Delta Dental and the Fluoride Exposure
December 13, 2015
“Fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time.”
— Robert Carton, Ph.D., former U.S. EPA scientist, on “Marketplace” Canadian Broadcast Company Nov 24, 1992.
As usual, this article is full of useful information, links, and data that will take time for you to process, so please don’t just glance over it.
Fluorides have little or no effect on decay prevention in humans.
In 1990, Dr. John Colquhoun was forced into early requirement in New Zealand after he conducted a study on 60,000 school children and found no difference in tooth decay between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. He additionally found that a substantial number of children in fluoridated areas suffered from dental fluorosis. He made the study public. In 1998, he summarized the reasons for opposition to fluoridation. Dr. Colquhoun’s conclusion was — in his best judgment — reached with a high degree of scientific certainty, that fluoridation is invalid in theory and ineffective in practice as a preventive of dental caries. It is dangerous to the health of consumers. Read this affidavit of Dr. John Colquhoun in support of motion for a Summary Judgment.
Secure Arkansas is bringing attention to the Arkansas Governor’s office that apparent fraud was used to set policy upon which the legislators based their vote in support of the Fluoridation Mandate SB359/ACT197 of 2011. An investigation is being requested to bring charges against the departments and individuals involved that used the bogus data presented to the legislators. At the time that Dr. Lynn Mouden was the Director of Oral Health – Arkansas Department of Health, he was also the Director of Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation. This is a direct conflict of interest and abuse of public trust.
See 2010 Arkansas Code, Title 5 – Criminal Offenses, Subtitle 5 Offenses Against The Administration of Government, Chapter 52 – Corruption in Public Office
- § 5-52-101 – Abuse of public trust.
- § 5-52-104 – Soliciting unlawful compensation.
- § 5-52-105 – Attempt to influence a public servant.
- § 5-52-106 – Misuse of confidential information.
- § 5-52-107 – Abuse of office.
- § 5-52-108 – Compensation for speeches and appearances.
5-52-101. Abuse of public trust.
(a) A person commits the offense of abuse of public trust if the person:
(1) Solicits, accepts, or agrees to accept on behalf of any person, political party, or other organization any benefit from another person upon an agreement or understanding that the other person will or may be appointed a public servant or designated or nominated as a candidate for public office;
(2) Offers, confers, or agrees to confer any benefit and the receipt of the benefit is prohibited by this section;
(3) Solicits, accepts, or agrees to accept any benefit as compensation or consideration for having as a public servant given a decision, opinion, recommendation, or vote favorable to another or for having otherwise exercised his or her discretion in favor of another; or
(4) Offers, confers, or agrees to confer any benefit upon a public servant and the receipt of the benefit is prohibited by this section.
(b) It is not a defense to a prosecution under this section that the decision, opinion, recommendation, vote, or use of discretion, except for the benefit, was otherwise proper.
(c) Abuse of public trust is a Class D felony.
There were two false and bogus reports that were used to convince the legislators to pass SB359/ACT197:
- The PEW Report that gave Arkansas an “F”! The PEW Report that has been so widely used is proven to not be accurate! Even the Arkansas State Dental Association (ADA) had issues with the PEW report. (see slide 2) ADA stated that six out of the eight benchmarks was PEW’s opinion with unproven efficacy. PEW had a lot of collaboration with appropriate state officials which resulted in erroneous findings for Arkansas. ADA stated that they don’t agree with everything in the report. Click here to see the Fluoride Connection between Center for Disease Control (CDC) and PEW.
- Survey conducted in a Fluoridated Area and Non-Fluoridated area kindergarten students. It is Secure Arkansas’ belief that these 2002 dental screening studies that were supposedly conducted for kindergarten students in schools in Morrilton, Arkansas, and Perry County, Arkansas never existed! We believe the data was falsified based on interviews from witnesses who were actually present at the time the surveys were supposedly conducted in each school district!
- Witnesses claim the 2002 dental screenings/study never happened at Morrilton Elementary
- Witnesses from Perry County, Anne Watson Elementary in Bigelow claim that no study/dental screenings were done in their school in 2002
- Witnesses from Perry-Casa Elementary, now merged into Two Rivers Elementary, claim they did not remember any 2002 study/dental screenings done there or at that time
We have found NO proof that this study was ever conducted! If our fluoride mandate was based on a false report, then we must have the governor nullify and void ACT 197, and since fluoride is now listed_as_a_neurotoxin, a call for a moratorium on water fluoridation in Arkansas is in order.
