The report by the National Academy of Sciences found that people exposed to the maximum level of fluoride allowed in tap […]

  • Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ

    Harvard University researchers’ review of fluoride/brain studies concludes “our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.” It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF) “The children in high […]

  • Fluoride Lowers IQ in Kids, New Study Shows

    A review of some two dozen studies by Harvard University researchers published this month in a peer-reviewed federal journal suggests that fluoride added into water supplies “significantly” decreases the IQ of children, leading to renewed calls by activists to end the controversial practice of fluoridation. Most public water supplies in the United States still have […]

  • Harvard scientists: Data on fluoride, IQ not applicable in U.S.

    Harvard University scientists say that Wichita voters shouldn’t depend on a research study they compiled to decide whether to put fluoride in the city’s drinking water to fight tooth decay. While the studies the Harvard team reviewed did indicate that very high levels of fluoride could be linked to lower IQs among schoolchildren, the data […]

  • The effect of small quantities of fluorine on the human body

    Based on several studies, national standard GOST 2874-54 established the maximum allowable concentration of fluorine in drinking water to be 1.5 mg/l. However, this standard cannot be considered sufficiently substantiated. Despite the fact that fluorine exhibits strong neurotropic activity, the question pertaining to the functional state of the nervous system as a result of the […]

  • Water Fluoridation Affects Children’s IQ

    Why, in 1974, didn’t authorities learn from this terrible tragedy? A 3-year-old Brooklyn boy, during his first dental checkup, had fluoride paste applied to his teeth.

  • Harvard Scientist Criticizes Wichita Paper’s Whitewash of Fluoride/IQ Study

    A poorly fact-checked article from a Kansas newspaper is being cited by well-funded advocacy organizations across the country to convince decision-makers, physicians and the public to disregard a peer-reviewed Harvard research paper linking fluoride to lower IQ in children, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Harvard scientist, Philippe Grandjean, MD, states the newspaper never “checked […]
