At the end of the trial in July, the judge urged the EPA to independently re-assess the hazard posed by fluoridation chemicals. At the last status hearing in August, the EPA claimed that they “didn’t have the resources to do a risk assessment,” and were going to let the court record stand without taking any further action. The judge continued to insist the EPA reconsider their position, and also said he wanted to review the updated National Toxicology Program’s review of fluoride’s neurotoxicity, which was released this October.
On Thursday, the judge will see if the EPA has made any progress in re-evaluating fluoride’s safety, or if FAN intends to submit an updated TSCA petition that the EPA will have no choice but to assess over a 90-day period.
The proceeding will be open for public viewing on Zoom. Below is the sign in information provided by the judge to watch or listen to his meetings.
The August status hearing started a little later than the original time specified, so if you sign in and find you’re watching another hearing, stay on and wait for our case’s turn on the docket.