The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) requires that NSF/ANSI Standard 60 be followed and that the NSF information for certification should be supplied by the supplier of the chemicals. NSF 60 “Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals – Health Effects” state that for the fluoridation products to receive the NSF/ANSI 60 mark of approval, they must be subjected to toxicological “studies,””toxicity studies,” “assay,” and “testing” of many types. NSF requires “”toxicology review to determine that the product is safe at its maximum use level.”
The Carroll Boone Water District (CBWD) has requested NSF/ANSI standard 60 section 3.2.1 information requiring proper product disclosure and toxicological information and studies from 49 manufacturers and suppliers in the United States and Canada. CBWD. To date the Carroll Boone Water District has not received any reply to their request.
To ensure that the NSF/ANSI Standard 60 section 3.2.1 issue is met, the water operators MUST include a request for NSF 60 section 3.2.1 information in every bid for any fluoride product: the fluoride product supplier must provide all product disclosure, toxicological, information, and studies provided to NSF for product certification plus sending the same information to the water operator requesting the information in a bid for the fluoride product.
NSF International is dedicated to being the leading global provider of public health and safety-based risk management solutions while serving the interests of all stakeholders, namely the public, the business community and government agencies. Our mission is carried out by over 2,100 global employees, including microbiologists, toxicologists, chemists, engineers, and environmental and public health professionals.
The following is from NSF International Standard/American National Standard:
3.1 General (Page 4 & 5)
Direct additives shall be evaluated and tested in accordance with Annexes A and B . The Single Product Allowable Concentration (SPAC) of a contaminant shall be calculated as outlined in Annex A. Under the provisions of this Standard, a product shall not contribute any contaminant to drinking water in excess of the contaminant’s SPAC.
Direct additives under this Standard shall be:
- the treatment or water supply product itself;
- the product-specific contaminants listed in each of the product sections of this Standard; and
- other constituents as identified in the formulation review.
Figure 3.1 provides an overview of the evaluation process. (see page 6)
3.2 Formulation submission and review
3.2.1 The manufacturer shall submit, at a minimum, the following information for each product:
- a proposed maximum use level for the product, which is consistent with the requirements of Annex A;
- complete formulation information, which includes the following:
- the composition of the formulation (in percent or parts by weight for each chemical in the formulation);
- the reaction mixture used to manufacture the chemical, if applicable;
- chemical abstract number (CAS number), chemical name, and supplier for each chemical present in the formulation;
- a list of known or suspected impurities within the treatment chemical formulation and the maximum percent or parts by weight of each impurity; and
- the source and type of water used in the manufacture of the treatment chemical as well as any available documentation regarding quality monitoring of such water source, if applicable;
- a description or classification of the process in which the treatment chemical is manufactured, handled, and packaged;
- selected spedra (e.g. UV/Visible, infrared) shall be required for some additive products or their principal constituents; and
- when required by Annex A a list of published and unpublished toxicological studies relevant to the treatment chemicals and the chemicals and impurities present in the treatment chemical.
On November 24, 2015, an FOIA was sent to Mr. Rogers of ADH from Secure Arkansas for the following information:
- Provide a copy of the dental screening request made by Perry County Hometown Health Coalition to the Arkansas Department of Health, Office of Oral Health in 2002.
- Provide a copy of the response sent from the Arkansas Department of Health, Office of Oral Health, to Perry County Hometown Health Coalition concerning the dental screening request.
- Provide a copy of the dental screening request made by any school in Morrilton, Arkansas to the Arkansas Department of Health, Office of Oral Health, in 2002.
- Provide a copy of the response sent from the Arkansas Department of Health, Office of Oral Health, to the Morrilton, Arkansas school concerning the dental screening request.
