Debunking Unreliable Claims: The “Harvard study”
Dr Brittany Seymour, assistant professor in oral health policy and epidemiology at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, debunks unreliable claims about water fluoridation in this new video, providing much-needed information and context to the often misrepresented Harvard Study on fluoridation and children’s IQ.
Critics of water fluoridation have successfully used the internet to circulate misleading conclusions about 27 studies that were evaluated in 2012 by researchers affiliated with Harvard. These studies, nearly all of them from China, explored whether there were associations between fluoride and children’s IQ scores. Watch the video, produced by the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, for a brief background on these studies and clarification of the evidence.
