Dr. Roman wanted to share this story from this page as this week’s important subject. Study Finds That Flouride Lowers IQ. Today over at the Blog of Dr. Mercola who has made significant milestones in his mission to bring people practical solutions to their health problems. Who is a New York Times Best Selling Author, Dr. Mercola was also voted the 2009 Ultimate Wellness Game Changer by the Huffington Post, and has been featured in TIME magazine, LA Times, CNN, Fox News, ABC News, Today Show, CBS’s Washington Unplugged with Sharyl Attkisson, and other major media resources.
The CDC wants us to believe it’s safe. But 24 studies have reported an association between this drink and reduced IQ in children – in fact, some children could have their mental development impaired by drinking as little as one glass on a daily basis.
Additionally, many pet foods contqin “meal” which contains many toxic materials for pets including flouride in high concentrations.
This information has been know and debated since 1995, when neurotoxicologist and former Director of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix published research showing that fluoride built up in the brains of animals when exposed to moderate levels. Damage to the brain occurred and the behavior patterns of the animals was adversely effected. Offspring of pregnant animals receiving relatively low doses of fluoride showed permanent effects to the brain which were seen as hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms). Young animals and adult animals given fluoride experienced the opposite effect — hypoactivity or sluggishness. The toxic effects of fluoride on the central nervous system was subsequently confirmed by previously-classified government research. Two new epidemiological studies which tend to confirm fluoride’s neurotoxic effects on the brain have shown that children exposed to higher levels of fluoride had lower IQs. Source: HolisticMed
