Lancet Deems Fluoride a Neurotoxin.

In a review appearing in the March 2014 issue of Lancet Neurology entitled, "Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity," the authors lay out existing evidence that has categorized fluoride as a newly identified industrial chemical known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in human beings.
Neurotoxins are capable of causing widespread brain disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and learning disabilities - a host of untreatable and often permanently damaging disorders - and yet fluoride is added to drinking water and products such as toothpaste. 

The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed to hear arguments in the fluoride harm case of Nemphos v. Nestle Waters. It is just the beginning of a contentious issue sure to last for decades.
