dental fluorosis

I have very personal reasons for hating fluoridation because I poisoned my son when he was an infant by giving him a daily prescribed dose of fluoride drops. I was being a good mom, protecting his teeth, or so I thought, because our water was not fluoridated. He had classic symptoms of fluoride poisoning for nearly three years, starting at about 3 weeks, but no one even considered it. Not our family doctor, not his pediatrician, and not our dentist. Idiots all! Instead they called it colic and gave him more medication, and tested him for things like congenital megacolon.
