November 5, 2012 Tomorrow is Election Day here in the U.S., and in the city of Wichita, Kansas residents will not only be voting for a President, but will also be deciding whether to fluoridate the public drinking water for more than 500,000 customers.
IF YOU LIVE IN WICHITA, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO VOTE “NO” TOMORROW!

Please also share this important message from Dr. Paul Connett
This past week, FAN’s Director Paul Connett, PhD. travelled to Wichita to speak with fluoride-free campaigners, the local media, and local officials. Two of those speaking engagements were recorded and are now available on YouTube, including Dr. Connett’s interview on the radio show “Extraordinary Year with Tim Bravo”, and his presentation before the Sedgwick County Commission.
Prior to Dr. Connett’s appearances in Wichita, the pro-fluoride lobby stuck to their strategy of ridiculing the fluoride-free movement rather than focusing on sound science, but changed their target from the entire movement to Dr. Connett. Rather than publicly debate or challenge Dr. Connett face-to-face (or even attend a single one of his events) fluoride proponents chose to attack his credibility with inaccurate and malicious claims lobbed from afar. Prior to his visit, the dental-lobby’s local shell group, Wichitans for Healthy Teeth published and distributed the following flyer that attacks Dr. Connett and the campaign for fluoride-free water.
Here is Dr. Connett’s point-by-point response to the flyer along with hyperlinks and references.
Asheville Debate & Campaign
A well-organized campaign is turning up the heat on city councilors in Asheville, North Carolina. The group Fluoride Free Asheville (Facebook page) has officially launched their campaign to end fluoridation and will be calling on their City Councilors to introduce and pass a resolution ending the practice that has been plaguing residents for nearly 50 years.
Fluoride Free Asheville has two important upcoming events. First, they will be holding an organizational meeting this Thursday, November 8th. The following Monday, November 12, the group will be hosting a Fluoridation Discussion featuring speakers on both sides of the issue at the University of North Carolina-Asheville.
If you live in the Asheville area and would like to get involved, please attend these two important events. Please also share these with others you may know who live in or near Asheville.
