For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. 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 substances impact on childrens 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
Yet New Zealand Authorities are challenging Councils that want to keep being fluoride free or remove fluoride from the water supply.
And isnt it a basic human right NOT to be mass medicated, even if some might think they are doing us a favour?
When the fluoridation of water began, there was little evidence for its long term safety (as for GMOs) and since then little attempt has been made
to monitor its health effects systematically.
Because there are so many unanswered health questions, fluoridation of water must be considered an ongoing experimental procedure, and as such it is
a violation of the Nuremberg Code, which forbids experimentation on humans without their informed consent. In Europe, nearly all countries have either
never fluoridated their water or have ceased doing so.
Yet the incidence of tooth decay has declined just as much as in those countries that practice fluoridation. This fascinating interview with Dr Paul
Connett, will raise alarm bells about many aspects of the mass medication of the population by fluoride and he challenges us to do something about
NOTE: This may be a repeat, but it has a NEW INTRODUCTION, covering what has happened in Hamilton over the last few months and why Hamiltonians would
collectively vote to mass medicate themselves with chemicals that slowly over time actually alter the bodies chemistry and make up.
