Fluoride is present in our tap drinking water. We were told this was present for our own good and for our teeth. We now know that Fluoride does more harm than good, having been associated with damaging brain function. “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain. The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us.” Dr. Philippe Grandjean, an environmental health scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health
“The neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) in the brain are important for functional processes, including cognitive and memory functions… The nAChRs are found to be involved in a complex range of central nervous system disorders including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, Tourette’s syndrome, anxiety, depression, and epilepsy. The exact role of nAChRs and their full potential as a therapeutic target in these diseases have yet to be clarified.” Dr. Agneta Nordberg, a Swedish neurotoxicologist and expert on nAChRs.
Although I am by no means an expert on the area, I don't think one needs to be, to know that the removal of fluoride from our water is vital for our mental health and the health of our children. Below are some links to websites with factual information regarding fluoride in our water and its effects.
