Michael Connett on Fluoride & IQ Studies
Michael Connett of the Fluoride Action Network gives a presentation on the mounting evidence that fluoride reduces IQ in children. The IQ studies are just the “tip of the iceberg” when these animal and non-IQ studies are considered. Research continues to support the idea that fluoride is a neurotoxin. Video from the 2014 Fluoride Action […]
Impact of Fluoride on Neurological Development in Children
In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.
Fluoride & IQ: The 52 Studies
As of September 2017, a total of 59 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence, and over 40 studies have investigated the relationship fluoride and learning/memory in animals. Of these investigations, 52 of the 59 human studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ, while 45 animal studies have […]
Breast-Feeding May Boost IQ
Children who were breast-fed exclusively for the first three months of life or longer scored nearly six points higher on IQ tests at the age of 6 than children who weren’t breast-fed exclusively, a new study has found.
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 […]
