The neurotoxic effects of fluoride are already well established, regardless of how the latest Lancet paper is reviewed. In particular, it is now accepted by a large part of the relevant research community, even if not by PHE, that fluoridation is likely to increase the rate at which residual traces of aluminium in drinking water, left over from conventional water treatment, are able to enter the blood stream from the gut, From there, the aluminium is easily transferred to the brain, where it is a recognised environmental cause of the slow development of dementia.

In a recent highly competent review by Lucija Tomljenovic, at the University of Vancouver, Canada, she wrote (at page 576),
"it is evident that in the presence of fluoride, only trace amounts of Al are needed to produce substantial neuronal injury. Both fluoride and Al when complexed in AlF x appear to be more easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract compared to their ionic forms. In spite of these observations, water fluoridation persists in USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand while most of Europe has abandoned this practice In fluoride-treated water, fluoroaluminates are the prevalent species. The enhanced transport of fluoroaluminates across the GI tract and the BBB , in context to their highly neurotoxic potential, raises significant concerns about the prevalence of these compounds in drinking water of various countries"
(Lucija Tomljenovic. Aluminum and Alzheimer’s Disease: After a Century of Controversy,Is there a Plausible Link? Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease 23 (2011) 567–598.)

The conventional procedure when licensing the use of any medicine for public use is to protect the vulnerable by requiring supervised dosage with a safety factor of ten. Even if the recent work on fluoride neurotoxicity referred to evidence from those exposed to higher levels of fluoride than those permitted by the EC, the supposed 'safety margin' for fluoride is still only aound twice that proven to cause visible (let alone more subtle, internal) damage to children. The most recent work indicates that permitting fluoridation with such inadequate regard to public safety is indisputably of sufficient concern to requi8re the immediate application of the Precautionary Principle. PHE's stubborn refusal to acknowledge ALL of the available high-quality evidence against this practice merely exposes the perversity of governement and its Regulator, the MHRA, to concede that Lord Jauncey's decision back in 1983 that fluoridated water is a medicine. It merely empahsises how far from public accountability these irresponsible organisations have become.

Does HAF have any future demonstrations planned?

No we haven't, Ryan

here's further evidence of the rogue status of Grandjean's egregious attempts to further the IQ nonsense using his Harvard affiliation to lend credence to his claims. The following is a letter from the Deans of the Harvard Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Public Health......the Dean of Public Health being Grandjean's superior:

Dr. Myron Allukian, Jr.
Immediate Past President, American Association for Community Dental Programs Associate Clinical Professor, Harvard School of Dental Medicine

Dear Dr. Allukian:

As Deans of Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine and the Harvard School of Public Health, we continue to support community water fluoridation as an effective and safe public health measure for people of all ages.

Numerous reputable studies over the years have consistently demonstrated that community water fluoridation is safe, effective, and practical. Fluoridation has made an enormous impact on improving the oral health of the American people.

Our country is fortunate to have over 204 million Americans living in fluoridated communities and having access to the health and economic benefits of this vital public health measure.

The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s and other dementias is increasing every year because of the steady growth in the older
population. This number will continue to increase and escalate rapidly in the coming years as the baby boom generation ages.[/EX]

So there's more old people, so more Alzheimer's. Also, as we make strides in other causes of deaths, like heart disease and cancer, the less people die of those, and more people die of Alzheimer's for which there are no good treatments.

Some people have suggested that water fluoridation might be linked to Alzheimer's. Tehy generally fail to realize that water fluoridation is a local thing, and many communities do NOT have water fluoridation. Look at the distribution here:
