There has been a huge interest and demand in removing industrial sodium fluoride from water all over the world, since it has been proven that this substance is actually harmful.
The most prestigious and established medical journal, The Lancet, also marked fluoride as a neurotoxin. This regards arsenic, lead and mercury as well.
This news were first introduced by author Stefan Smyle and exposed on the Facebook page Occupy Food. Here the link was related to the report published in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, in the March 2014 edition. The authors of this report are Dr. Phillippe Grandjean and Philip J. Landrigan, MD.
Industrial Chemicals Identification
The report distinguishes five similar industrial chemicals and places them into the developmental neurotoxicants group. Those are: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene.
Recently, another six neurotoxicants have been identified as well: manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers.
According to the reporters, there are more neurotoxicants that are not discovered yet.
ADHD, Dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments
The authors proposed a new approach and claimed that “untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.”
The report also claims that neurodevelopmental disabilities are affecting plenty of children worldwide, and some of them are attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive issues, which are known to cause a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”
The report further continues: “To coordinate these efforts and to accelerate translation of science into prevention, we propose the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse.”
Highly fluoridated water has been confirmed to cause lower IQ in people who drink it, unlike non-fluoridated water.
Fluoride also linked to Cancers
Cancer is another thing that can happen as a result of drinking water with sodium fluoride in it. This substance is artificially added to drinking water supplies. Also, it is used by dentists in order to support dental health.
The largest fluoride water supplies at the moment are located in North America. As for the other countries, especially the European ones, this water has been banned from use.
