Harvard Study Shows Fluoride Lowers IQ in Children

According to a Harvard study published online in Environmental Health Perspectives in 2012, fluoride adversely affects child neurodevelopment. The study reported a significant difference in the IQs of children in high and low fluoride areas. A July 2012 press release by the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF) quoted NYSCOF President Paul Beeber as saying, “It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups. 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.”
