TSCA Fluoride Case Kicks Into High Gear

December 31st, 2018

In the Fall of 2019, a federal judge in a U.S. District Court in San Francisco will hear a landmark case on fluoride and decide whether fluoride’s neurotoxicity is an unreasonable risk to the U.S. population. The judge has the ability to force the EPA to ban or further restrict the addition of fluoride to water. The TSCA fluoride lawsuit is perhaps the clearest, most winnable path to ending water fluoridation to date.

Lawsuit Update (Dec 30th, 2018)

“We are leaving no stone unturned. The court will hear the best evidence that’s available on this issue.”  –  Michael Connett, lead attorney on the TSCA fluoride case, giving a detailed update on the progression of the lawsuit.

Lawsuit Background

In November 2016, Fluoride Action Network (FAN), together with a coalition of environmental, medical and health groups served the EPA with a Petition calling on the Agency to ban the addition of fluoridation chemicals to public water supplies due to the risks these chemicals pose to the brain. The Petition was submitted under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) because it authorizes EPA to prohibit the “particular use” of a chemical that presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations. TSCA also gives EPA the authority to prohibit drinking water additives.
