The evidence presented in this website validates the need
and right of families to be informed of the potential
risks of consuming fluoride during pregnancy.
Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix
According to safety thresholds for children established by
research and regulatory agencies in the United States,
babies in utero can be overexposed to fluoride.
With every 3 cups of optimally fluoridated tap water a mother drinks,
she consumes 0.5 mg of fluoride. Fetal fluoride levels average two-thirds
of maternal levels, so her baby in the womb receives about 0.3 mg of fluoride.
If a baby weighing less than 6 pounds receives 0.3 mg of fluoride in one day, this dosage exceeds the Tolerable Upper Intake Level beyond which "the risk of adverse effects increases." (Institute of Medicine, 1997)
If a child 3 to 6 years old swallows more than 0.25 mg of fluoride in a pea-sized dab of toothpaste (the most that should be used for brushing says the American Dental Association), the label warns: "Get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away." (FDA, 1997)
A team of researchers found substantial evidence that fluoride is a "developmental neurotoxicant." (EPA Neurotoxicology Division, 2009)
Inform and hold accountable those responsible for adding fluoride to your drinking water. Ignorance is no longer an excuse. To knowingly overexpose babies in the womb to a developmental neurotoxicant is unforgivable. Insist on and litigate if necessary a pregnancy advisory for fluoridated tap water.
Parents have the right to know how much fluoride
their unborn child receives from fluoridated tap water.

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."
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.
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 (94 pages) includes three in-depth reports published by the Townsend Letter: The Examiner of Alternative Medicine.

Thumbs Up review from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
"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."
