Water Fluoridation Officially Classified as a Neurotoxin
March 10, 2014 by Barbara Minton

(Health Secrets) The fluoridation of water supplies began more than 60 years ago, and helped usher in the beginning of the “better living through chemistry” era in which we have found ourselves. Another benchmark of this era is the meteoric rise in neuro-developmental disabilities such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bi-polar disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments that have afflicted millions of children worldwide with increasing frequency. Now scientists have documented the connection between these two events, in a study published this month in the journal Lancet Neurology.

The study led its authors, Dr. Philippe Grandjean of the Harvard School of Public Health, and Dr. Philip Landrigan of the Icahn School of Medicine, to classify fluoride as a developmental neurotoxin, meaning it is toxic to brain cells. As a result, cognitive development is impaired and intelligence quotient (IQ) is reduced.

They write, “A meta-analysis of 27 cross-sectional studies of children exposed to fluoride in drinking water, mainly from China, suggests an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations.” The majority of these studies showed levels of fluoride at concentrations which the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently allows in the US, which is less than 4 milligrams per liter.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) 276 million Americans are still consuming fluoridated drinking water. The CDC along with the American Dental Association has long been a strong advocate for water fluoridation.

Fluoride joins the rouges gallery of industrial chemicals injuring developing brains

The same research team conducted a systematic review in 2006, and identified five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxins: lead, methyl mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since then, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxins: manganese, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, the polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and now fluoride. The scientists postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.

Harm from neurotoxins is often untreatable and the damage is permanent. The pharmaceutical drugs that have become so popular and profitable for treating chemically injured brains do nothing to heal. Instead they simply mask the symptoms temporarily but ultimately cause even greater dysfunction through their side effects, one of which is brain shrinkage.

Gandjean and Landrigan note their concern that children worldwide are “being exposed to unrecognized toxic chemicals that are silently eroding intelligence, disrupting behaviors, truncating future achievement, and damaging societies.” According to them, it is crucial to control the use of all harmful chemicals to protect children’s brain development.

To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxity, they are proposing a global prevention strategy that would include mandatory testing of chemicals and the formation of a clearinghouse to evaluate them for potential neurotoxicity, alone and in combination. “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean states. “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.”

Commenting on the classification of fluoride as a dangerous neurotoxin, Fluoride Action Network Executive Director Paul Connett, PhD, said “adding more fluoride to American’s already excessive intake no longer has any conceivable justification. We should follow the evidence and try to reduce fluoride intake, not increase it.”

Fluoride is not easily eliminated from the body. It accumulates in bones and teeth, and even in the pineal gland. As many as 41% of teens and adults who have grown up with water fluoridation have dental fluorosis, a mottling of their tooth enamel. Other conditions linked to long term intake of fluoridated water are DNA damage, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, endocrine disruption (particularly to the thyroid), inability to focus, accelerated aging, lowered immunity, sleep disorders, and muted psychic awareness and spiritual development.

Abstract

Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. Industrial chemicals that injure the developing brain are among the known causes for this rise in prevalence. In 2006, we did a systematic review and identified five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants-manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered. To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity. To coordinate these efforts and to accelerate translation of science into prevention, we propose the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse.

Fluoride Classified as Dangerous to Developing Brains

Fluoride joins lead, arsenic, methylmercury, toluene, tetrachloroethylene, and other chemicals known to cause harm to brains, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

Fluoride is newly classified as a developmental neurotoxin by medical authorities in the March 2014 journal Lancet Neurology (a search for the word fluoride in this article will not produce results, we suggest you search for ride). The authors are Dr. Philippe Grandjean of the Harvard School of Public Health and Dr. Philip Landrigan of the Icahn School of Medicine.

The authors write “A meta-analysis of 27 cross-sectional studies of children exposed to fluoride in drinking water, mainly from China, suggests an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations.” The majority of these 27 studies had water fluoride levels which the US Environmental Protection Agency currently allows in the US – less than 4 milligrams per liter.

