Can America drink non-fluoridated drinking water?

Tap water contains certain amounts of flouride.

I have read recently that flouride in tap water can lower the intelligence of children and if it is also a neurotoxin then why is it still being added not only to our municipal drinking water but to bottled water in many cases not to mention added to most toothpastes?

I will have to think about this. I know I don't like the taste of water with tap water frozen ice in it.

The tea or the water has a chloride or flouride flavor that just isn't too great. I prefer the flavor of purified bottled water and/or filtered water. Since they make it so easy to just drink it and forget it, people are unintentionally drinking a substance that just isn't healthy at all.

So with this new information I have gathered I will indeed try to avoid tap water unless I first filter out the toxins which include but are not limited to flouride and chloride.

No fluoride from my underground well. Not that I would stop drinking it if there were. Chlorine, either. But then -- who knows what IS coming out of my well?

Some places have natural fluoride in their water. It can cause mottled teeth if there is a lot.

Well water that is nowhere near a Fracture Drilling Process is probably best. I would not want to drink methane flavored well water, lol.

That is just so terrible. Good grief.

I agree with you, lookatdesktop . By the way: a common typo is flouride, but it is fluoride. After all, water with flour in it probably won't make you sick... Heheh.

I think flour would make it a bit murky.
