Humans are 55 percent to 65 percent water. And our marvelous brains are 75 percent water.
Fluoride is in approximately 70 percent of tap water in the U.S. Even China considers it rat poison. Think about that for a minute.
There is a barrier between our brain and our blood, which is great because, otherwise, every dangerous element could flow right in. However, the brain's pineal gland needs more blood, so it's open to more toxins. Fluoride likes to go there--and stay there. The possibility that it calcifies the pineal gland, causing disease and low IQ, etc. is pretty probable. But much of science, medicine and government agencies are paid well to deny that.
The pineal gland is the size of a grain of rice! What goes on there? It is the Third Eye, the doorway to higher consciousness!
In my opinion, it's of utmost importance to human survival to eliminate fluoride from our water. I drink distilled water. Certain scientific experts will tell you this is dangerous as that water has no organic mineral content. We can get our minerals from many sources, not just drinking water.
Tom's makes fluoride-free toothpaste, and you can find it most everywhere. And what's wrong with baking soda?
The human body does not require fluoride at all. It's not like salt. Read the commercial toothpaste label about kids swallowing toothpaste and how dangerous it is. Also, we must all realize by now that the Creatures who rule over us care nothing about our children or their teeth.

You can buy distilled water at the store in a convenient, toxic plastic bottle. Or buy a distiller, which requires electricity, for around $200. There are also ways to do it using sand and glass and sunlight.
It may not be too late to demand the end to fluoridation in this country. Today, 97 percent of western Europe does not fluoridate! Israel will remove fluoride from its water by 2014. The U.S. is No. 1 in fluoridation world-wide.
Yeah! WE'RE NO. 1!
