Researchers from Toronto reveal a direct link between fluoridated drinking water and the onset of ADHD-like symptoms in children. Psychologist, Dr. Christine Till PhD and Ashley Malin M.A. conducted the research which was released February 2015 in Environmental Health. http://www.ehjournal.net/content/14/1/17/abstract
Their research concluded that fluoride drinking water is an environmental risk factor toward the onset of ADHD-like symptoms. Malin and Till state the following in their research….. “Exposure to fluoridated water may contribute to ADHD via suppression of the thyroid gland.” They further explain that children and adults living in fluoridated communities (0.7 – 1.2 mg/L) actually received 0.9 – 3.6 mg/L and 0.6 – 6.6 mg/L of fluoride per day, respectively from all sources, including water, food and dental products. “Fluoride can readily cross the placenta, accumulate in the infant brain and easily exert neurotoxic effects…Such changes can adversely affect arousal and attention, pain tolerance, and learning and memory, respectively. Importantly, among children who were exposed environmentally to water fluoridated at 1.2 – 3 mg/L (slightly above the US recommended level), increased urinary fluoride concentrations were associated with slower reaction time and poorer visuospatial organization that could interfere with attention, and reading and writing respectively.”
The Price of ADHD Business health segment on the Price of Business radio show recently interviewed researcher Ashley Malin. The full interview can be heard via The Price of Business. Host Kevin Price and I believe the time has come for corporate America to capitalize, and manufacture fluoride-free bottled water….eliminating the fluoride environmental risk factor which may cause ADHD-like symptoms in children.
