Fluoride and Zebrafish – (Danio rerio) + Salmon
” Water Fleas “
[ 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.
Note: Item ‘D’ is about Prozac

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 !
EFFECT OF EXPOSURE TO FLUORIDE ON
BONE DEVELOPMENT OF ZEBRA FISH

See Abstract – Number 18
“…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 does 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.

THIS IS A GREAT VIDEO
A little slow to start,
but please stay with it !
The science on fluoridation:
its effect on salmon & the environment,
efficacy for dental health, and safety
for human consumption.
This professional video explains a lot !
