Fluoride Action Network

Fluoride Action Network

The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) is an international coalition dedicated to raising awareness of the health effects of fluoride ingestion (due to water fluoridation as well as other sources), which it believes to be problematic due to fluoride's toxicity. It was founded in May 2000 and is based in Canton, New York, United States. St. Lawrence University chemistry professor Dr. Paul Connett and his son Michael provided the impetus, and environmental organizations from twelve nations, scientists, and concerned citizens joined in its founding.

The organization has distributed petitions requesting the abolition of water fluoridation, and disseminates educational materials related to this issue via its website. It often represents the anti-fluoridation point of view in the U.S. media, and has been quoted or mentioned in articles in the Chicago Tribune, National Public Radio, the Wall Street Journal, Prevention, Scientific American, and TIME.

In 2004 the organization became a project of the American Environmental Health Studies Project.
