Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, nonstick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well.
Fluoride has been the subject of “conspiracy theories” about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, as well as actual research that discovered its now well-known IQ lowering properties. Fluoride also exacerbates the calcification of the pineal gland—the traditional “seat of the soul”—raising concerns about other less-understood side effects. The controversy surrounding this ubiquitous toxicant has many people around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, organizing at the local and statewide level to get fluoride removed from municipal drinking water.
