Fluoride Action Network

DRAFT New Studies

April 24th, 2013

In March 2006, the National Research Council of the National Academies (NRC) released a landmark report on the toxicology of fluoride titled Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards.

The Table below are studies published after the NRC report.
