  • Several In Utero Fluoride/IQ Studies Should Provoke A Nation-Wide Fluoridation Moratorium

    NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Critics of the fluoride-IQ study published this month in JAMA Pediatrics claimed it needed replication. However, the Canadian study by Green (2019) was already a replication of another U.S. government-funded study published in 2017 by Bashash which found similar effects, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

  • Fluoride Linked to Low IQ, Studies Show

    Children’s intelligence declines as their natural drinking water fluoride levels increase, concluded a Chinese study in the May 2003 journal, “Fluoride.” Children scored inferior IQ’s even when fluoride levels were similar to that added to U.S. water supplies to prevent tooth decay (1). “As the fluoride levels in drinking water increased, the IQ fell and […]

  • Criticisms of Recent JAMA Fluoride/IQ Study Are Unfounded

      FAN PRESS RELEASE AUGUST 21: A newly published carefully-researched and meticulously peer-reviewed US government-funded study published in JAMA Pediatrics reports maternal fluoride levels are linked to offspring’s lower IQ. But the same day the study was released, many fluoridation proponents erroneously dismissed it, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Above Video: Paul Connett Responds to Criticisms of the […]

  • Four Studies That Show Adding Fluoride to Drinking Water Unnecessarily Endangers Children’s Brains

    Dr. Paul Connett, PhD, director of FAN, says of the scientific evidence: “As of 2020 there have been 72 fluoride-IQ studies, of which 64 found a lower IQ among children with higher fluoride exposure. Many of the earlier studies were in places with elevated natural fluoride levels. There is now very strong evidence that fluoride damages both […]

  • Studies of Fluoride Supplements: No Evidence of Safety – No Benefit Either

    According to the Cochrane Oral Health Group, fluoride supplements fail to reduce tooth decay in primary teeth, permanent teeth cavity-reduction is dubious and health risks are little studied (1). Further, “When fluoride supplements were compared with topical fluorides or with other preventive measures, there was no differential effect on permanent or deciduous teeth,” write Cochrane […]
