Prof Paul Connett is the former Director of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), and the Executive Director of its parent body, the American Environmental Health Studies Project (AEHSP).


He has spoken and given more than 2,000 presentations in forty-nine states and fifty-two countries on the issue of waste management. He holds a bachelors degree from the University of Cambridge and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College and is a retired professor of environmental chemistry and toxicology at St. Lawrence University. He lives in Binghamton, New York.

In his fascinating presentations Prof Connett shares his wealth of information, bringing new research to light. This includes links between fluoride and harm to the brain, bones, and endocrine system;

Maria graduated from The University of Adelaide Dental School. She recalls her shock and amazement when one of her lecturers there told the class bluntly: “Fluoridation does not work”.

Over the years Maria became increasingly alarmed by the exploding volume of literature demonstrating harms caused by Fluoride and created an organization in the Bega Valley of New South Wales in an attempt to prevent the local council expanding the number of Fluoridation plants in the area. Maria is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology along with dozens of other Australian dentists opposed to Fluoridation.
