As the evidence for fluoride’s neurotoxicity gets stronger and stronger, those who are determined to protect the outdated practice of water fluoridation at all costs (which includes the mental well-being of the next generation) are most scared of one thing. That is the establishment of a very clear relationship between the severity of dental fluorosis (usually classified as very mild, mild, moderate, or severe), which they have never denied is caused by exposure to fluoride during the development of child’s permanent teeth, and the loss of a specific number of IQ points. This relationship is especially important for the fluorosis on the early front teeth, which are caused during the earliest months of life, the period in which damage to the brain appears to be most severe.

With millions of children being impacted by dental fluorosis in the USA and other fluoridated countries, such a finding would horrify millions of parents as they connect the dots. Of course fluoridation promoters will argue that there are several other sources of fluoride other than fluoridated tap water, but most authorities (including the US EPA) have accepted that fluoridated water is the major source. Even so, this must also worry the giant toothpaste manufacturers.

A number of IQ studies have indeed probed this and it is only a matter of time before scientists quantify this relationship.  Meanwhile, FAN will continue to track, analyze, and share all IQ studies in 2022, and will continue to give a voice to those who have been harmed by fluoride and fluoridation in the US and around the world.

Fundraiser Update

Here is an update on our very successful fundraising on Christmas Eve and Day, and exiting new challenges.

We started Dec 3 with $51,211 from 403 donors and we ended Dec 25 on $74,862 from 625 donors, thus exceeding by wide margins both our mini-goals of $50,000 from 500 donors.

Now we begin our most daunting (impossible?) challenge of trying to reach $150,000 from 1500 donors by midnight PT Dec 31. Fortunately for us we will have the help of a major new benefactor (SuperAngel).

He will double every donation you make until we reach $95,000! In addition, recognizing how important a large number of small donors is, he will reward these milestones of donor totals as follows:

At the 650 donor milestone he will donate $1300

At the 700 donor …………………………$1400

At the 750 donor …………………………$1500

So once again the challenge we pass on to all our wonderful supporters is to get your friends, colleagues, and family members to make small donations (say $10, or perhaps donate $5 in the name of each child or grandchild) towards FAN’s important mission to end fluoridation worldwide. Not only do these small donations add up but they impress small foundations with how much active support we have.

AND as you beat the bushes for that support you will be educating more and more people about the unnecessary outrage being perpetuated on the next generation of children via the public water supply!

Then, of course, as we approach Dec 31 we would remind potential large donors that all donations to FAN are tax-deductible.

So small or large, please help to pull off the impossible!

Thank you,

Paul Connett
Executive Director