*The source information leading to the above request was derived from a report put out by Arkansas Department of Health titled “Oral Health in Arkansas: The Facts”
The following quote is from page 2 “Oral Health in Arkansas: The Facts” by ADH:
“Two separate but parallel studies were conducted in Morrilton and Perry County, Arkansas. The data from these neighboring communities, on opposite sides of the Arkansas River, vividly showcase the efficacy of water fluoridation. In January of 2002, elementary school students in Perryville, Casa and Ann Watson schools received dental screenings at the request of the Perry County Hometown Health Coalition. In October of 2002, all kindergarten students from the City of Morrilton also received a dental screening at the request of the school. (Secure Arkansas does not believe the school requested the dental screenings since ADH never did this study, according to witnesses.) Comparing the data from fluoridated Morrilton to the data on the same age students in Perry County showed twice the decay rate for non-fluoridated Perry County children.
Reference: Arkansas Department of Health, Office of Oral Health 2002. (We are unable to find this oral health report.)
============= End of FOIA of 11/24/2015 =============
Seems to us that if the alleged Perry Co. and Morrilton studies were actually done, the ADH would be using it as major bragging rights. We can’t seem to find any mention of a study done in Morrilton and Perry County or anything about the 2008 survey of which ADH seems to have no documentation, either. (See ‘past accomplishments’ page 6-9 of the below Arkansas Oral Health Plan). Yet, in this article, they talk about the importance of gathering data so that Arkansans oral health needs can be addressed over a ‘lifespan’.
That begs the question: if this is so important, why did ADH not maintain all past data that has been gathered?
We have mentioned the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and Pew Charitable Trust earlier in this article, so we wanted to share a little more information about these (needs an adjective) groups.
National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF)
Total Assets $259129,500 for 2013
Total Revenue $101,608,572 for 2013
NSF International President and CEO is Kevan P. Lawlor – total Compensation as reported on IRS 990 form for 2013 is $2,503,542. The compensation of the other officers of NSF International are also listed on the 990 form for 2013.
Kevan P. Lawlor was elected President and Chief Executive Officer of NSF International in September 2003. NSF International is the Public Health and Safety Company, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1944. NSF provides technical risk management solutions to manufacturers, to government and to the public particularly related to the food and water industries. NSF provides services to clients operating in over 100 countries. These services include product certification, standards development,management systems registration, laboratory testing, training and education and food safety audits for retailers and suppliers.
by Attorney James Robert Deal
The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certifies fluoridation materials to be safe. Based on this certification some states and some water districts require that fluoridation materials be added to drinking water. NSF Rule 60 states that some 20 toxicological tests of fluoridation materials must be done. NSF has admitted that the tests are not done. Because states and water districts make the decision to require fluoridation based on NSF’s certification, and because said certification is false and fraudulent, and because NSF is usurping the role of the FDA in certifying the fluoride drug to be safe, the FDA should to order NSF to cease in its certification of fluoridation materials to be safe.
PEW Charitable Trust
Total Assets $809,837,957 for 2014
Total Revenue $327,878,042 for 2014
PEW President and CEO is Rebecca W. Rimel. Total Compensation as reported on IRS 990 form for 2014 is $1,093,758. The compensation of the other officers of PEW Charitable Trust are also listed on the 990 form for 2014.
The PEW Report that has been so widely used is proven to not be accurate! Even the Arkansas State Dental Association (ADA) had issues with the PEW report. (see slide 2) ADA stated that six out of the eight benchmarks was PEW’s opinion with unproven efficacy. PEW had a lot of collaboration with appropriate state officials which resulted in erroneous findings for Arkansas. ADA stated that they don’t agree with everything in the report.
Pew children’s dental initiative released: The Cost of Delay. This PEW report used erroneous data. For the full report, click here, and also see Fluoridation Advocacy Pew’s Contributions pages 7-9. For details of PEW’s involvement in Arkansas. “Arkansas stakeholders laid the groundwork, but Pew brought to the table their own public health understanding and knowledge.” PEW graded each state on its policy responses to actions each state did to improve dental health among low-income children. The Partners of PEW appear to be in bed with the dental professionals and the oral health division of CDC in promoting the toxic fluoridation of our public water supply.
The PEW report has 8 benchmarks that were used to come up with a grade for each the state. Only benchmark #3 is for fluoride. The Pew Center released the study in February 2010 with the support of Kellogg Foundation and DentaQuest Foundation. Arkansas received a “F” due to two benchmarks using incorrect data. Per the PEW report, Arkansas only met benchmarks 4 and 8. If the correct data was used, Arkansas would have received at least a “D”.
