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…

A Benchmark Dose Analysis for Maternal Pregnancy Urine-Fluoride and IQ in Children
TLDR
The results can be used to guide decisions on preventing excess fluoride exposure in vulnerable populations and explore the concentration-effect function for maternal urinary fluoride with childrens IQ, including possible sex-dependence.
Developmental fluoride neurotoxicity: an updated review
TLDR
The recent epidemiological results support the notion that elevated fluoride intake during early development can result in IQ deficits that may be considerable, and recognition of neurotoxic risks is necessary when determining the safety of fluoride-contaminated drinking water and fluoride uses for preventive dentistry purposes.
A Benchmark Dose Analysis for Maternal Pregnancy Urine-Fluoride and IQ in Children.
As a guide to establishing a safe exposure level for fluoride exposure in pregnancy, we applied benchmark dose modeling to data from two prospective birth cohort studies. We included mother-child
REVIEWS OF DEVELOPMENTAL FLUORIDE NEUROTOXICITY BY GRANDJEAN AND GUTH ET AL
  • 2019
An updated review by Philippe Grandjean, published in Environmental Health on December 19, 2019, of developmental fluoride neurotoxicity concluded that recent epidemiological results support the
Contribution to the ongoing discussion on fluoride toxicity
TLDR
The totality of evidence does not support the notion that fluoride should be considered a human developmental neurotoxicant at current exposure levels in European countries.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TIMING IN FLUORIDE-INDUCED DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROTOXICITY
  • 2019
Exposure to the fluoride ion can, in sufficient dose, induce neurotoxicity at any age, in both adults and children, but for fluoride-induced neurotoxicity to occur, in response to exposure to low
Appendix G POOLED BMD ANALYSIS OF THE ELEMENT AND MIREC DATASETS
As a safe exposure level for fluoride in pregnancy has not been established, we used data from two prospective studies for benchmark dose modeling. We included mother-child pairs from the Early Life

  • 2017
New research suggests that the intrauterine period is the time when the developing brain is most at risk for fluoride ion (F)-induced neurotoxicity. The prevention of F-induced neurotoxicity and IQ
Fluoridation and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – a critique of Malin and Till (2015)
TLDR
A multiple regression analysis including water fluoridation extent, mean US state elevation and a number of possibly important social factors as covariates showed statistically significant associations of ADHD prevalence in 2011 with altitude and per capita personal income in 2009.
INVESTIGATION OF THE FLUORIDE CONTENT OF EDIBLE SALT AND THE FLUORIDE INTAKE FROM EDIBLE SALT CONSUMPTION IN IRAN
In order to estimate the fluoride ion (F) content of edible salt and the F intake from edible salt consumption in Iran, the F content was measured in 37 brands of edible salt consumed in Iran. The F

Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The results support the possibility of an adverse effect of high fluoride exposure on children’s neurodevelopment and recommend further research on prenatal exposure, neurobehavioral performance, and covariates for adjustment.
Decreased intelligence in children and exposure to fluoride and arsenic in drinking water.
TLDR
The data suggest that children exposed to either F or As have increased risks of reduced IQ scores, and a significant association was observed between As in urine and Full IQ scores.
Arsenic and Fluoride Exposure in Drinking Water: Children’s IQ and Growth in Shanyin County, Shanxi Province, China
TLDR
Children’s intelligence and growth can be affected by high concentrations of As or fluoride, and a study of 720 children between 8 and 12 years of age in rural villages in Shanyin county, Shanxi province, China indicates that arsenic exposure can affect children's intelligence and grow.
A Strategy for Comparing the Contributions of Environmental Chemicals and Other Risk Factors to Neurodevelopment of Children
TLDR
A method for comparing the relative contributions of different risk factors provides a rational basis for establishing priorities for reducing neurodevelopmental morbidity in children.
Neurotoxicity of sodium fluoride in rats.
TLDR
After fluoride ingestion, the severity of the effect on behavior increased directly with plasma F levels and F concentrations in specific brain regions, considering that plasma levels in this rat model are similar to those reported in humans exposed to high levels of fluoride.
Effect of fluoride in drinking water on children's intelligence
SUMMARY: The Intelligence Quotient (IQ) was measured in 512 children, aged 8-13 years, living in two villages in Sihong County, Jiangsu Province, China, differing in the level of fluoride in their
ANALYSIS OF CHILDREN ’ S SERUM FLUORIDE LEVELS IN RELATION TO INTELLIGENCE SCORES IN A HIGH AND LOW FLUORIDE WATER VILLAGE IN CHINA
As part of a 2002-2003 investigation on the effects of high fluoride drinking water on IQ scores of children, serum fluoride (F) levels in the children were subjected to further study. Among the new
Public Health and Economic Consequences of Methyl Mercury Toxicity to the Developing Brain
TLDR
It is found that between 316,588 and 637,233 children each year have cord blood mercury levels > 5.8 μg/L, a level associated with loss of IQ, and the resulting loss of intelligence causes diminished economic productivity that persists over the entire lifetime of these children.
Total Fluoride Intake in Children Aged 3 to 4 Years—A Longitudinal Study
TLDR
Levels of fluoride intake from foods and drinks alone as estimated by the duplicate-diet approach are much lower than previously estimated from food consumption tables or diet records and need to be further reduced if dental fluorosis in children is to be avoided.
