A power outage in Sandy, Utah on Feb. 6 caused dangerously high levels of fluoridation chemicals to enter the drinking water supply, which then corroded the pipes allowing high levels of copper and lead to enter the system. This made numerous residents ill, including a 3-month old baby. The local media also reported that the city failed to quickly notify the state of Utah or its residents of the dangerous contamination.

The CDC recently reported that dental fluorosis, a side effect of overexposure to fluoride, has increased dramatically, now afflicting more than 60% of US teens. It isn't just teeth though. Fluoride affects many tissues in the body including the brain, bones, thyroid, and kidney. It’s 2019 - we’re removing chemicals from our water not adding them.
n this short video, FAN’s Executive Director Paul Connett discusses the importance of applying a regulatory margin of safety in an effort to protect whole populations from the harmful effects of toxic chemicals like fluoride.
The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has created a new video vignette series to provide the public and decision-makers with a basic understanding of fluoride, to dispel myths surrounding fluoridation, and answer common questions. The series, entitled “Fluoride Fundamentals,” is launched with a short video featuring FAN’s Director Paul Connett, PhD, answering the question: “Is Fluoride a Nutrient?”
FAN responds to a new 12 year federally-funded study from the U.S. National Institutes of Health published September 19, 2017 showing fluoride exposure in utero is linked to lower IQ in children. The study can be found at this link: http://fluoridealert.org/articles/fluoride-exposure-in-utero-linked-to-lower-iq-in-kids-new-study-says/
Do your teeth, or your child’s teeth have white spots, white streaks, cloudy splotches, brown stains, or pitting? If so, you or your child may be among the millions of Americans who now have a condition called dental fluorosis.
Fluorosis is a defect of tooth enamel caused by too much fluoride intake during the first 8 years of life. Watch this new short video to learn more, and please comment below if you have fluorosis.

Current evidence strongly indicates that some people diagnosed with "arthritis" are in fact suffering from low-grade fluoride poisoning. Joint pain and stiffness are well known symptoms of excessive fluoride intake. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, too much fluoride causes "chronic joint pain" and "arthritic symptoms." (DHHS 1991). U.S. health authorities have long dismissed the relevance of this by insisting that fluoride only causes arthritic symptoms in patients with advanced forms of skeletal fluorosis, a bone disease caused by fluoride. Modern research clearly shows, however, that fluoride-induced joint pains can occur in the absence of obvious skeletal fluorosis. This makes fluoride's effects on joints extremely difficult to differentiate from common forms of arthritis. In cases where fluoride is the cause of a person's arthritic problems, reduction in daily fluoride intake for a period of several weeks or months can eliminate the symptoms in the absence of medical treatment. Correct diagnosis is thus critical to effective recovery.

One of the little known facts about this practice is that the United States, which fluoridates over 70% of its water supplies, has more people drinking fluoridated water than the rest of the world combined. Most developed nations, including all of Japan and 97% of western Europe, do not fluoridate their water.

"[T]he political profluoridation stance has evolved into a dogmatic, authoritarian, essentially antiscientific posture, one that discourages open debate of scientific issues." - Dr. Edward Groth, Senior Scientist, Consumers Union, 1991.

When people think of fluoride being prescribed for medicinal purposes, they generally think of fluoride supplementation to reduce tooth decay. Fluoride, however, has also been prescribed as a drug to reduce the activity of the thyroid gland. Up through the 1950s, doctors in Europe and South America prescribed fluoride to reduce thyroid function in patients with over-active thyroids (hyperthyroidism). (Merck Index 1968). Doctors selected fluoride as a thyroid suppressant based on findings linking fluoride to goitre, and, as predicted, fluoride therapy did reduce thyroid activity in the treated patients. (McClaren 1969; Galletti 1958; May 1937). Moreover, according to clinical research, the fluoride dose capable of reducing thyroid function was notably low -- just 2 to 5 mg per day over several months. (Galletti & Joyet 1958). This dose is well within the range (1.6 to 6.6 mg/day) of what individuals living in fluoridated communities are now estimated to receive on a regular basis. (DHHS 1991).

Unlike all other water treatment processes, fluoridation does not treat the water itself, but the person consuming it. The Food & Drug Administration accepts that fluoride is a drug, not a nutrient, when used to prevent disease. By definition, therefore, fluoridating water is a form of mass medication. This is why most western European nations have rejected the practice — because, in their view, adding a drug to everyone's water supply violates the basic medical tenet that each individual has a right to "informed consent."

