Fluoride was used during the Second World War in the concentration camps in Germany. It was found that this chemical increased compliance and in general, made prisoners docile. Today, there are Western countries who have fluoride in their water in some areas, so it is worth taking the time to have a look at some of the below links so you can do your own research and make your own findings.
Research, clink on HYDROFLUOSILICIC ACID picture to enlarge.
As of 2015, there have been a total of 52 human studies to determine the link between fluoride and Intelligence levels (IQ). In a whopping 45 of these studies the outcome has been that exposure to fluoride reduces IQ and can impair memory capacity and learning. These studies in total have included 11000 children which clearly show that exposure in early years can damage the developing brain.
Humans have long known that fluoride is toxic and it is why we use it in many pesticides and why organizations like the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) require poison warnings to be labelled on toothpastes that contain fluoride.
Some of the health issues that can arise from fluoride ingestion include:
- Thyroid Disease
- Gastric Ailments
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Skeletal Fluorosis
- Dental Fluorosis
- Bone Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
Tooth Decay & Fluoride Myth
In the 50s, it was believed that fluoride was a nutrient needed for good health. The case was made by dentists that children needed to ingest it in order to develop healthy teeth, in a similar way a deficiency in vitamin C can cause scurvy. It is a false theory and it bears little difference on whether your teeth will develop cavities or not.
More recent research has shown that topical application of fluoride can be of benefit to teeth, however even if you agree with this research the reasoning to put fluoride in a communities drinking water is now invalid.
Dental Fluorosis (pictured right) is by far a more common issue which will occur with ingesting fluoride rather than prevention of tooth decay. In fact, it is even more alarming when you consider how much toothpaste children ingest due to the sweetening of children's toothpaste in a bid to ensure they brush their teeth twice a day.

Did Hitler really put fluoride in the water at concentration camps? If so why do we put it in our water?
Quote from Answer: “Yes, fluoride was used in Nazi Concentration camps and the gulags in Siberia to make prisoners docile and easier to control. It is also absorbed through the skin when bathing, showering, or swimming in fluoridated water. You absorb through the tissues of your mouth when brushing your teeth. You don't have to swallow it. Cooking with fluoride in water concentrates it in food and beverages. You can't cook it out. Only 50% of it can be excreted by the body so it is a cumulative toxin leading to many health problems. Twenty-four studies have also shown it lowers IQ's in children.”

Researched completed meta analysis of 27 studies on the effects of fluoride on IQ. Results showed that children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores in comparison to children in low to no fluoride areas.
