Neurotoxic and Lowers IQ
In 1995, neurotoxicologist and former Director of toxicology at Forsyth
Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix published research showing
that fluoride built up in the brains of animals when exposed to moderate
levels. Damage to the brain occured and the behavior patterns of the animals
was adversely effected.
The Department of Health in New Jersey found that bone cancer in male
children was between two and seven times greater in areas where water
Changes Bone Structure and Strength
Fluoride gradually builds up in the bones and causes adverse changes to
the bone structure. Quite a few studies have shown that fluoridation leads
to increases in hip fractures. The tensile strength of the hip is destroyed
over time by fluoride ingestion.
Causes Birth Defects and Perinatal Deaths
A toxicologist in the United Kingdom recently found that perinatal deaths
in a fluoridated area was 15% higher than in neighboring non-fluoridated
Fluoride compounds in water and in supplements do not provide any significant
Impairs Immune System
Independent research has shown that fluoride impairs the functioning of
the immune system.
Causes Acute Adverse
Several double-blind studies have shown that fluoridated water can often
cause acute adverse reactions including gastrointestinal symptoms, stomatitis,
joint pains, polydipsia, headaches, visual disturbances, muscular weakness,
and extreme tiredness.
Causes Initial Stages of Skeletal Fluorosis
Fluoride can cause severe skeletal fluorosis at high levels. Chronic,
long-term exposure to levels of fluoride commonly found in water and food
in the U.S. can cause the beginning stages of skeletal fluorosis including:
pains in bones and joints, sensations of burning, pricking, and tingling
in the limbs, muscle weakness, chronic fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders,
reduced appetite, backache, osteoarthritis, etc.
Increases Lead and Arsenic Exposure
Fluoride compounds put into water are often contaminated with lead, arsenic
and radio nuclides since the fluoride compounds are toxic waste byproducts
which largely come from pollution scrubbers of fertilizer plants.
the Development of Repetitive Stress Injury
A clinical study in New Zealand showed that fluoride ingestion may be
a contributing factor in the development of Repetative Stress Injury (RSI)
since such ingestion may encourage the development of apatite crystal
Disfigurement of the Teeth in Many Children
A very large and increasing number of children are experiencing dental
fluorosis which is a permanent adverse structural change to the teeth.
Causes Large Numbers
of Acute Poisonings
Fluoride is an extremely poisonous substances at exceptionally low doses and
has caused a large number of acute poisonings. This is why a poison warning
is now required on fluoridated toothpastes sold in the U.S.