John Colquhoun, BDS, PhD 1924 - 1999
A dentist and historian, John Coquhoun lived in Auckland, New Zealand while pursuing a career as a researcher, dental practitioner and public health official. He graduated from the University of Otago in New Zealand in 1948 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree and received his diploma for education in Sydney. After 7 years service in the national School of Dental Service, as a teacher and administrator, he entered private practice. In 1971, he became Principal Dental Officer for the Auckland Health District. During this period he carried out research in both dentistry and Auckland social history.
Until 1980, Colquhoun was a keen advocate of water fluoridation. In that year, he was sent on a world study tour by the New Zealand Department of Health for the purpose of investigating recent research into fluoridation. Upon his return he was appointed to the post of Chairman of the Fluoridation Promotion Committee of the New Zealand Dental Health Foundation.
After returning from his study tour, Dr. Colquhoun reported the new discovery (for 1980) that dental decay was declining in "western" counties, with or without fluoridation, and that the differences between decay rates in fluoridated versus non-fluoridated locations were much less than had been claimed would occur.
Nonetheless, like many of his professional colleagues of the day, Colquhoun was very reluctant to admit that fluoridation was a failure. He advocated, and his superiors agreed to a new approach based on the belief that fluoridation still provided a marginal benefit. Colquhoun felt he was reinforced in that belief by his superiors' claim that new statistics, collected for all New Zealand School Dental Service patients (98% of the childhood population) revealed such a benefit.
He was shocked to discover, when the statistics were sent to him, that they revealed no such benefit. In fact, in most Health Districts the percentage of children who were "caries-free" was higher in the non-fluoridated areas of New Zealand.
Colquhoun disagreed sharply with his superiors' action in circulating a document, "overview of fluoridation statistics," which omitted the Health District statistical information on fluoride and "disgracefully doctored" the remaining statistics, claiming that a marginal benefit existed.
When, in addition, he discovered that dental fluorosis prevalence (a sign of fluoride toxicity) was much higher than expected in fluoridated areas, Colquhoun publicly changed his stance on fluoridation in 1983.
Dr. Colquhoun continued his research, which contributed to the earning of a Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1987, and was appointed to the post-doctoral position of Honorary
Research Fellow of the University of Auckland. In 1992 he became editor of the Journal of the International Society for Fluoride Research (Fluoride), a position which provided a good overview of fluoride research in different academic disciplines.
Dr. Colquhoun passed away peacefully in his home on March 23rd, 1999 at the age of 75, remaining intellectually active almost until his final moments.
On June 29th, 2000, Dr. William Hirzy was invited to give testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, and Water on behalf of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) Chapter 280 - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Headquarters.
At the time, Dr. Hirzy was serving his sixth term as the Senior Vice-President of the Union. His presentation that day was, "Why EPA's Union of Professionals Opposes Fluoridation." This is a video that documents the presentation along with interviews with Dr. Hirzy where he describes the reasoning behind the professional and official stance of his Union members in direct opposition to the EPA's administrative support of fluoridation.

