A shocking, newly-published study, confirming what we have known all along, was just released: 12 year, multi-million dollar study from Mexico shows conclusively that fluoride does affect the brain and a definitely is a neurotoxin. The study was published in Environmental Health Perspectives (a monthly peer-reviewed journal of research and news published with support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), and one of their articles shows child brain damage when pregnant mothers drink fluoridated water.
Here’s an excerpt:
“In this study, higher levels of maternal urinary fluoride during pregnancy (a proxy for prenatal fluoride exposure) that are in the range of levels of exposure in other general population samples of pregnant women as well as nonpregnant adults were associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at 4 and 6–12 y old.”
WARNING: Pregnant women should NOT drink fluoridated water, according to the study. It is associated with lower IQs in children.
Some important points about the Environmental Health Perspectives piece from FAN:
All of this loss of brain power of our children is justified by the government by reference to some studies that show decreased cavities in 12 year olds with water fluoridation. Other studies show no such decrease in cavities. “The magnitude of [fluoridation’s] effect is not large in absolute terms, is often not statistically significant and may not be of clinical significance.” – Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (1999).
Most of the Mexican women had urine fluoride between 0.5 and 1.5 mg/L. Studies have found that adults in the USA have between about 0.6 and 1.5 mg/L, almost exactly the same range. From the low end of that range to the high end is a difference of 1 mg/L which is what caused the 5 to 6 IQ point difference in the children of the study mothers.
Note that the study authors say “we need further study” which just accentuates the reality that fluoridation is a human experiment, an experiment with compelling evidence of damage to the developing brains of children in the womb. This is unconscionable.
Fluoride Action Network (FAN) responded to the new 12 year federally-funded study from the U.S. National Institutes of Health showing that fluoride exposure in utero is linked to lower IQ in children. Paul Connett, former Professor of Chemistry, explains in this YouTube video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?
Yes, we’re talking about fluoride — the toxic substance that’s added to the public water supply. It’s mass medication forced upon the public without regard to dosage and side effects.
But as sovereign beings, WE should have the right to decide whether to ingest this toxic substance or not, and we shouldn’t have to pay for filters to REMOVE it (if that were possible). It should NOT even be in the public drinking water in the first place!
Many other news outlets have been reporting on the recent study.
This recent Newsweek article — “CHILDREN’S IQ COULD BE LOWERED BY MOTHERS DRINKING TAP WATER WHILE PREGNANT” — shouldn’t be missed. It says:
“Adding fluoride to public drinking water for dental purposes has been controversial since the practice first began in 1945, and the latest findings are sure to stir that pot yet again. A new study suggests that prenatal exposure to this chemical may affect cognitive abilities and that children born to mothers exposed to high amounts of fluoride could have lower IQs.”
“The study, published Tuesday in Environmental Health Perspectives, found an association between lower intelligence and prenatal fluoride exposure in 299 mother-child pairs in Mexico. The team measured fluoride levels from mothers via urine samples and followed up on their children until they were between 6 and 12 years old. Even when other possible factors were taken into account, such as exposure to other chemicals, results continually showed that higher prenatal fluoride exposure was linked to lower scores on tests of cognitive function in children at age 4 and then again between 6 and 12.”
Here’s a Yahoo News article: Children’s IQ Could Be Lowered By Mothers Drinking Tap Water While Pregnant
And a Medical Daily article with the same title: Children’s IQ Could Be Lowered By Mothers Drinking Tap Water While Pregnant.
This Reader’s Digest article entitled “ If You Drink This Type of Water During Pregnancy, Your Child’s IQ Could Suffer” says:
Moms-to-be know well that pregnancy is no cake walk. Their diets adjust, their moods fluctuate, and their body puts them through an emotional and physical obstacle course of a lifetime. Throughout that time, the right habits can make for a healthier baby, but everything isn’t always as simple as taking folic acid and attending Lamaze class. According to CNN, expecting moms might have to start avoiding tap water.
In case you can’t read the small font in the image above, it says:
FACT: Fluoride is a dangerous substance and the active ingredient in most insecticides!
