UK Against Fluoridation

N.Z. - Fluoride harm

In response to Chris Price's letters of March 23, April 3 and 22, there are many studies outlining harmful effects of fluoride to the 350 million (not "500 million") people exposed. For instance:


Classification of fluoride as a neurotoxin was by Philippe Grandjean, Professor of Environmental Health at Harvard, specialising in developmental toxicity. He has not classed fluoride with "coffee, alcohol and sweeteners" but much more toxic "lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain".

Health Liberty Group is a web platform of health and environmental groups concerned with GMO, toxins in vaccines, fluoride etc. Price needs to cite source re HLG being taken to court.

Some context to Price's quote re the 2017 Bashash IQ study. Dr Mier Martinez, is only one of 15 researchers, a dentist with an industry to defend. Her comment re limiting salt intake in Mexico is because it is salt fluoridated, not water. Lead investigator Howard Hu states: "This is a very rigorous epidemiology study ... It's directly related to whether fluoride is a risk for the neurodevelopment of children ..."

Price's quote from Seymour, that people who drink "optimally fluoridated water, and dental products as recommended will not exceed maximum levels of fluoride," is incorrect. "Since the 1980s, numerous studies have identified that adults and children are exceeding these agreed limits ... In 1991, the US Centres for Disease Control measured fluoride levels and found where water is fluoridated between 0.7 and 1.2 ppm overall fluoride, total fluoride intake for adults was between 1.58 and 6.6 mg per day, while for children it was between 0.9 and 3.6 mg per day.' (Peckham and Awofeso, 2014).
