  • Adding fluoride to water is a medical treatment, and a forced one at that because this substance is difficult to remove from your water
  • Fluoride was recently added to a list of 11 known industrial chemicals that harm brain development in human fetuses and infants
  • Despite fluoride’s known developmental risks, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued new recommendations for the use of fluoridated toothpaste in infants and children
  • The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set the so-called “safe” level of fluoride in drinking water at the ridiculously high level of 4 ppm (mg/L) in 1986. We are still living with this standard even though the National Research Council recommended it be lowered in 2006
