  1. no, Brita type filters don't remove any fluoride, fluoride and other pharmaceuticals are too small. there are pitcher type filters like AquaGear that do ($70, I have one and love it).

  2. yes, if it is a reverse osmosis system. more effective than 1, wastes water though.

  3. I don't have a problem with toothpaste. it's topical medicine for topical concerns. however, too much fluoride has become a bigger issue than not enough. especially for kids. check out "dental fluorosis"

  4. homemade toothpaste recipies exist. it's baking soda and a few other things .

  5. you will absorb a significant amount of water and any toxins it has when you shower/bath.
