Well, like we didn't know this but at least someone up here in Canada is studying the issue

Drinking fluoride water when pregnant can cause 10 point decrease in mental ability. That ten points is enough of a spread between clinically designated as retarded and normal.That happens during pregnancies what is the total loss of drinking it over a lifetime?

Lets look at the title of this thread....



Floride in drinking water making kids less intelligent


And in your OP you say:




Seems drinking floride in water is causing our kids to be stupid


SOOOO......

Lets look at what the article you have linked to actually says because it does not say that Fluoride (not Floride) in drinking waters is actually making kids less intelligent this is what its saying:


Fluoride exposure from drinking water during pregnancy could be making children less intelligent, a new Canadian study argues.


COULD...not that it actually is just that they have found that it could be causing a 4.5 drop in IQ points. Saying it could be doing something is in no way the researchers saying they have proved causation only that they're saying this could be happening.

It goes on to say....


However, the researchers only found an association, due to the observational nature of the study


And....


Despite these findings, more studies with similar results will be needed to prompt a tough reconsideration of fluoride's safety


In other words more research is needed, not that its making kids less intelligent.

This though is the best big, the article you linked to OP, it says Fluoride is safe


"Throughout more than 70 years of research and practical experience, the overwhelming weight of credible scientific evidence has consistently indicated that fluoridation of community water supplies is safe," the ADA said. "The evidence-based research shows the recommended concentrations of fluoride (0.7 mg/L) used in community water fluoridation is beneficial and safe for the public.


Also that:


The researchers found that urinary fluoride levels during pregnancy were associated with lower IQ scores in boys, but no statistically significant association was found in girls.


Hell even the authors themselves acknowledge that the study does not prove that Fluoride drops IQ.


the study could not prove that fluoride exposure actually caused IQ levels to drop.


Moral of the story OP,

Next time actually read the article you're linking too because this in no way proves that fluoride is making kids less intelligent.

What did you do, co author the story and now back tracking. Lol

I did read the study by the way.....

Seems to me there's enough concern that I'd recommend any woman not drink the water if floridation is being used in their area

The story wasn't put out just for the hell of it

There isn't really any harm in advising pregnant women to not drink fluoridated water, but am just highlighting that the article in no way whatsoever claims what you say it claims.

Then why did you clam that the article said that drinking fluoridated water makes kids less intelligent when it didn't.

Either you didn't read the article or you were deliberately misrepresenting it to push your own agenda whatever that might be.

Misread the title as "Florida in drinking water making children less intelligent"

Just thought I'd share the giggle I had, and I declare my misread makes more sense. ;P

Remember when we all thought baby powder was safe... yeah.. putting any kind of chemical in your body has effects on said body. Thinking other wise is silly and stupid which you have the water to thank for that... yay us...

You are the one with the agenda bud

This study was done on the heels of a Mexican study of the same issue

Anyway. Tell ur wife to drink the water when pregnant, I'm done listening to you

Personally, i blame "Fortnite".


If you wish to know why our weans are less intelligent than previous generations look no further than the inadequate substandard education systems where every child is considered ""Special"".

Christ almighty, soon all they will need to do to get into university is turn up with a pencil.


Plus applicable funding of course.

So not answering the question then.....

I am not the one who is misrepresenting the article. It does not say that fluoride lowers the IQ of children, doesn't say that, you have presented zero evidence on which to base this claim.



Tell ur wife to drink the water when pregnant


Like I said I have no issue with looking at bit a of research like this and making the decision not to drink fluoridated water because it might (I stress the word might) cause a slight drop in IQ . My issue is that you are presenting this like its a fact when its not, you have not provided any evidence to support your claim that fluoride makes kids less intelligent.



I'm done listening to you


Why?

Honestly why is it so hard to say "ohhh yeah actually you're right", dude you wrote thread based on a article that either you didn't read, didn't fully understand or just wanted to twist to suit your agenda, not me, thats on you.

The whole idea of adding fluoride to water in order to protect the public from tooth decay is not really believable. The stuff has to coat your teeth, is there no other way than having it it in all of your drinking/cooking water and ingesting it your whole life.

Especially nowadays. We got rid of it decades ago.

The effects of Fluoride on the human brain has been well established during the concentration camps of World War 2. High does of fluoride where given to the prison population to keep them docile. While some fluoride does support healthy teeth, too much also leads to calcification of the pituitary gland which is a cognitohazzard.

Fluoride is a basic element by its self, something our bodies just has to deal with. Various molecular versions of fluoride are put in the drinking water based on industry sources. To undertake a program like water fluoridation without acknowledging and measuring all the metrics is really, really, really, dumb, really.
