Why I Changed My Mind
An interview with Dr. Hardy Limeback


In April, 1999 Dr. Hardy Limeback, a leading Canadian fluoride authority often cited by health officials in their defense of fluoridated water, long-standing consultant to the Canadian Dental Association and a professor of dentistry at the University of Toronto, changed his mind and has since become a leading opponent of fluoridated water. Professor Limeback is interviewed by Dr. Paul Connett, Professor of Chemistry, St. Lawrence University, New York. Dr. Limeback explains the events and information that led to his changed position. In 1992 Dr. Limeback recommended a ban of fluoride supplements for children under 3. In 1997 he discovered, contrary to his assumption, that pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride is not added to Canada’s water supply. Instead, hydrofluosilicic acid, a by-product of Florida fertilizer production plants is used.



Statement of and Interview with Dr. J. William Hirzy

Senate Subcommittee on Wildlife, Fisheries, and Drinking Water



Dr. J. William Hirzy is a senior scientist in the Risk Assessment Division of the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Dr. Hirzy is also Vice President of the National Treasury Employees Union which represents eleven professional employees unions at EPA headquarters. In June, 2000 Dr. Hirzy, representing the Union, not EPA, testified before a Senate subcommittee. This 30 minute documentary presents portions of Dr. Hirzy’s statement followed by an interview in which he answers questions about his testimony. It is not very well known that the Union of 7000 EPA professionals (scientists, lawyers, toxicologists, engineers) has opposed fluoridating public water for ten years and called upon Congress to “order an independent review of a cancer bioassay previously mandated by Congressional committee” showing a link between fluoride and bone cancer in young males.
