Summary of Fluoride's Potential Health Hazards
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/01/20/fluoride-denialism.aspx?e_cid=20130120_SNL_Art_1&utm_source=snl&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20130120It's important to realize that fluoride is a cumulative toxin, which over time can lead to more serious health concerns than dental fluorosis (spotting on your teeth). Skeletal fluorosis from fluoride toxicity can be crippling and even deadly. The neurological effects are also quite disturbing. There are now 25 studies showing fluoride is associated with diminished IQ, even at levels as low as 0.3 to 3 parts per million, which overlaps the range in many American communities (0.7 to 1.2 ppm). Studies have shown fluoride toxicity can lead to the wide-ranging problems listed below.
|Increases lead absorption||Disrupts collagen synthesis||Hyperactivity and/or lethargy||Crippling skeletal fluorosis and bone fractures|
|Genetic damage and cell death||Increased tumor and cancer growth||Disrupts immune system||Inhibits antibody production|
|Brain damage, and lowered IQ||Dementia||Arthritis||Severe eye problems, including blindness|
|Impaired thyroid function||Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)||Inactivates 62 enzymes||Muscle disorders|
