Lead Linked to Autism - Fluoride Increases Lead Absorption

A new study reveals that children with Autism had much higher levels of lead levels throughout their development, according to Medical News Today.

The new research was led by Manish Arora, Ph.D., an environmental scientist and dentist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, NY, and the findings were published in the journal Nature Communications.

Naturally exfoliated baby teeth were analyzed for lead content. However, fluoride level wasn't mentioned; but should be tested.

Lead is allowed in fluoridation chemicals used in most US public water supplies

Here's an explanation of how that occurs.

Also, while not providing a direct link to autism, several studies show that fluoride increases blood lead levels.

Fluoride chemicals added to public water supplies, boosts lead absorption in lab animals' bones, teeth and blood, report Sawan, et al. (Toxicology 2/2010).
Earlier studies already show children's blood-lead-levels are higher in  fluoridated communities, reports Sawan's research team.
"…exposure to increased amounts of lead and fluoride occurs at about the same age (1-3 years)… Therefore, this is a critical time when systemic exposure to fluoride should be minimized since fluoride may increase lead accumulation," the researchers caution.
"These findings suggest that a biological effect, not recognized so far, may underlie the epidemiological association between increased blood-lead levels in children and water fluoridation," concludes Sawan's research team.
"Our findings may have serious implications for populations exposed to increased amounts  of both lead and fluoride, particularly young children," the research team writes.
Masters and Coplan's landmark studies show higher blood-lead-levels in children living in silico-fluoridated communities. (Neurotoxicology 2000, 2007).
Macek's research shows children's higher blood-lead-levels are associated with water fluoridation when lead is already in the environment
(Environmental Health Perspectives, 2006).

  • Deeply hidden in EPA archives is the raw data from lead leaching from lead service lines (LSL)in experimental lead pipeloops in DC. EPA was varying fluoride concentration and asking the question does hydrofluorosillicic acid(HFSA) increase lead corrosion from LSL. EPA lied repeatedly on the levels of lead off the LSL BY A FACTOR OF 40 times. Misinterpreted and misepresented the results and allowed manipulation of the experimental setup. EPA ignored my report to their Inspector General. True findings are: adding caustic to neutralize acidity was most effective at lowering lead levels. Lead scales were mainly compounds of fluoride. Lead levels were highest in the summer. Some specific sections of the data show that HFSA addition increased lead corrosion.
    Also the monthly reports out of Flint MI show lowered pH and addition of HFSA at the same time as change in water source. The utility tried to save money and add less neutralizing additives.
