Memes to Use

Comparing a state's percentage of fluoridated water with its infant and neonatal death rates reveals that the more-fluoridated states have 9 to 19% greater infant mortality rates than the less-fluoridated states:

From the Afterword of Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

"One third (36%) of infant deaths were due to preterm-related causes". – CDC

Prenatal fluoride is a significant risk factor for preterm birth. The work of A.K. Susheela, the leading expert on the connection between fluoride, anemia, and preterm birth is discussed in Chapter 1 of Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix. See pages 10-12:

"There is now ample scientific evidence to support the fact that ingestion of
fluoride prevents biosynthesis of hemoglobin, leading to anemia."

Risk of Maternal Death Doubled in Pregnant Women with AnemiaThe Lancet Global Health (May 2018)

"Excessive fluoride consumption leads to accelerated red blood cell death and Anemia" – Environmental Geochemistry and Health (2016)

More Women in the US Die from Pregnancy Complications
Than in Any Other Developed Country

Preeclampsia and eclampsia are the second leading cause of pregnancy-related deaths for mothers 35 to 44 years old, and the third leading cause for ages 20 to 24. – "Building U.S. Capacity to Review and Prevent Maternal Deaths" (2018) Figure 6

Preeclampsia and dental fluorosis have the same key subcellular mechanism of pathophysiology, as discussed in "Placental Fluorosis," Chapter 2 of the book. See pages 32-33.

Preterm Birth and African Americans

The preterm birth rate among African-American women was
about 50% higher
than the rate among white women. – CDC

The CDC has long known that fluoride's adverse
effects disproportionally affect African Americans:

"Fluorosis was more severe among non-Hispanic black children
than among non-Hispanic white or Mexican-American children." CDC

Dental fluorosis is visible proof of susceptibility to systemic fluoride toxicity.

Water Fluoridation: an Environmental Justice Issue
Current data show that water fluoridation disproportionately harms low-income and minority communities. In response to this data, a growing number of civil rights advocates have begun calling for a moratorium on fluoridation programs.
