    Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offspring

    https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jam...rticle/2748634

    JAMA
    Association Between Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offspring in Canada


    Conclusions and Relevance In this study, maternal exposure to higher levels of fluoride during pregnancy was associated with lower IQ scores in children aged 3 to 4 years. These findings indicate the possible need to reduce fluoride intake during pregnancy.
    It's a long winded study so I just posted a link and the conclusion.

    Interesting BUT my theory is that people are just getting dumber. As for the study there are certain parts of the country that have natural high levels of fluoride. If the conclusions are true then those area should be more backward than the rest of the country. I wonder if they specifically checked & compared those areas?

    Yes, people really are getting DUMBER. Why? That's up for debate. But one look at the prog's and Democrat Party, and there can be only one conclusion.

    I could but I don't know where those areas of the country are. I know that there's one somewhere close to Austin Tx but that's all.
