Fluoride awareness is really taking off, it’s just another example of what we can do as one collective human race when we come together and create awareness on topics we all feel need more critical examination. Many don’t consider information to be significant unless published in a peer-review journal. This simply isn’t true, it’s a stigmatism that has led a lot of great independent research by experts, for experts, that still goes through a review process to be ignored.

A ground breaking publication in one of the top main-stream medical journals has now added six additional substances into its classification of neurotoxicants, and one of them is fluoride.(1) Fluoride is commonly used in dental products, and still remains as an additive in the drinking water supply of numerous communities all over the world. Although activism has been successful in removing it in many countries, cities and communities, some still remain who have yet to take action, one for example, is Toronto, a city of five million plus people.

The publications abstract reads as follows:

“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, methyl mercury (common in vaccines), polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants – manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated dihenyl 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”(1)

It’s quickly becoming a known fact that the fluoride in our drinking water is harmful, it’s not even the natural element of fluoride, it’s industrial toxic waste. The publication cites research from the Harvard Medical School of Public Health that found links between fluoridated water, ADHD and mental disorders, you can read more about that here. 

There’s a reason multiple countries and communities all over the world are putting an end to water fluoridation.

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.” (2)  – Dr. Dean Burk, Biochemist, Founder of Biotin, and Former Chief Chemist at the National Cancer Institute of Health.

More From 'Awareness'

CE provides a space for free thinkers to explore and discuss new, alternative information and ideas. The goal? Question everything, think differently, spread love and live a joy filled life.

  1. Sebastian A.B.

    “National Cancer Institute of Health.”

    I think you mean the NCI, which was part of the NIH.

    Where did that quote come from? How do we know it is authentic?

  2. theres your harvard study. It also states that the study was done in china where fluoride levels are much higher.

    • Actually the doses in the studies are the same as those authorised for usage in US, England, Ireland and Canada. Please do your research! Harvard professors have collated 27 scientifically valid studies, all of which showed brain damage in children. Many other studies were discounted for various reasons. The remaining studies are valid and show that FLUORIDE CAUSES CANCER AND BRAIN DAMAGE.

      • Deb Petronio

        Actually the China cases were done in villages with extremely high levels of naturally occurring fluoride in the water. They were not even comparable to what is put into the public water supply. Less, but similar levels occur in some western US states in localized areas. It is not a sound practice to use these levels to justify non fluoridation. Remember that anything is a toxin in high enough levels. The amount of fluoride in the public supply is intended to have enough to help prevent cavities, while not causing other damage, but it is always a risk/benefit calculation. Tooth decay has decreased tremendously, but is still a large reason for childhood suffering. When you pull the fluoride from the water supply you are targeting the people who are most in need of help. People with the least amount of education, money, and power are the ones who benefit the most from government programs like this. Studies using the levels that are actually useful do not find the problems that keep being suggested, but it seems like the lack of drama makes those studies undesirable.

        • Totally agree with Deb Petronio here. Here again, is nothing more than Fluoride fear-mongering by what I call the “organic crowd”….over-educated Academics who have nothing better to do than take government money to do studies that they claim show disrespect to their fellow scientific community who has already done numerous studies to show the exact opposite. This is why every time these kinds of studies come out you have to take the with a grain of salt, because weeks, months, years later, a study comes out that contradicts older studies. With that said, Yes, I totally agree that anything ingested in high doses can be toxic…but small amounts can be very beneficial. For example, one can die from drinking too much milk, but one would never say that milk is a toxin. Everything in moderation is my motto. The amount of Fluoride in drinking water is miniscule compared to the amount that is required for the negative effects to occur.

  3. why is the pdf link listed as your source and that originally showed the full report and findings now redirects us to a short article. I am trying to get a hold of this report again— I have been sharing and just noticed now the pdf link redirects to a short summary article instead of the full report and findings. Cant find the report now anywhere… help?

    • I have studied Neurology myself, and you cannot argue with the findings in the Harvard paper published in March 2014’s edition of the Lancet.

      It is astounding with such clear scientific proof being offered, with clear systematic review of evidence being carried out, that pro-fluoridation campaigners still are able to bury their heads in the sand and continue with an almost religious zeal for the mass-medication of the population with Fluoride, which has now been re-classified by these highly respected medical authorities as a “Developmental Neurotoxin”. This means that it damages the brain in infants and children. The evidence is clear, IQ is being reduced in children in areas where water fluoridation is in place. This is just one of many reports showing the dangers of fluoride and there are numerous reports worldwide connecting Fluoride with Cancer, ADHD, Autism and Dislexia.

      When Harvard speaks the science community normally listens, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a global ban on water fluoridation is not far away.

      In Mar 14, a scientific research paper written by Harvard professors has re-classified Fluoride as developmental neurotoxin alongside lead, mercury and arsenic. This was published in the worlds #1 medical neurology journal ‘The Lancet’. It is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE for PHE to continue pushing for water Fluoridation in light of these scientific findings.

      The paper is here, you must register but it is free:

    “Stigmatism” refers to an ophthalmic disorder and the manner in which it is used in the article above is malapropos.

      Susan, This was a review paper, not a research paper. as someone who studies neurology you should know the difference. The review paper references (#44) a paper out of rural china that makes these claims. I would not put too much weight on this research.

  6. i don’t share when spammed to share

  7. Dan Germouse

    The following are some good sources of information: the Fluoride Action Network, Declan Waugh’s work, the books The Case Against Fluoride and The Fluoride Deception, the 2006 US National Research Council report Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards, and the peer-reviewed journal Fluoride.

    The forced-fluoridation experiment is medical malpractice on an industrial scale. Fluoridation chemicals are the only medications which are delivered via public water supplies. Medicating public water supplies with any chemical violates the ethical principle of informed consent, is entirely indiscriminate, results in the random dosing of residents since the fluoride dose received from water and other sources is uncontrolled, and is environmentally irresponsible because the vast majority of tap water is not ingested, so the environmental load is vastly greater than it needs to be. Medicating public water supplies means that politicians are subjecting everyone to treatment which no doctor can legally impose on anyone, and is surely the most ham-fisted method of drug delivery ever devised.

    Medicating public water supplies with fluoridation chemicals is especially egregious, because fluoride is a cumulative poison with a half life in the body of around 20 years, there was no good quality scientific research which indicated that forced-fluoridation was anything but harmful and useless in the 1940s and there still isn’t any, the best quality scientific research which has been conducted indicates that forced-fluoridation is in fact both harmful and useless, the fluoridation chemicals which are used are industrial grade rather than pharmaceutical grade, and fluoride is not biodegradable. The forced-fluoridation experiment is immoral, illegal, irrational, archaic, pseudoscientific, and not worth the risk.
