    New Study: Fluoride Can Damage the Brain – Avoid Use in Children






    June 25, 2011 By Simon Murphy

    PR Newswire

    NEW YORK — “The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system,” concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).

    The research team reports, “It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride.” (1)

    “Fluoride can be toxic by ingesting one part per million (ppm), and the effects are not immediate, as they can take 20 years or more to become evident,” they write.

    Most fluoridating U.S. public drinking water suppliers add fluoride chemicals to deliver 1 ppm fluoride (equal to about 1 milligram per quart) intending to benefit teeth and not to purify the water.
    “Fluoridation clearly jeopardizes our children and must be stopped,” says attorney Paul Beeber, President, NYSCOF. “We can actually see how fluoride has damaged children’s teeth with dental fluorosis; but we can’t see the harm it’s doing to their brains and other organs. No U.S. researcher is even looking,” says Beeber.

    Valdez-Jimenez, et al. describe studies that show fluoride induces changes in the brain’s physical structure and biochemistry which affects the neurological and mental development of individuals including cognitive processes, such as learning and memory.

    “Fluoride is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which may cause biochemical and functional changes in the nervous system during pregnancy, since the fluoride accumulates in brain tissue before birth,” they write.*

    Animal studies show fluoride’s toxic brain effects include classic brain abnormalities found in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, Valdez-Jimenez’s team reports.

    A different research team (Tang et al.) reported in 2008 that “A qualitative review of the studies found a consistent and strong association between the exposure to fluoride and low IQ.” (Biological Trace Element Research) (2)

    In 2006, the U.S. National Research Council’s (NRC) expert fluoride panel reviewed fluoride toxicology and concluded, “It’s apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.” And, “Fluorides also increase the production of free radicals in the brain through several different biological pathways. These changes have a bearing on the possibility that fluorides act to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.” (3)

    On April 12, 2010, Time magazine listed fluoride as one of the “Top Ten Common Household Toxins” and described fluoride as both “neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed.” (4)

    Phyllis Mullenix, Ph.D., was the first U.S. scientist to find evidence that fluoride damages the brain. She published her animal study in a respected peer-reviewed scientific journal in 1995 (5) and then was fired for doing so.(6)

    Vyvyan Howard, M.D., Ph.D., a prominent fetal toxicologist and past-President of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, said that current brain/fluoride research convinces him that we should stop water fluoridation.

    Many communities have stopped or rejected fluoridation in the past several years – the most recent is Fairbanks, Alaska. This year, seven New York City Council Members co-sponsored legislation to stop fluoridation in NYC.

    I think just about all public drinking water in the US is fluoridated.

    Community Water Fluoridation - Oral Health

    WHO | Global consultation on oral health through fluoride

    you just don't know who to believe, either way not much anything we could do about it.

    I guess those of us who've been railing about this for years have a small bit of bitter vindication. Tin foil hats no longer required.

    Anyone else ever get those weekly flouride treatments they used to give us kids back in the day in school? The ones where you would get a mouthpiece filled with gel, and you would put in in your mouth for, I think it was a min.?

    But, In their defense, they did tell us not to swallow any gel!

    And look,

    Hawaii's water isn't fluoridated, why are there so many dummies here?
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    So an organization named New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. found a study showing that fluoride is bad for you?

    That's like Microsoft finding studies that show that Windows is more secure than Linux and more user friendly than Mac OS X.

    Who is Valdez-Jimenez? How was the study done? Is this the only study that shows it? Who funded the study? NYSCOF?

    I'm not saying that fluoride isn't harmful, but to take this new article at fact based on it alone is naive.

    sodium fluoride (NaF) is a main ingredient in rodent poison, it surely can't increase the health status based on that simple fact.

    if you just think about the fact that fluoride is supposedly added to the entire US water supply to help decrease dental decay, etc. why is that? why so much effort to save the teeth but nothing else about the health of the general population, it doesn't make any sense at all.

    Source.

    A 1992 census found that, for U.S. public water supply systems reporting the type of compound used, 63% of the population received water fluoridated with fluorosilicic acid, 28% with sodium fluorosilicate, and 9% with sodium fluoride.
    Also.

    The U.S. specifies the optimal level of fluoride to range from 0.7 to 1.2 mg/L (milligrams per liter, equivalent to parts per million)
