Harvard University conducted a study that confirmed a previous study done by the U.S. National Research Council regarding fluoride’s negative effects on the brain. The study indicated that children who live in areas where they receive high amounts of fluoride in their water have significantly lower IQ’s than those living in areas with lower fluoride amounts in the water. The study found that fluoride created neurotoxicity in animals and effected learning and memory abilities. In addition, the study reviewed and analyzed over twenty-seven studies done in twenty-two years showing that fluoridated water created neurological and developmental delays in the rural areas of China that were studied. Rats that were exposed showed numerous brain alterations including increased aluminum, such as that seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
- Reduced IQ and brain damage can be linked to fluoride.
- Flouride is an accumulative toxin and can lead to damage over time.
- Water fluoridation has been linked to an increase in cancer rates.
“There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now.”
