"A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas."

Why do we still put fluoride in our drinking water? Even if there's just a chance it's causing a small part of what the Harvard study found, isn't that enough to outweight the potential benefit to teeth health?

Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Wouldn't it be funded by the Dentist industrial complex? If we eliminate fluoride cavities might go up, thus more business for the dentists.

HAHAHAHAHAhahaha

But, hilarity aside...

I'm sure unflouridated water and good dental hygiene is more effective than flouridated water and even average dental hygiene.
