Is an additive found in toothpastes and about two-thirds of America's drinking water, supposedly good for teeth and bones. It may be listed on ingredient labels as sodium fluoride or sodium monofluorophosphate. Eighty years ago, fluoride was used as rat poison and was also popular as an insecticide for a while until it was found to kill or injure plants.

Fluoride is poisonous when ingested in large enough amounts, but if that's not enough to convince you, it is also linked with developmental issues like lower IQ levels. Constant low-dose fluoride exposure in both toothpaste and drinking water most commonly results in fluorosis, which causes yellowed and mottled teeth. It also bioaccumulates in plants and animals.

Who's at risk?- Everyone, but especially children. Double-dosing fluoride with water and toothpaste is particularly risky for children due to their low body weights and tendency to swallow more toothpaste because it's sweet. Chronic overexposure can also cause mouth sores, rashes, bone cancer, and crippling skeletal problems.
