In this short PSA, Ed Begley Jr addresses recent research linking elevated fluoride exposure to reduced IQ. Based on this and other research, Begley has added his voice to the growing number of people calling for an end to fluoridation.
Harvard Scientist Criticizes Wichita Paper’s Whitewash of Fluoride/IQ Study
Dr. Philippe Grandjean, the senior scientist on the Harvard team, has criticized the Wichita Eagle for deceptively attributing its own conclusions on fluoridation to the Harvard scientists. Fluoridation’s potential to produce “chemical brain drain,” Grandjean writes, is an issue that “definitely deserves concern.”

Despite calls by the National Research Council and a team of Harvard scientists to take these findings seriously, American fluoridation proponents are cavalierly dismissing the warnings based on misleading, and even demonstrably false, claims.
Infant Fluoride Exposure
Of all age groups, infants are the most vulnerable to fluoride toxicity. Due to their small size, infants receive up to 400% more fluoride (per pound of body weight) than adults consuming the same level of fluoride in water. Not only do infants receive a larger dose, they have an impaired ability to excrete fluoride through […]
