In February 2014, Professor Paul Connett’s public presentation in Auckland lead to the Royal Society and the Prime Minister’s Chief Scientist scrambling to defend fluoridation. See the NZ Review timeline.
Professor Connett returns in February 2015 bringing with him Dr William Hirzy, former Senior Vice-President of the Union for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Together they will make public presentations in Thames (Tuesday 24th February) and Taupo (Wednesday 25th February) calling for an immediate end to fluoridation in New Zealand.
He has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Missouri. He has been involved in environmental and human health risk assessment for 36 years, in the chemical industry, then at EPA HQ as senior risk assessment scientist.
Since 1986, at EPA as a union officer, he has studied and followed the developing science on fluoride toxicity.
On June 29th, 2000, Dr Hirzy was invited to give testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, and Water on behalf of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) Chapter 280 – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Headquarters.
At the time, Dr. Hirzy was serving his sixth term as the Senior Vice-President of the Union. His presentation that day was, “Why EPA’s Union of Professionals Opposes Fluoridation.”
Learn why a growing number of people are opposing the addition of a fluoride chemical to the share water supply.
