New Statistics: Fluoridation May Not Prevent Cavities


Earlier this year, even National Geographic stopped so low as to suggest anyone who questions water fluoridation is a conspiracy theorist.1 Yet, just last year Lancet Neurology released a study, authored by a Harvard doctor, among others, that classified fluoride as a developmental neurotoxin.Read more….

EXCERPT from Newsweek:

You might think, then, that fluoridated water’s efficacy as a cavity preventer would be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. But new research suggests that assumption is dramatically misguided; while using fluoridated toothpaste has been proven to be good for oral health, consuming fluoridated water may have no positive impact.

The Cochrane Collaboration, a group of doctors and researchers known for their comprehensive reviews—which are widely regarded as the gold standard of scientific rigor in assessing effectiveness of public health policies—recently set out to find out if fluoridation reduces cavities. They reviewed every study done on fluoridation that they could find, and then winnowed down the collection to only the most comprehensive, well-designed and reliable papers. Then they analyzed these studies’ results, and published their conclusion in a review earlier this month.

Fluoride Victory Updates (2015)



Latest Fluoride-Free Victories 

  • Oneida, New YorkOn Tuesday the Common Council voted 5-1 to reject fluoridation for the third time since 2002.  For months, the council has held public hearings and debates on fluoridation, listening to an array of experts on both sides of the issue, including FAN’s Dr. Paul Connett and NY Dept. of Health’s Dental Representative Jay Kumar, who is a long-time promoter of fluoridation.  Despite an aggressive lobbying campaign by the fluoride-lobby, the council and community couldn’t be ticked into believing that the practice was safe, effective, or necessary.
  • Kingsville, Ontario—This Canadian City Council passed a motion last week reaffirming its stance in opposition to fluoridation.  The issue was raised by the former Deputy Mayor, who urged the council to pass the motion to send a message to the provincial government, which is considering mandating the practice.   The community of Lakeshore, Ontario also recently publicized their opposition to fluoridation, and will be sending a letter to provincial officials opposing a mandate.

Luke showed that fluoride accumulates on the calcified deposits in the human pineal gland and lowers melatonin production in animals. No health agency in any fluoridating country has attempted to repeat Luke’s work despite the fact that melatonin levels have been related to many health problems. For example, Autistic children produce no melatonin.

Lancet Journal: Classifies Fluoride as a neurotoxin


“a report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin, in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.”

Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity


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.   Lancet Abstract

Second Look Website provides scientific and medical information on fluoride poisoning and related health effects in individuals. In recent years, they have been concentrating efforts on their developing program, The Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative (FTRC). This unique program seeks to help individuals suffering from fluoride illness, both chronic and acute.. Go to the FTRC WebCenter for more information about fluoride poisoning and suggestions for how you can help yourself.

This website has started a very special FTRC project: an online listing of fluorinated pharmaceuticals.

Breaking News CNN: BRAINS IN DANGER (Methlymercury, Fluoride) ADA recommends fluoride for six month old babies

To examine fluoride, which is in tap water in many areas, Landrigan and Grandjean looked at an analysis of 27 studies of children, mostly in China, who were exposed to fluoride in drinking water at high concentrations. The data, they said, suggests a decline on average of about seven IQ points.

The two have been studying industrial chemicals for about 30 years. In 2006, they published data identifying five chemicals as neurotoxicants — substances that impact brain development and can cause a number of neurodevelopmental disabilities including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, dyslexia and other cognitive damage, they said.

Those five are lead, methylmercury, arsenic, polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, and toluene.

  • Two scientists are sounding the alarm over chemicals and brain development
  • They are calling for a worldwide overhaul of the regulatory process
  • The American Chemical Council says the review is “highly flawed”
  • The researchers say impacts could include ADHD and dyslexia   Read more…

Why ethyl mercury — the kind found in vaccines that the pro vaccine apologists say is safe — is actually many times more toxic than methyl mercury which pro vaccine apologists says is unsafe.

American Dental Association recommends using fluoride to poison infants as young as six months old.

They are now calling on parents to begin using fluoride-filled toothpastes on their toddlers by the age of six months, according to a press release from the organization.
