A Harvard University researchers' review of fluoride/brain studies concludes "our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children's neurodevelopment." It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences' journal, reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation.
The study showed that, "The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas. Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature "
Infant formula when mixed with fluoridated water delivers 100-200 times more fluoride than breast milk.
Bottom line, fluoride is even worse than Murray Rothbard thought. But be sure to check out Rothbard's explanation of how the evil Aluminum Corporation of America was responsible for fluoride being introduced into water supplies, using dubious science.
