But 'Too much' is usually when they eat the stuff regularly. Not what they're liable to be exposed to in the normal course of brushing their teeth.
As for thyroid problems, again, the amount you're likely to be exposed to in the normal course of brushing your teeth - or even if you're in an area with fluoridated water - is too low to be of any concern.
The British Thyroid Association produced a release to reassure sufferers a few years ago.http://www.british-thyroid-association.org/Guidelines/Docs/B_F_S.pdf

I think you are grossly misleading people here.
If the British Thyroid Association released this then why is it headed
BRITISH FLUORIDATION SOCIETY STATEMENT
Also, we are talking about flouride in toothpaste, but the release only deals with flouride added to water.
According to the release, flouride added to water is only 1ppm, but flouride added to toothpaste is around 1450ppm. Bit of a difference there!

I read this with interest, having an overactive thyroid, myself. You're right, it does relate to flouride in water, which as you say isn't what we're discussing, however, it is on the British Thyroid Association website, so am assuming they endorse it.
