New Study Finds a Strong Link Between ADHD and Water Fluoridation


article imageThe study published in the Environmental Health discovered that the rates of ADHD in children were much higher in states where fluoride is being added to tap water. The authors of the study Ashley J. Malin and Christine Till looked at ADHD data collected from 2003, 2007 and 2011; and water fluoridation statistics from 1992 and 2008. The link between ADHD and water fluoridation held up across different years. In 2011, 6.4 million school-aged children (11% total) were reported to have been diagnosed with ADHD, according to the CDC.
Many studies show that children with fluorosis , condition caused by overexposure to fluoride, have lower IQ scores and have cognitive problems.
Instead of fluoride: teeth remineralization shows potential for preventing and even treating tooth decay.
Few people realize it, but 90% of water fluoridation does not use a pharmaceutical grade fluoride (sodium fluoride) but fluorosilicic acid, a byproduct of manufacturing phosphate fertilizer, reported Newsweek.
