This article points to fluoride as having negative effects on the thyroid gland that could lead to depression and weight gain. It also mentions how fluoride can contribute to lower IQ scores. The truly compelling thing about this particular study is that it contains controls for socioeconomic status. This means that the results are already adjusted for income levels and it still shows that as much as 74% of Americans are effected by fluoridated water.
“The U.S. is one of the most widely fluoridated countries in the world”
