Francine, scientific fact; "Unbeknown to most people, too much oxygen can be toxic. After several days of breathing nothing but pure oxygen, you’d begin to experience nausea, dizziness, muscle twitches, and convulsions. You might even die."

Once again Garben ... people without the knowledge attack the messenger and not the message. Fluoride does not work systemically to reduce caries rates (both the CDC and ADA admit this now). But it does increase the rate of dental fluorosis (estimated by the WHO to be as high as 40%). About 10% of those require some form of dental treatment to resolve the cosmetic defect. As pointed out by Dr. Hardy Limeback DDS, PhD (Biochemistry), past chairman dept Preventive Dentistry Toronto, "Dentist spend more time fixing teeth related to water fluoridation than what it was ever thought to prevent in the first place."

I am surprised at how many letters have been written about this topic. I am also surprised at how consistently "fluoride" is misspelled.

"They believe flouride is toxic to humans, and should not be used at all in drinking water!"

They believe it to be not know it to be.

Anything in excess or comsumed in large amounts is toxic. That would include oxygen and water.
