A Recap Of Day One & What To Expect On Day Two

  • FAN’s Director, Paul Connett, PhD has written a great summary of what happened yesterday in court.  Click here to read it.
  • Our Friends at Fluoride Free New Zealand have also created a nice document with information about two of the witnesses FAN has called to testify.
  • A number of media outlets have covered the trial.  Click here to view the coverage thus far.

Today, we expect to hear the end of testimony from Howard Hu (principle investigator for the Bashash 2017 and 2018 studies), who will likely be followed by Philippe Grandjean (testifying from Denmark), and if there is time, Bruce Lanphear (a co-author of the Green et al., 2019 study and the Till et al., 2020 study).

To help get the full value in watching this trial, here are the declaratory statements and resumes prepared by each of today’s expert witnesses: Bruce Lanphear’s Statement and Philipe Grandjean’s Statement. These statements are now in the record and it’s on these statements that their testimony will be presented by our lawyers Michael Connett and Andy Waters, and cross-examined by the EPA’s lawyers.
