Is Your Drinking Water Making You Dumb?

While researchers have not devoted much time to studying the effects of fluoridated water on adults, many studies to date have concluded that drinking water containing fluoride can indeed damage the brains of children.

A recent study out of Harvard University, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), concluded that children who drink highly fluoridated water demonstrate significantly lower IQ scores than those who live in low-fluoride areas. As studies like this and many others have shown, fluoride exposure creates problems in proper brain and nervous system formation and cognitive development during early childhood.

Fluoridation of tap water started back in the mid-1940s in an effort to prevent or reverse tooth decay, so baby boomers and generations following them have likely been exposed to significant amounts of potentially toxic fluoride.

To make matters worse, fluoride is not the only brain toxin we are exposed to. And clearly, children are not the only ones at risk for cognitive issues. An article in The New York Times notes that 10%-20% of Americans over 65 experience mild cognitive impairment. Every year, over a million new cases of adult-onset cognitive impairments are diagnosed in the United States.

A study in the British Medical Journal tracked 5,000 men and 2,000 women ages 45 to 70 for 10 years. The shocking finding: Cognitive decline starts as early as age 45.

But there’s some good news. Highly regarded former neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., has helped prepare a complimentary video presentation detailing his simple strategies to help you combat age-related memory and brain problems.

Recently Dr. Blaylock left a thriving neurosurgery practice to devote his full attention to holistic and nutritional studies and research. In the video, he will show you how to stay mentally alert and reduce memory loss as you age with a combination of daily activities and by ingesting certain nutrients to support brain function.

In Four Easy Ways to Keep Your Mind Sharp, you will discover some of Dr. Blaylock’s best tips on helping you to maintain your cognitive health as you get older. Plus, he reveals little-known information about several clinically proven “brain boosters” that can help optimize your memory and mental functions well into your 60s, 70s, even 80s — and beyond.
