Document, Report, or Other Product Information
Title: Draft NTP Monograph on the State of the Science on Fluoride and Neurodevelopment and Cognitive Health Effects
Subject: The overall objective of this evaluation was to conduct a systematic review of published literature concerning the potential for exposure to fluoride to affect neurodevelopment and cognition. The review only addresses whether exposure to fluoride from any source could present a potential hazard (i.e., has the potential to cause harm, at any exposure level, including exposures that are higher than those typically encountered in the United States). Benefits of fluoride with respect to oral health are acknowledged but not addressed in this monograph.
Purpose (e.g., abstract): This letter review to be initiated in fall 2021 is to conduct external peer review of the draft NTP Monograph on the State of the Science on Fluoride and Neurodevelopment and Cognitive Health Effects.
