In 2014, a landmark study showed that Fluoride causes a range of Neurodevelopmental disabilities. The study had previously shown a series of chemicals, lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene, to be culprits in neurotoxicity. However, a later study added Fluoride to the list.
Exempst from the study:
“Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. Industrial chemicals that injure the developing brain are among the known causes for this rise in prevalence. In 2006, we did a systematic review and identified five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants—manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered. To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy.”
Dr. David Kennedy says there is no such thing as a safe amount of fluoride. He states that even if you use it in toothpaste and spit it out, research shows that blood levels of fluoride increase. What does that do to children's and your health?
Interviewer: If there's a way to tell that you know X amount of fluoride causes x amount of x amount of cancer and it's linear would it be safe to assume that there's no safe level then of water for fluoridation?
Dr. David Kennedy: I think that's correct. As Dr. Marcus explains in the movie that as a scientist how do you develop a safe level of exposure? And he said he doesn't know how he would attack it but he thinks it would probably end up like lead. Where zero is the amount that you should be exposed to. Because the reason he brings up lead is, one, Dr Marcus was the guy that got lead out of the water in the first place and, two, Fluoride is more toxic than lead. So if everybody's worried about lead today, well, why don't we have our children brush with something that's worse than lead? That's insane! It's a hairless toxic and arsenic if I invented an arsenic toothpaste we'd say "You're protected because you'll spit it out." Well, you can't spit stuff out of your mouth. If you measure blood level of fluoride and give a child a dab of toothpaste or do a topical treatment in a dental office, their blood level of fluoride goes up. Even if you supervise them and make them spit out, their blood level of fluoride goes up because your mouth absorbs whatever goes in. So the moral of that story is you should not put anything in the child's mouth that you also couldn't put in the dinner. So if it's not a food, if it's not a nutrient, it doesn't belong in the child's mouth.
