A Few Reasons To Avoid Fluoride

Fluoride May Damage Your Thyroid.

Recent studies suggest that water fluoridation in England is linked to a 30 per cent increase in underactive thyroid diagnosis. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate how well every cell, tissue, and organ in the body functions.

These hormones regulate some of the most vital bodily functions.

New data suggests fluoridated water could even lead to brain damage and lower IQs in kids.

As of February 2021, a total of 76 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence. Of these investigations, 68 studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ in humans.
