Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix: Prenatal Fluoride and Premature Birth, Preeclampsia, Autism
by John D. MacArthur
Exposure of the fetus to fluoride (mostly from fluoridated water) is associated with many harmful effects including damage to red blood cells, low birth weight and premature birth, cognitive problems and autism, obesity, iron-deficiency anemia, disruption of gut flora, thyroid disorders, hyperactivity, preeclampsia, and placental and vascular calcification. MacArthur has compiled a long list of references to back up his urgent warning: pregnant women should avoid all exposure to fluoride in water and drugs. Thumbs Up.
