Fluoride has no taste or smell

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

143naf Time and again we hear and read the conspiracy theorists and objectors to fluoridation (and I must add that I too am against it because it does not, actually, have any benefits) that their water is full of fluoride and that they can smell and taste it.

Erm, sorry, but you cannot smell nor taste fluoride. It is tasteless and odorless. What you are smelling and tasting is chlorine and whatever else may be a problem in your drinking water. Predominately the taste and smell – unless you have sulfur in your water – will be from the chemical used to treat the water against pathogens, and this will be chlorine.

Fluoridation is not good but not because you can taste it. Fluoride is, in the wrong amount, actually not good for our teeth at all and especially not the teeth of (young) children.

So, why then is the government, and not just the US one, so hell-bent on trying to get all public drinking water fluoridated?

Some people consider fluoride, which is considered an accumulative toxin, like arsenic, a neural pathway agent, which could be true, and thus fluoridation might be attempted in order to sedate people, for lack of a better word; to make them passive.

Thinking what we may, the point I am trying to make is that taste and smell does not indicate the presence of fluoride. Fluoride is, let me reiterate, tasteless and odorless and thus you can neither taste nor smell it in your drinking water. Period!
