Things not to ask while at the dentist:

Why are the holistic folk against fluoride?

Before I could say dental floss everyone but the dentist was within 2 feet of my persons and I was teeth deep in charts and graphs and scientific data and flipbook presentations.

Fluoride is poison… While in dental school I said this to an instructor and was asked why I would say such a thing…”because it is proven to make the masses docile; you know like Hitler did in WW2.”

😐 I wasn’t the favorite student after that comment.

The only thing I’ve read so far that I agree with is that it shouldn’t be added to the public water system. I’m a big fan of choice.

With that said, I think there’s bigger things to argue about.

I’m a trained dental hygienist. I have to say you are right… Bigger issues than that…But fluoride was discovered as a natural element. As for being added to public water, look at all the mindless drinking non fluoride bottled water, in my opinion is a waste of time and money. Sure people want to decide for themselves, but where I work at (idoc dental Dept) all the non brushing/ flossing, candy eating, drug use rampant decay… Need some good ol fluoride…lol ☺️.. just my professional opinion. πŸ˜‰

The reason they add it to water is certain plants had so much excess fluoride waste they made a deal with the government so they could get rid of their waste

Don’t quote me on that but something along them lines I heard them saying in a documentary

I’m also a dental hygienist and totally agree! People don’t realize how rampant decay was before fluoride was introduced, and now with all the bottled water….without Fluoride…being consumed, decay is rearing it’s ugly head again!

Early in the 20th century, dentists discovered that fluoride reduced the number of cavities in their patients’ teeth. Soon, amidst much debate and rancor, fluoride was regularly added to American public drinking water supplies. Fluoridation has been hailed by some as a triumph of public health but it was also, as historian Frank Zelko points out this month, a profitable way to put to use a waste byproduct from the production of fertilizer.

Research it your self fleming

I’m not discounting that fact, but the way it’s worded sounds like a conspiracy. Sounds mutually beneficial to all involved.

Mitchell · Oct 17, 2018 at 7:53 pm

Well that’s exactly what it is that’s why I mentioned it and notice I gave a source from a state college notice the .edu that adds credit to my source

Well, again…BS

Based on the comments here I realized that I’m not friends with any hippies. πŸ‘

As a water treatment engineer, I didn’t want to get into that discussion. πŸ˜†
