In brief: Fluoride in t'paste

Between 1000 and 1500 parts per million.
Perfectly safe when used as directed. Chlorine is placed into drinking water to prevent typhoid, dysentery, and cholera. It's placed into swimming pools to prevent bacterial diseases. In therapeutic amounts it's helpful, in excess it's harmful but you haven't stopped drinking, cooking, and washing with tap water, have you. USE AS DIRECTED for help, not harm
