Alan is an ex-Physical Training Instructor in the Royal New Zealand Air Force and spent 10 years working the health and fitness industry before deciding to retrain as a journalist. He is currently a journalist/presenter at a regional television station, TV Rotorua. He is passionate about getting the truth to the public so they can make informed and educated decisions about their health and well being especially when it comes to chemicals in food and water. Alan became concerned with the fluoride issue after the Rotorua public were not receiving information from both sides of the debate. He believes that there are sound reasons to question fluoridation and is concerned with how fluoridation is being presented as safe and effective without scrutiny.
