Fluoride Foes Win the Year - Scientifically and Politically

01-18-2006 12:43 PM CET | Science & Education

Press release from: Fluoride Action Network

Fluoride, added to water supplies, is touted as a tooth decay preventive. Science increasingly shows fluoridation is ineffective, harmful and a waste of money. But the politics of organized dentistry keeps fluoridated water flowing.

Last year, 2005, was a very successful year for the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and their affiliated groups for getting the truth out about the harmful effects of fluoride and bringing negative fluoride science to the media’s attention.

Voters rejected fluoridation in at least nine referenda including Bellingham, Washington, where fluoridationists spent $260,000 to lose against a small group of volunteers armed with the truth and very little cash. Eight legislative bodies rebuffed fluoridation. Five state mandates were deflected. Another study linked fluoridation to bone cancer. Several others point to fluoride's harm. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) professionals ask for a fluoridation moratorium.

FAN together with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and Beyond Pesticides ask the EPA to revoke their approval of fumigant sulfuryl fluoride because it adds harmful levels of fluoride residues to foods - at levels even your dentist wouldn't recommend.

We captured the media’s attention. FAN members appeared on TV, radio and in print.
And there were many other highlights. Many detailed at the following link:
