Don't drink the water

Drink "A new Harvard University study found that boys who drink water with levels of fluoride considered safe by federal guidelines are five times more likely to have a rare bone cancer than boys who drink unfluoridated water. Fluoride has been banned from drinking water throughout Europe." -- Alex Jamieson.

Yesterday I was half joking about there being something wrong with water from the tap and bottle. Although this data is from America and obviously the levels of floride in their/your water will be different to ours it does give you pause for thought that the safe amount apparently coming through the tap is taken to dangerous levels by the food we eat. Inevitably the Wikipedia has further information. Again, like Jack I ask. Is it safe?

  1. Adding fluoride chemicals into water supplies has been proven to be ineffective at reducing tooth decay, harmful to health and a waste of money.
