FLUORIDATING WATER IS RIDICULOUS, OUTDATED AND DANGEROUS

This interview was done previously with the late Professor Joe Cummins.

This week we interviewed Professor Joe Cummins, Professor Emeritus at the University of Western Ontario about his paper entitled, Water Not Fit to Drink. This paper was written for the Institute of Science in Society. Professor Cummins has written papers in the past at the behest of the USDA and FDA, among other government organizations in the United States.

The late Professor Joe Cummins, professor emeritus of genetics at the University of Western Ontario, is one of the foremost scientists active in the campaign to protect the safety of crops, foods, human health, and the environment. Prior to joining Western in 1972, he taught genetics at Rutgers University and the University of Washington (Seattle) and since 1968 has been involved in a range of environmental issues related to mercury, asbestos, PCBs, pesticides, toxic waste, and genetic engineering. Prof. Cummins is the author of more than 200 scientific and popular articles and has published recently in Nature Biotechnology, The Ecologist, and Biotechnology and Development Review. He lives in London, Ontario, Canada.

About elizabethd

Almost every talk show host has the dream of national syndication, Elizabeth Dougherty has accomplished it.  This Bishop Moore High School and NYIT grad grew up listening to Orlando radio and now hosts her own syndicated show "The Dougherty Report."  In 2010, Dougherty created the "Florida Favors Radio Show” and "Food Nation Radio Network" to talk about food, restaurants, trends and evolving food safety policies. Sensing the need to cover more relevant subjects, she changed the name and focus of the program to “The Dougherty Report” and developed an entertaining yet informative show that discusses social issues and public policy.  The show is about people, not politics, and Dougherty breaks down for listeners the collusion between government and big business versus the average citizen.  Having spent years among representatives on Capitol Hill, networking in one of the most private business clubs in D.C. and a former member of Reagan's Presidential Roundtable, Elizabeth brings an insider perspective to share with her audience on "The Dougherty Report."
