Fluoride & the Brain
The most recent Chinese study on fluoride & the brain was posted on PubMed just last week. The study looked at the effect of fluoride on the hippocampal region of rat brain, and concluded that: “Fluoride may go through the blood-brain barrier and accumulate in rat hippocampus, and inhibit the activity of cholinesterase.”
Summary of 2011 Fluoride Research
Evidence of fluoride’s detrimental effects on the brain and central nervous system continues to mount. At least four more studies finding a link between fluoride exposure and decreased intelligence (IQ) of children were published this year, putting the total number of such studies at 25.
Fluoride & the Brain: An Interview with Dr. Phyllis Mullenix
The following interview with Phyllis Mullenix took place on October 18, 1997. The interviewer is Paul Connett. I. ACADEMIC BACKGROUND Connett: We’re talking with Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, who in 1995, published a very important work on the neurotoxic effects of fluoride in rat studies. And Phyllis would you begin by telling us your background? What are […]
Rat Studies Link Brain Cell Damage With Aluminum and Fluoride in Water
The Wall Street Journal October 28, 1992 Rat Studies Link Brain Cell Damage With Aluminum and Fluoride in Water by Marilyn Chase Staff Reporter ANAHEIM, Calif. – A team of New York scientists said rat studies offer preliminary evidence that aluminum, when administered in drinking water, may be linked with behavior changes and damaged brain […]
Fluoride’s Direct Effects on Brain: Animal Studies
The possibility that fluoride ingestion may impair intelligence and other indices of neurological function is supported by a vast body of animal research, including over 40 studies that have investigated fluoride’s effects on brain quality in animals. As discussed by the National Research Council, the studies have consistently demonstrated that fluoride, at widely varying concentrations, is toxic to the brain.
Fluoride Affects Learning & Memory in Animals
An association between elevated fluoride exposure and reduced intelligence has now been observed in over 50 studies of human populations. Although a link between fluoride and intelligence might initially seem surprising or random, it is actually consistent with a large body of animal research. This animal research includes the following 45 studies where mice or rats […]
Dr. Vyvyan Howard on Fluoride in Drinking Water
Dr. Vyvyan Howard, Past-President of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, explains his concerns about water fluoridation. Dr. Howard is a medical toxico-pathologist who specializes in the impact of toxins on fetal and infant health. In this video, Dr. Howard discusses his concerns about fluoride’s impact on infant health.
Fluoride’s ability to damage the brain is one of the most active areas of fluoride research today. Over 300 studies have found that fluoride is a neurotoxin (a chemical that can damage the brain). This research includes: Over 100 animal studies showing that prolonged exposure to varying levels of fluoride can damage the brain, particularly when […]
