"The HF pups received 2.3 ug F/g BW/day from birth until 24 days"
OK, there's 70 Kg of me or 70,000 grams, so the same dose would be 70,000 *3.2g
That's 0.161 grams or 161milligrams
And water is fuoridated to the extent of about 1 miligram per litre.
So, you are assuming I drink roughly twice my bodyweight in water very day.

"whereafter HF and LF groups received food containing 37 and 7 mg F/kg respectively and distilled water."
So that's something like 7 to 37 times more than they put in the water.

Do you understand why we are dismissing you as uninformed and/ or uneducated?

There's probably deep political reasons in supporting water fluoridation.

I really don't care.... tap water sucks anyways.

I think that Luke Ph.D thesis is accurate in finding an association between fluoride exposure and pineal gland calcification.

Funny.... that's not what I got out of this thesis:

"The purpose was to discover whether fluoride (F) accumulates in the pineal gland and thereby affects pineal physiology during early development."
"In conclusion, F inhibits pineal MT synthesis in gerbils up until the time of sexual maturation."

Not exactly "supraphysiological doses" - considering the uncontrolled dose/levels of fluoride in tap water.

rofl.... The fluoride content of tap water is regulated at 0.7 mg/L to 1.2 mg/L.

Quote
"Solutions were made up containing 50.8, 152.5, and 254.2 mg NaF in 100 ml water for use in weeks 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

From day 1 until weaning at day 24, HF pups received 10 ul of the appropriate NaF solution orally by Gilson pipette (3 times/day, 5 days/week)."

If I start seeing newborns chugging 1-gallon jugs of tap water.... I might start getting concerned.