In this video, Brent Foster, the State Conservation Chair for the Oregon Sierra Club, explains why he came to oppose water fluoridation.
Presented in its entirety, in this hard hitting documentary, producer and professional dentist, Dr. David Kennedy, travels to China with his wife Betty at the invitation of the Shenyang Medical School, and visits villages where skeletal and dental fluorosis have ravaged whole village populations. Local water supplies have been discovered to contain significant levels of natural fluoride contaminant, some as high as the legal limit allowed in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency. Fluorosis is also observed in large areas where hydrogen fluoride is emitted into the air from coal burning electrical plants and when crops such as corn are dehydrated over a hibachi. However the injuries depicted in this documentary are entirely from natural fluoride in drinking water.
The Chinese researchers had noted that in high fluoride areas the economy was distressed and that most adults developed skeletal fluorosis by the age of 40. Farm animals were also observed with reduced fertility and productivity. Villagers were unable to efficiently farm and provide for their families. Adults became a burden to the next generation and poverty was rampant.
Though fluoride damage is generally permanent in the human body, in this video we see the results of the de-fluoridation program conducted in several of those areas that were affected. Pain among the fluoride crippled was dramatically reduced, and dental fluorosis in children was reduced as well.
In 1976, G. Hongxin, with the Chinese Department of Endemic Disease Control and G. Dai, with researchers from the China Medical University, Shenyang, reviewed the history of chronic endemic fluorosis and extensive crippling skeletal fluorosis in China. They identified fluoride from well water as the most probable cause of the extensive tooth, bone, and joint damage, in the residents of over 1026 counties in 28 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities and began a systematic program of water de-fluoridation. Simply reducing the fluoride levels in drinking water to 0.5-1.0 ppm resulted in an overall improvement in health. However, 37.8% of resident children had still developed visible dental fluorosis with some severe mottling of the teeth while consuming water in the villages with 1 part per million residual fluoride in drinking water. Fluorosis is a permanent scaring of the tooth enamel that cannot be reversed. Adult villagers with stage 3 and 4 skeletal fluorosis reported a significant reduction in pain and increased mobility after de-fluoridation had been instituted. Though improved, their condition could not be reversed. The CDEDC estimated that 25 million Chinese people suffered from dental fluorosis and 1.25 million from skeletal fluorosis caused by excess fluoride in their drinking water alone.
FAN has also recently reported on multiple Chinese studies that have pointed toward reduced IQ among children in villages whose fluoride levels were elevated. Studies in other countries are beginning to strongly and statistically confirm the Chinese research.
The producer of this video, David C. Kennedy, DDS, has practiced dentistry for more than 30 years. He is the Past President of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, which was formed to review, support, and disseminate research on the suitability of materials and methodologies used in the practice of dentistry. Dr. Kennedy is currently the Information Officer on fluoride for the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
He has lectured to dentists, physicians and other health professionals all over the world on the subjects of preventive dental health, mercury toxicity, and fluoride. He is the author of the book, "How To Save Your Teeth With Toxic Free Preventive Dentistry," that provides instruction and insight for both professionals and the layman on how to provide and receive toxic-free dentistry.
This acclaimed video has been viewed all over the world, both in Europe and in Asia. Dr. Kennedy has written and produced videos extensively on the toxicology of dental materials and practices, including fluoride and mercury amalgams. Now retired, he has been the past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine, and remains a consultant and dental expert. He continues to work closely with the IAOMT.
Dr. David Kennedy, dentist and researcher, presents an amazing video story of tremendous courage and resolve. Cathy and Wayne Justus of Pagosa Springs, Colorado experience incredible debilitating symptoms in their world class quarter horses and their dogs with seemingly no source or reason. After the death of Cathy's prize horse, the local veterinarian tested for every known possibility for the cause, but could not come up with an explanation. It was not until Dr. Lennart Krook, Professor Emeritus of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine tested for fluoride toxicity that Wayne and Cathy knew for certain what was killing their horses. They had been poisoned by fluoride in their drinking water.
Because of Cathy's tenacious insistence with the local water department concerning the science of the issue, and because citizens of Pagosa Springs had educated themselves, fluoridation was eventually stopped in their community.
We are very happy to report that Wayne and Cathy's horses and dogs are now living healthy happy lives with no fluoride symptoms whatsoever now that fluoridation has been stopped in Pagosa Springs.
Cathy Justus also writes:
I forgot to mention that on the "Poisoned Horses" DVD, what wasn't explained is why my Palomino gelding, Win, is loping along in the pasture with his head down. If he was out in the pasture for over an hour with his head down eating grass, he physically could not pick his head up for hours from the skeletal damage fluoride did to him.

