Fluoride Action Network

TSCA Trial Press Kit

Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), a group of non-profits and individuals petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to end the addition of fluoridation chemicals into drinking water due to fluoride's neurotoxicity. The EPA rejected the petition. In response, the groups are suing the EPA in Federal Court.

The TSCA Trial Press Kit

This Press Kit has been prepared to provide background information on the upcoming trial beginning June 8 in which plaintiffs seek to prohibit the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water systems in the U.S. due to the neurotoxicity of fluoride.

Evidence will be presented at trial that shows:

  • Neurotoxicity is a hazard of fluoride exposure

  • This hazard exists at the doses ingested in fluoridated areas

  • The risk is unreasonable.
