    GOOD! My local water service stopped flouride many years back - they do still treat with chlorine.
    I read the quarterly 'water quality reports', and check on levels of various things. So far, no problems.

    It's not so much the fluoride here that concerns me....It's ALL the "other" contaminants: (chemicals,) which they refuse to disclose that scares me!
    Too many to list!

    In my work I've changed a lot of water heaters with hard deposits in them. Lime and calcium will build up but is soft and flaky. The fluoride makes it hard as a rock.
    Municipal water that is treated, is basically toilet to mouth hygiene and needs to be run through a R/O filter.

    Here in Phoenix, I have to replace water heaters every 2 years now! Talk about HARD WATER! It's weird. White concrete....last few years weve replace 90% of our pipes too! All metal ones are solid packed.

    If I remember reading correctly, Fluoride was a by-product of aluminum manufacturing that would have otherwise been disposed of as a hazardous waste until someone convinced the idiots in charge to mix it with the water and let people dispose of it down the toilet?
