This is not to convince you of anything, for fluoride is one of those deeply emotional issues that tend to divide us, regardless of the evidence. I only wish to motivate you to look into this issue for yourself. Don’t take anybody’s word for it, including mine.
Prenatal exposure to fluoride may lead to lower IQ later in child’s life, study suggests
“CNN (9/19, Kounang) reports on its website that a study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives that evaluated about 300 groups of children and mothers in Mexico found that higher “levels of prenatal fluoride exposure may be associated with lower cognitive function in children.” Researchers found children’s intelligence test scores dropped “for every 0.5 milligram-per-liter increase in fluoride exposure beyond 0.8 milligrams per liter found in urine.”
