Water fluoridation in England linked to higher rates of underactive thyroid. Water fluoridation above a certain level is linked to 30 per cent higher than expected rates of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) in England, suggests research published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

Water fluoridation in England linked to higher rates of underactive thyroid

The findings prompt the researchers to call for a rethink of public health policy to fluoridate the water supply in a bid to protect the nation’s tooth health. In England, around 10 per cent of the population (6 million) live in areas with a naturally or artificially fluoridated water supply of 1 mg fluoride per litre of drinking water. The researchers looked at the 2012 levels of fluoride in the drinking water supply, using data provided by the Drinking Water Inspectorate for individual postcodes. And they looked at the national prevalence of underactive thyroid diagnosed by family doctors in England in 2012-13 and recorded in their national quality and incentive scheme (QOF) returns. Complete data were provided for 7935 general practices out of a total of 8020. Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Fluoride Action Network Australia.

The Lancet: Fluoride IS a Neurotoxin!

FrompovichActivist Post Who would have thought that it ever would have happened? Someone in mainstream medicine and peer reviewed literature and journals would publish the ‘unthinkable’: fluoride, the stuff they put into municipal water supplies supposedly to ‘protect’ teeth from cavities, is a neurotoxin. Wow! And congratulations to doctors Philippe Grandjean, MD, and Philip J Landrigan, MD, two researchers who published their findings in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 330 to 338, March 2014. [1] In the Summary published for their article, it states that Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency.

Probably nothing more can confirm that as scientific, demographic, and the horrible truth! In that book I also mention fluoride. Notes: Resource: Dr. Broadening Public Awareness on Fluoride. Pineal Gland. In the 1990s, a British scientist, Jennifer Luke, discovered that fluoride accumulates to strikingly high levels in the pineal gland.

Pineal Gland

(Luke 2001). The pineal gland is located between the two hemispheres of the brain and is responsible for the synthesis and secretion of the hormone melatonin. Melatonin maintains the body’s circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle), regulates the onset of puberty in females, and helps protect the body from cell damage caused by free radicals. While it is not yet known if fluoride accumulation affects pineal gland function, preliminary animal experiments found that fluoride reduced melatonin levels and shortened the time to puberty. Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children.

July 25, 2012 — For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain.

Impact of fluoride on neurological development in children

Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. 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. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted. The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012. * This sentence was updated on September 5, 2012. Read a September 2012 statement by the authors. Government Calls for Lower Fluoride Levels. ByMike BarrettJanuary 7th, 2011Updated 12/16/2012 at 7:06 pm The United States government finally acknowledged the harmful effects that fluoride has on the body, and recommends that water fluoridation levels be decreased nationwide.

Government Calls for Lower Fluoride Levels

Government recommends lowering fluoride levels in U.S. drinking water. The American Dental Association says the new recommended fluoride levels will reduce tooth decay. There has been an increase in a condition called fluorosis It causes spotting and streaking on children's teeth The ADA says the new levels will still reduce tooth decay but minimize fluorosis Fluoride was first added to U.S. drinking water in the 1940s.

How Dangerous Is Fluoride To Your Health?

It is a gas, never occurring in its free state. In microscopic amounts complexed with other minerals, it is often listed as a trace mineral, a nutrient for human nutrition. The fluoride added to 90% of drinking water is hydrofluoric acid which is a compound of fluorine that is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing.

Harvard study shows fluoridated water linked to decrease in child IQs Adan Salazar Infowars.com March 25, 2014 A governmental health authority is urging English cities to consider mass fluoridation of their water supplies in what they say will be a “safe and effective” way to increase public health.

Mass Fluoridation of England’s Drinking Water Recommended by Government Agency

Officials with Public Health England, a governmental entity purporting to be all about “helping people to stay healthy, and protecting them from threats to their health,” have cited figures they say indicate adding the industrial toxic waste chemical is not as bad as once perceived. “In fluoridated areas, there were 45% fewer children aged one to four admitted to hospital [for dental problems],” a BBC report on PHE’s study claims, adding, “Levels of general tooth decay were 15% lower for five-year-olds and 11% lower for 12-year-olds.”

“All infant formula, infant juices and virtually all beverages and foods contain fluoride,” reported Fluoride Alert.org concerning the study. There Are Drugs in Drinking Water. Now What? British Government Wants to Force People to Drink Fluoridated Water. The American Dental Association (ADA) and UK version of this agency, the British Dental Association (BDA), along with government agencies have long touted the benefits of fluoridating municipal water supplies to keep everyone’s teeth pearly white and without cavities, but what if you have no teeth?

British Government Wants to Force People to Drink Fluoridated Water

Truthfully, it doesn’t matter; fluoride is a toxic substance that shouldn’t be forced on the population, but even people without teeth are pushed to consume fluoride. Local officials are being asked by government agencies in the UK to fluoridate their water again, even though millions currently drink unfluoridated water. Only 6.1 million people in the UK currently drink fluoridated water, some of it being naturally fluoridated instead of forcibly tinkered with by adding sodium fluoride, a leftover from the fertilizer and mining industries. That amounts to only 10% of the entire population.
