Harvard Study – Published in National Institute of Health Journal – Finds Fluoride Lowers Children’s IQ

Yet Another Government Report Finds that Fluoride Lowers IQ in Kids

The Harvard School for Public Health reports:

For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

The study [click for abstract] was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012.

Fluoride: ‘Putting the next generation of brains in danger’

The number of chemicals known to be toxic to children’s developing brains has doubled over the last seven years, researchers said.

Dr. Philip Landrigan at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and Dr. Philippe Grandjean from Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, authors of the review published in The Lancet Neurology journal, say the news is so troubling they are calling for a worldwide overhaul of the regulatory process in order to protect children’s brains.

Why is Tom Barrett still allowing diluted poop to be dumped into the lake?

For years now the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District has been dumping millions of gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan.

We have spent over a billion on a “deep tunnel” that doesn’t work during a heavy rain.

Scott Walker says we should separate the sewers in Milwaukee, the cause of the problem. This can be done over the next 30 years, as they need replacing. So we can FINALLY stop dumping shit into the lake.

Walker has a plan. And Barrett has . . . ?
