Good News: FAN benefactor agrees to boost our numbers

Fluoride Action Network | Bulletin | April 12, 2018

Good News! One of FAN’s long-time benefactors is prepared to help boost the number of supporters donating to our TSCA Legal Fund for our lawsuit against the EPA.* FAN will receive $250 when we reach 350 donors, $500 when we reach 400 donors, $250 when we reach 450 donors and $1000 when we reach 500 donors. All of this to help us increase the number of our supporters in our “legal team.”

You, and any of your family members, can join that team by donating $10 or more to our legal fund.

Currently our total stands at $46,742 from 308 donors. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and for everything else you and they are doing to end the reckless practice of water fluoridation.

When years from now historians write about the peculiar practice of deliberately adding a known neurotoxic substance, that is also a known endocrine disruptor, to the public drinking water, while health agencies cheered on and the major newspapers remained silent, they will find that there were individuals like you who said no, who organized against huge odds, to end this practice. Such a victory will be seen as a victory for community action, scientific integrity, and the legal system.

We hope that you will continue to be part of that community action.

Our goal is to raise $75,000 by May 31. If we make that deadline then we have another long-time benefactor and one non-profit organization that have each pledged to donate $75,000 to yield a healthy legal fighting fund of $225,000. Ideally, we would like the burden to be shared by a 1000 people.

* The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to prohibit the “particular use” of a chemical that presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations. TSCA gives EPA the authority to prohibit drinking water additives.

The Fluoride Action Network together with Food & Water Watch, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology, Moms Against Fluoridation and others petitioned EPA to exercise its authority to prohibit the purposeful addition of fluoridation chemicals to U.S. water supplies. We made this request on the grounds that a large body of animal, cellular, and human research shows that fluoride is neurotoxic at doses within the range now seen in fluoridated communities.

We have won the first two rounds in Federal Court. The first was the Dec 21, 2017, ruling to allow the case to go forward, thus ending EPA’s effort to dismiss the case. The second ruling on Feb 7, 2018, allows us to enter new studies into consideration, something that EPA argued against.
