Also most of the flouride in the water supply would be unnaturally occurring either via pollution, pesticide or as an intentional additive. The rates in which it is naturally occurring are far lower than what you would be exposed to via toothpaste. The sad part of this is that pollution is so pervasive that I doubt you could really get readings from an uncontaminated source.

I recommend the ACT mouthwashes. The other fluoride washes are good too, but each have a weird formulation that leaves a bad after taste. ESPECIALLY the crest pro-health stuff. Don't know what they were thinking. ACT is highly recommended in general. Good tastes, very well designed bottle...

BTw - didn't see fluoride listed as an ingredients in this mouthwash. Is there a comparable alternative here?

Pretty much everything is a carcinogen in large enough quantities. The issue here is daily exposure to the alcohol increasing your risks. No, you're not going to die tomorrow, but if it's a risk factor you can eliminate, why not.
"alcohol in mouthwashes "increases the permeability of the mucosa" to carcinogens like nicotine.
He added that a toxic breakdown product of alcohol called acetaldehyde that may accumulate in the oral cavity when swished around the mouth is also a carcinogen.
Prof McCullough said: "We see people with oral cancer who have no other risk factors than the use of alcohol-containing mouthwash, so what we've done in this study is review all the evidence that's out there."

Your sources are articles that dramatize poorly done studies. The studies themselves are also not really from notable sources. The one somewhat notable study from Harvard compares HIGH and LOW concentrations of fluoride exposure. They're considering the LOW concentration as no concentration. This level is equivalent to or above the concentrations in drinking water and total exposure to any child/person under the guidance/care of general public health management and/or a Dentist. Not to mention that there are too many confounds to count when blatantly comparing two groups like that. To me, that paper screams 'research done for the sale of research and learning how to do research.'
Hype is hype. Many "reporters" or "journalists" are just fiction writers that source inspiration from facts to make interesting stories in an attempt to draw people in. Otherwise called "spin doctors."
There will always be opposition but the overwhelming evidence shows that fluoride is safe and enormously beneficial in controlled concentrations. The rate of dental disease has dropped dramatically since water fluoridation started. In addition, even if the fluoride levels were too high, an adult would probably die of fluoride poisoning before they're neurons are influenced.
Should you choose to be non-fluoride, don't drink the tap water and you should probably read about where your bottled water comes from since many springs are naturally fluoridated. Also stay away from most teas and you really should have a good preventative hygiene regimen planned out.

I've never heard that alcohol has carcinogens.
