  • 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 […]

  • 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’s Brain Damage Studies Mounting

    Studies showing fluoride can lower IQ are just the tip of the iceberg in fluoride/neurotoxicity research, according to evidence presented by attorney Michael Connett, Fluoride Action Network’s (FAN) Special Projects Director at the 5th Annual FAN Conference on September 6, 2014. Public health officials never considered brain effects before instigating fluoride’s addition to water supplies […]

  • More Studies Link Fluoride to Brain Damage

    Legislators Are Mislead About Gravity and Extent of Fluoride Brain Risk. Newly discovered and translated published studies reveal fluoride is linked to lower IQ, even at levels added to US water supplies, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Further, fluoridation promoters misrepresented newly published Harvard fluoride/IQ research. Thirty-four studies now link fluoride to reduced IQ […]

  • Fluoride & IQ: 67 Studies

    As of May 2020, a total of 75 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence. Of these investigations, 67 studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ in humans, while over 60 animal studies have found that fluoride exposure impairs the learning and/or memory capacity of animals. The […]

  • Studies show fluoridated tap water can have negative effect on health

    Most toothpaste boxes have a portion that reads drug facts on the back. Underneath that it states sodium fluoride. Elsewhere on the box it states if you swallow more than used for brushing teeth, get medical help or contact Poison Control right away. According to the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority, New Haven has […]

  • New studies reveal that drinking certain kinds of tea poses dangerous health risks

    Fortunately, there are ways to minimize them Next to water, tea is the most popular beverage in the world, which is generally a good thing: Besides being tasty and soothing—or energizing, depending on what you’re going for—a seemingly endless body of research has linked it with a huge number of mental and physical health benefits. […]

  • 64 studies have linked fluoride with reduced IQ in children.

  • Dopamine receptor D2 gene polymorphism, urine fluoride, and intelligence impairment of children in China: A school-based cross-sectional study.

    EXCERPTS … In China, endemic fluorosis is classified into drinking-water type, drinking-tea type, and coal-burning type. Humans are exposed to high fluoride mainly through drinking groundwater with high fluoride content (Barbier et al., 2010). When fluorine is absorbed, it enters the blood and distributes throughout the body, mainly in bones and teeth (Barbier et al., […]

  • FAN campaign targets pregnancy and water fluoridation

    The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) launched its “Moms2B Avoid Fluoride” campaign to alert pregnant women that consuming fluoride, especially from fluoridated water, can potentially harm the developing brain of their unborn child, according to newly published research. FAN pointed to to two “mother-child” studies in 2017 and 2018 on the cognitive effect of fluoride on […]
