Dear snah-ga,
At the moment there is no clear evidence of adverse effects. The UK?s
National Osteoporosis Society has issued a leaflet on fluoride which
states the following:
"Is the level of fluoride in water related to the incidence of osteoporosis? 
Studies into the effects of fluoridated water on bone have been
conflicting, some suggesting that there is an increase in the
incidence of hip fracture in communities with relatively high levels
of fluoride in the water supply. Such studies have been criticised
however, as the increase in incidence of hip fracture may also be
attributed to factors such as body weight and smoking habits. A recent
study in Cleveland has shown that after adjustment for factors such as
lower body weight and physical inactivity the incidence of hip
fracture was not increased in areas of high fluoride concentration.

What does the NOS feel about fluoridation of water supplies? 
The NOS feels the benefits of dental protection conferred by drinking
water containing one part per million of fluoride, far outweighs any
concerns regarding its possible impact on bone."


The Cleveland study referred to in this leaflet appears on this link

"Fluoride in drinking water and risk of hip fracture in the UK: a
case-control study"
Press release on the study

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you

Fluoride is a byproduct of aluminium-production and is a poison.
Chemo-therapy is done with components of mustardgas and is a poison.
Almost everybody dies after chemotherapy, because it kills your goog
immune-cells.But till today chemotherapy is used by every hospital.
Long use of fluorided drinkwater extracts calcium from your bones and
can cause osteoroposis and paget.Why is on every tube of toothpaste a
warning that it kills children under the age of two years if swallowed
the one centimeter toothpaste on their brush ?

Answerfinder-ga answered your question using current studies and gave
the answer that his/her research determined.  If you already had an
answer in mind you should have stated you needed evidence backing up
your theory, if not then shame on you for using this forum to get your
point across at the mercy of the researchers rating!

I must agree with Bowler!!!
It appears that you already have strong feelings against fluoride and
you just needed a place to vent those feelings!!!
Shame on you for misleading the researchers here and giving such a
poor rating just because you don't agree!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well fluoride is used in water to kill micro viruses,but having said
this it is also the main chemical in rat poison,the factories used to
barrel it up and dump it off shore,use a .5 carbon water micro filter
to have clean water,the pipes the water come from are normaly 30 to 60
years old, and you would be consuming far worse than fluoride
