Dr Paul Connett

Dr Paul Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a PhD in chemistry from Dartmouth College. From 1983 to 2006 Paul taught chemistry at St Lawrence University in Canton, New York, where he specialised in environmental chemistry and toxicology.

Over the past 32 years Paul's research on waste management has taken him to 49 states in the US, 7 provinces in Canada and 64 other countries - where he's given over 2500 pro bono public presentations.

In 1996 Paul was persuaded by his wife Ellen to investigate the controversial practice of water fluoridation.

In 2000 he was one of the founders of the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) which he directed for 15 years. In 2003 he gave an invited presentation to a panel appointed by the US National Research Council, which published a landmark review of fluoride toxicity in 2006. In 2010 with two other authors he published The Case Against Fluoride.

Currently Paul is a senior advisor to FAN and specialises in international liaison among groups in other fluoridating countries.

Paul will tell us:

  • The difference between the fluoride which occurs naturally in our water, and the fluoride which is added to water supplies
  • Where that fluoride comes from, and why it’s added
  • The benefits of fluoride to our teeth
  • How fluoride is accumulative in our systems over a lifetime
  • The effects fluoride can have on the brain, skin and thyroid
