I'm almost certain _some_ of flouride is removed in filtering just because
it's reactive. (I live in an area where the water is not flouridated

Regarding bottled water, if it hasn't been flouridated to begin with -- as
is the case with almost all spring water, which is the most popular kind of
bottled water -- you would not have to worry.
