Dr. Paul Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. Since 1983 he taught chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY where he specialized in Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology but retired in 2006. Paul Connett has researched the literature on fluoride's toxicity and the fluoridation debate for 17 years. He helped found the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and has given presentations on the dangers of fluoridation to legislative and research bodies around the world. This has included invited presentations to both the US EPA and the US National Research Council. With two other authors he published the book, "The Case Against Fluoride" in 2010. In the first hour, we discuss fluoride propaganda and science. We’ll hear about the history of fluoride from dental research to economic interests, including the collusion between the U.S. government and fluoride producers. Paul talks about the dangerous effects of fluoridation ranging from arthritis to brain damage and what can exasperate its effects. Connett discusses the true science behind fluoridation and the CDC’s and EPA’s knowledge of it. Why is fluoridation being forced upon Americans and even being recommended for babies? In the second hour, Paul talks about the stigma behind those who oppose water fluoridation. Why aren’t European scientists speaking up although America is poisoning its water supply? Later, we talk about solutions and what we can do to stop water fluoridation.
