Flouride supplementation in water is a controversial topic. Those opposed to flouridated water argue that because flouride is a carcinogen and a mutagen it is unsafe to drink. Flouride in drinking water also can lead to dental flourosis - a condition that destroys the teeth.
If you are concerned about flouride in the water supply, purchase a flouride drinking water filter. These filters come in a variety of models including those that attach to your faucet and others that connect to the pipes under your sink. Most drinking water filters are carbon water filters that don't effectively remove flouride so be sure that your drinking water filter is specifically designed to remove flouride.