The Arkansas Health Department (ADH) knew or should’ve known that the Pew data was in question when ADH and David Johnson used this report to pass the mandate, since it was called into question a year before ACT 197 was enacted into law.
Pew admits “After Pew released its 2010 report, Arkansas legislators enacted laws to expand community water fluoridation. The state senator who sponsored these bills specifically cited Pew’s “F” grade as the impetus for his efforts.” PEW tries very hard to cover their ‘mistakes’ 2 years after their mistakes cost us our freedom of choice regarding what we put into our bodies.
From the American Dental Association (ADA) News May 6, 2013
“Pew used the federal government’s Healthy People 2010 sealant goal—instead of the 2020 goal—because we [ADA] felt it was unfair to grade states on a benchmark more than seven years before it was supposed to be achieved. Further, Pew did not use sealant data for low-income children—data that was collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services—because officials there informed us that they did not have a high level of confidence in the quality of these 2010 statistics. In addition, relying on these data would underestimate state efforts because many sealant programs do not seek reimbursement from Medicaid.”
The state senator who sponsored these bills specifically cited Pew’s “F” grade as the impetus for his efforts.
DentaQuest Foundation and W.K. Kellogg Foundation are both supporting PEW in their report. Check out their IRS filings below.
DentaQuest Foundation IRS 990-PF 2013 filing
Provided a $90,000 grant to Pew Charitable Trusts
W.K. Kellogg Foundation IRS 990 PF 2013 filing From IRS 990 PF – 2013 filing the following grants are shown: (some of these entities testified before the Public Health Committee supporting fluoridation)
Provided a $250,000 grant to Arkansas Public Policy Panel
Provided a $500,000 grant to Arkansas Department of Human Services
Provided a $600,000 grant to Arkansas Community Foundation, Inc.
Provided a $150,000 grant to Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families
Provided a $152,000 grant to University of Arkansas Foundation
Provided a $100,000 grant to University of Arkansas
The Arkansas Legislators, the Arkansas Department of Health, and Delta Dental relied so heavily on misrepresenting the data in the PEW report that they must have known was in error to pass SB359/ACT197.
Here are the PEW report benchmarks: (Please note that only benchmark #3 pertains to fluoride)
Benchmark #1 State has sealant programs in place in at least 25% of high-risk schools..
Benchmark #2 State does not require a dentist’s exam before a hygienist sees a child in a school sealant program
Benchmark #3 State provides optimally fluoridated water to at least 75 percent of citizens on community systems. (This is the only benchmark that addresses fluoride)
Benchmark #4 State meets or exceeds the national average (38,1%) of children ages 1 to 18 on Medicaid receiving dental services. Arkansas received a Yes.
Benchmark #5 State pays dentists who serve Medicaid-enrolled children at least the national average (60.5%) of Medicaid rates as a percentage of dentists’ median retail fees
Benchmark #6 State Medicaid program reimburses medical care providers for preventive dental health services.
Benchmark #7 State has authorized a new primary care dental provider
Benchmark #8 State submits basic screening data to the national database. Arkansas received a YES.
The way the PEW report was rigged, Arkansas could have passed only benchmark 3 for fluoridation and still gotten a failing grade of “F”.
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
— Soren Kierkegaard
So, public policy was set in Arkansas based on what we think could be a fraudulent study and a fraudulent PEW report.
Apparent Fluoride Deception Used by DR. Lynn Mouden, DDS, MPH
Dr. Lynn Mouden
Dr. Lynn Mouden, former Oral Health Director (Arkansas Department of Health)
Dr. Mouden currently is the Chief Dental Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS/CMCS)
Dr. Lynn Mouden is also a life member of the Association of State & Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD), an organization the PEW Charitable trust donates to regularly. In 2013, PEW provided a grant of $95,123 to ASTDD. See PEW IRS 990 Filing for 2013.
