The effects of adding fluoride to drinking water for human health are improved teeth structure, reduced risk of tooth decay and cavities.

The negative effects of drinking fluoridated drinking water are seizures, acne, high blood pressure, skeletal weakness, tooth decay and tooth discoloration.

Fluoridated water can be harmful to humans used as drinking water in high levels as high levels of fluoride in drinking water can be toxic to brains and nerves.

Fluoride is put in public drinking water to keep teeth strong and solid as fluoride helps stop cavities from forming and rebuilds the tooth surface.

However excess amounts of fluoride ions in drinking water can cause dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis, arthritis, bone damage, osteoporosis, muscular damage, fatigue, joint-related problems, and chronicle issues.

City water tastes so bad because of the addition of chemicals such as chloride, fluoride and chlorine that is added to the water.

The city is required by law to add chlorine, fluoride and other disinfecting chemicals to the water to make the city water supply safe to drink.

While the EPA and health department does say that the chlorinated water is safe to drink, I would have to disagree as chlorine in water is not mean to be there and overtime drinking chlorinated water can lead to bladder cancer, nervous system disorders, kidney failure or other health issues.

I have well water and would never drink chlorinated water again.

When I make tea or coffee with my well water it tastes so much better than coffee or tea made with city water.

Well water contains minerals and nutrients that are essential for health as well and as long as your well is sealed and your well is not near pollutants the well water is safe to drink.

The ground naturally filters out bacteria and contaminants in the water making it safe to drink.

Well water is better for you than city water as well water contains no added chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride or other harsh water treatment chemicals.

The water from water wells goes through a natural purifying process without the addition of harmful chemicals that can harm your health.

Many people have no choice but to use city water but if you have the option or already have a water well then well water is the best water you can drink.

It OK to drink well water as long as the well water has no bacteria that is bad in it.

If your well is properly drilled and constructed and sealed then the well water should be very safe to drink straight from the well.

In fact well water is healthier for you and safer for you to drink than city water is as city water contains added chemicals including chlorine to disinfect the water which can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, liver failure and even cancer.

The city water also contains fluoride which is healthy in small amounts but can be harmful if ingested in large quantities.

Well water comes straight from the ground without those added chemicals that are not meant to be ingested.

Well water also contains other minerals and nutrients including iron which our bodies need to stay healthy.

People drinking well water have a lower risk of heart disease, liver disease, kidney failure or kidney disease and other health issues than people drinking city water with added chemicals.

I have well water at my house and would never drink city water or hook onto city water.

My well water tastes much better than city water and is healthier and contains no added chemicals and I pay no water bill either.

The submersible well pump in my well uses electricity but it adds only around $5.00 to $10.00 per month at most to the bill.

City water is also sometimes reclaimed and treated sewage water that gets put back into lakes and streams and is then consumed again before being filtered naturally.

Well water comes out of the aquifers after being purified naturally through the earth.

Some cities also have water wells that they pump the water from and into the water towers and then they add the chemicals to the water.

So in some cities you're drinking treated well water and are being charged for water that you can get out of the ground without needing to pay a water bill.
