Fluoride doesn´t do much to your brain it doesn´t cross the blood-brain barrier easily.

You can still drink up to 4 cups and not stress too much. They don't say anything about non-black teas. :wink: I wonder where Pu-erh falls into that?

I don´t think it makes a difference between black or green tea since the fluoride is in the leaf when the plant is growing. What could make a difference is that they used very cheap tea that people typically use to make sun tea in Georgia which is lower grade, and thus older leaf. While most expensive tea only uses the two youngest leaves and the bud. The older the leaf is the more fluoride and aluminum gets concentrated in it. And the other thing is how well do these aluminum fluoride compounds get absorbed by the body? They could just go right through, I don´t know.

Fluoride is not necessary to make the water safe to drink. It is added for medical purposes, so adding fluoride to a public water supply is forced medication. Maybe we can add Ritlin next?

If fluoride is a natural element of tea, I'm not worried about it. Tea is really one of nature's wonders and if there's anything in it that's not good by itself, there's probably something else in it to balance it out. This claim has been made by some about tea extract, saying it can be harmful because it omits some of the natural ingredients that balance each other out in real green tea.

If tea is naturally healthy, do we really need to worry about the individual components? Nature seems to have done a much better job in balancing our food products than man has done. I trust nature, I don't trust man (or Monsanto, or the FDA).

Ah, but we don't eat the pits. I agree that everything natural is not safe, but for a thousand years people have been drinking tea and many valid claims made about its health benefits. I also recently read that the fluoride put into water is not the same type as what is found to be naturally in the food chain.

Without fluoride those with bad dental hygiene and unable to pay for dental care are the ones that are hurt the most, this is just worsened by those that use fluoride free toothpaste. Ask any dental professional that has experience in the areas with and without fluoridated water. Hopefully real public healthcare will be available in the US soon solving the problem.

Dental professionnals will not really emphasize to people to not eat junk foods and piles of sugar daily, starting from a young age at that. Can't blame poor people in America where a burger with pop costs the same price as a broccoli head. Try to feed a family with 4 broccoli heads.

Well, actually something can be done in those dire situations. The inexpensive tooth-rotting fast food is not the only solution for the poor people. Hopefully, with more and more immigrants coming in, people will start to learn about how to buy cheap rice, bulghur and lentils and cook them. Of course, being poor, there's not much more in rice than ric, some lentils and cheap soy sauce, but at least it's better than burgers and pops.
