20+ More Fluoride-Disparaging Studies Un-Publicized – Health Reporters Failing Us? Or is it Advertisers? Legislators Timid?

20+ More Fluoride-Disparaging Studies Un-Publicized – Health Reporters Failing Us? Or is it Advertisers? Legislators Timid?

Poorly done pro-fluoride studies are widely publicized but never fact-checked. Fluoride disparaging studies are ignored. Ever more studies link fluoride to brain, kidney, thyroid, bone, vascular damage and more. Are health reporters letting us down or just unable or unwillling to decipher science?  Are organized dentistry or advertisers pulling their strings? Are legislators too concerned with their own political viability than the truth?  Follow the Money.

Fluoride chemicals added to public water supplies is touted as a safe tooth-decay preventive. However, a growing body of research shows fluoridation can cause harm. Here are headlines you have been deprived of:

Fluoride Linked to ADHD (Environment International (2018)

Fluoride Linked to Underactive Thyroid Gland

(Environment International 2018)

Fluoride Linked to Lower IQ

(Environmental Health Perspective 2018)


Fluoride can do Neurologic Damage in Utero

(Neurotoxicity 2017)

ADHD Symptoms Linked to Early-Life Exposure to Fluoride (Environment International 2018)

Fluoride Linked to Thyroid Dysfunction in  Iodine-deficient Adults (Environment International 2018)

  •               More studies you should be aware of:

1)  “Childhood fluoride exposure was associated with atherosclerotic biomarkers.” (Environmental Research 2019)
2) “The risk of brain damage from low-fluorine exposure cannot be ignored” (Chemosphere April      2019)

3) “Fluoride could be considered an environmental kidney toxicant.” (Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology 2018)

4) “Viral infection and fluoride toxicity as contributors to chronic kidney disease.” (International Urology and Nephrology 2018 )

  • –     8) “Fluorosis is associated with a higher incidence of OPLL”  [a spinal cord disease] (Neurology India 2018)
  •     9) Fluoride included in “Environmental chemical exposures and neurodevelopmental impairments in children” (Pediatric Medicine 2018
  •     10) “Long-term high intake of fluoride can cause skeletal fluorosis in patients with diabetes insipidus” Zhongguo Gu Shang (2017)
  •    13)  “Fluorosis is more common in adults with lifetime exposure to water fluoridation than those with no exposure” Community Dentistry & Oral Epidemiology 2018)
  •    14) Editorial (Fluoride 2018) “Fluoride-induced Developmental Disorders and Iodine Deficiency Disorders as Examples of Developmental Disorders Due to Disturbed Thyroid Hormone Metabolism”
  •    16) Fluoride could be implicated in Alzheimer’s Disease (International Journal of                     Molecular Sciences 2018) and
  •     17)  Fluoride could be implicated in Dementia (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 2019)

Additionally,  “A major review article in the journal Pediatric Medicine by Dr. David Bellinger includes fluoride in a list of chemicals known or suspected to interfere with the neurodevelopment of children.

In his review of fluoride’s neurotoxicity, Bellinger cites the meta-analysis of 27 IQ studies from China and Iran (Choi et al., 2012); a follow-up study in China he co-authored (Choi et al., 2015) and the more recent US-government funded mother-offspring studies from Mexico City (Bashash et al., 2017 and 2018). These latter studies, which controlled for many possible confounders, found a very strong association between fluoride levels in the pregnant mothers’ urine and lowered IQ in their offspring. These fluoride urine levels from the mothers in Mexico City correspond to the fluoride levels in pregnant women in fluoridated communities in Canada (Till et al., 2018).

More human studies from 2018 – 2019
