Researchers from Harvard University (HU) the Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) have confirmed previous disclosures that state fluoride is a neurotoxin.
Philip Landrigan, dean for global health and chair of preventative medicine for Icahn School of Medicine (ISM) at MSH, and his colleague Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) concur that fluoride, among other neurotoxins are causational to the onset of neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDDs).
The researchers identify a few NDDs as:
• Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Previously identified neurotoxicants are:
• Polychlorinated biphenyls
• Polybrominated diphenyl ethers
Both Landrigan and Grandjean call for: “A global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity. To coordinate these efforts and to accelerate translation of science into prevention, we propose the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse.”
Back in February, Grandjean explained how toxic chemicals may be triggering NNDs.
Grandjean said: “The greatest concern is the large numbers of children who are affected by toxic damage to brain development in the absence of a formal diagnosis. They suffer reduced attention span, delayed development, and poor school performance. Industrial chemicals are now emerging as likely causes.”
Nearly a decade ago, Lita Lee, chemist and enzyme therapist published a paper entitled, “Fluoride: A Modern Toxic Waste” which chastised the use of sodium fluoride in the public water supply, food and beverages for the average American to consume.
Lee wrote: “Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that fluoride increases the tumor growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumors, transforms normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals. For the original references to these studies, refer to Yiamouyiannis’ pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation.”
Dean Burke, co-founder of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), maintained that fluoride was shown to be direct causation of 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies.
Burk’s findings were suppressed until 1989 after a study involving rats concluded that fluorinated water caused:
• Increase in tumors, cancers in oral squamous cells
• Development of osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer
• Increase in thyroid follicular cell tumors
• Development of hepatocholangiocarcinoma, a rare form of liver cancer
More of Burk’s research has since resurfaced and that show that fluoride increases the cancer death rate exponentially.
When Burk cited this fact, he had conducted a study that followed 10 of the largest US cities with fluorinated public water and 10 cities that did not fluorinate their public water supply.
In the cities that fluorinated their water, cancer deaths shot up in as little as a year.
