Drinking fluoride water during pregnancy has an effect on children’s IQ, a research in Canada has revealed. Research revealed that the women who drank fluoride water during pregnancy had lower IQ scores than children whose mothers lived in cities without fluoride. Although experts associated with this research say that this study does certainly cause anxiety but there is nothing to panic in it.
Explain that there is a risk of fluoride in tap water more than bottle water. There is not much risk of fluoride after the birth of children, but during pregnancy. In fact, the fetus is more sensitive to harmful elements present in the atmosphere. In this regard, pregnant women should take special care of water.
However fluoride protects teeth from cavities and many toothpastes also contain fluoride. Naturally fluoride is found in small amounts in normal water and sea water, tree leaves.
