MSM Finally Comes Clean on Harmful Effects of Mass Fluoridation - Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ
Imagine for a moment, finding out that you've been drugged for your entire life without your consent—that a vital resource which you and every other human being needs in order to survive was consistently and deliberately laced with this chemical. Imagine that no one bothered to keep track of the dosage or to limit the consumption of anyone ingesting this additive. Further, imagine that those who applied the drug deliberately avoided educating the people about the health risks involved with the mass consumption of this drug.
In such a situation, in order to compensate for this travesty, those responsible for this mass drugging would likely make public claims that these chemicals are "good for you" and that they "pose no detrimental effects." These parties may even hand out hollow propaganda from official sources attempting to substantiate the questionable claims made by those who added the chemicals to the people's vital resources.
As we know, this is a true story, and that mass municipal water fluoridation is still taking place as you read these words.
Sodium fluoride is a known neurotoxin that has been a normalized additive in municipal water supplies in the United States and numerous other countries. For decades, this toxin has been sold to citizens as having "no detrimental effects" and having the ability to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Yet why is a known neurotoxin regularly added to drinking water in a developed society when there are plenty of other ways to strengthen teeth?
This is one of many questions that deserve real answers.

We have now become aware that—despite the long-running government propaganda—sodium fluoride does, in fact, cause numerous health issues in humans. The entire time during which the questionable scientific doctrine that fluoride posed no risk to human health was preached, we the people may have actually been decreasing in our IQ and brain function to the point where the bad science and questionable government practices actually appeared to make sense.
In fact, according to a recent report by Harvard University, fluoride has a consistent ability to decrease the IQs of children to concerning degrees. Here is the Huffington Post with the story.

Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ
At least when it comes to topical application, you have a choice. You can easily buy fluoride-free toothpaste and mouthwash. But you’re stuck with whatever your community puts in the water, and it’s very difficult to filter out of your water once it’s added.
A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.
In a 32-page report that can be downloaded free of charge from Environmental Health Perspectives, the researchers said:
A recent report from the U.S. National Research Council (NRC 2006) concluded that adverse effects of high fluoride concentrations in drinking water may be of concern and that additional research is warranted. Fluoride may cause neurotoxicity in laboratory animals, including effects on learning and memory ...
To summarize the available literature, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies on increased fluoride exposure in drinking water and neurodevelopmental delays. We specifically targeted studies carried out in rural China that have not been widely disseminated, thus complementing the studies that have been included in previous reviews and risk assessment reports ...
Findings from our meta-analyses of 27 studies published over 22 years suggest an inverse association between high fluoride exposure and children’s intelligence ... The results suggest that fluoride may be a developmental neurotoxicant that affects brain development at exposures much below those that can cause toxicity in adults ...
Serum-fluoride concentrations associated with high intakes from drinking-water may exceed 1 mg/L, or 50 Smol/L, thus more than 1000-times the levels of some other neurotoxicants that cause neurodevelopmental damage. Supporting the plausibility of our findings, rats exposed to 1 ppm (50 Smol/L) of water-fluoride for one year showed morphological alterations in the brain and increased levels of aluminum in brain tissue compared with controls ...
In conclusion, our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment. Future research should formally evaluate dose-response relations based on individual-level measures of exposure over time, including more precise prenatal exposure assessment and more extensive standardized measures of neurobehavioral performance, in addition to improving assessment and control of potential confounders.
Studies Have Repeatedly Linked Fluoride to Reduced IQ and Brain Damage
There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is still added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies.
It amazes me that the medical (and dental) communities are so stubbornly resistant to connect the dots when it comes to the skyrocketing increase of cognitive decline in adults and behavioral issues in children (ADD, ADHD, depression and learning disabilities of all kinds). In fact, there have been more than 23 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage. Fluoride can also increase manganese absorption, compounding problems, since manganese in drinking water has also been linked to lower IQ in children.
Reported effects of fluoride on your brain include:
• Reduction in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors
• Damage to your hippocampus
• Formation of beta-amyloid plaques (the classic brain abnormality in Alzheimer’s disease)
• Reduction in lipid content
• Damage to purkinje cells
• Exacerbation of lesions induced by iodine deficiency
• Impaired antioxidant defense systems
• Increased uptake of aluminum
• Accumulation of fluoride in your pineal gland
Six Facts You Need to Know About Water Fluoridation
Harmful Effects Have Been Known for Half a Century
What is perhaps most surprising is that the harmful effects of fluoride have been known by conventional medical organizations for over half a century. For example, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) stated in their Sept. 18, 1943 issue that fluorides are general protoplasmic poisons that change the permeability of the cell membrane by certain enzymes. And, an editorial published in the Journal of the American Dental Association on Oct. 1, 1944, stated:
Drinking water containing as little as 1.2 ppm fluoride will cause developmental disturbances. We cannot run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances. The potentialities for harm outweigh those for good.
Part of the problem is that it’s an accumulative toxin that, over time, can lead to significant health problems that are not immediately linked to fluoride over-exposure. In a 2005 paper entitled [url=https://www.litalee.com/documents/Fluoride - A Modern Toxic Waste.pdf]“Fluoride — A Modern Toxic Waste,”[/url] Lita Lee, Ph.D. writes:
Yiamouyiannis’ book, Fluoride, The Aging Factor, documents the cumulative effect of tissue damage by fluoride, commonly seen as aging (collagen damage), skin rashes and acne, gastrointestinal disorders, and many other conditions, including osteoporosis. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and the Safe Water Foundation reported that 30,000 to 50,000 excess deaths occur in the United States each year in areas in which the water contains only one ppm fluoride ...
Fluoride suppresses the immune system: Fluoride inhibits the movement of white blood cells by 70 percent, thereby decreasing their ability to reach their target. Yiamouyiannis cites 15 references in his pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation, that document immunosuppressive effects of as little as 10 percent of the amount of fluoride used in fluoridated water ... Immunosuppressive effects run the gamut, from a cold that won’t go away to increased risk of cancer and other infectious diseases.
Studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including:
• Increased lead absorption
• Disrupts synthesis of collagen
• Hyperactivity and/or lethargy
• Muscle disorders
• Thyroid disease
• Bone fractures
• Lowered thyroid function
• Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)
• Inactivates 62 enzymes and inhibits more than 100
• Inhibited formation of antibodies
• Genetic damage and cell death
• Increased tumor and cancer rate
• Disrupted immune system
• Damaged sperm and increased infertility

