FAN’S Other Little Gold Mine

Fluoride Action Network | Bulletin | December 19, 2017

Most of our supporters are very familiar with the fact that FAN maintains a fabulous health data base which can be easily accessed with our StudyTracker, but many may be less aware of the gold mine of news articles, reports, and in-depth analysis for issues on “everything  fluoride.” This is Ellen’s baby. Every day she tracks the news items on fluoride and then files the items in several different places. Today, in this bulletin Ellen provides a little tour of this “gold mine” of “everything fluoride.” But first here is an update on our fundraiser.


Our current totals at Dec 19 morning stand at $61,011 from 256 donors.

If you have been holding back this is the day to make your contribution. Thanks to a super angel the next $2,000 will be doubled and if we reach $70,000 by midnight tonight ET (Dec 19) we will earn another $2,000 and when we pass 300 donors another $1000 – AND –the 300th donor will receive a free copy of one of my books (The Case Against Fluoride or the Zero Waste Solution) or a premium of your choice of equal value.

You can follow our progress on our homepage www.FluorideALERT.org (masthead #1) for the totals.  See all of the exciting gifts we have available (with photos) here.
