New Study Finds Fluoride Exposure Correlated To Lower IQ

Researchers in Toronto, Canada have published a peer-reviewed study in Environmental Health Perspectives which finds that increased exposure to fluoride in utero is associated with lower IQ in children.

X-axis: fluoride exposure in utero, Y-axis: IQ

In a study spanning more than a decade, the researchers analyzed 1,576 samples from nearly 300 sets of mothers and children in Mexico where fluoride is not added to public water supplies, and is instead absorbed through naturally occurring concentrations in public water and fluoridated products. The IQ of children included in the study was tested twice up to the age of 12, which revealed a decrease in IQ scores for every .5 milligram-per-liter increase in fluoride exposure beyond 0.8 milligrams per liter of a pregnant mother's urine. 

What about exposure out of the womb?

While the Canadian researchers did not find a correlation between fluoride intake and lowered IQ once a child was born, there have been over 50 studies on the impact from the industrial byproduct on the human body as of September 2016.

CNN reports "Previous studies have found fluoride to be a potential neurotoxin at extremely high levels. Many of these studies have been conducted in China, where fluoride levels in water can be as high as 30 milligrams per liter. The Environmental Protection Agency has set a limit of 4 milligrams per liter."

And in a 2012 meta-analysis of 27 such studies published in Environmental Health Perspectives, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in conjunction with China Medical University in Shenyang reported that 'fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children,' adding 'children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas.'

“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” said Harvard researcher Phillippe Grandjean. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

In  a follow-up study, the Harvard-led research team concluded that 'fluoride in drinking water may produce developmental neurotoxicity.'

"Results of our pilot study showed that moderate and severe dental fluorosis was significantly associated with deficits in WISC-IV digit span. Children with moderate or severe dental fluorosis scored significantly lower in total and backward digit span tests than those with normal or questionable fluorosis. These results suggest a deficit in working memory." -via Sciencedirect.com

And who's been talking about the dangers of fluoride for nearly a decade? Why, Alex Jones of Infowars!

How come nobody in the dental industry has ever shown any adverse symtoms and they're up to their elbows in it, all the time?

I asked my dentist about this issue and said it was just 100% bullshit.

Uh, maybe because part of his INCOME is derived through selling FLUORIDE TREATMENTS.  It's hard to get a man to understand something he is payed not to understand.

This lady in the linked video is one of the smartest researchers on fluoridation.  Have a look.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9daqPRUWpMc

Having been a machinist for many years, it was very illuminating to learn the effects of the combination of fluoride with aluminum (Aluminum Tetrafluoride) and with beryllium (Beryllium Tetrafluoride).  The combination is exponentially more toxic than most other compounds of fluoride and disrupts a score of bodily and mental processes.  Watch the video linked above if you have not.  You will learn something you should know.

A fews years ago I began to make toothpaste with Bentonite Clay, sea salt, baking soda, coconut oil, peppermint oil, and a few drops of tea tree oil.  My teeth are much better for it and it's a lot cheaper than buying than poisonous shit made for imbeciles.  

I used to be an active but mostly functional alcoholic (always kept a job).  In my recovery, I researched the effects of environmental toxins and nutrition as it pertains to alcoholism in great depth.  It was time to get sober or get dead.  I drink RO water now, make my own toothpaste, eat a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit (of which some is from my garden), eat a lot of ground flax seed and many spices like turmeric and cumin, and I took a dose of colloidal gold for the first year of recovery.  People may laugh at all this, but I couldn't stay stopped before all this and now I have over 2 1/2 years sober.  It make all the difference.  Nowadays I don't even take aspirin or ibuprofen for any arthritis pains - Curcumin fixes that.

Your getting a double whammy in your urban water supplies, the source water is showing elevated levels of sodium fluoride.  All that fluoride being pissed out all these decades has got to go somewhere.  You can bet your back side they aren't compensating at the city metering valve either.  Wonder how many accidental dumps happen at the local water plant in a year at the national level.  Who's in charge of that circus, Flint Michigan anyone, because you know they'd let you know.

I swear this shit also causes low T in men.  It's an epidemic the .gov doesn't want solved.  Low T men are easily controlled.

I know, I'm a crazy conspiracy guy....if SO, then why is it every doc who's 'in network' won't prescribe T to men who are suffering?

I'll go back to trying to figure out how WTC - 7 collapsed....

