    Update From Fluoride Action Network:
    "#FluorideLawsuit Update

    Yesterday the court held a status hearing with attorneys for FAN and the EPA. We will be providing a detailed recap soon, but in short:

    -EPA will let the court record stand as is, and put no effort into doing as the Judge recommended to work with FAN attorneys to initiate a systematic review of fluoride's neurotoxicity.

    -The EPA attorney said: "EPA doesn't have the resources right now to meet with the plaintiffs."

    Judge does the following:

    -He put the case in abeyance while he awaits NTP review.

    -He will keep open evidence only for new studies / NTP review.

    -He tells FAN attorneys to re-submit an amended petition with pregnant mothers as plaintiffs to EPA whether EPA is willing to review it or not. Judge will monitor EPA response.

    -He says there is still a chance for more testimony later on any new evidence considered.

    -The next Status Conference will be at 10:30AM (US Pacific time) on November 5th."

    More experts raising the alarm
    10/89/20
    https://fluoridealert.salsalabs.org/...5-e8835d85b9f3

    "The former director of both the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health has joined in the growing chorus of objective experts publicly raising the alarm about fluoridation’s impact on the developing brain.

    Toxicologist and microbiologist, Linda Birnbaum, PhD, co-authored an op-ed appearing in the Environmental Health News this morning with Christine Till, PhD, an associate professor of Psychology at York University in Toronto, Canada, and Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, a physician, clinical scientist, and professor at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Till is a co-author of several significant fluoride studies including the JAMA Pediatrics fluoride neurotoxicity study (Green 2019) and others finding lowered IQ, increased diagnosis of ADHD, and thyroid impairment. She received a leadership award from York University, in part, for this groundbreaking research. Lanphear is also an award winning researcher who has been a member of two National Academies of Science Committees, is a member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead Review Panel, and is renowned for his research on low-level lead exposure and many other environmental neurotoxins.

    The op-ed entitled, It is time to protect kids' developing brains from fluoride highlights the mounting evidence that fluoride is impairing brain development, and compares the response from the public health community to its delayed response to the obvious harm caused by lead. The authors call for the US "to rethink this exposure for pregnant women and children," and state that "Given the weight of evidence that fluoride is toxic to the developing brain, it is time for health organizations and regulatory bodies to review their recommendations and regulations to ensure they protect pregnant women and their children...

    ...We can act now by recommending that pregnant women and infants reduce their fluoride intake."

    See: https://www.ehn.org/fluoride-and-chi...7#rebelltitem7

    The Op-ed is accompanied by a powerful animated short video on the impact of fluoride on brain development. It was produced by Little Things Matter, a non-profit scientific organization composed of children’s environmental health professionals. Here is their description of the video:

    “Over the past 75 years, health authorities have promoted community water fluoridation to reduce dental caries. Until recently, however, no studies had examined the safety of fluoride in vulnerable populations, like pregnant women and infants. This video describes the history of water fluoridation and new research that found fluoride is toxic to the developing brain.”



    Lanphear's organization also created a printable flyer to educate the general public on "Ways for pregnant women to reduce fluoride exposure," as well as prevent dental decay.



    This deserves to go viral. Please repeatedly share all of these materials far on wide with friends, family, co-workers, fellow campaigners, local officials, and the media. Also consider emailing it to scientists at your local colleges and universities, along with pediatricians and midwives in your community."

    NEW STUDY

    "Despite decades of using fluorosilicic acid to fluoridate communities--usually toxic waste from the fertilizer industry--very few studies have ever been conducted on the chemical, and those that have been conducted found various negative results (contaminated batches, leaching of heavy metals, high corrosiveness, etc).

    A new peer-reviewed study, published in the journal "Mutation Research/Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis" has found that fluorosilicic acid at the levels found in fluoridated communities induces genotoxicity, contributes to dental fluorosis, causes DNA damage in mesenchymal stem cells, alters bone mineralization, and causes oxidative stress."
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1383571820301686?via%3Dihub"Highlights

    •HIGHLIGHTS
    Fluorosilicic acid is the most used additive for water fluoridation.


    Dental fluorosis can be caused by fluorosilicic acid present in drinking water.


    DNA damage was caused by fluorosilicic acid in mesenchymal stem cells.


