    The people who don't want fluoride in their drinking water are entitled to clean water.
    The people who do want fluoride, can acquire it for themselves.
    Forcing everyone to ingest fluoride, whether they want it or not, by injecting it into a community's water supply, is simply wrong.
    Where I live, there have been several city wide plebiscites on this issue, and the pro fluoride faction has lost.

    by that same logic, people who want to own guns should be able to and the people who don't want to own guns should mind their own business.

    that's because those people are ignorant.

    the benefits of adding fluoride to water supplies greatly exceeds the expense of poor dental hygiene and eases the associated pain and suffering.

    The issue isn't whether fluoride is beneficial.
    The issue is that society does not have the moral right to force people who don't want fluoride in their drinking water to ingest it.

    then you also accept that society does not have the moral authority to ban the personal ownership of any and all firearms.

    you should also accept that society does not have the moral authority to force children to get an education.

    oh, and you should also accept that society does not have the moral authority to enforce laws.

    all hail anarchy!

    Providing clean, unadulterated drinking water is not anarchy.
    And this is not a gun discussion.

    Adding fluoride to drinking water was something that the Americans came up with after WWII.
    By the 1950s, Canada and most of western Europe had jumped on the bandwagon.
    But in the 1970s the Europeans reconsidered the issue, and stopped the fluoridation.
    Since then, a large number of Canadian cities and towns have come to the same conclusion.
    People living in a community are entitled to an unadulterated water supply. Period.
    It is as simple as that.

    As it stands, the majority of people drinking fluoridated tap water worldwide are Americans.

    Reason #23 is rather interesting.

    you are absolutely right... this is not a gun discussion and that is why i used it as a comparison. thank you for proving that your argument is weak, proving that fluoridating water is not a matter of moral authority, and totally invalidating your opinion.

    read this: real scientific reasons why fluoride is important to human beings and other living things. real scientific reasons why fluoride is important to human beings and other living things.

    seeing how canada totally ignores the welfare and health of it's native people, it's no wonder that they also ignore the health of their other citizens.

    with canada's socialized health care, canada can save millions upon millions in health care costs by fluoridating their water and preventing cavities in their citizens. the only issue is that the prevalent ignorance in canada is preventing any and all forms of improvement.
