    Most Americans drink fluoride every day as part of what critics refer to as an involuntary mass-medication program. Organized dentistry argues that it is good for children’s teeth. However, according to a recent report in one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals, the industrial chemical added to water supplies across much of the United States is actually a dangerous developmental neurotoxicant.

    Echoing the recent findings of another Harvard study suggesting that fluoride is associated with drastic reductions in the IQ of children, The Lancet journal report classified the chemical as a harmful neurotoxin. That puts it right alongside lead, mercury, arsenic, and other dangerous substances, the authors said, warning of the potentially far-reaching consequences.

    “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,” noted the authors, Dr. Philippe Grandjean of the Harvard School of Public Health and Dr. Philip Landrigan of New York’s Icahn School of Medicine.

    The level of fluoride analyzed in most of the studies was less than four milligrams per liter, according to media reports. Under U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules surrounding water fluoridation, municipal governments are allowed to use more than the concentrations cited in the study, meaning American kids could be suffering even more serious neurological complications from exposure to the chemical.

    Wonder why the folks who keep telling us pot is dangerous to consume are so quiet when it comes to fluoride?

    Wonder why they aren't here defending fluoride use like they normally would?

    Mysteries. Must be something in the water.

    That makes sense. A doctor gave fluoride drops to one of my children when she was little. I told him they made her ill and he laughed and said no way...nobody is allergic to fluoride and it only causes illness in large doses. I tried it a few more times and threw it in the garbage. Her reaction was undeniable and looked very unpleasant, poor thing!
    No fluoride toothpaste, no fluoride rinses, only organic grapes grown outside of California, etc.. (go look up the fluoride content of grapes and other stuff you eat and why, you'll be amazed)
