No. The manufacturer's web site at http://www.Purwater.Com/pur-products/learn-more/pitcher-water-filter-replacement.Html claims that "...It still leaves behind beneficial fluoride".
NO. Fluoride is very difficult to remove from water. Reverse osmosis, distillation or activated alumina filters are required- see http://chemistry.About.Com/od/chemistryhowtoguide/a/removefluoride.Htm this is unfortunate, as Fluoride is more toxic than lead & is unwisely added to over 70% of water supplies in the us.
