I was reading this thread and decided to do some research.
I found this quite interesting.
Possible Health Effects of Flouride
-Damage to the male reproductive system
-A weakened immune system
-A weakening of bones
-There is a correlation between increased fluoride and low IQ
-Chromosomal damage and interference with DNA repair
How do chromosomes work?
Chromosomes contain DNA-bound proteins, which serve to package the DNA and control its functions.
-Inhibition of melatonin production
What is melatonin and what does it do for us?
Melatonin regulates the circadian rhythms(interal clock), and is produced in the pineal gland(where the third eye is located) Production of melatonin
is under the influence of daily pattern of light and darkness, and is affected by non-image-forming light information. Circadian rhythms are
important in determining the sleeping and feeding patterns of all animals.
And there's more...
A number of other disorders, for example bipolar disorder and some sleep disorders, are associated with irregular or pathological functioning of
circadian rhythms. The suppression of melatonin production associated with the disruption of the circadian rhythm may increase the risk of developing
Melatonin lowers the levels of leptin, which plays a key role in regulating energy intake and energy expenditure, including appetite and
Leptin signals to the brain that the body has had enough to eat or not.
-A disruption in endocrine function, especially in the thyroid
The endocrine system is instrumental in regulating metabolism, growth, development and puberty, tissue function, and also plays a part in determining
mood. The thyroid controls how quickly the body burns energy, and makes proteins.
