The Intelligence Quotient (IQ) was measured in 512 children, aged 8–13 years, living in two villages in Sihong County, Jiangsu Province, China, differing in the level of fluoride in their drinking water.
In the highfluoride village of Wamiao the mean IQ of 222 children was significantly lower than in the low-fluoride village of Xinhuai where the mean IQ of 290 children was higher.
Higher drinking water fluoride levels were significantly associated with higher rates of mental retardation.
