This article needs a History section[edit]

I believe that a factual reference of the historical usage of this chemical, starting with its initial creation, is pertinent and should be included.

I just made 1M NaF in lab at room temp- the solubility must be wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:18, 2 December 2011 (UTC) I am very curious as to why this talk page has no discussion of the 'conspiracies' associated with this chemical. Such theories have existed since WWII...and indeed, it is seen as one of the archetypal 'Conspiracy Theories' - even being one of the minor plot points of 'Dr.Strangelove.' There should be years worth of discussion here - even if only to prove them incorrect.

AnonJew, you just answered your own question. Yes there should be years of discussion and there probably is on the servers. It's just not visible on here out in public. Is that too far-fetched for you? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:32, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia doesn't have historical sections on many routine compounds such as this salt, but if you find a good source (e.g., WP:SECONDARY, then add it). Conspiracy theories by definition exist because they are propagated in the absence of reliable sources and, in the case of fluoride, by those unable to articulate technical information. Sort of a cyclic thing - losers talking about rumors. --Smokefoot (talk) 12:11, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
