Not only is fluoride a documented neurotoxin, several studies have shown it to have a detrimental effect on the IQ of developing children. In the below study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics they found, “In this prospective birth cohort study, fluoride exposure during pregnancy was associated with lower IQ scores in children aged 3 to 4 years.”
I’ve also included some slides from a few of my mentor’s, Dr. Randy Tent, presentations that highlight just how damaging fluoride is. If you live in an area with fluoridated water there are a few ways to remove it. Berkey water filters with the fluoride filters are a convenient way to remove it as our reverse osmosis (RO) units. Berkey water filters are a countertop solution whereas RO units are installed next to your kitchen sink. It’s important to note, if you use an RO filter it completely strips the water of good and bad components so make sure you add some minerals back to your water. A simple way to do that is by adding 1/4tsp of Celtic or Redmond salt to your water a few times per day and use it to salt your food.
