Im pritty sure floride in an aquious form isn't toxic, I believe its the gas you gotta worry about like because its highly corrosive
That being said I think there's a culture of ignorance that exists here that has led to the rise of interest groups,and idiots who think vaccines cause autism, but the ignorant person isn't going to go educate himself even though the relevant articles are 2 clicks away
The way USA thinks of itself will in the end kill it. "They" think they can help anyone and many other nations finds it stupid and calls them assholes. The presidential campaign is also ridiculous. They use a bunch of money to get the job, not by doing what they stand for.
There are over 20 countries in the Americas. Which one?

In the medium term (30-40 years), the country will probably have afford a standard of living to the average resident somewhere between the Philippines and the damn Congo. In the meantime, things will atrophy, and along the way, there will be a debt crisis about on par with Argentina's that will trigger a dollar sell-off...after that comes petrol shortages and currency controls.
In the very near future, it is very likely that a charismatic windbag with a military background and a very pronounced evangelical authoritarian, almost semi-theocratic bent will be in the White House and his antics will likely contribute to the downfall. I think this because the institutions that the American man on the street trust the most are the military and the church.
I have taken measures to protect myself because I will not go down with this ship. Rather, I intend to take the cash register and be the first to the lifeboats.
I am in the process of getting a second passport from Paraguay; it has very liberal naturalisation laws. I have stored gold in Singapore (10oz isn't much); I highly recommend DBS and having the box fee debited from a Sing acc't directly. Gold stored overseas does not have to be declared to the IRS, nor do accounts so long as they total less than $10k. Finally, while everyone is concerned about food, most people neglect the importance of having a supply of water: I keep 8 8gal jugs and cycle through them four at a time so at any given time, I have at least 32 gallons, or about a month's supply of well water for drinking.
In passing, this is my first post; hello everyone.
Small concentrations won't do anything, but "anything" also includes not helping your teeth at all. There are some statistics about increased dental fluorosis, but I'd chalk that up to people following the stupid overbrushing advice of dentists.
