Episode 12 provides a summary of season one of the #Fpollution podcast. >> "The heart of the pollution story behind public water fluoridation is this: industry polluters—aided, in many cases, by government officials—created a pseudo-scientific consensus that inflated fluoride’s benefits and obscured its adverse health effects in a successful effort to limit their vulnerability to lawsuits over fluoride air pollution. That’s it. That’s the pollution story behind fluoridation."   Melissa Gallico is a former Fulbright scholar, FBI analyst, and military intelligence officer. She has a degree in science and technology in international affairs (STIA) from Georgetown University and a master's degree in international security studies from the University of St. Andrews. She is also author of The Hidden Cause of Acne: How Toxic Water is Affecting Your Health and What You Can Do About It published in May 2018 by Healing Arts Press with a foreword by Stephen Harrod Buhner.   *For a full transcript and references mentioned in this episode, see http://www.Fpollution.com/ep12-fluoride-pollution-scandal.   If you enjoyed this episode of The #Fpollution Podcast please subscribe and leave a review.

In this interview, the director of the Lillie Center, Daniel Stockin, MPH, explains the ethics violations at CDC that promulgate the myth that public water fluoridation is a safe and effective way to prevent cavities. The U.S. government's promotion of fluoridation stems from a small team of officials within the Oral Health Division at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. In August 2007, a nonprofit organization called the Lillie Center for Energy and Health Studies filed an ethics complaint against the CDC director and the Oral Health Division over their intentional efforts to mislead the public on the toxicity and health risks of fluoridation. Daniel Stockin, MPH, is a career public health official and former manager of the Environmental Protection Agency's Western Regional Lead Training Center. He has a master's degree in public health from San Diego State University and a bachelor of science in biology from Westmont College. He is currently director of the Lillie Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to energy and health studies in Ellijay, Georgia. View their website at www.NextStageScience.org.

In June 2000, Dr. William Hirzy testified on behalf of the EPA Union of Professional Employees in front of the U. S. Senate Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, and Drinking Water regarding the union's unanimous decision to call for an immediate moratorium on artificial water fluoridation in the united States. In this interview, author Melissa Gallico interviews Dr. Hirzy, about his historic congressional testimony and how the union fought to expose the scientific fraud at EPA that allows the reckless practice of public water fluoridation to continue to this day. Dr. J. William Hirzy worked in environmental and human health risk assessment for 35 years. In addition to his position as a senior risk assessment scientist at EPA Headquarters, he served four terms as president of the EPA union of professional employees and was a Chemist In Residence and adjunct professor at American University. He has a PhD in chemistry from the University of Missouri.

When the scientists at EPA Headquarters formed a union in the early 1980s, one of the first complaints they received was from an employee who was being pressured to conceal the adverse health effects of artificial water fluoridation. In this interview, author Melissa Gallico interviews Dr. Robert Carton, one of the first presidents of the union, who explains how the union fought to expose the scientific fraud at EPA that allows the reckless practice of public water fluoridation to continue to this day. Dr. Robert Carton was a chemist and risk assessment manager at the Environmental Protection Agency from the 1970s to the 1990s prior to taking over as the Chief of Environmental Compliance at the U.S. Army Medical Research Command at Fort Detrick in Maryland. He has a PhD in environmental science from Rutgers University. Links discussed in the podcast: ​Paul Price Memo on How EPA Calculated the Safety Standard for Fluoride 2019 Study on U. S.

When Dr. Hardy Limeback's research on bone tissue led him to the realization that public water fluoridation is a costly mistake, his colleagues urged him to keep quiet. Instead he called a meeting to apologize for misleading his dental students on the safety of fluoride, beginning a lifelong conversation about the negative health effects of artificial water fluoridation. Despite the toll on his career, Dr. Limeback continues to voice his concerns about this practice that affects millions of people around the world. In his interview with Melissa Gallico, he explains why—"I'm passionate. I want to see change before I die." Dr. Hardy Limeback is the former head of preventive dentistry at the University of Toronto and a past president of the Canadian Association for Dental Research. He also has a PhD in collagen biochemistry and is a coauthor of the U.S. National Research Council's 2006 report, Fluoride in Drinking Water.
