the title of this thread is a lie, that "study" doesn't confirm fluoride lowers IQ, it says it might possibly cause at high levels cause lowering of IQ.
of course no where does it say how high the fluoride needs to be to cause it, and it isn't even sure that the correlation is even strong enough to be the causation or not.
anything is toxic at too high levels anyway, even water.
then again this is what i've come to expect here, biased reports with no critical examinations.
"The ‘dental caries prevention myth’ associated with fluoride, originated in the United States in 1939, when a scientist named Gerald J. Cox, employed by ALCOA, the largest producer of toxic fluoride waste and at the time being threatened by fluoride damage claims, fluoridated some lab rats, concluded that fluoride reduced cavities and claimed that it should be added to the nation’s water supplies."

There's a great book on this:
The Flouride Deception.
Unbelievable the way TBTB got this into our drinking supply.

They said high fluoride. Almost everything's toxic in high quantities, even water can kill people in high amounts.

Americans must main vein fluoride!
The study was published in the July 20th online edition of Environmental Health Perspectives, a peer-reviewed journal published by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Here is the link to the article published in their July 20th issue: Link

The truth is, fluoride is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic. Really? Would we put lead in our water if someone said it helped our teeth? The whole concept is ridiculous.
I just started researching this issue further this year. When I realized fluoride could be the cause of my hypothyroidism, I stopped drinking tap water. After two months, my doctor LOWERED my thyroid medication. I then switched to a fluoride-free toothpaste and tried to eliminate other sources of fluoride. After another 2 months, my doctor lowered my thyroid medication a second time. My thyroid medication has NEVER been lowered in the over 10 years since I was diagnosed. Attempting to avoid fluoride was the only change I made.
The thyroid medication Synthroid is the 3rd most commonly-prescribed medication in the US. The problem is, with fluoride added to our water and an ingredient in some pesticides, it is almost impossible to avoid. It is in almost every non-organic (and many organic) things we eat and drink. We are being exposed to fluoride from all angles. We cannot get fluoride out of our food supply without stopping water fluoridation everywhere.
The American Dental Association continues to state fluoride is responsible for reducing cavities. The National Institute of Dental Health produced the largest and most comprehensive study on over 39,000 school children aged 5 -17 years. The study showed no significant differences in cavities in fluoridated vs. non-fluoridated or partially fluoridated communities. This study was never refuted by the ADA.