If ingested, as little as 1/10 an ounce of fluoride can kill a 100 lb adult and 1/100 of an ounce can kill a 10 pound infant. Studies have shown that exposure to fluoride can cause neurological damage and an increased risk of bone cancer.
FICTION: Fluoride added to the public water supply strengthens teeth and helps prevent cavities.
Do you remember the breaking news story about toxic lead in the Flint, Michigan tap water last year? Fluoride was a problem there, too. Check out this snippet from this article:
“Fluoride is not a mineral nutrient or a component of normal blood. Thus, it is recommended that drinking water fluoridation be banned. The FDA ruled in 1963 that fluoride added to water is an uncontrolled use of an unapproved drug. In 1966 the FDA banned the sale of all fluoride compounds intended to be ingested by pregnant women in the U.S.”
[Bold emphasis ours]
It’s like we’re living in the Dark Ages. Even medical doctors are still trying to alter human physiology using chemicals (drugs) rather than respecting the human body as a divinely created being and its responses, which they refer to as “diseases”, as intelligent reactions. Doctors seem to believe that taking medication can solve a symptom, but the symptom is a result of an underlying CAUSE, and the human body doesn’t do anything unintelligently. It DOES, however, respond to external stimuli in a way that will protect itself, to the best of its ability. A basic study of human anatomy and physiology shows this.
Fluoride is one of those dangerous chemicals – a drug – that has toxic, long term effects on the human body, and we’ve known this for years. Ingesting fluoride through drinking water passes by the teeth quickly and heads straight for internal organs, including the liver, intestine, kidneys, and brain!
Mandating water fluoridation is like poisoning our waterhole! Many communities around the state of Arkansas have voted fluoridation down more than once. Remember the last 2017 legislative session regarding the bill on local control on water fluoridation? The Senate City, County, and Local Affairs committee of 8 decided we could NOT have local control regarding water fluoridation! Arkansans needs to really hammer local control with their state legislators, but what we need is the fluoridation mandate repealed! The state of Missouri allows local control of fluoridation.
Note: For those of you who have contacted Secure Arkansas recently wanting more information on the harmful effects of fluoridation, please be sure to watch this factual video from Dr. Phyllis Mullenix speaking at the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) in Las Vegas.
Drinking water should not be fluoridated, much less mandated! Why should we be forced to have this poison in our tap water? Fluoride is NOT a benign substance. Fluoride IS a neurotoxin!
According to Bill Osmunson, DDS, MPH, director of the Fluoride Action Network, “The dental lobby is confirming what we have suspected for some time, they are more interested in protecting the outdated program of water fluoridation, than in protecting the brains of future generations. Supporters of fluoridation have not refuted the key finding of this study that fluoride harms the developing brain.”
“Children are the primary victims of our failed fluoridation policy, and mothers are our last line of defense.” advises Osmunson. “To protect your baby’s brain, we recommend mothers avoid drinking fluoridated water, swallowing fluoride supplements or toothpaste, and avoid fluoride dental treatments during and before pregnancy.”
He is correct. We should ALL be avoiding fluoride and fluoridated water.
However, as you can imagine, after the new, informative study from Mexico (mentioned in the first paragraph of our article) was published, toxic fluoride advocates, including the American Dental Association, got very busy scrambling to cover their false statements on the safety of fluoridation. Sadly, they have erroneously promoted water fluoridation and painted themselves into a box! So, now they will have to discredit ANY truthful study that comes out regarding the harmful effects of fluoridation in order to keep their distorted lies going. They need to stop promoting the malevolent policy to fluoridate and quit misleading the public. Here’s their article in which they are deceptively denying the credibility of this revealing new study. We’ve included some snippets from it so you can read for yourselves:
September 19, 2017
Contact Information: [email protected]
CHICAGO, September 19, 2017 – The American Dental Association (ADA) examined a study in Environmental Health Perspectives based on fluoride intake in Mexico and concludes the findings are not applicable to the U.S.
