How dangerous is fluoride for children’s intellectual development? According to a recent report released by the US government, this chemical appears to reduce adolescents’ IQ. Other than that, caution is advised with fluoride.
The US government has finally agreed to release a controversial report describing the impact of fluoride on children’s intelligence quotient (IQ). The report, prepared by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP), confirms previous studies showing that high levels of fluoride can impair mental development in children. The report concludes that prenatal and early childhood exposure to fluoride can reduce children’s IQ.
This report was released as part of a legal battle between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). FAN and plaintiffs are trying to prove that fluoride is a neurotoxin and should be regulated or banned. In total, this report is over 1500 pages long and includes comments from external reviewers and internal Departments of Health.
Another “Conspiracy Theory” Turned into Reality: Report Finds Fluoride Can Reduce IQ
“The meta-analysis could not detect any safe exposure, including at levels common from drinking artificially fluoridated water.”https://t.co/yLXzc9D8Sb

The May 2022 abstract of the NTP monograph states: “This review finds with moderate confidence that higher fluoride exposure is consistently associated with lower IQ in children. More studies are needed to fully understand the potential of reduced fluoride exposure on children’s IQ.”
It is strongly recommended that parents educate themselves about the potential health hazards of fluoride and ensure their children are not over-exposed to avoid endangering their intellectual development.
this study found that fluoride consumption was associated with 15% lower testosterone
studies show that fluoride disrupts all the key enzymes necessary to producing testosterone

Fluoride has also been linked to a reduction in testosterone levels in men. This chemical, which is found in commercial toothpaste, among other things, disrupts the key enzymes that are necessary for the production of the hormone.
Sure does, did you know that tamarind helps combat flouride too. Tamarind and other parts of the tamarind plant can increase fluoride excretion, help heal fluoride-related illnesses and even remove fluoride from water.https://t.co/3E9jcZvWlB

However, tamarind appears to help clear fluoride from the body. Both the leaves and the pulp have been shown to be effective for fluoride detoxification. Millions of people are exposed to toxic levels of fluoride through municipal water, toothpaste, and other foods and beverages processed with fluoridated water. Fluoride accumulates, and prolonged excessive fluoride exposure plays an important role in the development of dental, skeletal and other fluoroses in humans and pets.
