New Landmark Study: ‘No Evidence’ Water Fluoridation Prevents Cavities

A new and highly-needed scientific review has found that there’s no real evidence linking water fluoridation with cavity prevention, further proving that the IQ-damaging substance known as sodium fluoride truly does not have a place in our water supply.

It was back in 2012 that I shared with you the results from a major Harvard study that revealed the dark relationship between IQ levels and sodium fluoride consumption. Specifically, the Harvard researchers detailed the fact that children who lived in areas with high sodium fluoride content had ‘significantly lower’ IQ than those in areas with less added fluoride content. What’s more, this research was published in a federal government medical journal known as Environmental Health Perspectives.

Remember, this was back in 2012. So why has almost nothing changed? A particularly valid question when we note that in 2011, the government actually called for ‘lower fluoride levels’ amid a growing body of research that it was negatively affecting the health of Americans.

Fast forward to April of 2015, and finally the federal government decides to lower fluoride levels for the first time in 50 years. A monumental event in the history of water fluoridation and public health.

Now, in June of 2015, another landmark study has hit: sodium fluoride in the water supply isn’t even preventing cavities! Now is the time to make this a well-known study, instead of a footnote buried within the latest news feed. After all, it’s huge news that this information is finally being displayed by the mainstream media after years of anti-fluoride activists enduring the label ‘conspiracy theorist.’


Let’s look at the piece by Newsweek entitled “Fluoridation May Not Prevent Cavities, Scientific Review Shows,” which states:

“The review identified only three studies since 1975—of sufficient quality to be included—that addressed the effectiveness of fluoridation on tooth decay in the population at large. These papers determined that fluoridation does not reduce cavities to a statistically significant degree in permanent teeth, says study co-author Anne-Marie Glenny, a health science researcher at Manchester University in the United Kingdom. The authors found only seven other studies worthy of inclusion dating prior to 1975.”

Thomas Zoeller, a scientist at UMass-Amherst who played a role in the study, breaks it down:

“I had assumed because of everything I’d heard that water fluoridation reduces cavities but I was completely amazed by the lack of evidence,” he says. “My prior view was completely reversed.”

The fact is that the science is quite clear: true independent scientists that study the safety and effectiveness of sodium fluoride in the water supply simply cannot believe the lack of both safety and effectiveness. This latest study is just another example of how sodium fluoride’s so-called ‘effectiveness’ in the water supply is not based on solid scientific reasoning, but rather political pressure to assert the ‘cavity-preventing’ benefits of water fluoridation.

These ‘benefits,’ however, never existed when it comes to water fluoridation. What does come from adding sodium fluoride into our water is a much more dangerous result: an attack on human IQ and overall health.
