“Fluoride and the Brain” Now Available on DVD

In less than two weeks the US EPA will be ruling on our petition to ban the intentional addition of fluoride chemicals to the drinking water under provisions in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This petition was triggered by the ever-increasing number of studies that indicate that fluoride is neurotoxic and has the potential to lower IQ in children.

FAN was joined by other national groups in lodging this petition, including Food and Water Watch; Organic Consumers Association (OCA); International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT); American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM); Moms Against Fluoridation; and individuals.

You can access the petition online.

The petition was written by Michael Connett, JD.  Michael is also featured in a new video “Fluoride and the Brain.” In this he explains that fluoride’s ability to lower IQ in children is just the tip of an iceberg of over 300 animal and human studies that indicate that fluoride is neurotoxic.

Ellen and I have just received from Jay Sanders–FAN’s Education & Outreach Director–hard copies of the DVD. Jay has done a wonderful job! The packaging looks very professional and attractive. The film has been beautifully edited – and has excellent B-roll shots.

Now our job is to get as many people to watch this as we possibly can.

We are offering multiple copies at a very reasonable rates, and it’s worth every penny. It may even turn out to be a key “document” in sounding alarm bells on this well-intentioned but disastrous practice. The last children that need their IQ lowered are children from low-income families – precisely those targeted by water fluoridation!

The tape can also be watched online but we would like to get out as many hard copies as we can – especially to dentists and doctors who are – in the main – oblivious of the damage that their promotion of this practice is causing. They need to know and this tape would be a gentle way of opening their eyes and to allow their consciences to do the rest.

February’s Teleconference: “Inroads to Influence”

Register today for this month’s International Fluoride Free Teleconference, which will be held this Saturday, February 11th at 5pm (U.S. Eastern time).  The call entitled Inroads to Influence: Mapping Your Fluoridation Jurisdiction will feature FAN’s Campaign Director, Stuart Cooper, discussing the first step in initiating a fluoride-free campaign.  Before creating a campaign strategy, you need to know the rules of the game so-to-speak, including who provides your drinking water, who has authority to end or initiate fluoridation, and the local/regional history of the practice.  If you’ve been wondering how to take action locally, but didn’t know how or where to start, THIS CALL IS ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!
