Help end water fluoridation! Sign now

Dear All,

The ONLINE MESSAGE to Congress is up and running. Please go to our home page  and send your message in support of the over 600 Professionals who signed the statement calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide. The message – like the professionals – is calling for a congressional hearing (see below). Please get as many of your friends and colleagues to do the same.

When you sign your message (which can be personalized) it will automatically go to your US Senators and Representative, that’s why it is important to give your address with state and zip code.

If you are not from the US or Canada, scroll down on the list of states and click on “other” – this way, while your message does not go the US Congress, you will add to the number of people calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide. This is an important total and we want to see it grow, and grow.

If you are one of the 600+ professionals who signed the statement and you live in the US, then please ALSO send in a message and personalize by adding: I am one of the 600 professionals who signed this statement.

If you are a professional and you want your name added to the list of signers, please send these details to : your name, degree, your title or occupation, any professional affiliations, town, state and country.

Remember the professionals’ Statement is the ROCK on which we will build the rest of our campaign. You can now build on that ROCK.

I would like to thank the heroic band of FAN workers and volunteers who worked for weeks to get all the bugs out of the system, perfect the text and the countless other things that had to be done to make this happen. I would like to thank in particular, my wife Ellen, Chris Neurath and Naomi Flack for their expertise and exquisite patience in these matters.

Paul Connett

As your constituent, I support the over 600 medical, dental, scientific, and environmental professionals calling for an end to fluoridation and a new Congressional Hearing on Fluoridation. See link to "Professionals' Statement" at the Fluoride Action Network home page:

The professionals cite the landmark 2006 National Research Council (NRC) report on fluoride in water that identified many adverse health effects associated with exposure to fluoride. Based on the concentration levels reported to be harmful, there is clearly no adequate margin of safety to protect against these adverse effects for the 170 million Americans drinking fluoridated water. Especially at risk are infants and small children, the elderly or frail, and those with above average water consumption, inadequate nutrition, diabetes, and poor thyroid or kidney function.

Ignoring all risks in the NRC report, the US CDC still spends millions of tax dollars aggressively promoting fluoridation and, after more than one year, the US EPA has failed to do the fluoride Risk Assessment called for in the NRC report. We need a new Congressional Hearing requiring CDC and EPA officials to provide, under oath, valid evidence that fluoridation is safe for ALL Americans.

I believe that fluoridation is outdated, unscientific, violates medical ethics and denies freedom of choice. Its serious risks far outweigh its minor (if any) benefits. Fluoridation should be halted pending a new Congressional hearing and any legislation that may result from it.

I look forward to learning if you will sponsor and/or support this urgently needed Congressional Hearing on Fluoridation.
