Best of all, even if you stop taking the silver, the skin coloring doesn't go away.


Why would you want it to go away??!!!

Oxygen and hydrogen are both extremely flammable. I would't want stuff that dangerous in my home.

Nothing a little silver solution couldn't fix, I'm sure.

You know what the best part of it is? Silver isn't very toxic so it doesn't really have any other damaging effects.... it's basically just a full-body warning to the rest of the world that you're a giant moron.

I am just glad that the Dictionary people are not "in" this vast worldwide conspiracy. Thanks for the truth, man. Thanks, valiant savior!

What  conspiracy? I merely asked you protectionists to simply look it up. And I get attacked for asking you to be better informed. But you guys are satisfied with the pat answer "it's been studied for decades" without a one of you citing a single study?!? I guess you all just swallowed it whole.

Can't you meanies see that he's Just Asking Questions?!!!1!

You employ a typical distraction effort. But clearly fail to address the core questions or how much poison is ok? You can attack me for asking but you refuse to answer with any meaningful data as others here have. Enjoy your ignorance. Please block me.


Its not poisonous at the levels they add to municipal water. You can tell this by all of the people not poisoned over the past few decades. There's people being not poisoned all over the place.

Hey, look!  Someone who can't spell "fluoride" is shiatting his pants in fear over it!  Well, he certainly seems like a reputable sort.


He's not talking about fluoride, he's talking about flour-ide, when flour is added to water. Maybe he's got a gluten allergy.

born_yesterday: OK, then you can clear this up for me.  I worked at a treatment plant years ago (*treatment plant fistbump*).  You know the open air tanks, pretty early in the process, that have oxygen pumped into them?


*treatment plant fistbump*

You worked in a WASTE water treatment plant. My water has no lumps.

I swear the safety guy told me that if you fell in, you would sink in the poop-water, because the aeration would prevent buoyancy.

You are correct.

 Wear a coast Guard Approved life jacket when
working around aeration tanks where there are no
guardrails to protect you. Because of the volume in
the aeration tank that is occupied by air bubbles, a
person without a floatation device is not buoyant
enough to float or swim in an aeration basin (PDF warning)

He said if you were smart, and kept your wits about you, you would walk to the edge of the tank, find the wall, then walk along to find the ladder out.

I have never heard that but it would beat doing nothing if the basin had a ladder. Most do not!

What a way to die..... drowned in the waste of thousands of people.

heypete: Cretony38: So you looked it up in your dictionary, how'd ya like what you read? So your defense is to attack me for directing you to your own reference and I'm in the wrong? I guess It's only a little poison...

No, my position is to say "a dictionary definition does not tell the whole story and it's silly to rely on just the dictionary in the face of extensive scientific studies that say that it is beneficial".

Would I want to breathe pure fluorine gas? Certainly not. It is, as you point out, poisonous. There's a lot of things that, if taken to excess, are poisonous or harmful but can be beneficial in smaller quantities. Iron, for example, is necessary for hemoglobin in the blood, but if you ingesting excessive iron can cause failure of the liver, heart, and pancreas. Same thing with antibiotics (which are effectively poison) and other medicines. Drinking too much water can be dangerous to your health.

Numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies show that adding fluoride compounds to drinking water improves dental health with extremely rare side effects. National and international public health agencies composed of scientists, doctors, dentists, and other experts recommend doing so.

Are you suggesting that I disregard scientific results which are based on decades of study, leading experts from around the world, and national and international public health agencies because of a dictionary definition?


The real problem is the amount of prescription medicine that doesn't get filtered out of the water things like viagra and antidepressants.  Sometimes after drinking water I get boners yet am apathetic about fapping it.

Of course Fluoride is bad. Dr Mercola told me so. My right wing conservative conspiracy believing mother-in-law uses xylitol toothpaste with no fluoride in it and her town in Washington voted down a measure to fluoridate their water. But she's old, so when her teeth fall out, we can just blame it on that.

How about chlorine? ferric oxide?, alum?, hydrchloric acid?, sodium hydroxide? I build water treatment plants.  All of these chemicals are routinely put in water sold for human consumption. In order for water to pass standards in Texas, it must have a free chlorine residual of .2 ppm.
I love the flouridiots.  They scream about it when they have no idea what else goes on.

I just don't like the idea of my beer being adulterated with fluoride. Many Portland breweries use the city's (delicious) tap water as the basis for their beers. Adding fluoride introduces a change that is neither wanted nor desired.

Keep fluoride out of the water. If not for the childrens' sakes, at least for the beer's.
