Truth about Florides - BelKraftUSA

At this juncture, Oscar R. Ewing, a long-time ALCOA lawyer who had recently been named the company's chief counsel with fees in the then-astronomical range of $750,000 a year (35) -- arrived in Washington.
Ewing was presumably well aware of ALCOA's fluoride litigation problem. He had handled the company's negotiations with the government for the building of its wartime plants. (36) In 1947, Ewing was appointed head of the Federal Security Agency (later HEW), a position that placed him in charge of the Public Health Service (PHS). Under him, a national water fluoridation campaign rapidly materialized, spearheaded by the PHS. This enthusiasm was not really surprising, considering Oscar Ewing's public relations strategist for the water fluoridation campaign was none other than Sigmund Freud's nephew Edward L. Bernays, (37) "The Original Spin Doctor," as a Washington Post headline recently termed him. (38) Bernays, also known as the "father of public relations," pioneered the application of his uncle's theories to advertising and government propaganda. Oscar Ewing, as Federal Security Agency administrator, was a Truman "fair dealer" who pushed many progressive programs such as nationalized medicine. Fluoridation was lumped with his proposals. Newspaper accounts from the period also refer to Ewing as ALCOA's "chief counsel. Later ASIA responding to charges that it had been behind the fluoridation scheme, claimed that Ewlng was just another of its many lawyers and that his fees had been much lower. Undisputed, however, is that Ewing was an extremely wealthy corporate lawyer and that his major client was ALCOA

In 1947, Oscar Ewing, chief legal counsel for Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA), was named head of Federal Security Administration, an overseer of the PHS.
It was he who changed the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to remove fluoride from the regulations that control food levels of other potentially toxic materials, and placed all control of drinking water fluoride concentration in the hands of the PHS. He then made fluoridation promotion an official policy of the PHS.

The Donora Fluoride Fog: A Secret History of America's Worst Air Pollution Disaster

The FSA, in turn, was headed by Oscar R. Ewing, a former top lawyer for Alcoa.
Neither his old industry connections, nor the fact that Alcoa had been facing lawsuits around the country for its wartime airborne fluoride pollution was mentioned in Ewing's introduction to the official report on Donora.