Secure Arkansas decided to look into these questions and retrace what happened, and we discovered by reviewing the 2011 IRS 990 filing of Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation that Lynn Douglas Mouden, DDS, MPH (Master of Public Health) was a director of TWO different organizations AT THE SAME TIME: Delta Dental Foundation of Arkansas AND Arkansas Department of Health’s Office of Oral Health – both which promote fluoride. Mouden used a non-existent survey to try to prove that people in a non-fluoridated area have more cavities than a fluoridated area. Mouden also used Delta Dental, medical professionals, and PEW to move his way up from being a small town dentist to being the Chief Dental Officer at the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Mouden’s whole career appears to be built on lies, cover ups, and junk data. Keep reading to find out more…
Isn’t this a direct conflict of interest between the Arkansas Department of Health and Delta Dental? (See our previous articles: “Delta Dental Exposed – Follow the Money – Part 1” and “ADH Jeff Stone Comments + More Shocking News On Delta Dental” for more info.)
- Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation 2011 IRS 990 Filing (Lynn Mouden, Director)
- 2011 provided a grant to Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation of $225,000
- 2011 provided a grant to UAMS of $150,000
- 2011 provided a grant to Arkansas Mission of Mercy of $100,000
- Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), Office of Oral Health (Lynn Mouden, Director. His salary: $117,396.86)
In case you weren’t aware, the Delta Dental Plan of Arkansas is the vehicle that is used to fund Delta Dental Foundation of Arkansas. These funds appear to be excess profits from Delta Dental Plan. It also appears that Delta Dental Plan is charging excess premiums in order to fund Delta Dental Foundation. Delta Dental Foundation provides the grant money for the startup costs for all fluoridation installation.
Delta Dental Plan of Arkansas INC 2011 IRS 990 Filing
- 2011 President & CEO Ed Choate- Total compensation $504,792
- 2011 Provided a grant of $2,341,306 to Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation
- 2011 Provided a grant of $200,000 to Univ of Arkansas Medical Service (UAMS)
- 2011 Provided a grant of $50,000 to Arkansas State Dental Association
This money influence is used by powerful figures to taint the truth and control the fluoride agenda across America and the world! The deception goes much deeper than most people realize. You must follow the money and the players to reveal the truth.
As you can see by reading the Bio of Lynn Douglas Mouden, DDS, MPH (Master of Public Health), this man is involved in many entities.

Leaders from UAMS backed Act 197, which requires Arkansas cities with more than 5,000 residents to fluoridate their water supply. Delta Dental pledged it would provide $500,000 to cover startup costs for the 32 communities that would be affected by the bill. At the same time that Lynn Douglas Mouden, DDS MPH was the Director of the Office of Oral Health for the Arkansas Department of Health, he was also one of the directors of Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation as shown on the 990 IRS 2011 filing for Delta Dental Foundation.
- University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, Department of Dental Hygiene
- DHHS Child Protective Services (Dept of Health & Human Services)
- AR Coalition Against Domestic Violence
It appears to us that this man has made his way to Washington, D.C. by falsifying many reports… or at least by making false claims.
There is a national alliance between the Arkansas Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (as well as other entities) mentioned in the link directly below. This alliance involves supposed “interests in the oral health of the public”.
Delta Dental Foundation
Total Assets $53,614,047
Total Revenue $8,250,697
Delta Dental Foundation President and CEO is Laura L. Czelada. Total Compensation as reported on IRS 990 form for 2014 is $3,899,548. The compensation of the other officers of Delta Dental Foundation are also listed on the 990 form for 2014.
Why is Delta Dental so concerned with water fluoridation?? Is it for the children, or could their motive possibly be investments and/or money?
Remember what happened with SB 359/Act 197 Fluoride Mandate bill from 2012? Most of the legislators that voted for SB359 received a campaign donation from Arkansas Dental PAC for their YEA votes for the fluoride mandate bill. This data was collected from the Arkansas Secretary of State website filings on each individual legislator. You can do your own search here (ie. type in “Arkansas Dental PAC” and the year in the search boxes to bring up pdf files of PAC quarterly reporting forms, but that site isn’t very user-friendly). The initial start-up costs came from Delta Dental of Arkansas. Some legislators received over $4,000 for this ONE VOTE. This can be validated at this website. Click here for the House vote on SB 359, and click here for the Senate vote.
Big money is involved all the way around! See below for information that could possibly expose Delta Dental and their questionable practices of shuffling money around the country.
Center for Disease Control (CDC)
CDC isn’t what it appears on the surface is the fact that this supposed government agency is listed in the official Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) directory as a for-profit corporation.
