*Acute fluoride toxicity occurring from the ingestion of optimally
fluoridated water is impossible.104 The amount of fluoride necessary to
cause death for a human adult (155 pound man) has been estimated to be 5-10
grams of sodium fluoride, ingested at one time.140 This is more than
10,000-20,000 times as much fluoride as is consumed at one time in a single
8-ounce glass of optimally fluoridated water.*
So, you need to ingest about sixty gallons at one time (we can even suppose
you have a whole day to do that).  I suspect that if you were able to do
that you would need to deal with other problems unrelated to too much