The authors of the study suggest that prenatal exposure to fluoride may cause lower IQ in children. However, because it is unknown how the subjects of the study ingested the fluoride – whether through salt, water, or both – no conclusions can be drawn regarding the effects of community water fluoridation in the U.S. Moreover, according to the ADA, the best available scientific evidence shows no association between the U.S.-recommended amount of fluoride used to prevent tooth decay and IQ.
Fluoridation has been named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of 10 great health achievements of the 20th century, and more than 100 U.S. and international health organizations including the World Health Organization recognize the public health benefits of community water fluoridation for preventing dental decay.
Of course they are going to discredit the study! They have no choice but to stick to their disconcerting statements. Of course they are still proclaiming fluoride is safe and effective! Remember, the cover-up on the dangers of fluoridation has to be kept in place! Otherwise, can you see that class action lawsuits would be brought forth, just like for any other dangerous drug that carries harmful side effects?!
The American Dental Association claims that fluoridation “has been named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of 10 great health achievements of the 20th century”, but statements about the safety were also made about DDT and asbestos! This protection racket must be exposed! One of the CDC’s organizational partners is the World Health Organization! The relationship is incestuous! Big money and corporations pose a threat to the global population because there’s a huge conflict of interest!
Attention: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) receives heavy funding from industry through the CDC Foundation! This supposedly governmental agency — the CDC — is listed in Dunn & Bradstreet as a FOR-profit corporation. It’s also been exposed as a private corporation colluding with Big Pharma! CDC has a direct conflict of interest due to its connection to the CDC Foundation.
When confronted about the discrepancy between the CDC’s public disclaimer and the reality that corporate funding is flowing into the organization, Tom Frieden, director of the CDC, responded, saying:
“Public-private partnerships allow CDC to do more, faster. The agency’s core values of accountability, respect, and integrity guide the way CDC spends the funds entrusted to it. When possible conflicts of interests arise, we take a hard, close look to ensure that proper policies and guidelines are followed before accepting outside donations.”
In other words, the CDC believes and “assures” you that it has the moral backbone to do the right thing, despite the fact that studies have revealed that moral fiber tends to significantly deteriorate as soon as a funding source with an agenda starts doling out money!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CANNOT be trusted.
1973 (only a partial ban)
toxic fluoride poison is still protected by CDC, EPA, & FDA
In the above table — at the time each substance was introduced — the public was told that each one was safe. It wasn’t until decades later that the substances were banned by the government for health reasons.
How long is it going to take and how many deaths will occur before CDC and the Health Departments wake up and ban fluoride?
Seems to us that the CDC, EPA, and FDA have NO concern for people’s health! They refuse to allow science to guide them. A great many of our doctors/scientists have been fired, suppressed, or terribly underfunded while trying to expose the atrocities perpetrated on mankind.
Who really runs this country? The global elite from their corporations and foundations, that’s who. They are making laws and setting injurious policy guidelines, like states mandating the addition of toxic fluoride into their drinking water. The propaganda and brainwashing are staggering. The organizations that partner with the CDC Foundation often do it to advance their corporate agenda and to help CDC to move faster… Therefore, a lot of money is fed into the CDC to promote the corporate agenda.
The misleading advertisement shown below from this pro-toxic-fluoride article is a prime example of the brainwashing that’s continually been perpetrated on the public! (Remember, Secure Arkansas does NOT promote fluoridation or ingesting fluoride!)
Here’s an example of their body-harming tips:
These “Dental Tips” about purposefully ingesting fluoride are ridiculous!
Hopefully you don’t use fluoridated toothpaste, but if you do — take a look at the warning label on the back of it. It very clearly states: “If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control center right away”! Does that mean fluoride is “safe and effective”? Absolutely not! And for children under 6 years of age, a pea-sized amount is recommended. Do your children use that small of an amount of toothpaste? Most people squeeze it on until it nearly falls off the toothbrush!