    Fluorosilicic acid altered bone mineralization in mesenchymal stem cells.

    DNA damage caused by fluorosilicic acid was attributed to oxidative stress.

    Abstract
    Excess fluoride in water can produce changes in tooth enamel mineralization and lead to diseases such as dental or skeletal fluorosis. The present study aimed to assess the genotoxic effects, oxidative stress, and osteoblastic mineralization induced by fluorosilicic acid (FA) in murine bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs). BM-MSCs were isolated from the femurs and tibias of rats and cultured under standard conditions. Cells exposure occurred for 3, 7, 14, and 21 days to different concentrations of FA (0.6-9.6 mg/L). Cytotoxicity was observed in 14 and 21 days of exposure for all concentrations of FA (cell proliferation below 60 %), and for 3 and 7 days, in which the proliferation was above 80%. Alkaline comet assay results demonstrated significant increased damage at concentrations of 0.3-2.4 mg/L, and the micronucleus test showed increased rates for micronucleus (1.2-2.4 mg/L) and nuclear buds (NBUDs) (0.3-2.4 mg/L) (P < 0.05/Dunnett’s test). An alkaline comet assay modified by repair endonuclease (FPG) was used to detect oxidized nucleobases, which occurred at 0.6 mg/L. The oxidative stress was evaluated by lipid peroxidation (TBARS) and antioxidant activity (TAC). Only lipid peroxidation was increased at concentrations of 0.6 mg/L and 1.2 mg/L (P < 0.001/Tukey’s test). The osteogenesis process determined the level of extracellular matrix mineralization. The mean concentration of Alizarin red increased significantly in 14 days at the 0.6 mg/L concentration group (P < 0.05/Tukey’s test) compared to the control group, and a significant difference between the groups regarding the activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) was observed. Unlike other studies, our results indicated that FA in BM-MSCs at concentrations used in drinking water induced genotoxicity, oxidative stress, and acceleration of bone mineralization.

    Dark Waters

    Inspired by the true story of Robert Bilott, an attorney who took on the DuPont company in an environmental suit exposing a decades-long history of chemical pollution in drinking water.

    During the film references are made to The Manhatten Project where certain discoveries were made, not the first time I've seen reference to TMP in connection with fluoride - may have been connected with the decision to flouridate America's water.

    From Fluoride Action Network's email update today 12/3/20

    "If you could ask representatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) about the safety of fluoridation under oath, what would you ask them? Our lawyers had that opportunity during depositions for our TSCA case in federal court, and today we will reveal a couple of shocking examples of what they said.

    Damning Deposition Videos from the TSCA Trial

    The talking point we probably hear the most from proponents at council hearings, and repeated by policy makers, is that government agencies like the CDC and EPA vouch for fluoridation's safety and effectiveness, and regulate the practice responsibly, so therefore it must be true and we must be wrong. Instead of verifying any of these claims, policy makers have put their blind trust in these agencies. The media outlets, on the other hand, which should be the nation's watchdog, have suspended their professionalism by not only blindly trusting these agencies, but also by discrediting those opposed to fluoridation.

    Under oath, representatives from these agencies proved that their mantra of "safe and effective" is only a baseless claim used to promote a failed policy. In this first video, Casey Hannan, the Director of the CDC’s Oral Health Division, testifies that the CDC has no data establishing the safety of fluoride’s effect on the brain, despite decades of touting the safety of fluoridation for all citizens, including children:


    In this second video, Joyce Donohue PhD, a scientist from the EPA's Office of Water, admits that the EPA's current fluoride risk assessment, and thus fluoridation regulations, are out-of-date and should be updated in response to the collection of studies showing neurotoxicity published over the past several years:

    "There is very strong evidence that at exposures to fluoridated water occurring right now in the United States, children are being harmed." - Chris Neurath, FAN Research Director.

    "This 30 minute presentation takes an extended look into the scientific literature on fluoride's neurotoxicity currently under systematic review by the National Toxicology Program (NTP). Chris Neurath, FAN Research Director offers comments on the NTP review and shows, through a benchmark-dose analysis, that fluoride is a neurotoxic risk to children, in utero and in infancy, at exposure levels seen in fluoridated communities."
