sodium, sugar, iron, vitamins A,D,E, and K are all harmful in large doses.

water itself is harmful in large doses.

If it is harmful in large doses then why is it added to many sources of tap water?

according to the national heath service in UK it isnt. They have some studies in the link.

I also went to the colgate site (which could be bias, but again see above) they said fluoride is only toxic after large doses. Swallowing some each time you brush does not even do that.

are you American? I've heard that American toothpaste is really weird, it has soooo much fluroride in? which is why your teeth are weirdly white? we have fluroride in our toothpaste but not that much haha

oxygen is incredibly toxic, and any living thing that uses it has to constantly produce antioxidants or die.

many toxic things are good in small does.
and all things are toxic in large enough doses. even water.

almost every substance is toxic after a certain quantity.

Carbon dioxide is toxic, but a certain amount is necessary, or you die.

Thank You! Finally an argument and people who understand where I am coming from, I am fluoride free.

it strengthens enamel, a substance that does not grow back naturally.

I think one of the purposes is to lower the power of the penal gland
