We are not dead.  How many people are killed by fluoride poison each day?
 Year?  Decade?

*Does* it affect the bones and organs and brains in the amounts it is
presented?  If it does, apparently it doesn't do very much ... or maybe that
is why Americans are slipping behind these other countries in education?
 The benefits of fluoridated water (reduction in tooth decay and the very
serious problems that that causes) far outweigh the costs (it makes some
people nervous because *if get too much* *you might die!!*).

I haven't done more than thirty minutes research into this though so
something might be eluding me.  I don't know how much is retained in the
body.  Experimental evidence seems to suggest that we're doing fine, though.
