Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ

Fluoride is added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies to aid in the prevention of cavities.

This benefit is dubious at best, as there is practically no difference in tooth decay rates between fluoridated and non-fluoridated countries, and no difference between states that fluoridate a high versus low percentage of their water.

Yet, while fluoride in drinking water does NOT decrease rates of tooth decay, numerous studies show that this chemical has a wide array of devastating health effects – one of them being lowered IQ.

Yet Another Study Links Fluoride to Lower IQ Levels

A review of brain studies involving the use of fluoride has concluded that one of the adverse effects of fluoride exposure on children is damage to their neurological development.1 According to the Harvard researchers, children who lived in high-fluoride areas had “significantly lower IQ than those in low fluoride areas,” with the authors noting:

“The results support the possibility of an adverse effect of high fluoride exposure on children’s neurodevelopment.“

This just adds to the growing number of animal and human studies demonstrating the damage fluoride inflicts on your brain, including your pineal gland. The results of one study looking at children’s intelligence in two towns – one with fluoridated water and one without – were particularly revealing, with about 28 percent of the children in the low-fluoride area scoring as “bright, normal or higher intelligence” compared to only 8 percent in the high-fluoride area.2

Further, 15 percent of children in the high-fluoride city had signs of mental retardation, compared with only 6 percent in the low-fluoride city. And the study even accounted for other potential variables, such as lead exposure, iodine deficiency or a history of brain disease or head injury. There have been over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage.

Mainstream media pushes malicious fluoride lie: Fluoride-free bottled water is harming children, they claim!

[NaturalNews] The mainstream media is at it again, lying to the public about fluoride. This time, the culprit is HealthDay, a “canned news” service that spits out lies and disinformation to be published by subscribing websites. Recently, HealthDay put out a story by author Alan Mozes claiming that bottled water might be harming children’s dental health because there’s no fluoride in it! (

And to really push their lie, they print the following conglomeration of total disinfo:

A salt formed from the combination of fluorine and soil and rock minerals, fluoride is voluntarily added by the vast majority of states and/or local municipalities…

This statement is, of course, a complete fabrication. The so-called “fluoride” actually added to municipal water supplies does not come from soil and rock minerals; it comes from industrial waste facilities and phosphate mining scrubbers:

Much of it is imported from chemical companies in China, and it often contains over 100 different chemicals — including radioactive elements — which aren’t even fluoride!

These toxic chemicals are so highly corrosive that they eat metal, undercover footage reveals:

See the bizarre history of fluoride:

See this interview with Fluoride Free Austin:

Mandatory, not voluntary!

Even worse, HealthDay tries to make fluoride sound like something everybody wants by saying it is “voluntarily added by the vast majority of states…”

This is a lie as well. Fluoride is mandatory in the water for those people who are unfortunate to live in a fluoridated area. They never “volunteered” to have fluoride in their water. They were never given a choice. To write that fluoride is “voluntarily added” — against the will of many members of the public — is wholly deceptive. To people turning on their tap water, fluoride is mandatory!

Saying that fluoride is “voluntary” is like saying breathing air pollution is voluntary, too, because chemical plants “voluntarily” spew toxic pollution into the air. Such word choice is highly deceptive journalism, if you can even call it journalism. (It’s really just blatant propaganda.)

Milwaukee Becomes The Latest Of Many Cities To End Water Fluoridation

August 3, 2012

Milwaukee has become the latest city that opts to end water fluoridation.

With studies such as the latest Harvard study linking fluoride to lower IQ, it is of no surprise that we saw hundreds of dentists last year rise up and stake a stance against water fluoridation.

Adding a major addendum to this recent event in Milwaukee, is the fact that there were a total of 37 cities which outright rejected & displaced water fluoridation in 2011.

Bourbon, Indiana as well as Lawrence, Kansas have also followed suit in ending water fluoridation this year.

With the many dangers & dark history revolving around fluoride, its no wonder more cities are taking a stance in fighting for their health rights, as opposed to making the dire mistake of leaving their health to the government via the erroneous water fluoridation America has been historically predisposed too.
