Recently, the movement for fluoride elimination of industrial sodium from the global supply of water grows. Moreover, there is a lot of evidence against this additive from a number of sources.
Incredibly, there is a report in The Lancet, that is, the oldest and most prestigious in the world medical journal, which has been officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin, and put in the same category mercury, lead and arsenic.
The author Stefan Smyle broke the news and the Facebook page Occupy Food spread, linking the report that was published in The Lancet Neurology, edition March 2014, Volume 13, Number 3, by Philip J. Landrigan , MD and Dr. Philippe Grandjean.
Many of these products are identified in water
There are 5 different industrial chemicals like that were identified as developmental neurotoxic :. Toluene, arsenic, polychlorinated biphenyls, methylmercury, and directed by a systematic review, as noted in the report’s summary
That’s not all, now, the summary goes on to state that six other developmental neurotoxic have also been identified as :. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, tetrachlorethylene, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, chlorpyrifos, fluorine and manganese
may lead to dyslexia, ADHD, and many other cognitive disorders
A strategy of global prevention is proposed by the authors in the Lancet report, explaining that untested chemicals should not assume that it is safe for brain development, and all chemicals that are now included, and all new chemicals have to be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.
In addition, they also note that currently there are millions of children around the world who are suffering from some neurodevelopmental disabilities, such as dyslexia, hyperactivity disorder attention deficit and other cognitive disorders, which are considered a pandemic developmental neurotoxicity.
also proposed the urgent formation of a new international exchange center to coordinate these efforts and accelerate the translation of science into prevention.
This report really match 2013 meta-analysis results from Harvard University funded by the National Institutes of Health, the conclusion of children living in areas with highly fluoridated water showed much lower IQ compared to children they live in areas with low fluoride up in their water supplies.
Fluoride is associated with cancer development
Sodium fluoride in drinking water has also been associated with the development of many cancers. But in fact, it is different than calcium fluoride naturally occurring, which usually is added to drinking water supplies and used by dentists and dental products postulating that is beneficial for dental health.
Today, it is the addition of fluoride to water supplies in most of the countries of North America. However, this practice is not commonly used, or completely banned in most European countries and in many other developed countries around the world.
