"Peace begins in the womb. The newborn reflects this truth.
Order is transferred from cell to tissue, to organs,
to organisms, to families, communities, and nations.
Unfortunately, when development is violated in the womb...
the social and economic impacts are incalculable."
– Theo Colborn, author of Our Stolen Future

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix

John D. MacArthur's new book includes his three well-documented
reports on fluoride and pregnancy published in the Townsend Letter:
• Fluoride, Premature Birth and Impaired Neurodevelopment
• Placental Fluorosis: Fluoride and Preeclampsia
• Prenatal Fluoride and Autism

"For those who have felt squeamish about resisting the pro-fluoride lobby, MacArthur's article cites numerous studies showing the relationship between fluoride bioaccumulation and adverse effects on human health. MacArthur's previous articles in the Townsend Letter and this article will serve well when supporting antifluoridation efforts." – Jonathan Collin, MD, Publisher

John D. MacArthur writes about practical neuroscience. He researched and wrote the "The Human Brain" section for the Franklin Institute Science Museum (now archived) whose dozens of reports are published in Mind Over Gray Matter: Practical Neuroscience from the Decade of the Brain.

All six of John's reports published in the Townsend Letter
are available at HighBeam Research, including
these three neuroscience reports:

Too Much Copper, Too Little Zinc, and Cognitive Deterioration in Alzheimer's Disease
Co-written with George J. Brewer, MD
Inorganic copper from drinking water and multivitamin supplements may be a causal factor in the growing prevalence of Alzheimer's disease. Zinc deficiency appears to be another contributor. Preventive strategies are offered.

Overdosed: Fluoride, Copper and Alzheimer's Disease
Minimizing ingestion of these two common substances may prove to be a simple and effective way to help prevent Alzheimer's disease.

Cell Phones and the Brain: How Electricity Affects Biology
This comprehensive report reviews evidence that shows how electromagnetic fields interact with biological processes: by increasing free radicals; by activating the stress response; and by altering enzyme reactions.
