Strong Bones

This is something I touch on in my nutrition and supplement information evenings because it is so strongly related to that topic.

I have been thinking about this topic for a while. Forever Living has a non-fluoride toothpaste which we love (https://www.foreverliving.com/retail/entry/Shop.do?store=GBR&language=en&distribID=440500072227&itemCode=028), but I was wondering what and how much fluoride we need and if it’s a good idea to use it!
