While the internet is a wonderful resource, it’s also a place where untruths can thrive and spread. One such fiction concerns the so-called “Harvard studies” allegedly proving that fluoride lowers IQ in children.
In this video, Dr. Brittany Seymour of the Harvard School of Dental Health — Dr. Shepherd’s alma mater — explains why the research this claim is based on does not support the popular online myth.
She also discusses why fluoride is so critically important to your and your children’s teeth.
