Brain Development and Fluoride

If you want to listen to another podcast I did called Hypothyroidism and Fluoride it may give you a good primer (on fluoride) before we proceed. The US government added fluoride to the municipal water to prevent cavities for children in 1951. The research doesn’t support the benefit of preventing cavities; there are so many risks (that) many countries are phasing it out, (and) America is an exception. What I want you to know about fluoride is that it interferes with brain development.


The link between brain development and fluoride…

I recently listened to Dr. Kathleen Thiessen – she is one of the experts on fluoride in the world; she has done a lot of research; she says there is no study on fluoridation safety. With the neuro toxins there is no safe level where it is OK, especially with a child with a developing brain; a little exposure every day is a problem, even if you are not against fluoridation – the amount is not controlled. In water it is impossible to control the dose. You have to consider that we don’t need to supplement with fluoride like Vitamin D.

Another problem that is a big red flag with me is that it crosses the placenta. When the woman who is pregnant drinks tap water she is getting a lot of exposure to fluoride that raises the risk for the developing brain. The Iowa Study, the largest in the US tracking exposes to fluoride concludes that we are massively overdosing (children) with fluoride: children receive up to 100 times the recommended level. 30% of 1 year-old and 47% of 2-3 year-old children ingest more than recommended dose of it on daily basis.

Recent report from CDC: 41% of children in the US have dental fluorosis. African American children: 58% vs 36% Caucasian children- this happens due to excessive fluoride during tooth development. 22mln US children have dental fluorosis. A landmark study from Harvard from 2015, published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology Journal showed association of lifetime exposure to fluoride and cognintive functions in Chinese children: a pilot study. Dental fluorosis in a child correlates directly with a lower IQ and brain development. The more exposure to fluoride in water, the more dental fluorosis. It is similar to mercury, lead and flame retardants, and it affects the short term and working memory.

My recommendation? Find toothpaste without fluoride, and use a water filter. Take care of your children…and I will talk with you soon!
