The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) is an awareness group made up of medical professionals and concerned citizens alike. Together, they work to promote awareness about public water quality, offering comprehensive information on the presence and impact of fluoride in the public water supply.
FAN is regularly cited by local and international media outlets—including TIME, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal—and they work vigilantly to keep up-to-date with new research, as well as government agency actions that could further impact the public’s exposure to fluoride.
MouthPeace is the movement to educate children about the link between oral, systemic, and planetary health. Health is a functional, structural, aesthetic, physiological, psychosocial and spiritual state of well-being. Integration of all these parts is essential for our global community to thrive in peace. To fully embody the concepts of MouthPeace, which is also a non-profit organization, it is crucial that children be given the opportunity to gain a broad perspective based on unbiased, high-quality science and research. This comprehensive initiative will include a series of dynamic school programs, workshops, and awareness campaigns that will evolve through time as children grow older and world health issues change. We will ensure all children have the proper tools instilled in them to care for themselves and their environment, regardless of income or background.
