Home water filtration systems, like those based on carbon filters (e.g. Brita 
water filters) or ones using 'reverse' osmosis, tout their ability to remove 
over 99% of the impurities from water.  Flouride added to the water we drink by 
the public water utilities has been proven to improve the dental health of 
communities.  Do these filters remove the flouride in addition to the less 
beneficial impurities?
