Fluoride is a Neurotoxin
So here comes the Fluoride debate, and we can go round and round on another one. We are called conspiracy theorists when we discuss fluoride with some. Again, the brainwashing of the masses has taken place for so long that it is hard to explain to someone who does not read, study, or even seem to care about these issues. We were all brought up to believe that the powers that be had our best interest in mind and would not let any harm come to us. Now here comes the information age! You have been lied to your entire life! Milk does not do a body good, and fluoride is a neurotoxin.
And yet another debate. Big business pours millions of dollars into studies to back their big profits. Do you think these studies are skewed or biased in any way? Who do you believe? Big Pharma wants you to believe in their multi-million dollar business and train all the doctors in their big-pharma backed universities to give you big-pharma backed information that might not be true. Do you think for yourself? Who can you trust? How do you gather your data?
Is it not better to err on the side of caution in a case that is as simple as buying a brand of water that is fluoride free?
Once fluoride crosses the blood-brain barrier, it causes degeneration to specific parts of the brain — the hippocampus, the neocortex, and the cerebellum. (10)
Neurodegenerative changes in different regions of
brain, spinal cord, and sciatic nerve of rats treated with sodium fluoride
It appears that fluoride in a concentration of 20 ppm extensively damages neurons in the brain, spinal cord and sciatic nerve of rats
leading to paralysis and brain dysfunction. Varner et al16 reported that the chronic administration of drinking water containing aluminum fluoride and sodium fluoride to rats resulted in distinctive morphological alteration in specific regions of the brain.

The consumption of fluoride-rich drinking-water results in serious health effects, ranging from dental fluorosis to crippling skeletal fluorosis, both effects being irreversible

Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants—manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.
In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children.
Neurodegenerative changes were observed in different regions of the brain (neocortex, hippocampus, cerebellum), spinal cord and sciatic nerve of a fluoride-exposed group under different magnifications
Harvard School of Public Health and China Medical University did a joint analysis of 27 studies on the effects of fluoride and found a strong correlation between fluoride and adverse effects on brain development.
Children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those living in low-fluoride areas.
Fluoride, especially when added to drinking water, nearly doubles the risk of developing hypothyroidism.
