In a newly published study in Harvard’s The Lancet helps hone in on the toxins that cause autism and ADHD. Researchers from both the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) have gone on to say that along with these numerous environmental toxins, have attributed fluoridated water to the higher incidence of both behavioral and cognitive disorders.
Back in 2006 Harvard had already published a study that focused on fluoride to be a ‘developmental neurotoxicant’. This newer study, however, looked at over 27 additional investigations into the matter via a meta-analysis. In the 2006 study, it had already established that fluoride consumption leads to lowering children’s IQ scores dramatically. The leftover fluoride from industry was passed off as ‘medicine’, which obstructs the brain’s development and is associated with a full spectrum of serious health issues from dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, autism, and so much more.
The study calls out many scientific papers and mainstream media’s actions of ignoring this chemical and calls it a ‘silent epidemic’.
Philip Landrigan and Philippe Grandjean, two of the main researchers that were involved in the study say that in the past 7 years the incidences of chemical-related neurodevelopmental disorders have doubled from 6 to 12.
The study goes on to admit that there are a numerous amount of chemicals to blame as well, many of which have been untested or even unceremoniously approved by the USDA, CDC, and FDA without knowing the long term ramifications on human health, yet fluoride is a definite culprit.
“Since 2006, the number of chemicals known to damage the human brain more generally, but that are not regulated to protect children’s health, had increased from 202 to 214,” writes Julia Medew for The Sydney Morning Herald. “The pair said this could be the tip of the iceberg because the vast majority of the more than 80,000 industrial chemicals widely used in the United States have never been tested for their toxic effects on the developing fetus or child.”
The truth of the matter is that pesticide, heavy metals, fluoride, herbicides, radioactive isotopes, weather warfare chemicals, and even GMO foods are generating a neurological-toxic mix that is unprecedented in our human history.
Fluoride, along with other toxins, tends to accumulate in the blood stream and even seeping past the blood-brain barrier. After a while, the body attempts to defend itself from all of these unwanted substances. These substances make their advancements into not only our organs but our bones as well, causing cognitive abnormalities, cancer, and even birth defects in our unborn children. In pregnant woman, fluoride is known to pass into the placenta, yet most regulatory agencies ignore its extremely toxic legacy.
As these chemicals continue to lurk in our food and water supply, our air and even soil continue causing the neurological decline of both young and elderly.
