The Connecticut Department of Health (CTDPH) is encouraging toothpaste with fluoride for children, despite evidence that links fluoride to neurodevelopmental damage in children, according to the National Toxicology Program (NTP).
The NTP, an interagency program run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that researches and reports on environmental toxins, conducted a six-year-long systematic review to assess the science on fluoride exposure and potential neurodevelopmental and cognitive health effects in humans.
A September 2022 draft of the review revealed that 18 out of 19 high-quality, low-bias studies consistently showed evidence that higher fluoride exposure is associated with lower IQ scores in children.
A further 46 of the 53 low-quality studies in children also found evidence of an association between higher fluoride exposure and lower IQ in children.
The study’s findings obviously contradict "mainstream" assumptions about fluoride, and challenge the positions of the dental industry, the sugar industry and health regulatory agencies on the safety and benefits of fluoridating water in order to prevent cavities.
Remember how mainstream assumptions about covid vaccines lined up with the positions of the pharmaceutical industry, the health care industry, and health regulatory agencies? And they all called covid vaccines "safe and effective" despite the evidence?
Fool me once...
