NO (Naturally occurring fluoride present)

>>>List of locations in British Columbia where there is a risk of excess fluoride from well water.

NOTE: Naturally occurring fluoride, while still dangerous, is different from the articially created toxic waste by-product created by the phosphorus industry that is added to public water supplies. 3.1% of all communities in Canada have naturally-occurring fluoride above the levels of 1.5 mg/L recommended by Health Canada.
