Friday, May 15, 2015 - Following research by Harvard and other institutions that high exposure to fluoride can lower your IQ and wreak havoc on your body, the United States government has finally lowered fluoride levels in drinking water for the first time in 50 years.


The Harvard report was published 3 years ago in the July 20
th edition of the prominent journal Environmental Health Perspectives, a federal government medical journal stemming from the United States National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

The research made it explicitly clear that: “The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.”

The previous standard was to add fluoride to a level of 0.7 parts per million for warmer climates, where people drink more water, to 1.2 parts per million in cooler areas. The new standard is 0.7 everywhere.”

A small step, at best. These levels are still concerning but hopefully signal a slight change in the government’s approach to toxins in the water, food and environment.
