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.

The folks at Fluoride Free Austin presented Connett with a huge cake that displayed the book’s cover image in impressive detail.

Dr. Connett’s appearance at Brave New Books was part of a multi-day tour earlier this month to promote The Case Against Fluoride in Austin. The tour included two University campus presentations, several media interviews and book signings, and an appearance before the Austin City Council.

Here’s a close-up image of Dr. Connett and the cake:
