Background: A recent 2015 study from New Zealand indicated water fluoridation did not have an effect on children’s IQs. A 2012 meta-analysis showed that children with higher fluoride exposure have lower IQs than similar children with lower exposures. Levels of the fluoride ion (F) in blood and urine in children have been linked quantitatively to a significantly lower IQ. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is in the process of developing a healthbased drinking water… CONTINUE READING
