What is perhaps even more astounding is the NRC’s complete failure to disclose/discuss that fluoride has been used in hundreds of laboratory investigations specifically as a thyroid-stimulating-hormone (TSH) analogue [=> acts like TSH].
Instead, the NRC writes:
In summary, evidence of several types indicates that fluoride affects normal endocrine function or response; the effects of the fluoride-induced changes vary in degree and kind in different individuals. Fluoride is therefore an endocrine disruptor in the broad sense of altering normal endocrine function or response, although probably not in the sense of mimicking a normal hormone .
