluoride that causes cell damage, and that the interior cell concentration of fluoride is a post-damage event.
