NTP Review Confirms Fluoride Is A Presumed Developmental Neurotoxicant

On September 16, 2020, the National Toxicology Program released a draft monograph on the Systematic Review of Fluoride Exposure and Neurodevelopmental and Cognitive Health Effects. The report reconfirms that fluoride is “presumed to be a cognitive neurodevelopmental hazard to humans” while claiming that the evidence is stronger and more consistent for studies in which subjects […]
