From the USA: Neurobehavioral Issues Increased in Children With Prenatal Fluoride Exposure

Prenatal fluoride exposure is associated with increased neurobehavioral problems, according to a study published online May 20 in JAMA Network Open.

Ashley J. Malin, Ph.D., from the University of Florida in Gainesville, and colleagues examined associations of third-trimester maternal urinary fluoride (MUF) with child neurobehavior at age 3 years in a prospective cohort study. Urine samples archived from 2017 to 2020 and neurobehavioral data assessed from 2020 to 2023 were obtained for a pregnancy cohort, consisting of predominantly Hispanic women residing in Los Angeles.
