June 28 - July 4, 2021
This week, from June 28 to July 4, Mercola.com highlights Fluoride Awareness Week by raising public awareness about fluoride – sources of exposure, toxicity, and impact to your overall health and well-being.
While thousands of tons of fluoridation chemicals are added to public drinking water supplies throughout the U.S. each year, it's done despite a large body of government-funded research indicating that fluoride is neurotoxic and associated with lowered IQs in children as well as a significant increase in ADHD diagnosis in fluoridated communities. Experts in toxicology have likened the size of the effect to that from lead. Recent studies have also confirmed that fluoride toxicity can potentially lead to a wide-range of serious health problems – impacting your bones, thyroid, liver, kidneys, pineal gland, and even blood sugar levels. Fortunately, we have organizations like the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) who are helping to fight for the end of water fluoridation worldwide. Fluoride consumption ought to be a choice, not a mandate!
This whole week, help us fight fluoridation. To benefit anti-fluoridation efforts, we are matching donations up to $25,000 during Fluoride Awareness Week. You can also donate directly to FAN.
