JAMA study finds that drinking fluoridated water causes brain damage in children

New research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has found that drinking fluoridated water during pregnancy is a surefire way to induce brain damage and lowered IQ in children.

The first study of its kind to evaluate the impacts of water fluoridation at the current “optimal” level of 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per one liter (mg/l) of drinking water, as per the United States Public Health Service, the paper assessed 601 Canadian mothers and their child pairs, looking at how concentrations of fluoride in expectant mothers’ urine samples throughout their pregnancies correlated to health abnormalities in their children.

Between the ages of three and four, all of the children born from the evaluated mothers had their IQs tested, and the results were compared to the amounts of fluoride that their mothers had consumed through beverage intake throughout their pregnancies.

What the researchers found is that, for every additional 1 mg/l of fluoride in a mother’s urine, there was a corresponding 4.5-point drop in the IQ of her male offspring. Interestingly, a similar correlation was not detected in female offspring, suggesting that fluoride is especially toxic to young boys and their normal development.

However, regardless of the gender of the mothers’ children, it was discovered that, overall, for every 1 mg/l increase in fluoride intake by a mother, there was a corresponding 3.7-point decrease in a child’s IQ – suggesting that all children, either male or female, are harmed by exposure to what the government claims are “optimal” levels of fluoride in drinking water.

“At a population level, that’s a big shift,” says study author Christine Till, who works as an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at York University in Toronto.

Fluoride lobby discounts findings, says parents and children should still drink fluoridated water to “prevent cavities”

Just to be sure that their results were as accurate as possible, Till and her team accounted for outside factors such as income, education, and exposure to other toxic elements such as lead, mercury, manganese, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and arsenic. And they still determined in the end that fluoride is, in fact, a neurotoxic poison that shouldn’t be added to drinking water.

But the fluoride lobby has been quick to denounce these powerful findings, pointing to the fact that boys are harmed more than girls by fluoride as “problematic” in terms of changing the existing fluoridation policies throughout America.

Dr. Aparna Bole, chairwoman of the pro-fluoride American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Environmental Health, arrogantly and patronizingly declared that the findings are “difficult to interpret,” and that Americans should continue gulping down fluoridated water to “prevent cavities.”
