Fwd: FAN's New Director Goes Head-to-Head With Proponents of Fluoridation

November 24, 2015  

Dear Frederick: 

FAN's Executive Director Debates Fluoridation on Public Radio 
Last week, Michael Connett appeared on Pennsylvania Public Radio (WPSU) to debate three fluoridation proponents, including a local dentist, the Director of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Epidemiology, and a doctor with the State Department of Heath.  The 28-minute discussion took place on the Take Note Show hosted by Patty Satalia, who asks excellent questions throughout the program and gave Michael enough time to present his arguments along with the latest research.  Best of all, the combination of Michael's points and Satalia's questions clearly showed how little science the so-called experts are familiar with, and how heavily they rely on predictable talking points and endorsements by government agencies and other fluoridation-pushers.

The war on Ina Garten also known as the Barefoot Contessa.

"What's the point of civilization, as Fran Lebowitz has suggested, if not to enjoy linguine with clam sauce?" 

Unless you live under a rock or are in league with highly ethical Vegans there's absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying any aspect of any food cuisine or any edible thing on earth. The problem is not that we can't partake of the joys of the culinary achievements of modern civilization. It's that deliberate and/or unconscious (culture driven) gluttony is often the outcome. Worse yet when culturally accepted "normal" eating habits enter the sphere of gluttony the consequences can be daunting and often fatal. When I inquire about this some people have said "I'm not afraid to die!" To which I reply "Good because it's not the dying you should be worried about it's the living part just before it."

Degenerative diseases cost the American people hundreds of billions of dollars in medical costs every year. Most are *diet related. So is Ina Garten to be hung from the yard arms? Of course not. And nobody should criticize here for her work. However people who see her recipes as part of a new lifestyle (which Ina herself neglects to warn) are headed straight for the hand basket that takes us all to "health-hell.' I wish I could team up with Ina and design her next book, a plant based diet book filled with all the joys of the burgeoning plant based cuisine style which is gaining momentum, and new recipes that are every bit as sumptuous as the ever so refined and tantalizing traditional cuisines we know and love.  Except they don't drive us into the hands of unscrupulous doctors touting pharmaceutical band aids that are not cures in any sense.  Drugs like NSAID's and cholesterol drugs eventually bring on even worse consequences and more serious problems than the original problem.

Interview with Brad Blanton about his book Radical Honesty

Read Radical Honesty the book here:

January 22, 2008 | 9:47am

STADTMILLER: Are people picking up on this movement now more than ever?

BLANTON: Yeah, there’s some big thing going on across the whole world. I don’t know what it is, but I just signed two foreign rights contracts, I sold three books to international rights in Spanish and it’s like the number of translations has just gone up to 14 languages now. I had a Sunday magazine section in the London Times about a month ago and in El Mundo, the big newspaper in Spain in Madrid, about two months ago. I just got inquiries for French language rights and book sales started increasing for me in the United States. Suddenly the whole world is reflecting back, like reflecting back from what’s going on in Europe. Everybody’s interested in the truth now all of the sudden.
