Major Fluoride-Free Victory

Watch this > Fluoride and The Pineal Gland

Bucks County, PA Goes Fluoride-Free

are happy to report a major fluoride-free victory for the people of
Bucks County, Pennsylvania. One of the largest water and sewer
authorities in the state serving more than 78,000 accounts and 385,000
people in the southeastern Pennsylvania region has
stopped supplying fluoridated water
to customers. On July 1, the Bucks County Water & Sewer Authority
changed their water supplier from the fluoridated City of Philadelphia
to the non-fluoridated supply from Chalfont, PA. 

to the press release from the water authority, customers requested the
change and the authority was “happy to announce that customers have a
choice to use fluoride or not through [their] dentist instead of being
mandated through [their] water supply.” 

U.S. Congressman Publicly Opposes Fluoridation

Representative Dana Rohrabacher, a republican representing California’s 48th
district and a member of the House Science Committee, said that he
opposed fluoridation while giving a speech at a recent event on climate
change. While referencing a number of scientific “facts” that he felt
weren’t indeed true, he said:

remember as a kid, one of the big battles going on was about
fluoridation of the water. Well, I don’t know whether or not
fluoridating the water helps people’s teeth become better or not. I
don’t know that. But, I do know that in this country, we should be the
ones who should be deciding what we put into our bodies one way or the
other. Not the federal government or the local government putting
fluoride into our water. A lot of these things come down to freedom
issues. They come down to whether or not we will control our own
destiny. The fact that we will be consistent with what our founding
fathers had in mind for us in controlling our own lives.”

Congressman Rohrabacher isn’t our only ally on Capitol Hill, his public
opposition to fluoridation is a big and promising step in the direction
of ending the practice at the federal level. That said, we still need
more allies in Congress to publicly oppose fluoridation and to call for
hearings if we ultimately want to be successful. To this end, FAN will
be holding our first ever fluoride lobby-day in Washington, D.C. on September 8. This
will be an opportunity for fluoridation opponents from around the U.S.
to urge their Senators and House members to join Rep. Rohrabacher in
opposition to this outdated practice. 

lobby-day will take place following our two-day Citizen’s Conference on
Fluoride held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Crystal City, Virginia
(right outside D.C.). The conference will feature a day of presentations
from scientific and medical experts, a day of presentations from
campaign and grassroots experts, and plenty of opportunities to interact
with the FAN staff, fluoride experts, and fellow campaigners. 


International Fluoride Free Teleconference

This month’s International Fluoride Free Teleconference will be held this Saturday, July 12 at 2PM (Pacific US)/ 5PM
(Eastern US). The call will feature a panel of experts discussing the
recent legal opinion presented to the Regional Council of Peel, Ontario
that water fluoridation is unconstitutional, it should be illegal in
Canada, and regional councilors can be held liable for harm caused by
the practice. Experts on the call will include Dr. Paul Connett (FAN’s
Director), John Sprovieri (Peel Regional Councillor), Attorney Nader
Hasan, and Dr. Kathleen Thiessen (Scientist & member of 2006 NRC
panel on fluoridation).  
See the legal brief that includes the affidavit of Kathleen M. Thiessen, PhD.
