Dr. Keith Ablow, a prominent psychiatrist and member of the Fox News
"Medical A-Team," recently wrote an editorial for the news giant that
questions the safety of water fluoridation in light of all the recent
science illustrating its dangers. The piece is indicative of an
increasing awareness, even within the mainstream media, that Americans
have not been told the full story about fluoride, despite having it
largely forced on them in the name of promoting dental health.
Citing a recent scientific review compiled by experts at Harvard University that identifies a clear link between fluoride exposure and brain damage,
Dr. Ablow rightly presses the issue about whether or not fluoridating
public water supplies truly is in the best interests of promoting public
health. NaturalNews also recently covered the Harvard study, which was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. (http://www.naturalnews.com/036873_fluoride_lower_IQ_brain_damage.html)
Surprising that it would come from a source like Fox News, Dr. Ablow points out that a comprehensive analysis of 27 different fluoride studies confirms that fluoride damages brain tissue, particularly in unborn babies and young children. Such exposure to fluoride, which comes not only from drinking fluoridated water but also from bathing in it, ends up significantly lowering the average IQ level among children exposed, the analysis found.
