Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ - Published in Federal Gov't Journal

It is not so unbelievable that Portland City Council wants to fluoridate our water. If Nestle gets the go ahead (which they will because of the money trail) with their plans to set up a water bottling plant in the Gorge then they will sell much more bottled water to city dwellers who want to avoid the fluoride.

Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ - Published in Federal Gov't Journal

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Harvard University researchers' review of fluoride/brain studies concludes "our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children's neurodevelopment." It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences' journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)

"The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas," write Choi et al.

Further, the EPA says fluoride is a chemical "with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity."

Fluoride (fluosilicic acid) is added to US water supplies at approximately 1 part per million attempting to reduce tooth decay.

Water was the only fluoride source in the studies reviewed and was based on high water fluoride levels. However, they point out research by Ding (2011) suggested that low water fluoride levels had significant negative associations with children's intelligence.

Choi et al. write, "Although fluoride may cause neurotoxicity in animal models and acute fluoride poisoning causes neurotoxicity in adults, very little is known of its effects on children's neurodevelopment. They recommend more brain/fluoride research on children and at individual-level doses.

"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.

After reviewing fluoride toxicological data, the NRC reported in 2006, "It's apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain."

Choi's team writes, "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."

Fluoride accumulates in the body. Even low doses are harmful to babies, the thyroid, kidney patients and heavy water-drinkers. There are even doubts about fluoridation's effectiveness (2). New York City Legislation is pending to stop fluoridation. Many communities have already stopped.

Infant formula when mixed with fluoridated water delivers 100-200 times more fluoride than breastmilk. (3)

Hey Portland! We scared the sh*t out of the government powers that be and got national attention on March 19, 2006 with 10,000+ strong marching. Notice how DHS did operation "Top Off" and got in at the airport, how FBI did the Christmas Tree Lighting Terrorist Scare and put a new FBI center in Portland, how Portland State University keeps hosting neocon war criminals as speakers to brainwash students, how Sam Adams and other mayors collaborated with DHS to crush Occupy Portland, how the Portland Police department kills and asks questions later, and now Randy Leonard, Amanda Fritz(?), and others in city government want to make us all docile obedient goose stepping sheeple by pumping toxic waste from the nuclear, mining, and chemical industries into our water...now they're pissing in our ears and telling us it's rainwater well, watch this, so you can see how later they will soon be pissing industrial waste in our drinking water...wait I just heard that city council is trying to approve hydro-fracking too! I think I will start catching rainwater to drink - oh no, now city council wants to ban catching rainwater!!


Sign the petition and referendum and vote these military industrial complex paid politicians out!