Flouride is a byproduct of aluminum, and is very expensive to dispose of.  Need I say more?  Flouride leaves calcifications (stones) in its path and the assessment is some of these minute-size stones will end up in a tooth fracture line all the while depositing in every other tissue it passes, including brain white matter.  Electromagnetic field is disrupted by non-conductive material which is exactly what fluoide is - a rock, however small.  If they cared about our teeth, they'd make dental care as affordable as bottom shelf wine. 

400 murdered politicians later, some Americans cannot figure out they are under siege because they continue to live normally.  Only thing keeping Americans from a guard at the door is 100 million gun owners.  The entire world wants to dismantle the USA, they are banking on it.  Rich kid on the block is now in debt and failing health.  Autism is wiping out the next generation. Personality Dysfunction in everyday lives sucks up massive amounts of time and resource, disabling and maiming characters into a featureless mirror of wants and needs, a useless eater.

Well, from the looks of all the animals running around in the streets these days, hard to argue with the brain damage claim.

“Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” said Harvard researcher Phillippe Grandjean. “The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.”

Let's not forget to add this is the most vaccinated generation of all time.

But, yeah, do as your told. Flouride and vaccines are good for you.

Super Blue Iodine based non fluoride toothpaste is great. It is the first non fluoride toothpaste I ever had that seemed to hit all the right notes. Wow! I bet Alex makes the lions share of his fortune from it and ensures the InfoWAR fights on.

Alex should get it in all the stores and he will be the next Procter and Gamble, only better and more righteous.

Many of these studies have been conducted in China, where fluoride levels in water can be as high as 30 milligrams per liter

Wow! I'm guessing the Chinese have really nice teeth.

What they don't have in nice they make up for in lots of.

Rich people do not drink tap water, poor people do. All the article demonstrated, if anything, is the correlation between wealth and IQ. As others pointed out basing a conclusion on outliers is faulty and correlation doesn't equal causation.

People are seeing what they want to see in random data. For example if you cut off the data at 1.2 mg/L then you'll get a line that says that fluoride makes people smarter ;-)

Throw away your biases for just a second and actually look at that data in that graph. It's indistinguishable from random. Above 2.5 mg/L there are only 2 data points! It's correlation is indistinguishable from zero.

Floride has been under examination for a very long time and even the "science" that decided it was good to put in water was frudulent - follow the money always.

 

Ever read the label on your toothpaste?  It tells you not to swallow even a "pea size" amount because of what ingredient?

"Ever read the label on your toothpaste?"

High concentration of fluoride is known to be harmful. But you can say that about nearly anything.

Low concentration Fluoride in water might be harmful. I'm merely pointing out that we can not tell that from the data presented in the graph. If that's the best data there is then it appears to have no statistically significant affect on IQ. In fact the graph gives the impression that small amounts of Fluoride increase intelligence. Look at it truncated (ignore the line, look at the data points).

Skepticism is always good but it can help to look at things from many angles.  The other side of this coin is the increase in infant IQ shown in studies of iodine supplementation in pregnant women.

The thing about iodine receptors, is that they can also updake the other elementary family members including toxic halides such as fluoride especially in cases of iodine insufficiency.

Iodine is vital for the endocrine system, not only in fetal development but all throughout development and adulthood.  This deficiency issue causing abnormal endocrine development is part of the biological picture of the uprise of these non-gendered mentally ill people.  It is also part of the picture of the development of cancers related to the endocrine system in adults.  I do believe that the boron insufficiency issue in our food sources and bodies is also depleting our capacity to properly mobilize not just things like calcium and magnesium, but also the toxic halides that have attached to iodine receptors and begun to accumulate around glands.

Well said. The outliers should be eliminated and we should be looking at the levels up to about 1.25 mg/L correlated to the upper limit on municipal drinking water. Without those outliers skewing the trend line, it would be net zero change.

 

Also, this study is a meta analysis of numerous other studies and change in the trend line is within an acceptable margin of error even if we account for those outliers so there may be no real change in IQ levels in children between low and high flouride water level areas.

 

Better research is needed

Chupacabra-322's picture

Wow!

You math guys sound real smart.

I just turn the box of toothpaste around & read:

If swallowed, call poison control.

quesnay's picture

Hmmm mine doesn't say that. It just says don't swallow it. My toothpaste says it is 0.24% fluoride. Fluoride in the water like they are talking about is around 1 part per million or 0.0001%

Golden Phoenix's picture

You should have read it before you swallowed it.

