Researchers from the University of Kent, a public research university based in the United Kingdom, conducted a recent groundbreaking study measuring the health effects caused by adding fluoride to the public’s water. 

While many are still skeptical the added chemical contributes to any negative health effects, this is one of three reputable findings in recent years proving that it does

After studying data obtained from nearly every medical practice in England, scientists found that fluoride may be increasing the risk for hypothyroidism, also known as ‘underactive thyroid’. This condition in which the thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormones results in symptoms such as fatigue, obesity and depression.
