Scientists Conclude Fluoride Causes Hypothyroidism Leading To Depression, Weight Gain, and Worse…


Two damning studies on the effects of fluoride in our water have been released in the hope that people will wake up to this real problem.

Researchers at the University of Kent are the latest establishment to have studied this growing problem.

The extensive study involved them looking at data from nearly every single medical practice in England, and they found that fluoride may be increasing the risk for hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, a condition in which the thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormones, resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, obesity and depression.

The study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, included the largest population ever to be analysed in relation to fluoride consumption.

Data was collected from 99% of the 8,020 general medical practices in England, and the results showed locations with fluoridated water were 30 percent more likely to have high levels of hypothyroidism, compared to areas with low, natural levels of the chemical in the water.

According to The Telegraph, this means that as many as 15,000 people could be suffering from depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles, which could be cured if the fluoride problem was solved.

“Overall, there were 9 percent more cases of underactive thyroid in fluoridated places,” reports Newsweek,

Trevor Sheldon, a medical researcher and dean of the Hill York Medical School who has published numerous studies in this field said “The study is an important one because it is large enough to detect differences of potential significance to the health of the population,”

Sheldon has changed his stance on fluoride, in the past he supported it, but now admits that the “case for general water fluoridation” is no longer clear.

To offset this study, shockingly a Public Health England’s report states that “there is no evidence of harm to health in fluoridated areas,” and no differences were found between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas in regard to rates of hip fractures, osteosarcoma, cancers overall and Down’s syndrome birth, although these are different to the illnesses that the University of Kent was focused on.

The high levels of hyperthyroidism has been dubbed “concerning for people living in those areas.”
The study’s lead author Stephen Peckham said:

“The difference between the West Midlands, which fluoridates, and Manchester, which doesn’t was particularly striking. There were nearly double the number of cases in Manchester.”

  1. This shouldn’t surprise people. The dramatic rise in hypothyroidism (esp the autoimmune form) seen mostly in 1st world countries over the last 50 or so coincides with the widespread practice of adding fluoride to public water systems.
    What’s worse is the form of fluoride that is used is a KNOWN toxic waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry called fluorosilicic (hydrofluorosilicic) acid. The substance is scrubbed off the inside of industrial phosphate fertilizer smoke stacks and then sold to municipalities to add to their public water systems instead of being properly disposed of per toxic waste disposal laws by the companies who sell it. Furthermore, the barrels containing this poison arrive at municipal yards clearly labeled ‘Hazardous Waste’ yet, the public is expected to simply accept & meekly comply with ingesting this poison on a daily basis via drinking & cooking in it in addition to bathing our families & pets in it and washing our clothes, yards & gardens in it. The public is expected to accept & comply literally swimming in poison because the gov’t says so – disgusting:-((( Just say NO!!!!!! A few years ago some concerned citizens gathered together and presented overwhelmingly damning evidence to city council in the city of Windsor, Ontario, Canada & successfully got this harmful municipal practice ended. If we can do it, so can you! As noted US anthropologist, Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
