A “Fluoride” Cake for Dr. Paul Connett

At a speaking event at Brave New Books in Austin, Texas on November 6th, Dr. Paul Connett got a sweet surprise related to his book, The Case Against Fluoride: How Hazardous Waste Ended Up in Our Drinking Water and the Bad Science and Powerful Politics That Keep It There.