Though the Huffington Post can produce some questionable information at times, this report appears to be sound. The embarrassing admissions of the establishment of gross neglect of scientific research and mass endangerment of public health is not something the corporate media reports due to the embarrassment which their various business partners might suffer. So when these failures are reported to such an excessive extent, we can typically be sure that the disclosure is largely accurate. In addition, the fact that a university as prestigious as Harvard--along with numerous other reputable science labs--completed this collection of studies further suggests that the report is largely accurate in its detail.

Along with these observations, we may find it interesting to see that the above scientific studies were completed around 2006. So then why did Huffington Post wait until 2013 to report the facts? A DuckDuckGo search reveals that very few mainstream media sources ever bothered to report about these hazardous effects of water fluoridation. One post from CNN was published in 2012, but has since been deleted. For the most part, this vital information was only reported by alternative health websites. But then, if corporate media does not consider it a priority to inform the public about major health hazards which have been normalized by official establishments, where do their priorities lie?
This revelation in comparison to the lax way in which the MSM sat on the report for upward of a decade shows us that, to a large extent, corporate media cannot be trusted to be prompt in matters of health.
Proof of Propaganda
Take a look at the screen capture of the CDC website below. This site features of an official report which cited no scientific evidence, made no accurate references to the point it presented, and yet declared via official channels that sodium fluoride had no adverse effects on human beings.
Not only did original government reports ignore data from the well-known Material Safety Data Sheet, but they dismissed the actual records of the EPA which clearly state the dangers of fluoride exposure to workers in the logging and agricultural industries.
Let's recall the point made earlier that sodium fluoride is a drug by definition. This drug has been regularly added to municipal water supplies since the early 1940s, and yet no scientific study was ever completed to test what the long-term effect of ingesting this drug might be. This irresponsible standard has been normalized in society, and demonstrates the dangerous habit of modern establishment of making drastic, broad-spectrum changes to entire countries without a shred of proof of the safety of said changes.
When we see the facts from the material safety data sheet about sodium fluoride, we get a slightly different story than that which the CDC attempts to sell.
Though it is true that these effects may only apply to the purified form of this chemical, it is clear that the CDC page is largely (and deliberately) detached from the whole reality of the hazards of fluoride.
When we compare the half-truths sold by the CDC to the actual data on the hazards of sodium fluoride, we seem to receive a contradictory story. If the CDC were competent in their ability to thoroughly evaluate the potential risks of fluoride ingestion, why were numerous peer-reviews studies required to pick up the slack of the CDC? Why did the American population have to wait until 2006 to learn about the clear hazards of ingesting this neurotoxin for a lifetime?

Perhaps a more vital question would be, "What else did the CDC miss in their apparently poor and incomplete assessment of sodium fluoride?" At this point, it seems clear that neither the CDC nor any other organization which initially boasted wondrous claims about fluoride have any business doing so, seeing that the initial science performed to make such claims has been proven to be grossly inadequate.
The responsible action for the CDC and municipal water companies would be to scale back and even eliminate their use of fluoride in drinking water. There are many ways to strengthen teeth without decreasing brain function, muscular function, bone health, fertility, and IQs en mass. There is also no ethical justification for adding any drug to a water supply without the consent of all of those who would be affected by it. However, these companies do not appear to consider ethics or scientific results to be very high priorities.
Municipal water supplies are still fluoridated to this day. On one hand, the fluoride acts to kill microbial contaminants and prevent them from causing more acute health issues in citizens. On the other hand, the anti-microbial attribute of fluoride may serve as yet another sign that humans should not be consuming it in unmeasured doses.
There are numerous ways to purify water supplies (the simplest of which is good old-fashioned sunlight, i.e., treatment via ultraviolet light). There are also plenty of ways to keep teeth healthy and resistant to decay. (In fact, a number of scientific studies have now even cast doubt on fluoride's ability to prevent this decay.) This may cause us to question the true reason why this primitive method of water treatment has been sustained for so long despite the clear risks of neurological, biological, and physiological debilitation.
According to sources, there has been a significant initiative which is designed to drastically scale back the use of toxins such as sodium fluoride in drinking water. However, at this point, the chemical is still in use for the most part.
Considering the dire crisis of health and wellness the U.S. is currently facing--despite the supposition that we live in the height of human civilization--we might realize that fact that our advanced civilization uses actual poison as medicine. Consequently, it does not appear that we are very advanced when it comes to sensible and productive means of self-care.
Perhaps there already exists a feasible method of water purification for the millions of citizens who depend upon municipal water supplies. If this is the case, it may be that some level of corporate manipulation has prevented municipal water from implemented a more healthy solution. This may explain the reason the corporate media waited five to six years before choosing to reveal the health risks of fluoride.
Perhaps we will find the answers to these questions as well as lasting solutions to the need for modern water purification. Hopefully these solutions already exist and those developing them are well qualified to undertake the task responsibly. Further, it is hopeful that those developing and reporting upon these solutions are not on fluoride while doing so.
