The Book

The US Food and Drug Administration ignores fetal fluoride exposure.
We must not.

Fluoride Toothpaste Fetus

When a pregnant woman drinks 3 cups of fluoridated tap water,
her unborn child receives the same amount of fluoride that
a 5-year-old child should not swallow in toothpaste

Fluoride Toothpaste Warning and Children in the Womb

Fluoride toothpaste has a FDA-mandated warning:
"If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing,
get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away

Fluoride Concentration: Water, Toothpaste

"Children under 6 years of age: use a pea-sized amount"
of toothpaste that contains approximately 0.25 mg of fluoride.

Smear and pea-sized amount of toothpaste

That same 0.25 mg dose of fluoride in a dab of toothpaste is also
contained in 1½ cups of tap water optimally fluoridated at 0.7 mg/liter.

When a pregnant woman drinks 3 cups of fluoridated water, she consumes 0.5 mg of fluoride. Fetal fluoride levels are about two-thirds of maternal levels, therefore her unborn child receives about 0.3 mg – more fluoride than in a pea-sized dab of toothpaste.

See Fetal Fluoride Levels, pages 54-55 of
Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

Intentionally adding an EPA-designated "developmental neurotoxicant" to the drinking water that pregnant women are encouraged to drink (more of) is a form of domestic violence – a serious problem America's Founders recognized and provided a Constitutional remedy for in the same clause that protects us from "invasion." (Imagine our response if the Chinese fluoridation chemicals we import were actually added to our drinking water by the Chinese government.)
