The Book

Health authorities ignore fetal fluoride exposure. We must not.
The evidence presented in this website validates the need
and right of women to be informed of the potential
risks of drinking fluoridated tap water.

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

Based on what is already known, pregnant women
should avoid consumption of fluoridated water

With each 3 cups of fluoridated water that a pregnant woman drinks, her unborn child receives a fluoride dose over the amount the FDA warns can be poisonous for a 5-year-old to swallow in toothpaste.

With 7 cups of fluoridated water, her fetus is exposed to a fluoride dose over the CDC's Tolerable Upper Intake Level of fluoride for a 6-month old infant.

The National Research Council warned that "Fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means."

The Neurotoxicology Division of the EPA has "substantial evidence" that fluoride is a developmental neurotoxicant.

Please watch the 3 minute video
about the major new study that concluded:

"Higher levels of maternal urinary fluoride during pregnancy (a proxy for prenatal fluoride exposure)... were associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at 4 and 6-12 years old."

When a pregnant woman drinks fluoridated water, so does her baby
whose fluoride levels average about two-thirds of maternal levels.

Why take the risk? Especially considering:

Timing of fluoride exposure is more important than dose to the nature and severity of disrupted development.

Genetic and other factors affect one's susceptibility to fluoride's adverse systemic effects.

Would you fluoridate your own water?

This graphic reality check.


Fluoridated amniotic fluid: Contaminating a precious bodily fluid.

Pharmacy or faucet? Where does your child get fluoride?

Classic statistical spin: Studies of fluoridated water's effectiveness find only a 1-2% difference in healthy teeth but the data is spun to claim 20-40% less tooth decay.

Fluoridation perpetuated by endorsements: The Public Health Service is officially committed to fluoridation. As its spokesman, the US Surgeon General must endorse fluoridation.

Crazy advice: A trusted women's health association recommends women consume fluoride supplements even though the CDC has good evidence not to.

Fluoride and life decay: Fluoridated water's many correlations with disease and death are better reasons to stop fluoridation than its one correlation with tooth decay was to start it in 1945.

It is unforgivable to overexpose babies in the womb to fluoride,
a neurotoxicant that can interfere with functions of the developing brain.

Ignorance is no longer excusable. Educate and
hold accountable those responsible for fluoridation.
Insist on a pregnancy warning for fluoridated water.

Enable more children to enter the world with
a vibrant and fully functioning brain.

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix This well-documented book (nearly 300 references) explores the biological and ecological connections between fluoride and premature birth, preeclampsia, and impaired neurological development. It presents new research and diverse scientific evidence – compelling reasons for women of child-bearing age to avoid consumption of fluoride in tap water, as well in beverages made in fluoridated cities.

Four years in the making, this concise volume (92 pages) includes three in-depth reports published by the Townsend Letter: The Examiner of Alternative Medicine.

"Peace begins in the womb. The newborn reflects this truth. Order is transferred from cell to tissue, to organs, to organisms, to families, communities, and nations. Unfortunately, when development is violated in the womb... the social and economic impacts are incalculable."
