Fluoride Action Network

The National Toxicology Program

This section is dedicated to the National Toxicology Program’s (NTP) long involvement with the issue of fluoride's toxicity. The NTP is the scientific research arm for U.S. regulatory agencies. It comes under the aegis of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The NIEHS, in turn, comes under the umbrella of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). -Updated March 2023 (EC).

March 15, 2023: Documents released by NTP

On March 15, 2023, the following documents were released by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) as part of an agreement under the ongoing Toxic Substances & Control Act (TSCA) lawsuit against the EPA on fluoride’s neurotoxicity.

Efforts were made by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and others, to thwart their release.

An article by Dan Ross, published on March 14, 2023, the day before NTP released the documents, gives the background.

NTP has the following, as well as other documents, online at their site.
