New Evidence of Harm from Fluoridation

Published on 12/22/2015

December 21, 2015  

Today we begin a series of bulletins looking back on 2015. We hope these summaries will provide you and other campaigners with useful ammunition in the efforts ahead in 2016. The first retrospective will be from Fluoride Action Network’s Campaign Manager Stuart Cooper who will summarize the new evidence of harm from fluoridation. Before we get to this here is an update on our fundraiser.

Over the weekend we received $3,020 from 17 donors bringing our grand total to $65,847 from 280 supporters. This means that we need to raise just over $9,000 to reach our mini-goal of $75,000 by midnight Dec 24. A few days ago this was looking impossible, now with your generous help I think we can do this. To speed us on our way we have two pledges:

One super-angel will donate another $600 when we reach 300 donors. Another will TRIPLE each donation today (up to a total of $1000). This means that for the first few donations that arrive each $ you donate will be worth THREE $ to us!  

See donation details and our “12-days of Christmas Competition" update after Stuart's article.

 Looking back on 2015, part 1:  More Evidence of Harm From Fluoridation

Scientific reports continue to show the potential for significant adverse effects from the obsolete practice of water fluoridation.  The scientific, medical, and ethical case against fluoridation is already very strong.  And just when you thought the evidence against the practice couldn’t get any more damning, several new studies and reviews were published in 2015 that ought to bring us significantly closer to consigning fluoridation to the history books once and for all.  

1. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

A new study--the first to systemically look at the relationship between a behavioral disorder and fluoridation--was published in February linking fluoridation to ADHD in the United States.  The study entitled, “Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association,” was published in the journal Environmental Health.  The authors, psychologists Christine Till and Ashley Malin at Toronto’s York University, discovered that states with a higher rate of artificially fluoridated water had a higher prevalence of ADHD.  According to the authors:

“State prevalence of artificial water fluoridation in 1992 significantly positively predicted state prevalence of ADHD in 2003, 2007 and 2011, even after controlling for socioeconomic status.

A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1% increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011. Overall state water fluoridation prevalence (not distinguishing between fluoridation types) was also significantly positively correlated with state prevalence of ADHD for all but one year examined.

Conclusions: Parents reported higher rates of medically-diagnosed ADHD in their children in states in which a greater proportion of people receive fluoridated water from public water supplies."
