Flouride protection
Kentucky law states that communities with a population of 1,500 or more must have their public water systems fluoridated.  Therefore, 99.6 percent of public water systems are fluoridated in Kentucky.
Public health officials have recommended that fluoridated tap water not be used to create infant formula. This can cause a toxic overdose of fluoride in infants, causing fluoride poisoning.  This can lead to tooth discoloration, neurological harm and other long-term problems.
This is common knowledge, but I feel that the word needs to spread more for the safety of small children.
