I do remember very well the discussion of whether to fluoride-_adjust_
our drinking water here in Denmark or whether not to, being a
dentist-student at the time. The wantet level was 1 ppm. That level was
supposed to be safe and to cause no dental fluorosis. Our professor in
cariology had written theee book on the subject and later became a
director at WHO. The plan was rejected because of severe opposition and
later it was proved  that even
0.5 ppm could cause severe dental fluorosis. This finding was as far as
I know never published and remains to day unknown to most people.
Fluoride is a enzymatic
toxid, blocks some enzymatic processes. As far as i remember especially
processes needing Fe to be able to "run".
And I do _not_ think i dissapears/evapourates from water standing for
some time - as some wrote in this digest.
