    I came from a town where the water has a higher than usual fluoride concentration. I've conceived 3 times without a problem, have great teeth though.

    That is what we call anecdotal evidance. It is importante to look at the studies. It is aslo important to understand where the fluroide comes from. A lot of it comes from China where they have found naturally occuring nuclear isotopes in the fluoride mines. That would make you infertile.

    Based on the findings, the chronic exposure to high levels of F can be one of the factors that influence intellectual development in infants.

    Like anything it affects each person in a different way, as we all have different capacities to use our normal elimination pathways. That said, there is no way I would want excess fluoride in my body, especially when ttc, my opinion anyway. I grew up with no fluoride and havent had one hole in my teeth, it mostly goes down to the microflora in your mouth and how much sugar you have eaten, and you lack of other minerals (or lack of nutrient absorption). You are right we do need to educate ourselves

    It shouldn't matter where the studies come from. It is a fact the fluoride is dose related. If you drink 8 glasses of water per day plus drink fluoridated beer and wine your eventually going to get a high dose. Also the company putting the fluoride in the water may mess up the dose. So why risk it. I am not selling water filters either.

    I think the average reader of a governmental report on fluoridation in a country which has been fluoridating its water for over 50 years would expect to read studies performed in their own country. However, virtually no health studies have been done in Australia on any organ or tissue other than the teeth. This is a particularly egregious omission because a previous review form this same agency over 17 years ago (NHMRC 1991) actually recommended that some health studies be done. This included recommending that fluoride bone levels be measured so that there would be a better handle on epidemiological studies on the effects. The NHMRC (1991) also recommended that the many anecdotal reports that some citizens are particularly sensitive to fluoride be investigated scientifically. This also has not been done. The guiding principle in Australia - as well as other fluoridating countries - seems to be "if you don't look, you don't find." Which also means that when you apply systematic reviews to the literature - no matter how sophisticated the analyses might be - it is highly likely that there will be no damage to report.
    By the way fluoride in Queensland is imported from China who considers it to be too toxic to put in their water supply.

    There are a lot of reasons for infertility rates dropping everywhere in the western world an fluoride could be one of them in theory. why risk it. You could just listen to Australian government tell you its fine although they have done no reasearch on it.
