    1. fluoride's apparent role in triggering early-onset brain diseases such as Alzheimer's

      Vague wording again! (Also, "apparent" role; they're not even sure.)

    2. One major area of research

      Vague wording "major area of research"

    3. One study shows that adding fluoride to water in the presence of even small amounts of aluminum

      "One study" = vague (Without knowing details of study, this information has little merit/validity.) Also "small amount"; why not give a real amount?

    4. fluoride greatly increases the overall toxic burden of this pervasive metal, rendering it exceptionally more toxic.

      Vague wording that indicates many medical issues, but doesn't actually describe them or give information to combat issue.

    5. What apparently happens when individuals with aluminum-induced neural degeneration are exposed to fluoride

      Again, "apparently"; the author appears unfamiliar/unsure about the exact effect.

    6. Studies

      VAGUE!!!

    7. major implications

      GIVE US THE IMPLICATIONS THEN!!

    8. "The presence of fluoride enhanced the bio-availability of aluminum (Al) causing more aluminum to cross the blood-brain barrier and become deposited in the brain. The aluminum level in the brains of the fluoride-treated group was double that of the controls."

      Above statements a summary/synthesis of this point, quoted from a study; demonstrates tactic of fake news in writing stories.

    9. especially when that fluoride interacts with other toxic chemicals commonly found in municipal water supplies.

      Not referencing or identifying toxic chemicals; also not discussing quantity in reference to toxicity.

    10. The World Health Organization (WHO) explains in a report on aluminum that aluminum salts used as coagulants at many water treatment facilities can lead to increased concentrations of aluminum in finished water, which is worsened by the addition of fluoride chemicals.

      I'm unable to find a position of the WHO at this time; link at the bottom of the page doesn't lead anywhere. (Could be another tactic, using a reputable site and putting words in their mouth.)

    11. http://www.who.int

      No link to actually follow.

    12. trace amounts of aluminum

      No real amount given for aluminum (PPM?)
