A new study out of the UK shows once again just how dangerous water fluoridation is.

This time, a look at 98 percent of GP practices found that high rates of underactive thyroid were 30 percent more likely to show up in areas with, surprise surprise, the greatest degree of water fluoridation.

Via The Telegraph:

…new research from the University of Kent suggests that there is a spike in the number of cases of underactive thyroid in high fluoride areas such as the West Midlands and the North East of England…

It could mean that up to 15,000 people are suffering needlessly from thyroid problems which can cause depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles.

And that, of course, is just the number of people in those areas studied.

Obviously, this is a dangerous and underestimated practice.

If weight gain and depression fit the bill, it might help to explain why the United States – the most fluoridated nation on the planet – is also the world’s most obese as well as the world’s most medicated country, with anti-depressants prescribed more than any other drug. Of course, there are many other factors at play as well.

Underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, is a condition where your thyroid doesn’t produce enough hormone. Your thyroid regulates all sorts of processes in your body, including your metabolism, your body temperature, and even your heartbeat. If your thyroid isn’t working properly, your whole body slows down, resulting in a bevy of other health problems the least of which is actually weight gain and fatigue.
