Strong link between fluoridated water and ADHD, according to scientific study

Strong link between fluoridated water and ADHD, according to scientific study | children's literature | Scoop.it
Fluoridated water and the ingestion of fluoride have now been identified as factors in the development of ADHD, according to researchers. A report on this topic was published in Environmental Health, and the study is the first of its kind to closely examine the relationship between ADHD and exposure to fluoridated water.
A fluoride-like chemical called hydrofluosilicic acid has been added to public water supplies for decades in an attempt to help prevent tooth decay in the populations that drink it. The objective was to mimic the effects of natural calcium fluoride. However, the teeth actually require calcium (along with other minerals) for optimal health – NOT fluoride.
ADHD affecting a growing number of children
ADHD, which stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, has become an all too common diagnosis. Over 6 percent of American children are currently being treated for ADHD, with numbers trending upward. The symptoms of ADHD include difficulty in focusing and paying attention, hyperactivity, and problems with impulse control.
The researchers took participants’ socio-economic-status into consideration for the study, and still found fluoridated water to be an environmental risk factor in cases of ADHD. Up until this time, the potential effects of fluoride and fluoridated water had received little to no attention in ADHD research. This was despite an abundance of anecdotal evidence that it could be contributing to the onset of this disorder.
The link revealed: Fluoridated water, ADHD and hypothyroidism
Another recent study out of the UK found a correlation between fluoride and thyroid disease. Malin and Till, the researchers behind the ADHD study, strongly believe ADHD manifests via suppression of the thyroid gland caused by fluoridated water.
The researchers estimate that both adults and children in communities that practice drinking water fluoridation ingest between 0.9 and 3.6 mg/L of fluoride per day from drinking water alone. In pregnant women, fluoride can cross the placenta and accumulate in the infant brain. From there, it can exert neurotoxic effects that negatively impact attention, learning and memory.
The researchers also found that children exposed to water with levels of fluoride at 1.2 – 3 mg/L (higher than the U.S. recommended level) had increased urinary fluoride concentration. This marker is associated with poorer visual-spatial organization, slowed reaction times, and an impairment of the ability to read and write.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, the ingestion of fluoride is also linked with lower IQ numbers.
Crazy city water treatment policy: Fluoridated water is far from safe
Some people believe that the science and research on fluoridation has been ‘settled’ and that fluoridated water is safe to drink. This is clearly not the case. If it took this long to expose the link between fluoride and ADHD, what else hasn’t been thoroughly studied?
The trend of government agencies toward dismissing research that finds fluoridation unsafe instead of protecting citizens is appalling. With fluoridated water and fluoride ingestion now linked with ADHD, hypothyroidism and lowered IQ, continuing the fluoridation of public drinking water is clearly a reckless act. (some might even suggest, criminal!)

Gust MEES's curator insight, March 13, 5:02 PM

Literacy skills help students gain knowledge through reading as well as using media and technology. These skills also help students create knowledge through writing as well as developing media and technology.

Information Literacy

Students need to be able to work effectively with information, using it at all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating). Information literacy involves traditional skills such as reading, researching, and writing; but new ways to read and write have also introduced new skills:

  • Consuming information: The current excess of information requires students to gain new skills in handling it. When most information came through official publications like books, newspapers, magazines, and television shows, students encountered data that had been prepared by professionals. Now, much information is prepared by amateurs. Some of that work is reliable, but much is not. Students must take on the role of the editor, checking and cross-checking information, watching for signs of bias, datedness, and errors. Students need to look at all information as the product of a communication situation, with a sender, subject, purpose, medium, receiver, and context.
  • Producing information: In the past, students were mostly consumers of information. When they produced information, it was largely for a single reader—the teacher—and was produced for a grade. It was therefore not an authentic communication situation, and students felt that writing was a purely academic activity. Now writing is one of the main ways students communicate. It has real-world applications and consequences. Students need to understand that what they write can do great good or great harm in the real world, and that how they write determines how powerful their words are. Students need to take on the role of professional writers, learning to be effective and ethical producers of information.

Media Literacy

Media literacy involves understanding the many ways that information is produced and distributed. The forms of media have exploded in the last decade and new media arrive every day:

Without libraries we are less human and more profoundly alone | Nicola Davies | children's literature | Scoop.it

Nicole Davies writes: "Librarians are far more than stackers and catalogers. They are creative curators of their book collections. They review and renew their flocks of books, adjusting what they have to fit their readers, highlighting certain sections and topics to reflect the world. They are on hand to guide and encourage, to foster relationships between books and people. Subtly, quietly, inexorably, they weave individuals into a community. They make a library shimmer, as if the books were the scales of a dragon flexing as it folds and flies."
