Well, like we didn't know this but at least someone up here in Canada is studying the issue
Seems drinking floride in water is causing our kids to be stupid. Lol. Just great, please don't drink the water ladies!
Floride in drinking water making kids less intelligent
Seems drinking floride in water is causing our kids to be stupid
Fluoride exposure from drinking water during pregnancy could be making children less intelligent, a new Canadian study argues.
However, the researchers only found an association, due to the observational nature of the study
Despite these findings, more studies with similar results will be needed to prompt a tough reconsideration of fluoride's safety
"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.
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.
the study could not prove that fluoride exposure actually caused IQ levels to drop.
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
I did read the study by the way.....
You are the one with the agenda bud
Tell ur wife to drink the water when pregnant
I'm done listening to you

Harvard University has a study done a few years back... Flouride when drinking during a child in its developmental yrs have a lower IQ as opposed to those not drinking fluoridated water. reply to: OtherSideOfTheCoin
