(RepublicanPeak.com)- It has come to light that the National Toxicology Program (NTP) assessed the toxicity of fluoride that was delayed for six years by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the dept. Of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Internally called a “monograph,” the May 2022 NTP evaluation was halted from being released thanks to Rachel Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health.
A report shows that the study was finally made public on March 15, 2023, after the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) filed a lawsuit in response to Levine’s blocking of the investigation. The mainstream media has so far chosen to disregard the findings.
The study shows that prenatal and young children’s exposure to fluoride affects IQ levels, as concluded by the latest meta-analysis, which obtained universal endorsement from external peer reviewers.
Fluoride has been added to most city water sources in the United States, but it is not added to the water supply in most nations.
The analysis found that fluoride exposure was definitively associated with lower IQ in 52 of the 55 research data examined.
According to a report, natural sources of fluoride include the earth, water, and food. It is also manufactured artificially for various chemical, food, and beverage applications.
Studies have shown that increasing fluoride levels in water supplies can reduce tooth decay, so water authorities do so in regions where the fluoride content of the water is naturally low.
However, concerns have been raised about the effects of fluoride on health, particularly regarding bone and tooth formation and brain growth.
Skeletal fluorosis is a condition of the bones caused by prolonged exposure to fluoride. Pain and deterioration of the joints and bones may develop over time. Fractures may become more likely when the bones stiffen and lose their elasticity. Joint mobility may be reduced if bones expand and bone tissue collects.
The International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), which opposes the use of added fluoride, claims it can cause various health issues. Those include acne, lowered fertility, premature puberty in girls, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cancer, and hyperparathyroidism.
