The aluminum/fluoride connection maybe? The aluminum link is interesting, it's now in so much stuff, especially cookware. The bulk of pots and pans cheaply (and some not so cheaply) manufactured has a high content of aluminum. Not sure if Amish populations use local water supplies either.

Pharma would be hard to investigate. Some women won't take anything when pregnant, others take over the counter, others take anything. Interesting though, what studies have been conducted to look at that?

Yeah thats interesting about cookware. Teflon is known to cause health issues in certain contexts: https://www.ecowatch.com/teflons-toxic-legacy-dupont-knew-for-decades-it-was-contaminating-wate-1882142514.html

I imagine not many, as pharma will generally not fund studies that could limit profits by proving products unsafe. I imagine in the next few decades there will be many pharma drugs uncovered to be unsafe that were previously thought to be safe. It's just like cigarettes.
