The Book

Health authorities ignore fetal fluoride exposure. We must not.
The evidence presented in this website validates the need
and right of women to be informed of the potential
risks of drinking fluoridated tap water.

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

When a pregnant woman drinks fluoridated water, so does her baby
whose fluoride levels average about two-thirds of maternal levels.

Based on what is already known, pregnant women
should avoid consumption of fluoridated water

With every 3 cups of fluoridated water a pregnant woman drinks, her fetus receives a fluoride dose over the amount that the FDA says a 5-year-old should not swallow in toothpaste.

With 7 cups, her unborn child receives a dose over the CDC's Tolerable Upper Intake Level of fluoride for a 6-month old infant.

"Fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means." – National Research Council

Fluoride is a "developmental neurotoxicant." – Neurotoxicology Division, EPA

Why take the risk? Especially considering:

It's Not Just the Amount of Fluoride Consumed

Timing of fluoride exposure is more important than dose to the nature and severity of disrupted development.

Genetic and other factors affect one's susceptibility to fluoride's adverse systemic effects.

Would you fluoridate your own water?


Contaminating our most precious bodily fluid: the truth about fluoridated amniotic fluid.

No doses of fluoride from supplements allowed in the months after birth, but high doses of fluoride from water encouraged in the months before birth.

The fluoridation sales pitch of "significantly less tooth decay" is classic statistical spin.

Endorsemental confusion perpetuates fluoridation, and the buck starts with the Surgeon General.

A trusted women's health association gives crazy advice.

It is unforgivable to overexpose babies in the womb to fluoride,
a neurotoxicant that can interfere with functions of the developing brain.

Ignorance is no longer an excuse.
Educate those responsible for fluoridation.
Insist on a pregnancy warning for fluoridated water.

Enable more children to enter the world with
a vibrant and fully functioning brain.

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

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

Available in paperback or in a PDF.

"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."
