Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

This concise volume explores the biological connections between fluoride and adverse pregnancy outcomes. It presents new and diverse scientific evidence (nearly 300 references) for how fluoride can harm mother and child – compelling reasons why women should not drink fluoridated tap water and beverages produced with it.
