Water fluoridation is widespread in the U.S, about 67% of the US population receives fluoridated water from the tap. Authorities added fluoride to drinking water “for the children” despite it being linked to health
problems such as hypoactive thyroid, dental fluorosis, and others. Even though studies have suggested that fluoride in drinking water showed no actual benefit, efforts to fluoridate drinking water continued. But problems with fluoride have continued to pile up, recently leading to the FDA to recommend lowering the maximum amount of fluoride in water from 4 mg/L to 0.7 mg/L. Now a new study in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet reveals that fluoride is actually a dangerous neurotoxin, one that could be causing permanent damage to the brains of children.
Harmful effects of fluoridation
Lower IQs in children Studies from China of children exposed to fluoride in their drinking water at an early age reveals that those children lost an average of seven IQ points – permanently. Research in the US shows that children’s cognitive development is impaired even by low concentrations (0.24 – 2.84 mg/L).
ADHD Data collected in the US as part of The National Survey of Children’s Health by the Centers for Disease Control shows that there is a strong link between ADHD and fluoridated water. Approximately 11% of children aged 4 – 17 have received a diagnosis of ADHD at some point in their lives, which makes ADHD a health epidemic. Research shows that infants are adversely affected at exposures as low as 0.5 mg/L, well below the EPA limit.
Hypothyroidism In the United Kingdom, research has shown that fluoride can cause hypothyroidism – an underactive thyroid – in adults. This condition readily leads to health problems such as obesity.
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism
- Extreme fatigue
- Cold intolerance
- Weight gain
It only takes 0.03 mg/L fluoride in your drinking water to impair thyroid function
In the British study, it was shown that fluoridation levels of 0.03 mg/L doubled the risk of hypothyroidism. Keep in mind, that the current legal limit for is 4 mg/L, that’s 133.333 times the amount shown to double your risk of hypothyroidism!
Fact: There is no scientific evidence to suggest that there is any safe level for fluoride in water
Alkaline water can help you detox from fluoride
Raising the pH of your urine will increase your kidney’s renal clearance of fluoride. Renal clearance measures the percentage of any given toxin in your blood that your kidneys will filter out. If you have a urine pH of 5.5, your kidneys will discharge only 5% of the fluoride in your bloodstream. But if you alkalize your urine to a pH of 7.6, then your kidneys will discharge 65% of the fluoride in your bloodstream. By drinking alkaline water every day, you’ll be able to detox your body from fluoride in the most gentle, natural way possible.
