It doesn't, does it? I hope I'm wrong because I've been drinking it for about a decade... but the rumor was that it was going to start getting phased out because North American manufacturing has all moved to China and they no longer need to dispose of it.

Some very cursory research leads me to believe that the kind of fluoride used in manufacturing aluminum and the kind used in drinking water are different. Also, fluoridation takes place all over the world, not just in the us. The WHO recommends it.

It seems it's been banned in almost all of Europe... only 5% of the world is fluoridated and most of that is in the US and Canada. More and more places in Canada are banning it also. Even if it's perfectly healthy, now that I think about it, the compulsory medication is kind of annoying.

I don't know that it's accurate to say it's banned. It has been discontinued in some countries and some countries fluoridate salt instead.

In Windsor, the only town's document's I'm able to see on my phone at the moment, the by-law was amended to "require the local board to discontinue the fluoridation system".
