    Using data from the General Social Survey and a survey of 3, Americans on Amazon Mechanical Turk, I provide evidence of a strong association between anti-intellectualism and opposition to scientific positions on climate change, nuclear power, GMOs, and water fluoridation, particularly for respondents with higher levels of political interest. In , René Dubos announced his discovery of tyrothricin, the first clinically useful antibiotic. Convinced of the power and efficiency of chemotherapeutic wonder drugs, Dubos abandoned his immunological approach to infectious disease in favor of one that privileged cure over prevention. But by his enthusiasm waned in light of tyrothricin's limitations, and he changed from champion to.

In the months leading up to the trial, judge Edward Chen made several rulings that carry the potential to shape. On February 7,the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), together with a coalition of environmental and health groups (see Plaintiffs below), won a second major victory in our legal case to force the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to end the deliberate addition of fluoride to the public water supply (water fluoridation). The judge in the ongoing fluoride trial has decided to post-pone a ruling and ordered the plaintiffs to file a new petition with the EPA. On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Edward Chen once again delayed a ruling in the case between the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Judge Chen told the FAN to file a new petition with the EPA while the. 70 years of scientific research has shown fluoride in water is safe. Fluoride in water prevents at least 25% of cavities in children and adults.

Leading health organizations, including the American Dental Association, support the public health benefits of fluoride in water. (Derrick Broze) For the last four years, attorneys with the Fluoride Action Network have been fighting a legal battle against the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency over whether water fluoridation violates the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). A recent ruling by the judge in the case has now set the stage for a federal trial which will include three international experts in neurotoxicity.

Water fluoridation has played a major role in lowering the rate of tooth decay in the U.S. The focus of this article will be the artificial fluoridation of public water supplies which occurs when the fluoride content of drinking water is artificially adjusted fr om its natural level to a desired level of l.2 ppm.

This change is effected by adding sodium silico fluoride.

drink fluoride-adulterated water than in all other countries combined. Although fluoridation is still being promoted by health authorities in major English-speaking countries, there is increasing concern among the international scientific community as well as the general public over the steadily mounting adverse evidence against the supposed safety and effectiveness of fluoridation.
