Study: fluoridated water causes brain damage in children
Quote:A new study pre-published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives confirms that fluoridated water causes brain damage in children. The most recent among 23 others pertaining to fluoride and lowered IQ levels, the new study so strongly proves that fluoride is a dangerous, brain-destroying toxin that experts say it could be the one that finally ends water fluoridation.

"This is the 24th study that has found this association," explained Paul Connett, Ph.D., director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). "[B]ut this study is stronger than the rest because the authors have controlled for key confounding variables and in addition to correlating lowered IQ with levels of fluoride in the water, the authors found a correlation between lowered IQ and fluoride levels in children's blood."

For the study, researchers evaluated 512 children ages 8-13 in two Chinese villages, one village with higher than average fluoride levels and the other with lower than average fluoride levels. After accounting for external variables like lead exposure, iodine deficiency and other conditions that might affect brain health, the team still found that the number of higher intelligence children in the low fluoride community was 350 percent higher than the number in the high fluoride community.

"In this study we found a significant dose-response relation between fluoride level in serum and children's IQ," wrote the study authors.

Though there have been numerous studies over the years the identify fluoride as a neurotoxin, most mainstream medical professionals in the U.S. have ignored them and continue to support water fluoridation. But the evidence continues to mount, and sooner or later the medical community will have to come to grips with the truth about fluoride.

"This should be the study that finally ends water fluoridation," explained Tara Blank, Ph.D., Science and Health Officer at FAN. "Millions of American children are being exposed unnecessarily to this neurotoxin on a daily basis. Who in their right minds would risk lowering their child's intelligence in order to reduce a small amount of tooth decay, for which the evidence is very weak."

Information  RE: Study: fluoridated water causes brain damage in children Learn more: http://www.natu
The study referenced in this article is on IQ scores of 512 Chinese children (8-13) from two small villages I couldn't find on a quick map search. It was performed in 2003. It was submitted to the FDA in 2005 by the fluoride action network along with a smaller study and 2 other on mega-dose fluoride testing on rats all from China.

Here are some excerpts from the main EHP paper that was based on the 2003 Chinese study submitted by the Fluoride Action Network to the US EPA. It also cites selective reports in this 2008 collection of Chinese Studies done from 1991-2007. The EPA has had been in possession of this data for 5 years.

Xiang Q, Liang Y, Chen B 2010. Serum Fluoride Level and Children's Intelligence Quotient in Two Villages in China. Environ Health Perspect :-. doi:10.1289/ehp.1003171

Xiang Q, Liang Y, Chen L, Wang C, Chen B, Chen X, Zhou M. Effect of fluoride in drinking water on children’s intelligence. Fluoride 2003;36(2):84-94.

Despite a wide array of control variables I take issue with three significant factors that were overlooked with the studies' controls.

There was a collection of iodine deficiency and a random sampling was done on 86/512 children leaving a p-score of >0.28 or there is a greater than 28% probability that . Lead me to believe urinalysis was performed on only a small fraction of the test subjects (human beings).

Quote:Higher levels of lead and iodine deficiency are significant causes of mental impairment (Burgstahler 2003; National standard of P.R. China 1995; Carpenter 2005; Chen et al. 2005). To identify whether the blood lead and urinary iodine had significant relationship with children’s IQ or not in these two villages, children were randomly selected used random function in Excel 2000 (Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, USA)

RE: Study: fluoridated water causes brain damage in children
great, thanks for this. heard about these Chinese reports. I currently live in Ireland where fluoridation is still a common practice....for 45 years!!! its been 5 years since I arrived and never understood how can it be...and for so long. I'm determined to do something, to help at least in our community, our area....connect with others... this has to stop!

If anyone here from Ireland or anywhere with some ideas on where or how to go ahead with this please contact me.
