Fluoridated Water Linked to 30% More Hypothyroidism

They're all at a higher risk of hypothyroidism and worse. When the government added fluoride to our drinking water it was hailed as one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century. It was sold to the public as the end to dental cavities. Today municipalities in the United States add fluoride to the water supplies of 67% of Americans or nearly 211 million people.

[i] But new research shows drinking fluoridated water greatly increases your risk of developing an underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism or low thyroid function causes fatigue, weight gain, constipation, aches, dry skin, thinning hair, and intolerance to cold. The new study from England finds that fluoride added to drinking water is associated with a 30% higher rate of diagnosed hypothyroidism.

Actual rates of under-active thyroid may be much higher since this study was limited to people who were diagnosed. That's really bad news for Americans. Dr. 10 Important Facts About Fluoride You Need to Know. By Dr.

10 Important Facts About Fluoride You Need to Know

Mercola If you live in the US, where more than two-thirds of Americans receive fluoridated water, you may simply assume that it's always been that way. But this is not so. Water fluoridation began in 1945, despite the fact that fluoride is not an essential nutrient. Quite the contrary, the fluoride added to drinking water is a toxic byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industry. 10 Facts About Fluoride 1. More people drink fluoridated water in the US alone than in the rest of the world combined. Why Water Fluoridation Continues, Despite Its Ill Effects. By Dr.

Why Water Fluoridation Continues, Despite Its Ill Effects

Mercola A majority of Americans consume an "invisible" drug on a daily basis—a drug so harmful it's been proven to cause serious health issues, including damage to your bones, teeth, kidneys, thyroid, and pineal gland. Dozens of studies have shown it reduces IQ in children and damages your brain. Despite that, this drug is so pervasive that over 40 percent of American teens between the ages of 12 and 15 show visible signs of overexposure.1 The drug in question is fluoride—which is added to a majority of municipal water supplies across the US.

It's also found in a number of other products, most notably toothpaste and other dental treatments. Drugging Without Consent Many fail to realize that fluoride is indeed a drug, and as such it is grossly inappropriate for it to be indiscriminately added to water supplies, as there's no way to control the dose.

Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children's IQ

Mercola 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. "A recent report from the U.S. 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.

Findings from our meta-analyses of 27 studies published over 22 years suggest an inverse association between high fluoride exposure and children's intelligence... No Naturally Occurring Fluoride Is Added To Drinking Water – See What’s Really Added. The resistance against water fluoridation might be a different story if the naturally occurring element of fluoride was added to our water.

No Naturally Occurring Fluoride Is Added To Drinking Water – See What’s Really Added

Fluoride is found in all natural waters, levels can be very high in groundwater, depending on a number of factors, such as the types of rocks and minerals of that region. Drinking water is the largest fluoride source. Our tap water, on the other hand, is littered with hydrofluorosilicic Acid, a toxic industrial waste by-product that governments have been adding to our drinking water for over sixty years. Again, we’re not talking about the natural element of fluoride here, we are talking about industrial toxic waste. What Exactly Are We Drinking? So what exactly are we drinking? For example, in the Phosphate Mining & Production Industry, much of the hydrofluorosilicic acid occurs from strip-mined rock. Against Environmental Regulations Industrial practices produce millions and millions of gallons of this liquid hazardous waste.
