Recent Victories




  • Oliver Springs, Tennessee–Water Board members in the community of 3,500 voted to stop adding fluoride
    to the town’s water at their September 4 meeting after more then two
    years of discussion and debate. The town’s fluoride stockpile is
    expected to run out this week. A water department employee initially
    raised concerns over the safety of the additive, and a majority of
    citizens polled on the issue opposed the practice. See short
    video report on the vote.           



  • Multnomah County, Oregon—County officials have decided to phase out
    a long-standing fluoride supplement program at local schools in favor
    of a “scientifically proven” and “more effective” sealant
    program. According to the county’s new Dental Director, “ Fluoride
    tablets are just not an effective way to deliver fluoride to
    children.” Multnomah County is home to the city of Portland, and the
    decision will impact about 28,000 children in 108 schools who will no
    longer be ingesting the neurotoxin on a daily basis.    



  • San Francisco, California—Approximately
    7.4 million more people will now be warned not to reconstitute infant
    formula with fluoridated tap water or else risk overexposing their
    children to fluoride and giving them dental fluorosis. 
    Clean Water California
    has reported that their members successfully convinced the East Bay and
    San Francisco municipal officials to add the warnings to annual water
    quality reports. Click here to learn how you can
    start your own infant warning campaign.
       



5TH Citizens Conference on Fluoride was a success



FAN’s
conference in Washington, DC this past weekend was a great success! We
had a very good turnout, both for the conference and for our first
fluoride lobby day. As you can see from the pictures posted below, we
had more then two-dozen professional and citizen campaigners meeting
with elected officials on Monday (not all are pictured), and our conference room was at capacity on Saturday, with standing room only for Dr. Quangong Xiang’s keynote address on IQ and fluoride.  


Early
next week we will send out another bulletin providing a review of the
conference that will include links to the power point presentations for
each speaker.


   


While
lobby day was a success in terms of the positive response we received
from Congressional staffers and the positive experience our campaigners
had, we still need to maintain the pressure on our elected officials if
we ultimately want to get hearings on fluoridation.  If you haven’t done
so already, please take a minute to send a letter to your
Representative and Senators using our automated system.  Together we can
accomplish our goal, but we must stay vigilant.
