Fluoride Action Network tribute by Prof. Paul Connett
By now you have probably heard the sad news that one of the rocks of the fluoridation opposition movement for over 40 years has passed away. On Saturday October 12 Albert W. Burgstahler died at the age of 85.
Prof. Burgstahler’s last recorded fluoride presentation
This is the University of Kansas Chemistry Club Fluoridation Forum, recorded on March 27, 2013. Prof. Burgstahler demonstrates his usual sharpness and integrity, encouraging the audience to critically examine the standard fluoridation dogma, whilst providing valuable summaries and information, then taking audience questions.
