Fluoride Officially Listed as a Neurotoxin.

There has been a movement to remove industrial sodium fluoride from the world’s water supply that has been growing for years with evidence from several sources. A report from The Lancet, the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin that falls in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury. Author Stefan Smyle posted a link to the report published in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, in the March 2014 edition, by authors Dr. Phillippe Grandjean and Philip J. Landrigan, MD on the FB page Occupy Food.

Summary from the article

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, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants—manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered. To controladd 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. Click here to view the entire report.

Protect Your Family and Yourself from Fluoride in Your Drinking Water

This water filter is superior to others like Burky because you won’t have to buy a separate fluoride filter.
