Thought this was interesting; I think that fluoride can have the same symptoms as MSG; here's a link to the fluoride content of gelatin: http://www.rsc.org/delivery/_ArticleLinking/DisplayArticleForFree.cfm?doi=AN9618600198&JournalCode=AN
Is this what's in our pills? Wonder how much fluoride is in just one pill? I think I'm off supplements forever after reading this!

We are on an herbal protocol right now and drinking decoctions because we can't tolerate gelcaps, pills or capsules. It's a real problem what is being done to medicines and supplements.

anonymous, you have made an important connection... fluoride is an important trace mineral, however please note the emphasis on 'trace'... too much fluoride causes more problems than it solves!
in fact, fluorosis- a condition of tooth decay resulting from TOO MUCH fluoride- while once quite rare, is now dramatically on the rise!
is one website of many offering additional information on this 'emergent' health problem.
...i remember as a kid- long before fluoride supplements were even heard of- i used to swallow the toothpaste i brushed with instead of spitting it out... i never knew at the time that was actually the cause of the white spotting which developed all over my front teeth. i was lucky- my case was mild and resolved over time, after i grew out of the habit of eating toothpaste.
now of course, at the start of every new school year, all the info packets coming home contain 'permission slips' for the schools to slip your children fluoride tablets, along with the usual assertion that this is absolutely necessary for your child's good dental health.
i ALWAYS sign the waiver requesting that NO supplements be given to my children. we brush twice a day with baking soda and water followed by a couple drops of peppermint extract (suggested by DebA of this site) and have very healthy natural teeth and gums

anonymous, noting that the bottom samples from the US were made with fluoridated water, and being that most large cities add it to their water supply, this might make one wonder if most everything that is processed here contains fluoride. one more reason to cook from scratch.
