Did you know?
99% of western continental Europe has rejected, banned, or stopped fluoridation due to environmental, health, legal, or ethical concerns.
Only about 5% of the world population is fluoridated and more than 50% of these people live in North America (1).
The Danish Minister of Environment recommended against fluoridation in 1977 because “no adequate studies had been carried out on its long-term effects on human organ systems other than teeth and because not enough studies had been done on the effects of fluoride discharges on freshwater ecosystems.”
And now recent research has proven it to be a powerful neurotoxin and possible carcinogen.
Fluoride is a popular ingredient in dental products and in dental clinic services (2).
But this ingredient isn’t necessary for dental health; it doesn’t help remineralize your teeth and you there are plenty of ways to kill bad oral bacteria without exposing yourself to harmful ingredients.
Fluoride As A Neurotoxin
The Lancet, a highly regarded scientific journal is the first to acknowledge fluoride as a neurotoxin (3). Other known neurotoxins include arsenic, lead and mercury.
Neurotoxins inhibit, damage or destroy the tissues of the nervous system. Fluoride specifically targets hippocampal neurons (4).
The hippocampus is the region of your brain that regulates memory, emotions and the functions of the autonomic nervous system.
This region is the earliest and most affected brain region in Alzheimer’s sufferers. Atrophy of the hippocampus is also associated with depression and schizophrenia.
Fluoride can always affect the overall brain, especially in children. An NIH-funded Harvard study concluded that:
“children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas” (5).
Development Effects Of Fluoride
Fluoride readily crosses the placenta (6) and may affect the infant brain, which is more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants (7).
Exposure to fluoride in the womb may lead to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments in children.
Although more research must be done, pregnant women are strongly suggested to avoid consuming fluoride as it may cause permanent damage to their baby’s brain.
Fluoride: A Carcinogen?
Bones are the principal site of fluoride accumulation within the body. That’s why Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) seems to be prevalent in communities with high fluoride consumption.
Fluroide promotes osteoclastogenesis, a process by which osteoclasts break down bone tissue (8). This process is necessary to repair and remodel bones. However, some people are genetically predisposed to experience these effects negatively. Meaning that their bones are broken down faster than they can be repaired.
Additionally, fluoride can affect gene expression, cell stress, and even cell death. Research conducted by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill concluded that:
“Excessive systemic exposure to fluorides can lead to disturbances of bone homeostasis (skeletal fluorosis) and enamel development (dental/enamel fluorosis).”.
That’s not all, a study conducted by the University of Tokyo found a possible link between fluoridated water and cancer.
Using data from a group of 21.8 million Americans diagnosed with cancer, the study examined 36 regions in the body.
They found that 2 out of 3 sites showed a positive correlation between cancer and fluoridated water.
These included the oral cavity and pharynx, colon and rectum, hepato-biliary and urinary organs (9).
