Raising Ethan in a thriving environment has been harder than imagined and environmental/gov. obstacles prohibit this goal. So now I am more cautious of what Ethan ingests that was originally thought of as “safe” but is actually toxic. Sharing some essential articles that needed to be passed on. Hope this information helps make raising your little ones healthy as they were meant to be!
Water Fluoridation Lowers IQ
In December 2010, a study reporting an association with exposure to fluoride and lowered IQ in children was pre-published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials.
According to the authors, “our study suggested that low levels of fluoride exposure in drinking water had negative effects on children’s intelligence and dental health and confirmed the dose–response relationships between urine fluoride and IQ scores as well as dental fluorosis.” This study indicates a 5 point lowering in IQ as the fluoride level in drinking water went from about 0.3 ppm to 3.0 ppm.
Amazingly, as Dr. Connett states, there are no less than 23 more studies from four different countries indicating that even moderate exposure to fluoride lowers IQ in children.
Warning: Please Avoid Feeding This to Your Child
Manganese in drinking water from wells has been linked to Parkinson’s disease while manganese in soy infant formula was associated with lower IQ in children.
