The movement to remove industrial sodium fluoride from the world’s piped water supply has been growing in recent years, with damning evidence on negative health effects of fluoridated water coming from several sources.
Now, a report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin; “known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in human beings” in the same category as arsenic, lead, mercury, toluene, DDT and PCBs. 
In the Lancet report, the authors propose a global prevention strategy, saying that “untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.”
This tallies with our own view, which is that rather than being considered “safe until proven unsafe”, a new chemical should be proven safe before being dumped on the landscape or into the food or water supply!
Also in the report, they note that neurodevelopmental disabilities, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, are now affecting millions of children worldwide in what they call a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”
The report coincides with 2013 findings by a Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health that concluded that children in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in areas with low amounts of fluoride in their water supplies.
We also have a report from the British Medical Journal that Fluoridated Water Causes Hypothyroidism, Weight Gain, AND Depression
Are you still fine about fluoride in your water after reading these reports from the most prestigious scientific research organizations? What’s going on here, exactly?
One thing you can do is look into water filtration. This ultra-high quality water filter from Berkey (Amazon link) also comes with 2 fluoride filters. It’s an investment that will end up costing less than drinking bottled water daily while saving on plastic bottle use.