Current Director – Dr. Tom Frieden, MD, MPH
Former CDC Director Julie Gerberding sells 38,368 shares of Merck Stock for $2.3 Million
By the way, the FDA also promotes drugs based on bogus industry studies and payments from the drug manufacturers, as Bob Livingston told you in his report “Emails show pay-for-play scheme in drug trials.”
Conflicts of interest have become more the rule than the exception with CDC. CDC receives heavy funding from industry through the CDC Foundation.
The following report report by the British Medical Journal by Jeanne Lenzer shows how the CDC’s conflict of interest may have affected the organization’s decisions on the majority of its issues. This is due to the government ties.
The infamous revolving door between the government and the drug industry is another factor that has done an awful lot to destroy scientific integrity and government accountability. One classic example is Dr. Julie Gerberding, who headed up the CDC—which among other things is charged with overseeing vaccines—from 2002 to 2009 before becoming the president of Merck’s vaccine division, a position she currently holds today.
As studies show, the source of funding alters scientific conclusions, so research reveals that industry-funded research is riddled with flaws, shortcomings, and outright fraud. As reported by the Progressive Review. Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world – published a statement declaring that a lot of published research is in fact unreliable at best, if not completely false.
Here is the CDC’s disclaimer on their site which is highlighted in YELLOW below:
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) includes the following disclaimer with its recommendations: “CDC, our planners, and our content experts wish to disclose they have no financial interests or other relationships with the manufacturers of commercial products . . . CDC does not accept commercial support.”
Secure Arkansas does not believe this is a true statement since big business is in bed with them through the CDC Foundation and CDC Foundation in turn provides grants to the CDC.
“Despite the agency’s disclaimer, the CDC does receive millions of dollars in industry gifts and funding, both directly and indirectly, and several recent CDC actions and recommendations have raised questions about the science it cites, the clinical guidelines it promotes, and the money it is taking. Notably, the report demonstrates how the agency has been less than honest in its publication of disclaimers in its own studies when stating that “they have no financial interests or other relationships with the manufacturers of commercial products.”- British Medical Journal (BMJ)
CDC has a direct “Conflict of Interest” due to it’s connection to CDC Foundation. It appears that a conflict of interest has become more of a rule than a general exception. CDC receives heavy funding from industries, and the CDC Foundation is discussed below.
The concept that the CDC represents the public good needs to be seriously re-evaluated!
Center for Disease Control (CDC) Foundation
Total Assets $85,430,998 for 2013
Total Revenue $44,000,355 for 2013
CDC Foundation President and CEO is Charles Stokes. Stokes’s total compensation as reported on IRS 990 filing for 2013 is $445,522.00. Prior to become President of CDC Foundation Mr. Stokes worked with the Missouri Department of Health, serving as deputy director for the Department from 1983 through 1995. He currently serves as vice chairman of the Atlanta-based Raoul Foundation Board. (It is the guess of Secure Arkansas that Mr. Stokes and Mr. Lynn Mouden know each other very well because they are from the same area. Mr. Lynn Mouden also has close ties with Delta Dental of Missouri and the P.A.N.D.A organization. Click here for more information.)
The CDC Foundation was established_by_Congress as an independent, nonprofit organization, and the CDC Foundation connects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with private-sector organizations and individuals to build public health programs for CDC.
See “CDC exposed as for-profit corporation colluding with Big Pharma to corrupt government”.
The following is the mission statement of CDC Foundation as stated on their IRS 990 filing for 2014:
“The CDC Foundation helps the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) do more, faster by forging effective partnerships between CDC and others to fight threats to health and safety” (from IRS 990 filing for 2013, page 1, Part I, item 1)
The following three links lists the CDC’s Corporate Partners, the Foundation Partners, and the Organization Partners:
This article shows that bogus data, surveys, and reports were used to pass the Arkansas Fluoride Mandate bill SB359/Act197. It also seems that this same bogus information appears in many of the pro-fluoride reports that were used to sell this toxic water fluoridation to the legislators and public. It is also believed that Dr. Lynn Mouden used this bogus data to land a job in the Washington, DC area as Chief Dental Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS/CMCS).
Hopefully, this information can be used to correct this injustice on the public which is harming the environment, humans, plants, and animals.
