Watch an enlightening conversation between legal luminaries Michael Connett and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. , which highlights some of the more interesting twists and turns in this groundbreaking water fluoridation trial against the EPA.

The Fluoridation Trial: Science 4, EPA 0

The fluoridation trial is going INCREDIBLY well. Our four main scientists, Phillippe Grandjean, Howard Hu, Bruce Lanphear and Kathleen Thiessen are knocking the ball out of the park. The score so far: Science 4, EPA 0.

Fluoridation’s Neurotoxicity

There is now no question that fluoride is neurotoxic, damaging the brain and central nervous system, as documented by hundreds of recent studies. It can not be declared safe.

Risks to Children from Water Fluoridation—One Dose Does Not Fit All

Fluoridation is the addition of an industrial compound to the public drinking water for the purpose of altering the consumer’s oral health. Municipalities that add fluoride to their water supplies do so based on a “one dose fits all” approach.  This blanket approach fails to address the smaller size of infants and children and the larger proportions of water and other fluoridated beverages they drink.

The World-Wide Movement Against Water Fluoridation

In stark contrast to the Center for Disease Control’s claim that fluoridation is one of the top ten public health achievements of the 20th century, it is one of the most widely rejected health interventions in the world. Out of 196 nations, only 24 have any fluoridation, and only 10, like the U.S., for more […]

U.S. Water Fluoridation: A Forced Experiment that Needs to End

The United States stands almost entirely alone among developed nations in adding industrial silicofluorides to its drinking water—imposing the community-wide measure without informed consent. Globally, roughly 5% of the population consumes chemically fluoridated water, but more people in the U.S. drink fluoride-adulterated water than in all other countries combined.

‘Our Daily Dose’: Film Exposes How Fluoridated Water Harms Children

Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert lays out the dangers of water fluoridation, highlighting the most current research and interviewing top-tier doctors, activists, and attorneys close to the issue.

Experts Confirm Extremely Low Levels of Fluoride Causes IQ Loss in Children

A landmark study by Grandjean, et al., confirms “fluoride is a developmental neurotoxicant … and should inspire a revision of water-fluoride recommendations aimed at protecting pregnant women and young children.”

Babies Exposed to Higher Levels of Fluoride Score Lower on IQ Tests

A new systematic review of all published studies evaluating the potential neurotoxicity of fluoride found the chemical is a “cognitive developmental hazard to humans.”

Children’s Health Defense Launches Hawaii Chapter

CHD’s newest chapter will advocate for state-level policies to protect children from unsafe vaccines, 5G wireless, water fluoridation and other exposures that harm children’s health.

Children’s Health Defense Announces The Launch of Hawaii Chapter  

Press Release December 18, 2020 For immediate release    Washington, DC — Non-profit advocacy organization Children’s Health Defense (CHD) announced today the launch of its latest chapter, CHD Hawaii. Like CHD’s other chapters, CHD-Hawaii will provide a powerful, unified voice for advocates to enhance the collective ability to strengthen support of key issues, disseminate vitally […]

Fluoride in Drinking Water May Harm Children, Scientific Evidence Mounts

Scientists are coming together to raise the alarm about fluoridated drinking water. The data show fluoride consumed from drinking water may have adverse neurological health impacts — especially among children.

Fluoride Is Toxic to Developing Brains, New Studies Find

Debate on fluoridation of drinking water reignited as new studies find fluoride is toxic to the developing brain.

Fluoride Toxicity Trial Update

The landmark federal trial pitting Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and others against the US EPA over water fluoridation came to a dramatic turning point Wednesday when, after both sides had completed their summary statements, the federal judge surprised everyone by recognizing the key plank in the plaintiffs’ case and undermining the key argument in the EPA’s case.

What’s in Children’s Drinking Water? Far Too Often, Something Neurotoxic

A review of reports collected from close to 50,000 water companies and utilities nationwide found over 250 tap water contaminants and identified studies linking many of these chemicals to cancer; brain and nervous system damage; fetal toxicity; impaired fertility; and hormone disruption.

Washington State Dept. of Health FOI Response: Zero Fluoride / Pregnancy Studies To Suggest Safety Re: Childhood IQ or ADHD

Six deans of U of Washington Health Sciences schools insisted fluoridation is a safe and effective public health measure “for people of all ages”, prompting a WA State Dept of Health FOI request for any peer reviewed studies to suggest that fluoride exposure during pregnancy is safe with respect to childhood IQ or ADHD. Thus far there are none.

More Evidence that Fluoride Lowers IQ: Will the CDC Keep Ignoring It?

In the United States and Canada, exposure to fluoride is widespread and comes primarily through ingestion of fluoridated water supplied by community water systems. Although some U.S. residents consume drinking water that is fluoride-free, the majority of Americans served by community utilities—an estimated 74%—receive water to which industrial fluoride compounds have been added.

Chlorpyrifos: Playing Pesticide Politics with Children’s Health

Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killing organophosphate. Organophosphates trace their roots back to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents” that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarin.

Warning: Don’t Swallow The Toothpaste…Even Though it Tastes Like Candy

Fluoride is not essential for human growth and development, and it has been identified as one of 12 industrial chemicals known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in humans. Concerns have been raised about potential associations between fluoride and health risks such as cancer, bone fractures, musculoskeletal effects, reproductive and developmental effects, neurotoxicity and neurobehavioral effects, and effects on other organ systems.


Fluoride is an element that occurs naturally in the environment, however it is also produced synthetically for use in toothpaste and mouthwashes. Due to a long history of corporate incentives and cherry-picked studies that dates back to the 50s, fluoride was approved to become an additive in American drinking  water “to promote strong teeth.” Approximately 300 studies, as evidenced below, demonstrate fluoride is a neurotoxin, linking fluoride exposures to reduced intelligence. Studies have also found associations with arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocrine disruption, gastrointestinal effects, and infertility. More recent studies have found a toxic synergy between fluoride and aluminum. From 2000 to 2004, 125 communities in 36 states adopted fluoridation of their municipal water supplies, however other cities, such as College Station, Texas and Watsonville, California, have overturned fluoridation mandates. Only about 2% of people receive artificially fluoridated water in Europe, with countries like the Netherlands and Italy rejecting the additive. Fluoridation is banned in China, due to cases of increased dental fluorosis from naturally occurring fluoride in their water supply.
