Professionals Ask Governor Jindal to Veto Unfair Fluoridation Bill
Date:6/21/2008

NEW YORK, June 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Many professionals world-wide are calling on Louisiana Governor Jindal to veto a bill which would force fluoridation on almost the whole state. SB 312 was quietly pushed through the legislature by PR firms without most Louisianans knowing it was happening. The professionals are asking Jindal to use his veto in the interest of fairness. Citizens should have been part of this discussion but they were not.

Fluoride is added to water ostensibly to reduce tooth decay but according to many professionals contacting Jindal, recent evidence indicates that fluoride poses many health dangers (NRC, 2006).

Paul Connett, PhD, Director, Fluoride Action Network asks, "If fluoridation is a source of pride to the dental lobby why didn't they present their case openly and allow the legislators to hear experts from both sides? The public should be fully informed about measures that could adversely affect their health. This shouldn't be done by stealth."

Among professionals writing to Jindal are Dr. Kathleen Thiessen, and Dr. Robert Issacson, panel members of "Fluoride in Drinking Water," a landmark review by the National Research Council (NRC, 2006); Dr. Doug Everingham, a former Australian Health Minister and Dr. Vyvyan Howard, president of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment. They are among 1700 professionals calling for an end to water fluoridation worldwide. See http://www.FluorideAlert.org

With American Dental Association funding, the Louisiana Dental Association (LDA), hired public relations and lobbying firms to promote the fluoridation bill. The LDA boasts that they have huge access to legislators. On their website they state that their activities include "the use of staff and contract lobbyists, governmental publications, legislative reporting service, dinners for legislators, Dentists' Day at the Legislature, and VoterVO