The day after the findings from the informative Mexico study were released, an article was written by Amber Auger, a public hygienist who is a key leader for several dental companies, rebutting the information CNN released on September 19, 2017 about the new educational study and showing how worried they are with the facts. Fluoride propagandists have been spouting disingenuous statements for years, and it also shows they are preparing with their same old line of misinformation about fluoride being “safe and effective” for everyone.
Here are some brief snippets on how so-called dental professionals plan to address the CNN article, ‘Fluoride exposure in utero linked to lower IQ in kids’:
“On September 19, CNN released an article http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/19/
health/fluoride-iq-neurotoxin- study/index.html stating the fluoride exposure in utero is linked to lower IQ in children. I urge you to be ready to answer questions regarding fluoride. My fear is patients will read the article title and take the limited study out of context. Let’s review the study and equip you with the facts to be better prepared.
The initial study is aimed to “estimate the association of prenatal exposure to fluoride with offspring neurocognitive development.”(1) The researchers report that additional studies are needed to confirm the link. Most consumers will see the title of the CNN article and assume all sources of fluoride are dangerous. We understand the benefits of fluoride in correct amounts. It is our role to educate on the importance of the therapeutic benefits of fluoride.
As dental professionals, it is important to remember that multiple factors contribute to tooth decay. Therefore, if the patient decides not to accept the fluoride recommendations, we can reinforce the importance of biofilm disruption, provide products that will help balance the pH of the mouth, and recommend diet changes to reduce the patients’ risk of tooth decay.
Amber Auger is a key opinion leader for several dental companies, speaker and published author”
Keep in mind that, if Ms. Auger is a “key opinion leader for several dental companies”, this could show a conflict of interest — as it appears that she’s promoting harmful fluoridation propaganda!
The remainder of our article includes links to reputable resources about fluoride toxicity and the health problems and neurological damage caused by ingesting it.
From the Harvard School of Public Health, July 25, 2012 — Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children:
“For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain.”
“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean says. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”
Here’s an article from 2014: Toxic chemicals linked to brain disorders in children — A Harvard study finds six newly recognized chemicals to add to list including fluoride.
A 2014 report from The Lancet, the world’s oldest and arguably one of its most prestigious medical journals, officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin — in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury. Also in the report, they note that neurodevelopmental disabilities, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, are now affecting millions of children worldwide in what they call a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”
Here’s another scholarly journal article from 2012 entitled “Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis” by Environmental Health Perspectives, published on the National Institutes of Health’s U.S National Library of Medicine’s website.
This published article summarizes a 5-year study funded with about $2,000,000 by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (Director: Linda Birnbaum).
Here are some snippets from the study:
“This effort addresses a 2007 US National Research Council report which concluded that more research is needed to address the possibility that population-wide levels of fluoride exposure may pose a significant threat to neurobehavior.”
“This research will directly address the issue as to whether population-wide levels of prenatal and/or childhood fluoride exposure is a significant risk factor for some forms of adverse neurobehavioral performance. Given the widespread nature of fluoride use and exposure and the lack of rigorous epidemiologic research on this topic of the current base of evidence, this research promises to make a major contribution to fluoride risk assessment and policy decision-making.”
“Further, our pilot data shows evidence of an inverse relationship between prenatal biomarkers of fluoride exposure and general cognitive function at 2 years (Bayley Scales of Mental Development), 4 years (McCarthy Scales of Children’s Abilities) and 7-14 years (Wechsler Abbreviated Scales of Intelligence).
In closing, once again, we are warning the public: fluoridation is NOT safe, and it is NOT effective! Remember, if you are being told to drink lots of water with fluoride in it, BEWARE! Use caution when consuming this drug because you can be overdosed. Ingesting fluoride puts you and your children at risk.
Once again, Arkansas’ Act 197 is the drugging of Arkansans with unregulated doses of fluoride without informed consent. We believe this violates our bodies and is considered torture and is cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment. This is all on the pretense of preventing tooth decay in poor children, who the CDC admits are disproportionately harmed by water fluoridation.
We must demand safe clean drinking water for our families from our state legislatures!
