Parents: Please Think Twice Before Allowing Your Children To Use Fluoride

Parents: Please Think Twice Before Allowing Your Children To Use Fluoride

Cochrane, Alberta – July 4, 2011 – Life Choice brand, a leader in the natural supplements and vitamin industry agree with the results of a study published in the scientific research journal “Neurologia”, (June, 2011) that “the prolong ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health, particularly to the nervous system."

In this study, the researchers (Valdex-Jimenez et al.) concluded, "It is important to be aware of this serious problem (fluoride use) and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride."

Valdez-Jimenez, et al. describe studies that show fluoride induces changes in the brain's physical structure and biochemistry which affects the neurological  and mental development of individuals including cognitive processes, such as learning and memory. They stated, "fluoride is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which may cause biochemical and functional changes in the nervous system during pregnancy, since the fluoride accumulates in brain tissue before birth," they write.*

A different research team (Tang et al.) reported in 2008 that "A qualitative review of the studies found a consistent and strong association between the exposure to fluoride and low IQ." (Biological Trace Element Research)  

In 2006, the U.S. National Research Council's (NRC) expert fluoride panel reviewed fluoride toxicology and concluded, "It's apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain."

Vyvyan Howard, M.D., Ph.D., a prominent fetal toxicologist and past-President of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, said that current brain/fluoride research convinces him that we should stop water fluoridation.

Many communities have stopped or rejected fluoridation in the past several years – the most recent is Fairbanks, Alaska.  This year, seven New York City Council Members co-sponsored legislation to stop fluoridation in NYC.
