    And if you thought Fluoride was safe:


    "it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain."
    SOURCE: National Research Council. (2006). Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA's Standards. National Academies Press, Washington D.C. p 187.

    "Studies in animals and human populations suggest that fluoride exposure, at levels that are experienced by a significant proportion of the population whose drinking water is fluoridated, may have adverse impacts on the developing brain. Though no final conclusions may be reached from available data, the findings are provocative and of significant public health concern."

    "Based on the findings of this study, exposure of children to high levels of fluoride may carry the risk of impaired development of intelligence."

    “We found that exposure to fluoride (F) in urine was associated with reduced Performance, Verbal, and Full IQ scores before and after adjusting for confounders. The same pattern was observed for models with F in water as the exposure variable.... The individual effect of F in urine indicated that for each mg increase of F in urine a decrease of 1.7 points in Full IQ might be expected.”

    "In agreement with other studies elsewhere, these findings indicate that children drinking high F water are at risk for impaired development of intelligence."

    "A few epidemiologic studies of Chinese populations have reported IQ deficits in children exposed to fluoride at 2.5 to 4 mg/L in drinking water. Although the studies lacked sufficient detail for the committee to fully assess their quality and relevance to U.S. populations, the consistency of the results appears significant enough to warrant additional research on the effects of fluoride on intelligence."

  2. Hysteria...
     
  3. You keep drinking that Fluoridated water.

    As for drugs, long-term research is scant (10+ years out).

    Scientists aren't sure how these drugs - even in minute amounts - affect the body after prolonged exposure.

    Fluoride accumulates in the body over time.
     
  4. Hysteria...
     
  5. Those are the facts.

    Ignore them at your peril.
