The Case Against Community Water Fluoridation
Does fluoride reduce tooth decay? Is it a harmful addition to our water supply? What are the risks to your family when drinking fluoridated water? These are all questions that have been in the thoughts of many Wichitans recently as the date approaches when citizens can cast their vote and decide whether or not to fluoridate the water supply. This is not only a subject for Wichita, but effects many other communities across the country. The world’s leading expert on fluoride toxicity, Dr. Connett has spent the past 16 years researching the effects of fluoride on human health and the environment. He is the Executive Director of Fluoride Action Network (FAN)… a non-profit coalition of citizens and scientists working to broaden awareness about the toxicity of fluoride compounds and the harmful consequences of Community Water Fluoridation. Dr. Connett is the co-author of “The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics That Keep It There” (2010). He holds a B.A. in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University, England, and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Dartmouth College. Dr. Connett is retired from his full professorship at St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY, where he taught environmental chemistry and toxicology for 23 years.
