The results of the first ever US government funded study on the effects of fluoride on IQ have now been published. A team of researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health found that low levels of fluoride exposure during pregnancy is linked to significantly reduced IQ in children, according to a study published on September 19, 2017, in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
The study, entitled “Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico”, was conducted by a team of scientists from University of Toronto, University of Michigan, Harvard, and McGill, and found: “…higher levels of maternal urinary fluoride during pregnancy (a proxy for prenatal fluoride exposure) that are in the range of levels of exposure in other general population samples of pregnant women as well as nonpregnant adults were associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at 4 and 6–12 years old.”

In 2014 Safe Water Healdsburg presented Healdsburg City Council with a letter signed by hundreds of concerned residents requesting that the standard CDC warning concerning fluoride consumption by infants be printed on our water bills. Regretfully, City Council rejected the public’s request. In light of the findings of this new study it is imperative that we warn our expectant mothers that ingesting Healdsburg’s fluoridated water will likely reduce the IQ of their unborn children. Join us at the City Council Meeting on Monday, October 2 at 5:30pm and let the council members know that the city has a moral obligation to warn our families about the dangers that come with ingesting our fluoridated water.
