Problem with that is finding a system that can handle that volume, and then there is the drawback of waste with RO filtration. Depending on the system RO wastes a gallon for every gallon it purifies. At least. And if you are paying for your water, that can get expensive.

You don't wash or flush your toilet with RO water though. You just use it for cooking and drinking which is like a gallon a day.

Water isn't wasted. It's turned into something else and is used by the earth.

You've definitely had too much fluoride. The conversation obviously pertains to people specifically on municipal water supply. Usually those are metered, so you pay for what you use. Therefore if your RO filter gives you 1 gallon of purified water, but it costs you 2 gallons, then one gallon is "wasted".

Where does the wasted water go?

You usually install it so goes down the drain but I have mine set up so it runs to some rain barrels outside, and I use it to water my garden.
