Best Alternatives to Fluoridation

Saturday, January 23, 2016 - 18:00 to 21:00

Speaker: Dr. Paul Connett, past Director of Fluoride Action Network

Why is putting industrial waste fluoride in drinking water is the worst possible dental public health policy? Learn how Scotland and other nations implement public health programs that do not overdose children with fluoride and achieve better dental health for lower cost and do not degrade the downstream environment. Ask questions of a prominent international science expert and author of The Case Against Fluoride. It is time for democratic action to end fluoridation in Toronto -- hear local reports plus have an opportunity to sign local petitions and pick up literature. Dr. Connett's books will be available for purchase also.

About the speaker:
Paul Connett is Professor Emeritus in Environmental Chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY. For the past 30 years, Paul has put his scientific knowledge to work by helping (without fee) communities around the world understand the science of controversial issues like incineration and fluoridation. In addition to explaining the dangers of these practices he offers details of the alternatives.

Event sponsored by Toronto Chapter Council of Canadians, Citizens for a Safe Environment, and End Fluoride Toronto.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
