JAMA Pediatrics Podcast on Fluoride & IQ
In August of 2019, the world’s premier pediatric journal, JAMA Pediatrics, published a U.S. government-funded study linking exposure to “optimally” fluoridated water during pregnancy to lowered IQ in the child (Green, 2019). JAMA Pediatrics editor, Dimitri Christakis, remarked on the significance of the study in an editorial note, noting the study’s rigor: “This decision to […]
A Deep Dive Into The NTP Fluoride Neurotoxicity Review
“There is very strong evidence that at exposures to fluoridated water occurring right now in the United States, children are being harmed.” – Chris Neurath, FAN Research Director. This 30 minute presentation takes an extended look into the scientific literature on fluoride’s neurotoxicity currently under systematic review by the National Toxicology Program (NTP). Chris Neurath, […]

The next hearing will be in early January 2021. Keep up to date on the trail. FAN is currently fundraising to meet our 2021 budget goal. You can […]
CDC Oral Health Director: We Have No Safety Data on Fluoride and the Brain
“As a rep of CDC to my knowledge we don’t have any knowledge about that.” – Casey Hannan, CDC oral health director, on whether the CDC has any safety data on fluoride exposures for neurotoxic effects on children that could prove fluoride safe. This video segment was extracted from the full deposition of the CDC […]
Top EPA Scientist: EPA’s Current Fluoride Regulation Is Not Safe
“I think it’s a reason for doing an update to the fluoride assessment” – Dr. Joyce Donohue, EPA Office of Water, on recent NIH-funded studies showing fluoride harms the developing brain. This video segment was extracted from the full deposition of the EPA by plaintiffs in the TSCA fluoride lawsuit.
Fluoride Action Network Comments on the Recent NTP Fluoride Review
FAN’s research director Chris Neurath offers public comments on the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) peer-review of the National Toxicology Program’s (NTP) recent report on the neurotoxicity of fluoride. There will be one more round of NAS peer-review before the final NTP report is published. Join FAN and get our bulletins.
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 […]
The Impact of Fluoride on the Developing Brain
Over the past 75 years, health authorities have promoted community water fluoridation to reduce dental caries. Until recently, however, no studies had examined the safety of fluoride in vulnerable populations, like pregnant women and infants. This video describes the history of water fluoridation and new research that found fluoride is toxic to the developing brain. […]
