Fluoride and Zebrafish – (Danio rerio) + Salmon
Info on Salmon Is Further Down On This Page
Zebra fish are freshwater fish belonging to the minnow
family of the order Cypriniformes – Native to South Asia.
Zebra fish – Danio rerio, are gaining popularity in basic behavioural brain research, behaviour genetics, and in translational studies because they offer a cheap and efficient alternative to rodents and guinea pigs.

The researchers placed Zebra fish embryos
in dishes containing fluoxetine, which
is sold under the brand name
‘Prozac’, for six days…
Biologists at the University of Ottawa have discovered
exposing fish embryos to Prozac affected the
aquatic creatures’ ability to manage
stress for generations, prompting a call for
further research into the lasting effects of this
anti-depressants on humans!

This may be a cause for concern given the high
prescription rates of fluoxetine to pregnant women!

“…Excessive fluoride in natural water ecosystem has the
potential to detrimentally affect thyroid endocrine
system, but little is known of such effects or
underlying mechanisms in fish…“
NOTE: if you have an aquarium and use
fluoridated tap water, remember as
you add more water you will
increase the fluoride concentration
as fluoride the will NOT
evaporate with the water.
…indeed, salmon are unaffected by natural
1 ppm fluoride in ocean water where calcium
is extremely high but are narcotized by industrial
fluoride in soft water at only 0.3 ppm (Damkaer & Dey)
Millions of Salmon have instinctively know this for
thousands of years, that is why they go to so
much trouble to swim up rivers to lay
their eggs – in fluoride free water.
