The Truth About Fluoride ~ Paul Connett

Paul Connett, Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network, joined Ian to discuss the truth about fluoride and how this toxic chemical has no real health benefits whatsoever.


Dr. Paul Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. Paul is the Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network and has researched fluoride's toxicity for nearly 11 years. He has given invited presentations to the Fluoridation Forum in Ireland, the Japanese Society for Fluoride Research and the American College of Toxicology.

Conspiracy theories involving fluoridation are common, and include claims that fluoridation was motivated by protecting the U.S. atomic bomb program from litigation, that (as famously parodied in the film Dr. Strangelove) it is part of a Communist or New World Order plot to take over the world, that it was pioneered by a German chemical company to make people submissive to those in power, that behind the scenes it is promoted by the sugary food or phosphate fertilizer or aluminum industries, or that it is a smokescreen to cover failure to provide dental care to the poor. One such theory is that fluoridation was a public-relations ruse sponsored by fluoride polluters such as the aluminum maker Alcoa and the Manhattan Project, with conspirators that included industrialist Andrew Mellon and the Mellon Institute's researcher Gerald J. Cox, the Kettering Laboratory of the University of Cincinnati, the Federal Security Agency's administrator Oscar R. Ewing, and public-relations strategist Edward Bernays. Specific antifluoridation arguments change to match the spirit of the time.

Opponents of fluoridation include Arvid Carlsson, Dr. Marcus Williams, Dr. Charles Gordon Heyd, researchers, dental and medical, alternative medical practitioners such as chiropractors, and health food enthusiasts; a few religious objectors, mostly Christian Scientists in the U.S.; and occasionally consumer groups and environmentalists. Organized political opposition has come from libertarians,the John Birch Society,[citation needed] and from groups like Green parties in the UK and New Zealand

  1. I would love to find out a way to contact dr. connett. My city fluoridates the water. I was born and raised here and I am suffering from many health issues including Hashimoto's Hypothyroid. Our neighbor city Portland Oregon is voting on whether or not to fluoridate water next week. Seeing the ads they are running for this campaign make me cry. I truly believe the fluoridated water played a role in my disease! I would love to find a way to get my city to vote on stopping water fluoridation.
