The Book

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

When a pregnant woman consumes fluoride, so does her unborn child,
whose blood levels of fluoride average about two-thirds of maternal levels.

Known About Fluoride

Institute of Medicine (1997): If a 12-month old infant consumes 1 mg of fluoride, this dosage exceeds the Tolerable Upper Intake Level, and "the risk of adverse effects increases."

FDA (1997): If a 6-year old child swallows 0.3 mg of fluoride in toothpaste, parents are warned to: "Get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away."

National Research Council (2006): Fluoride has the ability to "interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means."

EPA Neurotoxicology Division (2009): A team of researchers found substantial evidence that fluoride is a "developmental neurotoxicant" in the same category with alcohol, arsenic, bisphenol A, lead, mercury, and nicotine.

National Scientific Council on the Developing Child (2009): It's not just about dose. Most important is "the timing during the developmental process... The immature nervous system of an embryo or fetus is even more vulnerable to toxic exposures than is that of an infant."

Needs to Be Known

Fluoridated tap water contaminates amniotic fluid swallowed by babies in the womb.

Crazy advice from a trusted women's health association: women should consume fluoride supplements even though they are unapproved prescription drugs not shown to be safe or effective.

Prenatal fluoride a risk factor for premature birth, the leading cause of long-term neurological disabilities in children.

States with higher percentages of fluoridated tap water have higher rates of infant mortality, mental retardation, and cancer.

Fluoridated water's many correlations with life decay are better reasons to stop fluoridation than its one correlation with tooth decay was to start it.

Fluoridation 'Science'

Fluoridation is perpetuated by unscientific endorsements.

Studies of fluoridated water's effectiveness claim 20-40% less tooth decay, but the actual data shows only 1-2% difference in healthy teeth.

The CDC Division of Oral Health's tries to explain its irrationale for swallowing fluoride.

The EPA admits that its primary water fluoridation chemical is a water pollutant.

The Public Heath Service based fluoridation on a debunked dental survey from the 1930s.

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix Validating known and growing safety concerns, the recent and diverse scientific evidence presented in this well-documented volume (300 references, mostly PubMed) details the numerous biological, laboratory, and ecological links between prenatal fluoride exposure and adverse pregnancy outcomes – 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.

"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."
