Marketed as an anti-tooth decay improvement, there is increasing evidence that the fluoridation of water may have a range of deleterious effects upon the brain (e.g. lowering IQ) and may actually not have much affect on tooth decay.

The fluoridation of drinking water is by no means as uncontroversial as the official narrative would have people believe.

Official narrative

A simple echoing of the official narrative on water fluoridation is provided by a 2013 article by David Grimes in which he praises the practice unreservedly, stating that fluoride in drinking water is safe and effective at preventing dental caries and that the practice "is one of the few health interventions that saves much more money than it costs" and that "it’s easy to dismantle the arguments of anti-fluoridation campaigners". He quotes the Centres for Disease Control that "reviews provide compelling evidence that community water fluoridation is a safe and effective method for reducing tooth decay across all ages".[1]

As of 2017, although efforts continue to expand Fluoridation in some countries like New Zealand[2] and Israel,[3] others (e.g.Scotland)[4] are in the process of questioning its suitability and safety.

The first water fluoridation project was carried out in 1945 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.

Many governments now put fluoride in drinking water, and the academic community was for a long time extremely hostile to anyone who challenged this practice.

Extensive research on the history of water fluoridation was done with the book 'The Fluoride Deception' by Christopher Bryson.[5] Fluoride in drinking water has been shown to be strongly correlated with later ADHD prevalence, and high levels of fluoride are correlated with fluorosis and lower IQ.[6][7] Some areas in China have a high natural level of fluoride, leading to research aiming to find how much to reduce fluoride concentration to make it safe enough to drink.

Dumbing down

In 2014, The Lancet published a paper which mentioned that "A meta-analysis of 27 cross-sectional studies of children exposed to fluoride in drinking water, mainly from China, suggests an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations."[8].

A 2019 paper found that fluoride exposure in utero decreased the IQ of boys.[9] As of August 2019, a total of 69 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence. Of these investigations, 61 found that fluoride was associated with decreased IQ.[10]

Fluoride can induce inflammation and damage in rat brains, especially within the hippocampus.[11]

Pineal gland

Fluoride can exert a deleterious effect on the pineal gland, affecting melatonin production, sleep and childhood development.[12][13]


"High fluoride exposure (markedly greater than in the water supply) has been associated with hypothyroidism, especially in the setting of iodine deficiency."[14]


In 2005, a study conducted at the Harvard School of Dental Health found that fluoride in tap water directly contributed to causing bone cancer in young boys.[15]

Reversal of fluoridation

In 2019 a 1971 policy of fluoridation was reversed in an Iowa town.[16][15]


Related Quotation

Dean Burk“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.”Dean Burk

File:The Fluoride Deception Preview.pdfBook7 March 2006Christopher BrysonThis is a preview PDF, which includes only the first 92 pages of this well researched and well referenced expose of water fluoridation in the USA. Bryson draws on many interviews with scientists, and archival research in places such as the newly opened files of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Energy Commission. The book reveals how and why water was ever fluoridated, and some of the dangers of this practice."
