AfD council member organizes against fluoridation

AfD national council member David Whitty has been taking a break from Boston-area organizing to attend to business in his hometown, as this article relates. David has shared his research on possible long-term health consequences from fluoride exposure, and corporate sponsorship and suppression of scientific studies, with fellow residents through the film series he and his wife, Cynthia, screen at the town's library. Ashland's water is currently not fluoridated, and David is hoping that town residents get to choose whether or not it will be. Unless the decision comes from residents, fluoridation would represent a "chemical trespass," the introduction of a potentially toxic substance into our bodies without our consent.

For information on chemical trespass, see this article by AfD co-chair Nancy Price in the Summer, 2007 issue of Justice Rising.
