Informative Websites

Mission statement… “To deliver evidence-based information about fluoridation to decision-makers, empower them to use it in the best interests of the public, and protect the vulnerable.”

The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) seeks to broaden awareness among citizens, scientists, and policymakers alike about the toxicity of fluoride compounds. FAN provides comprehensive and up-to-date information regarding all aspects of fluoride, from its purported dental benefits to its documented harm to human and animal health. FAN also remains vigilant in monitoring government agency actions that may impact the public’s exposure to fluoride.

Fluoride Free Water

Silicofluoride chemicals are added to public water supplies in only a few countries in the World. No toxicological testing has ever been undertaken on the silicofluoride chemicals added to drinking water. This website was set up to help educate the public on the human health and environmental impacts of silicofluoride and fluoride based compounds in water so that the public as consumers may be better informed of the risks.

“Where is the carved-in-stone proof that fluoride exposure will not scar a child even before the drawing of first breath?” This well-referenced document answers that question with a resounding, “Nowhere!”

This well-referenced document exposes the astounding lack of scientific evidence that would prove fluoridation chemicals are safe.

A list of the many health risks associated with drinking fluoridated water

The chemicals used to fluoridate drinking water are derived from the manufacture of phosphate fertilizer. Captured in the industry’s wet scrubbing systems, these chemicals contain a number of contaminants (e.g. arsenic, lead) not found in pharmaceutical grade fluoride. Of greater interest is the fact that 2 recent peer-reviewed studies (Neurotoxicology, December 2000; International Journal of Environmental Studies, September 1999), have found an association between consumption of water containing hydrofluosilicic acid or sodium silicofluoride (the most commonly used fluoridation chemicals) and higher blood lead levels in children.

This site lists a number of studies linking fluoridation with increased levels of lead and arsenic in children.
