According to a recent press release, recent fluoride neurotoxicology research is reinforcing the potential dangers of fluoridation, including its negative effects on child brain development. Fluoride’s ability to potentially cause damage to the brain is among the most active areas of fluoride research today.
The perception that fluoride is primarily a developmental neurotoxicant means that fluoride— an item such as lead, mercury, and arsenic — may cause adverse effects on the development of children’s brains at concentrations far below that of adults. As environmental contaminants affect brain growth, children are at risk of cognitive deficits, learning disabilities, ADHD, autism and other conditions that may affect them for the rest of their lives.
The press release provides a link to more than 400 studies showing a potential link between fluoride and its effects on the brain.
