I've been wondering if theres any correlation between the incidence of Myco, tumors etc. and Flouride in the drinking water. I had been filtering drinking water but learned Flouride stays in unless you Distill it. I found a water distiller for $99 and am going to start using it for the Rats and mine drinking water.
I know alot of cities use Flouride and its debated if it causes problems in Humans,with many people believing it caused their health problems. if its thought to cause problems in people, it would cause 10X the same in Rats with their higher metabolism.
Have you lost alot of Rats to Tumors, etc. and live in a city with Flouridated water? I'd be interested in hearing about this subject.

I have well water, because I live in the middle of nowhere...lol and we've had it tested and it's really good water. But when I'm at school I'm going to be using the science department's distiller to get water for my rats, or give them bottled water (high quality) I ony drink bottled, and high quality bottled at that, but that's just me :)
