They're quite easy to keep, kinda like hamsters. You just have to make sure that it stays warm and feed it insects.
Also their cages have to be on one level, because those things are clumsy as **** and tend to break their legs..

But yeah, hedgehogs are awesome.

Go get one.
Seriously, I wanted a Bearded Dragon, then one day I just went to the pet store and got one. Really not a hard dream to accomplish, very satisfying.

"moms against fluoride"

You literally need fluoride ions in your diet, to have healthy bones and teeth.
It's a nutritional requirement.

What next, "moms against protein"?

So tell me why do you not swallow toothpaste? When you get fluoride treatments on your teeth the dentist will not let you just swallow it?
It should not be put in drinking water, it is hard to control how much you are getting through your tap, especially if it's already in your diet.

So just because it's something you need, doesn't mean you should drink the stuff in a difficult way to measure.

That's not relevant in any way, and because that would be disgusting, and yes it would be too much fluoride.

However, there have been a few hundred cases (ever) of children ingesting whole tubes of flavoured toothpaste.
Do you know what they got? A slight tummy ache.

If you can provide me with one instance of somebody becoming sick due to added fluoride in the water, I'll be very impressed.

Just because added fluoride isn't the sole cause the point is the positive effects are negligible compared to the consequences. You can get all the fluoride you need though a regular healthy diet, the perceived benefits of fluoridated water is negligible compared to the risks.

No they're not.
The positive effects on health are immense.
There are no risks.

like I said, one instance of someone suffering from fluoride toxicity due to tap water.
one

SUMMARY: The death of a 41-year-old male and the illness of approximately 296 others on May 21-23, 1992, in Hooper Bay Alaska has been shown to be due to acute fluoride intoxication caused by malfunction of the fluoridation equipment of system 1 of the village’s two-system (well) water supply. Fluoride levels were reported to be as high as 150 ppm.

Sorry I was at work today, but my basic premise is, you can meet your dietary needs without going to such lengths as fluoridating the water. Having a correct dose of fluoride positive effects are there, but the positive effects of fluoridated water is negligible.

*shrug*
fair enough. I stand corrected.
citation might be nice next time, I had to look it up and prove it myself. Oh and, never from a site created/run by these kinds of petitioners, I found a legal history site which summarised the court case after the incident.

I still disagree, though.
Much more often, things like microwave ovens or kettles glitch out, and people die from house fires.
Does this mean that no-one should be allowed cooking appliances?
"Moms against electricity" eh? It makes so much more sense than fluoride, when you look at the statistics available, but who'd willingly give up electricity?

Accidents happen. You can't take away something so extremely beneficial to society in general just because occasionally something goes wrong.
It's totally babying.
There isn't anything which comes without risks, and the risks of fluoridation are so insanely low.
You say "it's difficult to control", yet you can show me only one single isolated incident, so much so that it has a name. Accidents that happen in cars, are not so interesting, because obviously a car is harder to control than water fluoridation, so there are just that many traffic collisions that they become nothing but numbers.

And seriously, dude, what are you talking about?
The only dietary source for fluoride is water. You do not get fluoride from food, unless it has been prepared in fluoridated water. Very few areas of the world, and I mean very few, have high enough naturally occurring fluoride salt levels to meet the best human requirements.

But, didn't you hear, fluorine is a CHEMICAL?
lol
User avatar #22 to #13 - gigamuffin (07/22/2014) [-]
There is a dangerous chemical called Deoxyribonucleic Acid. It has been found in cancer cells, the brains of serial killers, and in rabid mountain lions. Please tell your congressman to ban Deoxyribonucleic Acid.
