Malin and Till, Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association, Environmental Health  Feb 27, 2015
ABSTRACT (provisional) Background Epidemiological and animal-based studies have suggested that prenatal and postnatal fluoride exposure has adverse effects on neurodevelopment. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between exposure
Peckham, Lowery and Spencer, Are fluoride levels in drinking water associated with hypothyroidism prevalence in England? A large observational study of GP practice data and fluoride levels in drinking water  Jan 18, 2015
ABSTRACT Background While previous research has suggested that there is an association between fluoride ingestion and the incidence of hypothyroidism, few population level studies have been undertaken. In England, approximately 10% of the populat
Ko and Thiessen, A Critique of Recent Economic Evaluations of Community Water Fluoridation, International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health  Dec 12, 2014
ABSTRACT Background:  Although community water fluoridation (CWF) results in a range of potential contaminant exposures, little attention has been given to many of the possible impacts. A central argument for CWF is its cost-effectiveness. The U.