Fluoridation of water makes little sense.  Supposedly it is good for your teeth but it also dumbs you down.  So the seconds the fluoride comes in contact with your teeth is enough to strengthen them but the hours that the fluoride remains in your digestive system has no effect.  Why don't they add sun screen to the water to help prevent us getting sun burned?  Fluoride is a medication that is given without consent and without being proven to be safe and effective and without instructions to prevent overdosing.  Wealthy people can pay to have clean water and/or filter the medicated fluoridated water but the poor cannot.  This is an assault on the average person.

It reduces tensile strength of bone. I lifetime of consuming it embrittles the skeleton. Boron is more important for tensile strength of bone. Harder doesnt mean stronger.

Think of glass compared to plastic. Which is more likely to break on impact with the floor. The old person fell down and broke their hip. Actually what happens alot is that the old person stood up and their hip broke because of brittle bones, then they fell

Flouride in toothpaste dramatically reduces tooth decay. It's probably pointless to put it in the water, but in topical application it's very effective.

TheMachinist's picture

Doesn't make sense considerably my teeth are much better since I began making my own toothpaste a few years ago.

Peterman333's picture

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in the mouth, teeth are also weakened by conditions that inhibit mineral absorption in the colon. Absorb your minerals with probiotics such as kefir, yogurt and keep your mouth clean with regular brushing and flossing especially with something containing baking soda but no flouride. Regular oil pulling with coconut oil keeps your mouth clean and teeth white. High carb diets have been shown to cause damage to teeth in studies of ancient native american populations, sugar and sweets will rot your teeth. Drug use and things like aspartame diet sodas will make your teeth break and fall out.

Fluoride - The Hard to Swallow Truth Documentary
John Kerry-Heinz's picture

Says who, the dentist?  All that drill monkey knows are from studies printed several decades ago (by .gov I might add) and that every one of their patients uses fluoridated toofpaste with the exception of those that don’t brush them at all (which is why their teeth are decaying).  Do you really believe if you stop using fluoride products your teeth will decay and fall out of your mouth?  Wake up as you’re not alone, this type of information has been continuously hammered into our heads since we were born. 

It’s all about keeping the population docile and unable to easily connect the dots.  I implore you to simply try using toothpaste and water without fluoride and for at least two weeks and evaluate if your mind accelerates and “clears up” or does not.  One note, it not easy to find toothpaste without fluoride, almost all tap water has it (at least in the states) and is in virtually all manufactured goods.

I drink distilled water and add potassium, magnesium and/or calcium to offset the demineralization effect of distilled water.  Strontium and boron are elements needed to keep teeth and bones healthy and most diets contain little to none of either.  Drinking milk, another "science fraud" does not make strong bones as is advertised.  Another story for another day.

Un no. Its more about eating mineral rich foods. Start juicing vegetables and I can guarantee that you will greatly reduce dental cavities, as well as have much stronger bones.

Apeon's picture

the minerals in the agricultural soils have been leached out by the Super Large crops, brought to you by phosphate fertilizers, which make the Plants bigger, reducing the Concentration of minerals in them, and so you eat more to get what used to be standard amounts in your food----your whole system suffers----but the PHOSPHATE MAKERS, have to sell their product somewhere, especially when there are fewer wars.

Point to a research article with empirical data and I might believe you otherwise you are simply talking out of personal belief.

afronaut's picture

Yes Only my personal experience. There are reputable studies out there but they mostly focus on a vegetable based diet supplemented with dairy. 

personally I have , without a doubt in my own mind experienced the benefit of freshly pressed vegetable juice. It is however not in a controlled environment so not worthy as empirical data.

Albertarocks's picture

Are you serious?  You're asking somebody to point you to a research article that proves that eating healthy foods is good for you?  I can't believe I read what you just wrote.

quesnay's picture

No. Research that shows that vegetable juice reduces cavities and strengthens bones. Mostly the cavity part is what I'm focusing on.

Quote:

"Start juicing vegetables and I can guarantee that you will greatly reduce dental cavities, as well as have much stronger bones."

afronaut's picture

I guess saying I guaranteee is overly zealous. Obviously not scientific and I do agree with you. I would not however say such a thing if I were on a science forum, without some studies to site. In reality I can not guarantee such a thing, as I cannot control the other variables in your daily life. But I can say that you will get an increase in minerals in your diet. Which make the likelihood of stronger bones and teeth significantly increase. I know through personal experience. Thats all.