Consumer advocate, Ralph Nader, discusses his long held thoughts and opinions on water fluoridation. Nader has made his public opinions against fluoridation available to the public for over four decades.
American progressive, political activist and five-time candidate for President of the United States, Ralph Nader is also an author, lecturer and attorney. He is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Universities and has served as faculty at the American University Washington College of Law.
Nader came into prominence after the publication of his book, "Unsafe at Any Speed," published in 1965 - a description of the safety record of the Chevrolet Corvair automobile, which had been widely known as one of the most dangerous cars on the road during that era.
His activism in multiple areas of public safety and universal rights has earned him a reputation as being one of the most visible and vocal consumer advocates in the nation. Nader has also been named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th Century by Life Magazine in 1990.
Dr. Paul Connett of the Fluoride Action Network has now interviewed Christopher Bryson in this hard hitting video as the writer describes his discoveries about fluoride and its sinister connections to major policy agencies in the U. S. Government and to manipulation of popular scientific perception by major academic institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University. He describes how a significant pollutant and industrial chemical by product of the smelting and phosphate fertilizer industry was eventually turned into a miracle cure for tooth decay. And, Bryson describes how career professionals were discredited and ruined in order to guard the dirty secrets of fluoride's adverse long term health effects.
Possibly one of the most important books to be published this decade - possibly in the last sixty years, "The Fluoride Deception" by former BBC correspondent and award winning investigative reporter, Christopher Bryson was published in 2004 by Seven Stories Press.
This is the book that uncovered the incredible history behind the inception of the public health policy called water fluoridation. It is the book that stripped away the secrecy of government cover-ups concerning the legal industrial battles of WWII and the poisoning of farms and workers exposed to this insidious toxin with unfortunate lifelong consequences.
Taking ten years to write, The Fluoride Deception has spawned a firestorm of controversy as groups of scientists, researchers and medical professionals around the world are now openly challenging the scientific, legal and ethical logic behind the government's seeming inability to admit how many citizens have had their health compromised or ruined from long term exposure to an accumulative poison that was once used in rat poison and is still used today in pesticides and agriculture.
Once you see this video, you will never think of your toothpaste or your tap water in quite the same way again.
A production of the Fluoride Action Network this video returns to its home on the FAN YouTube channel. The book is available through bookstores and libraries.
The announcements in 2006 by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Dental Association which warn parents against the use of fluoridated tap water for the reconstitution of infant formula does not seem to take into account that the baby does not have teeth until about six months from birth. These are only temporary teeth, and the adult teeth appear about seven years from birth. The assumption here is that less fluoride in the diet during the first six months will help prevent fluorosis. However, fluoride is found in many different food and drink sources, mouthwash and toothpaste that kids encounter all during those years. Fluoride is an accumulative toxin that lodges in the teeth and bones of the body and apparently certain organs of the body as well. Fluorosis may only be the tip end of the problem while young teeth are forming. The announcement does not take into account emerging research indicating that fluoride has an adverse effect on cellular development in internal organs at very low levels. So, more than just the teeth are being affected by the ingestion of fluoride. More serious and unbiased research is badly needed concerning this internal cellular damage. Also consider that babies ingest much more liquid for their body mass than do adults. And, because of this, the amount or dosage of fluoride received each day is much higher for children when compared to that of a fully grown adult. This is the period of rapid growth, and the period of most concern for healthy development into adulthood. Exposure to toxins during this developmental stage may result in permanent damage that follows the individual into his/her adult years. Essentially, babies and young children ingest much more fluoride than the safe levels approved by the CDC and ADA. And, because much of what they drink and eat is processed from fluoridated water, children receive much more fluoride per day than the officially recommended levels. In fact, even at the recently amended level of drinking water fluoridation, mother's milk, the best indicator of what nutrients are best for childhood development, contains 175 times less fluoride than tap water. The level of fluoridation recommended prior to the January 7th announcement by Health and Human Services was .7 to 1.2 parts per million, and was based upon the theoretical amount of water ingested by an individual for a particular region's weather or ambient temperature. It did not account for the wide range of ingestion amounts according to an individual's daily needs. For instance, a road worker in 95 degree sun is going to drink much more water than a computer worker who stays indoors at 72 degrees all day. The road worker would therefore ingest much more fluoride than would the computer worker, and would therefore be expected to see much more serious problems from long term exposure to the toxin. In a surprise announcement, Health and Human Services publicly stated on January 7th, 2011 that their new recommendation for fluoride in drinking water would be a flat .7 parts per million. They stated that Americans were getting too much of a good thing, and that this level had been determined to help prevent fluorosis in young children. Statistically, the CDC now records florosis across the country at over 40 percent of children. Those are epidemic numbers and a staggering number of individuals who have no further choice in the matter. Those who are bothered by their tooth streaks, pits and brown stains when they smile must pay for expensive dental work to correct fluoride's damage. And, some who have sustained moderate to severe fluorosis may end up losing some teeth. Health and Human Services would not admit that a simple adjustment of this amount would do little to protect children from fluorosis when there are so many other sources of the substance in our foods, drinks, mouthwash and toothpaste. Of course, the Fluoride Action Network continues to recommend a fluoride level of ZERO for all drinking water. We feel this is the only level of fluoride that will guarantee no damage to anyone in a population from fluoride's adverse health effects.
In a full length video produced by the Fluoride Action Network, respected professional researchers, scientists, and health practitioners openly discuss their experience and opinions concerning the adverse health effects and ethical problems associated with the public health policy of water fluoridation.

This is the 2nd in what will be a number of anti fluoridation videos expressing outrage and offering solutions. People on both sides of this issue have to realize that poisoning our well with a weapons grade neurotoxin is actually AN ACT OF WAR.
In this video I make a strong case for considering people who fluoridate our drinking water are war criminals and must be prosecuted for their crime against humanity. City Councils who support fluoridation of our potable water are criminals, bottom line, who deserve a good hanging for what they have done to us.
Coming soon ...
