Fluoride and reduced Melatonin, Implications for Public health

The U.S National Academies of Medicine and Science in their 2006 report on Fluoride in Drinking water stated:
“Fluoride is likely to cause decreased melatonin production and to have other effects on normal pineal function, which in turn could contribute to a variety of effects in humans”. The National Academies also documented, that reduction in melatonin in humans can result in early sexual maturity in adolescents, increased physiological effects including anxiety disorders, psychiatric disease, sudden death syndrome and a reduction in the ability of the body to fight cancer; [Note: melatonin is a free radical scavenger which helps fight cancer.] [1]

According to the Journal of Psychiatry Ireland has the highest prevalence of depressive disorders in Europe. [2]

The cancer incidence in Ireland is 85% above the European Region [3]

The incidence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in the Republic of Ireland is 300% above that of non fluoridated Northern Ireland. [4]
