The world’s oldest and most-prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin. This puts fluoride in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.
A neurotoxin is a substance that inhibits the functions of neurons.
Basically, neurons are cells that transport different types of information throughout the brain and allow it to function properly.
Researchers noted that brain disorders now affect 10%-15% of all births. And now, prevalence rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are increasing every year.
Brain disorders — including ADHD, dyslexia and other cognitive impairments — now affect millions of children worldwide. It’s being called a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”
For The Lancet to classify fluoride as a neurotoxin is a big deal. This announcement really caught my attention. (See my 2014 article about fluoride: “Is the Government Poisoning You?”)
Still to this day, fluoride does not have FDA approval. That means it is considered by the FDA as an “unapproved drug.”
I have written about the dangers of fluoride in the past. There is absolutely no evidence that it reduces tooth decay, which is the reason many cities claim as to why they are adding fluoride to their water, thus making it poisonous. Even home water filtration systems, except reverse osmosis, don’t filter out fluoride.
It has been estimated that the fluoride most children get from tooth paste and drinking water each far exceeds the safe level designated by government.
Will you write the mayor of your city to take the fluoride out of the water? It would save the city lots of money, and make you and your children much healthier. If you don’t write, who will?
