Fluoride's Impact on Brain, A Focus of Two Conferences
Date:7/31/2008

NEW YORK, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- New science indicating fluoride's dangers to the brain and other organs will be presented by prominent fluoride research scientists during back-to-back conferences of the International Society for Fluoride Research (ISFR) and the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) in Toronto August 7-11.

According to ISFR conference organizer, Dr. Hardy Limeback, "Our conference features experts who researched the dangers that fluoride poses to human health. Our keynote speaker, Dr. A.K. Susheela, probably knows more about this subject than any other living scientist. It is important that officials who promote water fluoridation hear what she and others have to say."

The latest issue of ISFR's journal, Fluoride, published 12 newly-translated Chinese studies, which report fluoride's effects on the brain, including the lowering of IQ in children. These and other brain studies will be reviewed at both conferences.

According to FAN Executive Director Dr. Paul Connett, "We had the Chinese studies translated because we believe they are critically important to the fluoridation debate. It is hard to believe that any parent would allow their children to drink fluoridated water when it could damage their brains."

Coupled with these conferences, the Toronto-based Citizens for a Safe Environment (CSE) will host two public meetings with FAN in downtown Toronto on Monday, August 11.

According to CSE director Karen Buck, "These meetings will give the public information they don't get from our government or dental organizations. In the afternoon, a panel will address the question of whether Toronto should stop fluoridating its water. In the evening experts will explain fluoride's dangers to health."

At all three events, Dr. Vyvyan Howard, an infant and fetal pathologist, and president of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, will be presenting a major review of studies on fluoride's brain effects, including the translated Chinese studies.

Recently, Health Canada recommended that fluoride levels be lowered in water supplies, children's toothpaste and infant formula.

"The best way to lower children's fluoride intake is to stop fluoridation," says Connett. "It makes no sense to prescribe fluoride drugs to children via the water supply at levels which are between 150 and 250 times higher than the level in mothers' milk."