Developmental neurotoxins are capable of causing widespread brain disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, and other cognitive impairments. The harm is often untreatable and permanent.

Grandjean and Landrigan write, “Our very great concern is that children worldwide are being exposed to unrecognized toxic chemicals that are silently eroding intelligence, disrupting behaviors, truncating future achievements, and damaging societies, perhaps most seriously in developing countries.”

The authors say it’s crucial to control the use of all harmful chemicals to protect children’s brain development. They propose mandatory testing of these chemicals and the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse to evaluate them for potential neurotoxicity. “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain,” Grandjean says. “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.”

Paul Connett, PhD, FAN Executive Director says, “In light of the new classification of fluoride as a dangerous neurotoxin, adding more fluoride to American’s already excessive intake no longer has any conceivable justification. We should follow the evidence and try to reduce fluoride intake, not increase it.”

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports 276 million Americans are consuming fluoridated drinking water, largely as a result of the CDC’s vigorous advocacy to maintain and increase those numbers.

But the CDC’s own evidence reveals Americans already show signs of fluoride-overexposure and reports that 41% of American teenagers have dental fluorosis, a physical marker that they ingested too much fluoride while their teeth were forming. Evidence also shows these markers in the US are not decreasing over time, but are increasing. Connett asks, “Why would the CDC persist in going against the tide of evidence to promote higher fluoride intake. Sadly, it seems, health agencies in fluoridated countries seem to be more intent on protecting the fluoridation program than protecting children’s brains.”

Too bad we can't file a class action suit against the FDA for approving the use of flouride back in the day but it was part of the big plan all along. Funny thing is that flouride actually causes dental damage rather than strengthening teeth as it was prosed when the idea was originally "sold" to the public. I was a kid back in the 70's and can still remember all of the flouride propaganda in commercials and from the school dental hygenist and such.

Why can't we file a class action law suit?

well maybe we can. It could include everyone born in or living in the US for over the past 45 years or so. Know any good lawyers? :)

Know any good lawyers? :)

Are there such a thing? ;)

Actually no but I was wondering if a class action would even be allowable/legal. You'd have to prove individual harm I suppose? Who would you sue? The local water company? The local government for allowing the fluoride? Both?

Back when I lived in KY a man from the state would come to our farm and put fluoride into the well water.
If I recall correctly. We had a spring and well of our own and let the gov't poison it.

Matt welcome to Avalon...

My husband is a 30+ year practicing USA lawyer and he is a very good man...no he is not as awake as I would like however he actually decided to be a lawyer because he thought he could help people..and he has but he also has learned how F**k*d the system is and being a lawyer pays the bills...

That said i have been briefing him about fluoride because it is a topic that i am passionate about and I am making head way...there is hope... I will report back when I have made more progress.

Matt and all we are doing great work and i thank us all for that!

Much love! :grouphug:

Perhaps this report will help get the fluoride out.

I drank tap water from the city most of my life until a few months ago where I decided to buy some 5 gallon jugs and fill them up at my dads well in the country. Now when I drink water from restaurants and whatnot it tastes like dead water to me.

And add to the list of deleterious effects of fluoride compounds in the water and salt supplies decreased fertility and damage to the reproductive organs and renal failure.

We need to see Fluoride go . It seems like such a easy case to prove.
The brainwashing has been effective and deeply engrained.
With professionals saying its good for your teeth.
In the US a lot of the Fluoride is coming from China.
God only knows what else is in there? I know things are changing but not fast enough. Here's another bit if you like.

There is a very small benefit from low doses of a particular fluoride, but of course authorities always use the cheaper, less effective (and dangerous) kind. The amount that provides benefit comes from nature, often in black tea and other plants.

Of course the Russians used fluoride in POW camps to make the prisoners complacent and apathetic, easier to control. The Nazis did something similar.

Guess who the largest contributor to the American Dental Association is. The fertilizer industry! Wha.....? Yep, fluoride is a waste byproduct of their processes. Same with Alcoa Aluminum company. Got to keep the dentists happy so they'll continue to promote the worthless poison!
