Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ

Good thing they put fluoride in the water supply all over the United States of America, including here in Boulder where I live.  In a study published July 20 online in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ journal, the researchers found, amongst other things 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.

Another key quote from the Reuters article on the subject:

“It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.  “Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It’s time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere, says Beeber.”

Nothing to see here folks.  Keep watching American Idol.  Stay dumb and obedient little sheeple.  The government wants your teeth to be shiny and clean because they love you.
